wow...

headshots in tribes are completely pointless

due to horrible netcode, no lag compensation and a projectile that actually travels plus very fast movements, a headshot can't be aimed for nor done on purpose, its only luck if you get one...
(maybe with the exception if a target moves in a stright line towards you or is standing still)

if you do get a headshot basically it only means you almost missed the target, lol

so remove the headshot alltogether

thx

bins out

I agree with goffe, the more i play quake the more i see just how bad tribes netcode and aim system actually is...while headshot may seem nice, lets be honest, how many of you actually aim for the head when getting one?

Alright peeps,

Thanks for voting and sharing your opinions. This topic is now closed. I will evaluate this together with Cobra in the coming days and then we will conclude what is best.

Since this was quite a success, feedback wise, I am thinking of creating more of such topics sooner or later.

Anyways, stay tuned!
