I was playing on a FF Saber-only server last nite.

There was this player who was using the 'Thrown Saber Circle' move, where the saber flies around him in a circle.

I used Push on him, and knocked him down. I then proceed to chase him all over the map, but the saber kept flying in a circle WHERE HE NO LONGER WAS AT!. I chased him for a good 2-3 min, him running without a saber (and bunny-hopping to stay ahead of me, hehe) while the saber kept spinning around in it's original spot!

When he got back to the original spot I found him at, it appeared that he 'reaqquired' the saber, because it then started moving with him! Then, someone else chased him off, and the saber stayed behind, spinning all the while!

This wasn't lag, btw. At least 6 other people witnessed this at the same time.

So, WTF was this? He didn't even move around in that lil 'shuffle' you do when executing this move. Even if he had a key bound to a script to do this move, he would still do that shuffle, and it wouldn't STAY BEHIND while he ran off to another part of the map...

Sounds like a bizarre server error caused by the push when the saber was supposed to return. Definitely a client server issue with that player.
BTW, Did the saber cause damage to anything it hit while it was spinning or was it just pretty?

Don't know about the damage, no one was willing to find out! LMAO

It WAS pretty, though......

Spinning sabers hardly do damage...

I can get the saber spinning around me to the whole map too .....

Ah, spinning AROUND YOU.

This guys blade was spinning in one spot when he was clear on the other side of the map (ffa_yavin). I actually chased him AWAY from the spinning blades....his character was running and jumping in the 'thrown saber' animation, where his hand is reaching out waiting for the saber to return......but the saber wasn't around him, it was back where he first started the manuver....spinning like crazy.

Wish you had a screenshot of that one. You might want to cross post this on the feedback board if you haven't already.

Just out of curiosity, does your rank increase with the amount of messages you post in the forum or something?

Yes, which is common on Internet message boards. Sometimes people post worthless messages just to increase their rank.

I was playing on Yavin once on a server and I threw my saber near the center of the map and it flew past one of the towers and never came back to me. I had 2 people trying to chase me the whole time trying to get a cheap kill off on me. After running around trying to find it for about 1 min, I decided oh well and just hit my End key, which is bound to "kill". When I respawned I had my saber again, but I have never seen that happen again.
