Of those 200 or so voters, a very good majority are members who have been around this site long enough, have been involved, or have contributed enough to recognized a good halo montage when they see it. Honestly, I just can't see there being more than a handful of voters voting for Dutchy simply for the fact that he's Dutchy. And that obviously isn't going to push M2 ahead of the rest of the videos by the margin it currently is.

And one last thought, even if the fanboys are "skewing" the results, too bad. They are members with 50+ post that are entitled to their opinion, so stop crying. Don't like it? Don't participate in this competition.


How I feel too.

EDIT: That's just how I roll playa'.

Not to say the other competitors are unexperienced, or whatever...

Anyways, Dutchy, you like M2, Exus likes M2, anyone with a sane mind likes M2, whats done is done :P
I don't hate M2 because it is better, i dislike it somewhat because I expected some crazy original sick editing from exus because Dennis was being so fucking stuck up for 17000 years before the release, then he released that extremely generic video. Sure, the editing is good, he masked some shit to perfection, and did some neat effects, and then soem really generic ones. But it's only difference from the average social tage thats released every day, is it's doen a little bit better. I mean come on, generic rock, overused effects (He even took an effect from Alive, my favorite CSS movie) and your run-of-the-mill social gameplay. Sure, you might have enjoyed it, to each their own, but I don't think something that has been done (generic tage hurr) 500 times should win a competition, I would much rather see something that's new, original, and still good, win.

That's why I vote for things other than M2.

Exus did that Alive effect before even knowing of Alive. So wait .. you don't like generic, but you do like Fray? lolol. Also, idk why you even brought that post up, it has completely nothing to do with what we've been talking about. You just repeated what you've said in 19 other threads? Also people should stop thinking that if the music is generic for them, the concept of the video it's editing is automatically generic aswell. Exus his editig wasn't generic, except for some of the screenshakes and 1 graph at the end of the 1st song (wich was still done much better that most ones.)
join the revolution.

What are you talking about? M2 is the only social tage (if you can call it that, the majority of the clips were MLG) that has editing thats even close to that caliper. Everything else is like apex or G2G or fun things that focus mainly on GP.

You're taking the minority of the tage and waving off the entire video as generic. We've had this discussion. 70-80% of the effects were original and served a purpose, the sync and flow were golden, the intro was original and powerful, blah blah blah to much to get into. It was a good vid that didn't completely break the norm but pushed it to new heights, which is something I haven't seen since the str8 tage, which also was overedited. You have a different opinion and thats fine, but we're just talking about how fanboyism is influencing the voting, which is laughable if you think about it.

Dutchy's montage is the best. If you don't accept that, you're ignorant.

Dutchy's intro and the countdown was amazing, but after that I enjoyed it but not as much as Contractus. The intro brought out emotion but the body didnt. Contractus' body did. Nv1ncible edited the climaxes in the second song so well.
