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.
People are irked because it's a really silly name and an utterly pointless change.

Actually, the reasoning behind the change is logical, but the new name is a bit dumb...

As long as the ability looks cool, I don't care. It could be called "Saber Stride" for all I care.

Admittedly, I get a little bit more out of this deal than you do in the form of free CC but the benefits are nothing to scoff at, including 7 day sub and a free server transfer,

I agree.

Perhaps this thread should go in a constructive direction by suggesting replacement names?

I agree with the OP. Blade Dance demeans us more than Pub Mirrors already are. You could spend 2 minutes with a thesaurus and come up with something better.


Suggestions:

Blade Mastery, Sweep Away, Extinguish, Trample, Overrun, Overwhelm, Total Devastation, Retribution, Exorcise, Rebuke, Retribution... Thesaurus.com

Ballet of Blades, Blade Plie, Tango of Terror (SW), Salsa of Sabers, Contemporary Interpretive Blade Performance, or Saber Swing are also likeminded alternatives.

But that presents a problem absolutely no one noticed or cared about! In Soresu I thought I was going to generate -1 Focus!

For those of us who troll on /r/swtor, I launched a topic just for that purpose (much easier to downvote nonconstructive comments into hiding).

But I think it might be worthwhile to do something like that here on forums as well

Please keep Master Strike. Why do you have to change my favorite abilities? First Force Storm and Force Quake get their duration reduced and now you're planning to change the name of my favorite Jedi Knight ability to something that terrible? goddammit!

Good for you!

If the people you are targeting with this already troll on Reddit, you wouldn't need to post it here, would you?
