 #4 - Force beats all - Posted by: jamesp24 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 02:09
Why bother blasting someone when you can just throw them of a cliff from a safe distance? No cliffs around? Just use LIGHTNING!

 #5 - Posted by: SweetPunishment (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 02:15
Force/ Hand to hand for me. Some heavy force mojo and a rare form of martial arts!! My style:cool:

Melee/Saber --Up close and personal.

 #7 - Posted by: Darth_Awec (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 03:12
Mostly sniping, although on Mb2 I really hate the Sniping classes, so I attack from range with less accurate weapons.

 #8 - Posted by: Lord_Infernus (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 04:27
Assassin: Sneak up on people and attack when they forget to watch their back.

 #11 - Sniper - Posted by: JasonJAD13 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 07:02
I am VERY skilled with a sniper rifle. Not exactly the best on JK3, but on BF2, I can land at minimum, 10 headshots, in one life. No cheats.

 #12 - other! - Posted by: swwar (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 07:45
i stay back till i want to attack or was found:rock::)

 #13 - As the Sniper says: - Posted by: Corr (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 08:07
"Boom. Headshot."

 #14 - Posted by: Sniper_Shot (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 08:50
I just take whatever weapon is called for in the situation. The ability to survive relies heavily on the individual's ability to adapt. In other words just give me whatever.

 #15 - Posted by: Cloud_3 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 09:44
err, its what weapons you use most/best, i believe atleast. melee/saber: its so much more sure to kill a person with a melee weapon than a ranged weapon. (well atleast in RL <.<)

 #16 - Posted by: Dean_Winchester (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 11:12

 #17 - Posted by: rattler20200 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 11:53
Mostly saber, but I won't hesitate to use a blaster, or anything else for that matter. I'll snipe, blast, mash, slice, dice, detonate, throw off a cliff, whatever. If it get's the job done, I'll use it. So I guess I'd be classified as a "Jack of all trades: anything and everything."

 #18 - whoa! - Posted by: Nickd97 (Member) on 10-18-2008 at 17:17
Man was that tricky! I use lots of those methods, like Demo, heavy weps, and force, but I had to pick melee/saber.

 #19 - I said Other - Posted by: MrVampire (Member) on 10-19-2008 at 00:54
I said other - it depends on the circumstances. In SP it depends on the mission, in MP it depends on the map and the game. Often it also depends on the oponent and about finding what they have most difficulty opposing.

 #20 - Lol... - Posted by: brucklorace (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 08:01
I picked CQC...

 #21 - The Perfect stratagy... - Posted by: revan4evr (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 16:20
JKA Step 1: set fields around base door. step 2: set up turrets around base door. step 3: grab a saber and charge TFU Step 1:set colour of saber Step 2: push troopers, electricute others, saber more yet, and wait for replenishment Battle Front (1) Step 1: CHAAAAAAARGE! EAW Step one: Build a MASSIVE fleet. step two: make deasent fleets for each planet that can be traveled to by enemies. step three: take your fleet hero and put it at your main fleet building planet step four: move ALL of you ground troops onto 3 or so different planets (ex: all into space, all to one, leftovers to the other, leftovers to the other) step five: when ready, grab large fleet and go to a planet you wish to conquer. step six: ENEMIES GO BOOOOOM! step seven move all ground fources into tiny strike teams, and move in on the planets defenses. YOU CANNOT SURVIVE THE FIRST TWO BATTLES IF THEY ARE HEAVILY ARMED. step 8 (FINAL STEP!!!): when properly weakend, take a large taskforce of soldiers to the planet and take them out with sheer numbers, they won't know what hit THEM!!!! >:)

 #22 - Other.... - Posted by: Mr_Bobert (Member) on 10-20-2008 at 17:55

 #24 - Posted by: Jedi_Man (Member) on 10-21-2008 at 05:03
saber mostly... if i get a sniper then i'll just snipe!

 #25 - Other - Posted by: Mkem (Member) on 10-21-2008 at 11:42
Stealth - Sneak past an enemy and then kill him in some unexcpected way (my fav would be self-destruct of the building hehehe), such as: headshot when he's not looking, cut a wire of a big cargo hanging above him etc.

 #26 - Posted by: Dark_Diablos (Member) on 10-21-2008 at 16:11
Tactical/smart assault please. Always up for working in a squad. Kick those lone wolves hell yeah!

