Wink Effective use of the Jedi Confuse in Multiplayer

I just thought up an effective way to use the Jedi Confuse power in multiplayer. In another post, it was mentioned that Jedi Confuse might be useless in multiplayer. How would it work, exactly, you ask?
What if it worked as a cloaking device. Jedi Confuse would make the victim either:
  • Not see the Jedi or
  • Perceive the Jedi not as a threat
I'm not sure if this is force power is documented anywhere in some book I haven't yet read, but in multiplayer it could simply act like a cloaking device in which the victim would see only the mostly transparent silhouette move by, like the cloaking device in Elite Force. What do you think???


Back on the quest for the perfect sig!

I think it should be used to persuade nfers in team play that you are wareing their sides skin.
for dm it should mess around with his hearing, and visuals like the wierded out grenades in TFc..

It ought to change your skin to a nude women/goddess. Your opponent, if hes the typical online gaming dork, will be busy staring at the quake3 graphics quality breasts, thus giving you the opportunity to blast the hell out of your opponent while he crouches up and down in an attempt to crudely resemble pelvic thrusts..

..unless you're the typical online dork too, and in that case, you'll be staring at your char's bare ass too in third person..

I find your lack of pants disturbing.

Ehhh, that is all.

maybe it will make it where you cant see the oppontent using seeing on the map.

and what about persersion? evan though it wasn't much in mp, it was fun in sp, it jedi mind trick taking its place? i remember before jk came out and read something about how jedi used that just the same way there saying about jedi mind trick, so it seems like no persasion

A force power to make some one think you are not a threat in a DM? Gimme a break lol. If it's anything like persuasion vs seeing (when all the good players use seeing + map), the it'll be just another useless newbie power. Who knows though, depends on how they implement it in MP.

It would be cool if for team play, it made you appear to be on the other team, only to the people on the other team.

2 good ideas so far, cloak u from the map, [assuming there will be a map], and change yer skin to yer opponents color in team dm.

If there's no idiotic counter like seeing in JK, then u could do just about anything with it and it would be useful. I hope its a lil more indirect and subversive than *whooo i'm invisible!* or *ha! dirt in yer eyes! green dirt!*

That would be stupid. If there wasn't a counter then everyone would use it. FF games would just be a bunch of invisible people shooting at eachother.

mm I managed to cog a blind that removes the mapping ablities in jk in 10 minutes..
but combined with jks absorb n pull atm it would just make playing as a lighty even cheaper

plain invisible would suck. if their was no counter.. as well as being unrealistic.
however if jedi could see other jedi classes.. but nfers saw them as players on their side, or if it messed about with a targets vision and hearing it would be good.. but only in class based.
v jedi a mind trick is useless

I don't care how they use it, as long as it has nothing to do with Force Blinding. I always thought that was the stupidest power of all. Did it give anyone else headaches in JK?

You need friggin sunglasses when people use it.
