    It has nothing to do with the weight, it's the length of the blade and handle. As for the cross guard yeah it's kinda dumb but new SW has so many problems it doesn't bother me nearly as much as other things. I think lore wise they're kind of exhaust vents for an unstable crystal or something?

                it was received well because sois wanted more star wars and don't care about writing at all. nothing about the first movie was well written, it was full of contrivances, abysmal character design and the only "good" parts are scenes that are so moronic that they became meme material for a short while.

              They had something with Finn at least in TFA but I have no idea why they wasted him so hard in TLJ and especially in RoS. Poe had more character in both TLJ and RoS than Finn did despite Finn having a far better backstory and overall written character, it's crazy. Rose's moronation of "Love will prevail" in that suicide charge completely killed Finn's character and would have been the perfect way to end Finn on a high note but no, gotta have him be some background character in RoS who doesn't matter.
              It's also equally as insane how they tripled down on Rey "Skywalker" despite every fan pretty much hating her after TFA. Having another trilogy based on her is going to be a riot to watch just from the reception to her if she doesn't have any issues and is still the same Rey who is perfect at everything.

              >Cal would be siding with some lunatic who just went on a rant about how everyone's an idiot but him
              But that's just it. At that point, Cal has very little faith in much of anything. The fight seems aimless and the Jedi seemed ineffectual. He's at the perfect point in his character arc to team up with a lunatic because everyone *does* kind of seem like an idiot. As for Dagan, he's alive and everyone who held him back was killed by whatever army surprise attacks them in the flash back sequences. If that's the force proving him right and giving him a green pasture to make his mark on, it *should* mellow him out until he starts hitting challenges that he's willing to go too far to overcome.
              There's such a good story there and nobody was willing to write it.

              >At that point, Cal has very little faith in much of anything.
              But he's still a reasonable person despite that. Dagan just went on a megalomaniacal rant to his face about how a bunch of people are stupid, how he's pissed his pseudo-wife betrayed him, how the Order betrayed him, etc. Cal himself literally asked Dagan to team up with him to build up Tanalorr again before the rant and that just caused him to recall what just happened to him a few minutes ago (In his eyes) and piss him off. Cal even tried, again to talk him down but Dagan wasn't having it because of how fresh his wound is.
              >As for Dagan, he's alive and everyone who held him back was killed by whatever army surprise attacks them in the flash back sequences.
              But again, this is like waking up from a coma after your wife just shot you and you found out your family died in a house fire. Dude's dazed, just got his arm cut off by his wife, just found out everyone is dead, and so on. I don't see how someone would be so calm and cognizant of their situation at that point since Dagan wasn't and even Luke was out of it for a while after getting out of the Bacta and he had less trauma.

                Look, my whole criticism is him going from zero to sith in this one scene is the most boring, redundant thing you could have done with the character and sets him up for an arc where literally zero interesting turns or interactions happen. He doesn't even meet Vader and have that big-fish-small-pond attitude shattered, much less by being the rival character you beat in 3 separate 1v1 fights through the game. You already have inquisitors running around to fill that position and pulling a character out of the high republic is pointless if you're not going to do *anything* fun or interesting with him.

              • 5 days ago

                Then fair enough. My point is that from what we have in the game is enough to at least build him up as a character even if he is shallow. Based on what we have right now it would feel out of character for both Cal and Dagan to have a sort of peaceful encounter in their first one. If you reworked it like you're saying where it would make more sense for them to meet half way (Like maybe win Dagan over with the Jedi Order thing like you said, or talk him down somehow since he's clearly distraught and not himself) it definitely would have worked out better.

                Maybe an encounter with Vader would be a bit much but him having to deal with an Inquisitor would have worked to humble him at the very least before he dies to said Inquisitor and Cal has to deal with them.

        well yeah, it weights nothing, but the length of it mean the farther the point on contact on the blade, the more strength you need for it to stay still. Meaning you need more strength to parry the further from the handle. Barycenters n shit.

