So I had an idea(or maybe it was mention somewhere in the depths of this forum not so sure) that we could bring back all the jumps (except super jump) and have in game tutorials for it! Infact why just jumps why Not slides, stunts(stunts won't have any game play change but will look cool!) the possibilities when you actually have the game teach you its secrets is endless

It was mentioned when the discussions about the jumps were on, but now that they removed I really doubt they will bring them back, that would require another change of physics, removal of some current jumps, risk of bugs, among other things.

Bad idea in my opinion, I didn't like these jumps as they got repetitive and were not fun to perform. 

I'd rather have zepto allow more customization to promote unique bases (in terms of traps) than bring back these relics.

The spawn jump wasn't a glitch, it was simply playing the game like your soppose to but tapping faster.., sj on the other hand was a glitch, and I could see why they removed this, but tst? They ripped out a piece of my heart and shoved it right up the kot uprights. .

You just think they weren't fun to preform because you couldn't do them, you know how much easy gems and easy gold there was out there with slo-mo? Even my 8 year old brother had a tst and sj he saved his self after he practiced for an hour or 2.

those jumps might've been fun, but not to most newbies. It'd just be another way to camp (which will be removed soon!).

I knew how to do them but when 40% bases have a TST, 40% have a pre-made layout with a SJ and the remaining ones were kinda original, I didn't find raiding as fun as it currently is.

This game should not be about how to perform certain jumps and place them in a layout, it should be about designing your own base having hard traps to avoid.

They made the game so that is required skills, other than the op and abusive jumps, complicated jumps and stunts could be useful

Well you can read my post with the title "In-game trap mechanism unlock: a good way to bring the old jumps back!". I have got one more feature in my mind to add in that post that will make the use of those jumps even more fairer. I will add this feature in that post if you would like to know about it.

How would you like to make a tutorial for TST? It only involves spamming your buttons hoping to pass it, and is horrible on lower ends phones

1.Well I haven't said anything about making tutorials about the jumps in that post.
2. If not tutorial, then maybe we can give instructions and basic tips for each jump in the form of 'text' and 'images' or even 'videos'.

If there were Ingame tutorials for all jumps and stunts everyone would be able to do it with practice. The game would have actual pros. We could leave the op/abusive jumps out tho

Problem is all of the removed jumps were considered overpowered and abusive, which is why I prefer the current gravity.

How?

Super jump could require a pixel perfect jump to get at the desired height without dying, and the super saw jump was only impossible to do without dying at least 100 times. 

TST is TST, performing badly on lower end devices and being way too repetitive and annoying to be actually implemented once again. 

I'd even be willing to remove the current inline jump as it has the same disadvantages as the previous one, requiring a pixel perfect path.

Ok... Other than super jumps, aren't pixel perfect paths the points? A proof of skill? Plus they could alter jumps a bit changing midair time, angle and trajectory of various jumps trough midair backflips, front flips ect
