very nice post.
on the staff: one of my favorite moves is to come at them with a forward+right attack then switch to a strafe right. against single sabers this tends to knock the saber away and then i get a slice or three on them with the spin of the saber. staffers are affected pretty much the same way. duals can sometimes block it, but most ive found will just try to attack you as you meet them and get their sabers knocked aside.
if i knock my opponents saber aside, i usually follow up with a strafe left for another quick two hits and then a back+left or back+right to retreat as most people get pretty pissed and follow me.
if i dont knock their saber aside i either back off if it looks like theyll recover or i kick em just to piss em off.
just my thoughts. great post.
