    why cant we use rocket jump and slow fall?

    why are they not allowed to be used at the same time?

    I would assume it is to stop people using them to glide to places they shouldnt be able to reach.

    If you are trying to glitch or something, simply use the parachute, the effect will have worn off before the parachute is over > cast slow fall.

    im not trying to glitch or anything, i just wish i could use my abilities to escape some situations a little better. Plus it would be fun if we could use both at the same time

    You can't use it because some people were pairing them up and it could be considered "overpowered" in rated bgs or just pvp in general. I don't understand why you're not able to outside of these instances, but hey it's most likely just a bandaid fix for a lazy developer.

    This is also why you now drop the flag when you use the rocket boost from engineering. It was possible to fly across most of the field if you used it with a slowfall ability.

    because to many goblins mages were dieing in when they miss judged their jumps many of the poor bastards ended as smashed blood bags on a cliff face. The public out cry from these horrendous accidents forced the engendering union to require the safety devices on all rocket jump equipment.
