2 sided saber splitting

this might have already been posted but i havent seen it so here goes

do you guys think that you should be allowed to split your 2 sided saber and use it as 2 and then put it back together again whenever you want?

i personally think it would be pretty kewl to be able to do it so you can mix things up in a fight

It does sound cool, but I'm not sure it would be fair in MP to be able to do that. It would mean people with the dualstaff have an advantage over other players because they could play two different ways, while everyone else is stuck with dual or single sabers. It might be nice to see in SP...

Actually, I think you will be able to use the staff as a single too.. and then everyone would go for the staff because they can use it as a single blade, two sabers, and as a lightstaff... wich sound VERY unfair to me.

I think in MP, everyone will either have 2 sabers or the staff.... and if you have the 2 sabers, youll just clip one to your belt when it's not in use, or turn off half the staff.

either that or youll have 2 sabers and a double bladed one all dangling from your belt... that'd put some weight strain on the ol robes

as much as i would love it, mp would be way unfare, but just think, isnt it already unfare? i mean, some one with a saber staff verses some one with a reg saber, who do you think would win, this will be interresting to see how it would balance out. for sp, i say bring it on!!!!! but whats the point when custimizing a chariactor, to pick the twin sabers??? al you got to do is pick the staff, and you can twin sabers too, or turn half of the staff off and have one saber, why would you pick anything other than a staff?? so i dont think they will put anything like this in there

Personally, I think this is all getting out of hand. Call me a traditionalist, but I'm a little nervous about everybody running around in MP with either a lightstaff or two lightsabers. Surely some people still want the old single?

I plan on using single most of the time. Or I might use dual, but I don't plan on using a lightstaff very often. Darth Maul was such a boring character, no personality. Unfortunately, the lightstaff is too Episode One-ish for me.

Well, I think a lot of people are bound to want to try out all the new toys, including the new sabers. I'm going to be trying out everything to see what I like and don't like, including all three types of saber combat. It all just boils down to personal preference at the end of the day, and I think it will add some extra spice to the battles.

I don't think he's supposed to have a personality...... after all he's what they call a "Sith", no emotions, except anger and hatred and all that stuff.

Anyways, I'd try all the styles, but I think I'll end up using dual sabers or single sabers off and on, although I know that I'll probably be in a server of 20 people, where 16 are going to be using the double bladed saber

For sure. I'll try them all out too. I'm glad they put them in. I just hope that I won't be the only one on MP with a single lightsaber.

That just wouldn't feel like Star Wars...

I hear what you're saying, and I too hope we don't end up with a mutltitude of players using just the dualstaff. I'd hate to see us get into a situation where people start setting up 'single-saber-only' servers and the like...

well if the strategies for useing each are different and the moves are a lot different then its all gonna boil down to who likes what, I can see equal amounts of people using each one, I am gonna stick with single no matter what.

As long as one style doesn't have advantages over another, I'm perfectly happy with people using what they want. I just don't want to be penalized for using what I want.

yeah it'd be a good cheat. i hated putting in cheats in jo because it'd kick everyone off the severer.

Well, there must be a reason why every jedi in all the movies used a singel saber. I mean, if there isn't something bad with them, why wouldn't all the jedi's that went to Geonosis have two sabers? Logically you should be able to block twice as many bolts with two sabers. And even cover your back with one while running forwards. So there must be something that just isn't good with two sabers.

i reckon light staff and dual sabres should have reduced blocking capabilities against blaster fire, but better defence/offence against single sabre. that would make team games more interesting... as well as co-op.


umm, yeah. so... stuff.

Have you seen the new 'gold guy' animations on the LEC E3 page? It looks like the blaster blocking was pretty good.....though I can't imagine it being better the one saber alone. It still looked much better then I thought it would.

I think the goldguy animation is just for fun... Why would you be able to connect two single sabers?? Takes all the fun away...

I hope you can't have all the sabers available at the same time, so you must choose which one you want, not change to duble sabered when you're in a fight...

I agree. I hope you have to choose which style you want to use. I think it would be overkill if you could be a master at all styles.

I agree, in my earlier post I was simply suggesting that the blocking looked much better then I thought it would......since we have never seen it before [not in the movies anyway]. I don't think we'll be able to connect the sabers either.

I would think that one would have to choose a style and stick to that.......only be a master at one different combat stlye at a time.

from what ive heard the only way to be effective with a 2sided saber is to put constant pressure on your opponent(s) because you dont have very good defence with it
no idea about blaser shots though

Well in reality it would be easier to block blaster fire with a lightstaff cause it covers more area and requires less movement to block, however Raven is probly gonna make all sabers equal when it comes to blaster fire. Man I would have liked to see Maul block some blaster fire with his, that would have been sweet, I wonder what moves he would have made to do so..??

i think maybe the option of a single blade to boost defence against blasters could be good, or maybe just use agility and speed.

I dont no about every 1 elese or whever any 1 elese has brought this up, but in the game your "supposed" to be able to combine force attack ie throw and attack if this is right it would mean staff sabers would become well pathetic and so would single sabers as haveing 2 sabers would have a distsinct advantge ie been able to perform to types of move.

any way ill be using 2 sabers or 1 no matter what i hate the maul type sabers i think they suck and r over gloryfied.



Let the force flow through u

1 more thing were all going on about hoping that the light staff won't be to dominating but if u look at the screen shots most of them r of a jedi using a duel bladed saber so i dont think there will be much choice on what saber is dominant or not.

1 thing that maybe be decent though would be for a duel bladed saber to be choped in half and remained that way at least till the end of the mission or u get back to the acadamy. and the same could also hapen to having duel sabers but u could lose 1 meanin that the single saber will allways have to be masterd or respected by players at least

Nothing is going to be dominant, they are all going to be balanced out, like everything else.
