Well, Clouds clips did show a lot of skill, but I don't think it did it as much as some other stuff

I was talking solely in terms of skill. As I mentioned earlier, you need flash, and you need skill. And yes, there isn't any objective correlation between "best" clips, and most skillful clips. It comes down to personal preference for what blend of flash and skill "wows" you the most.

I liked Apex, but it's not my cup of tea. However, I do recognize how popular the social video genre is, and Apex was the best damn social video to ever come out. I don't think it being Kampy's last video has much to do with how successful it was. If you watch social montages, regardless if you love em or hate em, after watching Apex you know it was a mile stone video within that very popular genre.
I'm not going to argue with you because it's just going to get stupid. Anyone with a brain knows Roadblock's vid in the top 5 is kinda messed up. And anyone with half a brain knows it's FUCKED UP that 3 is the only pro video in the top 10. There's other inconsistencies...however, the only thing that seems to be going RIGHT is that Dutchy's is likely to win this comp, and that's what people are bitching about, it's absolutely pathetic.

Also, Social vid genre, wow...LOL this is why I refuse to argue with you. Again, imagine if it was Vidol's Apex...

If you were into gameplay, you'd appreciate it. You told me yourself you've only edited, so I understand why it's absurd to you.

Try to look at it not as an artistic video, but as a highlight reel. The editing and presentation are essentially translucent; it lets the plays speak for themselves. That can be good, that can be bad. It depends on how good the footage is.

In his case, many agree the footage was strong enough to make the video a classic.

If Vidol's name was swapped with Kampy, it still would have been considered the best social video to date. It's very disrespectful that you keep pulling the "name" card, you sure didn't like it when people did it to you up at Eve-films the other day. Don't stoop down to that level, you're better than that

As for the social vid genre, how can you ignore it? You'd have to of closed your eyes for the past 5 years on this site to not recognize how popular it is.
