No, see, the criticism isn't so much what you did--the shit's pretty baller--just the narration. Making mistakes in a PvP video is pretty awesome. Not many people that do videos do that, because they're full of themselves and either do a "Look how great I am" narration, or some shit techno track. My point is that for educational purposes--if that's what you're going for--you should really make an effort to point out your mistakes and talk about them at length.
The thing that I brought up with on the Tengu, for instance, a newbro's not going to notice that. It would be worth talking about visual effects (armor, shield, SeBo, ECCM, MJD, and so on) and what they tell you about a guy's fit. Not just about what they're fitting, whether their tank is active or passive, active or passive hardeners, etc, but also just keeping a count of their midslots:
"That dude's hull has four midslots, he has a point on me, I see an active shield hardener effect, he's moving too fast to not have a prop mod. Since his tank appears to have some buffer to it, I can be nearly 100% certain that he doesn't have a scram, web, or cap booster."
But really, it's quite good. Especially
that shit with the dessies. It was a really simple engagement that you used to show off a lot of strategies. Setting up the on-the-fly cloaky bubble camp, making some educated guesses about what they were going to do, getting a quick kill, then taking that kill and using it as a set-up to score another, even better kill.
And not many people making videos would do that, because it's "just" a T1 destroyer and a Sabre killed by a superior ship.

You might not realize it Tyrant, depending on how much you lurk on the forums, but this comment was enough to make me want to watch the videos.
I think I'm gonna keep writing hype posts to advertise this shit. Unless Episode Three turns out to be subtitled "Incorporating Dubstep Into Solo PvP".
