By suggestion of Astrotroy7 I'm gonna start a thread where we can all post the funny crap that ever happened to US while playing Jedi Academy MP.

Complains and flaming are not welcome, there are plenty of threads for that.

I will have to say that one of the most funny things that keep happening to me is when I to take a moment to write some crap on the chat and see someone coming straight at me, so I try to abrubtly end the chat line, but I get nervous and I miss the Enter key and get my ass twisted, so then I take my time to end writing what I was going to write in the first place :rolleyes: .

Another thing, that I asume most of us have suffered and laughed at, is feeling Jedi and jump across a ledge to frag someone, and when we are in the middle of the jump someone pulls or pushes us and we fall to our Doom (?). Man, I feel so stupid for not using force absorb while doing such a move.

I Love to play online after a hard day's work. You meet interesting players. You can play seriously or just for the heck of it. Sometimes they way you kill or the way you die brings that laugh you need after getting stuck in traffic for over an hour.

Some of the funny stuff i've seen...

I get those half finished chat lines and the pit jump incidents.

How about when you get pushed into a pit, and you are about to fall on that tiny lil ledge that's gonna save your virtula jedi butt, but at the last minute you insist on wall grabbing and jump out of that god sent ledge into your doom... talk about going from attempted homicide to sucessful suicide. hehe

And those times when there 2 or 3 guyz in the air and we try to push them over the edge only to be foiled by one of five other guyz trying to do the same. Total push fest. It was funny that one times everybody ran up to the ledge and looked down waiting to see who scored those hits... the one who pushed last... and after the message appears on the screen... everybodyt scrambles for another fight. ;)

there are others but i'll save it for some other time.

Cheers.

"I really love MP, you meet a lot of different people, you can fight, chat, and even if we dont agree on the rules it doesnt matter because it is just a game and we are all brothers and sisters on this beautiful earth..."

Hallelujah, brother!

Actually, I really do love MP online. It's one of my favorite things to do on the off hours... though my eyes can only take it in doses for a couple of days at a time... hehe. Sometimes I'll get that high, of having just played an incredible match with some really outstanding players. I don't care what my score is at that point... it just feels good. Like when I used to be able to take drugs. ;-)

I've also enjoyed the camraderie enountered on several of the team games when it's a really good team and everybody plays like a team naturally. Coming back from 5-0 to win is serious fun. My fav used to be EF:Voyager CTF, but now I'm digging the CTF with sabers so much more. Played on ChopShop 1 this morning in saber only CTF, and we got sooooo close... very exciting.

Funny stories... the other night one of those "kill em all and let god sort em out" boys jumped on the House of Talent server while they were doing *cough* FFA Duels, and just went nuts on everybody. At first everyone was like "Hey!", but then the entire place teamed up against this one guy and it became an all out free for all, 1 vs 12 or something. He was really good, and it was actually kinda fun til they bumped him off. Several others thought so too. :-P

And yeah, the first time I jumped across a ravine minding my own business and got pulled out of the sky was pretty darn hilarious. I was like "what the heck?" Or watching somebody just win a killer duel in FFA4 only to turn and roll right into the big hole... ha!

;)

Boy ! I'd never think anyone would have thye guts to start this thread.... I dont think there are *any* kids out there who are actually HAVING FUN playing MP out there....................... going by these threads anyway....... :P

My MP bright moments, I was involved in a few LAN games with about 10 people in total, all at my friends house. (we were all playing JO, so this was a while ago).

Although we were all in the same room/house, there were still people intent on sending messages to each other(!), mainly stuff like, "Astrotoy7 thinks he's sooo good. Lets all gang up on him..." This was said out loud, just as often....

The guy who was set up nearest the fridge was bothered the most... his penalty for losing a duel...get the victor a beer

in CTF, losing team had to fork out for pizza...

in FFA, the golden rule was, "Gang up on the dickhead who uses Mon Mothma"....there was always someone.....

For me its the experience that is more important than the game itself. I cant imagine anything more frustrating than coming across someone taking themselves and the game *far too seriously*.... whether it be bowing, kicking, lightning, anything ! there's *always* going to be someone who is unhappy, someone who hates losing, and someone who likes to chat to another player - because they do have something common ; they like the game and (perhaps) they like SW just as much... who knows....