 #27 - Honor's overrated, assault all the way - Posted by: Ender_920 (Member) on 10-21-2008 at 19:41
Nothing beats tactical prowess, not even the force. Eat blaster bolts Jedi scum!

 #28 - Saber. - Posted by: DarthPeanut (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 14:13
I would had choosen saber... But I will just swing it around randomly... So I voted to other. Psychic powers to made the enemies head explode or torture them with these overpowered abilities that looks like the force a little...

 #29 - sry for double... - Posted by: DarthPeanut (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 14:20
My Battlefront tactic is *shoot, shoot, shoot... cover and load...* etc etc. Uh I can be a hero! *Ends the war 4 minutes later* Medals: Almost all of them 4 times... :rolleyes:

 #30 - Posted by: Ataris21 (Member) on 10-22-2008 at 17:30
Nowadays I play with cheats, and do either of the following: A. Mind trick the surroundings of the enemy until they are all flocked together in a convenient location and kill them by using demolitions. B. Jump forward, Force Choke, Saber Throw, lots of blood. (Blood mods. XD)

 #31 - Posted by: Anakin12 (Member) on 10-23-2008 at 05:27
Force Only --Weapons are uncivilized.

 #32 - agreed #27 - Posted by: revan4evr (Member) on 10-23-2008 at 13:26
"Glory is of no use to the dead." <-- Darth Revan, tactical expert. BEST star wars stratagey (not just gaming, but all-around): step 1: dig 3 trench's surrounding your base step 2: place your trip mines in trench A, but in such a way that their far enough apart to not cause their own explosion (trench A is farthest from your base). Step 3: in trench B (2nd to the farthest from your base, between A and C) place evenly dispersed detpacks, again far enough away from eachother as to not set off a chain of explosions. step 4: in the trench closest to your base (c) place your soldiers. step 5: place 2 Merr-Sonn Sunfire 1000 close to the entrance of you base (one on either side of the main entrance), and 2 Golan DF.9 Anti Infantry Batteries or two proton torpedo launchers towards the entrance of the main hangar. step 6: stalk up your hangar with a squad of stealth bombers, a recon team, a few drop ships, 4 Air-to-Ground based vehicles, 3 anti-fighter squads, and 2 bomber squadrents. step 7: set up a shield generator near your base entrance, and 4 Golan DF.9 Anti Infantry Turrets to couple that. add three anti vehicle turrets and your set there. step 8: add three Surface-to-Air-Missle (SAM) based turrets towards the edge of your shield bariar (inside or outside doesn't matter), and two anti aircraft turrets. step 8: set up ATAT (not the actually model, but what it translates into: all-terrain-assault-transport) posts near the edge of your barriar. step 9: clear a landing pad for a shield generator, and a few anti-infantry, aircraft, and vehicle turrets. surround it with a guardshouse and a comtower and a crewsquarters. this is how you get off-planet meals. step 10: set up your medbay, and the mess hall, and everything else. step 11: land your ACTUAL personnell for the base. step 12 (final step!!!): lure your enemies to you with your massive fleet of capitol ships, 400 fighter squadrons and tons of bombers waiting. take out their fleet. they will follow standard proceedure and either surrender or land their transports, in which case prepare for invasion. send out your recon teams, let one be spotted and then fly back in the direction of your base. relay info to yourself, and wait them out. eventually they will HAVE to attack you due to the blockade you should have set up overhead. when defeat is imminent, get ready for the assault and the massacre! let them thin their infantry and vehicles with hopeless assaults on your shields. when it's thinned enough, deactivate your generator. send out your anti-figter squads, and wipe out air resistence. the take your remaining soldiers (about 200 for massive slaughter) and crush their remaining resistance. take a few hostage if you like. ^^}> . gl, and may the force be with you and your mindless massecre.

ps., when outnumbered, flanking support is optional.

 #34 - Posted by: IcePure (Member) on 10-24-2008 at 13:55
You could always use the death star. It only has two steps; 1. Travel to planet 2. BOOM

 #35 - Hmmm - Posted by: The_Crazy_Assassin (Staff) on 10-24-2008 at 14:07
I should redo this poll in a few weeks, but leave out the Saber option and make the question 'Apart from lightsabers, what's your combat style?'. Bah, that's just me though, so I doubt I'll do it.
