It was not a hack... the poster above you is incorrect.

There is no force field in the middle of either side and if a player is standing on the edge not only can a warrior leap to the player on the other side if the bridges still are not down but a defending sorc can also pull a player back to help defend the bridge nodes.

In the end... working as intended. Well maybe not... but it's fine. You have to stand RIGHT on the edge for it to work so either a dumb player looking for a good view was too close or it was a player looking for a friendly pull back the to defending side that got taken advantage of.

Either way.... nothing special. Nothing game breaking.

I was in a lowbie VS game yesterday and two leapers on defense jumped the gap and made it harder for us to get the bridges down. Never saw it before, I've seen sorcs pull friendlies over the gap before but I guess leapers can do it on their own now.

I actually haven't seen this area used in a good minute since I came back to the game.

Still the distance between the bridge to the other side is crazy, the force leap needs to be nerfed down abit, it just gives leapers an unfair advantage to other players that can't reach them

No, it's your fault for standing where you shouldn't. Learn from your mistake and move on.

It's not worth changing.... your cause is one of little importance.

THIS is not the kinda thing I want the development team wasting their time with, especially with how little it gets used and the other fact that it takes 2 players to take advantage of it.

And like I said... it's not only leapers... it's also sorcs... hell... jump on a sniper and shoot someone close to the edge. You're wasting your time on this one. Not... that... serious.

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

LOL! Like it's the only map where leapers have an advantage...
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

actually it wasn't me who stood on the other side it was one of my teammates, but the matter of the fact is the leap has too far of an advantage over all other abilities put together, and I thought it was overused in Huttball but now this? Look at the distance between the two sides between the bridge that's just crazy being able to leap over there!

So, for whatever reason that individual got across the gap Force Leap probably was not the cause.
Actually that gap is like 29m, from the protrusions (you know the ones VG/PTs stand on to grapple people and make them fall). Just dont stand on em and you're good.

Leap doesn't need a nerf though.
