The latest Mac version is perfect. No kicks, could you please put out a 17 Mac version?

You saved us, man! Incredible being able to play again. Thanks a ton.

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 ?

I can of course, I'd just like some feedback first on it.

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

You’ve probably been in your settings using the keyboard. With the drift, it moves the sliders as you pass over the options, so chances are you’ve 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!
