Ya boi Nemo coming to you live with some of that good old knowledge stuff. Alas this time it is of a darker tone than I normally like to start a thread on. If you read the title (And I hope to god that you did if you found your way to this thread) you can probably already guess what I’m talking about. Maybe.
I know most of you don’t play Deande as obsessively as I do so you may not have noticed this. but what I tell you is true. Someone has been ■■■■■■■ with my beautiful holotwin and has FAILED to notify me. This. Is. Unacceptable.
the area in which the supposed stealth nerf took place has to do with the initial dash that you get after taking Double Trouble at level one left. More specifically it has to do with Deande’s travel along the positive Z axis (how high she goes), and possibly the distance travelled on said axis with relation to the X axis (how far she goes) (how high she goes over a distance).
Okay so you probably still dont get what I’m mad about. Look at this clip.
once you are done marvelling at how beautiful that kill was i need you all to pay attention to the initiation I made to for that burst dash. As you saw I simply jumped and used my holotwin to dash over the little wall.
I started from this point
the little half star. that is where the jump began. That clip was taken somewhere between winter update and summer update. But now after the summer update I can’t do this anymore.
So something has clearly been changed. And no i didn’t run a bazillion tests like I normally do. I ran only a few dozen after pitching the thought to Pheonix and @Deande . And I ran some tests with @Phoenix-2613 and I thought at that point that nothing had changed and we concluded I was crazy. But I swear I’m not crazy (well…). Something has changed and it’s been bugging me for months now. At first I though I was just messing it up but after so many repeated failed attempts to recreate this initiator I just can’t do it. So i’m hesitant to say the problem is me, but i wont out rule the possibility entirely.
That leaves me with two culprits. Either A, Deande’s jump height was nerfed, or B, the holotwin launch height was nerfed. I highly doubt it would be the jump height as I would have noticed that in a lot more spots, so my most likely culprit is a holotwin nerf.
And make no mistake this is a big deal to me. being able to do that jump on overgrowth meant I could keep my eyes on the target without having to drop kick and relocate them. It also allowed you to leave the clone behind easily and prevent the shock turret linking to you through it.
I reread the patch note and hot fixes and found nothing so if it was changed it was done under the radar. And I dont appreciate that.
Just as a side note, you can still make the jump over the railing but you have to be further back.
but as you can see this is only just barely enough to clear the railing. in fact, you end up walking off the railing whereas before you cleared it completely. Doing this jump is a little less practical because you cant come directly out of cabin with it, but im just letting you know it’s still kinda there.
So let me know your thoughts. Am I crazy? And If I am, what do you think about this supposed stealth nerf? And by what do you think about it i mean, explain why someone thought it was a brilliant idea to mess with my holotwin.
thank you for your time.
And sorry if this thread is a little sloppier than normal. I did in a half hour before bed and im going to regret taking as much time as I did to do this at work tomorrow.
