As a huge fan of this particular series, this was kinda underwhelming.  His acting is really cheesy to the point where I wondered if it was sarcastic, the moment with Firebrand was particularly bad. He was pretty creepy in every other appearance, but he felt like an extra on a lame sitcom here.  On another note, loved the reference to the clipping from a few days ago; money WAS a big thing holding him back.  Looking forward to the next update.

Hey there! Seems like your new to the forums! Welcome! I would suggest you make a thread on the SN Community area to introduce yourself so you can become a better part of the community! I agree that Adam seem's to have a lack for acting and that

Loved this video. I think the acting was well done, and that long pause before showing the money was awesome. TT continues to impress with each video.

I agree that the acting seemed very forced and unnatural. I do think Adam is a good actor, but one of the main things IMO holding Tribe Twelve back is the fact that most entries only feature Noah and no one else. Great acting comes from interaction - only the best actors in the world can do lengthy monologues and make it work, and even those usually come in films full of dialogue and interaction. This is one of the reasons why I am exited for the TT EMH crossover, as I also think some of Adams best acting was in his previous crossover with DH.

I agree wholeheartedly about how underwhelming this video was. Don't read any further if you're going to blindly defend bad acting because of character attachment.

Firebrand was too "sup".

At least EMH will be there in a video or two. Smile

I enjoyed it. I liked Firebrand's entrance and exit actually. Was pretty funny.

See but that's the problem for me... I was thought as Firebrand to be creepy and mysterious! Not a troll.... that appearance really pissed me off.

Well I mean... he is Noah. Sure he is future collective proxy Noah, but he is still Noah. Meaning he has all of the sass and troll abilities that current Noah has. 

And honestly if you got cool proxy powers, wouldn't you want to troll your pastself a bit?

It just takes me out of the immersion about 100% when something like that happens... :/

How so? I mean this is Noah we are talking about, it would be out of character for him to not have done that. 

I mean think on it like this. Firebrand has been under the Collectives control for... well I am not sure how Collective time works but I am going to guess for a long time. The biggest f.u. he could give them is by acting normal, making jokes, flipping off Slender Man. This is his way of rebellion. He isn't strong enough to directly fight them, just teleport Noah and make a few time loops. This is his rebellion, his way of fighting against them when he doesn't have the real power to do so.

The Collective is all about the creepy silent bullcrap, not showing up on camera and giving hints. Firebrand is basically throwing a big middle finger by showing up and being normal, like saying 'All that bullcrap you put me through couldn't make me not me, go eat me pricks'

Well looks at Dues Ex Machina (Or however you spell it) That video is CREEPY, the only funny part is with flippen off Slendy, but it just felt off for me I liked FB being creepy... :/ Least I still have the Observer.

Could just be that is a natural result of someone with collective abilities creating videos. 

And I wasn't argue that Firebrand wasn't creepy, just that it was in character.

Yeah to clarify,  I think his acting is usually excellent, I mean he did 'act' in Deus ex Machina; also whenever he's paranoid(ie: most always) its very easy to relate to him.  Thats what separates TT from MH, IMO.  Also the fact that TT is a narritive whereas MH is found footage style.  I actually have no idea how all this is going to end, I liked to think of it as one of the first series where someone...wins? No idea how that would work, but Adam's come up with some gold so far so heres hoping :p
