Anyone who thinks that Station 2 gate hopping ISN'T physics exploitation has no clue what they're talking about. You are not supposed to jump past the opponents' gate and being able to do is IS exploiting the jump physics, regardless of how the G Ms feel about it. Exploit DOES NOT mean illegal.

If you play the map the way the developers intended, you CAN'T get past the opposite team's gate, period. The gate hopping is WHY the map relies less on teamwork because a single player can score in literally seconds. Do you honestly think the developers intended for full thirty minute games to be possibly ended in less than ten?

Are we talking about the same gate? I'm referring to the lazers at the top of the stairs. Also, please explain how this is an exploit. No one in charge of this game has ever said this is an exploit, and it has not been changed in over a year. The only spots the developers didn't want anyone to get into is the opposing teams spawn area. That's not even the fastest way to score, anchor gets you there faster, or you could just wall jump off the side of the stairs.

Yes, we're talking about the same gate. The gate is there specifically so you can't do what people do. Again, by jumping over or around the gate by wall jumping on the side of the stairs make it possible to score is seconds. Regardless of whether or not its allowed doesn't change the fact that it is unfathomably unlikely that the developers intended or expected people to do such a thing.

Well, regardless of your opinion, I and others are intitled to our own. This is not a site of strict facts, so we are allowed to post contradicting views and points. I will edit what I put back in. If you feel it should be taken out again, take it up with a moderater, as I will do the same if you remove it.

Except that, by OBJECTIVE FACT, it IS physics exploitation. Not to mention that if you honestly think that said gate hopping is not the reason the map relies less on teamwork (which is completely missing the point of the game), you're obviously not paying attention.

So I didn't remove it, I simply changed it to something more factual and less biased.

To be honest, if you're not experimenting with creative ways to get places using all the moves at your disposal, you're doing it wrong.

Oh, Jesus fucking Christ people. YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ABLE TO JUMP PAST THE GATE. It was a minor over sight by the developers that caused that particular map to become horribly unbalanced. In any other map, I would agree with you, just not that one as its blatantly obvious that you're not supposed to be able to get past the gate, period. Again, I point out that by jumping past the gate, YOU CAN SCORE IN LITERALLY SECONDS.
