I always backpeddle when I score in Huttball, sort of moon walking then start the dance, so the S key is frequently used on my keyboard.

Audaukin, one of the best Warlock's in the history of World of Warcraft, backpedaled during the 2012 BWC 3v3 arena competition. This is SWTOR but it makes no difference.

When you alternate hitting A and D really quickly, you accomplish nothing except indicating to me your having a seizure. ADADADADADADA......I see people do this all the time, but yet its not beneficial at all. Trying strafing around your opponent in a circle or something.

I wouldn't say "useless". While circle strafing is usually more beneficial, doing ADADADADA can make it harder to see physical animation indicators for those people who have crappy computers. Rapidly sidestepping can blur animations that are usable on the move, or hide what aura/buff you might use, possibly delaying an opponents counter.

A high rating just means that your team isnt good enough to make everyone els quit.

There is nothing wrong with backpedaling if it's situational and done rarely.

Most of the time it is far better to turn around with your mouse, and if you're good at mouse turning takes a split second. However, there are times when I backpedal for a step or two, and I honestly don't care if anyone says anything about it -- my performance in warzones usually shows I'm not a total newb. And though you may see me backpedal if you really pay attention, it happens about 1% of the time.

For example, if you are trying to overload/knockback a few people, but you need only a meter or two of room -- you can turn 180, make a couple of steps, turn another 180 and hope they are still where they were when you wanted to overload... or you could backpedal a step or two and knock back everyone and save a split second doing so.

There are spots that are in very tight quarters and backpedaling can create less confusion. For example, fighting inside a bunker on Novare Coast. You can backpedal a step or two, or you can turn around 180, and in the process make your camera zoom all the way in since it's now hitting the inside wall. Your entire screen can now be covered in particle effects happening inside the bunker, and you are causing yourself harm by actually doing that. I prefer to backpedal a step or two and keep my camera point of view coming from outside of the bunker.

Backpedaling is in no way good, but good players will do whatever they need to do in order to win, and using the evil S key for a step or two saves time in certain situations.

In the end, learn to mouse turn, but pay no attention to an elitist rant that deals in absolutes. Do whatever makes you win.

Well anyone good already has a computer that isn't so ****** ADADADADAD works on them.