Also, poor 13 year olds. The magic age for being scapegoated and flamed on a gaming forum ! Its really hard to do anything right at that age, if you think back...(15 years ago for me)

MP will never outshine SP for me, but in the right context, sure, it can be FUN !

Yes that was prolly me, Corto.

I admit it... it's a guilty pleasure, but I find almost nothing quite so amusing as abusing the bejesus out of Force Push.

I'm not saying that it's admirable or in anyway a "skill" - just that it's darn tooting fun! :)

For example, I was a distant 2nd place (FFA) with the leader only 1 point away from victory. In a brilliant twist of fate, I successfully pushed over five people to their doom with one tap of the button - INCLUDING the guy who was formerly in the lead - and took the match! w00t!!!

It's also good fun to push some over-confident foe who just brandished a plethora of menacing taunts and saber twirls. The look on their face is simply priceless. It reminds me of that scene in one of the various Indiana Jones movies where he simply blasted a guy with swords.

Honorable? No. Fun? Oh yes!!

I had about 1 or 2 hp in a duel, landed on the other guy's head, and the burn from the saber's tip killed me. Other than that, the way heads bounce is just too funny.

LOL! Look at your ping compared to the other guys! Those poor bastards never had a chance! You probably saw the automated message on my servers that says "High FPS + low ping = life".

But congratualtions anyway on joining the "100 club"! I've always had a fraglimit of 100 when the gametype is FFA, and there is often an exciting battle between 2 or 3 players to hit the fraglimit before the timelimit is hit. There is something satisfying about winning the game with a triple-digit score while everyone else is in the double or single digits.

I've been able to own in a few Chop Shop servers (I mean OWN, and i was playing JO, don't have JA yet :( ) and htat's really fun. Especially when everyone starts fragging so fast that there is like homicide strings becasue ppl spawn then kill then spawn and kill so on. REALLY GOOD TIMES! This is when you can completely forget about life. I don't know why but I seem to not really experience this as much in an SP game. But, maybe someday. :)

I'm really looking forward to driving vehicles in MP in JA, this i think will add a new deminsion to the things friends can do. Two get in a lambdashuttle, one shoots the **** out of everyone and the other drives :D . Really sweet stuff games are, really sweet.

"Spamming" force push is VERY fun, and I get a big kick out of it everytime I do it, especially when I get a few kills by doing so!!!

I was on the Forest Sanctuary map out on that ledge overlooking the jungle(the platform with no rails). It was just me an one other player screwing around and force pushing, mind trick, set the wall grip to infinite etc., when we found ourselves pushing each other off the ledge. He got me almost every time, and I tried everything(saber down, not using force, walking, STANDING STILL,) Tried force grip to throw him over but he would push me off(I use primarily light powers not good with grip), gave up on that real quick. The only way I could get him was to pull him off the pad into the adjacent room and saber his a** while he was using push or as he morphed through the doors. Any whoo, by the timelimit hit the score was:

me: 2 or 3
opponent: 19 or something

Ofcourse the gut wreanching laughter didn't help either.

This is not MP but SP. I just started a pure dark force use chara. In the 2nd mission (I think), the one where you just begin your training and fight the probes. On my way to the door, I jumped and landed on Rosh's head, in which he said something like, "Hey watch it". I then jumped on Kyle's head and he said, "Stop that Jaden", scolding me, so just to be evil, I continued to jump on his head for about 5 minutes laughing my arse off the whole time LOL
"Stop that Jaden" LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

I love those moments of "clarity" when it feels like time stops.

You know those moments when you speed around the corner and see a guy standing before you with a detpack in his hand just...looking at you? And you realize that the ledge you're standing on is littered with detpacks. You stop, look at the guy, look at the 6 detpacks in your feet, look at the guy again and go "o.O.." just as you hear the sound of the explosives being detonated.

Bleep-bleep KABOOOOOOMMM! :D

10-23-2003, 09:57 AM
As I was running along a corridor I came to the end of it which was completely sealed off by tripmine laser beams.

