It has some problems ,but the story just makes me forget about them ,it's probably my favourite entry. Great job.

Despite the little mistakes, this was actually really good. The story was easy to follow and the pacing was excellent. Overall, great job!

If this were to go through one more render cycle/coat of digital polish, this would be a real contender for best overall. Heck, if the next year is spent working on polishing everything, the reupload of this would do well.

I liked it, good story and all, but the animation needs work. It felt too stiff and janky, but nice job with the intro.

Best thing I've seen so far! Honestly the intro animations could be in a category all on its own, you really can feel the character's personalities if that makes sense, loved this!!

If you ask me, I thought the timestamps were a part of the video, kind of added to the feel. Great work!

Is it sad and pathetic I miss autobalance?

Great video, the whole team seems very talented but I didn't feel like this animation is saxy worthy. I'd love to see more from you next year.

Things that annoyed me:
-the guy wins the game for his team, then gets autobalanced is a joke that milions of animations already did
-the animation was clunky at times
-the story is predictable from the start- you have a pro who teaches noobs who then beat up the enemy team

Again, I liked the animation but I just didn't feel like it was Saxxy worthy
Aw, you could have added cinematic black bars to hide the text. Even then, it's still pretty good!
