    Just wondering. On the screenshots in your description Arthas has the Lich King's helmet on. What's up with that? If that is in the cinematic it kinda ruins the whole fight, since it's the fight over the Lich King and Arthas dosen't have it on when they fight.

    Anyways will download it now and see if I like it. :)

    Edit: I really enjoyed the cinematic. Very creative, though... A little more action wouldn't have hurt ;)
    Anywho, It was a good cinematic and I will give it a 4½/5 cause of the somewhat little action. :p

    Your post was off-topic and I always ensure at least 90% of my message was right at the point. If you want to quote my post just to find my fault, I suggest you not to post anything at all.

    Well, you're right about my post being off-topic.
    To get to the point, I must say I enjoyed watching the cinematic. I liked the trigger-based effects (spells), like jumps and slides, etc.

    The terrain didn't really bug me, it seemed fine. The only faulty thing I've seen is the flashbacks: I just can't connect some of them to the present fight. But that's, at least in my eyes, not a big issue.

    PS: All of the above are from a laic-observer's perspective.

    Oh, I forgot 1 Thing about your Cinematick, goes to the Terrain part.

    When you use Abyss, You should move it to the first place on tilesets.

    Gonna watch it and then I'll rate it too (maybe even +rep)

    Edit: Hmh, nice cinematic!
    But the teleport of Arthas was bit lame, he don't really posses that ability.
    And there were too many flash(backs), kinda annoying. And where was the battle music?

    Anyway, Good sounds, Nice terrain.
    Animations were good/average.

    I give it a 4/5!, Good Job!

    If you refer to me, I would give you 3 reasons.

    1) My comments are direct to the points, anybody who got brain would definitely agree about it.
    2) I do think before I write, I would never write a long review without it being precise.
    3) If you want to give low rating, give it with reason. Unplanned actions are consider a reason to give low rating? That is more like downrating.

    I've took my time to watch it.
    Somehow I'm missing something, I'm not sure what.
    The effects where 'too simple' for my opinion, I saw better one yet it doesn't mean that this cinematic was fully bad. Pretty good at certain parts.
    Ah well.
    My rating follows most of the rest, 3/5.

    This is a little unpolished, don't you think?

    And you're taking the comments way too personally Septimus. Floating doodads is pretty bad.

    This is my opinion, DO NOT REPLY OR QUOTE MY MESSAGE, I can see efforts in camera but this cinematic is NOT epic at ALL. Yes flash backs, no problem, but what in the world?; Arthas and Illidan are trying to kick each other's asses and Arthas ended up winning becuase of Kelthuzad's frost nova? Cheap - not epic - bad twist of story

    To improve:
    -Make their battle last longer with more actions
    (not just stand there and fires come out of nowhere)
    -Remove the unessesary flashes (not flash backs)
    -Have them both talk to each other angrily before they crushes in
    -Remove the god damned Kelthuzad, he doesnt belong in it.
    -Make good story twists (unpredictable moves and events)

    My rating: Overall 2/5

    I am only giving a 2 for the camera, good use of reduce animation speed, and reasonable flash backs, out of every part from this cinematic because those are the only thing that deserves rating, the other parts are bad I wont even bother with a 1/5 rating. So overall -2/5- (After all the suggestions I make with my other friends who also watched this we decided a 1.5/5 rating but I dont want to be too mean because i can see A LOT of effort you put into this) Many more spots to improve, good luck.

    No, not at all, no +rep for this comment

    I already view it and even ask some opinion from other terrainer, there is no floating doodads. Even raid1000 does not edit the forest terrain simply because there is no floating doodad at all.

    KelThuzad frost nova are rather strong as well. If you view Arthas vs Illdan at undead campaign. Even Illdan get hurt by Arthas swords, what's more to said about the frost nova especially when it was a spells.

    My cinematic battle are design to follow the music theme. The music last about 3 minutes 19 seconds, so what do you expect from it.

    Also, battle that are too long would make audience snore. I do not want a battle that last too long.

    The flash are crucial to indicate what is happening or else there would be a lot of question regarding about it.

    Honestly enough, not every battle start with crappy talk. Who want to watch a battle where there is plenty of crappy talk before they fight?

    Having a crappy talk before fight are like childish and more to kiddie behavior.

    KelThuzad does belong in it, he was crucial in helping Arthas most of the time. Ever play blizzard campaign?

    Those unique battle movement could only been done at JASS, this was done at GUI. Thus, the ability to do so was strictly limited. With limited animation at the models as well, it make the job even harder.

    After all, those model isn't like black_stan model where you have several necessary animation effect for it.

    Seems like this rating was partially invalid as well. You vote it based on your taste rather than the work, you did not even mention what's wrong with it and straight away give 2/5.

    I might seems to take it personally, that was because those user who give 1/5 and 2/5 gives a rather useless comment without mentioning what is wrong.

    Those user who vote it 3/5 such as Amigurumi, bounty hunter2, and HFR could give at least half a dozen reason of why it deserve 3/5 and where is the flaw of the map is.

    But what about those who rate it 2/5 and 1/5? Here is their comment.

    Tell me which part of their review was constructive and pointing the flaw of the map? NONE.
    The only thing they give was just a suggestion, which are partially not suitable to be even implement to the map at all.

    If user who vote it 3/5 can give plenty of reason why it deserve 3/5. How come those who give 2/5 and 1/5 cannot give the right reason for it?

    The answer are simple, they are trying to downrate the map. I already seen plenty of people like this. Please write a constructive review if you want to rate, this is hardly consider as review.

    I got the right to reply.

    Narutards :p

    And Kel'Thuzad is just Arthas mentor. This means that he's always with him, either by phisically or by mental contact.

    Pretty much epileptic. It has some interesting moves though. It also makes Arthas an unexpected coward.
