But wouldn't it be better to run over by the wall, stop, and force them to take the time to kill you? You're still better off not running into the wall.
Also, at the start new players will always forget (or veterans missing filters) this feature so there will be always some matches with bot destroyed and lesson learned.[/quote]
New players will definitely forget, but I doubt veterans will (assuming they read the updates thread. You just have to go into your retreat subroutine and add a filter that checks if the wall is in close range. I don't think it necessarily makes the game worse, but the only way I see it helping me is on Kingmaker, since my shotgun likes to get pushed into the bottom wall.
EDIT:Also, is the gold rank now supposed to be ~1550 to 2292? Because that's what its showing me.
EDIT2:Actually, I'm pretty sure I couldn't get it to update, so maybe that's why there's problems. I'm going to try to update it now, but the google store says I'm on the most advanced version. I'm a bit confused.
EDIT3:I got the update from the forum, and it works right. However, the new ranking system is horrible, IMO. I don't want to constantly play against people above 1900, there's just no point. I'm just slowly going to lose all my elo, since those guys can just match all they want, and pad their losses by beating what used to be Master league. Eventually all the former masters will just get demoted, so it's not like this helps with the shrinking player base. Maybe I'm a minority, but I definitely vote to go back to the older system.
