Dual-blade Lightsabers

I think the Dual-blade should at least have 2 crystal slots. Your wielding 2 blades after-all so its not all that different from wielding 2 lightsabers.

This could be argued for the hilt too but I won't push my luck. I just want 2 colors really.

That should be an easy request. I mean, just post a bunch of links showing all the times that a saber-staffs had blades of two different colors and we're in business.

Then I shall demand a saber with 7 crystal slots.

Soon my dream of swinging a rainbow sabre will be reality.

Considering that most dual sabers were basically 2 single blade sabers connected at the Pommel there's no reason you couldn't have 2 colors. Pretty much every time I've seen a dual saber split in two, both halves continue working independantly. That means two hilts, 2 power sources, 2 focusing crystals.

Just because no existing media shows a dual colored dual saber doesn't mean it couldn't be made. Your argument that you need to have existing media showing it before it can exist means that the world followed your philosophy we'd all still be living in a cave entertaining ourselves with rocks and twigs and there would never be any progress.

Personally I would find it ugly, 2 colors...

What I would like to see, is more kinds of colors for your sabers

Agreed. There are situations where this is not the case, but I agree with you.

That was a fantastic uppercut you landed on that straw man. Bravo.

I haven't argued that its not possible. I simply said that it would be trivial to convince people to make this change once we show everyone a nice collection of some of the times that this has been used in the universe.

I'm not saying that we need to get a petition or show me quotes from Lucas or see model schematics. A scan of a few comics would be fine, or a few quotes from EU books.

That's easy, right? It's not like I'm saying we need to prove that Darth Maul was going to have a red/gold saber but it was scrapped because of special effects budget problems. We just need to show that Darth DidUrMom the Mercileess who is currently standing outside some doorway on Nar Shaddaa begging for someone to help him wasn't the creator of this particular lightsaber fad.

Of course... maybe that would make more sense if it were true.

Here's another thought: I want a light-trident. Surely if we can make multi-hilt lightsabers and short-lightsabers, then we can mount three short lightsabers on the end of a staff to make a trident. Why not add that into the game? Obviously you can't argue against it because it's very possible, and arguing against things that are possible is the same as arguing against all forms of technological progress.

they'd half to nerf the crystals stats in half if you equipped 2. simple logic but something simple boolean stuff couldnt manage. "if xcrystal is equipped in xdoublebladed saber then stats 1/2" - of course written in proper boolean. would be simple. but a blue and red saber would be nice IM LORD PATRIOTIC AMERICAN MAN FEEL MY BLADE RAWR
Light thinks itself the superior of the two sides but as fast and as powerful as the light may be it always finds darkness just ahead of it waiting patiently

If you're talking about the starwars universe, I completely agree. If you're talking about this game though...very unfair balance lol. Unless of course the other crystals stats were voided.

Actually, Maul's double-bladed lightsaber only had one functional half after Obi-Wan cut it in half. Asajj Ventress has two lightsabers that can join together to make a double-bladed lightsaber, but that's a slightly different animal.
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

I disagree. Having double the slots in a dual lightsaber is no different than a Sentinel that weilds a light saber in each hand. The mods are not down graded there.
