You really reeled me in, and then you ruined it at the end.

I really liked where this vid was going, but then the ending just kinda ruined the oppurtunity for a great climax, in a way I felt kinda betrayed

Good animation, great use of cosmetic items and props, and I really liked the flight of the dove.

But it lacked story, and the joke at the end was rather weak after the dramatic set-up. It cut away from Scout back to the Engineer and Medic... then ended right when I expected something more to happen. I'm not even sure if the card that Scout gave Spy was actually sent by BLU Medic and Engineer, or if it was something the Scout drew (but then that would pose the question, when would he have had time to do it?).

Upvoted because it's just a Short and it's hard to set up a complete story in 1 min.
