What a shame EA! Fuck off, i go to steam :-)
Since you are open to discussion and critics i would suggest you to use less aggressive language when you are on the internet. I would try something like, "Hey Cem, this is great material and thanks for the article. As far as i know from 80lvl Facebook group you can improve the performance or you may consider dropping the price. Keep up the good job." It doesn't have to be the same words but this kind of attitude would lead to a softer conversation because your intention will be clear.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Is there any link or video for the cheaper solutions that you mentioned before? Please share them. I haven't seen any cheaper, faster, HD, loopable and adjustable "normal map" flipbook video that you said in your first post. I would be happy to compare the results in realism.
Battle of the Bastards was one one of the best episodes of HBO’s Game Of Thrones. It’s the only episode that got 10/10 at IMDB. Thousands of soldiers battled to define the ruler of Winterfell and that was amazing! We don’t want to spoil anything, but you can’t create a battle without talented VFX team. HBO’s decision was to hire Australian VFX studio Iloura for blending close-ups, actual crowd shots and a ton of CGI. Take a look at Iloura’s behind-the-scenes video on creating the ninth episode.
Battle of the Bastards is shocking in its audacity. More shocking still that we pulled it off and so much credit for that goes to Iloura. We are up close and personal in this battle with CG horses and collisions right in front of the lens and we constantly needed to review Iloura’s shots side by side with the photography because it was hard to remember and even harder to see the difference between what was shot and what was added. Amazing.
