    Vigrid Tournament Round 2 Coverage Video!

    Hello all!

    The past couple days I've spent many hours putting together another "highlights" video of Round 2 of the Vigrid tournament! I've got to leave my computer for a couple days (don't worry I'm coming back!) So I figured I would release the first portion before it was yesterday's news! Behold... (queue drum roll)... my video:

    Now I'm very new at this, so be gentle on me. Time permitting I'd like to keep the series going. This video took me many many hours to put together so I hope you guys like it. Also, if you have any suggestions for music or adjustments to my presentation style feel free to let me know; this is only the second edited video I've ever made! (and I am in no way qualified or trained to do this)

    Great coverage! And I'm sure you got into so much trouble in compiling this.

    ** One small remark is your audio voice-over volume. It's too low! (even though the music is awesome too )
    ** One suggestion would be requesting some sort of video/audio response from each of the combatants, having presented them the video-sample you're planning to use. It'd be fun to hear Kuba's curses when he missed that shot!

    My shout of joy was quite impressive.

    Really liked the silly quotes from the various unit teams.

    Yea seems like some potential could be had machinima style, like having people voice over units from a recorded match haha

    Actually there were no curses from me , although sometimes I curse a lot. When I let RNG decide outcome of match, I consider it my failure, because I lost control. Also I expected to lose 0-2 two times and be out, so for me it was pleasant surprise, even I lost. Maybe I get into tournament highlights with this moment of Lady Luck not smiling on me .

    Slimsy: Nice work on video, maybe music could be less louder, sometimes I had problems to hear your voice. I guess I use "???" as my location from now on.

    Not even an exclamation? That would be even funnier. Cursing in a foreign language (especially from a country such as "???") is not always interesting. On the other hand, moaning, weeping or grunting are universal!

    I was more like "OMG I might win this and get to next round. Please hit him. Ouch, and my chance is gone ."

    Great work Slimsy :]

    Now You got me wondering if a battle vid could be made more dynamic by speeding parts of it, adding faster/heavier music and shaking it a bit on big hits turning it into a 3-4 minutes long summary.

    The second portion of the Round 2 Coverage video is here! I'm really happy that everyone liked the first! Hopefully this one can live up to the hype!

    Thanks guys for all the constructive criticism. I'm still learning, but I think I've ironed out a bit of the narration volume issues that plagued me the first time around. Enjoy!

    @Slimsy: I like the stand-in art when no video's available!

    Oops, you said I won the last match (starting at 2:00)!

    Maybe you want to edit this link into your top post as well?

    Edit: Sort of disappointing to see Tirean using three RMs.

    Holy cow, I can't believe I made that mistake... [holds head in shame]. I've added a little caption to the video to correct it. I guess that's just one of the side effects of working on that highlight video during extremely late nights!

    Great work again!
    And I think you found a perfect picture for me. I could hardly think of a better match for my in-game name!
