PlatypusI always thought just "counting" APM was stupid. It's more like 2 actions being done repeatedly, he's just spamming them. If he was conciously thinking about which strafe key to press and for precisely how long, then they would be separate actions.
Even then ~16 key presses per second are surely impressive
That movement got him a ban on etf2l (Apparently it was ~1000apm and the ac team thought that was inhuman). He contested the ban and won but having that kind of parkinson movement could get you in trouble 8)
DavidTheWinBecause it reduces pretty much all motion blur in the game. Let me put it this way, 120hz is noticeably better than 60hz, but 120hz with lightboost is still noticeably better than 120hz. It's something you really have to see to understand, but imagine no blurring at all on your monitor.
I used to use lightboost for ~2weeks I just can't deal with the bad colors and the monitor being basically black
