Jump Spamming

14 replies 194 views Edited Jan 13, 2013

I noticed a lot of people are taking advantage of jumping and just spamming it as much as they can. It makes it really hard to hit them, they just jump in a circle around the outside of the arena and it's making matches really annoying and not very fun. Can we add a grapple to that so it stops people from doing it? Anyone else think so?

I find tapping R1 whilst chasing them seems to get them back to ground Smiley Wink

As taken from the "how to play" link.

 

JUMP: Jump Enhances your ability to traverse the environment. Clear pitfalls, reach elevated surfaces, and avoid traps! Perform a jump while sprinting will vault you forward, doubling the distance of a normal jump. Beware – you are vulnerable to both attacks and tethers while jumping or vaulting.

 

I think it all just depends on timing to sucessfully land a grapple on someone who is jumping.

Ah i guess ur rite about that but it brings them towards you and gives u the chance to combo them, that second when they touch the ground

Yeah I've never seen a grapple icon over a jumping person, hopefully they address this.

Air grappling was taken out in patch 1.05...that "how to play" info is a little out dated.

 

Although if someone is sprinting when they jump you will still be able to grapple them.

"Chain-grapple an opponent who is who is attempting to parry, evade, sprint, jump."

That doesn't work at all...when jumping you aren't vulnerable at all. The only move that works against people who bunny hop is jump triangle with a sword.

I've chased many a hopper and it gets old. Fought a guy, got his health down and he just kept hopping...and hopping until he got health.

Really annoying.
