Hello,

All people say that its bad to hold the jump key while strafing, and i agree, it feels really bad, and i just can't strafe with it..

But it is a real fact that you lose speed if you hold it? I mean, is it writen in the code somewhere?

Of course! And if you use any other key than SPACE for jumping, your rockets do only 95 damage and you always respawn in front of the enemy in 1v1s.

ehm, striker fred. I don't know.
I heard defrag pros talk about it, too. but I'm not sure its just mysticism.

personally I don't really notice a difference, but I am not a pro player.

maybe RAZ3R knows more?

EDIT: I only find stuff like this (but from pro players):

[- Jumping Tip -]

Do not hold in the jump key, simply tap it. If you hold in the jump key while strafing, you can lose up to 30% of your maximum acceleration.

I have always used the right mouse key for jumping and got used to it very quick since it's responsive to a single click. It was one of the first bits of advice I got.

I thought most players used the right click button

You don't actually lose speed but rather accelerate less. Try holding jump button as long as possible when doing blue pads on trickhouse. You will have huge trouble finishing it. It's best to just tap the button when you're touching the ground.

So it doesnt change the speed, but reduces the acceleration. Thanks ewry

Thanks guys, My jumps are much faster now. I thought you could hold the jump button as long as you want. I'm pretty sure I've seen a wrong tutorial someday.

But anyway, pads are much easier now! :)

Thanks a lot
