Default A Video Introduction to RA

Hello Guru forum. I started this project ages ago and two days ago I decided to finish it. At first I wanted it to be a bit more informational and in-debt, but about halfway through I realized that was impossible to do in a 10 minute video, and so this "artsy" and "funny-ish" video became the result. I hope some of you can enjoy it for what it is, regardless!

Thanks, I'm really glad you like it.

Definitely, I'll consider making more of these, but they are a bit time consuming to say the least so only if there's an audience for it

very nice. you should do others for things like qstepping, faking etc. perhaps one for each profession explaining things they should know. too many times i've seen warriors copy pasta a build and mash buttons and frenzy to death or complain about kd's not working because they aren't correctly timing it.

I've been wanting to make a "technical" video on microing: when to bull's strike, how to avoid it, how to fake and etc, and it seems like people would be interested in that so.. I might just get on with that!

I would, but the QQ forums are scary (and I think they know most of what I do, anyway)

I know what you mean. Unfortunately, I don't know any voice actors and I can't voice act myself. I wanted the kind of voice from old 50's commercials and I found this text-reader online which, after some tweaking, sounded decent (but there are some strange pronunciations at times and mastering the audio level was a pain)

I think the voice and the music were my favourite parts. Really good job, I find myself getting distracted about halfway through most GW videos, but yours kept me entertained right to the end

You don't deserve to the be the spokesperson for this arena, you obviously have no respect for the format or the game in general if the first things you "teach" people are how to resign, abandon the match and synch, and that RA is all about "gladiator". Do you remember what it's like to have fun?

You ARE the bad example of RA, enough said. And stop screwing in people syncs.


and you wouldnt know what "artsy" is if it slaped you in the face, with the pathetic video editing skills. (or a chair, whichever is closer.)

Why would you disguise as a "guide" a video merely showing you landing bulls for like 4mins?

And the advice given is not too good if you ask me.. Truth is, from what I can see in your video(s), you're not that good, so I think people syncing ra would appreciate it if you didn't screw in their sync.

My 2 cents

This is all that needs to be said.
