View Full Version : Backslashing? a tad irritating, but what really gets me annoyed....

Can someone explain this one to me (I've seen it many times):

There's two reasons that people hate 'back-slash fighters' (won't say ass-fighters, too English for that, sorry): Because it's a cheap and sucky playing style, and because it looks stupid, unauthentic and dumb. There's a certain section of people who would agree with the latter point who are guilty of a great hypocrisy.

To explain:

I'm in a Free-For-All, where there's some general scrapping, and a few people watching and taking turns to duel.

Some newbie runs in and starts all that backslash marlarky, makes enemies, gets slaughtered/kicked off server, whilst the experienced people moan:

"That just looks stupid" / "Doesn't look right in a Star Wars game" / "It's unrealistic that way".

At this point, sure, I agree, I like to see the authentic atmosphere kept.

So, the newbie is gone, and all the afore-mentioned 'realism-loving' players start forming a f**king people tower. What's that all about? It's just pure hypocrisy! And the worst thing is I know I'll be massacred if I try and kill them all for it.

So, have I got a point or am I just kill-joy moody git?

Actually the people tower is authentic; people that are "in the know" knew that Lucas included the infamous Jedi people tower in Episode II, but it hit the cutting room floor due to time contraints.

:D :D :D

Haha anyways i agree the people tower is definetly not realistic in a starwars sense. But when people do that they are usually just taking a break from the action. They clearly aren't playing the game at that point so it's got nothing to do with how realistically they fight with the saber now does it?

I don't understand how people can run around backwards all the time. It does ruin the atmosphere a bit. It's like seeing the 3 Stooges at an opera.
