Hey Linus, just want to throw my 2 cents in, not going to hate on you and i honestly don't think your a sellout at all in fact i have the up most respect for you and the guys at your company. you guys are literally the reason i am at university studying interactive digital media. i've watched your channel for years and been a bit of a lurker through all of the stages from NCIX to now. i have learned a crap ton of info off you and at one of the lowest points in my life (2 yrs ago) you kinda saved my life as lame as it sounds you got me to get up in the morning to see what i could learn and eventually i turned my life around and got into uni and also started my own pc building and content creating company to get me through uni. BUT yea there's a but. i have noticed in the last year mabye year and a half the channel itself has felt cold and a little disjointed the quality in the videos and scripting has been falling a lot to the points it's lost almost all humility and feels like a tv channel, you guys don't seem to want to connect to your audience as much or if you do maybe it gets lost in over scripting? watching MKBHD and unbox therapy they seem to connect better and have a bit more humility to there videos compared to you, and i do mean you directly. luke i think seems i don't know more relaxed maybe? in your video's you can definitely tell when your tired stressed etc. relax, you made it. chill out. your company is awesome. and i know you are only human, aren't we all? but i honestly think you have been looking at the numbers to much lately and have lost a little way with your audience. some comments you have personally made on facebook and twitter to do with views and the cost and worth of some videos may not have been the best comments to have made and the responses your received in on those comments speak for themselves... and lastly i am probably in no position to make this comment but the quality of the editing has taking a very big dive lately (i mean even before the move) being a editor and using premiere pro and after effects on a daily basis, i can't help to notice amateur mistakes that should not be made especially in a company with more than 2 experienced editors. when you have unbox therapy and MKBHD ( a solo content creator) spitting out videos that honestly put yours to shame in an editing point of view and look a great more professional its kind of depressing to see as it wasn't always this way. as iv said i don't have a problem with you at all and i respect you and trust you and your content mabye... 90% of the time lol. but i do think honestly that you may need to take a step back and reevaluate your scripting, get a bit more humility back so it seems less that we are watching a tv tech channel and more watching Linus media group, mabye make better content choices... (more educational shit less this plays games well buy it or this sucks don't buy it and please for the love of god quality control your content... jesus... (im looking at you green screen). speed vs quality... don't let speed win or at least get a balance. channel super fun though. that shit is dope. Burkel is amazing at those edits. sorry about grammar and if it doesn't read well but its nearly 2am and im tired as shit.
TLDR ; Love your shit linus but chill the fk out. breathe... Quality Control.
