Edit: Also, why do you not like matchmaking clips, skols? Just curious.
I've never entirely understood the notion of clips on bad kids, which is what 90% of the matchmaking clips i've seen (from h2c) are. I understand you don't always choose who you play against, and i'm not saying high multi clips cant be impressive... I just think halo 2 has so much depth as to what makes a clip and you can make your own gameplay unique without having to do shit like mongoose launch and jump off of icicles - both are awesome things btw. I think halo 2's montage merit is centered around how badly you can outplay some one, not how high your multi can get. There are tons of tools to use in your h2 game that make gameplay worthwhile and i think h2c montaging, despite being in 2015, should try and make a return to building on what made h2 videos so great rather than adopting the new-halo social mantra or going back to 2009-2010 with rampant no nade and near-staging (something i was there for and have no preference for anymore).
I'm not saying you can't get good clips in MM, i'm not saying that all MM clips automatically have no merit, and i'm not saying that all matchmaking kids are bad and you can't outplay them in fashionable ways - It's a shitty position to be in right now cutting for an h2c montage because customs still barely work, and when you do get a lobby the registration is so awful it's not worth playing. competitive h2c fours are nonexistent. Conversely matchmaking is almost as unreliable and the amount of kids i've matched that i would invite to play customs with me from h2c playlist is almost zero. kids in that playlist = black belt window lickers.


That's just my opinion, and i know it's not a popular one. All i know is if i was still in highschool trying to get recruited for lacrosse, i'd be sending in the gametapes where i had a couple points against the best competition i played, not the games where i put up 8 goals against kids who sucked dick - easiest way to not get taken seriously by a coach, and the easiest way to not have your montage taken seriously as well. Go make a "social" tage in any other Fragvid community that isn't cod (outside of promod) or halo- you'll get laughed at....and that's why console gaming fragvids get laughed at constantly by other FPS communities.

Bottom line: Cut what you like, cut what you think looks good.


Best of luck with your vid mike, i'm subbed to you on youtube so i've been keeping track with your DVR stuff.

well, he doesn't want to make a montage to apply for an mlg team, so he shouldn't even think about the opponents in his clips

I just said my opinion because i was asked what it was. It isn't anything other than an opinion. Why you feel the need to constantly combat people who prefer competitive gameplay over social is pointless and beyond me.

Can you post some of the clips?

May be interested in throwing something together for you.

I agree with most of what Sk0ls said. I think matchmaking clips are fine if you have standards. Saving a BXR double kill on a guest or a single 3 shot kill on a player who can barely move and aim simultaneously isn't too impressive. However, if you can string those together (get a kill, BXR the dub, and 3 shot the trip) I feel as if the clip can hold some weight in a montage. Granted, it won't impress many players, but it's still solid enough to put in a montage.

As Sk0ls said though, H2C is practically unplayable if you aren't host. Shots hardly register and that severely impacts off-host players when trying to obtain clips. Customs are still broken and matchmaking is hardly functional to say the least. I feel as if this works in your favor though because currently the MCC standards are pretty low for H2C and if your clips are somewhat decent, you'll get some good feedback.

At the end of the day, a montage is a collection of your best moments, matchmaking or not. If you felt each clip was good enough to save, cut and upload for an editor, then don't worry about what we say.

Anyway, I am looking forward to your montage. Hope you find an editor soon!

I like MM clips in montages. I feel like it sort of "forces" some variety into a vid since MM doesn't always give you the ~*~MLG~*~ maps/settings.

I don't, I like all kinds of gameplay. Twice isn't constantly.

i certainly understand where sk0ls is coming from, ideally i would be playing mlg 4's and stuff but MCC is still a complete shit show

the same clip vs really good players definitely adds something in my mind
