Actually his style will get him killed, as crow found out.
Thing is ask any NF player this question:
A guy whores heavy what do you do?
Medium/light/lunge his ass.
With the trace at 0 and the damage at 2 he starts a red swing and he's going to walk into 60-80 yellow swing or lunge that's fast enough to hit and back off before he finishes his swing.
You can do the "drain and swing" style in base 1.04 because you know your opponent can't cause more than 50 damage unless they gk or heavy swing you.
With these settings you simply wait out the 3 swing combo, ptk+lunge and the match is over before they can even drain you.
Using heavy in duels is very dangerous w/ these settings because a simple yellow side to side combo *will connect (no auto parry/block) and it will kill you before you finish your swings.
Honestly the most dominate style in this type of setting is a good drain/lunge fighter and to be honest I can only name 2 people in the jk2 duel scene who are effective “full force lunge whores” and know how to do it right in ff dueling.
But don’t get me wrong, even with the jacked sabers there is still a hell of a lot of kills coming from gk’s and such.
That is why I liked this, it gives a player a choice on how he wants to kill you, not forces him into only ½ options (gk/heavy shot).
It also makes you really bust out some serious defense because you have a hell of a lot more to worry about now.
Before a pk+knock down+ corner lunge combo did so little damage that I actually would take the damage just so I saved force (instead of pushing them back).
Now that ^ would kill you 90% of the time unless you are full health.