        No reason the blade moves slow until contact tho, so yeah it's moronic in the game

        >how can a lightsaber be a great sword

I think lore wise they're kind of exhaust vents for an unstable crystal or something?

        In kotor, metal blades are coated in cortose, which can resist lightsabers, so I guess the reddit argument that it can cut the handle above the crossguard is just ignorance. The cross gard can still be used to parry blades, bu as I understood, lightsabers don't slip from each other like metal blades can do

            Anon, if regular humans could retract their swords at the speed we see lightsabers come in and out at, it wouldn't work. Recognizing a lowered guard and stabbing your opponent takes a fraction of a second when you're trained to do it even without magic mental superpowers.

            You can also just turn off your lightsaber and turn it back on again and win every fight but most of the time that never happens because of muh honor (would ruin fights)

            It's a legit tactic in the EU, but extremely risky and based only on surprising your enemy. You're making your blade disappear in a bladed fight. Have you really thought about it bozo?

            The Jedi doesn't teach it, on the principle that a tactic that only works by surprise and has a 50% chance of killing you isn't something that should be taught. The Sith occasionally uses it, because they're crazy, but even when it works for them it can only works once. It's a pure surprise move, if it kills it kills, if it doesn't it won't work next time.

              This reads like a writer coping to justify why it isn't more common. Blade is disappearing but it also reappears instantly. Literally any time your opponent is trying to block your swing, rather than trying to hit you, you can use the disappear and reappear trick to get past their blade. The only time it's a disadvantage to make your blade "disappear" is if you're in a position where the other blade will hit you, in other words, you're defending. If you're on the offensive and opponent is defending, there's no real danger and only benefits.

                You think wrong, then.
                The speed of a lightsaber depends entirely on the cinematic needs of the scene. Darth Vader needs to look menacing? It comes out slowly. General Grievous needs to show off multiple lightsabers as a surprise move? They come out instantly, because surprise is better that way.

                There has always been a half second action/deactivation time for lightsabers. You're making your sword disappear for 1 second in a fricking sword fight, anon. You didn't really think about it really, really well, ain't it?

                Even worse, you're making your sword disappear for 1 second in a sword fight between superfast precognitive kung-fu artists. Really think about it for one second.

                It's insanely dangerous and only used as a wtf moment you can ambush someone that isn't prepared for it with. Jedi don't usually teach it because they don't like to lose a Padawan to an insane move, Siths occasionally use it because they don't care.

                How does this not apply to mundane feints? Do in-lore lightsaber duels come down solely to who has the better reflexes and faster arm? Because if you say "uhhh they're precognitive" you're completely removing skill and tactics from the equation. Nothing matters except the physical stats required to overwhelm your opponent, slip past their guard and land a blow despite their precognition.

                All of those are true. It's a combination of precognition, physical ability, and skill. Skill is obtained through training, and is pretty straightforward, though your lightsaber style plays a part. Your physical attributes are part intrinsic, part trained, and can be augmented with the Force. Precognition is also from the Force. You can train how well you use the Force, naturally, but you're also limited by your natural talent there, and you can also use other Force abilities during a fight to mix things up. Ultimately, the high-end Force users are the most advantaged, because the only thing chumps can do is get really good at fencing, which is as you say worthless against someone who can move five times faster than you.

          These are called "greatswords" and not "heavy swords." The size and techniques to use weapons of that size aren't useless just because there's no weight.

          For all the coping against this by morons in this thread, the funny thing is, this has been done several times in canon and it works. Not just in some old obscure books, even in recent stuff, like the anime Star Wars Visions, where one of Studio Trigger's episodes featured a Jedi master using this to beat a Sith old man.

        the last guy who used a lightsaber without a crossguard...it didn't end well for him

        It would make way more sense if the cross guards were physically metal similar to the op, but surrounded by mini shield generators, like droideka tech shrunk down and localized. Then you'd have a cross guard that could block light sabers but not harm the wielder of the weapon. you're welcome, Disney.

      its not hard to avoid hitting yourself with a crossguard. the real issue is that theyre a stupid addition because nobody binds with lightsabers properly the first place. theyre not accurate representations of historic swords, they dont get used like them and in the original trilogy, theyre specifically ritualistic and symbolic weapons.
      Adding a crossguard for anything but aesthetics (which in this case just make it worse) is stupid. there's no attempt at realism in any other regard, why focus on it now?

