man i'm just going to delete all my comments off this video. after reading through some of the things you said I have absolutely no idea where you're pulling your arguments from. just some things i want to point out:
1. I never explicitly said AC was bad. I did
say: "Just because they're a big name doesn't mean they're amazing". I'm sure they're great. I just didn't see the amazingness you were talking about. They were 3v1ing you and you still managed to kill their necro. Also you killed the same necro 3 times in the video which leads me to believe that you were simply trying to promote the level of their skill for your own gain.
2. I don't know why you're criticizing my own video when I explicitly state in my video description that "THESE KILLS ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT THAT IMPRESSIVE". I wasn't saying that I was better than you at any point in time. I was just saying to humble yourself instead of trying to perpetuate that you're this "amazing, innovative" PvPer (the C&D you mentioned during the other fight with AC, the warrior/guardian...really? brilliant use of C&D? as if no one else uses it to use backstab, come on). I may have come off as blunt but I never tried to say that I was better than you in PvP in any way, shape, or form. The way your video description and your responses to my comments were worded made it seem like you thought you were the most amazing PvPer on the planet. Which I don't think you actually believe, but seriously. Keep those things out of a video description if you don't want flame for that. Anyone that read my first major post on these forums will tell you that projecting that kind of superiority complex is not a solid way to receive positive feedback.
3. I think it's great that you want to try and extend your "artsy" agenda to the gaming community...but don't try to tell me I'm an "amateur" video editor just because I haven't studied film at the depth that you have. I threw together that montage in about an hour using Adobe AE and Sony Vegas.
Basically what I'm saying:
Your agenda really just comes off as snobby, especially through your responses to my comments, which I tried to word as humbly as possible. They may not have come off as such because honestly, it's hard to project inflection/connotation through a computer screen, but just know that I didn't mean to critique the video, just what you were trying to promote about the video.
Good luck convincing the gaming community to appreciate your style, I guess.
and LOL at your second account on Guru "praising" the amazingness and the "melancholy and sombre" (try to imagine someone saying that in a really snobby, pretentious tone) in your video. funny shit.
