MnK Players Spark Division in Community After Claiming Aim Assist is Balanced
Most MnK players have been feeling the aftershocks of a disagreement in the community that has sparked an emotional debate and divided the fan base. After MnK 2019’s major update, some players have been claiming that aim assist in the game is “balanced” for all players.
Aim assist is a feature that enables a controller user to hold down the right trigger and will automatically aim towards an enemy or target onscreen. Not all games feature this feature. Some players feel that aim assist gives controller users too much of an advantage while others argue that it should be considered as balancing the playingfield.
The disagreement between the two opposing sides has grown to a full-fledged debate, with some players claiming that the aim assist feature is too powerful and needs to be tweaked. On the other side, some have argued that controllers will always have an advantage against mouse and keyboard users and that aim assist should be accepted as it is.
Ultimately, the debate has pitted controller users against mouse and keyboard users, demoralized some gamers, and caused some to consider quitting the game altogether.
Each side has been vocal about their opinion, trying to prove their point and defend their stance on the topic. Many have expressed their discontent on forums and social media platforms, while some debates even reach the game chat.
Considering the argument, it’s safe to say that when two sides have such a strong opinion and no consensus can be reached, the community will remain divided for a while.
Although there are those who support the need to adjust the aim assist feature, it’s important to keep in mind that MnK developer has been silent on the matter and it is unlikely that any changes will be made unless they make an official statement.
Until then, players will need to come to a part of agreement and learn to play with the current settings, or look for other solutions that helps reducing the perceived advantage of controller users. Until then, the community will remain divided on the matter.
