Saber Throw in duels?

What's your opinion on saber throwing in duels?


It's my ILLUSION!

Vader used it in his duel with Luke. I don't care either way, just as long as they don't add healing because then it'd turn into one of those never ending DBZ fights.

Well I also don't like it,best for duels is to disable:
Heal
Protect
Lightning
Grip
Saber Throw
Deep cliffs

Now that is what I call a good duel.


When you slice a person, do you slice him with the fastest stroke, or do you forcefully incapacitate him?

Saber throw is canon? Why because Vader threw his saber ONCE to get Luke down from a catwalk? You think he used it as a primary attack as it is being used in this game? Especially with the throw, then pull exploit so that it's a guaranteed hit everytime? Sorry, but Vader used it to get Luke down off the catwalk, not as a primary attack to kill him with.

saber throwing in a duel is contradicting the whole idea of one on one combat...in this situation they might as well consider the saber throw as a projectile weapon...theres all the same concepts surrounding it.


The Power of a Jedi is not measured in force, but by the swing of their saber.

I think I'll change my answer. I was in a duel earlier where this guy kept spamming throw and it got annoying.

I think it's "unrealstic". You should lose your saber 70% of the time. (Like...try throwing your saber at Tavion in SP.)

I does too much damage compared to normal swings and hits more effectively (especially if used in combination with pull).

Spamming anything is lame --> Spamming throw (or the Bryar) is lame.

There is a reason why so many duel servers have throw disabled.

I want a duel to be fast and furious, not a throw-contest.

It seems that often when you get a good hit in, the opponent turns into a chicken. Every time you swing, he/she throws and backs up. Very frustrating. Personally I hate tossers.

On the other hand - why should someone stop spamming just because I don't like it? It's my problem, not theirs. But since the thread-starter asked for opinions, this is mine:

Spamming saber throw in (NF)duels = a boring duel.


Got Honourz? Great.. I hope you choke on it!

I r0xx0r all j00 nooberz that mess with me. You nooberz suXor out of my way or I eat j00....

I was on a server yesterday. If you're against saber throw, do NOT join the SF|Sanguis Frater duel server. It's ip is 66.150.29.215:27020
First off it's full force, which I don't mind, but not one saber swing was made. Not one. Each and every "duel" consisted of who could pull-kick-throw the best. Not one normal saber swing/move. It was quite annoying.

Blueyonder has two duel servers. Saber only and the only forces which you can spend points on are Saber Attack / Saber Defend / Jump.

They're pretty much the most popular duel servers in the UK.

Think that answers the question.
