Got this in the bag.

And to everyone whining about the 10$ entry fee, it will feed into the prize money. Making the payout more.....

Only very experienced editors will enter and all the others wont even bother. Its only going to be a competition with the same 10-15 people entering who know they have a chance.


I honestly dont understand montages anymore. Its all about the editing and not about the game. When did it become more important about the editing then the clips themselves.
If the clips are good, and they can speak for themselves, you dont need that much, just a good soundtrack, and at least editing to keep it entertaining(like Kampy's)

If the gameplay is sub par, or not very impressive, then yes I can see why it would make sense that its more about the editing because otherwise it could get quite boring.

I try and keep a nice medium in my videos, not going overboard, but still keeping the video entertaining while showcasing the gameplay.

the 10$ entry fee fucks up this whole contest sorry peaple are going to know right away if there video is going to win or get a prize so there will only be entries from a few of the known peaple. The newer peaple will be hesitant to enter because they know they could just be wasting their money.

Isnt that how a competition works...payne used MLG as a comparison, the team passes sell out in a matter of minutes...

Also, just because you dont expect to win doesnt mean you shouldnt enter...top 5 is still good, and I dont know but im guessing top 3 still get prizes.

Besides, its only $10, and through this competition, you and your montage will get more recognition than before. So if you really think your video wont do well, at least you know you will get recognition, and views. Or you could look at it as- for the fun of the competition.

Ahahahahahahahahhahaha



The $10 entry fee is a little steep. $1-$5 would be better in my opinion (not that it matters).

Good luck to everyone! Hope to see some good tajes!

How in the hell are this many people complaining about a $10 entry fee when that's the price of a movie ticket? It's not like they're asking for a kidney, just fess up the measly $10 and go for it.

If you like Halo 2, watch my montage here:

It's not the $10 fee, it's the fact that this contest is designed only towards PayPal customers. Kinda sucks for the cats not yet hooked up in that particular network, seems like the contest will only appeal to those who are.

$10 is steep? Each person having trouble will most likely either have birthday money already received or about to be received, or some other event like a Confirmation, graduation, and, dare I say, First Holy Communion to get bills.

The biggest problem is no one knows what editing is; we all just like to think we do.

I personally think $10 is steep for a competition that's undoubtedly going to come down to a couple videos that rise well above the rest. Once you realize that fact there is no point in entering unless you've created something well above standard.
