Poll:what is your favourite move in JKII?
 
mine's medium finisher...i like it because of the look and its power...usually kills 'em even if they have 100% health and armour....yours?

Oddly enough, the normal swings - there's nothing more exhilarating than several seconds of close in parry-attack-parry work followed by a kill.

Tchouky 05-25-2002 10:41 AM

where is the blue lunge ???

Droidekas 05-25-2002 10:43 AM

I love the blue stance and the quick swings and spins. Looks like a martial dance...

Joyda 05-25-2002 11:03 AM

Umm I sorta kick them until they die ;)

Jah Warrior 05-25-2002 11:10 AM

the spinning move in yellow is my fave, the one that isn't a special anyway. great defensively and take a good wack of damage when it connects well.

Second fave is the spinning crouching move in blue, how many kills with that hehehehehe.

Storm Rider 05-25-2002 11:17 AM

Retreating backwards, enticing an opponent to chase you, the suddenly lunging forwards with the blue lunge works well, especially in narrow areas.

Also, kicking people to the ground then running over and sabering them (medium finisher is good) works well too.

As for DFA, I just don't like the move - its too slow for my taste, is easy to dodge and leaves you very vulnerable if you fail. Medium finisher is also too slow, but its good against people already on the ground. Backstab/backswing have their uses, but aren't any use as a primary attack - if someone attacks me arse-first I just throw my saber at it until they learn that arse-first isn't a good way to fight.

Ferox 05-25-2002 03:40 PM

uh i never really use moves.. the only real move i use is the medium finisher.


i prefer to actually move around, strike and parry and actually fight. not push buttons.

Pedantic 05-25-2002 05:47 PM

Wow, it must be hard to play without pushing any buttons. :rolleyes:

Agen 05-25-2002 05:52 PM

Are u a poltergeist or something then?

Droidekas 05-25-2002 11:18 PM

Follow your instinct, use the force luke, use the foooorcccceeeeeee.... don't puch the buttons!

Aegis 05-25-2002 11:39 PM

Medium finisher, for style and power. Though, before 1.03, I enjoyed the medium spin regular attack.

solo2070 05-26-2002 02:13 AM

i guess i am hte only one who like Death from above i like to use the medium style the do the runnign backwards thing then do a back flip and in the middle of all this i will swing my light saber after i switched to heavy(i will not reveal the tiemn you must figure it out) the as soon as i hit eh ground i will lunge forward with death from above and it normaly get them off gaudr and alot of time the swig openig them selfs up and i kill them that way.

acdcfanbill 05-26-2002 03:31 AM

i always kind of like the back and left in heavy.... slice them from the groin up.. :D

Jsoh 05-26-2002 04:20 AM

If I may ask, what is the medium finisher? I am familiar with the other moves, but am not sure what you are referring to with that one...

Brandon Real 05-26-2002 04:26 AM

The Medium Finisher is where you jump up in the air and slice your saber beneath you. Perfect move once you've knocked someone down. It's performed by pressing Forward + Jump + Attack.

BlackDove 05-26-2002 05:00 AM

Blue Lunge in mid air. That one also saves you from getting hurt if you fall from a great distance...

ArmchairAthlete 05-26-2002 05:33 AM

Pull + Backstab + Absorb = Efficient Killing Machine

Ferox 05-26-2002 12:07 PM

heh.. sounds more like a cheap no skilled fighter to me.


and thats exactly what i mean by pushing buttons smart asses hehe( is ok i am one too). always doing pre scripted moves etc, the only real one i use is medium finisher every once in a while.

That is cheap/gay/lame/whatever. But then again I use it all the time on TFFA or CTF :D

Luc Solar 05-26-2002 12:28 PM

TFFA? That is lame..even for a Swede.

Oh gosh! Did I say that out loud?! Damn.. no hard feelings neighbor :D

JandoFett1842 05-26-2002 12:32 PM

My favorite move in JO is the one where you shot someone in the face at point blank with a missle!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAH!

:rofl: :lol: :rofl:

JandoFett1842 05-26-2002 12:36 PM

Oh, was this for saber moves, then my favorite is backfliping off of the targets face, knocking them down, and using red style and choping them in half!!

:lsduel: :mob: :lsduel:

Luc Solar 05-26-2002 12:55 PM

Let's pretend for a moment that I know something about saber fighting.

Okay?

No, really, you have to, this won't work otherwise.

Yes..? Ok, great:

The "medium finisher" sucks. It is slow and relatively hard to execute. It doesn't do that much damage and you couldn't hit a paralyzed, skilless, one-legged, retarded, handicapped, n00b with it even though he is motionless, afk, looking in the wrong direction and with a ping of 900.

I'm not even going to mention the delay after the move. The n00b mentioned above could hack you down with a toothpick during that recovery time.

Btw - have you ever heard of anyone whine about the medium finisher? No? I guess you prove my point then. :D

Someone runs at you...Use your force pull...Medium Finisher...Victory. It slices downward on an exposed opponent, it serves it's purpose. It allows you to take advantage of a foolish opponent with a cool lookin' move. Also works when I kick someone down.

Vestril 05-26-2002 03:54 PM

While I agree with Luc that the medium finisher isn't ordinarily that useful (at least in the contexts of the NF duels), there are some players who can be quite clever about it (I was going to go into an example...but then it occured to me that I would be posting an easily spammable no skill kills move). Also, it's not like the other special moves are better. I would say that the medium finishers are the best because they're the hardest to sidestep and get a hit in.

No one complains about it becuase, unlike DFA in 1.02, it's balanced. I have never seen it spammed, and from my experiance, only the best duellers can pull it off to it's most effective potentcy. I have no problems using this in the middle of a NF duel, and quite often it is enough to finish the duel, and without a wave of "no skill n00b" comments following.

The move is one that requires finnese, timing, and judgement. That is what makes it the bst.

And I'm not Swedish, so no offense taken :D

Medium finisher=one hit kill if you do it properly...but since you are a Fin, I can understand that you didn't discover it yet ;)

acdcfanbill 05-26-2002 07:09 PM

racial tension in here?!? :D

oh and about the light lunge in midair, you can also use it to change directions... so you can jump off a ledge, turn around, and then lunge, and you will land back on the ledge... its kinda cool... though not useful...

Din skide svensker! Du har jo selv skrevet i din location-boks at du kommer fra sverige. Så hold op med at lyve en anden gang...

Just joking, men det virker stadig som om du ik ved hvad du skrev...

Ahem.... Racial tension? No no, not at all, i just personally play way too much against fins and swedes...

Padawan911[LMF] 05-26-2002 11:28 PM

my favourite move... lets see. first i go to consol and type in /cl_yawspeed 10000 then bind turn left to Q.

when fighting i kick them to do the ground then either do the crazy super speed backstab with Q or the medium finisher
