So this happened. Results were as follows:DoubIe A wrote:It's two simple forge maps I made that I use to warm up. One is long range, one is close range.

There is no reason to debate this with spread, kill time, blah blah blah.
Anyone who wants to test it out, send me a message. I will be on at around 4 pm est. It will take a few minutes per person.
There are two variables not accounted for. One is who will have the best connection to the server. The other is if I my skill level is too high that I dominate you with both BR and magnum. But I think it still should become clear to all of you BR haters that it is still good. Or maybe I will realize the BR sucks (doubt it).
My gamertag is Doubie A
Once the test is completed, post the results here.
One of us will use BR and the other will use magnum. Then we will switch weapons.
I also made shield recovery fast so less time is wasted waiting for Shields and I upped damage resistance to 200% to extend battles.
if you don't like the shield and damage stuff I don't care. I will revert it back to original settings.
Close range map:
Weakachu Pistol v Double A BR: 8-6
Weakachu BR v Double A Pistol: 9-7
Weakachu BR v Double A BR: 1-2
(Very) Long range Map:
Weakachu Pistol v Double A BR: 3-14
Weakachu BR v Double A Pistol: 9-2
(Ad hoc) Medium Range:
Weakachu Pistol v Double A BR: 4-3
Coliseum 1v1 No Power weapons/ grenades:
Weakachu Pistol v Double A BR: 4-0
Shot wise, the skill level was pretty even.
Our consensus was that the pistol was superior at close range. The BR was much better at long range, but in my opinion it was a longer than you'd ever see in an HCS game. It was also inside the BR's scopes aim assist range and not the pistol's. Still, the results were what they were.
I am still of the mindset that for the types of situations that occur in HCS games (and considering the other weapons on the map) I would much prefer the pistol.
