Frag movies are never a reflection of true gameplay.

This is sad that some players use mouse macros software and still get awards. This is the same, as to use rubber-doll.

Macros don't really work in the game. Remember, these are frag movies, edited and custom made. You cannot expect them to be a truth reflection of gameplay.

Joe - please..i have nothing against system, because system is much bigger than we - real-deal players. I'm just sad that some players don't wanna use real skill. We all know about mouse macros software. Even mine not so expensive mouse have some "bonus" for a few extra bucks - this bonus help player to aim perfectly at enemy in 0,5 sec.. And don't forget "sound sonar" software.

On an optimistic note - there will be some "summer event"? In August, i mean?

Frag movies are never a reflection of true gameplay. Especially when we ask for them to have good editing.

I have not claimed anything to be wrong with gameplay, performance nor gaming results - only weapon handling mechanics, whether they are used as designed or easily achievable. Neither did I indicate videos authors skill to be compromised. The game is as it is.

If you think that macro is not working try to make video replay for yourself and compare recoil (this is actualy AK-74, T3 assault rifle with hard recoil). You can change video speed for 0.25 for example for better visibility. His colimator moves max. 2-3 millimeters up and down. And this is not in-game replay. This is his gameplay replay from 1st person perspecrive made by other software, so there's no visual bug. Almost every player know how it works. Many computer mouses have such software. Even mine, but I can't even play without recoil, becouse it's pointless for me. In my opinion VG doesn't want to see the problem, becouse they don't have time and resources to solve it.

Previous recoil system was fine. Max wanted to do well, but he screwed up.

Here´s another proof of macros working in Survarium. I´m sick of mods and admins spreading propaganda of "macros don´t work in Survarium". This is the same case how it was with "Survarium´s hack-proof", how it was solidly propagated before the introduction of BattlEye
https://youtu.be/K9rfqNcp29s?t=8m15s

So what doesn´t make Leagues a place where some of the top players use such software? And what doesn´t make macros an unfair advantage?

Does this statement imply that we are free to try to use them, for example to set constant pressing LMB to do LMB tap and switch tapping A and D every 0,02s or so to perform perfect adad style of gameplay with recoil pattern reset and get 3000rpm for single fire? Or maybe faster tapping to try to lag the server? I have never played with macros, but would there be no harm, why to make it harder for yourself? This is an honest question, thanks for answer!

I'd say this is not possible because VG has limited the number of mouse inputs per ms some time ago.

That was just an example... Would it be 50 inputs per second, you would get 50x60=3000 inputs (clicks, shots) per minute. Would it be just 10, you get 600rpm for single fire shooting. Dunno the numbers. Main question was, if macros do not work, is it legal to try to use them? For cheats we have an answer = ban from battleye. If statement that marcros are useless is true, they should do no harm to gameplay and should not be restricted.

btw is anything regarding this topic stated in game rules? I am not a laywer myself to find it out :(

It is not legal to discuss on the forum, nor to use macros in the game.
Back on topic please, any further macro discussion will be removed without notice.
Thanks.
