    Good question, might have something to do with his busted and poorly healed nose? *shrug*
    The best thing about Kremlin posters is that as soon as you voice something they have to mention the US.
    Their awe and love for the US is truly great and I commend them for their love of their fellow men.

    here, I'll fix whiffle bat light sabers for you.

    Every jedi has a 99.9% chance to deflect a lightsaber. If it hits, you die instantly.

    You think you hated RNG before?

    Or even better!

    Arcade fighter-styled combat: you and your opponent must attack and guard in real time, with a single hit being a killing blow. Except this is an MMO. Whoever has the better internet connection wins, because they won't be fucked over by lag quite as badly as the other guy.

    What if I use my lightsaber throw? Can I be shot while my saber is twirling through the air?

    Yes, but you can duck if you're *really* good. But then again it's easier to duck a thrown bat than a bullet.

    What happens when someone throws a grenade at a jedi? Can I force-push it back automatically?

    Yes, because Jedi can use their lightsaber in one hand and use the other for telekinesis. It has been this way for decades.

    How can a Jedi/Sith survive Mortar Volley/Death From Above or Orbital Strike/XS Freighter Flyby?

    I'm aware. I assumed we were still talking about changes to the game? If so I want a minigame to fight over that rock that Sorc just lifted from the ground with the force. Also, when I kill a Jedi, I want to be able to pick up his saber and use it... stupid color crystal restrictions.

    It looks like you are looking for realism. Ever tried going outside?

    Certainly. Even a regular samurai sword will split a bullet in half, I've seen videos.

    The problem is that they're coming at you on a pace of ten bullets / second and traveling faster than sound. I just don't see even a jedi swinging his light saber that fast. If they could, then two jedi fighting with light sabers would be just a big blur of light.

    If you watch the movies, blaster fire is just slow enough to be visible, and rather inaccurate. Out of all the blaster shots being fired, they only have to actively deflect maybe one in 10 or 20. Foreseeably the Force would allow a Jedi to find the best path to advance on their targets while avoiding most of the blaster fire.

    Bullets fired from a conventional automatic weapon are certainly more accurate than that, but I imagine the force would allow a jedi to determine where his targets were aiming, and avoid most of the fire accordingly.

    Fair enough. I was thinking something more like a bolt action rifle since I certainly wouldn't want to be close to an angry sith if I didn't have force powers. I thought the question was related to how would the bullet react instead of being deflected by the light.

    And no, obviously the Imperial Elite Stormtroopers deployed on the Death Star are all mechanics and computer engineers, not Marksmen! :P
