How do I Side Step
Just bought side step and it doesn't seem to be working.  Do I just double-tap A or D?  I have tried that while sprinting, running, weapon sheathed, etc...  One thing to note is I did change my A and D bindings to Q and E respectively.  I have reverted back and tried as well, but no such luck.  Any help is much appreciated!

I had to re-log to finally get this to work.  FYI for anyone having this issue.

Is side step any good? I heard double jump is the one to get.

Depends on what your doing.  A tank with side step is pretty hard to kill if, being annoying and a distraction is what your going for.

No no. It's bad. That's why it cost less. No one should choose it.

Side step has to become as responsive as it is in Unreal Tournament to become usefull.

When sprinting behind someone trying to melee of they are out of range you can side step forward to get into melee range. That is super usefull!

Meleeing a mob side step backwards to open up space, spin 180 and run away to heal. You are outside melee range.

1)Yes. Sticky back with side-step much more easier
2)If timed correctly - you can hit mobs without damage in melee just sidestepping their attacks backwards
3)You have to use some kind of AHK macro to side-step faster, because that double pressing thing is shit in combat and removes any pros of side-step

Side step is reactive enough the controls are bad, need to use AHK script.

In case people don't have one, I made one while experimenting with it:

I have "T" for FORWARDkey, and I press "A" to get the macro simulate the double tap of FORWARD. It is useable while pressing FORWARD to chase people/mobs, so you don't need a short break to double tap.

;Leap forward
a::
{
SendInput, {t down}
Sleep, 1
SendInput, {t up}
Sleep, 5
SendInput, {t down}
Sleep, 1
SendInput, {t up}
SendInput, {t down}
}

I didn't try it in duels yet, because I'm not a melee pusher, but have tested in mobs, and it makes farming with daggers much easier when mobs with same speed try to run away. You can get back to reach with daggers in one leap (40 ping) on same speed mobs as you, unless you sleep over when they try to escape.

@Ub3rgames When do we get fix for this. Using AHK scripts should not give you advantages in game over people using in-game controls.

I suggest using AHK to bind a mouse key to double tap W, can really help catching people in stickies.

If you want to go even harder, make a AHK script to double tap in the direction your strafing, that requires a bit more though.

I feel sorry for Jack he probably would log in and enjoy the game more if he didn't have you for a retarded friend and didn't ruin his ties with Epoch.

I tried using mouse macro a while ago but it often makes the character stop dead after leaping, mostly an issue when pressing multiple inputs. I wish this could just be an ability like WW etc.