The guy that did that was standing on the other side, using the base JO taunt... with the mines still in his hand... he never saw that saber throw comming. :D
But alas...all was not well for our hero (me)... for some other guy came along also used saber throw...not on me but on the mines... the blast killed me yeah... but he was too close as well... so the moral of the story is..everybody dies :p

Take a look at this one:

About 32 people in the game, maybe more, so many people in the game that it was a game of "don't get crushed into another dimension."

Damn you Kaia =). What I love most is to push KaiaSowaPit himself off a ledge. I wander around until I see the ass pinching fella pushing ppl off, then I rush and puss him off too, LOL. I think he hates that. Still friends right Kaia?

Yesterday I started to say "did you pinch my ass?" all the time, and everbody went like "who me?", "who are you talking with?", "Yes, I did, sorry", "No, I didn't pinch yours ass, gee". LMAO, for one moment I got everybody's attention with that crap.

Here is another one. I'm a long time Unreal Tournament fan and fragger (not fagget, I know what you're thinking, lol), so I developed deep feeling for UT's taunts. I started playing JA online a month ago and started to use the same taunts, just to see if ppl remembers them: "die bitch!", "medic!", "boom!", "do you like that?" and finally my all time favorite "my house!".

So, at the end of my first won match I was really exited and rushed to write a taunt before the server reloads a map, so I hit "Y" and hurry to write and ENTER!.

Yes!, I've done it... crap, I wrote "MY MOUSE!" not "MY HOUSE!", lol. The funny thing is that ppl found "my mouse!" even more funny and original than "my house!". You could say I pulled an Homer Simpson.

Deep Thought:
- When the judgement day comes, men will be judged as dogs... And dogs will be judged as cats... Where does that leave cats? - Someone I don't like.

10-23-2003, 01:58 PM
Corto... I played UT too... although some of those taunts are great... the UT2k3 ones rule... really offensive lol.

There's always the "YOU WHORE!" one... can you imagine people spamming lightning or grip or whatever... in other words "whoring" that power... that taunt would be totally in context i believe.

flabajaba2213
10-23-2003, 03:06 PM
I was also a big ut/ut2k3 player. My favorite taunts were from custom skins.

The first was a Mr. Burns skin. Imagine that every time i got a kill, and i was VERY good with the sniper rifle mind you ;), that my character would say one of 30 different Mr. Burns quotes.

The second was a robocop skin that I used. Random qoutes. My favorite, "Dead or alive, you are coming with me."

Fabulous.

Ok, best game of JK MP, well, there was a "private" duel going on in a FFA server. It was getting boring, since everyone was dueling near on big pit.....

So, I decided to liven things up >=)

I got the rocket launcher, the conc rifle, the repeater, and some thermals, and set to work. A few thermals and a couple blasts of the conc rifle, 9 kills at once. Almost no one died from the blast, but they all died from being pushed into the pit...

I got kicked. LOL

Also, same map, the one with the 4 levels that are all around the one big hole, which I should have mentioned earlier.

I was dueling, and I was pushed into the hole. I jumped off the wall, expecting to be pushed again. However, he had turned his back on me! So I sabered his ass!!

He was the admin....

I got kicked. >=)

Please forgive my spelling. I am a chem major, not an english major. ;)

I can't stop laughing great thread,"my mouse" :D nice picture Kurgan, lmao. And on the subject of being crushed into another dimension, I take it that was ffa on a ctf map, done that, laughed so hard I couldn't move from the spawn point nor could the other 8 players spawning on each other, had to change g_gametype to make it quit, after everyone had over ten kills before we actually began to even try to frag each other.

Still my fav. has to be sneaking up on people with there saber out standing still and jabbing them or kata them strait out of mind trick, love that every time, especially when there in the middle of a taunt or when there gripping somebody and unarmed.

Good Times

Ok, here's a classic...

I'm on Kurgan's Meatgrinder today in FFA4 and the crowd somewhat thins down to a few of us, so we start FFA dueling. During a duel with one Jedi Master, we're going at it pretty hard and I definitely have the advantage. Suddenly he jumps way back in the room and pops up his chatbox. I walk in close to see what's going, deciding whether to strike or not if it's a feint, and a few seconds later the message pops up:

"Hold on... my contact just fell out."

;)

Several minutes later (I'm a patient lightsider), he comes back and says "ok" and proceeds to start whirlybirding all over again. The real joke is that he actually won. Kinda felt like I was in a tennis match with Justine Henin-Hardenne...

