Nope, Most of the competitive players were too used to jk2 to actually change to a different game. Unadaptability, mate.
Donít be to sure about that.
Most of us did not move on because JA because it is so simple and nerfed that it bores us to death.
As for adapting.. Well, don't take this as an insult because it is not, but a vet JK2 player would violate any of you from here to china and back if you ever went head to head with one.
I can personally attest to this because quite frankly, I've logged all of maybe 10 hours max in Jedi Academy, and to be honest, pubbing in Academy is not different than what it was in Outcast.
I encounter scores an scores of player who simply don't know the finer points of game play mechanics beyond the typical game manual fodder like "Absorb will counter Dark side powers".
The truth is, so much of JA is pure text book JK2 that the bottom line is, although a lot of things were nerfed to the point of just being a laughing stock, the majority of content beyond the new Kata moves and the roll stabs (I'm talking about forming a tactical strategy) remains best done by those who mastered it in Outcast.
Why is this demo important you ask?
It simply shows how those don't just know the game, but know the game
will always prevail.
(btw this was a ladder match from twl, and one of the players, pyro is a jk2 vet that has played jk2 almost as little as I have.
The other team? That's the leader and one of the top guys from the largest most active clan in Jedi Academy. Note I did not say the best... the demo proves all that I just stated about old school players handing people their rumps with as much ease as they did in Outcast)
Notice how one team chains team energize, long range pull+throws and almost never gets in harms way of a flailing saber?
That's not on accident amigo.
