    I know this probably sounds like a strange thread but I'm interested to see whether you guys use the classic "double tap W" or if you hold the "Ctrl" instead. Tell me what you use in the comments and what you find you get your best time with. Any responses are helpful! :D

    Is the default sprint button Ctrl?! Idek, I changed it to 'q' as soon as this feature was released xP so what i do is hold 'q' and 'w' unless I need to strafe left, then I hold 'q' and 'a' ^-^ and also, I use 'f' for F5 mode. This was very useful during my splegg run, but it's sometimes useful for DeathRun as well, to quickly change your perspective to see if any runner, or more importantly, any death is behind you cx

    Cheers man, I took over a year off playing minecraft meaning I was unfamiliar with the new update so had no idea there was actually a sprint button. This should help me get rid of those annpying sprint glitches I keep having

    I use "E" for sprinting because it's really easy to tap next to W. I use "I" for inventory because that's what it was in Minecraft Alpha and I hated when they changed it, so I changed it back instantly :p I'm also not a big PVPer so accessing my inventory isn't a very common thing for me

    I changed zoom to 'v' xP ctrl is just way too far away when you're trying to worry bout deaths and parkour

    I use shift for running, but other than that everything's pretty normal.

    I've been thinking about making a DeathRun challenge video. One of the challenges would be to get first by only using the mouse. LMB to walk and run (double-click) MMB to jump and RMB for strafes. I'll post it whenever I get it done ^^ You can try it yourself, too though.

    I used to double tap W for sprint, but I switched to holding ctrl awhile ago and it is great. :D

    F is my sprint, it's easily accessable, and fits really well. R is my F5, which is traight above F.

    I use the default CTRL for zooming.
