YES or NO

More Information:

I think that there is hardly a Counter-Strike:Source player who thinks the current crouched Point of View (POV) is fair or even correct.

If you do think it is fair and correct, then I feel you would be in the minority.



For those of you who are not familiar with the problem, it can be explained like this:

When you are standing, your POV is as if you are looking out through the model at the same level your eyes would be on the model.

When you are crouched, your POV is as if you are looking out through the model at the same level your CROTCH would be on the model.

See attached pictures if you need visual aids to understand the problem.

This is neither fair nor equitable as standing players will have a clear view of crouching players, but the crouching players have no view of players who can clearly see them.

Quite often this leads to players being shot when they think they are under cover, when in fact, they are not.

The reason this petition is being created, is simply that it has been stated by several sources within Valve that they are not looking at the crouched POV issue whatsoever, and do not even consider it a problem or a bug, and in fact consider it a deliberate design feature.

Obviously I disagree with them, and I think a significant majority of other Counter-Strike:Source players of both public and competitive playing persuasions (you know there is a big problem when you can get both these groups to agree on anything) will agree with me.

Also I have heard the argument made from Valve, is that the movement while crouched looks very bad in first person if you shift the POV to eye level. I would counter that statement by simply saying that most people do not spend an inordinate amount of time moving around the map whilst crouched, AND even if it does have some display issues, these are outweighed by the benefit of being able to clearly see how you are positioned in relation to your surroundings and being able to see other players when they can see you.

So the only way to make Valve aware that we consider this to be a major issue that should be revised considerably and changed, since the overwhelming majority of Counter-Strike:Source players think there is a problem, and what is more, agree on what the solution is, is to get as many YES votes in this petition as possible.

If we get 100,000 signatures all saying YES the crouched POV should be changed, then perhaps Valve will take what we have to say seriously, and not disregard our feelings on this issue.

I know there are other issues that demand Valves attention, but most of them are bugs that will in fact be fixed sooner or later, but this issue will never be fixed as Valve do not agree with us that there is any problem.

Tell all your friends, tell all the Counter-Strike News Sites about this petition, post in all the game forums outside of here to get as many votes as possible.

Vote YES in this petition if you want the Crouched POV changed to the Eye Height of the Model.

Cheers
Whisper