It was all worth the serious laughter I got out of the whole thing.

wOw... what a night. Nothing specific to report, except it was a whole lotta fun this evening all around. There was some name calling and general nastiness of course, but nothing really that bad or taken too seriously (at least where I was). Experienced some awesome CTF with Alexis leading an 0-6 team to victory in the next game at ChopShop 1... heck yeah; some deadly and hilarious ffa over on KaiSowaPit's server (thought that kid was gonna have a hemmorage before the night was over); some really fun FFA dueling and RP/Chat over at House of Talent; and all in the same day as the one-eyed duelist. It was such an enjoyable time playing... well I just wanted to stop in and say so. Thanks to all of you.

I was dueling on Vjun Sentinel and the other dude pushed down in the big central hole, however I was able to stay close to the wall and use wall-running to run upwards, do a spectacular roll and put my lightsaber right in his guts killing him...I'd paid to see his face :D

Then with a friend of mine we started to crush people underneath the lifters, he gripped them in position and I activated the lifter :p

There was one time this guy on a FFA server was doing alot of the dual saber kata + yaw cheat, and talking ALOT of trash in retarded 1337-speak. The server was full of fairly new players (I was one of them), so he had a pretty high kill count from guys too dumb to get out of the way when he did the wind-up. But about 4 guys had seen it before and knew the counters (red overhead smash, roll stab, etc.) and just ganged up on the guy for about 10 minutes straight. The other folks noticed this and started imitating them by roll-stabbing the guy, too, and pretty soon you'd just see a HUGE cloud of sparks appear wherever the guy tried to do his dual kata.

I have no new MP stories to relate, but I just like what this thread has become. It is really nice to read peoples' experiences, be they funny, boastful or embarrasing.

And, believe it ir not, it is actually making me interested in checking out (online) MP alot more than I have(especially when I get my ADSL early next year) !!! Until now, reading all the other MP posts, all that would result is a Charlie Brown style 'Good Grief' and I would resume my SP adventures...

To think, my suggestion to start this post was actually a smart ass remark like, "yeah as if that would ever happen"(people being nice and positive and laid back about MP on this forum!)

Kudos to Corto once again for setting it in motion. Whether it lasts a day, a week or longer it was really great to read about the cool experiences people have been having with the game, because I believe that was what we actually went out and bought the game for....to play it and have some damn FUN !!!!

I was playing on the CT Acedemy Server last, low and behold when I joined and began to attack I couldn't kill or damage anyone. Then I noticed my health wasn't going down until some unarmed Jawa came up and blugeoned me to death. At that point I quickly changed my saber offense to zero(saber damage was turn to "low saber damage" via server side).

Being that sabers were useless(except one trick or two) I had to resort to punching people to death. People would log on and logoff some figuring it out, some asking how to do it over and over after you've told them, and then those who called you "lamer", "cheater", and even called votes to kick those that were using melee, lmao. I continued to tell people it's a server setting but 75% them kept using sabers.

Well the few of that were using melee banded together as Jawa skins and beat the cr*p out of anybody that had a saber out.(number one rule of Fight Club, Jawas don't use sabers)
Some people were getting so aggrivated they started using profanity and calling us newbs.
I disconnected when my score reached 76 (others where just about to a hundred) If I knew how to post a screenshot or a link to one I would have taken some , it was so great seeing these people not having a clue after you explained things to them a hundred times.

This was about the most fun I've had with game yet, running around with absorb on so they can't grip you and throw you over a ledge, running circles around them with force speed sucker punching them or in the back when they ran to get more health, sneeking up on them wth MT and unleashing my kung-fu on there oblivious a**, but the best had to be all the dual saber people and there barrier, you could just crouch and walk up them and usually beat them to death before they finished there move.

Good to meet you online Akshara, it was cool. And this kid didn't stop calling us lamers, hehe, that word still makes me wanna laugh cuz in spanish (my native language) it means "to lick", lol... Well this kid wasn't too bad, bcuz he laughed at his deaths too, I have no problems at all with online cursing, atmof I find it pretty hilarious as long as you include a "lol" or a "hehe" to acknoledge to be joking or just kidding.

