    Why is this option even allowed in/during pvp and why is it instant when clicked from the menu? This is a feature that should have at least 5 second cast time as it is abused for wrong reasons right now.

    -1. I get flagged on way too much when. Lifeskilling/traveling, last thing this game needs is to remove the ways I have to get away from trolls so I can channelhop.

    it wasnt deigned to be an escape from harm, but an escape from getting stuck. it is absurd it is abusable for escaping pvp (or pve) mid combat.

    It's absurd that I can't seem to leave safezones without being flagged on. I get that I could just let them kill me, spawn at nearest node, and then change channel, but that takes so much longer and v or esc escape if they open with a grab.

    V is an intended escape from pvp function.

    Esc into Escape seems like badly thought through crap.

    Okay, let V break CC/grabs then. I have no interest in people chain CC/grabbing me to eat up my time/attempt to mpk me.

    why do you play this game then? it is a part of it, no matter how annoying at times.

    You kinda wrong, game suppose to be free of CC locks ;/
    While i agree with you Esc-Esc should have some kind of casting time, but then come situations when you falling under map or from high height and you know you are dead.

    Could say the same thing to you about esc>escape.

    But to answer your question, I absolutely love the CP/node system. Combined with lifeakills it has a depth that most MMOs just can't get close to.

    V is a good get away jail card

    Esc esc makes ur nw siege stats look pretty (where lag makes V faulty)

    it shouldnt be instacast as it doesnt belong in pvp. or it should have a delay of +10 seconds where your character isnt controlled by you.

    The ultimate problem is if you remove the ability of the button, and someone gets "stuck" they can't unstick themselves

    functionality should remain, just with delayed effect. so its not abused in pvp.

    ah so basically a delay so that you can still get yourself "unstuck" but not "instant warp" so you can still be knocked out if youre in battle.....

    I really don't see what that's unreasonable.... :thinking:

    Although, the additional problem would be its a singular mechanic, and if they changed it to reflect a nodewar issue, then it would effect usage everywhere else, for example, escaping a very dangerous area where you're about to die (pve)

    V is for escaping those situations. Escape is for getting stuck in terrain. Or at least it should be.

    This would be fine if lifeskill content like hunting quests and the trade buff etc where available pre 50.

    I would pay to transfer all my lifeskills to my 49 if it wouldn't lock out a load of content.
