Okay I posted this somewhere else maybe it should've been here?... Why are the jetpacks "greyed out" in BB ?? can someone explain the reasoning behind this???

Check out the updates in this section of Issue 27: https://hcwiki.cityofheroes.dev/wiki/Issue_27_Page_1#PvP_Updates

 

A majority of temporary powers were disabled in the last issue. There is now a vendor in Bloody Bay that offers temporary jetpacks that you can only use in PvP zones or in the arena.

 

Edit:

PvP zones now obey the same rules as the arena when it comes to banning powers
This means that anything previously disabled in the Arena will now be disabled in PvP zones
Arena temporary powers now work in PvP zones

 

The following powers are now disabled in the Arena and in PvP zones:
Most Mayhem/Safeguard powers
Empowerment Station buffs crafted in bases
Most Day Job powers
Cathedral of Pain buffs
Various prestige/temporary powers

its to create a more balanced environment for people with less time they are willing to spend gearing up a toon.

 

the jet packs seem innocent enough, but there are several other buffs that give significant advantages to those who get them, things like tf buffs, mayhem buffs, super group buffs, cathedral of pain buffs, warburg nukes, all of the summons that you can get, etc etc. essentially everyone would have the choice of pve-ing for 3 hours for every hour they want to pvp, or being at a disadvantage to those who do. 

 

so, all non arena (pvp) temp powers were removed from pvp zones, as this was a flag that was already in the game so was easier than going through and vetting every single temp power to see what was and wasn't worth limiting
