>>64477623 The whole point of the tie fighter was that they were fast and cheap to produce due to their lack of armor and shielding, showing the empire's preference for disposable pilots over quality ones with quality ships, needed for a quickly expanding empire.
>>64477774 TIEs are un-shielded/un-armored and cheap so they can be fast and maneuverable. They are like the Japanese Zeros of the SW universe. Unfortunately, they decided to make the bulky, much more heavily armed X-Wings even more maneuverable than them in TFA for some retarded reason.
They get shot down all the time because the "It'z The Force" plot device (plot armor) bullshit, same reason why stormtroopers still manage to miss every shot on the heroes even after being trained for blaster-rifle combat from childhood.
I'm just happy to not see them portrayed as 100% pieces of garbage throughout the whole movie, like they were in every part of the OT, because I've always loved the design. I'm glad JJ didnt do any stupid shit like replace all the TIE designs with the curved-wing interceptor types (and then have Poe shoot down 10 of them in 10 seconds like he did with the TIEs anyway)
>>64477662 obviously because Rey was strong with the force. The Force is nothing but plot armor that makes it so a character can do anything and not fail. Was Lando or Wedge strong with the force? No? But how the fuck did they fly so fast through that extremely small 100 mile-long tunnel to the reactor on the first try? Especially lando in the milennium falcon, that thing is a lot bigger than most people seem to realize. But it didn't matter, it's like you could say "the force" protected them anyway just because they were part of Luke's group
I would love so much to see a single TIE fighter pilot dominate a bunch of "superior" X-Wings resistance pilots. Someone like the FO version of poe dameron (and who doesn't die within one minute of his first appearance).
Barring that I want to see more of the resistance/main characters using hijacked TIE fighters. I'm sick of seeing them being incompetent and getting blown up while accomplishing nothing.
>3PO appears with stupid red arm >think "damn is this supposed to make him look more rebel-like or what the fuck were they thinking" >"oh, hi, I'm C3PO, maybe you didn't recognise me because of this red arm" >nobody in the film gives a fuck about 3PO >"well, I'm leaving. I need this arm to get fixed" >3PO doesn't contribute anything else to the film
So he'll probably appear in some spin-off or whatever and it will be explained why he had this red arm and thousands of bloggers and redditors will jerk off to this magic connection between the series. BRAVO JJ, BRAVO
