i don't think they made it deliberately worse so people slowed down typing, rather, it would seem it was setup (as everyone points out) to keep binding up of the strokes, no not perfect. but can't people have their own opinions.
then the problem is your playing the game with people who dont know how to play there character fully. maybe if its something unlock able once you get a 70 character. that you can make one at 60 and level from there
