Jumping bug?

I sometimes don't get the normal jump height in H2A. I'll press the button, and it's like I only jump maybe 2/3 of the normal height. It's extremely annoying for making tactical jumps like the shortcut behind the camo tower on Stone Town, for example. That's a really easy crouch jump, but there are times when I come up like 3 feet short for no apparent reason. It's extremely annoying and can make the difference in retaking map control if you have to spend a full minute taking the scenic route around the map just to get up to the rocket area on Stone Town, for example. (I'm thinking of the jump from below the rocket spawn up to the ledge with the barrels, which is the only quick way up to the top of the map from Froman side. You can barely make it with a crouch jump, but will fall all the way down if the jump button screws up.)

Anyone else have this happen to them? This game seems to be so messed up that it's a different set of bugs for everyone, so your mileage may vary. You probably wouldn't notice it if you don't use shortcut jumps a lot.

I haven't experienced it...yet, but that doesn't mean the jump glitch doesn't exist.  In fact, it would surprise me more if it didn't.  laugh  Speaking of H2A, you've seen the post about the upload data spikes for it right?  I'm on my phone right now so if you need/want a link it will have to be later, but every so often, H2A requires a sudden spike in upload data, jumping from (if I recall correctly) ~200kb/s to 1.0-1.5mb/s.  This accounts for lag on my end since my shitty ISP only offers 3mb/s up max.

I've seen graphs of that, yes.

Another thing that wouldn't surprise me is if the controller is so shitty that it's a hardware issue, just like how Microsoft couldn't figure out how to make a controller without slow turn issues in the 9 years of the 360's lifespan.

I haven't experienced this either but I will use it for now on as an excuse for falling off the map. I have heard people talking about taking fall damage from a regular jump before though.

It did it to me again on Lockdown. Sniper was on respawn so I tried to use the shortcut jump to get control of sniper tower. That's a pretty easy jump in H2A, but I jumped like half height and wasn't even close to making the jump. I think my shoulders barely cleared the parapet and I fell to my death and we lost control of the sniper rifle.

Something is definitely wrong here. I don't think it's just me sucking at easy jumps. frown

No, its not just you.  I get it with the short jump on Lockdown, the shortcut ramp to camo in Zanzibar, and the new ledge in shrine back by the shotgun in the back of the base.  The last one pisses me off the most lol,.
