Is the "Balcony Jump" an intentional part of the game, or a "bug"?
I have been assisting people to do this, on my part I've been assuming that it is a bonus, or easter egg type thrill.
I would very much like to know if Cyan approves of this practice or not, so I'll know whether or not to give people further assistance in doing it!
So please, once and for all, what's the official,authorized, final word on this?

That's two questions: whether it's a bug, and whether Cyan approves. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I bet it's a bug, because if you are down there, there is nothing to do... The content comes if you enter the area in live in the correct way.

If the balcony jump is not a legitimate part of the game, then why is there a marker in the classroom ceiling? As far as I can tell there is no other way of reaching this marker.

There's a marker on the ceiling? Okay, back I go... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hmmm, is it possible to get the marker by standing on a desk or table in the classroom? Or by jumping up whilst doing so?

Tried and failed--I think you can only access it via the rooftop

There are also a few suspicious items leaning against the front wall and a ledge above the door of the school...no luck there either.

So it seems that in the offline game
It's just a sidetrip, fun but tame!
But when you are playing live
You must learn the balcony dive!

Now at last I understand
The apparent coyness from Cyan
This jump was in their online plan
So get that marker if you can!
