So I picked up a HRAP EX-SE used, and I love it. Only problem is, I main Gief, and I just don’t like the square gate. I did give it some time, but I just don’t think it’s for me. So played it without a gate for a while, and was loving it, but I saw that the metal mounting plate (which was now the “round gate”) was chewing up the actuator, so I stopped doing that, and ordered a proper round gate from Lizardlick (who are awesome, btw). Now SPDs and RBGs are silky smooth again, and my stick is not destroying itself, but I’m having a hard time finding the diagonals at times.
I have read Slagcoin’s great comparison of the various restrictors , and I understand the advantages the square gate has. But let’s assume for the sake of argument that I’m going to ride the gate on circles and half-circles, and that’s just how it’s gonna be. What can I do, if anything, to make the diagonals easier to hit reliably? I’ve considered hollowing out the gate a bit, making the hole a bit larger. I could either do it uniformly, resulting in a bigger circle, or hollow out the diagonals a bit, making a very rounded square, maybe a compromise between square and round gates. Has anyone tried this, or another solution?
