Nice Video So(f)va

Let them say I walked with giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Narcisuss, sculptor of physiques. Let them say I lived in the time of Zyzz.

Nice video!
However, the "Manta Hurricane Flight" officially seems to be forbidden on many servers.
Seems it is really a bug.
That means it's useless :(
Sad, but true :(

A lot of ppl use it...it's like hammer jump - not every n00b can do it, you need training...

Yeah, on any server (which I know) you will get stress if you use it.
Well, it's not easy and not everyone can it.
However:
The hammer jump is a real feature (damages the player but he jumps higher or wider).
You can use other weapons as well.
Avril could be better for online!
I will check how much damage it takes.
Hammer takes 50 hp, not less...

Ok, back to topic:
The problem with the Manta is that it doesn't seem logical at all.
Flying the Manta and turning around (180°, 360° and more) does not let the Manta get higher.
Just holding the 2 keys let it.
Where is the sense?
There is no visual or technical change in this process.
It's absolutely the same if you would not hold those 2 buttons pressed, but it gets higher and higher...
I also was a big fan of it but now I also believe it's not supposed to be a real feature.
If you ask me: Let it be a feature, but we have to accept it if it's a bug.
No one knows it 100%.
I will add it into my bug list (as some guys requested it months ago).
Epic at least should know it if they don't know it until now.

I think Epic have to hire me at least as tester. Seems like they don't know any bug in UT3 >_<

I always worried about this issue. I used to advise players on public not to use this bug if I saw them doing it, but now I gived up because everyone uses it and I'm not sure if it is really the bug. Here are some pros and cons about it:

PROS:
1) You can see manta flying in a way very similar to this in the beggining of one campaign video ()
2) It is cool to use this special jump, like sova did...

CONS:
1) You were unable to do this with manta in ut2004
2) Manta gets quite a big advantage with this. For example fighting tank is much easier, because you just need to jump up somewhere where the tank does see you and "fly" high enought to land in back of the tank, then he has no chance...
3) In general the way you are keeping manta in air seems like a bug to me.

Hmm I think this depends on the servers.
I don't see any guys using the Manta trick on Warfare servers.
I read in Epic Forums that some guys already have been banned.
And this means they are banned from all Epic servers as well.

I think on unofficial servers (for example DFP) it's no problem because it's the admin's right to ban someone or not.

BTW:
There was a similar issue with the Scavenger.
It could get very high, too, but Epic fixed it with a patch.
I did not see the bug by myself.
The same could be with the Manta...

Night, i can jump with scavenger very high, figured this bug out on sandstorm. Works online as well.

When you're rolling toward these 3 stages under the bridge, then 1 meter before the first stage you jump, you can go high up to the height of the whole bridge! That's awesome! I can make a video, if i find more places to do it :p