It was fun cuz this other guy, I cannot remeber his name, was abusing kick just like me, but since he had half the ping I had, he always beat to it, lol. Every time I went kicking his ass and I died first I was like WTF!, hehe. So I had to resort to force speed, but I got my butt twisted anyway, hehe.

You ppl should visit KaiaSowPit's server more often, as Akshara said, is deadly hilarious cuz all rulez are valid, even throwing an old lady off a ledge while chatting, lmao. Plus, nobody takes this so seriously and we all laugh at it.

Got another funny one.

I was playing on a FFA server when I started a duel with another guy. Right in the middle of the duel, the Admin switched maps. The map was the Chandrila map with the big chasm... I spawned right near the health pickup right near the chasm near the door to the round room with the supershield pickup and the ring splatform near the ceiling.

Ok So i moved a couple of steps forward and heard a spawn right behind me... hey it was the guy i was dueling before we changed maps so i challenged him again and he accepted it.

Right after the sabers ignite he ran backwards (I think to get some distance between himself and me) and fell down the chasm with that usual (funny) scream fading away.

We both laughed and I said "That was quick!".
He said he had not noticed the ledge behind him :D

All the 5 times I've played JA online I used the Jawa-skin.

There's something weird about those Jawas, isn't there? I've had 3 different people asking me to create a Jawa-clan with them. Every time a Jawa meets a Jawa on a server, they're like "Cool dude, let's gang up on someone. Let's make them ph34r teh Jawa!!" :D

Yeah..Jawas obviously spice up this game, GO JAWA!!

It was cool to meet you as well, CG... you ping was sooo big!

;)

You should've seen what happened after you left. That kid almost had a seizure later on he got so upset. It was his first night out. I tried explaining to him that he was on one of the most notorious servers in the galaxy and to just roll with it, and he started to relax a little. But then a really baaad Noghri who's favorite thing was to Mind Trick and take out unsuspecting people showed up, and the kid would just stand there with his saber off like a ripe target. Everytime the kid screamed foul this guy would open up with a line of, shall we say colorful metaphors that were the most lascivious I have ever encountered online, which literally made the kid's eyes pop out of his head. Wheeew... evenutally a few of us decided to give him a break and help him out, but it was pretty darn hilarious watching him pop a nerve.

i stopped playing MP after 2 games beause:

First Game: FFA: I was setting everything up, and there was this gay guy there who kept saying "fight me or i will kill you" me:"hold on, im setting everything up" "fight me or i will kill you" "hold on, im new" "fight me or i will kill you" "wait!" *he slices my head off* *i finish setting up, and leave*

Second Game: CTF: I'm on red team, blue team has a bunch of annoying scum fat guys (Rax Joris, Reelo) that use missle launchers, laser mines, and force speed to get the flag:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

In regards to Luc Solar,

I just played a game where three guys joined using the Jawa skin. They like all walked off and talked for a little bit, and then all came back triple teaming people. It was hillarious, and they all kept yelling random comments about how the "Jawa Roxxors!!" and all that good stuff. There's something weird about that Jawa skin I tell ya......

Heres my funny moment thing:

I was in a game, my first day or so, and it was like newb central (like they never played JK2, and everyone was spamming lightning. I turned on absorb and went on my jolly way of killing everyone and I run into this one guy and hes just shooting lighting as me, and I'm abosrbing it and he stops and was like "HOW ARE YOU DOING THAT! WHY ARNT YOU DEAD?!" so I was like, "I'm glowing blue fool....blue owns you." he got so pissed and followed me around beging me to teach him how for like a half and hour.....so people are sooooooo clueless....I thought it was pretty funny at the time...

Yeah, for shizzy, I don't think the majority of people who play know what Mind Trick or Absorb is, and it's gotta be the shortest instruction manual too, lmao.

Ok a cool moment that happened to me the other night... was playing on the FFA Korriban level.

You remember that part where a Super Shield (large shield boost) is just sitting there by a pit?

I was fighting with a nightmare bot (there were humans on the server but this was a bot I was fighting) and he pushed me off the ledge. I somehow miraculously managed to do the wall grab onto the edge of the ledge (and since I had g_debugmelee 1 on, I could hold on forever.... but I knew that as soon as I did let go I'd push off into the abyss and die).

