  • Analyze my custom lightsaber fighting style
    by /u/CyrusNavarre on January 2, 2022 at 8:34 am

    This is not a glorification post, I would like a clear analysis on everything in it. I’m genuinely fascinated by it. Looking forward to finding out it’s flaws, strengths, interesting quirks, trade-offs etc, and just the interesting bits. So, this is based on the Star Wars Legends Canon and VS series videos by Evannova95, Jensaarai1 etc. just for context. I’ve developed this largely in theory but based on my instincts, fencing style irl, physicality etc. Over time. I’ll be using it’s in universe version as it’s the one I developed most. So here we go: Lightsaber: Standard but slim-ish Lightsaber with a Green Blade, and dual phase function for close quarters combat. Design is personalized and neat but irrelevant due to being mostly aesthetic flair. Styles: Shii Cho is used for large sweeping mostly one handed attacks mostly for crowd control and to defeat blaster wielding assailants. It’s used by me against multiple opponents as well. I also do give into the force sometimes, but my skill in doing so is underdeveloped so it’s not consistent in my ability to do so. Makashi is the base of my style, and I use every element of it, though prefer cuts and slashes to stabs, but I still use whatever is necessary despite my preferences. It’s developed with the balanced offensive defensive capability mind, and utilizes the bladework and the footwork extensively. It’s mixed in with the other styles as well, so while extremely elevated in a pure technical sense, it is not used as a purist form. Used primarily with a single hand. The style is customized for my own needs when needed and personalized, and blended as well, with a focus on sustainable aggression, able deflection, and a sustainable offensive set of moves and sequences to keep up the pressure on my opponent. It’s defensive qualities are focused on evasion and deflection as well as parties. It’s personalized whenever there’s an advantage and a experience that teaches me a alternative method or technique, and it’s customized to be as in tune with myself and as quick as possible. Piercing my opponent’s guard, break through, beat them down, or outmaneuver my opponent, any method of bladework is accepted as a means of victory. The style for me has a particular emphasis on conserving my energy, to keep up the duel for as long as possible and always remain a threat, avoiding exhaustion and ensuring my offensive style doesn’t burn out, though like with every other human, my stamina is not infinite. Overall it’s a very well developed and customized, though largely conventional, variant of Makashi that is used as the basis of my entire style. Soresu is my main defensive form. Like my other forms, I do slightly prefer a single hand when using it, but I will use two hands whenever necessary, so that preference becomes noticeable but not particularly influential. I use Soresu for both blast deflection and lightsaber combat, combining both the variants employed by Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Zannah as a mixture, with tight defensive movements and minimal shifts in body weight like Kenobi slightly preferred. I blend it into my other forms as well, as it’s designed to make up for my otherwise aggressive and fast paced styles. It’s customized as needed, and it’s the core of my defensive component. The bladework is a mix of personalization and standard, as with my other forms. Ataru is my offensive style, however it’s not the exhaustive normal variant nor the strength based Qui Gon variant. Instead, the style is quite grounded, focusing on integrating the bladework and occasionally unarmed combat into the Makashi sequences, and ensuring it flows as well as my other forms into my personal style, making it blend in seamlessly like I attempt with the others. I do use the occasional acrobatic, but I am far more conservative with my approach than most, preferring the fast and aggressive bladework to the spine and leaps and acrobatics, and emphasizing my footwork. It’s blended with my Makashi and enhances my offensive style with a lot of speed and aggression, while intentionally avoiding the common pitfalls of the style-that being it’s exhaustive nature and it’s massive use of force reserves to keep up. In a way it’s modeled after Darth Malaj’s model of Ataru, and I will admit that the Makashi and Ataru mix has similarities to Malaj’s, however like with everything else, it’s the skill configurations where we differ or are more alike than I think. My Ataru is fast and fearlessly aggressive, being used to keep up the pressure, break my opponent’s guard, or use the kinetic energy to break down their guard. It’s quite highly developed, but I admit I don’t know to what level. Overall it’s the aggressive cherry on top to my personal style, and it completes it, providing the fast rapid bladework needed to counteract Makadhi’s weaknesses, though obviously only to a certain extent. Force integration and other things of note: I feel compelled to post about this here to round it out. Assume that the powers referenced are in the ideal force skille and power level scenario. I would proactively integrate force integration in my personal style, using it both to manipulate the battlefield and use it tactically and subtly to outmaneuver my opponent or outwit, and raw power to overwhelm them. I could possibly suffer from target fixation despite my willingness and use of the battlefield around them and geography and positional advantages and tactics. I feel I would at least. My primary force powers would be, in a ideal scenario: Push, Pull, Telekinesis, Wave, Heal, Augmentation, Shield, Tutaminis, Farsight, Crush, Empathy, Animal Friendship, Sense, Speed, Strength, Rage, Telepathy, Persuade, Battle Mind, Stealth, and Shatterpoint. I would also be willing to incorporate Trakata into my style. If I used two lightsabers, my style would emphasize the Ataru over the Makashi and Soresu, using it as a aggressive style for lightsaber dueling primarily. I’ve considered the Exar Kun Lightsaber and would be more than happy to use it, but it’s so rare and difficult to train with that I have left it out in favor of a more traditional weapon. submitted by /u/CyrusNavarre [link] [comments]

  • Sabertrio Rts question
    by /u/Baron_Eldritch1990 on January 17, 2022 at 2:25 am

    So when it comes to sabertrio and they’re ready to ship sabers. Are they early pre-configured such as light up buttons etc etc, or would I be able to pick like say a non-illuminated red switch? Or is that option only available if I choose to go the custom route? submitted by /u/Baron_Eldritch1990 [link] [comments]

  • Can anyone give me dimension for a battery?
    by /u/_slug___ on January 17, 2022 at 12:11 am

    It’s the “DM Keeppower Li-Ion 18650 3.7V 15A 3000mAh PCB Protected Rechargeable Battery” on TCSS. Can’t order the parts yet but wanting to update my chassis while I wait. Currently it’s sized for a different battery so I’ll probably have to reprint. Reached out to Tim and the team but figured I’d ask you all, too. TIA submitted by /u/_slug___ [link] [comments]

  • Flagship
    by /u/OntNewfie on January 16, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    KR Flagship So I bought a Flagship (brass) cause I loved the look of it, and when it showed up I loved it even more. But this build is going to be about 3-4 months in the making because I’m going to acid etch it, and powder coat the etched parts, and I’m doing it all myself. I’ve had the the hilt and some of the parts for about 1 week, but I got impatient cause I had nothing to play with so I got a cheap lightsaber from Amazon, and to my astonishment, I love it and discovered that the Flagship isn’t that great for lightsaber tricks… its heavy and awkward, therefore the build will be a SHOW piece and not something to dual with. submitted by /u/OntNewfie [link] [comments]
