Dragging was one of, if not my favorite part of MW. High skill ceiling, difficult to master, and so flexible. But now dragging is worthless. Absolutely worthless. With DW’s stupid speeds you can sprint out of anything. Matrixing is also worthless now. The entire combat system in DW revolves around footwork. So the only thing you can do is use footwork (sprint everywhere) to make your enemy miss and then hit them during recovery.
Feints are also stupid now. Feints in MW were annoying, but you COULD learn to read them It takes a LONG time, but you can learn to read feints, which is extremely rewarding. Because everything is so fucking fast in DW, including weapons, feints are impossible to read. Impossible.
I’m done ranting.
I agree with everything you have said. I was trying to play CDW like CMW but got my ass handed to me everytime. All you need to do to be succesful in CDW is Sprint around your opponent whilst spamming lmb. I am going to give the beta the benefit of the doubt and wait untill full release, but i am guessing i will be returning to CMW.
This is exactly what I encountered. Tried to play it like CMW and ending up getting decimated. Then I did the constant sprint around your enemy while spamming LMB tactic and I ended up getting around top place. The game is just so shitty it’s insane. If TB’s intention was to replace drags/delays with this, well….I don’t think I’ll ever buy a game from them again.
