Unless they’d like some disconnects mid-combat.

World of Warcraft Classic No Jump

World of Warcraft Classic players involved in PTR testing are going to have to give up on an almost-constant MMORPG player habit for a while. That is if they don’t want to experience negative effects like being stunned, rooted, or otherwise stuck mid-air while in combat. Players have discovered the hard way that jumping is detrimental to their in-game health – even getting them killed in the middle of a fight.

Players have been reporting the issue via bug reports and also dropped posts about the issue. In reply to the latter, Classic Game Producer Aggrend confirmed they know about the issue and that they hope to have it fixed by next week. Until then, he suggests players avoid jumping in combat, as it is the confirmed cause of the issue. He also noted that he knows, “asking WoW players not to spam jump is kinda like asking them not to breathe,” but promises they’ll have their “space bars back soon”.

So, if you’re doing a bit of PTR testing, don’t jump – at least until the devs give the okay.

Note: Activision Blizzard has been sued by California’s Civil Rights Department, alleging violations of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act and Equal Pay Act. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about the alleged violations within his company. These allegations have all been denied by Activision Blizzard and the company points to additional diversity and inclusion training as past examples of taking the accusations seriously at the time they were made.