          Same. Because when you think about it there is nothing special about the Kotor era, it's just a reskin of the OT mostly. And all the worlds and political systems are just the way you know them unchanged.

          High Republic at least has less of a time distance so it's more believable and there is still noticeable technological progress, political changes and discoveries made. (I.e. Tatooine is just being colonized relatively recently and the events in the High Republic era are what turns it into this Hutt ruled shithole)

      Cal literally spends the entire game talking about how he feels like his work is hopeless, how Tanalorr represents a possible way for his work to matter, how Cere gives him more hope with the Hidden Path, etc. You're meant to compare and contrast Dagan Gera's obsession with Tanalorr and the Jedi Order to what Cal is going through with wanting Tanalorr to do the same thing Dagan wanted. It's also setup for his character for the third game. Hell, even Rayvis is there to show you that there's no real honor or enjoyment to be had anymore thanks to the Empire.

      Kyber Crystals "bleeding" has been new canon for like 8 years now so expecting them to follow the old way of Sith crystals being forged was your own fault. Hell, even Malicos is implied to have done the same since he crashed on Dathomir as a Jedi after Order 66 was called so naturally he wouldn't have had a red crystal at all outside of either it Bleeding or the Nightsisters doing it somehow.

          Cal did join Saw Gerrera, that was covered in the entire Coruscant stuff. He was even there for a job for him and then Saw stopped contacting him. Cal's obsession with working for Saw mindlessly was what pushed everyone else away from him which itself is covered the instant you talk to Cere. Rogue One also established Saw was an extremist and barely any Rebels wanted to side with him due to that.

          nta but every OC villain in Survivor is moronic with zero reason to oppose Cal.
          If Dagan had simply worked with Cal, they could have both made it to Tanalorr and he could start his Jedi Temple with effectively zero oversight, with a few refugees on the side. Handing out lightsabers to a bunch of space hobos makes no sense, especially since the whole key search is rendered pointless by the end.
          The ISB agent guy, I forget his name, makes even less sense. If part of your plan is using Cal to kill every single Imperial in the base holding your daughter....just be honest and do that? Without trying to kill the guy who's combat ability is so integral to your plan? Wearing a wire? Communicate through the force. You're a Jedi Spy and acting like a bullied high schooler.

          Dagan opposes Cal because he's blinded with rage, that's the entire point. He thinks Cal and the current Jedi are all idiots who lost to the Empire when he's only seen weak Stormtroopers sent his way. He hasn't met Vader or Inquisitors. He's delusional and Cal three times tries talking him down and explaining stuff to him but he instead refuses to listen to reason.

            That sucks. Everyone Dagan has a personal issue with is dead and even their legacy in the Jedi Order is gone. The character he chooses for his enemy in Cal isn't particularly interested in maintaining Jedi dogma, is first and foremost practically minded, and wants to get to Tanalorr. Cal never points this out and just goes "darkside bad" even after learning Dagan's entire backstory.
            Its totally contrived. Both characters are acting as good and evil archetypes instead of believable people with specific goals who land on the good/evil spectrum as a secondary consequence. If Dagan wants Tanalorr, working with Cal can only speed that process up.

