Really??? You made it to nearly 2900 rating and you backpedal? Jesus christ. Sigh, hence why games higher than 3v3 games are terrible, too easy to carry bads to high ratings.
Dude, he backpedaled for 3s to position himself for a leap, he never backpedaled in combat.
It's better to use backpedal when you have time before a charge anyway, because you don't need to switch your camera around for such a minor adjustment then.
Btw, those are some nice tank stats you've got going there! What did you augment for exactly if I may ask?
