I agree wholeheartedly. These are definitely the pros/cons.

I might add that having a higher sensitivity requires much more finesse, as the higher speed makes it easier to completely turn over someone whereas at a lower one you'd have stopped.

Anyone can play on any sensitivity. It is not a variable for how sick a clip is. All that matters is a player's performance; people should play on what they're comfortable with. It could be 1, it could be 10. All that matters is their performance on it. This goes for both PC and console gaming. Any pro player will tell you that.

I'm playing devils advocate here, because everyone is so quick to bring up noobs in montages based on social gameplay (aka Kampy or Dutchy) yet nobody ever points out that having teammates like SK, Heinz, Neighbor, etc might also make getting clips much easier as well. Think about it this way, having a team spawn trapped in their base, or having complete map control probably provides better opportunities at getting clips.

Just saying...

I'd say the exact opposite. Having amazing players on your team makes getting clutch clips harder because you are never really put in many situations where you have to take on the entire other team. Everyone is doing their job as a team, and everyone on your team is amazing, so all you get most of the time are clean up kills, team shooting, and single out BRs.

I think this was the case with Cloud's montage.

But what about teamshotting, constantly weakened enemies, and exceptional callouts? Wouldn't you consider those as aids when it comes to getting clips?

Sensitivity affects your performance...but yeah people should play with what they're comfortable with, however, that doesn't mean higher sensitivity kills don't look cooler cuz they do. A 180 no scope is much cooler on 10 sens than on 1.

Oh yeah, you'll get a lot of clean-up kills, some of which will result in an exterm... but since when have clean-up multikills been considered "sick"? Very rarely are they put in a situation where they have to go clutch against the entire/most of the other team because their teamwork and team skill is so great.

I dunno who to vote for. I'm hoping one of the pro tages wins it, bout the only other vid I'd consider voting for is Roadblock's.

Didn't vote in the last category either.

And I completely agree, and most clips that are clean up kills are considered to be sick, or clutch. But to be completely honest, and as QSK had mentioned earlier, there are actually very few clips like that to begin with (clutch or truly skillful). I just watched N/H again, namely the last few clips BestMan pointed out, and in almost every case, the people Hysteria was shooting were either not looking at him (focusing on his teammates), weak from his teammates, being spawn trapped, or coming up a lift. I'm not saying that makes them bad clips. All I'm saying is.... just because he's playing other pros or MLG 50s (which everyone that is half way decent at this game should know means very little) doesn't automatically make their clips better than everyone else's.

I guess overall, it probably evens out, but I am simply saying to everyone, don't be so quick to put a pro's gameplay above guys like Dutchy or Kampy. There's no need to open that debate up again though. Like I said, just playing devils advocate.
