I don't know if it's something about the mercurial impishness Wowcrendor lends to his videos, or if it's the playful and obvious love he has for the game. But, whatever that intangible quality might be, Wowcrendor's How to win at PvP is a soothing balm for an Alliance member who just can't figure out why they keep fighting on the road.

I liked the video, but it probably ran a little long overall. It could be split out into two different videos. One could have been a "common archetypes you meet in your BG raid" and the other would be "a guide to the different battlegrounds." I don't know. I had fun with each individual piece of the video, so I wouldn't advocate cutting anything out. But a satire that runs at 7 minutes will probably lose audience members by the end.

At the end of the day, I'm a fan of Wowcrendor, and am happy to see him develop this kind of style. It might be time to step up the pace a tad, however, as I think he has the talent to do a lot more.
