    For a second, I thought it was saber v gunner and my hopes were crushed.

    Good for dueling I guess.

    I'll see y'all in another 9 months with the only new change being that sabers are now 0.5cm thicker

    Someone broke the Anti Cheat and sent it to the production. Amazing.

    Everyone is being kicked for "
    Game running unrecognized protocols!". Except for me, cuz I don't use the launcher(I'm Ubuntu-user).

    I had to disable g_AntiCheat on my servers to allow players to play.

    Good for removing the insta-counter thing, but now it's impossible to perform a simple parrying...

    Parrying hasn't changed at all so it shouldnt be any harder to do
    edit: Pepito is right, parrying cancels out for some reason most of the time

    Wait, did my defence 1 just get buffed? 1.2 x sounds like there is only little difference between lvl1 and lvl2 when it comes to dueling, especially if old defense 1 was 1.4 x

    I can't open up console ingame it just freezes and I can't see servers. Did you add something to prevent non retail versions of jka or is my client just fucked up?

    Yes, I wanted it to be more utilized in open mode without being super gimped in saber vs saber. 1.2x is like every bodyhit is an interrupt, it's definitely a disadvantage vs 1.0x but now skill can overcome more and you can play a def 1 force heavy build without being completely useless in 1v1. I think 1.4x is too much, especially with BP regen on PB removed.

    I was against that and will change it back if i get the chance. It certainly is too much of a buff given how it's half the point cost, and too inconsistent with the 1.6x FP drain vs guns that def 1 has.

    Yeah, but you also ruined dueling for almost a year and I hope you don't get to change it back. Maybe if it's too much it can be at 1.3 or 1.25 but certainly with the removal of bp regen on pb it needs to be changed from 1.4 to something lower, otherwise it's a complete dud in any saber fight. Better to enable more ppl to run diverse builds and have fun with force powers. If u lock them into getting def 2 or be useless in saber vs saber, nobody is gonna play def 1.

    Hey cool, updates. How about fixing flinch so saberists aren't so stupid over powered? But of course all you guys care about is dueling so this will never be addressed.

    @SeV well I guess it makes sense if pb receiving bp was removed. I am not particularly good dueler but I dont have that much hard time using def1 in public. Just dont buff it too much so that you increase the point cost which results in ruining all the fun force heavy def1 builds.
