The majority of discussions reveal that users are thrilled with the prospect and state “I hope it gets removed” and “Good riddance”.
As the original post explains, most players see the Slide Cancel as something that creates an unfair advantage.
At the end of the day, players hope that the developers will find the right balance regarding the Slide Cancel as one player says:“I don’t want it to be completely removed, but I think it needs a nerf. It can get completely ridiculous at times.”
