Maybe this is how Raven envisioned the game?
Maybe they meant for the game that everyone was skilled enough to handle an oncoming saberattack and wanted epic duels like singleplayer? Maybe they really wanted drawn-out duels like in the movies? I dunno..... Raven works in mysterious ways indeed....
I agree that the blocking is a bit over the top, although I think the lower saber damage is the real sinner. Make every hit count, don't introduce more 'em, that's what I say.
More saber damage, no less blocking.
BTW, thanks for correcting me Zephorath, maybe the gunners will appreciate this change? Or maybe they'll just shrug and feel no change at all? I dunno here either, I'm no gunner.
