Strafing......

177 replies 6538 views Edited Aug 14, 2012

So I know we have Fleet Foot and this is quite a Booster but I'd like to hear ya'lls thoughts on strafing overall in the game.

 

Now, please, understand I'm just starting a dialog here.  Nothing will be touched but I'd like to read your thoughts on the issue.

 

Pros:

- it's immediate speed going left and right offer a tactic high level players can master with aim

- when two players do 'the dance' it feels like a test of skill

- creates you being a difficult target

 

Cons:

- low levels players can't hit $*%& when aiming at someone using this tactic

- IMO, it takes value away from using cover (why take cover to avoid fire when I can just dance?)

- low levels players can't hit $*%& when aiming at someone using this tactic (yeah, I said it again!)

 

Let's get to talking!

I actually thought it was a pretty cool booster but then I moved onto scoped in!

I personally think Fleet Foot shouldn't even be in the game. Why should I use a booster to increase aim movement speed and take away my chance at using other boosters?

Personally, I'd make everyone have the same strafing speed and just scrap Fleet Foot (which I know will never happen).

People are usually corner shooting at me, not strafing. Smiley Very Happy

 

Like you said, people don't know how to strafe anymore, they just... 'dance' around... Smiley Indifferent

I've never really enjoyed using Fleet Foot because I'm accustomed to and like the regular strafing speed we have in the game. Strafing in general is a good tactic when it comes to gun fights, so even though I've always disliked Fleet Foot, I can see the strong appeal behind the booster. Previously, Fleet Foot gold's strafing speed was ridiculous and the reduction of speed (the way it is right now) is perfectly fine, IMO. The rare times that I do use it with the FAL, I never get affected by the stopping power so I don't see the big deal. You still have an advantage over anyone that doesn't have it, IF you can strafe effectively. It's still a popular booster because I see it in every match I play, which should be of no surprise since it's the easiest booster to level up in this game.
