This is my idea of a better MP experience : pls. post your suggestions and be nice.
I am pretty much content with the current MP gameplay but just now i went back to SP and was blown away by how fun and very stylish the action was.
MP seems now to be very arcadish and what i mean is its kinda hack and slash although thats not a bad thing either.
OK my suggestion is if Raven would create a patch that would enable a server to choose bet. the present "arcade style" gameplay and a more "stylish SP like" gameplay that would be so awesome.
Why do u ask why "stylish SP like" MP rocks and things i really like about it?
Answers : It has a wow factor and reminds you of the saber fights in movies and has a better gaming experience IMHO.
Things I like to see implemented in this "stylish SP" MP gameplay are :
1.Bullet time (if they could implement this that would rule) - hard one i know but if they did - pretty cool
2.Slow mo when you execute a finishing move that kills like in SP.
3.The way the camera seems to focus in and out.
4.SP moves like cartwheels and being to dodge slashes or blaster fire by twisting the neck or torso or is it side bending? - not a function just an added animation but still automatic.
5.Other stylish SP moves like drawing out your saber and the saber twirl taunt.
6.The ability to throw instantly ur saber as u press the key and the ability to handle where it goes and how long it stays in the air like in SP. - MP saber throwing is kinda slow and not fast paced compared to SP
7.The thing where your saber gets thrown away or gets dropped and falls to the ground making you defenseless for a while.
8. When you backflip on a wall - it backflips you farther away. ( i did this on SP dueling with Reborn and it rocks coz after u backflip, you are behind them and u can slash them
9. I think thats it - maybe forgotten a few ideas.
Now im guessing - Raven took most of SP stuff in MP because it might be hard to implement like bullet time and would slow the game and maybe cause lag in games and they did it to accomodate the ppl who have slower pcs and 56k connection so they can run MP.
So my last suggestion is that this "stylish MP mode" be availabe and only playable with highend computers and broadband in order for it to work so if you have a nice pc and cable you will be able to enjoy this mode and the slow computers and 56kers can still play the arcade mode.
Whew thats all.
