I really don't think the jump button should or would be removed, as it's just another piece of wolf realism added in by the Team. I mean, think about it; wolves really do use those powerful hindlegs of theirs to leap and such, and although it can be annoying in the game at times I really only see that as the fault of some users. It does eat stamina up, though I don't suspect leaping like that is
easy. xD It can really be useful for leaping down rocks or cliffs, or into water; sometimes it can be used to simulate 'pinning' another wolf down, too. The only time that it ever really irritates me much is when people use it to harass others by constantly throwing themselves at them; the glitches that the action causes don't particularly bother me since they can easily be fixed with a quick bow.

Personally I think that the jump button should stay. As -x- Silvie -x- mentioned, it adds realism to the game. It can be annoying at times when people continually jump on/over you, but you just need to tell that to stop and they probably will, chances are that they're not doing it to be mean and they're just trying to have a bit of a laugh. (: I have to admit that I like to jump over people quite a lot so I would be sad if the WQ team did remove it. xD

Yeah... sometimes turning the tables can be a lot of fun. xD I suppose it's just that we always look from the other side of the board, I suppose, and don't realize that people often only mean to be funny. :]

Anyways, I think the jump button is fine as it is, and luckily I see virtually no reason for the Team to remove or change it.

I can't really say that the jump button irritates me, since it's been so long since I last played a WQ multiplayer game. But I can see what some people are getting at when they say they are annoyed by people constantly using the jump button to either annoy said member, or during RP.

I honestly don't think it should be removed. I rarely see people jumping over one another and when I do, it's because I started it but I only start it with friends. I never notice random people jumping over me, so I don't think it's really a problem.

I agree that it should stay. Sometimes I use it for "obstacles" and mainly carcasses, although I have the fun of using a "glitch" of jumping through trees that block you. :)

I, like most others, think it should stay. It's realistic for a wolf to be able to jump, and isn't a major problem. They wouldn't mean to annoy you, they just would be having fun.

If it does really bother you, just ask them nicley to stop. If they don't, just try to ignore them or leave.


I myself find jumping around randomly rather entertaining. =]

I agree with most ppl here saying it should stay but put in use as well.
I do have fun with it sometimes jumping then howling, causing my wolf to glitch and laugh lol
I dont use the jumping key for anything else. (maybe to tire my wolf out and do the "moon walk" in stalking position... dont ask)
Basically it doesnt bother me at all...
the only problem i have with it that sometimes if someone jumps, that wolf startes to glitch for me and not even the good old bowing can help there... But i guess its just my internet...

Perhaps you could try going out and back in again, then ask them all not to jump because it makes your game glitch. I'm sure they would understand.

They use this button in powerplaying. I think there is no problem with it. Just ask politely to stop if it irritates you. In fact, if you chose to powerplay then you should be ready for jumping. :?

No, it should stay... I usually do Warriorcatsrp and when we rp fighting scenes, we usually leap at each other (ex. I leap at _____ and i pin ______ down.) and when we rp hunting (ex. i pounce on the squirrel and it dies) so i think it should stay :wink:

Who cares if it's annoying? The jump should stay! Without jumping, you wouldn't be able to do the slide glitch... And I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF sliding! :D

Personally I dont mind it. A few times though, if people do it too much, then WQ glitches a bit so the ground becomes invisible. Other than that, I like the little jump button!

I think it should stay as it is. I find it very helpful in hunting when I don't have any energy to run. Plus I like to jump over my mate.
