It only just occurred to me how prophetic that video was... everyone has to play with stitches, because he's a required top 3 pick in every league match.

Anyway, I'm Krazy#1532 if anyone actually wants to play a match some time.

Well now Blizzard has given most the people in the beta codes for other people.

Looks like I've had beta access for quite a while. Do I even want to use the bandwidth on it?

Funny enough I have yet to receive giveaway codes.

Game release date on June 2nd.

Open beta in the middle of May.

And of course a bunch of children whining and crying about it.

Tell me if I wasted my time making this (I did it just because I could):

I watched it. I was a little confused at first because it seemed like a yoloq brawl for most of it, except surrounding some central objective. You were ridiculously tanky even early on (that guy was just shooting you in lane and you were taking no damage at all lol).

A few suggestions for encoding itself. If you're using Sony Vegas, make sure to turn off resampling. Select all the video tracks and right click -> switches -> disable resampling. Youtube kind of destroys encode quality, but resampling is even worse. Additionally, turn down the game volume a bit when recording. The audio is significantly distorted from being directly recorded at a high volume. This is kind of an annoyance when you play at that volume and have to change it for recording, but it will make the end result sound cleaner.

I don't have Sony Vegas.

Most of the time I actually don't record sound that loud (although yes I do play with it that loud), I was just being lazy. I didn't alter the sound at all.

Part of it really is I'm making test runs with OBS (local recording, not streaming) and the recording quality is somewhat questionable depending what I'm using it on.

Ah, so you were using OBS. Yeah, the settings for OBS can be really touchy. For local recordings, you can safely set the bitrate pretty high and, depending on the hardware you are using, you can also set the encode profile and CPU presets to something slower/higher quality. Your video is quite watchable, but I did feel like it could be a little bit sharper. You didn't have any macroblocking or such going on, so that's good.

Being lazy is always a reasonable excuse, though.

World of Warcraft was merely a setback. Kael'thas Sunstrider.

I'm happy to see Kael'thas in the game, but I think that was one of the least interesting Meet the Hero videos they've had yet. It's just BLOOD. VENGEANCE. RECKONING.
