GraphicDueling is good. That's the main attraction of the game, lightsabers and the force. Take away those things and it's a very very average FPS. I'm not afraid of action, I'm in a Call of Duty clan.[/quote]

Hmm... Hypocrisy? Oh well, I get that with most Saber Code-driven players all the time. "Oh, I'm not afraid of getting killed in a video ga--" And you get struck down. "Lamer!" Typical response from a JK player Saber Code-driven. Of course I could be wrong with you, and if I am, I apologize. But there's only one way to find out, and that's if I find out what servers you regular in and if I observe you playing...

[QUOTE=Graphic]Lightsaber duels isn't something you can get anywhere else, it's unique. Playing CTF etc. with guns is a waste when there are SO MANY better FPSers out there.

And that's where your opinion contradicts truth. If you ask me, it's a waste of time playing 20% of the game all the time, as you'd be mutilating FFA's original purpose, and destroying the game faster by screaming "Lamer!" each time you're killed by someone playing the game the way it was meant to be played, celebrating if an admin abuser "plays around" with this "lamer" and kicks him off. All-weapons FFA, Team FFA, CTF, Duel, Siege, etc. is a fun way to play. You have guns, you have lightsabers, you have the force. No other games outside of the JK series has that, which makes it unique and more fun than most usual FPS games. If there had been a lot more servers supporting this, it would've actually helped the community live years longer. I'm thinking it's going to die around this year. And if by some miracle the Honor Kiddies don't kill it off this year, then definately sometime January next year.

I said I like to duel. If you want to bash JA+ (which is more or less what you're doing), I'm not gonna stop you. The Nazi admin crap is out of hand. It was BS in JK2 and it's BS in JA.

That's good. Especially for the servers running the Duel gametype. I just don't understand the fascination of dueling in FFA servers rather than in the dueling gametype. Is it the maps?

Actually, it's not just that: My rants also speaks out against the so-called "role-players" and Saber Code-followers in this very First-Person Shooter.

Something we agree on. But just remember this: Had it not been for the appeal of jumping around and doing nothing but chatting and occasional dueling in Free-For-All servers (which baffles me), JK2/JA would've had a better chance of surviving longer, as more would see the fun of using force push at an enemy using a Repeater's secondary weapon and smashing him, blasting someone else by deflecting blaster bolts with a lightsaber before being sniped from behind and respawning. Isn't gameplay like that exiting?

well i think duelling can do alot of fun, as long as the opponents stay a chalenge, if you keep defeating the new ones, its no fun, but sometimes you can get really good duels of the pro's, thats what it is all about, and ofcourse, some people use force the lame way, but since im a light side user, i only use stuff as absorb, heal, protect, seeing, you know the protecting stuff, not really for attacking, but instead i can counter all other stuff :)
