Understanding the title seems to be the key to understanding what the hell is going on in the movie itself. (Which, by the way, you have a typo on. It's a 12, not a 21)1.12.1 was the patch which changed the costs of riding skill and mounts, which shows why the tier 2 pally spends all his time riding around on that charger of his. 4.0.3 was obviously when the world changes came about for cataclysm.Seems Baron is hinting at the direction he sees WoW taking by the time the year 2019 rolls around. The video itself definitely makes one think about how things change in the game and what changes the future may bring...

Hell, it also stands as an interesting commentary on the way the past is lost and forgotten as we forge ahead towards the future in real life.I like this video more than I thought I would because it's clear enough to indicate that the artist had some intended meaning, but it's open to interpretation by the viewer. Often that type of open-ended narrative can feel like the artist just threw a bunch of random crap together and called it "open to interpretation" but I don't get that sense on this one.

Would you say, then, that the "deletion" scene was a character re-customization from male to female?

I'd rather say that the paladin is an old friend/lover of the woman. You see them on a weddingpicture about halfway through the movie. That could point to players leaving the game and leaving other people behind.I love the whole vibe of this video :) And ofcourse the effects are something only Baron Soosdon can do.

i totally agree with you cutaia. After reading in the description that it was confusing as hell, i didn't have high hopes. But halfway through it became evident that soosdon was making a comment about the cataclysm and how the game has changed. I really liked it.and here's to hoping soosdon keeps the machinima coming, haven't heard much from him in a while, but haven't read his blog in longer so, who knows!
