View Full Version : Is a cheat to use taunts ?

I think YES... i like to see a limit to this use in CSHP new versions:
what do you think about ? :)

Well, Taunts are annoying and there has been big debates regarding their binds/use.

To limit them would probably be a bit hard. But i will check.

I think he means the binds like moveleft | taunt wave | onrelease taunth thrust.

Which make it seem that u r looking one way when u r looking the other, this is banned in most leagues.

Yes, i know what the taunt bindings are. And they annoy me like hell too.

The thing is, i can't just check the bindings, its not enuff.

Like i said, i wil take a look.

Valhalla Avatar can disable taunts, client and server side:

IMO they aren't cheating (Epic added them on purpose!), but whatever...

Thank you very much :)
If its possible to stop its the community can be beneficied.
If taunts dont give any extra advantage, so why some players use its ?
I like to play with the same conditions and possibilities in all the CSHP servers.
And players with taunts stop to give the same play conditions to all of us. And this thing is not good.
Thanks again and best regards !

I'll try and explain more specifcally why it's a cheat then,..

U r in a 1v1 situation, ur enemy is looking to his left, so u try and circle strafe round to his right and shoot him, that way he has to turn more and may not see you so quickly etc.

But i he is using wave binds (which is banned in most serious leagues) he can seem to be looking another one than he actually is. Therefor you can't try and 'blind side' him very well since u don't know what way he is looking.

... so in this case i would they it is not directly a cheat - it sound more like bugusing - it sounds more friendly - but still a kind of cheat - IMO same status like clipping ... but it does only matter in 1:1 games because in a clanwar it doesn't matter where you look - you will be fragged soon =)

It does matter in 5v5 etc, just not as much.
