Thread: New way to travel

  1. #1

    New way to travel

    How bout we make it really easy for people to travel by giving almost every prof a meep nano?
    What? They already did that? okay, well...

    How bout we let everyone fly like MP's, free of charge!
    Oh. Well...

    How bout we implement a system where all you have to do is tap a spot on a map and you are instantly teleported to that precise location, free of charge!

    In fact, why not just make the game so easy, an unborn fetus can go anywhere and do anything with almost no challenge at all!

    Oh yes, cause letting people fly is just a total degradation of the gameplay.

    So you are saying all the flight based gameplay has been ruined because of jet packs?

    I think that FC is ridding AO of challenge. Before all the easy-mode travel, it used to be dangerous (and lengthy) for low levels to traverse certain areas of the map. Now anyone can get anywhere, and there's no challenge. FC is making AO easier (easier as in less dangerous, and easier as in less complicated) and I'm not a happy panda.

    The changes to BS, being able to teleport anywhere from decon, are the same way. There's no challenge now. *BAM* all my team are in core right at the start of the round, and we have already established a foothold. We've won. There's no more mad dashing to the core with only the fastest surviving.

    FC is failing monumentally in my holobook.

    MPs don't use a jetpack to fly, therefore using a jetpack is not flying like an MP.

    The stance is the same. It's confusing. People will get harassed by multiple "ci/cm plx" requests. For the love of god(s), think of teh people... Oh, wait...

    I hardly see it as a slap in the face. Because the animation is the same it's an encouragement into the special aspects of MPs? I thought MPs were special because of their pets and nano skill buffing rather then a single animation.

    If flight was a unique game mechanic to MPs then I could see the source of indignation at it being given to others - as is flight is not unique to MPs and never has been. Simply because the animation is reused from QW rather then some new animation (or none as in the case of yalms) doesn't mean it's a slap in MPs faces.

    It's the same reason I don't care that everyone can now have "Agent's Cloak" from Nomads. The cloak visual effect doesn't make my Agent any less an Agent, or others any more of an Agent - it's just a look. The mechanics behind what I have (ie the conceal from ruse rather then the size) is what I care about.

    You are wrong. QW was (one of the) MP's main signature. I remember how freaking awesome I felt when I casted it for the first time.

    Because QW (for MPs at least) is more then just a flight stance.

    Not in my opinion - which is what I stated.

    Disagree with me, fine. But that doesn't make my opinion wrong

    Half of my MPs don't even have QW loaded, I could care less.

    I felt sad for MPs losing one of the little things that made them a little unique when i saw the jetpack came out, even though I think the packs are cool.

    It's sort of like if a birthday item made anyone as small as an agent, or as tall as an enforcer. Not a huge issue really but just one more way of making AO more same-y.

    It's not just that it looks like QW - it's far superior to QW, in every way:

    nearly instacast (vs 12/3)
    infinite duration (vs 30 minutes)
    no NCU or nano cost (vs 32)
    doesn't cancel when you zone indoors or leave the grid
    etc etc

    There is absolutely no reason to use QW ever again. To make up for this, I suggest they allow QW in SL

    Things to note when you think about mp's flying:

    1. Advies been doing it since launch.
    2. Mp's have never been too special.
    3. Yalms (thank you to who posted the link)
    4. Birds did it way before humans.
    5. Johnson and Johnson baby. No more tears.
