    Interesting What do you guys think about the new update to MBII?

    Honestly I think that the update was great, the saber system seems more free form and the flinch mechanic is nice great IMO

    I like it. Going to take a bit of getting used to, but I'm liking it.

    I know there are certain people who think it's the worst thing to happen since moldy bread, but they aren't very good at the game anyways. *cough* Prime *cough*

    This update is fairly interesting, only thing about it I don't like is that (for me personally at least) the only way to kill gunners now is to push them over or have them literally run at you/stand still. Otherwise they just run backwards and hold fire button, forcing you to when swingblocking deflect the shots instead of killing them.


    im still salty ;(

    Dueling could do with some serious tweaks imo

    Open mode sabering is ruined but its not the worst thing since moldy bread. I don't like it but I'm giving it a fair shake.

    People are saying it's forcing you to push/pull the soldiers like it's a bad thing. In personal opinion, I think this is good and encourages additional strategy on a soldier's approach rather than just charging into a soldiers fire, swinging your light saber like a madman, and hoping you don't take too much damage after killing him to move on with your day. I now find myself enjoying my sith class game play a lot more now. Especially when using grip on soldiers. Ooooh baby... I love sadism.

    Although flinching is questionable, overall the update is good. I think the introduction of imperfect block makes open mode dueling a little more dynamic / longer lasting, enabling lesser skilled duelists to enjoy the game a bit more. As a member of the lesser-skilled duelist group I no longer experience random BP losses for no reason. Also, W-swing red combos are teh luls.

    I'm liking it so far it made dueling a wi bit easier for those who are quick learners and yet the devs made the gunners douchier with that flinch crap. But yea it's pretty good.

    Flinch is a good thing. Used to be jedi/sith would just bum rush a gunner and slash while getting shot in the face and treat their hp as more or less expendable. Now you actually need a little bit of strategy, be it holding off until the clip runs dry, crouching underneath their shots, creative maneuvering to throw off their aim, or a Force trick like deflect, speed, or lightning. My only problem is that a lone Jedi versus even two competent gunners has a fair probability of losing outright, which is not the case in literally any other incarnation of Star Wars; film, books, or games. The fix for that would have to be a subject of discussion.

    The new models are great and the rest of the gameplay changes are at least palatable if not good... EXCEPT for the new dueling system. The new pblock zones are utter crap. Nudge is crap. Conservative saberists (especially using yellow) can often ridiculously prolong a duel. Long successful combos have been punished to a ridiculous degree and are now almost more harmful than helpful. Pblock stops combos, which is good. I really like that. With the old pblock zones, that would have been all that was needed to help people counter red or an aggressive yellow duelist. Get rid of the 0.5 attack nerf for combo hits and give us back the old pblock zones, instead of causing (and enabling) duelists to resort to cheap gimmicks. A duel should reflect the Jedi way of spending their entire lives training in the martial arts, honing their footwork, timing, skill, and technique. It should not be a collage of sucker punches. And saving the worst for last... sidewhacks. So. Many. Freaking. Sidewhacks. Any nub from base JKA can win a duel just by using blue and running around to cut off your foot.

    In my oppinion it's pretty good! Nothing really to complain about so far, just the disarming maneuvers that doesn't seem so clear from what I've heard by some players.
