Don't overdo it on the sound effects volume, maybe it's for testing purposes but the volume of the ambient/wind/whatever sounds should be lowered imho.

That's one thing that has been bothering me ever since you showed that wind sound way back: .

I wouldn't worry about it, I think the purpose of the video was to show of those sound effects so they will obviously be louder in the video.

Will be a good idea paint the model of the rabbits with this new effect of alpha on textures. Will be nice for identify teams or a kind of "range" of each rabbit.

the start looks cool, like some epic endfight against your nemesis at a pathway of a high mountain above the clouds *sigh*
*vanishes in dreams*

Oh, and the sliding on the ice looks kinda wrong, you might add some 'snow dust' when he slides
