I can't tell if you're being condescending or asking seemingly pointless questions. So I'll answer as if you were asking in both ways.

Pointless: I know the basic mechanics of boost steal but I do not have the range memorized..though could look at it on forums or code.
Condescending: You do not need to have the range memorized, to be considered qualified, on knowing the basic mechanics of boost steal. This is something you can acquire from skating (or even watching). Which I have done a bunch of :D So I can safely say I have a good grasp on the range without knowing the exact number.

Pointless: I do not know how long the FF lasts. And I can guess (not tell you) the duration in seconds. Or could look on forums.
Condescending: Once again, knowing the duration in seconds does not help me get a feel for the basic mechanics of it...I do not count after I hit the button. It's fine if you do it this way, but I do not.

I don't want to call you out on horrible logic.."Because you don't know the exact lengths or ranges of abilities, you don't know the basic mechanics"..I'll give you more credit than that and assume you were just curious if I knew. In which case, I have to ask, what was the point of the questions in relation to what you quoted me on?

So you have no clue how the mechanics work, yet assert you are the expert on them and demand they are changed to meet your whims.
I figured it'd be the condescending one.

Did you not read anything I wrote or did your mind explode when you couldn't figure out how to respond to it????? Now we are talking about a very simple point -> The fact that you think, me not knowing the exact numbers for the abilities, implies I don't know the mechanics... This is absurd! A comparison would be...shaming Tom Brady because he doesn't know the physics or maths of calculating gyroscopic torque. Tom Brady knows how to throw a football. He doesn't know the formula, the numbers, and probably not even gravitational acceleration is 9.8 m/s^s. But you can say Tom Brady is an expert at throwing a football. If something is wrong with his football, he's going to know it without knowing any of these numbers. I don't get why I have to explain this to you.

I want boost steal for skaters GONE. I think it detracts from the game personally. If you don't like that, I already know it, so save me some time and delete whatever you're writing right now.

goalies that dont know this are definetly worse. I bet SilentFate doesn't know this and I do, I'm obviously a better goalie.

We all know that to be able to boost steal you have to time it properly and aim your zealot in the proper direction. The problem is that the radius of the boost steal is large asf.

The problem is that it's random af except if you study boost steal timing atleast 6hours per day during one month, just like elder and that it won't change anything to complain anyways since the only developper that we have atm doesn't give a shit of zh and prefers to create a game called cryoblade which will obviously not work and split the community.
