Simple solution

First, have backstab and backslash NOT need someone behind them. Why?

How it is now

"everyone runs around backwards swinging hoping to hit someone" how mature. They will go backwards fine until someone comes into "kill range" THEN it happens.

Now...if it was where you would backstab/slash when you did a combo everytime, it would leave them wide open for an attack on them. Spam backslash/stab now? You keep doing the move.

That way, no more people running around the map backwards consantly. First...it would be slow travel, second, spamming it would end up killing you. you'd actually have to decide when it's best to pull off the move...not the computer pre-determined combo.




Push and Pull. Either have it's range reduced, or have it on a 3 to 5 second timer before you can do it again. That way, people won't PULL PULL PULL PULL PULL PULL until you fall and then they turn and backslash/stab you.

well as for the pull problem, you can just play on a no-force server. It seems to me that every force server there are people using that. Otherwise, you just have to learn to dodge the moves. And remember when they backstab...they can still kill you from the front as they pull the saber back into the upright position...now THAT should be fixed, then it wouldnt be as bad.

Pull probably wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't used in conjunction with backstab/slash. I like your idea about having a certain combo always do backstab/slash. I've pondered that from time-to-time.

Pull is easy to avoid. Just roll. I've proven that you cannot be pulled while rolling.

You could just play the U104 mod that uses source code MADE BY RAVEN and released with the SDK. It fixes all pull/backstab and push/backstab and assfighting problems on no Force and Force servers. Also balances guns more and fixes other MP and SP bugs.

Get it at Massassi.net and here at JKII.net

I've found at times I don't even have to press backwards to do a backstab/sweep.

I think... :confused:

JK2++ is the ultimate mod.
And you don't need to download it.
It focuses on making the ENTIRE game better, balanced, and more fun, NOT just fixing backstab, though it does that.

Glad I got some good responses. Didn't even see any troll responses :)

All positive...and that's rare.
