    Hi there!
    So I've seen this only once in a post before, and I don't quite understand why some people do this...
    He casted EntityDamageByEntityEvent when it was already an EntityDamageByEntityEvent. I know he explained later that it was to diffrentiate between natural and unnatural lightning strikes, but how does casting solve that problem? I'd like to understand this, and hopefully it'll make me a better programmer.
    Thanks in advance!

    @Side8StarLite There is no need at all to cast when the target and source are the same type already.

    But why did he do it then? Is it considered outdated to use this method?

    @Side8StarLite I don't know why he did it, but he did some things that he shouldn't do.
