It's really interesting to see how much the opinions differ between EU and NA about boost steal. I have yet to meet anyone on EU tell me boost steal is a positive mechanic to have in the game

That kinda means - All of EU = no boost steal. Some NA = No boost steal, Some NA= Yes boost steal.

But after reading that there is going to be an enhancement for boost steal (visual or smth?) I guess I'll wait for it even though I don't think it will change anything (if it's merely a visual effect), people will keep panic boosting without knowing what they do and get luck steals

Maybe its just me and I started playing the game with boost steal, but boost steal used to be great when I first started and when they got rid of it, I had to get used to clicking when boosting (had a lot of boosts to steal and just going right past people) but now that it's back, it's just confusing. Should just get rid of it and never bring it back so peoples mechanics don't get all wonky with a subtle change.

Nobody is getting paid, and it takes a lot of time and effort to be constantly developing a game AND help manage league (themusic is vice commish for NA league). Themusic has spent the last 2 years or so developing ZH on his own time. Players these days don't remember when it was just Leeroy and Reputed, and game-breaking bugs would take a month to fix. There is a LOT of shit that goes on under the hood that goes unnoticed. Does anyone remember when 1 player lagging would cause other players to lag? Xapos effect? Remember when the game was nearly unplayable on off-servers? There was not only delay, but also rubberbanding and stutters. Crush tried to combat the lag issues in ZH, but never truly fixed them. There are tons of other little bug fixes and polish that themusic and other devs contributed to.. so please stop taking the devs' hard work for granted and spiting them for shifting their focus to other things.

Wouldn't it be a good time to use your mod powers to delete these kinds of post? I think no1 would bring up the "expressing your opinion" argument when it's about attacking the devs. I've seen a lot less cancerous posts being deleted.
