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.
So what would you suggest then? Have Bioware put force fields around the gap too so the leapers can't get across? because besides nerfing force leap that would be the only option.

What I am suggesting is nothing... don't waste the time to fix something that isn't broken. Do... nothing.

Personally I like it because it adds another element to the match. A sorc goes to pull a friendly back over to defend... but BAM! get's knocked off. As just one example...

But yeah... my suggestion is to change nothing about the ability or the map. Not that serious.

Take 2 steps back. Problem solved without making drastic changes to class mechanics. Seriously, someone cant just leap to an area, they leap to a person. The only reason someone would stand there to begin with is if they are trying to grapple someone, or they are hoping they get leapt to, and the person then falls. No reason for sour grapes if your plan backfires.

Like I said above it wasn't me who was standing there, but a teammate, I just think the distance between the two sides and being able to leap there with someone standing there is abit over the top.

shadows/assasins can get across that gap as well, if they are really good at timing their jump and force speed.
can't wait for this game to come out!

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.

Then change the map, not the ability.

Then don't stand near the edge?

I jump to people across that ledge all the time and I successfully manage to plant maybe 5% of the time because there is usually somebody else there too.

What happened to you was pretty much an anomaly.

Here's what you do in the future; Don't stand in front of it. As others have said it's a long gap and somebody has to be standing pretty much right by the ledge for you to make it.

How does it need a nerf? It's been this way since th game started, Bioware gave Jedi/Sith a 30m gap closer for pvp against range classes, in voidstar they made the gap 28m, it's an oversight by Bioware, if anything needs fixing its the map NOT nerfing force leap.

They can only jump if a person is standing there for them to jump to PERIOD.

I love how people don't know how a class works yet calls for nerfs lol
