Oddly enough, the normal swings - there's nothing more exhilarating than several seconds of close in parry-attack-parry work followed by a kill.

I love the blue stance and the quick swings and spins. Looks like a martial dance...

the spinning move in yellow is my fave, the one that isn't a special anyway. great defensively and take a good wack of damage when it connects well.

Second fave is the spinning crouching move in blue, how many kills with that hehehehehe.

Retreating backwards, enticing an opponent to chase you, the suddenly lunging forwards with the blue lunge works well, especially in narrow areas.

Also, kicking people to the ground then running over and sabering them (medium finisher is good) works well too.

As for DFA, I just don't like the move - its too slow for my taste, is easy to dodge and leaves you very vulnerable if you fail. Medium finisher is also too slow, but its good against people already on the ground. Backstab/backswing have their uses, but aren't any use as a primary attack - if someone attacks me arse-first I just throw my saber at it until they learn that arse-first isn't a good way to fight.

Medium finisher, for style and power. Though, before 1.03, I enjoyed the medium spin regular attack.

If I may ask, what is the medium finisher? I am familiar with the other moves, but am not sure what you are referring to with that one...

The Medium Finisher is where you jump up in the air and slice your saber beneath you. Perfect move once you've knocked someone down. It's performed by pressing Forward + Jump + Attack.

Blue Lunge in mid air. That one also saves you from getting hurt if you fall from a great distance...


There are only two constants in this world.
1. I kill you.
2. You cry for a lightsabre damage nerf.

That is cheap/gay/lame/whatever. But then again I use it all the time on TFFA or CTF

Oh, was this for saber moves, then my favorite is backfliping off of the targets face, knocking them down, and using red style and choping them in half!!

Let's pretend for a moment that I know something about saber fighting.

Okay?

No, really, you have to, this won't work otherwise.

Yes..? Ok, great:

The "medium finisher" sucks. It is slow and relatively hard to execute. It doesn't do that much damage and you couldn't hit a paralyzed, skilless, one-legged, retarded, handicapped, n00b with it even though he is motionless, afk, looking in the wrong direction and with a ping of 900.

I'm not even going to mention the delay after the move. The n00b mentioned above could hack you down with a toothpick during that recovery time.

Btw - have you ever heard of anyone whine about the medium finisher? No? I guess you prove my point then.

Someone runs at you...Use your force pull...Medium Finisher...Victory. It slices downward on an exposed opponent, it serves it's purpose. It allows you to take advantage of a foolish opponent with a cool lookin' move. Also works when I kick someone down.

While I agree with Luc that the medium finisher isn't ordinarily that useful (at least in the contexts of the NF duels), there are some players who can be quite clever about it (I was going to go into an example...but then it occured to me that I would be posting an easily spammable no skill kills move). Also, it's not like the other special moves are better. I would say that the medium finishers are the best because they're the hardest to sidestep and get a hit in.

No one complains about it becuase, unlike DFA in 1.02, it's balanced. I have never seen it spammed, and from my experiance, only the best duellers can pull it off to it's most effective potentcy. I have no problems using this in the middle of a NF duel, and quite often it is enough to finish the duel, and without a wave of "no skill n00b" comments following.

The move is one that requires finnese, timing, and judgement. That is what makes it the bst.

Medium finisher=one hit kill if you do it properly...but since you are a Fin, I can understand that you didn't discover it yet

racial tension in here?!?

oh and about the light lunge in midair, you can also use it to change directions... so you can jump off a ledge, turn around, and then lunge, and you will land back on the ledge... its kinda cool... though not useful...
