pretty much all the ffa servers i play on now have "if saber is off, do not attack!" or something similar in their motd or name. i always follow this rule, unless me and someone else agree to mess around, like having a kicking duel.

if i see anyone not following the rule in one of these servers, i show no mercy. a lot of times a bunch of us who do follow the rules will gang up on them. like one person will grip them while the others hack away.


if i'm on an ffa server that doesn't specify this as a rule, i show other players the same respect they show to me. if they have their saber off and bow, i do the same. if they instantly attack, obviously i'm not going to whine that my saber was off and they had no right to attack me.

Alot of what you fellas are talking about is an annoying problem. Our server has some pretty simple rules to promote FAIR play..

No two people can fight if either saber is not drawn. Those who's sabers are not out are specifically looking for a duel. Every so often we get a llama that attempts to exploit this rule to save their @ss's. Turning off yer saber mid-fight for no other reason than to not die will get ya kicked.

Our rules have no loopholes. I can't spam every damn rule. If you do ANYTHING lame, I'll let ya know it.

However, revenge killing is not tolerated either. Simply find an admin, or hop on irc for 2 secs, and we'll get the problem fixed, I guarantee it.

My only regret is not being able to have an admin on 24/7. We recently added another admin bringing our running total to somewhere around 10.

Our server has consistantly been praised by the JK2 community for being one of the consistantly BEST FFA Duel servers out there. You'll never find a bettr group of regulars, and some of the best saberists, anywhere!

thats a great idea of rules...exept you dont need to kick a person because hes trying to run away mid battle, just let the other people chase him down and take him out, the same goes for people who fight a little, run away, heal, do it over again, and end up racking up points

I play on the WirePlay servers mainly, since my CL is the admin of the WP servers

The WirePlay FFA #3 server is NF, Sabers Only, and most of the time (even though it isn't an enforced rule) people don't attack people with sabers down

Even if people do attack someone with their saber down, the person being attacked (the attackee? is that a word? ) usually whips out their saber to defend themselves

I have to agree with some people, however
If you're on a level like Nar Shadda streets (in my opinion one of the worst maps in the game) and you're playing with people you DON'T know, then it becomes impossible to run around with your saber holstered, as people will just continually push, drain, grip, or saber you while you run back to the place where all the duellists are going

I feel that if someone wants to attack people when they have their sabers down, then why come onto a forum and complain about it (I know that in my case, if someone takes a swing at me with my saber off, which most of the time is very obvious they are about to do it, i just jump out of their way, ignite my saber, and proceed to chop them into little chunks of bitesize Bantha feed *Just like Darth Vader... "Don't Make Me Destroy You!" )

I would give you all the IP for the server, but unfortunately, i'm at work just now, and not in the habit of memorising IP addresses (one of my weaknesses, i know )

Thats my take on the situation, anyway...

Really, one should look for easy kills like people typing, or trying to dual someone. They tend to fight back less.

So, to sum things up, if you want to dual, make sure no one is around who will blast you, and don't get upset if the person you want to dual shoots you with a rocket, because you deserve it for trying to dual with people in FFA.

Do you have any fun playing or do you have to kill online to prevent a psychotic episode in real life?

i just played at the Happy Fun Ball server and also got kicked. i'm sick of these idiots running around with no sabers thinking their off limits. i'm fighting this one guy and kicking his ass, right, he keeps grabbing shields and health then after about 800 damage done to him he puts his saber away and runs, so i chase him and kill him. then he starts bitching about his precious no saber=peace ****. so i declare right there: "if your just standing around with no saber and you aren't waiting for a duel, i'm killing you." well after fighting the same guy and him running away minus saber, i kill and then BAM! Disconnected. insanity! luckily happy fun ball is the only server that has such nazi-esque rules, and i should have known better than to go in there in the first place.

I have to agree with you on that one flippo, i do sometimes leave people when they are waiting for a duel, but fighting, then putting away the saber when they're almost dead, thinking this will stop you from killing them is just stupid

You could have phrased that a little better methinks.

Dear me, sorry to bring down the tone of the thread with smut, but I couldn't resist.

Anyway, no attacking with the saber off? Hmmm, nah, go at towards them, saber on, if they don't light up or challenge you then I'd use saber throw to get their attention, after that if there is no response, knock em down and stomp their brains in.

To bow: crouch and look down.

If someone tirns off their lightsaber in FFA I just say:

"*breath* *breath* It is unwise to lower your defenses"
and chop his head off.

yet another use for DFA... if a guy runs off to get health when it gets low, just take 175 off at once.. then he dont have to worry, and you get the kill... DFA is my answer to all other lame tactics... somone draining you? they usually stand still to do it, dfa them

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I was playing on that server on Sunday Night, what a load of idiots that were on there. Nowhere at all does it say "Do Not Kill if Sabre Drawn". There was about 4 or 5 players all whinging and whining coz not everyone was playing by their rules, ON A PUBLIC SERVER!!. If you want to Duel go join a ****'in Duel Server not a FFA server running round like they own the place, calling people Lamers etc every 5 minutes. Begging people not to get the final kills when they reach the Killcount because they want to carry on Duelling on Bespin Landing Pad

These people need to get a life FFS.

BTW Dark-Sith you got some fine players in HoT, Raven was pretty much kickin everyone arse

Don't they have that typing thing above your head now? Haven't actually seen it yet. Why not just pretend to type if you're going AFK.

But AFK's deserve to be killed. Don't join a server if you're not going to play.

True True...

If someone's AFK with saber down, I leave them alone. Keep that jackass factor down and whatnot. However...If someone's got to go crap and leaves a gun/saber out i usualy just crouch on their head and weld them a new face or something fun like that.

DON'T go to sleep while playing! You don't go "AFK" while you're driving do you? What? Oh...you do...

okay, so I still don't understand this rule.

People join a server to walk around with no saber drawn? what fun is that. What if they just start throwing you off of high places, can you attack them then. It doesn't seem fair that they can attack you before you know if they are playing a game, or just walking around aimlessly on a server.

Also, in the scenario where they are AFK (which I understand to mean away from keyboard), why would they get mad if they die. If I have to take a dump, I wait till I'm dead. If I'm not dead, I just go take a dump, but then I don't expect to be alive when I get back. And who cares if I am. It's not like you have a limited number of lives.

I plan to continue killing everyone, especially easy kills like AFKs, and continue getting banned from every server I join until you all learn the importance of STAYING AT YOUR DAMN KEYBOARD IF YOU DON"T WANT TO GET KILLED.

son of a bitch.
