I went on JK2 just to see what it was like and I asked them why they did not upgrade to JKA and they said that JKA sucked that it was just Kata, Fan and no skill. Being a JKA Base player that viewpoint is a bit insulting as all I seen on JK2 was spamming and constant dfa's. Though they are sorta right in a sence a lot of JA+ servers are like that now.

JA+ is the mod that is closest to JK2 but it is the very mod that JK2 players seen and made the determination that JKA sucked (Ironicly JA+ MP was trying to be like JK2 in sence of server damages, emotes and other commands). Yes as you can see from my posts Im no big fan of JA+ but even JA+ is a upgrade from JK2. The more options available to you in JKA is more than enough to make it better. Though do you think in some ways JA+ ruined JKA's appearance to new players?

Another JA+ rant thread lol...

No I don't think it ruined JKA's appearance to new players, if they enjoy it they'll play it.. if not they can search for other servers quite easily.

I started off as a JK2 player and moved to JKA in late 04 onto a JA+ server and I've loved it ever since so no i don't think what you said is accurate at all... just about preference as I keep mentioning...

I never played Jedi Outcast Multiplayer much offline and I never played it online, so I can`t tell if JaPlus is just an upgrade to it. What I can do is support what SiLink here always says: "If you don`t like JaPlus, don`t play it. Play what you like." However, people don`t want to play what they like. They want to go with the masses and play what is popular (why am I sensing a Borg analogy here?). And let`s face it - JaPlus is popular. Some people realise sooner or later that JaPlus isn`t their "thing", but leaving to play Base or another mod would mean leaving friends you made on JaPlus server(s) and most people don`t want to do that, so instead they come here and rant how JaPlus sucks. Noone is forcing new players to play JaPlus. Every player has his/her free will and can play whatever he/she wants. But, I guess it`s easier to just plug yourself into the (Borg) collective and go with the masses than to think with your own head. :clueless:

Having started playing JK2 MP first before playing JKA, I can say that when I first played JKA I didn't like it at all because of the substantial changes made to the sabering system. It really was a huge change, and I guess as JKA was meant to be an expansion to JK2, people didn't really like there being such big changes. JA+ in no way made it similar to JK2 at all - sure the damages were the same, but the blocking, the feel, it just wasn't a "JK2 upgrade" - it felt wrong. I've played JKA for a while now and I've come to accept the changes and learned the quirks of sabering in JKA but I still prefer JK2.

I think it also has to do a little bit with what you are used to. Before I tried out Jedi Outcast, I had played Jedi Academy for like 2 years. So when I entered JO multiplayer I thought ''What the hell is wrong with my saber?''. I couldn't handle the fighting at all, and so I didn't really like the game. I guess it's the same with people who are used to Jedi Outcast.

I never played Jedi Outcast Multiplayer much offline and I never played it online

Huh? :P

Why "huh"? What`s so strange about it? You said it yourself; ''What the hell is wrong with my saber?'' I just don`t like JO saber mechanics in Multiplayer, so why should I torture myself with that? Jedi Academy is much better in that field, so I like playing JA Multiplayer. I may not have much time for it, but I like playing it anyway. P.S. I preffer Star Trek games. Elite Force and Bridge Commander are my favorites. =p

Ye you can play Multplayer either over a Lan or create a game and just play with bots.

I was just saying that I have tried JKO and did gave it a fair chance and after a little while on it I sort of liked it but every aspect of JKA is superior in my opinion. Most people who are left on JKO base there opinion of JKA on one of those all out FFA JA+ servers where everyone spams and katas like crazy. They never took the time to see the skillful aspect of JKA (Yes mainly BaseJKA). Or even other mods for example Lugormod.

g_forceRegenTime is not just for JA+ so if a base server had that set then new guys could spam specials too... it isn't just JA+.... Most of the things you say come across as facts Tanith but they are just opinions...

The people who play JK2 prefer it over JKA... like the way I prefer JA+ over Base which in your mind (according to your posts) is strange because JA+ isn't "how it's meant to be played"... It's all about opinions and if they find JKA bad then let them play JK2... :\ Nothing wrong with that.

I do agree that moves like fanning are very very annoying and may turn people away from JKA since they're used to JK2... but it's their choice and opinion which you seem to keep forgetting....
