    This has had two effects.

    The first is good. It allows a more even playing field for those who are being shot at first. Usually, a 1 on 1 encounter resulted in the death of the person who was shot first, only because  they were unable to actually aim after they were hit. 

    The second effect, that I view as bad, is that there is very little indication now that you are being hit. We die so quickly compared to other FPS games that have tons of HP or armor that the red markers are practically useless in showing where we are being hit from. My suggestion is to add a blurring or pattern noise in a radial pattern from the crosshair in a red shade to the side of the screen you're being hit from instead of a red hit marker.

    No regs are now possible -- I think this is from adjusting the player model. I am getting hit a lot and blood splatters from player model but does not damage me.

    Will consider the idea about the additional hit marks.

    It appears that teleporting hotkeys for armory are broken. But LMB clicking them still works. The hotkey still teleports you and uses coins, but you never leave the spot you opened the menu from.

    The hit notification is also very laggy. I'm often dead right at the moment the first marker shows up when going against auto guns. 

     

     

    Also, could we get a truck and jet HP bar? Possibly blue? The smoke is very helpful, but there is over 700 HP on truck where there is no indication on how much damage we are doing.

    Also, the weak point on the jet is too small. I don't know if the original intention was for the entire air vent to be a weak point, but right now it is only a very tiny spot below the vents, not much bigger than a crosshair dot in size. Its nearly impossible to intentionally aim for it at any distance but point blank.

    And does truck have a weak point? I have shot every inch of the truck and have never managed to find it.

    Adding this first: This is mostly a good update, and anything I'm not about to complain about is a good change for this version.

    - Changed "has left" notification to "disconnected"

    I feel like you should have done one or the other. I think that "disconnect" associates more closely with "server", and "has left" associates more closely with "room". I assume you did it to make it clear that a disconnect isn't always by someone choosing to leave (eg. high ping, kicked, etc.) Either way, not a huge deal.

    I have stronger opinions here. I've felt that that camera shake/flinch allowed auto users to have a better chance against higher damage, single fire weapons. As a certified blastgun enjoyer, it was probably the biggest tool I had. By getting the first hit, and not missing any shots, I could reliably kill a target before needing to bail out and reload. This update has made it significantly harder to do so, because my opponent now has more time to aim back and get far more hits on me than they otherwise would. This matters a lot more when pings can be upwards of 200, and they can damage me after I've killed them on my screen. Now, while I would very much like this back, I'm also totally fine with reducing the amount the screen shakes. I see people complain about it quite a bit, and I can find a middle ground to make the game more fun for them as well.

    What I would strongly recommend re-implementing is the red damage screen effects on a hit. Currently its difficult to know when I'm taking damage. The audio and small red icon just arent enough communication to the player, unfortunately.

    I Personally have 2 things.

     

    first one is more as a bug or maybe its just my butterfigers but i have the feeling that when i use traps and press v it doesnt set the trap down so i want to trap something fast run there trap and jump back but there is no trap so i have to do it again. Thats kind of anyoing especially when the trap is saving ur ****...

     

    Other is removing the shake is kind of op for snipers. Because snipers allways had to be carfull encountering the autogun. Now they can be outside of hiding and still be able to kill the autogun player.

     

    Next thing the shaking indecated how fare you are away of dieng. Because as soon as it starts shaking u had to take cover or press c c so it kind of gets better to fiere back. So sometimes im not shure if i get hit or not. So i sometimes just die "for no reason" i was hit before but i thougt i wasnt... So bringing flinch back would be good. It could be reduced tho so it doesnt need to be that shaky as before.

     

    But thats just my opinion

    @Max, can you please add back the shake thing when you're being shot? It is annoying being shot at/killed and having no idea you were even being hit or anything.

    I had to log into my main just to agree with everyone else that competely removing aimpunch is an extremely terrible gameplay change.

    Merely tweaking the aimpunch strength by reducing it would suffice. Removing it means you no longer have the element of surprise on other players. Snipers and shotgun players will now greatly benefit from this (for worse) and close quarters combat poses no risk to them anymore, making them far more superior and unbalanced.

    Big factor which decides the skill of any given player is the ability to correct their aim when being aimpunched. Now it's just whoever shoots first and tracks targets more consistently.

    Removing screenshake and effects is a huge mistake, i don't need to explain about it because others did.

    I'm right there with everyone on the camera. I had a love-hate relationship with the camera shake, but I feel removing it just take away from the experiance.

    I see, the game actually had an improved version of the camera shake (when it would shake in the opposite direction of the hit, instead of being random), but decided to remove it before the release. Going to re-add it soon.

    I'm finally warming up to the no shake now.

    @Max, it's just that you can be shot and have no idea until you're dead, worse if you're not using sound.

    @Max, maybe instead of removing the whole feature, how about making it optional in settings like "Camera Shaking Effect" False, or "Camera Shaking Effect" True. Is it possible to add that instead in settings instead of removing it?

    The screen-shake problem is the same as what happens with hp, when someone with high ping tracks you, they fry your hp in a fraction of a second, leaving you with no reaction time. High ping gives that incredible advantages.
    Imagine 2 or more ppl shooting at you like that. And no movement can save you cus when you try to move they probably already empty their clip on you and you haven't received that info just yet.

    Excellent clarification actually. This is what I was trying to explain to some people.

    Maybe if max lowers the shake effect when getting shot in the body and makes it more strong only when getting shot in the head/upper body.

    or it can be stronger when standing so crouching reduce it.

    but we definitely need something to counter this effect cus the problem with ping and the relation with this is more complicated to fix.
