Dope stuff, I still don't know how you get people to line up for you... and then not choke. I always choke after the okill I got one killionaire in over 7000 games. This inspired me to get back to editing Clutch 3. I've been real lazy tonight.

Why is the end so emotional?

why dutchy?


Some little points I wanted to make... Puba I loved the style you had going it was so enticing to me. The soundtrack was just my kind of music and it had a great variety actually. I've always wanted to see a tage with futur by uppermost so thank you for that.

The clips where indeed incredible, they just wouldn't end; even after I thought nothing more could possibly happen.

Anyways this release almost saddens me more then anything idk why it just seems like the end to something that touched all of us one way or another throughout the years. Good luck with your future endeavors.. I would be interested in hearing what you plan on doing btw.


WATCH MAI FINAL MAWNTAGE

You're acting like it's every editor's job to make montages as simplistic as possible, when really that's just your preference. In fact most people get bored quickly when watching montages so having a nice range of effects catches most peoples interest. I don't know why you feel the need to give orders to the editor of a montage, and why you think the way YOU do things is the only way.

"It doesn't work that way"? Are you serious dude? What makes you think any editor should listen to how you think montages in the current day and age are "supposed" to be?

Well sorry, i'm just a bit rattled about the fact that you felt the need to write an article about the m4 an literally had nothing positive to say at all. No one is ever going to take your lame ass editing advice from someone barely credible. You are really just trying to say and tell editors to not edit. PUBA has arguably the best flow. Your bash about his flow is invalid. Also I really enjoyed how gassed you got from saying...

Like you must have felt sick writing that.

This was rude and disrespectful. You act like your subjective opinion is fact. I spent around 8 months editing this 13 and a half minute video and you had literally nothing nice to say about. Maybe you should be more open minded and not act like you know better than anybody else.

Edit: i probably shouldnt be focusing on the negative right now. i appreciate all the kind words from everybody else.

I mean, to be fair the editing did get a tad over the top at times for my taste as well. same thing as with Dutchy's M2. some of the stuff in there just kind of was distracting. the majority of the video however was superb puba. props to you for spending 8 months on this and, thats gotta be tough and overall I think you did really well.

Pursuit of hapiness song was amazing, gameplay was incredible, loved all the social slayer clips and the crossmap noscope naire on guardian from s3 in particular and the editing was pretty kewl. My only gripes were i wasn't a fan of the first few rap songs (which is of course just down to personal preference) and as nvincible said all the flashing did get a tad distracting sometimes. Gotta completely disagree with nvincible on the 'less is more' thing though, that simply would not have worked with this. To put all that gameplay in a more simply edited montage would've made it like 20 minutes long or something stupid, so they'd have to put less gameplay in taking away from the montage overall.
Anyways, AMAZING job guys, it's incredible to finally see this come to fruition after all the will it / won't it happens for the last year or so, for the first time in my life i can confidently say that this montage has better gameplay than apex
