I guess some of the community knows about the ability of Erebus to exploit the narrow gaps in the crucible map.  I was surprised to see it used pretty heavily.  Erebus can easily batswarm into his own or the enemies base.  Major time-saver/exploit.  Seems like there are some people pretty good at using it.  Hope it's part of the patch.

Quoting CelMare,
not talking about erebus, but i don't think you can do this with cloack of night and/or warpstone. their distance is to low. erebus needs bat swarm level 2 wich has greater distance. well, i didn't tried it so i'm just guessing.
yeah cloak of night, warpstone, and batswarm 1 can make the jump.

It is possible, but you have to get right up to the ledge at the smallest part of the gap, and then aim just for the very ledge of the other side.

Quoting playgroundlegend,
I apologize to ZehDon for making him feel bad. In the future, if anyone says anything that I perceive to be negative I will ignore it. I will continue to share my knowledge of the game with others.


Accepted. I don't mind if you disagree with me at all, as long as we're both civilised there's no reason why we can't have a discussion. Thank you for stepping up and apologising, speaks volumes about your character.

Quoting playgroundlegend,
I read your original post as such...


Understood. I'm sorry if it came across as such, that wasn't my intention.

Thank you to Neilo and Melon, who explained my position. Perhaps I need to evaluate the way I construct my posts.

Hahaha, well Stacked you and I are a special breed of human being - we're better at trolling forums than playing games, hahaha. Besides - I blame my teams mates - and Ryan. He always takes me down too easily. And my Team Mates are always better than me

As the guy who started this mess, I want to add that i've played the game about 2 months, read the forums way too much, and am surprised that the 'turn the gold flag on cataract' is considered an exploit.  Everybody can do it.  No spending 5500, or 12000 gold to buy the ability. 

 

Erebus can cost you a ton of money to counter on Crucible.  You have to carry scrolls to port back to kick him out of your base.  He batstorms in, you spend $250, he batstorms out, you have a 45 sec cooldown to get back into the fight.  Then he batstorms back in, and you better have a pard ready to waste his time and money to kick him out.  If you don't kick him out quickly, he spawns his minions inside your base, takes down every tower you have, caps the flag, and it's game over, man.

 

Then the gold flags.  He's only seconds from his base to the gold with the batswarm.  Nobody else can port there without expensive trinket/artifact unless they already hold the flag.

I hadn't read about this or seen it posted about in that last several weeks, and i apologize if i'm covering old ground.  There are some players newer than me, or who only occasionally play Crucible that may still have this surprise coming.  But when I was chasing that bastage Erebus with my beast, with him close to the death that he deserved, and he batswarmed across to his base..............................................
