    I voted no but i’m starting to like the old sight for sniping. In “practice” mode 🙄 I hit more often when sniping with the old sight. As opposed to going to a side angle and trying to judge if sight and tank are even.

    I stick to the old site 99% of the time. I still do check the side view for sniper shots too. When the shot is a good distance across the map, I check the side view and check to see if the angle looks ok and sort of draw the arc in my head. Sometimes the shot looks just a little too steep and I can catch see it better that way.

    Since you did that and want updates there, I’m gonna unsticky this to clean up a bit. Feel free to change it back.

    It is good to clean up the stickies sometimes, I do like that the thread was getting a lot fo views here though, not sure as many will see in wiki.

    On the other hand, pending a review of how useful this guide actually is (I’d like to poll – “did you find this guide useful” Y or N.) Perhaps it could be added to the actual game help, or directly linked into the wiki from the scorched3d home page. I was thinking about what deathbal asked, and I wonder if there is any way we can make it easier for noobs to learn the aiming techniques. This guide isn’t what I call comprehensive, only first hand experience is that, nor would I say it is necessarily easy to do at first try, but perhaps it could be better.

    Thoughts.

    Is there a particular reason that the link to the wiki is put in a less than obvious place? Why isn’t it put as an icon on the top of the page? Just wondering.

    Back on topic I don’t think I have ever tried the old sight, which means I don’t think I will either. 😉

    Not sure what you guys think about it, but don’t you think “wiki” might mean more to someone than “docs”

    I can see both an upside and a downside to this. The upside is that anyone who’s used the internet for awhile knows what wiki is and would probably make more sense out of it than “docs”.

    On the downside, people who haven’t used the internet that much may not know what the word “wiki” is. I myself, just learned of the word about…. 2 years ago myself.

    Don’t worry. You’ve a long way to go yet before you wind up with your foot in your mouth as much as I have in the past. 😉

    I have long wished for a better name for the wiki than docs… reason being… we all call it THE WIKI!! 😯

    honestly, I’d say change it. docs says to newbs…. EULA.. and “boring”

    Wiki is just fun to say 😀