              Dagan wants Tanalorr because he wants to build up an army to take back the galaxy and use his God Complex to rule over his new Jedi Order and the galaxy which is no better than the current status quo.
              Cal wants Tanalorr as a safe haven for like 80% of the game until he has that talk with Bode which causes Bode to have second thoughts and ultimately oppose Cal in the end since Cal essentially turned into Dagan at that point.
              Dagan is completely nuts and is willing to kill civvies and anyone who gets in his way through the Raiders or on his own which Cal sees time and time again with the Jedi he killed to get the compass before he was slapped into the Bacta Tank. He already can't be trusted with anything he does nor can he be trusted to keep a level head when doing anything. Cal himself also expresses his anger, frustration, and surprise that a Jedi would do something like that every single time he finds a Force Echo of him or Rayvis.

              There was no being logical with Dagan because he
              A. Felt spurned by the original Order so it's already an uphill battle for any Jedi.
              B. Feels like the current surviving Jedi are all weak for having lost to an Empire he doesn't have the full context of.

              I'm not. Instead, you're acting like it's shit just because it doesn't do what you specifically wanted or focused on something you don't like and want to complain about it. Fallen Order itself was complained about as having a boring story, how Cal had a super special Force Power never heard of before, how he had to go have a Kyber Crystal selected for him, etc.

                I'm with you that they could have done it better like you explained

                Its not even that hard to fix. Make Dagan and Cal initially team up but have a falling out and turn to enemies centered around methods and choices in allies instead of "Sith bad! No, Jedi bad!"
                Dagan says he wants to turn every single refugee who gets to Tanalorr into a soldier, forcing them if he has to. Maybe he has a way to undo Cal's destruction of the force sensitive list at the end of the first game and is super down with kidnapping children. There's so much you could do.

                , especially on the first encounter, but they already give you quite a bit of context why he's so distant and angry pretty much immediately after it happens. He's not unreasonable just because he wants to be. He has his reasons and he's letting it cloud all judgement and reason he has. Could it have been done better? Sure, but that doesn't stop the current implementation from not working.

                How does one even stumble upon this shit? I have no idea what it is and pretty much no means of knowing besides this thread.

                That's exactly where my disappointment came from. He feels betrayed by the Jedi only to be unfrozen centuries later by one of their last surviving members but instead of going "Frick yeah, I was completely right! Come with me lost lil' Cal, I'll show you how to *really* use the force." and starting an interesting, dynamic relationship, he falls into a role that is already filled perfectly by Vader. A 2v1 duel between Cal + Dagan and Vader which you barely escape and that really sends Dagan over the edge would have been pure kino.

        nta but every OC villain in Survivor is moronic with zero reason to oppose Cal.
        If Dagan had simply worked with Cal, they could have both made it to Tanalorr and he could start his Jedi Temple with effectively zero oversight, with a few refugees on the side. Handing out lightsabers to a bunch of space hobos makes no sense, especially since the whole key search is rendered pointless by the end.
        The ISB agent guy, I forget his name, makes even less sense. If part of your plan is using Cal to kill every single Imperial in the base holding your daughter....just be honest and do that? Without trying to kill the guy who's combat ability is so integral to your plan? Wearing a wire? Communicate through the force. You're a Jedi Spy and acting like a bullied high schooler.

He could've asked Cal to help him and instead tricked him for no reason. It's not like getting to Tanalorr with just his daughter was going to help either of them, it's a dead planet.

            >It's not like getting to Tanalorr with just his daughter was going to help either of them, it's a dead planet.
            Bode's main issue is that Cal's later plan and Dagan's original plan to militarize Tanalorr would have put a target on its back. His entire reason for wanting to help Cal find it was so that Kata, him, Cal's friends, the Hidden Path, and everyone else could have a place where the Empire couldn't reach them at all so they could live out a peaceful life without worry of them attacking or subjugating them.
            Even if they have the Abyss or whatever it's called to prevent the Empire from reaching it or knowing it exists (Which they seem to know considering the Imperial presence the further into the game you get), all it takes is one ship losing their compass or someone defecting to call Vader to the planet since it's a massive military target. Just having the Hidden Path people there instead of raising Jedi and stuff would mean Bode would have still been on board with the plan, but Cal leaning into Dagan's plan out of desperation to feel like his actions matter is why Bode acts like he does.

