Do you get it now...?
I am SO FUCKING GLAD that not everybody shares your opinion, because according to you apparently, everybody has to subscribe to a certain type of video for it to go whatever you call 'up and beyond'. I loved Roadblock's because of the lack of crazy stupid editing that is in every fucking video nowadays. The game play was so clutch, making the video have alot of re-watch value. I surely can't sit through 10 minutes of one of your over-edited eye blasting videos where all you see is some random's head being blown off then the clip changes. Everyone has a different opinion on what is good and what is bad. You get a bad vibe that a different style of video is beating youre style of video, an youre getting butthurt? I have a suggestion. STOP FUCKING EDITING HALO VIDEOS. There, problem solved. Otherwise, get the fuck over it? Yeah. That.

Drop the act and be realistic. Roadblock's tage in the top 3 encourages people to make videos with less effort put into them...and that's bad. Ya, translucent editing, highlight style film instead of artistic style film etc whatever, it's still detrimental to the community and encourages lower quality films.



Who said this competition is about deserving anything? The point of the competition is to encourage higher quality videos. That means, a step up from whatever was considered "high quality" last year for example, or LAST COMP. Outside of RB's tage being in the top 3, this competition has accomplished that. However, it's detrimental to the development of the community to be praising RB's video when a video like Tizoxic's(or any other pro tage) brings everything RB's video brings, AND MORE.

You really need to stop putting up this fake front. If you're going to be fake and not post your thoughts there's no point in arguing with you, you know RB's vid in the top 3 is bullsh.t, and you know there was nothing impressive in 3 that made the top 10 over a bunch of solid pro entries.

Your point of view is very humble, but humility is often accompanied with ignorance, and you my friend are being ignorant right now.
This is very... disappointing to me that you honestly believe that.

You are completely convinced that other people are required to like your video based on how much editing work it took. It's almost as if you feel justifiably entitled to it, as if subjectivity does not exist in entertainment and your preference on editing is the correct preference.

You are also completely convinced that the editing component of video making is not in the same league as the gameplay component of montage making. The important of editing vs footage is subjective, not objective. You really need to lose the editing ego-trip; editing may require more work and less "fun time" then obtaining footage, but at the end of the day, both are equally critical, and equally capable of creating an awesome video on its own.

In entertainment, what you prioritize over the other is nothing more than personal preference; the only wrong answer is the one who claims his answer is correct in an absolute sense. That's what you are doing right now. It's time to grow up and respect other people who have released something successful, regardless of if you agree with those who embrace it. Roadblock's success isn't teaching people to create "bad" videos because it's not a bad video in the first place. If anything, it's teaching people how powerful gameplay can be. Apex did that, and I suppose we needed a reminder.

You're being very closed-minded and condescending right now. I believe the very nature of competitions bring out the worst in people, because this is not the pTw I know.

Maybe its time for you guys to realize that you dont have to spend that much time to make a great video.

Those videos with tons of editing still get good reviews.. look at Dutchy and pretty much all the videos in this contest. Roadblock is just a video that was really chill and had an amazing feel.

You are literally crying over the fact that a video with less than a week spent on it is beating a video which had 3+ months spent on it.

This is a competition, people vote for which one they like the most. Obviously lots of people liked Roadblocks montage.

stop crying.

edit: just noticed frags post. Pretty much what I mean. I just said it in a way worse way because i am an uneducated canadian.

Just sayin'. Contractus had replay value, FA did not. The only thing that was really special about it was the intro.



You can follow tutorials better than Jake and Billy can, would you like a cookie?
You are a f..king idiot. Go read your post on what you posted in FA's thread before you two face yourself to dumbf..king b..ch. So tired of you kid. Yes this is what happens when you are tired of a little 15 year old kid who thinks he has an ego to even say mattisons work wasn't special. When what seraphic, what project have you released. Remind us all please do. If you are going to sit here and two face the sh.t out of mattisons vid i would f..king gladely like to hear what you have done that is better. There is a reason it got how much recognition it did. You will never evereververgerverveverververf..kingever create something as good as FA. Why? Because you are a f..king little twat that thinks he is something on this site when really you are nothing. Loose your f..king ego and release something, im sure everyone is waiting to see you pull off the greatest f..king video of all time. Renzo said it perfectly imo. This competition has turned into purely a popularity contest. This sh.t shoulda been on mlg so the community could of just voted on the best video, which probably would still be dutchy but at least the other results would be better. IM ANGRY
