Because normal walking should show up on the radar as it always has. There was no need for any changes to the motion detector. If they want to remove it or change it for the ranked or even "pro" play then fine. But if they want to please more players some aspects should stay the same. There was nothing wrong with a 25 meter radar where all movement, except crouch walking, and shooting shows up
Not even going to play proving grounds honestly. The radar has been so useless for so long I have become accustomed to ignoring it by now. Also this "only Spartan abilities" show up is lame. So no need to crouch walk or any thing you don't show up normal walking. I wish 343 would tell us why they felt a need to make changes to the radar to begin with. It's changes for the sake of changes that don't even make sense.They explicitly said they made the test due to competitive player feedback, and I agree. Radar has no place in ranked play, 343 refuse to scrap it so instead they're trying to minimize its use to an extent while opening up new ways to play IE slowing down the pace which I throughly enjoy quite a bit.
Don't understand how you can not even give it a try and then say croutching is pointless when you're wrong. It still hides you from sight as it always has, people still mix it in with their strafes, and it still gives weapons less recoil and the like.
"As it always has" isn't a reason if it can improve the game tho. This test so far has slowed the pace, making BMS show up just means people will go right back to sprinting. Ill also add that "if" this test gains traction my best bet is it'll only go towards the team arena playlist because of where the feedback came from to begin with. If it's only for team arena then there's no need to please other players as it's not for them, they can keep the other radar that has been there since launch.
thing is, if there was nothing wrong with the other setup, they wouldn't wouldn't be doing this test to start out with, but people have complained about the radar since launch, some for certain reasons, others for different reasons.
Personally if this radar actually makes it to team arena it'll be an extra spark on getting me to play this game again/more as it changes much if my dislikes and makes things more tolerable. The pace is slowed down, Spartan charge becomes easier to see coming, makes people have to think more tactical on their movements, encourages more callouts (and I'm a team guy) and makes certain parts of different maps actually traversable that weren't viable before.