Thankfully for me, I just decided to "let go" and at the moment the bot used Pull on me and yanked me back onto the platform. Then I pushed HIM off... and he died. ; )

Probably never happen again in a million years, but it was hilarious!

Ok here's one...

So most of you have probably been on the Meatgrinder by now and played against Kurgan's bots with the colorful custom taunts, right? Well a little while ago I was on there and this guy joins, and just starts going ballistic against these bots. Everytime one said "lamer" or "SPAMMER" this guy would just go nuts, saying stuff like, "I'll show you what SPAM is you moron!" and "Wtf? You're the bleep bleep lamer!" At first I didn't know whether he was kidding or being serious... but eventually it became clear that these bots were making him really mad.

So I posted to him, "Hey man... they're bots." And he's like, "NO THEY'RE NOT!!! Bots don't talk like that!" So I say, "Yeah... Kurgan programmed them to say those things." And he says, "Who the Hell is Kurgan?!?" And I reply, "The guy who runs the server..."

About a minute goes by and he pops up... "Are you sure?" And I say, "Yep. I'm the only human here." Then he's like, "Well these bots suck."

ROTFLMAO

Man i luv it when a plan works... well... eventually works.

I was on the FFA err... what's it called anyway?..errr..... hmmm.... the MP FFA map of the level where you have to save rosh from alora..with all the lava and stuff.. can't remember the name bah.

ANYWAY... i got killed while fighting lot's of people on the landing pad at the center of the map and I respawned on the top of the tower with a balcony. So i figured i could jump, start a vertical red swing in mid hair and lang right next to someone for a hit.

I tried several times ...about everytime i got killed in the landing pad and happen to respawn up there... i tried and tried until i eventually made one of the swings hit another player... INSTAKILL!!!!!

man it felt so good.. plus another player saw the whole jump-hit-kill thing and said that was pretty cool to watch too.

Lucky for me there was no fall damage by the way ;)

Cheers.

Well I can't begin to rant how much I LOVE PLAYIN MP!!!!

I can't ever seem to join a server without gettin flamed the entire time "N00b nub lamer Ive been n00bed hack cheater" 90% of the time everyone else's score is doubled in ffa games.

Did I mention.. My OH My! How I love MP playin!!!!!

Getting pushed off a ledge an cling jumping back at them. Jumping over my victim before taking them on a death ride with a grab in air mid jump. Fwd wall climbing with a grip'd victim ripe for a drop in the pit. Pulling crowds of ppl doing kata's off a ledge. Pushing all the butterfly spamming idiots into pits. Having powerduels while the double people kill each other chasing me around. Running around without a saber double lightning an punching ppl. LUNGING EVERY KATA SPAMMER THERE IS! I'd go on an on an on an on, but I'll give you guys a break an stop.

MP is definitely "the bomb" in JA. I usually play Siege or CTF, but here and there I will take some time to enjoy FFA. There are more quality servers coming these days. Multiplayer is so awesome!

What happened to the idea of the Siege Team Starter? It was an idea on the forums that a bunch of people could get together whenever possible and play MP.

Kurgan
11-03-2003, 06:28 PM
Well before Halloween I was hosting a Siege server and I couldn't even get in for 2 days because it was constantly full.

After Halloween the number of players shrank down to a trickle (I guess the Raven Master Server in-game browser gods are angry with me again, sigh...).

I think the idea is still alive, we just need some servers to play on. I volunteer mine but of course I can't promise great pings. Anybody else got a great connection/machine with JA and willing to do it?

I finally played on KaiaSowaPit server, just altogether fun. I love the settings (ie: have to have saber down to use some force powers, melee, Jedi vs. Merc)
Aside from the idiots calling people noobs and lamers it was great fun.
Quite a unique experience as far as servers go...BRAVO.

About a week ago, it was me, Lathain Valtiel versus ACDCFanBill on Kaia's server.

We were both neck and neck, 29 to 29, and all alone on the server playwise. Battle of the Shoguns in the word of a certain player spectating.

