You've been pretty supportive of 1.03 - where I've been pushing for 1.04.
We both like you said, ironically agree, that 1.02 was the best.
I just wonder where you stand on this.
Or is your philosophy deal with each patch as it comes and learn what is front of you - this is what I assume you believe.
No argument intended. It's just a question.
I'll go to v1.04, got to roll with the punches so to speak.
What cjais said about kicking is true, very true. I stated this in one of my 300+ posts a while back, but F-me if I can find it.
The backstab/pull stuff was in v1.02, but the DFA was easier so no one used it.
Now with the fixed player stance (not that I have a problem with this, mind you) you are going to see kicks a Hell of a lot more.
The bottom line is with the parry and knock-aways that were introduced in v1.03, and the decreased saber damage, believe it or not, you can actually kick a person to death almost twice as fast when compared to using only normal saber swings.
This really does not affect me, because kicks have always been a large part of my play style. But consider yourself warned if you don't know how to defend against kicks.
I was kind of hoping for a little bump for Dark Side users, but oh well.
The fixed backstab was always IMO, a good idea. I just made the best of a situation when I used a mouse spin in mine.
