    I'm actually going crazy. Every single time I lj, barring rare cases, my first strafe sync is always terrible. It's not a W-release issue- I get checkmarks very often, and it still occurs. Whatever's causing this is burned into my muscle memory and I'm losing my fucking mind, since nothing I'm trying seems to change the fact that I'm basically guaranteed 65% sync maximum on my first strafe.

    [KZ] Suruga Devil jumped 267.1918 units with a LongJump [5 Strafes | 275.201 Pre | 340 Max | Height 56.7 | 75% Sync | JumpOff Edge 7.643 | CrouchJump: no | -Forward: yes] [240 block]
    #. Sync Gained Lost MaxSpeed AirTime
    1. 47% 10.050 0.000 285.252 18%
    2. 85% 14.246 0.000 299.498 13%
    3. 78% 13.322 0.000 312.821 18%
    4. 76% 11.734 0.000 324.556 17%
    5. 94% 16.286 0.000 340.842 33%
    yeah I know the airtimes are fucked but I did this as just an example okay

    This is nobind, by the way. I'm tilted and angry and fatigued so I couldn't get a good example of this happening at 7-8 strafes, but it's always fucking there. I can get 93%+ on 1 and 2 strafe jumps, but as soon as I try 3 or more, I struggle to get higher than 65% sync on my 1st strafe.

    For some reason, my 2nd strafe usually has exceptionally good sync and gain.

    Please help me understand this. I'm starting to go nuts.

    maybe youre retapping your prestrafe key after you jumped, your first strafe is an extension of your prestrafe so hold it otherwise let go of the first key a bit later or something
    alternatively add giimpy he had problems with 0 sync on first strafe for like a year or so maybe he can help you

    It's definitely not that I'm retapping, though it could be because I'm switching to my 2nd strafe too fast. I'll add him, thank you.

    Will do tomorrow, I'll try to get 120 fps for that sweet sweet slomo

    Checked the demos, found the culprit. By and large, it was caused by dead time between my first and second strafes. I tried fixing this and didn't get good results, but I realized that was just caused by inconsistency- either I'd fuck up the w-release, or I'd have dead time, or I'd overlap. The three together made it almost impossible to get a good first strafe. I thought it was just one thing, but it turns out I'm just going to have to relearn strafing altogether in order to fix this, gonna kms

    Thanks for the help though guys, I appreciate it <3