            You gotta keep in mind the last thing he remembers is what is essentially his wife just cut off his arm after saying she doesn't agree with him, thought he had lost his mind, the Jedi Council outright went against him and was close to branding him a traitor, and was just told by this guy who pulled him out that everyone's dead, the Order is gone, and in general the Jedi failed (Including the people Dagan cared about). It would only make sense for him to try recruiting Cal after he gets situated with Rayvis or something because otherwise Cal would be siding with some lunatic who just went on a rant about how everyone's an idiot but him.

              But that's just it. At that point, Cal has very little faith in much of anything. The fight seems aimless and the Jedi seemed ineffectual. He's at the perfect point in his character arc to team up with a lunatic because everyone *does* kind of seem like an idiot. As for Dagan, he's alive and everyone who held him back was killed by whatever army surprise attacks them in the flash back sequences. If that's the force proving him right and giving him a green pasture to make his mark on, it *should* mellow him out until he starts hitting challenges that he's willing to go too far to overcome.

      The crystal bleed thing is so absurdly stupid. I doubt most fallen jedi see themselves as evil, but rather misguidedly willing to do bad things for a "greater good". Taking out your saber crystal and going "hurrr bleed dark side turn red durrrr" pretty much screams I'm A Bad Guy, you can't really reconcile them believing they're still doing the right thing. Dagan included, he still thought to the very end that he was right and the order was wrong. So why bleed his crystal? Wouldn't it be more impactful if he kept his yellow blade? And how do they explain Anakin murdering children with a blue blade then? It's so incredibly stupid.

        there's already a button on sabers to adujst the length as you wish, but like

        well yeah, it weights nothing, but the length of it mean the farther the point on contact on the blade, the more strength you need for it to stay still. Meaning you need more strength to parry the further from the handle. Barycenters n shit.

        No reason the blade moves slow until contact tho, so yeah it's moronic in the game

        [...]
        In kotor, metal blades are coated in cortose, which can resist lightsabers, so I guess the reddit argument that it can cut the handle above the crossguard is just ignorance. The cross gard can still be used to parry blades, bu as I understood, lightsabers don't slip from each other like metal blades can do

        said, the longer the blade, the more strength you need to strike and defend, so one handed with long blade is dumb

    Crosguards make sense, though. If you can control the length of the beam, then there's no reason you can't have a longer lightsaber with two mini beams angled towards the main blade like a claymore. There are lightsaber resistant materials, and Jedi survivor has several cross guard styles that cover the bottom of the beams to prevent self harm.

      Lightsaber "crossguards" have never been used as crossguards. The only time they were used was offensively, to stab. In that context, they make perfect sense.

            Plenty of Bronze Age swords had no handguard.
            The issue is that the handguard is right next to their fricking fingers, all they had to do was make the hild longer, around Mauls size, and then it wouldn't look so fricking stupid and kill suspension of desbelief.

            People like Andor because of the acting and quality of character driven drama.
            In any case, if most lightsabers don't have crossguards, it should be understood that they don't need crossguards. Therefor, if you see a crossguard, its probably not meant to work as a crossguard. How does it work? We see that question answered: its a stabbing tool.

            The entire idea that its meant to catch other lightsabers has *never ever* been supported by anything in canon except the fact that Survivor calls it a crossguard by name.

              the single saber is fine

              the maul saber is barely fine
              anything besides those three is far too big of a liability, and waiving that liability under space magic cheapens all the not moronic lightsabers and leaves the audience to ask "why not just pack a blaster in the offhand"

                Good and bad design is subjective until its thrown at a group of people who can come to a consensus. When good designs come out, you'll add them to that list and won't think twice about it. Kylo/Ben was the best thing about the sequel trilogy so I give some tryhard aspects of his design a pass, even to the point that his mask is literally just Revan's.

