Scroll through and you'll find all the HW2 1v1 videos they have going back to when the game came out, very usefull for learning how the top players play and what you're missing :)
Here is an additional all purpose guide you can use. I know there are frequent streamers of HW2 on Twitch if you want to watch them as well.

Glad to see positive responses for new players. I’ve jumped back after not playing since beta, and I have been STRUGGLING. The youtubers I’ve watched all dominate their games, but there’s something I’m not connecting. I can run the same or similar builds, but when the -Yoink- hits the fan and we get down to the gritty of it, if my teammate isn’t strong I get wiped. Going to go thru all of the materials referenced here.
I think everyone here has already provided you with the visual aids you need.

All I can say to contribute is play the game a lot.

Play as much as u can.
Play the campaign or custom games and if you need help with Blitz play Blitz Firefight.

A word of warning, though: Campaign is a little rough on Halo Wars 2 (difficulty-wise).

He is right I had to turn it down to easy on the last 3 or so missions to beat it.

I'm not super good by any means, but if you add me I'll be down to play sometimes!

Heads up: you can quote multiple people in a single post so that you do not post several times in a row.
