Day 75 Conduit 2 Map Detail Analysis: The Mud Spot in Crash Site

#1_SignalPosted 3/6/2014 6:03:17 PM
There is a spot near the speed control point In crash site that frequently slows me down. It's on the incline going down to the SCP. If you're at the SCP facing the rocket engines, it would be on the left side.

Frequently when I walk through it, my pace slows to a crawl and I seem to be barely moving.

It even looks muddy, or maybe it looks burned. Or maybe it's burned mud, and that's what makes it sticky.

The weird thing is that I don't think it slows me down every time, but it's definitely happened more than once.

One time I was playing against AISP, and I got stuck in it and couldn't move.

Tell me what you think about The Mud Spot. Has the same thing happened to you? Have you encountered The Mud Spot on other maps? Does The Mud Spot make the game more challenging when you run into it?
Even my signature is off-topic!

Dunno, I don't trust that spot. X3 But it makes sense.

Yes, I am familiar with the Mud Spot. I think AISP moves with great agility because I have neve seen him stuck.

Not sure if glitch or intentional.

I remember when AISP used to make a thread each time he got a RoT. Fun times.
A dangerous foe, if a somewhat disinterested ally.

I always thought it was a glitch. I called it "crouch-sprint." I guess it would make a little sense for it to be intentional, but I don't really think HVS would make the effort to do something as minor as that. I don't know.

Yeah, I suppose.
No more Nintendo WFC, no more SOTD!

I just experienced that spot twice and I thought I was crouching by accident, because it sure felt slow.

I definitely recall there being instances when I've been drastically slowed down on crash site, though I never attributed it to much.

I can however think of two instances where I seemed to suffer prolonged slow movement on that map. One of which I am sure began in the the area described.
Nite might remember that one.
