I always thought teleport is the coolest travel power - but it doesn´t fit to any kind of character
number 2 would be super speed and if I am just being pragmatic and think about average I take flight ;)

Pretty much always flight for the freedom and maneuverability. If a character's concept didn't fit with flight, I'd find a way to make it fit just so I could fly on 75% of my characters. Failing that, Superjump was always a nice compromise.

Fly. it is by far the best travel power. I loved Fly so I might be biased. :D

while I had all the others on my alts most of them had fly.

I remember looking up at the top of the globe and wanting to go up there I finally did it when I had hover. then later I learned the joy of true flight and never turned back. flight knows no bounds. :D

Getting hover opened up the Hollows. Suddenly there was no stress, even though it was slow you could look down at certain death with impunity.

I loved all of COH travel powers! It had the best teleportation mechanic I have used. The only thing I did not like was how long it took to get super speed back after getting hit.

Super speed is my favorite, but I picked my travel power for its subpower
Super jump: for tanks to get combat jumping
Super speed: for scrappers so I could run from mob to mob faster (yes I kept it on during fights)
Teleportation: for defenders so I could teleport allies to me
Flight: for blasters and controllers so I could avoid being harassed by mobs

Hover + Teleport + Boost Range. Had a range-enhanced Blaster with this combo, and it was the single fastest straight-line travel in the game. It was also dandy for flitting in and out of battle, or repositioning across a spawn, without having to worry about slows and the like.

My favorite was flight. Second was teleport. With some practice it was almost as safe as flight.

oh teleport was safe too - since nobody ever cared about pyhsics ;) (I mean you could fall 5 km down and 5 inch before you hit you push the teleport button and would safely "teleport" on ground - I mean what happened to the energy from the fall?? ;) )

Oh that makes me think of portals as a travel power.

For instance you form a portal in front of you and form another one at whatever your maximum range. And step through - this would also give other characters the chance to travel with you.

Or you could shoot a portal at the far distance and jump off a building and when you’re about ready to hit the ground you form a portal beneath you so you go through it but you retain your inertia and now you’re going sideways through the other portal At breakneck speed.

SS + SJ combo, anything else was a death sentence in PvP.

Hover/teleport for my mind/ff troller. I just loved being a to just point and boom there I am face to face with a shocker hold him then teleport back out before he know what hit him. And I took full teleport line. I would use team teleport during the end of a tough fight just before team wipe to get out out of aggro and Rez the team back up.

I had all of the travel powers on various characters, but flight was my go to. For some reason, flying is just a lot of fun for me. A couple of our devs have never played a game with flight before -- the first time they fly around Apotheosis City, they are stunned at how much fun it is.