    Disney is pretty adamant that the nonsense they introduced in Rebels and the Sequels are here to stay, even if no one likes it.

    One thing you need to realize is that they're never going to go back and say "Sorry we fricked up" or decanonize the sequels. They're going to wait as long as it takes for the masses to flip and start saying they were good movies without the need of paid shills.

        People rehabilitate the prequels because of the extended media around them and bits of those movies are genuinely well made. Podracing, Duel of the fates, the bounty hunter flying car chase, Geonosis, the opening long cut of episode 3, there's enough there that's genuinely better than the action choreography of almost anything since, certainly better than what you see coming from Marvel.
        Yeah, when things slow down and characters start exchanging dialog it sucks but there's enough spark there to keep the franchise interesting if nothing else than as a delivery mechanism for space fantasy action.
        Nothing in the nu trilogy is enjoyable except a handful of set-ups and those cannot be enjoyed once you realize they're either forgotten or lead to extremely disappointing "reveals". Do the prequels hold up to other stuff coming out in the late 90s/early 2000s like the original Matrix and LotR movies? No. They kick the shit out of anything since.

          Same as how lightsabers sometimes bounce off each other and sometimes do the climactic standoff where they stick together, the gun jams when it's dramatically appropriate to do so. The force is neither good, nor evil; merely cinematic.

      Presumably there's still a blade of hot plasma under that metal because it's purely ornamental and the origin point is deeper in the handle. We only ever see lightsabers cut in half, not knicked at the tip like a Jedi circumcision.

        the problem is is that you could cut the shaft or the emitter in one cut unlike a normal spear you could make the blade longer but then you end with a greatsword or a nagamaki.
        making the shaft of a lightsaber resistant material would make the weapon heavy and slow probably only meant for someone very physically strong on top of it being not very portable

      • 5 days ago

        No, a lightspear would not, in fact, be OP. It'd be extremely shit. Real spears had thick shafts that still sometimes got broken. Lightspears are going against lightsabers, capable of instantly breaking and destroying anything they touch. You're increasing the length of the weakspot on a lightsaber, for a "reach" advantage, that won't even be an advantage because your spear can be cut.

        If you want reach, get a greatsword. Even historically, greatswords are better than spears. The reason they weren't as common as spears is because, as it turns out, making a metal blade the size of a spear is a lot more expensive than a wood + dagger's amount of metal. Plus greatswords are harder to use. Those who could use them were the highest paid soldiers of the army.

        The spear overhype is moronic. You're even beginning to apply it to places where it's even more moronic than it was in history.

        Ew. Mandalorian iron is lightsaber-resistant, but it's heavy. You'd probably need to train specifically with that one lightsaber hilt extensively, and it would still be that iota less nimble than a plain one. And if you're fighting someone of equal skill, that could make all the difference, even if your hand is more protected.

    the real issue with it is how dangerous it would be for the user to use a lightsaber with a cross guard like that. you could angle them forward more like a claymore. if you've ever played around with a sword you will notice that the cross guard will touch your hands, wrists, and to some extent, your arms on a regular basis. with a regular lightsaber that wouldn't happen, the "blade" is where it should be and if you know what you're doing you won't touch yourself with it. to not touch yourself with a cross guard ever would require a moronic amount of being extra careful and having to handle it in awkward ways to keep it away from yourself.

          Until you give the swordsman a shield, yes. But those same IRL spears are inferior to greatswords. Because greatswords get the same reach advantage and aren't useless once someone closes in.
          But here's the problem. You can't just hit a spear shaft to cut it in half with a real sword. If you could do that, real life spears would be useless too. In Star Wars, you can cut the shaft in half. Lightsabers cut way better than real swords. Your reach becomes useless when you're basically exposing the weak spot of your weapon.

                better question is why not cut off the whole shaft

          I think his point is why not just make the lightsaber blade 5x as long if you want reach. I mean it doesn’t have mass, you don’t need leverage to move it.

