(From another post, but relates to this topic)

#2) Attacking people with their sabers undrawn/Sneaking up on people with undrawn sabers & attacking. Now this one is debatable. I say it's lame just because when you go to type you should A: back off from the duel B: undraw your saber C: bring up console/quick chat window.

When you are dueling, you don't always know if you are playing a real player, or some lamer who gets his kicks off of cheap moves. When someone undraws their saber, you/they should back off because usually that means they are about to type, perhaps they need to go AFK for a sec (maybe just need to get a drink from the fridge or go to the restroom real quick), maybe they need to clean their mouse real fast, a cat is jumping on their lap, whatever the case may be, its just my personal opinion & understanding that you shouldn't attack someone with an undrawn saber, nor be sneaking up on someone with an undrawn saber then attacking.

Attacking from an undrawn saber just looks decieving. If you are fighting, your saber should be drawn.

One of the worse things the llamas do, imnsho, that & chatkilling.

But then there are those who will callvote-kick you for it, but not me. If the game allows it, then you can do it, whatever. It makes you cheap, I have no respect for you, but if you get me then, well, maybe I should've been paying more attention. I'm always a bit wary, but I'm prepared to give the benifit of the doubt, THE FIRST TIME.

I will attack people with hilted lightsabers, but I leave people alone that have that console box above their head. Except for Cal, but that's another story. :D

I wouldn't attack someone who's chating. Other than that you're fair game. The people who annoy me the most are the so-called "honrable" fighters, who seem to think they're better than everybody else just because the don't attack people with sabers down. Well the truth is guys you're not cool, you're just pathtic. You yell at people for using the red special move(something I've never mastered)but if you wheren't supposed to use it they woudn't have put it in the game.

Maybe it's those people you should call lame...

*I* call them Lame.

Especially when they decide to start kickvoting ppl off of PUBLIC servers for not kowtowing to their so-called "code" :rolleyes:

I don't consider myself better that anyone else - in fact, I regularly get my *rse 0wn3d - but Lame is Lame.

See this is what I'm talking about. Yesterday I had to fix my sound, so I undrew my lightsaber & backed off for a sec; while I was standing there this guy came up & attacked me. It was at this point (lol) I realized I should have clarified I hit my "hold on for 1 sec please" button (the guy was cool though, he wasn't trying to be cheap).

This is exactly what this thread is about. Clarifying the slight miscommunications out there (specifically fighting with undrawn sabers). I realize where your coming from Xenomorph, there are lamers out there who will attack you when you lower your gaurd, but I do not agree with attacking people who have undrawn sabers, unless they're moving around & they appear to be playing, then it's time I hit my "DO NOT have your SABER DOWN if you are FIGHTING please" button (I have allot of binds, I know, but they're useful).

The morale here is, again, HAVE YOUR SABER DRAWN IF YOU'RE FIGHTING. It just plain looks decieving, it looks like you are trying to get someone to lower their guard so you can attack which is TOTALLY cheap & can easily classify you as a poor player. THERE IS NO ADVANTAGE TO FIGHTING WITH AN UNDRAWN SABER aside from a cheap move, so why fight that way.

Usually when I get a guy who undraws his saber & just stands there I say "?" or "FIGHT PLZ". I think what to do from that point is obvious.

Which one is it man? At first it sounds like you agree with me, then it sounds like you agree AutoCept. Aren't you contradicting yourself here?

Let's make no miscommunication about this, never did we say we are "better" than anyone else, thats for the fight to decide :). Saying that we said that is your assumption & you are putting words in our mouth. Furthermore, it's TOTALLY RUDE for you to stand there & call people pathetic when the only thing they are trying to do is HAVE GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP. What is your rush AutoCept? Why is it necessary to fight people when they are not ready (which having your saber undrawn means, or at least should).

Now don't get me wrong, again, I realize there are cheap wankers out their who will attack you when you lower your saber to "honor" them needing to do whatever it is they are doing (get a soda, go to the bathroom, get the cat out of their lap, fix their sound, whatever), but why do you have to lower your guard just because they lower theirs? Why do you have to rush the fight? Why can't you just let them do what they have to do real fast & fight when they are ready.

The point is ATTACKING SOMEONE WHO ISNT FIGHTING IS CHEAP & it APPEARS (could be wrong) THAT THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING & then on top of that, having the audasity to stand there & say something like "there is no honor in this game" or something like that, maybe theres no honor or sportsmanship in your game man, but theres tons of both in mine.

I don't mean to be rude dude, but I find your comment rather offensive, but I'm okay with it this time just because you saying that we're "pathetic" because we are trying to put "honor" & sportsmanship in the game so ironic its halarious.

I guess the question here really is are you a player, or are you just playing?

Originally posted by AOJ_BahamutZERO Well...its' a tough choice...it just depends on the server rules, if there are any

See, I just don't agree with that. I think it varies on player, not server. Perhaps you mean the players on the server, I don't know; But I surely wouldn't base that decision on the server rules.

I try to be a players player, meaning, if all the players on the server wanted me to fight by their rules, but the host says no way, I would probably go with the players. Even if it means me getting banned.

Yes, I'm not contradicting against myself or not! :D

Sorry, let me break it down:-

Like you, I think attacking people when they're chatting, or obviously not fighting, whatever, is lame & cheap. However, you want to play like that, fair enough, I don't.

Like AutoCept, I think them that put themselves up as better than the rest of us because of their "code" of "honor" are just as lame, but then again, if they want to play like that, fair enough, I don't.

But what REALLY gets my GOAT is those that try to enforce THEIR way upon others, on PUBLIC servers! On their own ground, totally fair enough, they can do wth they like. But in the outside world, I don't want to get mangled just because I try to play fair, or kicked just because I don't bloody BOW low enough for some people!

Btw, Marker? I'm not saying you belong to any of these types at all, I'm talking totally generally here, and thanks for starting the thread, man.
