what I said in the youtube description:
Sillygoose pretty much nailed what he tried to do here, the edit is just so incredibly clean. If we were to look at this objectively purely on the preciseness of the edit incl. video composition and clip placement (valuing long videos done well higher) this may very well be the best entry.

Hate to say this but I wasn't blown away. I think the hype surrounding this video sort of killed it for me. The gameplay was clearly top notch and on some of the best players out there, but I really couldn't get through most of it because of how generic the video felt. What's always impressed me about SillyGoose's videos besides the trademark stellar cinematography and on point flow is how he's always had that one song or moment in the montage I can remember it by, like the latter half of Sandman M1 or the last 2 minutes of Makowski, but sadly I didn't feel that here. The video virtually felt all the same to me after a point and not even the gameplay could really save me from getting bored. Sorry SillyGoose, the editing is top notch here as expected but this really didn't feel much more special than your usual style and I've enjoyed some of your older works more than this one.

Such an awesome montage in all parts. Really liked the intro idea you were going for and thought if played out nicely.

Should win the gameplay award imo.

Liked that the edit showed the gameplay well. Did not like the songs whatsoever. Like the above said, it just felt so generic. This could have been a pro halo vid from prime Halo 3.

I had the same thing with the soundtrack, altho when hearing of Goose's hardcore MLG edit plans Im glad it was still somewhat tame.

I feel like this was the cleanest edit. This is a video that has pacing spot on for each of the songs for me. Even when describing the effects the first word that comes to mind is clean. Just an enjoyable, watchable, polished video

GP disappointed though

God this was so, so, SO well edited. Really just a perfect edit imo. So smooth, portrayed the clips so well, great theater work. I could use other words qualified by the word "so", but I think I've made my point clear. The intro was fucking awesome too, and funny - I loved that premise.

It had been a while since I'd seen a well done MLG tage in this style and it really took me back to the glory days of H3 MLG tages. The Str8 Rippin Montage entered my mind on more than one occasion, which you can take as high praise, SillyGoose. Amazing job, man, great to see you edit a montage like this again.

On to the gameplay - it was very, very good. I'm a poor evaluator of H3 MLG gameplay, so it's hard for me to tell how "impressive" it is to get these clips, but I was absolutely impressed that you pulled off so many plays at such a high level. I thought you did a good job of preserving pretty high quality clips throughout, which is hard to do by yourself for a 12-minute MLG video. As far as entertainment value of the clips, I wasn't totally blown away or anything, but was entertained the vast majority of the time. There were a lot of "wow" moments, which were awesome... maybe just a couple "omgwtf" moments (at least for me), but it's hard to knock that in a high-level MLG tage. Very solid though, tranQ, awesome job to you, this is something to be really proud of.

Really clean, wonderful video overall. Congrats to both of you for collaborating on such a great montage.
