I always use the darth maul skin. I would have to agree it does look a lot better than the reborn. I'm not sure about this, but it seems that with speed and agility not only are the bots different, but each model if used by a human seems to be different too eg. (darth maul/reborn model seems to have a higher agility lvl than a storm trooper when using the saber. And yes both were set to weak config) I will also check and see if each different model requires different amounts of points to add a lvl to a force power.
as for what darth maul says, i'm not quite sure what you mean by that.
