...Zagan, could you possibly mind combining all of these into a single thread? You've pushed many threads back quite a bit by making an individual thread for each and every template, which is sort of unfair to others also seeking criticism. It also actually makes it HARDER for me to critique them all, as I'm unlikely to hunt down every thread...

Yeah well I don't know what to say about that, I've post a thread in this very forum asking on how to present my project and it was suggested to made a thread for each one. That way people can comment only the one that interest them. When first posting (a month ago) I've staggered the posting of the thread over nearly a week as to not have all the thread at the same time in the forum.
But sidhe3141 chose to comment on all of them simmultaneously so yeah it take lot of place.
I appologized for that.
While I would love to hear your comment, the template are currently seeing play so I'm unlikely to change them unless I've discovered (or someone point out) a broken combo with it.
Still thanks for your interest.

I don't understand what you mean here.

Basically, if you stand still long enough while flanked, you punch one of them while kicking the one behind you.


Nice.

The one behind you is treated as though you were making an off-hand attack against it.
