Trials of Osiris - Flawless Victory

CruelLEGACY sent us a compilation vid he made. I'll just let him introduce it: "Week 5 features the Thieves' Den map. Being a relatively new map, a lot of players are still getting a feel for its specific ins and outs. Players looking to jump in to Trials this weekend might find this video helpful for learning their way around the map." Maybe someday I'll see that Lighthouse...
