I love the AK-47, it was the highest damage output auto in the game and took more time than any other to master... I became quite proficient with it in most circumstances, not many things match the satisfaction of 1 shotting a CT Awper all the way from T side long A on d2.

Re: Jimmy Whisenhunt AMA


What would you say are the mechanics that lower the skill ceiling in FPS games? What would you do to adjust or correct those mechanics?

I HATE being patted on the back for doing next to nothing in games.

If I choose to run around holding 'w' and 'mouse1' I am rewarded by mowing down an entire army and some ludicrous XP bonus in my face with crazy sounds and praises... Sure you can play that way if you want, and you should be able to kill a few people. HOWEVER, I believe playing a more intelligent way should be more beneficial as an individual player, this includes better bursting, recoil control and movement and rewards situational awareness.

As of right now the Zowie EC1 is the best damn mouse I've used in years, the only mouse that came close in the last couple of years is the SteelSeries Xai... But the Xai broke on me a few times.

Concerning ADS, yes... I can answer this a few ways, but in the end it just has to compliment the rest of the mechanics involved in the gun play of the game.

I'm just happy to see a developer finally stand up for the Terran Republic. It's an honor to have you on board, sir! o7

For my question: What's your favorite part about destroying rebel and zealot scum?

Re: Jimmy Whisenhunt AMA


In some of the videos I notice the rifle being re-racked after each reload, regardless if their was still a round in the chamber or not. If there are still bullets/rounds in the weapon, should we not just replace the magazine?

Is this being addressed or would you prefer it stay as the videos demonstrate?

Or has this been discussed and I am simply not aware?

Thank you.

PS: I am glad you are with the SOE team.

Trying to out match my previous bullet induced backflip record!

Iv found the Xai to have issues sometimes tracking on the flouro on my razer mouse pad....could just be the razer mouse pad been as shit as their mouses though.

My Xai worked best on my Heaton Qpad (plastic), SteelSeries 9HD (plastic) and my Steelseries QCK+ (cloth) hope this helps!

Hi whisenhunt, Glad SOE has taken someone on with a solid FPS background.

Do you think planetside 2 will have a future in the Esports?

Thanks, might try one of those if this CM storm spawn mouse goes to shit, not really feeling the more palming style mouses anymore.

I look at it like this, one step at a time.

I think anything is possible... But as we've learned in the past, you never want to force something into esports. (CGS)
