With the new Overload, you can leap and knockback opponents on higher grounds in mid leap. Did it tonight. I was in mid and the ball carrier was surrounded on the 1st level platform right above the wind jet trap. I jumped up to set up the shot, Overloaded and did a clean sweep of all of the guys on the BC then landed back at mid. I have electric bindings for the root, of course, so the bought some time. Led to a score eventually.
But the animation was still cheesy.