          But then you get into why anyone has any kind of form with a lightsaber instead of just jiggling their wrist around wildly, since all you have to do is touch someone with the blade to melt through them

          if the shaft is a target and the blade is shorter in a way the spear has has shorter reach since the spear shaft would be a hit box
          with a normal spear and sword the shaft would take many blows to cut

        Imagine being one of the lore masters at Lucasfilm at the time and you had to incorporate this moronic ass fanfiction
        >uh actually Darth Vader had a secret apprentice and he was the most powerfulest jedi of all time
        >he was so strong he could pull down a star destroyer with the force
        >also he was so cool he inspired the rebellion to start
        And you have to unironically take this seriously as part of the canon now

    I always thought that due to the increased power of the "Two-handed Greatsword" Lightsaber, it pushed back on the person too much for them to be handled well.

    I could have sworn I remember reading something about Lightsabers being ALMOST completely unusable for the average person due to the weird effect that cause.

      It still restricts movement, making it a niche sidegrade that you'd have to put work into training around to getting real use out of rather than anything super useful to anyone

    why is called a lightsaber when it doesn't have any curvature?

    • 5 days ago

      Saber, until people became autistic about sword classifications, used to be a word that referred to all swords. Particularly for the bongs. They called all swords, curved or otherwise, sabers. In modern times, we autistically classify different swords with different names, so it's lost that general use connotation.

      >a light fencing or dueling sword having an arched guard that covers the back of the hand and a tapering flexible blade with a full cutting edge along one side and a partial cutting edge on the back at the tip
      becuase this is also considered a saber

    Can anyone post proof that lightsabers are weightless? Everyone in this thread just says that they’re weightless but it’s never said in the movies that they are and they don’t seem weightless during the duals.

      Realistically, they weigh as much as the props allow
      In the prequels, they're light as a feather, in the OT they're heavier than real swords
      The only recent media that's attempted to do anything with this beyond ignoring it for continuity's sake is Mandalorian making the darksaber ambiguously heavy with some kind of spiritual "weight" that varies based on the user's clarity of mind somehow, they never really explained it and it was mostly just a plot device to tie its usage to character arcs

    Lightsabers obviously have weight to them, otherwise characters would wave the laser around freely, like twirling a torch
    Instead everyone fences as if the blade had an actual weight behind it

      I'm gonna assume you watched that homosexuals youtube video, because I've been starting to see this shit repeated a bit too much for my liking, but I'll explain a couple reasons why he's gay and moronic
      >to move it around like a moron, you'd have to limp wrist it like a moron, making a strong hit on the blade likely to blast it out of your hands
      >to someone with precognition like a force user, they'd still understand your movements, and now they're not calmly calculated and based on (in universe) sword techniques, but random flailing, and that sounds quite a bit less effective
      >this idea of "not effective weaponry" is autistic in and of itself because the Jedi are completely aware a sword of all things isn't an effective weapon, but that's precisely WHY they use it. I remember, even in universe, it being explained the entire point of the light saber was to inspire hope and reverence in onlookers who can cut through anything and block blaster bolts traveling faster than the average person can even see. To push up your glasses with your cheeto stained fingers and say "uhm, they're not using it optimally" is missing the point. You'd look like a fricking idiot swishing it through the air like a psycho and cutting someone into 30 different pieces in a split second. At that point, they'd just use guns.
      and lastly
      >they said in universe they're weightless, so they're weightless. Any opinion opposing this is moronic and using "muh logic" doesn't work in the series about intergalactic magic space samurai

    iirc there's a material out there, I think it's called vibranium weave or something, that when it comes in contact with a lightsaber it short circuits it for a little while. So why not make a bo staff or shield made out of it?

    Lightsabers are already a stupid idea that simply looks cool. You take the ridiculous aspects of Star Wars for granted, then focus on newer absurdities. It’s not a science fiction franchise, basically nothing in it makes sense, it’s just there to be fun and look cool.
