I am (was) devoutly attached to medium stance and am deeply saddened at it's newfound uselessness. (thanks raven, not to say i don't love the game) But to every dark cloud there is a silver lining. i have been playing all day, and have come to find that the new medium is.... drum roll... light? yes, it's light. medium users, try it out. the timing is a little faster, the range a little smaller. and now, compared to the new medium and heavy, does decent damage. and on the upside, i now get to use light's cool looking moves. try it out and tell me what you think? (i don't think light is cool, i'm just trying to find some joy in this patch.)

Yeah medium has been made quite a challenge but i still like it, I find in this new patch I'm using all 3 stances to go for the kill. I have no complaints every stance has its ups and downs now.

Medium is still useful if you're at all willing to vary your tactics. Someone said in another thread that we will start to see the good players (and I'd like to consider myself one) using all three stances in a fight. But really it's been like that all along. Also, medium is pretty much the same as it was pre-patch unless you were a twirl-spammer.

I disagree with you (not to invalidate your opinion.... just stating my own). Since the patch I have found better uses for ALL stances and find myself using all three in duels and FFAs. Think the stances are so much better balanced now and don't find medium useless at all.

I think my saber fighting skill has actually increased since the patch.
