Shot Aiming More Forgiving Post Patch

Literally 12 hours ago I was in 2kU still trying to give shot aiming a chance and was missing shots close to the sweet spot and could never make one. This morning after the patch I am hitting a much higher percentage and the aiming is more forgiving if you’re close enough to the sweet spot. I Think the aiming was solely to combat the latency issues online and not to be a punishment for being slightly off. I feel as though they did it right finally but I know a lot of people will complain about how many shots are made but only time will tell

I thought aiming wasn’t affected by latency. Shooting in general is more forgiving

I've seen no evidence of this. I think a few random impressions are hardly enough for us to draw this conclusion.

The aiming is terrible for me some games. The same lag that will affect your button push, is 10 times more disruptive when trying to aim for the shot stick. Aiming is impossible for me with Lag.

I'm not even sure if its all latency or if its a combination of that and the fact that most used controllers don't have that fine of accuracy on the stick. I find even the smallest adjustments dramatically moving the aiming point many times.

My controller that has pretty fair amount of stick drift (I have to use 0.17 deadzone on Call of Duty Warzone to even get it to stop moving by itself) is near impossible to shoot with the stick. However, it's much more manageable using one of the longer kontrol freeks that I also use for CoD.

Have you tried shooting with the meter off?

I'm all in on the aim stick now. Even on finishing. I hope it sticks around. I honestly don't think I can go back to timing.

I feel like it eliminates situations where you won't take certain shots because of the awkwardness of the timing...full library is open.

Tisk, tisk 24. Haha. When you spoke of aiming, I assumed you meant with the meter on. Do you shoot aim with the meter or without?

I do a combination of different things. No meter. I shot jumpers with the button. I shot layups with the stick but timing. I use shot aiming with no meter only for John Collins, because his shot is glitched on the button.

I prefer layups with timing, because it is the only shot process that allows you to alter layups at will. Altering layups at will can draw fouls, and allow you to score in traffic.

Have you figured out a way to alter a “layup” with the aim option?
