Big Mod Suggestion!!!!
 
Hey guys! I'm going to make a mod so that there are no blackstabbers, no DFA< no sweep! No 1 hit moves!!!! ok, here's the details:

It's going to be called Dueling Dummies

The thing is, you can't move, you can swing your saber, and you just stand there and look at the other player.

Then all of a sudden someone random dies!

I would make it not random, but then the other player would complain that his opponent looked at him too hard.

What do you guys think??? It will be completely fair!

----------------------------

hehe..sorry guys....I'll say it for you all..stupid post...just trying to put some humor in these forums.

How about Bowing Jackass?

Each player competes to see who can be more polite and look like an idiot at the same time. whoever turns their saber on looses.

if you kill yourself, you actually win because you are really just sacrificing youself like obi-wan did in episode 4. just like the movies!! now we can have a game that actually realizes George Lucas' dream!

Dark Begger 05-27-2002 09:10 PM

lol
 
Well make this one big MOD, catered to all you people who hate the 1 hit kils and love to bow for hours!

Well, actually..

instead of just standing there, they could bow and whoever could bow faster would win! Oh wait..then there would be complaints about people exploiting the backwards bow, you know, where when you bow backwards you hit an extra 10 hp. HAHAHHAHAHA

LOL
 
Fantastic :D

I think you guys realy captured the Multi-player element of Jedi Outcast.

You thought about applying to work at Raven???


Another idea would be:

You have a duel match and whoever has the lowest ping

Autimatically wins! (No need for bowing!)

Same could be applied to FFA and CTF !

You guys are all missing the point. This is the mod I suggest. We change the lightsabers into wiffle bats and make the guns fire nerf balls, and we all play for a while and then after a set amount of time the level ends and everyone wins.

Yayyyy everyone!!!!

:mad:

Swingman 05-27-2002 10:57 PM

But bowing is a necessity. It shows respect and honor and I refuse to fight anyone who doesn't bow because they are all big buttheads and dufuses with no respect.

Who am I kidding? LoL Funny post by the way.

I like the mod idea

I guess Swingman fights no one.

DannyJAllTheWay 05-28-2002 01:31 AM

Dude... If someone bows, bow back. Not hard. Rather run at the kid with his lightsaber not even out and attack him? You have talent if you kill him that way I guess.
I understand that people keep whining on the forums about all these things. No one will ever get the game they way that they want it. Raven can't please everyone. Try adjusting to the game cuz it's not always going to be the way you like it. I'm not trying to be mean or anything. I guess I'm giving you some suggestions so that you can actually have fun with the game. Just adapt to the way the game is. Why do you guys think that raven made an update? Cuz of the whining in the forums and all the feedback they got. Whether you like it or not, live with the patch. You made it.

We made it? I know I certainly didn't. The only thing I can really recall complaining about pre-patch is the buggy collision detection of DFA.

Raven can't please everyone? I agree, the best they can do is try to get a decent game out there, well balanced and promoting good gameplay. Unfortunately they released a patch that seemed to take all of the suggestions, and left the gameplay differently imbalanced, and more imbalanced at that.

I personally believe that this was probably Lucasarts' fault--I suspect they rushed Raven to get the patch out to quiet the masses, and Raven was forced to release a sub par patch. I've come to this conclusion after having considered Raven's reputation (good) and Lucasarts' reputation (not so good), and after having read some emails from the programmers to some friends.

I did not make this patch, though I can't speak for everyone who posted here. It's difficult to categorize the people who caused this patch, most of the people here whined about tactics that they couldn't adapt to, tactics that weren't really imbalances, but actually just more difficult to counter. I suspect Raven, in it's rushed timetables for releasing both game and patch, didn't get very much testing done, and therefore did not have the expert opinions they needed to pull off a patch that addressed the problems to the correct degree. It's easy to blame the people of the forums, but their ill-considered opinions should not have had as much of an effect as they did.

I bow, I think it's a symbol of respect, and I think people in general deserve my respect. I don't bother bowing if they do something that causes me to lose respect, but I never attack someone while they try to show me that respect, let me say that straight off.

Some people, however, do not feel the need to bow--they see it as pointless posturing, and to impose my opinion on these people is wrong. Other people, people such as yourself think, for some odd reason, that it is your right to be bowed to, that if the other person doesn't bow they are doing something horribly wrong, and deserve your anger. If that person beats you, I bet it pisses you off even more.

Sometimes, people like yourself, get angry, and call the person that didn't bow, and beat them, a 'lamer' or a 'n00b' and call a vote and get the person kicked, because most people on servers are sheep, and will listen to the angriest voice.

After that, the people who don't bow feel a certain annoyance towards people who do, and they sometimes do silly things like attack when they bow. They are behaving like idiots, obviously.

My point is that your attitude of 'people must bow' is what breeds most of this contempt. I'm sure that you personally have never callvote kicked someone, that you would never commit such an atrocity--I'm just saying that you should be more open-minded, and accept that some people don't feel the need to bow.

I personally always keep an eye on the other person, and am ready to sidestep and attack if need be--as I think any skilled player would. Personally I think if someone leaps across the map and hits you, you probably didn't stand much of a chance anyway...

Swingman 05-28-2002 04:57 AM

I was totally being sarcastic about the bowing thing.

I think the whole idea of bowing is stupid but if i see someone bow, I'll let them finish their bow before i begin to attack.

HappyPrancer 05-28-2002 05:17 AM

if you bow over and over very rapidly while crouching right in front of a guy, it's not so much a show of respect so much as it looks like you are sucking his dick.

-HP

PS - I loved this post. Good work.

PPS - I refuse to respond to anyone who points out the lack of maturity of this post. I know that it was immature, let's leave it alone.

Swingman 05-28-2002 05:25 AM

That is funny but so wroooooong. You know a lot of sick people are gonna try that now (NOT ME THOUGH)

Vestril 05-28-2002 05:59 AM

Oh they already were, another one is if you crouch and face away, and they stand right behind you and look up and down rapidly...hopefully you get the picture so I don't have to explain more...:D

Nathan Wind 05-28-2002 09:46 AM

vestril, did you reply to another thread than you meant to?

Dark Begger 05-28-2002 01:53 PM

lol
 
..hey, it's what's going to happen if these people on here keep complaining and Raven keeps catering to them..so I thought I'd make this mod as a quick route to the end, give all those complainers a short cut to their 'perfect' game..hahaha..

Oh, and I even have a better idea, instead of it beign random, the players are involved in a game of rock, paper, scissors, and whoever wins feigns and dies. HAHAHAA

Dark Begger 05-28-2002 02:02 PM

hmmm
 
Maybe they should make this a sticky so that everyone can see our ideas and make this mod! LOL....or maybe they'll move it to the MOD section..haha..

Here's another MOD idea..

It's called Windu Whiners:

You go in game and you enter a duel style of play, but like before, you can't move and can't swing your saber..just look at eachother..
then text boxes appear ontop of one players head..for him to complain about how the other player looks..or talks..whatever..then the other player whines back at him..and each whine takes a certain amount of hp. Then, at teh end, the best whiner wins...It's PERFECT for all you people out there whining! What do ya think/????

Dark Begger 05-28-2002 02:25 PM

hmm
 
I think it would be a fun game....It would get the people off these forums and use their whining capabilities to OWN in the game..lol

Dark Begger 05-28-2002 02:49 PM

nooooo
 
nooo Nathan someone save this post! Don't let it go to page 2..noooooo...oh well..no one flamed me..I didn't get any arguements about this..:( makes me sad..was hoping for a nice arguement. LOL
