Actual Video: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/71755873/PaWC...

To help somebody putting Korean subtitles on PaWC, I have rendered a RAW version of the video. This video may also be used if anyone else is kind enough to translate the tutorial to another language: [I no longer have the RAW; would appreciate it if someone who does could upload it some place and send me the link]

The idea for this video came from me being unsatisfied with the other soldier tutorials out there. The two core issues being that they didn't focus on "bouncing/juggling/aerials" and that they didn't give you any idea on how to get better. They just sort of did the class specifics then wrapped up the video. As well, the name came from a friend, Mr_19 and is a reference to Counter-Strike For Kids. Use it as a reminder that just because you're good at the class, you don't have to be elitist; it's not like the Soldier's underpowered. One more note; the intro was inspired by a comic made by Xenon.

I do have a little more sympathy for other soldiers who made tutorials after trying to make a tutorial of my own, however. It takes a lot of time to dig through demos, realize they were broken by an update, record some more, dig through them, source-record specific clips, and then compile them into a video. Although the biggest problem came from time constrictions as I entered the class specifics. I planned for PaWC to be faster-paced than most tutorials from the beginning, but it sort of got to the point where I was cramming the "Vs. Pyro" and "Vs. Soldier" sections into a fraction of the time they were originally meant to fill. As well, only a few of the original still-transitions remain. I won't be surprised to hear some complaints about having to freeze the video or having to re-watch certain parts to catch everything, but I figure it's better than staring at the same information for 10 seconds after you've read it. And I'm aware of the few typos, but they are fixed in v2 which I've uploaded to dropbox.

But still, I'm satisfied with it, and I'm sure plenty of people can still learn from it. And in case you didn't catch some of the specifics:
