[COLOR=Pink]well what i noticed is that duelling seems to be the new trend.. eveyr server i go on (well most) have force disabled and people duel duel duel... like come on duelling gets so boring.. i had my fun after 3 duels a day :P i couldnt spend hours duelling. i dunno i think people highly overrate duelling. they just do it because everyone else does.. where are all the ppers and ffers? im a pp-er and i really get annoyed by disabled force and people say using force is lame.. like come on the game is about learning how to use the force. i got nothing against duelling but people are taking it to far. using force isnt lame.. people only call it lame because they generally suck at it. and the only people i know that DO use force.. only know grip kick. like thats the easiest force move around. just takes away the fun of ff/pping i hope i meet some people soon that use the force and not just grip kick.[/COLOR]

I'm one of the duel people, and I also understand what you mean. Dueling is boring after 2539847592407359871029348750938745+ duels. :P

I also aggree that the game is to learn how to use the force, and if it makes you feel any better, I'm one of the force using jedi that don't use grip out there. :) :D

I agree with you Buffy. I don't know how people can spend so much time no Force, no guns, lightsaber dueling. It's OK as a change of pace, but to spend all of your time playing the game with 90% of it disabled? Boring. It's too bad people start spawning rancors and wampas to relieve their boredom, instead of playing other parts of the game that they are too afraid to try.

Download Movie Battles II, ForceMod III, or try CTF or Siege for a taste of how much more exciting and fun the game can be. You might get killed a lot at first but at least you won't be bored.

well i often spawn rancors and wampas :p its just funny to get knocked over by a wampa and then kungfu-ing it :P i guess my clan does a bit of everything.. duelling/ffaing/*laming*/rpg/siege except ctf then :S / we make up our own little games like hide and seek and stun tag/ races etc etc.. :) we just dont take anything serious only thing we focus on is having fun. even though we have rules. its more an defense against people that ruin our fun then anything else. we also use guns.. even t hough i disabled dark force (people with dark force generally tend to annoy people more then people that use light force) i still allow amempower.. so aslong as they dont abuse it they can use it :P

lol, sure I'll join a game with you, but I'm not 100% good. :P I get lucky alot though, so maybe I am kinda good. But this is crap (What I'm typing), so I'll say it simple:

Sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lol, my clan is like yours Buffy, however we don't do seige, and my computer gets messed up when I do try seige...but we have hunting! Whenever a rule breaking, noobish acting, really easy to beat person comes on line, we go hunting all over the map, smash them, break them, kill them, and lash them untill they leave. It's mean ( :P ) but they leave.

Anyways, PM or put up the IP or maybe I'll search for you or sometn'. :)

Maybe youall should do what we at Nemesis do. We have an area on the FFA/3 map for Dualing and the rest is setaside for FFA.

Why do you get destroyed? Are you at all interested in getting better, or are you content to stay stuck in dueling only? Instead of staying stuck in the same old same old, why not at least try to improve your skills? I'm just asking. And BTW, guys like girls who at least try to play real FFA or CTF, and respect the ones who are good at it.

I hope you realize you'll never get better standing around on a server being an "admin".

One thing you can do is practice against bots. Play Solo Game with ALL weapons and ALL Force powers enabled and fire away. Start with regular FFA (REAL Free For All, not stand around-chat-emote-NPC spawn-duel so-called FFA) with Padawan level bots. Conciously avoid using the lightsaber and learn how to use ALL of the weapons and Force powers the programmers put into the game. As you gain experience and skill, increase the difficulty level of the bots until you can do well against Jedi Master bots. Then try Team FFA and Capture the Flag (CTF).

Once you think you can at least not get "destroyed" playing against multiple opponents, try to find a server that isn't saber-only and disabled Force (if you can). All the idiotic saber-only no Force "no laming" amabusing amcheating chat-emote-duel JA+ mod servers have pretty much driven all the good full weapon full Force FFA and CTF players out of this game, but there are still a few left. Spectate the leaders and try to learn their tactics.

If you are interested in learning more about CTF, my website has an Education Page that has some useful tips and information. It even has information about learning how to strafe-jump, which will give you a big advantage over the 98% of players who don't even know what it is, much less how to do it.

Come spectate on my CTF server (67.15.23.242) or download and install ForceMod III and come to my FMIII FFA server (67.15.23.243) in the evenings or on the weekends when they are busy and see what some really good FFA and CTF players can do, and learn from them. The better you can play, the more fun you'll have.
