I don't get it, Yukaraj's statement is true.

Default Re: 3rd person and versus mode

partially back on topic:
IDK, I play in 1st person mode, yet I often hide behind walls and predict the timing when people are going to come out. Just needs a bit of skill, brain and situational awareness.
But yeah - using 3rd person to simply see behind a wall needs no skill and/or brain and is totally ghey.

The hud flames are a horrible thing and I would love to see an option to disable them.
They are so bad I avoid using SD on single-player/coop completely and think twice before taking a dropped SD on versus.
Not only are those flames an annoying visual clutter that makes much harder to see and maintain focus, those flames also kill the framerate on older/weaker hardware. (At times my fps used to drop by as much as half when picking up SD when I still used an Nv GF 7600 GT)

Making it uncomfortable to use is actually a good thing versus-wise; it makes people who use it a lot stronger, but also a lot more immobile because of the flames on the HUD hiding a margin of the view.

The discussion about third person is everlasting and I don't think it will ever end.

...yet the flames are not present on 3rd Person view. Which *kerching!* gives the 3rd person users an even bigger advantage.
Along with making it a Powe-Up Letdown in single player in 1st person mode.

Which is kinda ghey.

Yeah, I know, hence why I added my comment about third person right under the sentence that you quoted.

I don't see it. Hold on.

*throws logic out the window*

Nope still don't see it. Oh well I give up on this one, maybe some other time.

I wonder if I can file a feature request for Croteam to have an option to disable that darn SD flame effect. No need for a fancy setting in the menu - a cvar would be perfectly enough.
