    I am not sure this could be done without assisting...Gorth? Good times over here. You all should come over for some open world.

    Hmmm, well I'll be honest critic if you like...

    You had a somewhat good opening. The tunnel fit well with RIFT(though it looked more mechanical than organic such as the rifts in the game), but the typography just didn't fit at all in the opening or in the rest of the video. Also Was there a reason that the video was so small in size? It's quite difficult to see anything beyond the damage numbers. I felt the black space around the video was wasted and that space could've been used either for a frame to compliment the video itself or allow the video to be bigger and more clear.

    Sound was good quality, but I'd pick different music personally. While it is inherently a personal preference, I felt that the music choices just didn't fit with the video and that the consistency in musical style wasn't there. In addition the random voices throughout threw me off and after watching it again they didn't exactly seem to me within the context(being the unity of the visual and audible) all that important unless you're trying to emphasis on the team and not yourself.(in which case having a higher quality video to let us see how you're interacting with your team would help)Usually I'll go with either one or the other, but if you're going to have music and voices lower the volume on the music a bit more.

    I can only assume this is a rough idea of how you wish to layout your videos in the future and in that case it serves as a good base, however in its current state it needs work. Hope that helps, look forward to seeing what you do later.

    I'm down with everything that guy says, as far as the video goes. Good PvP on the other hand.

    As of currently, I make my videos rapid fire. I cater the music to myself and the style of music I listen to while gaming. I'm also no expert movie maker, I've only been making them about a year. I appreciate the feedback.

    The reason for me displaying things so small is so people can't see my micro fighting. I will give small tips but I'm not trying to give out free tutorials on how to play mage..not saying I do it very well, because we all have our flaws. For instance I don't de-taunt enough.

    And currently dubstep is the most popular gaming music. So I don't think the music was all that bad. The cocky first song was implemented as a BiS pun.

    Well... I freaking liked it in any way and shape. Good music, excellent gameplay (everyone seems perfectly calm and just professional) and very entertaining

    And I envy your hardware. I would have had like 0.01 fps in encounters like that.

    Thanks, we really got an awesome group of guys and 4 gals. I had a nice time making this video. Got a few more I'm going to push out on this server.
    Thanks again

    This is a pretty good one Power. I agree you need to work to make the video, bigger? Not sure why it was small unless it was for the text.

    - Enjoyed

    - Devouring shadow ticks between 800-2164 is OP as hell

    - I believe to each their own in music tastes but Eminem...really?

    - intro would have been better if it ended is some king of nice spell special effect when you got at the end of the pc line tunnel as opposed to generic text

    keep them coming though - I love a daily dose of pvp vids

    It's mainly because when I'm using devouring my empowered darkness is normally toggled. Void Bolts will go as high as 4200. P8 now since yesterday with hammerknell offhand = madness
