I enjoyed watching this, and I appreciate the amount of work put into it, however...

I found the graphics in the vid to look much much uglier than the ones in the actual game. Too much swirly, massive red flames and junk. CCP did a very smart thing when they made the explosions blue - they look clean, and they make battle "cold". This vid did neither, and ended up looking incredibly messy and unsightful.

Also, the music was too damn loud. You can't play super loud music, then turn down the volume for 5 seconds when someone says something very quietly, and then turn it right back up again.

And for god's sake, next time you use alternate graphics, make sure they aren't brutally pixilated. There's nothing more jarring than seeing nice and smooth on one side and a bunch of colored blocks on the other.

tl;dr: This vid is halfway done. Was released before it was ready. Needs to be cleaned up bigtime. Points for effort though.

EDIT: I don't mean to gripe, but in real life the massive (minmatar?) fleet would have crushed the lone carrier and battleships rather quickly. Not to mention that they would have killed the jump freightors first. And the fact that you can't use bubbles in lowsec... I only wish that the maker of this vid had paid attention to detail... But now it's too late I guess.

EDIT2: And not to mention that they would have needed a titan to bridge all those battleships. On both sides. I mean, you could say that this are just minor details, but then what was the point of going to all that trouble and making the vid in the first place? People like me were bound to get caught up on all the details.

EDIT3: Actually, now that I'm watching it again... I heard the interceptor pilot saying "let's get the colonists out of here" in her little voice, and all I could think was NOOOBS died lol!

EDIT4: Interdictors don't need to sit on top of a target to bubble. So blowing it up was pointless. This is made even more apparent by the fact that the bubble isn't even centered on the dictor in the vid. And I'm sure everyone noticed this, but those weren't rifters.

EDIT5: Ugh. How did you manage to make your cyno and jump effects even more ugly than they are in game? I mean, honestly. Also, I may be wrong, but I don't think those naglfars were in siege mode. And the rokhs were charging with the ravens? Were they carrying blasters? What kind of weird fleet is this?

EDIT6: In a similar vein, I would have preferred to see a bunch of minmatar fighters come out... you could have done hilarious and wonderful things if you just tweaked the pilots inside and made them move a little.

EDIT7: Lol those interceptor pilots must be crazy, charging straight at the enemy. No transversal whatsoever. Should have been picked off in seconds, assuming the ships were all firing randomly, which seems to have been the case.

Yeah I thought that was weird too... The Caldari ships, who generally have the best range with their missiles, had to fly toward the Min Fleet? I know Min ships would get good range with the Arties, but no more than what the Caldari ships would get with Rails and missiles.

I really enjoyed this, but the attention to detail is lacking. The graphics aren't spectacular either... like the previous poster pointed out, they're much better in game and I've seen better in other player made movies. And it WAS hard to hear/understand what the characters were saying.

All that being said, I still enjoyed it. Think of this as constructive criticism. I'm looking forward to seeing future efforts by the creators!

Yes, I want to make it clear that the maker of this vid has my FULL support. This movie/project has great potential, but sadly this vid feels very much half-baked.

I loved the ending though. *BREAKING NEWS*... BOOM!

EDIT: I just can't resist... The interceptor pilot deliberately made a firetail crash into one of the freightors she was trying to protect? Lol wut?

Those Scorp skins are what the new Scorps look like...the red and black is the Widow.

As in, the official skins. Sexy, no?

Also, since some people here believe Eve videos are SRS BIZNES, let me reiterate a point already made by others: This video is purely for entertainment, and liberties will be taken to ensure an entertaining final product. This isn't Boring Eve Combat: The Video, this is two fleets slugging it out.

And really, isn't that more exciting? I believe it is.

But they weren't slugging it out. They were shooting entirely at random. The pilots were dummies. I was rooting for the "good" side to die. Isn't that a bad thing?

Two fleets were exchanging fire, things were exploding. I believe that would qualify as 'slugging it out'. OR it could be like real Eve combat, where everyone fires on one target while all his allies remote rep him over and over, ad nauseum. I think the former is more exciting.

I take your point, but... like 90% of the shots were missing. How do you miss a carrier and two freighters that aren't even moving? They weren't slugging it out, they were falling under the trope of More Dakka. Advanced technology be damned, these turrets will NOT hit!

Also, the commander who ordered those freighters to jump into an unknown situation with 500,000 people aboard is surely too dumb to live.

Axe, its fiction mate, its a piece of fiction Kale wrote based on the eve universe, the game mechanics do not apply, if they did then that carrier would not have blown up after a couple of strafing runs from bombers. Shots missed because its fiction and it is just based on the eve universe, the only things to come from eve were the models. gripes like shots not hitting or the bubble in lowsec or the fact that a Titan or bridges would be needed to jump the battleships is irrelevant.

There are countless videos out there where there is in-game footage and battles obey the rules of game mechanics but this vid does not claim to be one of them.

In summary: Artistic Licence YARRRR!!
