Round 1 - Pools

Great job, Nv1 & Co.

Great stuff.

Rip the two best videos being in the same bracket.

Good luck to everyone.
Glad that there are still this many people creating content and keeping us entertained despite the current state of Halo. You guys are the best. 

Oh my god, so many hard choices. Pools B and C are just brutal.

Any idea when we'll be able to start voting/what is the method?

Thank you for taking care of this Nv1.  I hope you were able to get everyone's entry fees.

y'all niggas need to visit some art museums or something 
Tbh, I think your tage was objectively top four but you made everyone hate you lol.
Jokes on you, suicide boy.

Not by a long shot.

I love how you're criticizing everyone's tastes after the voting results yet, at the same time, you called Blackout's editing superb lmao. You can't claim to have good taste in videos if you thought that montage was anything other than complete dogshit.

Those were kind of just my initial reactions.  After reading all of the feedback and watching his video a couple more times, I realized that what I was really enjoying was the out of the box creativity, not the actual editing.  I think I made that clear with my comment on his latest video:

"I love you Blackout and I love what you're trying to accomplish, but honestly that was one of the worst edits I've seen in a long time. You need to go back to the drawing board dude."

But yeah thanks for calling me out on my shit.  I know I can seem hypocritical at times.

A video with no gameplay audio absolutely shit on your video, actually.

I want to dive into the psychology of people who actually think this and see what make them have such uninspiring taste/opinions 

 

do you listen to twenty one pilots or just M&M? :)

reading this post next to your cringe avatar knowing that you're talking about your own video is euphoric 

 

this is why I come here 

Uninspired trash:

 

 

Quality minimalism:

it has to do with teenage angst/the release of testosterone 

Hahahaha XD it's Eminem (holds up spork), he's the bEst rapper so must be best gameplay!! XD PUSSY BITCH

It's commercialism

if Roadblock didn't use an Eminem song he wouldn't have gotten a fraction of the views 

 

if you think I'm wrong I'm not 

forgot to vote for the last set of Pools, will try to do it this time X)

Tbh, I think your tage was objectively top four but you made everyone hate you lol.

I mean, honestly it was on like 4th or 5th. I personally didn't vote for it because I just thought it was a forgettable montage. It had some nice clips but nothing that was really too crazy or unique. The editing was just pretty basic, which isn't bad but having some original FX would be nice, even if they're subtle. The music was a boring choice, imo. Not sure why inxy thinks what might be a good song would make for a good "montage" song. But saying it's better because of music choice is quite possibly the dumbest fucking criteria you can base a montage off of, because it's all subjective. All in all, it was just your typical MLG H3 montage. The community has been seeing them for about 8 years now. To make those videos stick out you just need to add something more original to it or have bigger names.

Because I've listened to more music than all of you ever will in your lifetime? How's that? 

 

I never said mine is better because of music choice. I said my montage was the only montage with good music despite a few. Faggot. 

I agree with a lot in your post, not sure why you said all that. It's the other videos which are to address. They're all trash whilst mine is quality. 

My video is a 7/10 tops, every other video in pool A was below 5/10

You guys embarrass me I'm glad I'm not here under my real alias. 

Another thing I noticed in this post is that you called my video forgettable, then told me you wanted a passive aggressive song and video effects... "no"

 

It's only forgettable to people who can't appreciate the common subtleties of good music, theater work, and editing.

I didn't tell you what song to put, just like you shouldn't tell others what songs to put either. It's all subjective. People have different taste in music... crazy right!? I just felt it lacked the sync points to be a montage type song. I said it's forgettable because it blends in with the crowd, and that crowd consist of thousands of halo 3 mlg montages. The theater work had nothing special to it, all halo 3 videos have those kind of angles. There's nothing in that video I'm going to remember about a week from now. I'm sure just about everyone else who watched it once or twice won't remember the intro, outro, clips or song either. That's just how I feel about your video, obviously you're attached to it though.
