Please sell me on glorified cheats

Postby lamefun » Thu Oct 05, 2017 12:14 pm UTC

I'm of course talking about dretch floor head bite and strafe-jumping.

They seem to be good for nothing (except making the game less playable without the knowledge of them).

What significant benefits do these have over common sense friendly mechanics?

Here's just one example:

- Have only two damage areas: head and everything below it.
- Make so that dretch, mantis and marauder have to jump or wallwalk in order to score headshots.
- Make marauder accelerate just by jumping, without all of the strafing nonsense.

Please enlighten me.

So basically these 'cheats' make the skill cap higher? I can see your point, if that's the case. Why not allow it to become an integral part of the game, if it elevates it and doesn't completely break it.
