So as the topic suggests, I’m reporting that vertical lifts are finally useless.
Footnote: as an Australian I call them “lifts” so within this babbling, insert elevator when you see the word lift, it may make more sense.
First they were horrendously slow. Secondly you would pull the flush-chain and the lift would flat out not move till you pulled and pulled and pulled again (whilst making the sound that is was in fact moving thus fooling your to waste you time waiting for it). Then our followers died while trying to warp to us when we were on them or just as bad, warped next to us on the lift’s platform and nudged us to our demise. They reset back to the top position when you leave render range of them. Sometimes you would fall right through the lift’s platform for no reason… and now they just flat out don’t work most of the time. Seriously, not at all.
Are we seeing the beginning of a phase out?
Were lifts wrong to put in so now they are getting more bugs to ween us off using them?
Conspiracy theory or just not enough people using and reporting that they are a terrible mode of upward motivation and it’s actually easier to climb…
A few moments after posting this I gave up on my lift refusing to go up from it’s lowered position and decided to take another route, when I moved off the lowered platform I instantly teleported to the top of the lift…frustratingly convenient.
