1.the only thing it does is annoys you in 1vX figths (you do swing, turn cam 180, but your weapon turns more than 330 and you get no dmg)
2.turn cap allows only 360 spins, they would still look more realistic than other animation abuses.
3.these 360 spins are barely viable

  • in duels they are countered by simple sidestep
  • in frontlines you will get gambled every time

Windup turn cap doesn’t allow 360’s. You are mistaken.

There is no such thing as animation abuse. Just utilizing intended mechanics.

while swinging you can turn your weapon 330 degrees and more, otherwise there wouldn't be glancing blow mechanic. no one said that 360 windup spin is possible

i call animation abuse things that look confusing and unrealistic like stab drags, wristy twistys or just spastic movements (twitching mouse+feinting). Not that i'm against it, otherwise game would be boring.

Ye, devs know it's stupid, but removing might mean some people will start posting clips of 360s and complain that they're broken and unrealistic and other stupid stuff, which is bad for the game's public image.

unfortunately normies can't understand that there's little practical application to 360s in a 1v1 and that glancing blow fucks 1vX hard, all they see is "wtf he ballerina spin UNREALISTIC STUPID GAME!!!!!!"
