Crouching should reduce fall damage
As of now it just increases fall damage because the length of your fall is increased but I think it should reduce it because bend your knees etc.

Thoughts?

I hate fall damage, so I would like this.

but why does crouching in mid air increase your rocket jump height?

Ask Valve, not us. It's their engine.

I can think of a few reasons. Both depending on bad logic, or game mechanics. So, I'll give you the most likely one. By crouching in air, you're making it so the explosions hits a larger amount of the player entity, therefore increasing the launch distance proportionately to how much more of the player entity the blast radius hits.

Is this 100% correct? Ask Valve. Its just an assumption.

If you're looking more for a bad logic reasoning, think "cannonball".

Go back to whatever that mechanic is from

It hurts my butt more :|
Why would you ever fall from a 4-story building in real life, anyway?

I agree, but the player should need to time it, means that he needs to press the crouch key in the moment he lands, else it would be too easy.

I don't think that would work out well. Bunny hopping was pretty much removed and you need perfect timing to bunny hop. I don't see anything wrong with making it easy to do this.

Crouch doesn't actually make your head move closer to your feet instead it makes your feet move closer to your head. When you are pulling your legs up in mid-air of course you will achieve bigger momentum from gravity before you reach the ground and also you have less time to absorb the impact than when you extend your feet for it.

If you want to lessen the fall damage you can crouch while walking off a ledge and then release crouch as you land. You travel less vertical distance and receive less momentum and less fall damage.

The system is already 100% logical.

But I can see as a player you wish there was something you could do to deal with a fall damage you see coming just like you would try to do some ninja rolling stuff IRL. :) I like the idea but it would need a separate function from crouching. Perhaps even jumping would be more logical than crouching as fall damage relief method.
