This is a bone of contention in a number of threads Ive been following.
My server is set to low damage to make 'No Force, Saber Only Duels' last on average 2 to 3 minutes with equal ability players. I wanna know what the rest of the JK2 culture thinks on this matter. Feel free to comment as I am split between running the default damage values and running lower damage for the reason mentioned above.
For me any dues that lasts longer then 3 minutes is too long. I have my duel server set for a 3 minute time limit on duels. With the regular or increased damage settings one player will usually kill the other in 3 minutes or less. If not then the winner is decided by how much health each player has left. It gives incentive not to run away to much cause you don't wat to lose that way when you could have had a chance to win.
