Boost steal

Post by Gandalf » Sat Apr 01, 2017 8:06 pm

Why are skater boost steals back? The de-evolve this game. Noobs just boost without knowing what they're doing and they have puck after a good re-steal. Instead of learning how to left click....(or in mets' case, ac - Cya next league game you try to play, my bots are hungry).

Take it out or do a poll or something @themusic

Apparently boost steal is "skillful" and a lot of ppl were mad about it being taken out. But I agree, I think it's a very low skill cap ability that results in more lucky steals than anything. It just promotes bad gameplay imo.

I feel like I am having a deja vu :geek:
For the record, I am still not a big fan of boost steal.

5/5 posts so far agree boost steal is bad, but wait until the ZH "god tier" multi masters (not opmm/acmm) irrationally argue its skillfull
