Why do the developers like flight more than any other movement ?

    I just noticed that a lot of the missions I run through There are a lot of overhang and things that we people with acrobatics and superspeed get caught up on and are unable to progress as easily as those with flight?
    Not only that but there are Bosses that fly and unless you have flight you can't fight them so I don't understand how somebody with acrobatics or superspeed is supposed to be able to do In those situations

    The only time I'm jealous of flight, myself being Acro, is when I'm trying to get that collection that's in a wierd spot and when I finally get to where I can collect it I start falling off of the ledge because of the collecting animation. Perfect example is in the wrath section of Gotham wastelands. The collection that sits on top of the horn-like thing. Pure hell.

    I agree, I must have oiled up my boot soles because unless the surface is flat and level, I will be skating off of it.

    Edit: I would also just like to suggest cutting the animation time to gather anything by 75%

    Is this topic a joke ? Us fliers can't even fly in like 80% of the encounters in this game. Everything is grounded, grounded, grounded.

    Umm...jens uses acrobatics lol. And flying bosses are irrelevant, I am acro and I can fight every flying boss just fine.

    That's why I always keep the joker jetpack in inventory. I used it for those exact collections, I had the map and it was still a pain to get it using acro.

    Good call. I just recently, finally, got the jet pack. It's still silly that you fall off a ledge or slope while collecting.

    It's idiotic to presume to know what they like. Someone could find faults with all movements and make the same claims.

    Flight is EZ mode in about 85% of the game, thats why so many people use it.

    Really? Then tell me how flight has any difficulties. I would love to know. You can fight in mid-air, collect in mid-air, and just float away in pvp making it so no other movement can reach you. And even of ypu could be reached you can just block while hovering. If you cant recognize that the devs shpw favoritism to flight and 2 power sets then you're just deaf dumb and blind.

    actually you can be reached while flying.

    the only time i've used a movement respec token was to change an alt from acrobatics to flight. a move i've never regretted despite pretty much having retired the toon three dlcs ago.

    it does have its advantages over super speed and acrobatics. i think acro and ss is a lot of fun but not as "practical" overall.

    i wish there was a way we could break out of crawl mode in emergencies.

    its also very annoying somehow accidentally launching into flight mode while fighting when you want to be on the ground. the next thing you know your toon is flat on its back hitting up into the air...

    one of the best things to experience in this game is flying high over metropolis.

    There is a reason the majority of PvPers use SS and my league regularly asks me to change to SS.

    If you can't realize that being able to fly would definitely have its advantages over the others if they were all a real world power, then maybe, just maybe, you're the one who needs to do more thinking on this.

    Why do you think air superiority is priority in war?

    I would suggest purchasing a movement respec token and stop being envious.
  16. Whiteroom New Player

    given that its the worst movement mode in battle..
  17. benaiah New Player

    I've played all three, have you? And why is it the worst one in battle? You can FLY AWAY. Pop a shield and you're gone. How horrible. Let me shed a tear for you.

    Acro can be the boss in open world pvp though. If your getting hurt go to a building and grapple up. Goes at super speed, 0% chance anyone can catch you at the top, and once your there, use rocket propelled to get away. Simple tactic that works as long as you are near a building.
  19. Evil Leaper New Player

    I can see the plus of each one but it seems that flight has the best advantage overall.

    I think SS and Acro have far superior loadouts than does flight. SS Whirling Dervish is a great melee move. The Acro loadouts are great fun and I've built one toon specifically around them. In addition, if you buy the Tumbling Master tactical mod, you basically get Tumbling Master on demand with no power consumption and no cooldown.
