    so is come hither, stormblast, parrying, ice storm, death fog, explosion (situational), and many other things.

    on the other hand, bspike hopping is just aids for everyone.

    Not for the person with 30+ spikes :D Without them added to the mix of movement utility.. how would you escape a 1v10+ zerg without them?
    @LisaL All those things have a cast time and requires the player to think ahead(Skill), why go through all that hassle when there's a no-cooldown hop available to you.
    I love this idea of removing it, would make it easy af for me to go zerg any top tier player I want with 10 dude's to get easy bags.

    cept destro cannot do any of those spells and parry is easily broken, specially if 2 or more people with any level of competency is against you.

    Are you suggesting the game should be balanced around a 2+ v 1 scenario?

    Also, just because destro's don't have the spells does not mitigate the methods of getting out of WoF. Its a decision to be destro, not forced. If destro needs compensation after a specific change they should get power elsewhere, such as the ability to not be disabled while CC'd, for example.

    I am suggesting that reinforcing zerg tactics isn't balanced either, you can use the 1 v 2 or you can use 2 v 5 or 3 v 7 the numbers don't matter it is the mechanics that matter.
    I would be totally ok with different mechanics but I didn't read that in your post or this thread all I seen was "nerf" and nerfing without a better replacement or thought out solution is for sure not the way to go. That is how the alignment system in this version got so screwed up and still bugged badly

    With the way mounts are, b-spike hopping is the only way i can get away from a group on foot.

    I usually am against b-spike hopping, but for that to be removed, i want slow mounts to be nerfed even more first.

    In other words, nothing should be done.

    Remove bunnyhopping all together. Make mount spawning a 2-3 second channel.

    Lets just make the game tab target and remove full loot while we are at it.

    Im shit at bunnyhopping and am too poor to carry bspikes so lets remove it alltogether.
