Completely random things I don't like with Jedi Academy 1. JK3 itself. After a few years, I joined a server the other day. I found it odd that instead of fighting, they just stood around talking. Something which could very easily be done with Xfire, or whatever. Very soon, someone else joined and started flip kicking the standing people. Its as if the whole server just went "*GASP*" that they couldn't believe he was actually, truly, playing the game it was meant to be played. It's unfathomable, i know. Of course, he was instantly subjected to being slept and bombarded with so many colorful binds of "do you know what you did wrong??!!" and "NO LAMING! LAMING IS WHEN YOU FAIL TO GET MY COFFEE WHEN I SAY SO blady blady blah...." that they flashed by faster then the stock human being could even read in the first place. This never happens in BF2. Heck, it also doesn't happen in 2142, CSS, and practical every other game in existence. You actually go and fight and have fun fragging in those games. 2. Uber force regen. Seriously. Whats the fun if you always force jump, or push or do moves? Wheres the strategy? I mean, in the movies even the jedi get tired. This doesn't help the fun. 3. Servers that disallow macros. Such an odd one, isn't it? Yeah, macros. I guess servers disable them because people can use them to crash or something. Which probably wont happen anyway, because how many people actually care about temporarily crashing a server to a dieing, bad game? Dunno. I like to play around: meaning i like to find out what every command does and what sorts of combos i can make. That doesn't happen too well with macros off. "But," i hear you say "the noobz will come and auto-DFA and auto-poke and everything!" Yes, and if you are good at the game, this shouldn't be too much of a problem. Oh, and want to avoid this problem altogether? See complaint 2. Those moves use force, which, heh, they happen to have an um limited supply of. Yep. Thats about it. Why do i even bother to post and help people if i hate the game? Because i believe that, in the tiny amount of life this game has left(I.E-it has 326 servers going, compared to BF2 which has about 1835 servers, or CSS which has 4579 servers) it still has a chance that some people might make the turnaround and play the game normally. Thank you. Good night.
I know what you're talking about. That's pretty much what makes me hate this game as well since about 90% of the servers are just about what you described in your post. People seem to forget this game is a FPS. Also doesn't help that we have modders trying to turn it into some sort of RPG. As crazy as that sounds.
As far as FFA goes, this game is a lost cause.
I just can't get into RPG stuff on a jedi game. :o
I agree on how the game was made for ffa. When I bought the game last year I though it would be like unreal torunement with lightsabers... Well I was wrong. The frist couple days I learned I was a "lamer" and "nub". I started to roleplay and well... Although we still have mb2 to kill each other on. Viva FPS?

I know what you mean, it's really annoying in several games.
Only noobs use nub man :P I like the way the game currently is, but that's just me.
