1v1 Match of the Month - January [Contest]

Post by SoScared »

Hey folks!

I've wanted to pick up regular casting again so i decided to focus on a monthly schedule. I'll be scouting the replay forums but if you know of some good games, please do not hesitate to post them here or on a gameplays.org forum thread: http://www.gamereplays.org/community/in ... try9875801.

I'll be making casts in style with the earliest casts I did a few years ago, with timed closeups, quick change of perspectives and whatnot. So if you get your replay casted as 'match of the month', I'll see if I can't make something special out of it;)

If time allows for it I'll put the submitted replays up for a community vote.
  • 1v1's only
  • All mods (including customs!) allowed.
  • No longer than 30 min.
  • Normal or Faster speed
First up is January. Every video will be available on my youtube channel at the beginning of the next month.

glhf!

***

Next up, February MotM.

Awesome.

What's the play if people submit replays to different casters, say, yourself and FiveAces? :P

I'm sure you've already seen this link as you helped me with the map issue but I'll post it up here again as well, and this one is only 17 minutes ;)

I think it's ok if you post them to both FiveAces and here. If it's the best replay but FiveAces already cast it I'll probably just find another. No biggie:)

Well I pretty much spoiled it on the stream but I took an executive decision and picked this replay for January's MotM (sorry mo). Raymundo (UKR) vs Murto the Ray (RUS) in a royal fight on map Sidestep. It's already been exposed in the stream but the youtube vod is gonna be a bit different, and possibly a nice promo for OpenRA.

Here's the highlighted stream if you don't want to wait for the vod.

*Because I decided January's MotM prematurely we'll make sure mo's replay gets casted as well. If not by FiveAces then by myself;)

Don't worry, Mo's match is already casted and scheduled for release on Wednesday!
Ray v Ray was pretty intense, the yak crash around minute 14 actually won Ray the game (Spoiler: Ray wins 8)

Your commentary is just so on point!

"Tesla tank drive-by".

I love it!


(Ah yes, I made my first post here before I got your confirmation FiveAces, thanks :) )

Let me submit this 1vs1 on Sidestep (me vs. Hi).

Summary: low tier unit spam results in total carnage all over the map, making the map look like Northern France post WWI.

Probably a challenge to cast, because often battles happen on multiple fronts at once.

This is a great match. Decided to cast this regurlarly if you don't mind :) I can have it up tonight on the tubes. I already started working on the Raymundo/Murto match video for the MotM.

Would you upload it to gamereplays.org as well?

*I took the liberty to do both today:)

Awesome! I've already see this match, but due to the very nice editing it was AGAIN exciting to watch.

Thanks for the praise! It's been commented that it's more enjoyable watching a cast where the caster hasn't seen the match before. It's also not as fun commenting a match that you know, no matter how great a match is.

I had an idea, perhaps appeal to various popular and semi-popular esport casters - offering the vod for free. They'd be getting the ad-revenue from literally free content and minimal amount of work. If the vod quality is good enough, some could take the offer and I could focus solely on the editing part. I prefer editing over commentary anyways.

You should do a separate one for TD as well!

May I quote from SoScared's front post:
"All mods (including customs!) allowed. "

Therefore I would say it is only a matter of time when the MotM will turn out to be a TD or D2k one :D
