    I never noticed until reviewing footage from a siege last night how STUPID this is.

    When there are volcano's going off over 100 feet away and I can not hit a couple simple heals due to the dumb screen shake it's not fun. Plus it seems to fuck with performance.

    Just my buddy watching the footage I was showing him of the funnest siege I have been on,... was embarrassing.

    He pointed out how often and horrible the game was due to screen shake.

    They are a little overboard during big fights. Would be nice to tone them down at the very least. Most of us are desensitized to the shaking at this point, but new and prospective players see it in videos are are very confused/disoriented

    Hi.

    Screen shake and reduce damage please.

    Thanks.

    45s to the front is garbage.

    My friends said, 'This game would be a nightmare for someone with epilepsy'

    I honestly never notice it at all while playing it wasn't until watching it and how often it was going on I even thought about it.

    Yes they should remove all self buffs and give every player that base stat to be honest. Fix thunderstorm dmg and range a bit.

    Couple small changes there would help this bs ttk nonsense

    Screen shake is part of the feel of the game. I wouldn't go as far as removing it altogether.

    It's what AV was capable of coming up with in 2009. I wouldn't cling too hard to it.

    Most games with screen shake allow it to be turned off.

    It serves no purpose at all.

    It definitely can be a feature to be disabled with the flip of a switch.

    It looks really bad in videos and doesn't really add anything to the game. Would like it gone.

    Just remove screen shake on volcano or make it last 1 second just like when you get hit by a knock-up initiallty.

    Just don't completely remove screen-shake because of one spell.

    Sadly it's all spells.

    r90s, needles, magma, when everyone is shooting them all over the small screen shake from them all is out of hand.

    Yeah, i figured it out after watching a random video. I think i got so used to the screen shaking that i hardly noticed it unless it was from volcano or a direct hit.

    In my opinion, it should only cause screen-shake when you get hit directly. It should last as long as the first few dot from a volcano when you get directly hit by it.

    I just think it should be something you can enable or disable. It does add to the feel of the game but, it also is horrible to watch and is extremely annoying if you notice it while playing like I have been. It makes drives me nuts.

    Any staff able to let us know if this is even a feature that could be set as a toggle, removed, or changed?

    Just like everything else we'll discuss it. We read everything, trust that and know that if there is no response it doesn't mean we're not watching :)

    It helps with immersion quite a bit, maybe adjust it slightly but i wouldn't get rid of it.
