Im not at home to test this release but with the releases the last days I got the feeling that the aim assist is gone.

Before the whole chaos aiming was no problem but with all the betas it seems that the aim assist doesnt work anymore. Is there somebody with the same feeling ?

when your wasd movements get closer to those of an analog stick your inputs work more in favour of the aim assist
(the aim assist is programmed for analostick movement with analogstick aim, not for keyboard movements with a mouse)
this means that the aim assist will feel less like an obstacle
when an aim assist works like intended you are less likely notice its existance, the aim assist is still there but the new xim movement pattern for fortnite makes it less percetpible

Youíve probably been in your settings using the keyboard. With the drift, it moves the sliders as you pass over the options, so chances are youíve turned Aim Assist off there.

What are the changes from beta to beta?
Is it just wasd movement finetuning for less drift but still being undetectable?

I normally don't talk about it as to taint the person trying it, but, I'm taking a different approach to this one and I'm looking forward to feedback on it.

Just tested out the movement in play ground, when pressing w and s quickly its switches left and right more in the menu, the drift seems to be stronger now, especially if you do a 360 degree turn while moving forward your character will either be yanked to the right or the left when holding the sprint, even then turning on jumps

yeah this honestly feels pretty horrible to me.

strong drift when holding W

using sprint by default also has an issue where if im only holding W, and then add D to the mix my guy will stop sprinting and walk slowly for a brief second before returning to sprinting.

also just diagonal movements in general seem to have awkward and strong drifts/movements in wrong directions. as the poster above said when turning the drifts are very noticeable

build battles are feeling super awkward.

God epic is annoying.

I have to join my previous speakers.
Unfortunately not playable and exactly the same control problems.

I'm back to 1016 for the time being.

As I read all these posts I will not update it to 17,because as you are saying 17 has bigger movement problems!

There are rumors going around that Fortnite and Xbox will permanently ban your account for using a xim apex as it is against TOS. Is this true or has anyone else heard about this or been banned yet? I would hate to have to go back to controller, but Iíd also hate to lose my account.

1016 works fine for me also btw. Still has a little drift in the movement.  But isnít terrible.

Thanks for all the work you guys do

I like this one for now, its like playing with controler, you cannot move with joystic like
with keyboard... its more realistic to controler you have to get just to it ... aim assis works good... no kiks out

I haven't seen anyone being banned for using a xim or any adapter that allows you to use a mouse and keyboard. I think the rumors are false. I could be wrong but I don't see game developers banning people using this device.

Disregard, the flash appears to have taken that time.
