Halo 2 Forum Montage Contest 2

Second Montage Contest, only thing close to an announcement/FAQ type thread still to be found
Winner: Vrbas - Montage 3

Quotes from Z in final votings.

TheHaloGod - It's Different! Great gameplay, great quality, decent editing, great original music (humor factor)!

VrBas - 1st of its kind! This was the first H2F montage to have passed the HBO's MSRRP. First of its kind to start the dramatic music trend and first of its kind to start the amazing editing trend, and possibly the montage with best video resolution!

Titan VIII - Skill, skill, skill! Lots of skilled gameplay with unique touch to the editing. Quality is great and music is heart pounding that fits perfect with the editing and gameplay!

Aftermath. (Irony)

TheHaloGod's montage, Untouchable turned out to live up to its name and THG showed everyone why he deserved the name he chose. Untouchable is without a doubt the most viewed Halo montage of all time today and many old school members of the Halo community still view him as one of the pioneers to kickstart the Montage culture.

TitanVIIII didn't get as far TheHaloGod did, but if you ask the people who were around back then, they'll tell you that he had amazing gameplay for that age.

VrBas peaked during this contest, he lost most of his clips because of computer viruses and didn't bother re-editing his fourth. His name fell out of the scene shortly after.
