This is a cinematic and NOT a playable scenario. It is a humorous movie about 15 minutes long about a last scenario designer and his fight against ES (Ensemble Studios) to bring back scenario designing. You should enjoy this cinematic even if you know nothing about scenario designing! Features stunning eyecandy and cinematography, building mashing, humorous dialog, and more!
This cinematic was made to encourage scenario designing and in hope that ES will fix some of the bugs in the editor.

Laggy cinematic due to the high number of objects and fast camera movement in certain parts, at the fightin scene not all of the units moved either
The music didn't really fit the scenes, needs more dramatic music in the dramatic scenes and so forth
Loved the story and the "comic" lines lmao, loved this cinematic
Map Design: 5
Lots of eye candy, nicely made must have taken you a long time.
Loved the story as i said above, best cinematic i've ever seen
Best cinematic i've ever seen, very creative and i hope to see more

Even Though Its Not Playable Its An Aswome Cinematic!
The Camera Moves Are Smooth

Map Design: 5
Even Though im Giveing It A 5 Cus You Really Are Not Allowed TO See The Map I Took A Sneek Peek At It And Instantly Thought "Woah, Its Alot Smaller Than It Looks!"

I Really Wish you Make More Because I Suck At Makeing Cinematics >.
