If I understand you right, this can still be done by attempting an RDFA after your third swing -- you'll hop the distance w/o the dfa bit.
I didn't know that, thanks for sharing that bit of information.
Even if that turns out to be true, why did they make it impossible to do after the first swing? I can only assume it was collateral damage, and inadvertently changed.
I agree Red absolutely needed a nerf -- it was undoubtedly OP, especially in the right hands.
I can deal with the BP damage modifier being cut almost in half, the HP damage being reduced by 150, the Pblock perk being removed and given to Cyan, and the HP damage reduction being reduced and given to Jedi/Sith for free, but nerfing the already limited mobility of Red seems really rough. To top it off, the only compensation Red received was getting noob-friendly combos and no spinning. Maybe if they mildly increased the BP modifier of Red like they did with Cyan, these changes could be taken with a grain of salt -- right now they're somewhat unpalatable.
