The clear command will flush the input buffer. This can be done while
lagged although will not remove any incurred lag in the process. Useful if
for example you type in dirt sixty times by accident. A little lag will be
incurred for use, my expectation is this is not going to bother anybody.

I'm not on board. this just teaches that spamming is good. it shouldn't be encouraged. players should be taught that one command at a time is the way to go, not that spamming is fine because you can just clear it off... how far ahead does this clear. if I dirt dude, dirt dude. and right as the first dirt goes off I hit clear. the second one is interrupted? because I don't agree with that if it does.

The command itself has its own lag so it remains sub-optimal for vets to use it at all, but this definitely helps new players.

In all honesty I would like to reduce/remove the lag as I know I'd use it for myself for PK'ing reasons. I get it that spamming in can be called a dumb mistake that kills you for being careless (especially because of triggers) but thats really just words. Actions speak louder than words, and all the "oops sanc dropped I died" logs speak a lot to what kind of game we've created by following that dogma. But I added hefty lag on it so that there is a possible improvement down the road, instead of being a thing that ends up taken away for being too good. Just remember when you are considering it later on, its just as useful for the predator as it is for the prey

It's about a 2-round lag, same as a lot of abilities. Instead of a redundant bash, throw in that CLEAR, receive the same lag, line up the next shot. We'll see what happens in practicality, but I like the option.

Can we get rid of sanc to even the playing field?

I like this change. I have pets, and sometimes my cat likes to spam things in for me when stepping on the key board.

Tayyah. You pick up 2 rounds of lag from the moment you typed clear. It doesnt entirely erase the accident. I could make it add 2 rounds to the total remaining lag as well, but it didnt feel like the right thing to do because your 2 dirts example would be exactly unaffected.
