Question Question on combat duel.....

Alright i have a question on the combat dueling. I saw the new trailer but with the low bandwith which was horrible....if you want to duel someone in lightsaber is this how it goes: slow motion, then u choose use lightsaber and thas it, it duels for you with random hits?!?!? or do u choose lightsaber and duel yourself with total control??? Im a bit confused right now and it better not be the first one or my excitement will decrease majorly!

I'm sad to tell you but your excitement then will decrease. What you saw is correct. However you will not have total control over the saber action. This is not an FPS like Jedi Knight II. You can't just "run and slash."

It is an RPG and your lightsaber moves are based on the skills or feats you have accuired throughout the game. Somebody else could probably explain this better then I.......

An allagory will make you better understand the combat system

Have you ever played any of Age of Empires (its an RTS)? If you haven't there are different building where you can produce units or enhance them, for instance, The Dock has several different types of Warships, one of these is a Fireship and every time you advance a level in the game (called ages) you are given an option to advance the Fireship (so it becomes stronger, faster, etc), when you pay a certain amount of gold, wood or both, all of the Fireships turn into Fast Fireships, making them stronger and faster. You see an enemy ship you send your Fast Fireship after the enemy ship, the two ships meet in battle, you have no control over how your Fast Fireship is going to attack him, you have to rely on the enhancement you have given it to beat the Enemy, but if the enemy ship has better enhancements you will have a lesser chance of winning, unless of course, he has a slow attack ship, and you have a fast attack ship, which even though the Enemy ship has stronger firepower your ship is fast and quick, making the Enemy ship very easy to kill.

Basically the human jedi in Kotor is the Fireship, but he must learn his enhancements not just buy them, and the Enemy ship is a Bounty Hunter (with loads of weaponry), but yet you are just a padawan learner but still can dodge, block, and kill the heavenly armed Bounty Hunter, though the killing of the Bounty Hunter may be long and tiredsome you can still beat him, and when you get more enhancements the killing of a heavily armed Bounty Hunter will be even easier and quicker as you enhance you skill over time.

I hope that helps Hooded-Jedi to better understand the Combat system

Oh i see, yes so my excitement level is still up then! If it were total control over lightsaber it would be pretty hard just like jk2 when you duel in single player. Anyways thanks alot Leemu and Glorfindel!
