slightly faster base force regen.
tweaking the force powers so that things are a bit more even (make absorb stop force pull and push more but cost more force, balance out heal, balance out drain, make lightning do more damage, make speed cost less, make rage cost more but increase the speed a bit more).
making the lightsaber more than a friggin glowstick/shield. i wouldnt even mind them upping the block rate as long as they upped the damage of the lightsaber alot too like fast does 60-75, med does 75-90 heavy does 90-125, lunge does 60 and penetrates defense, med special and dfa are both instant kills, backsweeps do 100 and hit only once, backstab does 120 and hits once. i think that this way people can still get a 'movie' type fight if they're good enough(since blocking rate will be increased even more) but the saber will also be useful as a weapon rather than a shield. i also think that defense should be slightly revamped so that heavy has a higher hit percentage than medium and so forth but as you put more points into block the blocking rate also increases. i think it's rather pathetic that throw does more damage than a light swing sometimes.
in anycase after starwars galaxies, most of the rpg people that wanna pretend they're a jedi will leave to play that game and hopefully this game will be able to get a bit more competitive without their constant bitching about nerfing this or that.
Aoshi, you serious? The saber could use some improving, but having backsweeps and backstabs doing 100-120 damage? Thats a bit extreme, exspecially if they aren't blockable.
That was the BIG PROBLEM with 1.03 patch of JKII. FF Saber matches became into "force pull + backstab" matches. Of course, the Light Siders had the advantage since they can turn on Asorb and use Force on a Dark Sider and backstab him to death.
1.04 has some problems, but it's definatly better then 1.03. And the result? No more backstab wores ranking up high score and bragging how they rule, and now look at them, half of them etheir uninstalled 1.04 or left JKII because they couldn't do there cheap pathetic ass fighting technics.
Anyways about a new game, I definatly think it's way to early to make a new game. JKII isn't even a year old yet, but a expansion pack would be great.
