[QUOTE=tokamak;379562]All those examples demonstrate a substantially lower effectiveness once they venture outside of their niche. The quickscope sniper however, not so. It’s an obvious exploit rather than a tactic or improvisation.
And don’t think Blizzard doesn’t respond to new inventions. They apply (bi)monthly patches to balance the meta game.[/QUOTE]
- The effectiveness of CQ sniping is lower than its traditional use - if you miss youre screwed.
From personal experience its basically impossible, to be as lethal in close on a consistent basis vs traditional use. I could give you specific numbers but it would only look like I was bragging. cough
The only real positive going for CQ sniping is that it forces players to deal with something, that they arent really used to dealing with. Only when it becomes the norm, do players start to prefire rockets around corners as a counter.
- Yes Blizzard do go ahead and patch things out if they see something they dont like. But thats Blizzards call, not yours or mine. Meaning players can only assume its there by design, until the developer completely removes it. CQ sniping still exists in etqw
