    legit farcast thread

    without using that copy/paste'd block of text on how to fc, anyone have any real experience with it?

    i just smash my keys really fast and switch between LF and CS but that only FC's like once in 30 seconds

    is there actually a rhythm or am i just not going fast enough

    i get a lock with LF, hold shift, and just do SDSDSDSDSDSDSDSDSDSDSD, but the success rate isn't really high

    help plox

    Re: legit farcast thread

    that's not very consistent though

    i'm just looking for some insight on how some people do it so consistently

    wanna know if they just smash it really fast or do they really have a timing

    It's really hard if not impossible to do it consistently. If you see someone far casting consistently on a moving target hes using a cheat, not doing it legitly.

    Re: legit farcast thread

    There are probably very few consistent and legit farcasters out there, legit farcast sure is possible though.

    Even though it's obvious let me say it anyway: don't post anything stupid people, rules clearly state what can and cannot be posted in threads like these :wink3:

    We mean legit as without using 3rd party programs. This isn't a gm/bm debate.

    @Xombie - I believe it's only a matter of practice.

    Re: legit farcast thread

    Pretty consistent farcast is getting one in three to work... I struggle with getting farcast to fire from a namelock, I can only really do it consistently with a mouse hover then click. Then again, I play a zon fairly rarely, so it could be a matter of practice. It is almost certainly a rhythm which is needed though. The rhythm will vary with your ping however, so it might not be the easiest thing possible.

    Re: legit farcast thread

    For some reason, I can only farcast on namelock if they are off screen or when we have a wall between us.

    Re: legit farcast thread

    There is no way really to do it constantly without a 3rd party program.. you can switch between throw + cs and get lucky sometimes, but when duelling its hard to do it many times in a row.. I've done it like 4 times in a row, but thats vs hammerdins, and its like 5-10 sec between them. So try to play without, its not worth it to be called fc crap etc, since they wont know that you do it without 3rd party program.

    You cant do it if you dont have the person in namelock, there is no way to do that without a 3rd party program!

    Can barbs double swing/throw farcast? This could be interesting when using lacerators.

    Just tested using frenzy so that I would see when I hit, and it doesn't appear to work. However this is my first time trying this farcast stuff so it could just be that I suck.

    Re: legit farcast thread

    Von Lazuli hit the nail on the head. It's really freakin hard to fc with any sort of consistency - i haven't done it in quite a long time but when i did use to practice it I would be excited if i got two in a row - definitely never got more than that.

    From what I remember it's definitely a timing thing, but as Von Lazuli says since it also depends on your connection speed, which can vary, it's something that realistically can never be done consistently without a 3pp.

    my $0.02......

    i wouldn't even bother learning to FC legitly.

    as soon as you actually pull it off, peeps will accuse you of hacking and sorb the crap out of you.

    in my time playing D2, i have encountered ONE keyboard-shuffling fc zon. ONE. he was reasonably consistent and made for a pretty good duel (once he'd convinced me he wasn't hacking). however, he was promptly sorbed unto oblivion by pretty much everyone else in the game as soon as they saw an FC go off.
