    I don't mind the update. Just make some agility customization for people who wants less ship agility and it will be fine.

    That is an excellent solution to this problem. I had a match today where I had auto-drive on, and an enemy at 9 O'clock, the boat decided to spin 270 degrees clockwise to get to that enemy. My opinion after 3 days of the Max Agility Event still seems to hold:

    Surely, it would be better to have 2 sliders in options & let players select how much rudder & agility they want. Just forcing everyone to have to re-learn how to control their ships is ridiculous.

    Personally I love it, but I can see why folks want it turned down a touch.

    max agility itself doesn't bother me but with max agility it is harder to hit a target with something that has a low radius like cannons ,so players will use more mortars and that is what I hate ,I was about to leave battle bay couple of times because of mortar spamming before.

    Not even being dramatic. The movement is giving me motion sickness. It's too much. Why did you guys do that??? So many complained about it on the event. Only thing im happy about is maybe I can actually get some shields and turbos I been waiting all year for. But can't because all I got was rudders and gear lubes.

    That's not even factoring that everyone is diverted to the announcement thread to point out their views.

    I just changed my vote to YES. Once you have familiarize the control, the play feel better for these 3 reason:
    1. Its easier to make left/right turn on your boat
    2. Its easier to dodge torp.
    3. Faster U turn.

    I'm not gonna lie, I'm not loving it. I already had max agility before the update, so I'm pretty much fully prepared to pilot my own ship, but it's lost about 50% of its value now that everyone else is also super agile. My speeder, which originally used a rudder, has had its playstyle nerfed into oblivion, everything I learned about abusing enemy blind spots and dodging their shots has gone down the drain. My favorite part of the game was basically removed, half the excitement was being one of the few with high agility and being a nuisance to those without it. Now there's no escaping the clutches of extreme turret agility, my speeder's fear of gear lubes has been imprinted on every ship on the bay. It feels so uncomfortable after months upon months of experience. What's going to happen to close range battles? How will speeders hold up? My enforcer now shows significantly better results, despite having plenty inactive talents for it, so I can just forget about my agile speeder days, but for the sake of every other speeder, buff their speed or something, give them shorter GCD when using mobility items, or nerf turret agility. Anyone else that plays speeder should be able to relate, a large portion of our strats and techniques have been rendered useless, or at least tripled their risk factor.
