Putting this vid together started with the first of the two Widows we see, here (Ninja_Trollzor69). It was a crazy-awesome, fun game (the PotG where I have the flag ended up getting us a point), and they were super-nice when I sent them a GG afterwards. So I was like okay, that's a vid, and put together the first half of the vid fairly quickly. For weeks, this vid ended with a montage of other, unrelated PotGs, but I wasn't happy with it, and decided I wanted to be just a vid of duels, and kept on looking for footage - and ended up finding my matches against AllAimNoName - a very serious and professional Widow who has no time for my bullshit.
Where Ninja_Trollzor distinguished themselves by obliterating my team in the first teamfight, AllAimNoName established very quickly that they were very good at killing me, personally, and I thought their initial domination of me was a nice counterpoint to the way I ran circles around Ninja_Trollzor. For the record, my team won the match against Ninja_Trollzor, and of the three matches against AllAimNoName, we went 2 and 1. There was a great one where, after I take out their shield gen (which is in the vid) and my team moves in, I snuck up behind AllAimNoName, gently brushed the last 20% of their life bar off, picked up the flag, killed their Lucio and strolled alllll the way back to my base to score.
It was awesome.
Oh, I guess I should post the vid. I'm really happy with how it turned out! I've wanted to use this song since I first heard it, and Widow duels seemed like the ideal subject.
...but it seems the public disagrees. I posted this to the Penny Arcade forums on like, Thursday, I think, and didn't get a single heart off it >.< oh well. I love it. And so does Ninja_Trollzor69, so there's at least two people out there with excellent taste.
I hit the subscribe button - it seemed polite, and that's what the "thanks" is about. Here's Ninja_Trollzor69's YouTube channel. Their last posted video is gameplay of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash and I'm like "man, what're the odds?"
So that interaction couldn't have gone better, in my opinion. I wonder why no one else liked it?
I wish someone would tell me why they feel it sucks? Is the footage just boring? Is the song offensive, in today's political climate? No one's talking - but I make these vids for me, and I'm still a fan.
