I have to agree that I am not a fan of the floating chair. Perhaps rather than a floating chair it would be cool if he walked or maybe hovered with lightning like TB. Then in a flash he could teleport rather than "blast off."
I really like the idea of a big walking electric minitour. Floating chair just seems a bit clunky and lazy imo.
All in all though it looks like fun.
Thanks to the devs and their hard work on this.
