At the edge of the map
« on: August 26, 2013, 05:00:08 am »
ITT: Particularly in maps like paritan rumble and dual at dawn where you can get stuck on a structure because the map limit is pushing you against it. Saw it happen more then once and it's very annoying. Eric said in the dev fireside chat it's possible for him to fix the size of the map real quick. Just make the map slightly larger so you can go around them without getting pushed to this situation.

There's a similar problem on Duel at down. it's quite easy to get stuck at the north eastern arch (especially at the lower part).
Also some visiual indication for crossing the map border would be nice (eg a notification pop-up for the pilot - similar to the tutorial text fields). On some maps like rumble or duel at dawn the borders really aren't intuitive and seem to confuse new pilots on a regular basis.

Jept that's the problem on Dual at Dawn.

Also normally you should find out that you're at the edge of the map really quick just by looking at the map. It's only a problem for new players. Vets occasionally run into it when reversing hard backwards if getting chased but other then that it shouldn't be a problem imo.
