And U base that opinion on what, exactly? If animation-canceling can not be prevented, how come everything doesn't clip everything, or at least clipping abilities are not random? What's so difficult about preventing support abilities (like PD, or shields) from clipping damage powers and how come damage abilities do not clip each other? How come weapon attacks don't clip powers? How come Supply Drop can clip powers, while Air Strike can only clip weapons? How is it that PI consumables (like Karmic Hex or Dazing Device) and soders clip anything, but ranged damaging ones (like Shock Inducers and Static Grenades) can only clip weapons? How come U get lower damage from ranged weapon attacks like HB's Charged Blast, if U cancel/clip the animation? How is it, that Rifle's Mortar clipped too early cancels the damage, but clipped around half-way through the animation doesn't? Why does jump-canceling Terrorize before second damage tick - cancels that tick? The above (and there's plenty more) suggests that Devs have at least some level of control over animations cancelling, but chose to keep it the way it is, most likely to speed up the combat and give it some depth. If they couldn't stop the powers/trinkets/consumables from being triggered while weapon animations are in progress - for some reason, which no one has been able to even hint at, so far - they could just make the clips cancel the damage, more-less like how Mortar clipped early doesn't do damage now. That would soon deter anyone from clipping, or - more likely - from using weapons. So yeah - can we please have some evidence for the claims that "clipping can not be fixed"? Anyone with ANY idea about game design/programming cares to enlighten us? Because so far, all I'm seeing is people with no apparent clue, using this argument as an excuse for not learning to play the game effectively. I could have an opinion, that the Knight in chess was supposed to move in straight lines (because, for example: all the other figures move in straight lines, that L-shape looks like a joke) but unless I could come with some sort of evidence for it - I wouldn't expect anyone to respect that opinion, or change the way the game is played just to please me.
