I nearly got kicked from a server for that, but I was able to 'splain myself during the vote and it didn't pass. Now THAT's honor! Judged by my peers!

I agree. Once he challenges you and enter combat, then he has the duty to finish it. That honour is his, even if it means his death. So it works out that if he powers down and get killed half way through, and then complain, he is basically giving up HIS honour.

The funny thing is, some people seem to see that as YOU giving up yours by finishing him off while his sabre is down. I don't get it.

Hell, many japanese samurais used to stick a sword in himself to reclaim his honour after losing it when he did something wrong in the past... now THAT is brave, and I'd give him back his honour seeing it. I don't think I'd have the stomach to kill myself if I were in his shoes.

You just keep getting your kills anyway you can. Wouldn't want you to actually EARN one.

You got no talent.

i never kill ppl when there saber is down or when they r typing cause its lame going for the easy points. only if they did it to me its of course: vengeance.

there r times i run around with saber down or am typing and a noob comes slashing at me with his saber. then its time for me to teach that lamer a lesson (read instant death). after a while they leave me alone, unless i want to fight.

I think it all depends really.

I only play on servers of respect and honour. And I don't care if people think that sounds silly, once you get into it its far more fun. Saber fights one on one with no force etc. it rocks.

Anyway, I rekon if your in a server like that, then attacking someone who has the Saber down or is typing is real lame as its not whats expected in that server, hell, if you attack two people saber fighting together, your out of order on a server like that. In servers like that the score board has no meaning, infact it often happens that the best players are at the bottom.

Where-as on a "normal" FFA server, those "rules" do not aply as people are playing differently, so attacking someone when there saber is down is more acceptable.

So it really depends on what server you are playing on.

However, I personly would never attack someone when they are typing, but thats just me. I think getting points in like that s just a waste and I'll not feel like I have earned the position I get because of it, it'd just be cos I was lucky to see somone who couldn't attack back. In fact I'd never attack someone with there saber down in a normal FFA unless I could tell thats how they fought.

it really is all very dependant on what server you play on. If you do something deliberately against what is acceptable on that server, then your lame and just ruining other peoples fun. But if its acceptaed by the majority on the server, then there is no problem.

Amen.

Yeah it definately depends on the type of server you are on snail is right. If it's a team ffa (e.g.) and you join and start slashing everyone to pieces 'for the sake of the team' and no one says anything there's no problem really when sabers down. (if peep typing then in my opinion still out of order) A few peep may find it annoying but they should show that they're typing if they dont wanna be attacked.

if you join a server that is primarliy peep walking, watching, having respectable saber fights and duels and stuff then attaking peep with saber down is lame as they're probably trying to watch a fight or duel.
There shouldnt be set rules. If peep ask you to stop then you should or you should leave to go to another server where peep wont shout at you. it doesnt take much really.

also it's true that it's out of order for peep to give up on a duel by putting their saber down cos they're pussy. Also in most servers if you're all out for death it would be lame to realise you got 10 hp and put your asber down merrily wondering around not getting killed til you can boost up to full again. That's lame too, so to summarise you should judge it by the type of server you is on.

yeah it depends really, when you start and do the bow thing (if your into that) then ok, but it is getting hard to tell cause you have alot of peeps now that have it off all the time unless you are close or they are striking. So now after the bow (unless the box is above their head or they say hold on) once they draw that saber, all bets are off. I made the mistake too many times of turning mine off too just to get whacked by some idiot thinking it was funny. So IMHO once you do your intial courtesies and draw that saber it is fair game, unless again you say hold on or have the box above your head. Of course I know peeps will take advantage of that too in time so it will turn into a damn kill fest, but I will just play on the better servers


Bowels in or bowels out? Oh your confused, well let me decide for you!
