@nickmlg Spam bots are just roaring into the video the moment it goes public with fake giftcard links. I know you guys can't do much about it but just figured I'd give you a heads up.

Thx... literally nothing I can do about it as I'm leaving right now -_- . We've suggested features to YT that would SIGNIFICANTLY limit the abilities of those assholes but so far no updates... hope that might happen soon.

 

In the meantime just report and hopefully people don't click...

Yah, I've reported at least 5 different ones. All with the name "Linus Tech Tips Official"

Outstanding job and great judges. Glad to see some Riley (hire Riley?).

 

But I must say that I enjoyed the system inside from the losing team more.

I was really impressed by both teams, I know I couldn't customize and paint with a finish as good as either. I did feel the judges were particularly harsh on this, I know execution was a criteria for judging but I felt they all missed the mark on being fair here. They just focused on constantly critiquing the tiniest bad paint marks that they missed so much detail in the concepts and creativity.

I hope this is the first and last time we see ijustine on LTT.  She clearly is a mac user and has no clue what she's talking about in terms of PC modding or PC in general. The mousepad comment is pretty ridiculous. Steve is the only one who actually examined everything up close.

How dare LTT reach out and try to incorporate other "tech-tubers". You're absolutely right! Everybody should just stay to their own dedicated space on the internet and never ever ever collaborate. 

 

Good job son.

I think the iJustone judging was kinda of missing the point but at the same time she adds the "average user" perspective; it's clear she sin't a PC gamer or enthusiast so isn't gonna geek out about the computer to much and provides the more realistic judging however she was slightly annoying to me but that tends to be my gribe with most Mac fanboys/fangirls

I finally got around to watching all 4, and I personally think Justine failed to see the art side of things on Linus and Luke's build.

 

That said, all 4 competitors should not quite their daytime jobs, they took 4 days (or so they claim) to do something that would take me 2-3 by myself... I understand creativity aspects but they were just too slow. Day 1 Design/Disassemble/Prime maybe even paint the big pieces possibly all. Days 2 paint everything work on the table assembly. Spray paints take a fraction of the time compared to normal painting techniques. Not cured but able to be handled.

I'm with Riley's opening opinion on what we should have seen in video 4... But how it turned out it felt like you did everything in one 8 hour sitting...

 

Also just curious about one thing, why did it take 3 months to transform 32+- hours of possible content down to 1.5 hours? (the amazon app on the phone showed delivery dates late sept-early oct)
