Why is it that vq3 is some sort of holy cow?
In pretty much all "real" sports, rules change constantly. The disallowing of goal keepers picking up passes by hand is a huge change in football. Offside has been changed a million times. 3 pointers got added in basketball, and so on and so forth...
But vq3? It might be blatantly hitscan-only, but don't touch it.
