    It makes big fights cancer and very difficult to enjoy so I would like to see your logic as to why you think it should remain.

    honestly id like at the very least an option to turn it off

    i turn off screen shake (and motion blur, but not relevant to df) in literally -EVERY- game i own and play because not only does it not really serve a purpose 99% of the time, it leans more on the side of making me sick than making it immersive.

    Just curious what there is to defend with shake?

    It's not immersive, it's annoying. I don't strategically place my nukes in the middle of people to shake their screen, it's a side effect.

    It's actually a bit ridiculous how much my screen shakes during these fights. Most of the spells are not even hitting within a 25 meter radius of me and just sends my screen into earth quake mode. I would've fully enjoyed this siege if it wasn't for that. It was kind of a let down because this was actually my biggest Darkfall siege I have been apart of and its just a bunch of screen shaking from 50% of the meta Mage spells.

    Doesn't seem like there is a big reason to have screen shake, both sides get it in fights. It's just annoying, at least tune it down.

    Definitely remove the screen shake completely. I'm yet to see someone put up a reasonable argument in its defence and it adds nothing to gameplay. Confusion I think is fine how it is tbh.

    I hate screen shake. I also dont think it adds anything positive and it makes our game look like SHIT in videos. im firmly in the get rid of it camp. or tone it down by like 90% if you guys really feel you need the screen to shake for some reason.

    yuck

    I think it should be toned down and diminishing returns added as Jonah said, also should be removed from spells like ball lightning which cause an inordinate amount of screen shake.

    I think it adds to immersion and chaos of combat especially in sieges I love the feeling of madness as the screen shakes and spells flying all over, people screaming in comms, it all adds together to the Darkfall experience.

    Off topic here but I would absolutely pay for reimplementation of the old school spell effects, I like the raw sound of exploding charge and some of the old earth and necromancy spells had great hard hitting effects. These combined together to create the awesome feeling of Darkfall large scale combat.

    Blinds are just as annoying, and no more or less immersive.

    Except they have a purpose in fights.

    As has been pointed out by multiple people.

    +1 on removing screen shake except maybe for a few specific spells (ie eye rot)
    +1 on adding in diminishing return on some spells, like for example blinds and wof

    I didn't mind it until I fought some elfwraiths the other day and me and the mob were casting some air nuke that causes shaky shit and it was nonstop shaking and it got a bit obnoxious
