Fan (sometimes called "brooming"): attacking on sides(right-left-right-left) without rotating. Most popular amongst staffers and yellow style uesrs. There's also diagonal version of it, in which instead of moving sides u do diagonal left and than diagonal right attacking. That's why staffers are often called 'fanners'.

FPS: Frames Per Second - the speed of refreshing the screen. Human eye can see around 28 frames each second and so if the computer refreshes slower we may see the screen "framing" - the fluency of action is not correct. To boost FPS try lowering your graphics to give computer less work to do. (See: Commands Guide)
