Some hooks were really awesome, still some weren't impressive at all and can be seen on pub daily :-).

+ That SS was shite, damned!

lol I'd contend both those points :P

The SS parts were sped up a lot and the hooks were out of context so I think it's hard to actually be able to tell from those clips what his skill level is. Sure he got owned but everyone gets owned occasionally. I could tell personally from playing vs. him that he was definitely above average in game awareness and moving around, and you'll notice every hook I land is while he's moving or attempting to last hit. He's no Chu but I think discrediting him based off the performance in the vid would be incorrect.

I think besides the intro and outro hooks all the rest were pretty much on par, so I'm curious which ones you felt unimpressive?

Thanks for the response btw! I posted on the forums so I could get opinions like yours since constructive critisism is tough to come by in the youtube comments lol (it's usually dude gj or wow ur bad). I was starting to think this forum might be dead or something and it was stupid to post here,  but I'm glad to see it's not.

e.g. 0:51 was not so impressive, because of just dumb playing on the enemy part.

But blind hooking that FA, that really got my attention :-)
I've surely watched that scene 3 - 4 times

As pub standards go, the SS was definitely a cut above the rest in terms of competency mid. That's specifically why I chose the clip - there were many other games where I did well mid, but getting hooks on stand still targets is not tough. Vs. this SS I was forced to use blind hooks and wait for him to attempt a last hit - this strategy works against the best of opponents.

Sure it looks bad for him because it's sped up, all kills out of context, and he got savagely owned, but you definitely can't judge his skill from that.

it doesn't look too sped up, that's why maybe! ;-)

haha, yeah the SS clips are the most sped up because it was too long at normal game speed, its like 250%-300% normal speed.

Wow, if these kind of videos are sick then I should make my own   :-o

Although this video was pretty nice, mostly not because of the kills, but cause of the pro editing.


P.S. Trig, he saw him move up the ramp at the last second, it's not that amazing :)

It wasn't anything impressive to me. I think the best HoN video I'd ever seen was the one I made where 3 units attacked our devourer and I came running half way from the base, killed all 3 and devourer managed to deny himself, LOL. Was so epic. The other nice one I'd seen was when Predator jumped at valk and she jumped away at the same time, so it doubled his jump distance. LOL. Mad crazy.
