It wasn’t new knowledge that if Thanos were to complete his Infinity Gauntlet he would have the ability to eliminate half of humanity, but still, when that moment came and heroes started disappearing out of thin air it was extremely emotional to watch. As it turns out, emotion was the number one component the Russo Brothers honed in on when it came to deciding which heroes would be the ones to bite the dust. It became less about the character who was disappearing and more about the one helplessly watching it happen,
It was hard to watch those characters disappear (don’t even get me started on Spider-Man’s exit) and even harder to grasp the fact that they probably won’t be playing huge roles in Avengers 4. The reactions of the comrades of the fallen heroes elevated the scene extremely high but it also moved the story along, which is another point the Russo brothers have echoed when discussing how they chose who went.
