"Blade Dance" Name On Par With "Jedi Wizard" Before Launch - Please Consider Changing

Changing the name of Master Strike to "Blade Dance" is almost as bad as naming the Sage class Jedi Wizard.

Please considering using a different name.

Sith Warriors use... Ravage. And Jedi Knights... Blade Dance.

Even Chinese sword forms for demo and practice purposes, that basically look like a dance with a sword, aren't called dances.

Blade Dance is awful. Master Strike is good.

What exactly is so wrong with "Master Strike" that they feel the need to change it after all this time?

And why is it more important to BioWare to change the name of one ability--which has no impact on game play and serves no purpose other than someone on the team's personal taste--when bugs that have been in the game since launch haven't been fixed yet? I think they should consider getting their priorities straight. Maybe they should also stop having in-game bug reports automatically forwarded into the trash bin while they're at it.

Perhaps you didn't read the part where they said, " The Jedi Knight’s Master Strike ability has been renamed “Blade Dance” because Soresu Form reduces the Focus gained by “Strike” abilities (Strike, Sundering Strike, and Warding Strike), but Master Strike does not generate or cost Focus – so its name is out of place with the conventions of the rest of the class."

Personally I'm indifferent to the name change and it seems to me like people are just flipping out because change is scary. If it makes the naming conventions more logical, ok.

I like Blade Dance as a name. But I'm also positively giddy about getting a charge for my Marauder, so perhaps I am not to be trusted.

To be honest, the forums had gone at least 5 minutes without someone raging about something.
