It's not a simplistic thing to do.  People get good at it, and use it.

 

Whingeing about being killed by it is like whingeing about anything else.

STPrakU and play.  Or RQ.  We don't care.

You must be absolutely JOKING. First, these are adjustments to ruinous Nerfs from over a year ago. Second, that patch included changes to the booster system that absolutely destroyed 2-years of developed gameplay paradigms and permitted extended exploration [Ed's note: Scootgar means exploitation].

It's like pointing to a massive pile of dog turds and saying, "Do you like ether Colour?"

 2 of the same booster is a-ok. You heard it here first from Scootypuff Jr. Or is the dancing shiv exploitative? Oh boy this is a tough one.


Yep.  Perfectly OK.  You heard it, Biodongle, IV

 

What's with the cutesy names, missing 5th grade?


No dude, it's exploitative!!!!!

The shiv dance is worse than molotovs, its cheap. Shiv kills should be for stealth and smokebombs, not a camera exploit. Ive been killed many times by this cheapness even while looking @ someone, who in the hell goes around tapping triangle during a firefight? dumb if you ask me.

It's legit, but boring. Much more fun to use teammates as bait (either intentionally or unintentionally) to run the flank and shiv shiv shiv

because people found out how to use shivs more offensively, it is cheap?

You dont understand, its for stealth attacks, not running up to someone like a machete and spamming triangle even when the person is IN FRONT OF YOU and not even behind you. It should be like Uncharted stealth kills were they have to be offscreen to stealth kill you.

outsmarting the enemy and doing better than him with whatever you're given = skill.

Spamming triangle close quarters hoping you get a good enough angle on someone to do a shiv = no skill. They should reduce the radius of the shiv were you have to be @ a perfect angle behind a person not in front.
