Hey all, so I recently acquired a BAMF and noticed that one feature was the string dropped for 5 seconds when you teleport.
I decided to experiment with different ways to pick up the string and change it to see if it made any difference to the teleportation (if you don't know if a player picks up the string you get pulled back to where you tried to tp from)
By teleporting whilst standing on the hoppers you can collect the string, which is interesting to note but not over powered in any way because you need a bow to get the string, and BAMF takes a while to get
I lured a zombies towards me from a cave and teleported once they pathed to me. As you can see I then ran and a zombie shortly appeared with the picked up string, meaning Zombies cannot pull back players.
In short, maybe Zombies and Hoppers should be able to pull back a player, making not much difference with Hoppers (except player base traps with half slabs) but making escaping a horde a little harder
Thanks for reading, hope this proved interesting and you like the suggestions I've made
So, I went back and experimented with lava to burn the string, and my findings were very interesting regarding using BAMF to escape PvP
The string can be burnt by lava (and supposedly fire) meaning a player with fire protection or who is quick with a flint and tinder can stop another player pulling them back, making the BAMF strategy for PvP useful again, but a lot of skill is required, making it not to OP
