all the topics in the forum were about complaining. They complaint about DS, they complaint about back swing. They complaint before the patch. they complaint after the patch.

Don't hate the game, hate the player.

Raven, don't waste your time on this whiners. You should never even bother to adjust DS. They can quit if they don't like it.

BTW, I don't use DS, I am a medium saber user. Yes, I often got killed by DS. Question is : So what??

From all the topics, we can see player cannot afford to lose. They "must" win. They don't give a damn if you die or lose. They just want to win.

Pretty selfish people/gamer.

For those who DS or backswing spammers, continue with your style. Don't let the whiners affect your game play.

They're abusing a significant oversight and ruining the game for everyone else. It's not only the whiners who hate those spammers, and whiners aren't the only reason Raven changed it.

keep in mind that games were developed so that winning would be the ultimate goal. to say blame the people who want to win would be saying get rid of games since you play to win. There really is no fun in playing a game if you lose.

Err, thats not true. As a person who has developed a few games and mods, I speak from experience. Games are made for creating a fun experience - in this case, to bring the Star Wars universe to a 3rd person shooter. Winning is not the sole objective of a game - gaining experience and enjoyment from it is!

On another note:

This isn't counter-strike, where your status is directly proportional to your kill ratio, but rather how you chose to play the game.

Through all this blood and tears and nerve-grating whining, you must all remember that this is really only a game.
