Hit detection and me

    I am still amazed at how great my hit detection is in this game, like its better than soooo many other FPS games. Worst part is that those dont support nearly as many players as this game and still have more shortcomings..

    This thread at least makes me feel a little better. Yesterday, after a break of gaming I kept getting killed by this infi. I kept going back to hunt him down and there were times he got me outright but there were times were I was shooting at him and he wasn't going down at all - prior to this pretty long break (except to play my skyguard) the guy would have been dead. Yes I was rusty but couldn't help feeling something wasn't quite right either/

    Have you considered the possibility that either the guy was super lagged out or cheating, or perhaps the player firing the shots was lagged out and the game suddenly caught up with itself.

    Just FYI the guy in that video was shot in the back by some one else, and nothing else was moving in that video. It could have been extreme packet loss.

    i really dislike when i'm in a fight and i run to cover. then i take an additional 2 to 3 steps behind cover and then die.

    also when my bursters or sky lightning stop hitting all together. i can go from hitting everything to just bad dead periods where no matter what i do nothing hits or registers.

    This must be what's happening when I spray someone's feet with 20 Lasher shots and they kill me with barely a dent in their shields. It was probably happening with the Orion too, I just didn't feel as bad with the Lasher since I could blame my (wonkier) losses on, you know, dueling people with a Lasher.

    The hit detection with knives is terrible too. Probably something to do with lag and awful physics models.
