In the meantime send me videos of epic matches.

lit as fuck.

Pretty cool! Although the splitscreen is a bit difficult to work with... maybe add match sizes for people who don't want that?

Glad you liked it!

The split screen is to accommodate players getting far from one another. if the camera zoomed out farther it would make it too difficult to see the characters. The angle of the split screen is indicative of the angle between the players and can be used as a guide for dashes. The actual distance at which it splits is not set in stone, but I'm not sure of a good way to make it optional altogether.

can i monetize videos of this

Go for it.