So, what happens? As I approached the Ragnos Statue where the final battle was about to go down, a chap connected.. And spawned at the statue. As I entered and saw this new guy getting chased by bill, I hit Speed, And ran in swinging. Me and bill both whirled around on the guy forsix seconds or so, trying to get each other or the newcomer, until I decked the newcomer and killed him just before bill got me. It was INTENSE.

wow, never thought I'd see this thread again :D

Ive played MP at another Lan recently, first time for many at JA, but still no one called each other a n00b, plus no bowing. The standard of gameplay was LOW and thus balanced. reflexes became increasingly diminished with the steady consumption of beer and bourbon. Cant remember how many kills I had, or flags I nabbed...still, FUN was had by all........

Some good stories in here, so I'll post one that is sort of weak :)

I was dueling the other day and the guy I was fighting was using the saberstaff. When I joined he had a winning record, and he immediately proceeded to tell me that he was a "l33t" clan member in a very longwinded fashion. It turned out that he was a big time button-masher, and just kept running up to me swinging.

First I did a kata that damaged him quite a bit and he backed off and said something like, "OMFG! Don't you know that kattas are teh lame? Are u gey??" I asked why they were lame and he responded, "cause people dont lik them, and they are useless."

So again we start fighting and again he mashes the attack button and runs at me. Not really wanting to get into another argument I switch to blue and uppercut him as he approaches me. This kills him and of course he pops up with something like, "you gay lamer!1!1!! U are so lame. Blue special is so overpowerd! Stop laming me! I m 1337!"

We start fighting again and this time I use mind trick on him and immediately he pops up in coloured text, "Force is lame NF plz!!"

So by this point I've just about lost all interest, and ask, "What time is it where you are?" Up goes his chat box and I immediately jump over to him and kata him to death. :) I then join the specators.

By this time another player had joined and he posts how he spilled coke all over his keyboard after seeing that. This new guy joins and my opponant is still making these long-winded rants about how I am the gayest lamer that ever lamed. I just respond with short answers like "ownt" and "I win", so I guess I'm not helping matters :) He takes a bit more time to appearantly write something insulting but all of a sudden the new guy goes up to him and katas him to death again when he is chatting. New guy then just pops up with "behold my l337 ski11z!!1" :D

So of course it is now me against the new guy, and my old opponant is still ranting about lamers and special moves. Then the new guy asks, "special move fight?" and I say "yep." And we then proceed to fight using nothing but specials. Apparently this infuriates the first guy as he responds with some racial slurs and a final rant about special moves and force being lame and then disconnects...

I really wish I had a demo of that... :)

Well...I went on the "Fun-Server" last night.
I haven't really been playing JA that much, but after reading Amidala's story I felt I needed to go lame some "honor" people.

I joined the server and low and behold...I couldn't get my right side mouse button to work (the one I've been using for months as crouch), lets just say I dropped it and it broke, must have been that frenzy the other day ;).

I got me some chatters, The funny thing is they didn't whine(that much, (aside from the occassional: "newb" that was "lame"), I was disappointed. At first it took me a while to get use to using a different key for crouch, I would go to do a blueuppercut on a duel saber barrier, looking like a complete dork I would walk straight up to them trying to crouch using my mouse and get chopped in half.

Finally I gave up trying to use moves that reqiured crouch.
I managed to do o.k., but people kept challenging me to a duel.
Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy dueling in ffa sometimes.
So I tried telling these people Iwasn't going to duel with a broken mouse button (I hate losing;)).

To make a long boring story short; I eventually started using my kata on anybody who challenged me.
Most of the server seemed to gang up on me (except a few "lamers")
"Kick his a** Lady Death" is what they were saying.

Keep in mind neither of my side mouse buttons were working (MS Intelemouse optical thingy)
All and all I had fun, there honestly wasn't that much name calling, they would just gather their "Jedi Homies" and hunt us "lamer newbies" down (didn't work to often), and there was a a couple skilled "lamers" playing "too"

I thought I sucked honestly, but without crouch, when I get a new mouse I amso going teach those leet guys a lesson, there next on my list ;).

