    I'm curious about this because over the years I've heard quite a bit of debate.

    Alfar/Human are reasonable, and Mahirim is wonky, but once you understand it, it's reasonable.

    Dwarf/Ork/Mirdain have fucked hitboxes. Dwarf/Ork are similarily fucked, but female dwarf takes the cake as the most fucked up hitbox in this game hands down. Mirdain is something else... squirrelling makes it impossible, the skinniness makes it impractical when at certain angles.

    I mean, there's something really wrong with this:

    Not even on the model...





    But when you do aim on the model:







    Ork Female:



    HELLO?

    Honestly what it comes down to is the game being broken, probably something to do with netcode. Hitboxes are rarely ever ontop of the fucked up race models. Even for the reasonable races, theres always broken shit.





    Theres a reason why people talk about movement in this game. Because you can make it practically impossible to be hit if you move in a way that fucks up your hitbox.

    Alfar. How anyone can argue otherwise is just... who knows.

    When it comes to spamming rays I have the hardest time in this order, Mahirim, Dwarf, Ork, but I don't have much practice fighting Mahirim so I'm never used to the hit box the other two actually have messed up hit boxes.

    Australians didn't make the cut because they may be immune to come hither and rays and other ranged forms of attacks you can literally sticky them full to dead in melee on cairn from niff.

    The Human is clearly the hardest to hit because why would anyone want to hit a human, it borders sociopathy if you ask me.

    mahirim because of strafespeed, male dorf because visible model is way wider than the hitbox and ork because they do some janky 45* lean when they strafe AND they're wider than hitbox

    anything else is easy you just have to aim at what you see.
