[VIDEO] Deadliest Approach

DEADLIEST APPROACH

EVE burned me out, and it's been way too long since I put out a video.
I have solo-killed more ships in the last 2 months (not including this March) than I have in the last couple years combined (~360).
It's time I put some of that excessive pvp to good use and give you folks something to watch Smile

This video is dedicated to the brawlers.
I can fly every sub-cap ship, but I tend to stick with Gallente and my trusty approach button.

As usual, this is solo pvp. No links, no scouts, & no alts. There may be a fight or two with someone else, but otherwise it's all me.
This is not a tutorial video. I make these videos for entertainment purposes, unless stated otherwise.
If you've seen any of my recent videos and they weren't your bag, then take a guess at what you should expect.

Yadda yadda yadda

Felt like it had been too long since a Prometheus Exenthal video, and then this showed up in my Youtube stream. Thanks man, epic video.

Well, that was a whole lot of "approach, overload everything, pray for win" pvp.

Nice that you can take it as a joke m8. No matter how much I have shitted on your piloting ability I know that you are one of the best video editors and got a great taste of music at least. And for the guys you are fighting... Have people forgotten what a brutix can do and go brawl it in a Gila.

Enjoyed the Algos v 2 Confessors fight the most. Very close finish.

great vid +1, would like to know what you use to render your vids and at what settings. Your vids always look nice and crisp.

I record everything in 1080p @ 60fps (with Fraps), and it never leaves that format.
Everything is edited w/ Sony Vegas, then exported using Lagariths codec (still 1080p @ 60fps).
Audio is separate, and combined with the video in the final stage, where I combine the finished AVI & WAV files using Staxrip*.

That gives me the MKV file which I upload wherever.

I've been doing this since... Frigank 3 I think?

*You can use another program like MeGUI or Handbrake for this step.

Great vid though Prom. Incredible editing as usual and entertaining fights.

I normally like your vids but this is now just vanilla and slightly boring to be honest.
Editing is really good but there is no difference from this and any other pvp vid really and there are better vids of some of the ships and piloting of them.
You were the best small ship pilot for a good while but alot of people have surpassed your abilities and it's showing.
Still enjoy your chest beating of small ship pvp but it's not the be all and end all I'm afraid.

Credit to you for putting yourself out there for good fights and to be judged by video but the bar is now higher and you have went under it, if this was a year or two ago then it would still be top notch but sadyl it's not.

Good luck in future vids.

Not to be a ****, but can y link me to *better* small ship solo pvp video?
I watch this forum, and my findings are that they're all Slicer videos or not actually solo, so I'd like an example.

If you want a zoomed-out video of me splitting groups for 40 minute before getting a handful of kills, I can do that too.
Although I can't promise it being very entertaining.

Enjoying the footage, production is top-notch, and the fitting advice on FHC is very accessible (isk-wise) for novice players to get in on brawling. I suspect there's a lot of work "setting up" a fight before committing, especially with larger gangs in local.

It does take some doing, but it doesn't make for good footage P

So. Good.
Part of why i like Proms **** so much is because i can relate to fights shown (MANMODE brawling w/o links).
Even with an alt in a boosting t3 readily available i just cant stand dualboxing when all i want to do is to casually soloroam around in a cheap-ish ship and hopefully get some dope fights.

And editing is excellent.
