Weapons werent nerfed? I do believe they lowered the ammo on a few weapons, nerfed backstab an DFA.
Lucas Arts wasnt trying to balance sabers VS guns, the players were, its just common sense. That was the evolution that lead to all these saber only servers with high force regen in 1.02 if you played back then you would know that. No one wanted to play guns with no sabers cause gun only you can find in any other game, pushing SOME weapons back at your opponent isnt that GENRE defining as sabers, give me a break.
