Hey sorry I know that this should be posted on the rants and raves board but I felt more people would see it. WHAT IS HAPPENING TO JEDI OUTCAST!!!! THE MOST PEOPLE ON THE ZONE ARE BECOMING NEWBS! This game isnt going to have anyone on the zone (probally around when Star Wars Galaxies comes out ;) ) Another reasons this game is beging to suck is due to the blue stance. That crouch blue move is the CHEAPEST move know to Jedi Outcast (I think it worse than backstabn personally) I admit I do use it but not like most people. They just wait untill you do your move like the red jump move, or the yellow dive move AND THEN......BANG!!! They just crawl over to you and BLUE ALL OVER YOU! They don't even attack you unless you use a speacial move. Then I say "Oh My God you have no skill, you would be nothing without blue stance" and I get this response about 80% of the time "Well why don't you just don't use those moves!" Well becuase THE F****** DUEL WOULDN'T EVEN GO ANY WHERE BECUASE YOUR JUST SITTING THERE WAITING FOR THOSE MOVES!!! GOD THAT MAKES ME JUST WANT TO :fistpunch: THOSE PEOPLE!!! Anyone that reads this post youy have my promission to tell these people to GO **** YOUR MOM YOU LITTLE PEICE OF MONGOOSE **** SON OF A ******* FEMALE DOG!(you have the opption to use the alternet term for femal dog :D )I'll let you figure out what the stars mean Also if some only uses blue stance on you ask then to duel you without using the blue stance. 90% of the time you WILL WIN. Have fun
Revenge was here.

i use red and blue stance alot i get the same thing when i do special moves i only use yellow stance for regular attack not often ppl use special attack blue well bcuz it does the most damage and fast and ppl who just sit there and wait for you to come closer are just newbs you should kick em to death i tho have masterd the blue stance i will do it when you are running we are not dumb for using specials just running around swinging gets boring you should learn how to use blue stance good then kill

If you don't like it, figure out a way to DeSTroY and ANNiHilaTe blue stancers, probabbly the big reason why there's so many Blue Stancers is there's so many Red Stancers who do the big attack non-stop, so we found a way to kill them; Blue Stance
I'm too cool to Post

Well, I am a newb but lets face it JK2 hasn't really got a lot of exposure outside the Star Wars Community. As a matter of fact I buy games, mainly for multiplayer on the web, and it wasn't until a friend of mine told me about the JK2 mulitplayer action. I bought JK2 for the multiplayer action only. Let's face it, I originally thought JK2 was another *yawn* first person star wars shooter game. I think they should have made JK2 strictly dueling or light saber "mission game". I love it!!
As far as the red stances etc it's a part of the game. Yeah it's kind of lame to get slashed in half by one move only but at least u respawn and can have revenge!!! :naughty:
*sigh* it's times of distress like this that make you lose faith in the game. well when all else fails GO CHEAP NEWB ON ALL OF THEM AND LETS SEE HOW THEY FEEL cause when they do that to you they just give you permission to do the same and then if you win you might get a good laugh at the reaction of some
go ahead try it....try it NOW
Wow people acually responded............Thanks now I will be a bit cheaper to those NEWBS.}>
did it work yet???
Some n00b that binds specials

That crouch blue move is the CHEAPEST move Blue special isn't cheap. Attacking someone when they're typing... that's cheap. Attacking someone with their saber down... that's cheap. Attacking someone while they're on the ground after losing a saber lock... that's cheap (just because most of the time whoever has the lower ping wins the saber lock). Trying to make your opponent angry so he/she won't play right... thats not only cheap, its also lame & if you stoop this low the only thing you need more than saber skills is some sportsmanship (some player etiquette FFS); But blue special isn't cheap. The bottom line here is you can do anything they can do, don't complain because they do it better.
There are only 2 kinds of players I can't respect: a poor sport (the only thing worse than a bad loser is a bad winner) & a cheater. If you complain like this in-game (to an extent), that's being a bad sport. A real player will adapt, so that's what I recommend you do.
The blue special (along with ALL the other specials) have their ups & downs, ya they're damaging, however, they also leave the person applying the move open for awhile, so when they go to use the blue special on you, side step them & counter attack. Me, myself, I use a red downward slash to counter attack specials (not head to head). It's slower, but it does more damage than the blue special. As for the lamers that like to get you mad, try not to let them. You only give them what they want by getting mad about it, just try to look at the matter strategically. They want to piss you off to make you slip up, so don't take anything they say personally, just take into consideration their tactic & do your best to concentrate on the duel.
Don't get me wrong man, I don't mean to be rude & I certantly am not saying I don't complain in-game, but the point I am trying to make is I don't think your complaint holds water. Blue special is a totally good move; But I do think yellow & blue special are too dodgy. I think you should do the move & the client side sends 1 command to the server to make the special happen where now you have to send at least 3 commands to the server to make the move happen.
i think its a triangle of power im just having trouble finding out which stance beats what (like rock, paper, scissors)
Well Marker0077 you are sort of getting what im saying but I ment those people that just run away and only attack when you attack with a speacial. And since you cant saber throw you have to do the move or the duel would all be he or she just standing there or them just running. Its not fun. I just brought this topic up becuase I dont want to JO to die out like other games on the zone. I want it to last at least till SWG(if SWG even comes out...... :frog: I've learned a few ways to counter it doesnt aways work. I WILL CONTINUE TO :spank: those few that seem to don't understand why its dishonnorable to chat kill and I WILL :smack: those people that just run and blue stance. For all they runners, chat killers, and people that kill those without their saber drawn.....this is for you....:moon: ....enjoy :D