Here's a screen shot: (before you go rankin' on Lady Death, keep in mind when I joined they were pretty much dueling, and I felt I needed to change that, hence the score/time ratio.)
i suck...beware (http://www.oddworldz.com/eniac/t/shot0009.jpg)

"Why can't we all just get along":(
I say everyone go to honor servers and show the little ones and the younger generation how ffa was meant to be, imho.


had fun,
eniaC

P.S. does anybody have a tip on fixing my mouse, the cover thingy came off, and when I snapped it back on the side buttons(mouse 4 & 5) won't work and my wheel(mouse 3) is stubborn too now:( guess I won't be mp'ing for awhile, and just when I was getting into ET.>:( )

So here are 2 stories from me:

I dunno how many knows that but its really an old school trick to test some people how they know the game it started in jk2 and i taked it to jk3 as well and it works, so listen: Almost every game i say to all: lets make a cool hidden dancing taunt just tipe in console: /disco, to make a cool dance, i laugh always when players really do it and then disconnects:) sometimes over 5 people at once:) the best is when they come back and start he u f..... but one day it was yesterday 1 guy from a clan knowd that command and laughed as well all others in game when his clan mate thought it was a taunt and then discos:) he mentioned that he gets off but normally u say cu or bye or anything else but he just get disconected without any words:) and came not back( i think he realised it then:) so we knowd that he dances out of the game. its awesome how many players do it.

The next is i love it to kill people with 1 hit but this one was really nice it was a powerduel and i was single at taspir so these 2 guys wanted to duell me 1 after 1 becuse of ff on or lack of their skill, anyways, then we jumped at same time i started a normal hit with red and slashed him down dealing 100 hp:) the best was he died in the air in back of me so i just saw i killed him, whole server laughed and was like wtf and me also

btw in jk2 it was easier to kill some1 with 1 hit just my thoughts.....

Great stories indeed. Time for me to share one . . . this involves my brother playing under my alias.

The game was Siege Hoth. My bro was on the Imperial side as a Scout. He grabbed the access codes from the droid room and ran. As he got out the big door in front of Rebel spawn, he deployed a sentry turret and ran into the laser-filled chaos. As stormies were covering his dash firing into the maelstrom, my bro uses the access codes to unlock the hangar door. With most of the server players of both teams behind him, he keeps running and gets killed :) On the next respawn, there is major fighting at the doorway, but he brakes through, disrupts a demolitions guy, and runs up the ramp to the door locked by a terminal. Luckily, two light jedi had the door open; he slipped through. Unfortunately, they pursue, but one jedi is disrupted by his handy tenloss. The other keeps trailing, yet it is too late: my bro reached the infirmary and the Imperials advanced. Instead of regrouping with the other Imperials, my bro keeps running to the command center. He almost is killed by a rocket fired by a wookiee, but it hits a nearby wall. The other jedi did not follow; he instead took the elevator to the command center in anticipation of my bro's arrival. His prediction is correct. My bro arrives and disrupts the Jedi with finesse. Then the successful Scout damages destroys 4 consoles in the command center and kills 3 more Rebel soldiers in the process. Eventually he is sabered by a quicker jedi. My bro later returned to the command center as Imperials swarmed in and completely wiped out the Command Center.

He finished with a score of 101. It was pretty hard core.

If you like\are good with guns\explosives and Lightning, a smart strategy is to find servers with g_debugmelee 1 (you can check that with the All Seeing Eye in the serverinfo section), full Weapons, and full Force (especially if they have faster than normal force regeneration). All of these things can be checked in the All Seeing Eye.

Choose the Dark Side and take away all points from the lightsaber (attack, defend, and throw). That will give you a lot of extra Force points to use on other things. Give yourself level 3 Lightning, and spread the rest among Grip, Dark Rage, Drain, etc. You will have no lightsaber, but with g_debugmelee 1 you will have two-fisted double-damage Lightning, as well as punches (attack), kicks(alt-attack), and throws (by doing kata). You will have high levels of Grip, Dark Rage, Drain, etc from all the points you took away from the lightsaber. And, you can always use guns and explosives.

Soften up saber-wielding Jedi with your Emperor's lightning. Then Drain them to take away their Force, so they can't Push you when you Grip them to weaken them further (also makes them lower their saber). If you get right in front of them after using Grip to lower their saber, by using Forward or Back with Kata (mouse 1+2), you can get them in a headlock and punch them in the stomach or knee them in the face before throwing them WWE-style. Then finish them off with your fists or Lightning. Nothing says "owned" like beating to death a lightsaber-armed Jedi when you have no lightsaber.
