    Mounts are fine. just because you are not good against them doesn't mean they are broken. BPG has much more serious issues to focus on than "do mounts help people escape to easily"

    So you aren't happy that mounts are better once you already gained some distance? Let's force people bunnyhop instead? If you do any of these things better, you can catch up.

    I don't see any problem, besides a few washed up vets QQing due to skill ceiling for catching people being higher.

    Obv havent fought against the mount meta which is have 4 mounts and 4 shot juggle people while they can't move.

    That or drain all your enemies stats while they try to kill your 1600 hp worth of mounts

    make it similar to the sword n board slot I guess that might work, I feel like everyone should get 2 mounts though

    No that's a top 5 issue right now. Every single fight is ruined in some fashion by mount speed. It's only the honor or the will of your opponent staying to fight you that makes a good fight right now.

    Funny i found the same issue with bunny hop. Your beating some dudes ass as a destro and then off like a shot and behind a tree. Choose follow and possibly fall for a trap or dont and he comes back reset. Even if it wasnt a trap he was resetting his stats while you hopped in and he splashes you with a dot. Cheesy as fuck.

    Nerf racial mounts health, make them weigh 50kg more, take away sprint, make them stop sprinting for 15 secs if they take damage......

    DO SOMETHING

    Bluetails are complete garbage compared to racial mounts.

    The bindings and exploits are already being worked on it looks like, and nerfing their hp moderately (12.5 - 25%) and increasing weight by 50 kg would solve the rest of the problems.

    No one would complain about mounts if you only had to hit them one time. Well you might since it seems to be really hard for you.

    Hope they don't overnerf things. They did this with AoEs. They nerfed one and buffed the other and we got thunderstorm that eventually needed a small nerf. Should really try doing small incremental nerfs/buffs rather than nerf and buff something.

    Baby steps BPG...

    Baby steps.

    i dont need to wave my epeen around the interwebz recording and editing pvp videos favorably to make myself look good like a good number of try hards in this game. Suffice it to say that even a terribad like myself can down mounts so therefore so can you. Git Gud Brah.

    Is that really what every video is to you? A lot are for sure, but there are a lot of good videos. Its like watching artist paint man. Its cool to see how each person paints their pictures even if they are an asshole.

    I think mounts should have to be moving to get the damage bonus.

    But right now I think there's too much advantage to using AHK for mounts.

    This is not a good design... it may solve the perceived problem but it will be horrible and feel bad in actual gameplay.

    I agree there is a problem with mounts and we need to change them. But lets not make the game feel clunky, it is very nice and fluid how mounts work right now if you ignore their PvP implications.

    Well, where is the middle ground with mounts then?

    If you think about it, people are annoyed that someone has 3 mounts or more.. You only know they have that many because you're killing them.
    If they had no more, or 1 less, it means that the mounting up was essentially useless.
    So, does mount weight fix anything?

    It just switches back to being 'mounts are useless' again.


    As someone mentioned above;
    There are no mounts to craft after the only milestone that matters.
    What if you add new mounts, different stats based on the rare ore used?
    (To even save on development time, you can just re-hue the original mounts in accordance with the ore type)
    Or something like that.

    Some more reasons to craft are nice, but then you'll be faced with the problem of possibly making all "non-new" mounts go redundant.

    The middle ground has always been where the bluetails are at + 100 hp, which is what were asking a slight nerf on mount HP, maybe a slight weight increease as well to stop people from stacking 3-4

    They are not useless, they let you gain a lot of ground without having to bunnyhop and kill yourself on stats. Weight change doesnt effect that.

    Mounts having 50 kg more weight so you cannot carry 3 + ride a 4th, and having 300 hp so they aren't a lot of hp stacked up, would not make mounts useless. It'd make them more balanced.

    Just for reference if your actually carrying some gear and regs you can usually only have 2 mounts on you and then you can be riding one as well, its not common to run into someone with 4 mounts unless they are actually naked.
