lol...you use to be able to jump it with out a leap. Haven't seen it in awhile, so maybe they changed the gap or something. Anyway, being able to leap the gap is fine. It goes both ways
You are correct. When they tweaked the pvp maps that took away all the short cuts and fun additions the developers originally put in to allow some fun variety. Its exploiting apparently.
The map changes I hated. Especially to Civil War. I wish on Nova Coast you could get on the roof of the bunker. they want everything so vanilla. I like a little chocalate and don't know who complained about the maps, but I hey. To each their own.
