    i'd have to agree tho, toon makes no sense unless your char LOOKS like a cartoon...

    'crap' aside, it does sound just like WoW thinking.

    FOV effect your crosshair?

    I was reading a thread indicating that when you change your FOV it effects your crosshair. Or better yet, effects where your bullets land. I tried this just for laughs and noticed that when I reduced my FOV from 80 to near default settings I noticed that shooting from the hip was a lot more accurate. Using ironsight/scope was about the same.

    I am wondering if this helps explain why I can't hit shit with certain things like the side mounted machine guns on tanks. I'm sure it's not the entire problem :)

    One person tested it and he believes that the bullets fire to the right of the crosshair at higher FOV settings except for the few he mentioned (linked above). I agree with his findings because when I changed it my shooting from the hip accuracy got a lot better.

    That thread made my head spin.

    Can someone write an informative post base on the info on that link?

    I'm using default FOV.

    Maybe you are seeing better aim because smaller FOV brings objects closer ?) Interesting testing none the less.

    What I've noticed that if I play in Norway I hit less than if I play in Sweden. Ping difference is 47 to 31, so that shouldn't affect. So far hit detection hasn't bothered me, thing I noticed from Beta to retail was that engineer guns worked when in Beta they didn't. Sometimes it feel fishy, mostly when I die before the enemy :p
