Though there was a discussion before, and frankly I don't see the point of reversing it once again. Might as well stick to a decision at some point.
This kinda thinking, is what is wrong with the world
There used to be boost steal. Then we removed it. Then we added it again. Now they want it removed again.
Don't you see a pattern here? Maybe we should focus on other parts of the game. There are two opinions on the subject, the arguments have been previously laid down, a decision has been taken. Now move on.

The best answer to a problem is unrelated to the amount of times people enact on solutions to that problem...............................

I don't understand this. And since it's the basis of your entire point, I need to understand it.

From what I can gather, you are saying that the enemy doesn't immediately have another steal after they steal it from you, so you can steal it right back?

If this is what your saying, GET ON THE ICE, and tell me again after skating a bit. We are not robots who can take into account both player's momentums, know which way to re-steal, know exactly when to click and where, know EXACTLY when the other player clicks, and can instantly re-steal the puck even remotely close to every time.

For example, sometimes if I see my momentum is the same as my enemy's, I won't click and will see if he passes to me, then i can click away before he can click again.

There are tons of different ways to meta as skater with clicks and turns and stops. I'm not sure how you can say it's stale when I rarely see you trying anything different as a skater!

Boost steal takes skill out, period. It prevents players who have higher skill from ending up with the puck after a great click.

I didn't mean that as a insult or put-downer as much as I meant it as....You haven't skated that much.

just remove it, 99% of the time it's ramdom 0,9% of the time it's calculated but still the attacker turn his stick back in case it didnt works, 0,1% of the time it works perfectly.
