You (can) get used to it, and within PUBG's playstyle, it seems the better choice between hold and toggle.  It's mostly annoying when you get a game like EYE and holding down right mouse repeatedly toggles it on and off.

 

That said, I don't play pubg, have no intention of playing it, and in general would rather not play it, so take that all with a grain of salt.

 

More music.

Yea it's one of my pet hates. There are some autokey scripts that can essentially reverse the input... trouble is that ADS is terrible for recoil controll. You have much better overall accuracy and recoil controll if you hold right click to aim at close and medium range targets, however you might need to account for the 3rd person view targeting to actually hit your target at close range

Aim Down Sights

 

When you are playing a first person shooter it is what happens when you right click (on a PC) or in most console FPS games left trigger. In most cases it is a click and hold (ADS lasts as long as you hold the button) but it sounds like PUBG only does ADS toggle (click once to go into ADS and it stays until you click again). As a FPS gamer I use click and hold because I can't stand toggle. Same as Avalon. Mainly because I find toggle incredibly clunky.

A few months ago... watched Cowboy Bebop for the first time.  I've also reverted most of my nicknames in other places back to this one, makes it easier for me and friends at least when playing games.

 

Yea, click and hold ADS is extremely awkward to use in fast paced games, which although 90% of the time, PUBG is anything but fast paced, there are a few moments where it counts.

 

Generally I would say that non ADS aiming is better in that game for using automatic weapons (just hold right click), generally there is less recoil when not in ADS, especially so on the pistols, where you can rapid fire in the same spot quite easily with over the shoulder aim, but in ADS only your first shot will actually hit where you are aiming in till the recoil animation finishes.

 

Your gun is no less accurate in over the shoulder aim than using ADS. The only time you actually want to aim down sight is when peeking a corner, or using a magnified weapon sight, or the range is far enough away that it doesn't matter what you use.

That occurred _one hour_ after I went to bed. Dangit.

 

Oh well, at least it's available for viewing so I didn't completely miss out.

I actually prefer toggle ADS on right mouse, but that's likely due to the layout of my trackball. The ball is in the middle with the left/right/middle mouse buttons under my thumb, and thus I can't hold down right mouse while also using left mouse. That was a massive pain when playing through Ghostbusters the Video Game with mouse+kb since I couldn't find a spot to remap the button. Where I can remap ADS and it's hold to use, I tend to stick it in mouse 4, which is with mouse 5 on the opposite side of the ball from the first three.

I'd love to see how they'll get something like a Land Raider to work. It would be horrifying if they somehow put a Baneblade in since those things are for hunting Titans.

 ​It was first presented in 1531 so yes. 61 years before Doctor Faustus.

People called the tier 9 T34 an abomination.  I guess I just really knew how to make abominations sing.  Both of those tanks have one thing in common:  they really shine when you employ them in the roll of "Hammer" to some other tank's "Anvil."  And knowing how to get around the map and attack from unexpected angles was a core requirement for playing it well.

 

My experiences on the tank are what allowed me to be so stupidly good on the T34 back when everyone thought it was a garbage tank, and those expectations made it especially easy to punish people for ignoring it so casually.  I carried many a game in that tank, oh how I miss that beast.

 

Don't get me wrong, the T23's gun was an abomination against common decency of tank balance, but I still have fond memories simply piloting it.  It was a Ferrari amongst commoner tanks, and if you knew how to draw out its strengths, it truly was a beauty to behold.

 

Actually, my T23 stats still persist in my M26 stats, which I never played in.  I did pretty well for playing mostly solo at an early time in my WoT career, at 56% win rate and 1335 damage per battle.  It was definitely underpowered but I would have taken upgunning the T23 instead of dropping the M26 on it.  The T23 was just that fun to drive.  Well, before physics confused driving.

 

Those people were baddies.  If you knew what you were doing, you could easily rip apart one of the most feared tanks of the time: the IS-4.  I would rather have kept the old T34 than the M103.  After they did the swap, I played a few battles in it and sold it.  Same with the T-10.  It was so disappointing compared to the old IS-4 that I just didn't want to keep it.  Now I kind of regret that after the buffs.

Certain variants of the Baneblade are for anti-Titan usage
