Please Don't Kill The Duels

The first thing that popped into my mind as soon as I saw the fast paced mad saber swinging action in an E3 clip was: Oh man. Just think what duels are going to turn into now.

I remember in the beginning JO didn't get it right. Butt pirate backstab whores, kickwhores, ect. You remember all the names for the abusers. But now dueling has transformed into a contest of skill. It takes lightning quick reflexes and sharp aiming to be able to compete with the best of the best. The reason why I am worried about JA ruining duels is the fact that the gameplay will be so fast paced there will be no strategy involved like there is now in dueling i.e. Okay he is doing a right red three hit combo. Now if I do this combo at this distance in yellow I will easily knock X hp off of him. I'm afraid JA will just be a mad swingfest with no skill involved. Someone tell me I'm wrong. Please.


Note: When I speak of duels I am talking about No Force Saber Only duels.

when I NF duel I just stay in light stance, hold down mouse1 and "RAAAAGGGHHHHHH!!!!" at the guy.

I win about 1/2 of the time.

What does that say about NF?

I don't know.... you suck at it maybe?

Actually... I will give props to some of the NF guys,well, the guys back a few months ago. Some of them spent a ridiculous amount of time into one of the most boring game aspects of all time. That deserves something.

maybe a kick in the balls...

I think Redmaster has a valid point. The same thought crossed my mind a few times while watching the gameplay video. Anyway, we can only really guess until it is released.

Is there some reason you guys just can't talk trash to each other in IRC or some other IM chat room?

How about talking about the subject of the thread? Now that's an idea....

you fear my NF 1337ness don't you?

yeah I thought so.



/edit I don't like to talk to B on AIM, he makes suggestive comments that make me feel uneasy.

But back on topic, sabers suck now, make them stronger.

So, how exactly are you on-topic by posting? Huh? Huh?

And stfu, saber newbie unnamed. I would come drop/own you on the shock server but I'm banned.

/edit: you know you like to role play on aim... And as far as the topic at hand goes: service counters should not be made of wood. I mean.. think of the germs.

That shouldn't be too difficult to figure out since I'm the moderator of this forum.

Both of you better just quit this crap and Break, you are | | this close to a temp ban, I suggest you change your ways.
