I'm not crazy about 1.04. I liked the damage scales of 1.02 a lot better, but at least 1.04 keeps people honest. I think 1.03 was almost good, except for people still being able to push/pull backswing and do the saber blender thing.
I'm sure you guys have played ProMod more than I have, so you know more about the ins and outs of what it is capable of. All I'm saying is, running around in circles isn't what I expect from a saber fight, and that's what inevitably happens when I get into a ProMod game.
Even the ProMod website says "Constantly circle your opponent, and switch directions often to prevent them from getting a strong lock on you with their crosshair."
To me, this reduces saber fighting to Jedi Knight (Dark Forces II, that is) standards, where everyone was just running around swinging wildly.
ProMod beats the hell out of JediMod version 1.X and JediPlus version 3.X(whatever the current versions are now), but I'm still not sold on it.
Maybe future releases of ProMod will change my mind.
And for the record, I use the orange saber.
I find your lack of faith disturbing.
