Do I have to say it again... Boost steal is not random, there's a specific range to pull off (similar to ppl figuring out the left click steal range).

Complaining about the fact you cannot rely on only your left click strength makes my head hurt.

FYI boost range was massively nerfed years ago because a certain fella kept abusing the range not many people knew about ^>^

By ramdom i means, the way how player use it and how hard it is to get the timing, the only guy i saw using it properly is lingking but i still doubt about this.
For most of the time it's purely ramdom, since the guy that lost the puck thought he had it, then decide to use boost, then OH he got the puck back.. waow so skill.

I absolutely agree with Slide. Boost resteals are at least 90% luck and certainly not intended. Somehow the overwhelming majority of boost resteals come from people that obviously never intended to boost resteal. Evident due to the fact that when you are in a click battle with them, they will just panic and boost in a random direction. Most of the time they boost to nowhere without getting the puck, but every now and then they end up boost restealing (still in a useless position)...
