It DOES take getting used to, it took me some time before I was coordinated enough (red: practiced enough to be able to do it without conscious thought) to pull off the new kick.
Some people DO have serious objections to this patch. Fine. Some people come on here and whine about it. At least QuietSith makes some attempts to defend his position while here (see previous posts) in an articulate fashion, unlike others who just call you a n00b if you disagree.
Your point is valid, and I think the only reason I'm posting here so often is because I was enjoying the discussion with Queitsith before the forums appeared to crap out, and now I'm bored :>
