Well it's still the brickwall effect, but instead of dropping you right back to your normal run speed, it drops you to like 200%.

If you jump, the cap takes effect. So, yes. Although, downward ramp sliding should work... I'll ask the Jigglester.

Dev journals have been around since the site was made, they just didn't show on the forums.

It's a stricter soft cap. If you're at all over it when you land, and then jump (like you would do now to skim), it smacks you back to the hard cap. You can still exceed the speed while in midair and while doing slides, but if you try to bhop with it you'll be slowed down.

That's what I was referring to.

This sounds like how it is now except instead of gracefully falling back down to the BHop cap, it takes you there immediately.

This is a good thing, though.

Pretty much exactly, yeah.

Finally a bit of finesse being brought to offence now? 2.1 might have my interest.
