Ability to climb ladders whilst riding in the helicopter

In the versus map "Helipad" you are able to climb ladders while in the helicopter, despite the fact that the back of the helicopter is covering it.

We intentionally designed the map like this, knowing about this little quirk.

Wouldn’t it just be better to have the helicopters go above the ladders? I don’t see how designing the map that way solved the issue.

If the helicopter flew above everything there would be way less interaction with it. The whole point of those ladders is to have multiple ways to the top. While the helicopter's path overlapping the ladders leads to this unfortunate visual quirk, I think it's worth it.

We may at some point make it so you can't climb a ladder while something else is overlapping the ladder -- but it's a very low priority and may never happen.
