What the hell Bioware. Those lightsabers are more disproportionate then a retards forehead, but unlike a tards forehead, its not funny.

At least you can look at your forehead in the mirror every morning for laughs.

Come on, guys. All jabs aside, you "know" Bioware will change the Lightsabers. BW and LA understands that for this MMO to be a success it has to be dang near perfect, as such they can not afford to have even an angered "minority", as the article says at, over such a thing at launch time.

So, take a breath. We've got a long way to go, and a lot of things will change about the game from now till then; and even though some things will be cause for worry, Lightsaber size will not be one of them.

Hehe! Btw, self-irony is the best way to sell me basically anything; nice move, Bioware!

A vocal minority? I've spent enough time on the swtor official forums to say for a fact that is not true.

A vocal minority of fans are complaining about the art direction and the stylized graphics. Even then, still quite a large number.

As for the lightsaber proportions, large polls and discussion threads show that approximately 96% have a problem with the lightsaber proportions.

I'm not worried about it. If those are the graphics I can expect from SWTOR then I'm saving myself $50 and a subscription fee every month.

LOL. That's great. I love it when a company takes people's comments to heart, even when it involves a bit of lampooning. A sense of humour is a healthy thing.

As for the overgrown lightsabers, yeh they look dumb but I think the caterwauling that has gone on since the screenshots might have convinced Bioware that the weapons maybe need scaling down so they don't look UTTERLY stupid. It's only in pre-alpha, lets face it the whole thing will probably look markedly different by release day.

They can laugh at themselves... that's a good sign. They'll need to keep that up to survive this.
