    Coming back to kz after a longer pause I have struggled to get good sync on my first strafe and I recently realized that I get no speed at the beginning of my first strafe, even with the Jumpbind. Is that normal or am I doing something wrong with my prestrafe/jumpangle ?
    Here is a video showing what I mean:

    Hey there,

    With the jump being slowed down so much I can't clearly tell what's going on. Your prestrafe looks fine at first sight. You seem to be holding your crouchjump bind quite long which is a bad thing cause you gain less speed while crouched. The print in your chat also shows that your sync on the first strafe was completely off, you only got 21% sync while you should always be close to 100% sync on a first strafe, especially with the longjump bind. Again with the jump being slowed down so much I can't see very well why the sync is so off because it doesn't look like your sync should be that low.
    On another note, the forums are really inactive so if you want help I would strongly suggest you use the HoC discord, or for help with something like longjumping specifically the KZ Climb discord is more helpful. Feel free to tag me there @Ginger#9875 and I'd be happy to try to help you further. :grin:
