People argue this point because "simple as jumping" can have a great impact on the game over all even if it may seem like it wouldn't. basically the difference between a WoW without jumping, and WoW with it. This is the argument going on
I find these statements against jumping quite hilarious.
Let me also state that I like Final Fantasy a whole lot more then I like WoW before I get any farther and someone calls me a fan boy just defending a game.
my first point is against the people claiming small ledges, fences, and rocky outcroppings to be "collision problems" These were added into the game for immersion and for the simple fact that it makes the game look better and more complete. Arguing that these should just be smoothed out is ridiculous.
"guys, find another fence I can' jump over, so I'm gonna have to go 100 ft around it."
"Nah, it's just a collision problem, just take away the fence's collision and walk through it."
This is the worst arguing I have heard yet.
A guy also stated "Jumping is a band-aid solution to fixing these "collision problems"
I laugh at this so much. It is THE BEST
solution. why make the stairs incredibly easy to traverse at the sacrifice of them looking really really good, when you can have both? Just because the answer is simple, does not mean it is a "Band-Aid" answer.
The argument of Jumping being to annoying to look at...... You have got to be kidding me.
I find it annoying to look at a 50 year old guy with his shirt off, and he has tons of chest and back hair that he looks like a gorilla.
It is called "looking away" fascinating I know. If you can't keep your eyes off it, then maybe you secretly do like it a lot, that or you have severe ADD..... OOO sumthin shiny!
We get to the point of it taking away from the game. How exactly does it take away from the game exactly? I would like a very solid answer that I can't tear apart.
"too cartoony"--- O plz, taru, and moogles, and rabbits being a threat at lvl 1
"Jump spammers"--- In ffxi you have emote spammers, you got over that
"It isn't realistic"---stfu u r playing a fantasy game with elves and galka
"bunny hopping"--- actually hopping is one of the best ways to travel apparently

lulz, that guy is rediculous
On to the fact of people wanting context sensitive options everywhere.
Look at the numbers, 432447417238941290348756901372891475187432894784725691 places to put this option, or adding the 1 option of "jump"?
Not having jump in a game, takes more away then having jump in that game. A guy brought up gears of war and the fact that it doesn't have jump. First off, it can get away with this because it isn't a MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER
You can get away with context sensitive areas because You only have to cover them in a linear path, and in an MMO you go w/e you want to, u aren't restricted to one story arc leading you in a line.
Second of all, I would have loved jump in Gears of War "Jumping onto a guy and chainsawing his face off." I agree, totally bad *** awesome sauce.
Third, would jumping ruin Gears of War? I highly doubt it, they just didn't add it because They made a linear game and when people jump they start to stray off the chain. U can also look at this example of what they did have.

Jump- to spring clear of the ground or other support by a sudden muscular effort
I don't know what else more I can say.
