Just to refresh everyone about travel powers, what we're working towards right now is to have flight, superspeed, and teleport as three travel powers (which are earned relatively early on in the game) available. We don't want to let the scope creep up to include other travel powers just yet.

So superjump has not been promised at the start.

However, if we can ever get our superspeed video published, you will see that our current jump power (which is kind of awesome) does add to superspeed by quite a bit. It may not be exactly what people are remembering from the combination of superspeed and combat jumping in COH, but it is a good distance along that path.

On a related note, one of our developers (I won't say a key developer because in a small team, we are all key developers) contractracted pneumonia, and was unable to work, then began to recover, and then got a second breathing problem that landed him in the hospital for a day or two. So we are behind again on the superspeed video. I'm not really superstitious, but I'm kind of feeling like this video is cursed or something.

Anyway, we are still working on it, hoping to have it published this week.

Excited about the superspeed video but I hope the developer is feeling better. We can wait a little longer!

Flight was my choice for most of my characters. I just liked the thrill of flying and it made it easy get some badges. Superspeed was fun but it made some zones hard to navigate (skyway and dark astoria come to mind).

I did love super jump, but flight was the most utility of the travel powers, and easy to use. Just set a direction and go refill your drink while you're on your way. :D

I almost always took superspeed and super jump together. I remember having so much fun with super jump the first time I picked it, being able to scale tall buildings in single bound and all that .

Teleport was always awkward to me with the ground targeting and millisecond you had to recast it before falling. I hope it's executed better here.

Flight on most of my characters, because I'm lazy and found it the most lazy way to travel (sometime it was thematic, but mostly it was laziness). TP on one or two, SS on a couple and SJ on, I think, one.

I liked the powers that were lower in the TP, SJ and SS pools, but that was about the only things I like about those pools.

I didn't like SS's animation.

Edit - 'fight' to 'flight'

It always depended on build or theme for me. Flight and teleport tended to be theme driven; some characters were just born to fly and tp was unweildy but also so thematic. Otherwise if i wanted combat jumping in the build they would tend to end with super jump and similarly for hasten/superspeed.

If the power pools were freeform i might have chosen differently on a couple of characters but whatever they ended up with tended to become part of them. I also liked the variety so wouldn't end up with flight on everything even if i could.

I am likewise a character based idea. While the flight was most helpful my werewolf character surely didn't fly. A few characters, no movement control idea fit with, which is for what reason I am trusting we get vehicle skins for movement powers sooner or later.

It really depended on the character
for my fire tank i had to chose jump to get acrobatics and combat jump to provide protection from knockback and Immoblise.

For the most part it was fly. the lasy travel power but I did use them all. some had super speed and afew had teleport. It fit the character or was useful/

Until the first Undereworld movie came out, I would not have said that superspeed was the natural travel power of a werewolf. But when Lucien caught up with selene's speeding sports car, that was sort of awesome.

For myself I always thought that werewolves while fast had more of a slower version of Superspeed with a lot more vertical. I guess kind of a combination of speed and acrobatics and/or combat jump.
