    Please introduce movement penalty for jumping

    Jumping is not a useful mechanism to Smite. It is only used by people with a restless thumb or those who want to tease their opponents. Unfortunately, in Smite, the jump is abused. You see pros all the time come out of spawn jumping for apparently no reason (Lassiz?). While I am not opposed to keeping the jump in the game it would be wise to introduce a movement penalty when used running. That way we may see the jump used for the right reason: to tease your opponent while in lane.

    No, it'd only hinder any attempts at escaping when that is what jumps are specificially for.
    Would this penalty be added to dashes and leaps?
    And we already have a counter to jumps in the game, which is Awilix.
    Actually back to Smite but my love for the forums isn't really the same anymore. May most likely not post god concepts again.

    Jumping with your space bar has no effect at all when it comes to gameplay. It's purely cosmetic.

    If something as simple as jumping bothers the OP, I'm surprised the complaint isn't about the taunt/joke/laugh system.

    Jumping is just a pleasant mechanic added for fun, it's fine as is.

    Oh, that's what he meant by jumping?
    I thought he meant jump abilities like Neith's 2 or Baka's 1, not the spacebar jump.

    im agree with op, jumping is confusing with hitbox, some of the gods have close animations with their abilities (xing tian for example) that can confuse too

    The Op is talking about space bar jumps that have no effects and when you're in the air from a leap you're damage immune? If there's not an awillix of course.
    Half of what I say is a joke.

    Jumping is just a fun thing that's in smite as already stated, doesn't need to be changed at all.
