Now, who is the inventor of Melee Surfing? Positive or ABC? Or Shadow 3.84 and Portia doesn't qualified as Melee Surfing yet since it only avoid the HOT angle? » Nat | Talk » 04:31, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, I once earlier tried to fit a primitive HOT-Melee-Surfing into a Micro/Mini. I can't remember exactly what happened with it except that I didn't seem worthy of release. I'm not sure if I could truely call it surfing. In any case, I'd say that the idea of HOT-Melee-Surfing has been around for a long time before we had useful implementations like in Shadow 3.84 or Portia. Due to that, I couldn't really call either the inventor, I'd call the wiki-collective as a whole, the inventor :) --Rednaxela 05:17, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd call them the first successful melee surfers, but that has nothing to do with collecting stats. Collecting stats isn't what makes wavesurfing wavesurfing --Rednaxela 06:04, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Shadow 3.84 does not collect stats. It does fire enemy waves and surfs them, though. I believe Portia is more of a bullet dodger. From the description and debug graphics I presume it fires HOT and linear enemy bullets and dodges them. Anyway, melee wavesurfing did not need to be invented, it's a natural evolution from 1on1 wavesurfing. It's just that it hadn't been made to work good enough until now. And, even now, Shadow's "traditional" movement is still 1% APS better. And I estimate Portia's movement is around HawOnFire's level, an amazingly good micro melee movement... --ABC 10:56, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

- I wrote it down as I've done before. I'm not sure if I wrote it correctly.
- If Neuromancer's method is different can somebody write it too?
