I'm not complaining about old tactics not being useful anymore, I'm complaining about no tactics every being used anymore.
Tactics were created by the minecraft pvp community. If pvp and spam clicking was such an huge issue, why are people just starting to complain about it now? Why weren't they complaining about it two years ago?
Some tactics that are now ruined:
Even IF the fishing rod was supposed to be a joke weapon, it's still incredibly useful to obtain comboes. Now, fishing rods don't deal knockback which makes them useless.
Multiple ways to obtain comboes are useless because you're not damaging the player while they're in the combo.
Honestly, the thing that's going to ruin pvp is the hit delay, and the fact that a diamond hoe does more damage per second than a diamond sword. At least if comboes were still effective, then maybe this update wouldn't be completely stupid.
