The damage it causes is irrelevant - it is easy to dodge if you know what you're doing.

Proven? It doesn't need to be proven - you can simply see the difference. >_>

Is that always a bad thing? Katas are pretty useless mostly, as they can be easily dodged. Therefore, the time to use them would be when you know it will hit, or can surprise an enemy with them - for example, performing a kata at the top of a lift, hitting an unsuspecting player. Here, being rooted to the spot would allow you to cover the whole area and annihilate the enemy. Certainly, in open areas, being rooted to the spot is suicide. But this doesn't apply everywhere.

That depends on the two players - I often see Yellow and Blue styles used to defeat Dual/Double Sabers. Easily.

Name: Fusion (or tehfusion).
Game Type: Capture the flag.
Mod: Basejka.
Saber Type: Saber staff, or single saber.
