I'm making this thread because I believe that open servers often become duel servers with one life and an objective, and the power of the force users making many of the gun users/classes less viable. I believe that the force users are simply more powerful without a more simple way of defeating any opponents with a lightsaber without on of your own. Although I understand that it is possible to counter, it doesn't mean that it is in any shape or form easy. When generally happens is that there is a poor sap that is on a 1 on 1 with a Jedi and if they move they are force pushed, and if they crouch or walk they allow the Jedi to get closer to them and thus closing the gap for a strike on said soldier. I understand that they have to invest in block points to achieve a kill in this example, but I think that the block points still shouldn't be enough to kill a fully maxed out individual, but rather a whole squadron or so of troopers to bring down a user's block points down considerably (assuming that said force user had full or close to full blaster defense points). I also understand that there are ways to kill a user by other mans (i.e. poison darts, flamethrower, etc.) But these are all very limited, and if a user has something like rockets or a grenade it can be pushed right back at them, and even if the user has no force push they still have much higher mobility compared to other classes and can usually (or at least more easily) get away from the a.o.e. of the explosive. I am not a developer though and do not know that mindset or development scheduled of them and therefore don't know if this would be a good change, in fact I'm not sure if I even have enough time in the game for it being appropriate for me to suggest something like this and so I would like to hear the thoughts of others (especially vets and devs) on the subject because I understand that it may be a completely game breaking change for Open servers as we know it. If you decide to post plz understand that I'm only interested in the growth of the community and mod, but I understand that it may be harmful in the long run.
