So, in my clan, I will need to do trials soon, I must be able to fight vs all styles. But I would like to have an efficient tactic to fight against the spam sabers... duals, and staff. Got any tips to fight against those type of saber with SINGLE SABER?

Yeah. Don't play on a mod which alters the hit detection and damage application, thus making staff and duals insanely overpowered. You want a mod which has baseJKA hit detection and damage application. Preferably baseJKA itself, but JAE, ClanMod and the latest xMod are decent choices since they don't fux with the hardcoded stuff.

Other than that, keep your distance, maintain a cool focused attitude, play the defensive and only go on attack when your opponent leaves an opening. The good ol' baiting tactic works good too, if you can pull it off.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Thx, that's what I need, basicly, keep distance and wait for the other to attack. It's on a ja+ server though.

Then try like hell not to get hit, as the alterations to the damage calculations and hit detection leave staff and duals insanely overpowered.

Honestly, after trying the game without JA+, I wonder why the heck anyone likes that mod. The few good features aren't worth having the combat system seriously messed up like it is....

Well here is a tip... for both ones that usually works for me... And pretty much very good

Duals are faster than a Red Style single but they cannot much the strenght of it... If a player is fighting you with duals use a jump technique... Jump away from them let them come behind you and try to hit there back... If they make a mistake of using KATA or the lunge attack or the dual twirl than be sure to be smart On KATA use a Red Style Jump attack or a Red Slash... But from the top to the bottom... If you perform the last wait till the twirl is almost done... If they lunge step aside and use your side slash... If they perform the dual twirl attack the back... You will get small amount of damage if you are to fast or just to close but you can manage to keep it as low as possible... Duals is mostly about moving in and attack fast but there specials are just not good... They stop you from moving... So basicly try to dodge the attacks and hit with the side slashes of RED... Also a good tip is if the servers settings aren't to overpowered to use BLUE sometimes... People think it's weak but on my server I can own any slow weapon or any weapon which is pretty fast with Blue... It's more powerfull than you think... Don't keep using it if it is for trials though... Also another thing what you should try is to change the basic corner were you attack from... Most people go from left to right... The other way is basicly strange to most fighters...

Against Staff... this is a bit harder since Staff is basicly the greatest in spamming if you are such a person... The most moves of staff are to strong for singles... Kinda hard to hit a staff user... Best is to dodge them and attack them from the side... Use jumps to distract them around... If they BF... Try to keep your distance and try to time the LAST part of the BF... Than hit full red downslash on it... Will have a LOT of damage... Also watch out for staff kicking... Some people can do one hit kill with such move... (There you have the overpower glitch again)... Anyway mostly against staff is to keep distance and move in from the back or back sides... Less chance to get hit...
