The percolating of the new Perkz
  • In the past, when Perkz shoved out mid lane, he did so after his support ganked mid lane, getting him ahead.
  • Ultimately, however, this was a unique idea for Perkz to create pressure in the mid lane using the element of surprise.
  • He still plays like he’s the star, he just isn’t.A gap in play has lead to heavy criticism of G2 Esports’ mid laner.
  • This doesn’t always work when the European meta has been predisposed toward mid lane ganks.
  • I believe it could have benefited from deeper wards, but these are often only obtainable if mid lane is winning, creating a Catch 22 situation.

Video: n0thing vs. Renegades
  • of course it depends on the action and the commentary itself, but the one you pasted isnt any good either - at least for the people who have played cs for many years, because they know when the action is good and deserves praise. they (we) dont need random shouting "he gets the 1st and the 2nd and the 3rd" to tell them that the frag is good :) so, my suggestion to hltvorg would be to get someone to analyze the round slightly more indepth than "wow amazing frag". sure live commentating is one thing but they could really take the time for a post-game analysis, msayin i see what youre trying to say, i still like what certain commentaries can add to a clip, but its definitely overused. watched most of your movies btw, ever thought of editing some csgo stuff or do you just dislike the game? yeah i know what you mean as well i guess, some commentaries (very rarely) make my hairs stand up, dno if its a phrase in english :D i am in fact getting into csgo moviemaking yeah, i have 2 projects ready to start (szpero the polish player, and saveeey, a slovenian guy). but before i start im gonna wait for paniqs csgo moviemaking tutorial in 7 parts, i just know hes gonna give some good info on how to record properly (gotvs are FUCKED) tried editing some stuff earlier this year but i sort of lost interest because its not worth the effort, was going to create a huge fragmovie about the best of csgo in 2016, but its on hold now. i feel like actual good edits dont really get any recognition anymore nowadays anyway. this was actually my first real edit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjGq_Zcejxk csgo moviemaking generally is a pain in the ass, the demoUI is full of bugs and there are barely any POV demos around, its all gotv nowadays.tried editing some stuff earlier this year but i sort of lost interest because its not worth the effort, was going to create a huge fragmovie about the best of csgo in 2016, but its on hold now. i feel like actual good edits dont really get any recognition anymore nowadays anyway.this was actually my first real edit: if that was my first real edit id be proud tbh. i wanna see more csgo movies like that, tho yours is clearly not finished / polished. 2bad :) for now im making short 15sec videos to learn to record and to find the settings i like, theyre not public ofc... will see yeah the amount of recognition doesnt have that much to do with the editing quality nowadays, its way more about the marketing ability (including knowing the right people), using popular music, choosing the right player (the one thats relevant at the moment youre releasing the movie), etc blah blah. i dont even concern about the views for all these reasons :) ive subscribed to your channel just now and expect to see some new csgo clips some time xD here are some clips of the 2016 movie i was going to make: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3-_7nlnYWk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3ybqbnLTGw i still have the vegas projects, but idk if im going to finish that, would be lots of work i dont know, my main goal was to get a decent ammount of subscribers and make some money off of it, but i feel like theres no room for new editors on youtube anymore, guess i should have started earlier haha.here are some clips of the 2016 movie i was going to make:i still have the vegas projects, but idk if im going to finish that, would be lots of work
