I don't know about the rest of you.. but I have played JK1 MP since the day it was released on and off (it gets old for MANY months sometimes hehe) and I just have always hated the people who were dark side and guns-only with a PASSION.
A) Why use guns so much when we finally get a game where we can lightsaber duel!! Personally, if I wanted to use guns so much I'd play Halo or Halflife or something
But maybe that's just me.
B) Grip/Destruction were incredibly over-powered. Absorb ran out too quickly even with it maxed, and on top of that, you still are basically unable to move if being gripped - absorbing or not
C) I really wanted there to be a mixture of lighties and darkies but mainly online all I ever saw was darkies with guns and I hated it - (these are just MY experiences, though).
In conclusion.. I just -=REALLY=- hope jedi outcast evens out the lights and darks, makes saber fighting much more dynamic/realistic to the star wars universe, and the guns aren't able to overpower someone quickly who chooses to weild a lightsaber. I also hope saber duels aren't too affected by lag hehe in JK1 you see someone in front of you that slices and you appear to have blocked.. but die? hated that
I have high hopes for this game so far really - glancing at some of the amazing aspects that it has displayed in the trailer (such as saber locks <DROOL>, wall-walking, and getting rid of destruction <woot>).
I really play the game to be a JEDI, hehe. I shouldn't have to be forced to play a dark jedi just because jedis were so weak in JK1. If I want to shoot guns and snipe peple all day I'll play Halflife or one of the thousand mods it supports. Im not saying I wont ever shoot anyone in JK2, lol, guns add to the star wars feeling, but I feel sabers should definitly be used MUCH more in JO than they were in JK1.
Anyway, enough of my opinions, what are other peoples' opinions on this subject? I'm anxious to hear
-Nothin' else to do while eagerly awaiting the damn game to SHIP to mee!!!
