I know I was one of the big supporters of silent, but I'm having a really tough time adjusting. The first day I was fine, better in fact than I was on pub. But every time after that has been a struggle for me. I can't seem to aim well - I've adjusted my m_pitch and m_yaw, I've changed my fov, I've increased the size of my crosshair, I've changed my fps, etc. My overall accuracy is still normal, but I can't get headshots, it takes an entire clip or more to get a kill, I take a lot more damage, and I'm dying more often.
It also feels like I'm moving a lot slower, especially lateral movement. It feels like when I do my side to side strafe dance to avoid damage, I'm moving so little, it's as if I'm standing still.
Now, as I've said in other threads, from my other experiences with silent, I like it better, and I had none of these issues before. I'm not sure exactly what the problem is. I do go through slumps every so often, so perhaps the most likely thing is that I'm slumping, and it just happens to coincide with the silent change.
I'll keep trying, but I'm pretty frustrated. I'm not trying to get anything changed, just letting you guys know how I feel.
