Voting ONLY TAKES A SECOND, vote please.

I was thinking we should add a CVar to Duelers that changes the max damage for blue lunge because I just think 60 is too powerful of a max damage for a lunge. It's just way too quick of a move to do that kind of damage, even if it's not every time.

We do not feature being able to change specific damages in Duelers like you can with JA. Joining a server & finding someone who changes DFA to 1 damage is just lame (or almost any other damage change). A lot of people do stupid stuff with that kind of power, so we do not give it to them.

We do however, give them the availability change the back attack damages by presets. The first is the 1.03 damage settings, the second is the 1.04 damage settings & the third is inbetween the 1.03 & 1.04 damage settings. This would be similar to that with lunge.

I'd say 59.9 is a MUCH Better damage setting than 60, 60's WAY too high

DFAs are too much abused, so their damage should be lowered. I know, this'll stray away from the realistic characteristics of a lightsaber's ability to cut through most anything, but lets be realistic in a gaming sense here: Most gamers playing JK2 are probably abusing DFAs, or Blue Lunges or such. I see it most of the time I play JK2. That's why I think the damage should be reduced. This'll probably also reveal the true skills of an opponent and his or her ability to use his or her lightsaber well. Most people should use a balance... Seldom-use DFA/special moves, and switch betwen blue, yellow, and red stances, being equal sometimes and mastering the weapon.

Well this is not on DFA damage & it wouldn't be, there's nothing wrong with the existing settings. DFAs are predictable 9 out of 10 times & are very easy to counter with blue lunge.

DFAs should be damaging considering if you miss you are leaving yourself very open for an attack. Just lunge then left-right manuever in blue, sometimes that will knock around 100 damage. All in all, you can easily flip the damage they are trying to bring on you in blue.

I am a NF dueler & I play on DarkSide a lot. If you are having problems with DFAs, check them out & watch us play sometime. DFAs are no big thing.
