Post Sabers (again?)

Hi.

I don't post since just before the game came out.
I only used to post in the times of the demo.
I wanted to know why must someone use any of the 5 stances.

My opinion and (little) gathered info is:

light
  • fast and chainable
  • lunge
  • short/medium range
medium
  • balanced attack and defense
  • good to hack a way through red stance cooldowns
  • medium/long range
strong
  • long range
  • high damage
  • cooldowns
  • death from above
  • many guard crushing attacks
dual sabers
  • fast
  • good defense
  • nice damage
  • medium range
  • saber barrier can inflict some damage if well done
staff
  • fast
  • short range
  • nice damage
  • butterfly

Ok, now for disclaimers:

I tried all stances (of course) in MP and SP but I end up using single saber and changing stances as IMO needed.
My MP games are LAN games only with some friends and I will never think that we are somehow close to top players.

Ok, some questions if I may.

I am posting to find out what are my misconceptions about saber styles.
So, let's ear them.

about:defense

Is the blue stance better to deflect incoming shots?
How are the stances balanced in saber defense and guard crush timeouts?

Thank you all for being here!
