After being told that there weren't going to be changes to the maneuverability of the magrider, and then told that there will be no changes to the hovering ability of the magrider, there has been drastic changes to the maneuverability of the magrider. Strafing sideways while moving forward results in a massive loss of speed, equivalent to trying to stop. This makes it near impossible to maintain momentum in any direction other than forward, which is a massive hit to the magrider's ability to move around. I believe these changes are simply because of the attempt to slow down the magrider's ability to climb hills by using forward and sideways, since such a massive change to the way the vehicle handles is inconsistent with previous statements. I would like confirmation of this.
