Why Ban Pogo Stick? (Rant)

Why would you ban the pogo stick mount? i asked other people why and they just said “because it lets less experienced players gain a lot of speed”. is this really the case? if so then 1. It lets new players escape from GODS at pvp like beetleeye and gywn (And me ;D). 2. its fun to pogo around the pvp map. its like a mini pogo course! 3. It can be used to go downwards and up AND you can mess around and flip with the pogo stick. Plz bring the pogo stick back.

It’s hard getting used to Slimy Saddle, so I would really like to have pogo back.

Though the removal of pogo might be temporary/experimental…

If you want to appeal to un-ban the Pogo Stick, do so in the Terraria PvP Lounge or the Dark Gaming Discord.

The PvP Lounge is pretty insular, and only particular people can invite you there.

Why ban Pogo Stick? Because it takes almost no skill to use and has more output than saddle, I can guarantee that if pogo were to never exist that you wouldn’t complain about the gelatinous pillion being banned and only having to use saddle.

Cart Dash + Pogo Stick means you can fly across the arena in a ton of different directions, and never loses momentum overtime.
So personally I think pogo shouldn’t be unbanned for the time being so you can adapt to the feel of saddle - which the majority of the older players used, so it’s not that bad, and it takes more skill and thought to use. :slight_smile:

man immediately invalidated his opinion by also calling gywn a god and himself

Please don’t downscale the argument too much.
Pogo is being TEST banned because of multiple reasons, only one of which you glossed over.
Pogo allows for players of all skill levels to gain very very high amounts of mobility with little to no skill investment required. This does not just apply to newer players like you, it applies to older veteran players like myself. My movement capabilities have tripled thanks to pogo, and I don’t like abusing movement things to begin with, it’s simply not something I’m familiar or invested in.
Pogo also invalidates a large number of other mounts, and as Solar mentioned, can be combined with cart dashing to effectively give you the speed of holding a portal gun while maintaining the vertical mobility of slimy saddle and similar.
It’s simply way too powerful of an all purpose tool with way too little commitment, or skill required in order to be a fair feeling tool.
The purpose of banning equipment is vague, but one of the biggest is something which we cannot balance which is best countered by using itself.
This applies to Last Prism, RoD, teleportation commands, and so on, and also to Pogo as well.
I appreciate people voicing their discontent with these changes, but I have to say…
We banned pogo LESS THAN A DAY AGO, you could at least TRY to get used to new equipment BEFORE you create a whole thread labeled as a rant on the forums.
