Suggestion "Pearl Failed"

Specifically in Conquest fights, pearls failing can be a mostly unforeseeable, yet enormous issue during combat. It is particularly evident when fights occur in former towns, or unique terrain, where there could be a large amount of blocks to cause pearls to fail. I'm unsure of the Minecraft mechanics that require Loka pearls to sometimes fail - but I am wondering if there could be a workaround to this, at least during Conquest fights. It can be extremely frustrating during fights to have your pearl fail, and although it isn't that likely, I am suggesting to at least look into ways to prevent this.

Maybe, if it fails, it will teleport you to the first closest block, from where the pearl made contact, that isn’t protected/causes a pearl to fail.

Yes, I pearled off a glass bridge and jumped thinking my pearl would land since it was only sand under me, but mid way down I got Pearl failed :/ very sad

That’s why I think my idea wasn’t half bad... it seems completely reasonable and it’s a fair compromise is it not?

Is it possible that if you pearl into a situation where it would get you stuck and it fails to just tp you a block to the right or left?

We can't do stuff like this because it could end up with players getting into areas that they shouldn't be able to by tping them the wrong side of a wall etc.

What we will likely do is prevent pearl failing in conquest fights providing the pearl lands outside of the buildings protection (generator and inhibitor). If it lands inside the buildings protection then we will still need to fail the pearl to prevent cheese.
