Apart from the usual "down with EA rhetoric" as a hardcore Command And Conquer fan. Anyway, I'm sure that LA know what they're doing, I just hope that they can produce a product that doesn't disappoint, that's really what it's all about.
There's a paradox in that sentence, considering what the did to SWBF2.
It's a paradox within a pyramid, now.

Anyway, thank you, CommanderQ. I'm glad to be here.

Thanks, bokken. It's nice to know you're appreciated sometimes. I hope to continue the liveliness, but I doubt that'll take much work. This is a very fine community and I look forward to being an active member of it.

G'day, all.

Sorry for taking long to response your generous post. Some people have to work for a living

You failed to forget that the settings can be altered where the player with the lowest score can be awarded the heroes. To me, I find that fair to players who are not as good as other players, and it give them the chance to actually have some kills. Nothing wrong with noobs getting the advantages once in awhile. lol

In the end, I agree with you on keeping vampire health, actually, but there should be no 1-2 hit kills whatsoever. Heroes' stats should reflect that they can't just kill everyone, and when they fight, they can die. The only way they die in BFII, right now, is if they've killed everyone in an area and their life runs out before finding new victims. That's not very fun for anyone, especially for balance.
In the movie, comic books, and the cartoons story lines are all pretty much the same when regarding the saber being the best weapon in combat. You know, they are laser control swords and all. And that to me strike as true to the storyline of the Star Wars Universe. The only grievence i have is the saber-throw. How many times in any stories of Star Wars that had Jedis or Sith lords throwing sabers like a boomerang? Quite rediculous to me I think.

So i think it is realistic in the spirit of Star Wars that heroes can have the ability to kill enemy combatants with one or two hit kills with the swords.

I'm glad to hear you're unscathed. Unfortunately, my home internet is out (which I'm working on restoring in a week or so), but call me on Xfire and we'll hop on a server together once I'm back.
Unfortunately for you, I have given it away to a dear buddy of mine. Which today I found out he sold it for an eighth of an ounce of weed. Rofl.

I might go to Best Buy and get another one. It is only 20 bucks I think.

Unfortunately up until about a month ago most were just people coming to sign a useless online petition or people who would rez a year old topic than disapear for all eternity. And before that... well we'll just leave out the Tyrone affair and the dark ages of this board.

I think it was intended as force push the saber, force pull the saber, or something.

If you put it that way, then a laser shot should probably kill someone in more than 8 hits, too.

It however is not SW realistic that they can take more damage than a tank and vampire health off enemies.

Don't worry and don't be sorry, I understand completely.
Aye. Work=money=bills=internet=your presence. Keep up the good work, mate.

Yes, I "failed to forget" that it can be awarded to the lowest-scoring player. I did keep that in mind. Thank you for noticing that.

I think that everyone here can agree that the lightsaber is the best single combat weapon (a lightsaber does little during an orbital bombardment, eh). Saber throw is overpowered and overused. Regardless of storyline, it destroys game play and balance by making heroes so ridiculous (especially Force-users/lightsaber wielders). I personally believe that game play/balance should take priority over a fictional universe's realism and physics.

With that said, I have to disagree with you and the "spirit of Star Wars," that heroes should be able to slaughter all, while decimating enemies and boosting death counts, as I believe that hero kills don't enter into the score screen's stats... though I may be wrong.

You ought to go ahead and purchase it again! I want to see you online. Sorry to hear about your friend's affliction.

See you later.
