    New Dawn had better responsiveness. I dont know how seeing as their server was in EU.

    Being a west coaster, I had constant issues with whirlwind not going off on RoA, weapon binds not working when I press them, spells double casting or taking extra time to load up. Having anything above 70 ping is trash in this game and I wish theyd fix it. You'd think that would be priority seeing as how they only have one server.

    What I know is that in Counterstrike no one with a functional PC and peripherals EVER had to press the main gun key or the knife key or the pistol key or any of the nade keys more than one time for them to come out when the game is supposed to allow it.

    One presses the key, there is an animation depending on what you are pulling out, and that's it.

    Now, we know CS is a much more simple game than any RPG and the only "induction" based actions happen when you plant or defuse the C4 (or rescue the hostage). But nevertheless...

    Pressing the guns/knife/utility keys in CS Work everytime, 100% of the time with ANY ping - unless the server you are playing on is having serious issues.

    I had 135 ping from Texas and it felt smooth. Never had a problem but I did have friend on West Coast with 185 ping having problems.

    Sorry, my second paragraph was meant to be about BPG and ROA.

    New Dawn had a better GUI, it was much more responsive, ping-friendly due to the action queue, and allowed for more convenient features like the weapon bar and more bank sorting tools.

    New Dawn ended up failing because they had completely unrealistic gameplay-level design choices for which they did not have the resources to properly implement.

    RoA's GUI is arguably the driving factor in why a lot of ex-New Dawn players quit this game last year, that alongside the fact that sieges kept happening at 4-7 AM EU time.

    What do you find interesting? I think it would be interesting if Synna Number 1 elaborated!

    Not wanting money from the players while not being able to pay their taxes might have contributed to this as well. Big brain frenchies

    it feels more like the staff as multiple alternative fire buttons.

    but i get your point. we can get used to selecting staff, spell, clicking, but if you want more dps, you definetely want AHK in order to press 2 buttons: slow staff, ray(auto-cast).

    i just want the devs to implement that ingame: we should be able to press 1 button to pick staff + spell or ban ahk.

    Actually New Dawn devs being financially retarded and not paying their bills or charging for the game is what really killed them, they got taken to court and lost everything.

    Their server location being Paris also hurt them

    But I agree New Dawn was the superior product

    If it's so important to you, then use a script. It's not that hard. You definitely don't need one.

    "It's not really subjective, it's playable vs unplayable binds. You get different answers because people have always had to set binds up themselves in the past. BPG never finished setting up the binds anyways there were always bugs and they never did the tutorial that was supposed to go along side them. Not to mention a practice arena so people can practice. The default bindings aren't for vets that already have their own setup either, it is to help new players so they don't have to go through the hassle of setting up their own binds, or at least so they have some idea of what is necessary without asking for help.
    I still think it would be a good idea to have all of the default bindings listed in the spellbook so people can discover what spells they have bound to what at their own pace."

    reposting since it was deleted for "spamming"

    Uhhh, I don't really care either way on this topic, but how can you sit there and say "nobody is using AHK for this purpose." You wouldn't really know if they were, and it's fairly easy to setup a script to do this. It's not necessary sure, since double tapping a key is very easy... but kilrain also thought that the parry script didn't fix issues with parrying.

    ive never used ahk in roa, granted the shield script could prevent you from throwing a fight. The ig binds are about as simple as possible.

    Remember when keystrokes per second was an actual skill b4 everything was scripted, fuck a learning curve or skill ceiling amirite.
