demoknight xbox 360 controller exploit
i hope valve patches it up. i doubt valve ever intended for the demoknight to do 720 degree spins. blows my mind why the controller would turn so much more when it should be the same as the keyboard. theres no point in using the wee booties which dont even give you half as much turning power as the exploit.

its kind of ridiculous when you dodge a demo knights charge only to have him uturn a few feet away and crit you in the face. this exploit has also gone unfixed for years.

I've never encountered Demoknights using 360 controllers before.

talked to one exploit user and he mentioned something about the controller, another just said he was using a 360 script. heres a video of what I mean.

I use a controller when playing demoknight because it's the only thing that actually makes demoknight a viable option otherwise you're wasting a slot on your team against competent players.

In all honesty do you believe demoknight is viable without any crazy turning? Without the booties he can only go in a straight line and that's incredibly easy to track. With the booties you can turn more but you're limited to melee or if you're odd a stickybomb launcher and melee.

theres a difference between viable and overpowered. it may be easier to get kills with it, but you mustnt forget the other defense bonuses of using a chargntarge or splendid screen. an exploiter can easily tank most shots and get the crit shot. and with something like the persian persuader he can have an easy crit every 6 seconds AND get extra health.

without the exploit demos get the defense bonuses and are forced to choose when to charge more skillfully. its harder to get kills, but its more legit way of getting them. and the point of the wee booties is to allow you to turn more. just because legit demo knight is harder doesnt mean you should cheat to get kills. and in a way, yes, it is cheating.

In no situation is demoknight OP with or without a controller/script. As for actually getting kills with the shields and crits even with a controller the targe requires a bit of timing and precision as with the splendid screen you can miss your melee strike and still do a lot of damage or even OHKO someone since the shield does like 100+ damage. If anything the controller/script isn't the issue it's the splendid screen.

I still don't see an issue either way since the stickybomb launcher will do even more damage from a distance.

This has been an issue since the targe'n'charge was added in-game. A lot of people know just no one demoknights because demoknight is really UP.
