Cooldown on Right and Left Click

Post by Sly » Wed Feb 15, 2017 8:35 pm

I propose to the community and the developers that a cooldown be added on right and left click of approximately the fastest speed anyone can click manually with a normal posture. This would render AC useless and probably provide for more interesting and balanced gameplay in general. If anyone used an outside program to bypass the detection and the cooldown, it would be clearly noticeable on replay. I think the slight change in gameplay would be more than worth it for the assurance that cheating has been virtually eliminated.

Thoughts?

I think if you spam more than x times over y seconds you should drop your stick

There's already cool-downs for every command except right-click.

Left click has no (or a significantly reduced) cooldown under certain circumstances. Compare spamming left click before faceoff to spamming the puck against the boards - very different frequency of clicks

I would love to see a change like this get implemented, as mindless (and often ping-reliant) spam has really taken over the meta.

Maybe we can try some stuff. Currently your left click cooldown is reset the moment you lose possession, which is how you can spam the wall and insta-resteal. So maybe when you lose possession theres a 1/16th of a second cooldown.

For the move command we should be able to set the same 1/16th of a second cooldown on it.

Would have to be tested though.. i can see stuff happening like right clicking really fast and then a move command not being registered or something weird.. like if you hit a latency issue and multiple move commands register at once, your "latest" move command could be ignored or something.

If more people are interested it could be a cool thing to test.

Do not implement this mid-season (obviously) as it is would be a huge meta change, but I do support this change for left click. I do not support a right click cool down that sounds dumb.

It would only sound dumb to someone who abuses it. I'd like to start my formal investigation.

There's no need NOT to take out unlimited right clicking power. Find out what Mets clicks at, and cap it there.

Definitely agree with limiting left-click spam in some way, either with a cooldown or having the zealots drop their stick. Limiting right-click would be OK if the cooldown isn't too much, because it could really limit what you can do. So, basically keep right-click at whatever is physically possible.
