Why didn't Ani jumped into the red circle? The fact this is so overlooked makes me think everyone else is retarded, and makes Lucas a complete hack.

I understand the whole "he's so cocky and confident he thought he could jump over OB1 and get away with it", but it makes no sense at all.

obi-wan would still have high ground

>>64617102
You're right. Anakin was acting irrational and got his shit fucked up because of it. I love when OP answers his own question.
>>
He probably still would have gotten burned if he landed that close to the lava

they were only protected on those little platforms because of shielding
>>
>>64617102
Jumping into your circle would give obi wan an even higher ground. Do you have any idea how retarded your argument is?
>>
YOU FUCKING MORON! Did you not see how he fucking lit up just by being that close? I swear 99% of prequel questions can be answered using common sense

Tried to recreate ObiWans defeat of Darth Maul.

bullshit. He remained there like 20 seconds after getting chopped up perfectly fine until he suddenly and magically burst into flames, which again made no fucking sense.

>>64617146
le reddit meme about the high ground. He could have jumped there and continue the fight.
>>
>>64617102
>it makes no sense at all

Obi-Wan knew he could bait Anakin into doing something stupid
>>
In your version, Obi Wan would still be in an overwhelmingly advantageous position. The logical move would be to wait until the platform moves and the terrain changes to a more favourable one for Anakin. Remember, Obi Wan came to kill Anakin, not the other way around, Obi Wan can't just leave so Anakin can play the waiting game. The problem is he's consumed by hate and doesn't think clearly
>>
>>64617209
That's true. Fighting sith lords was his specialty.
>>
>>64617209
That's the whole fight if you watch it. It's just Ben running away from Anakin until he pisses him off enough to, like you said, do something stupid.

Is that the enterprise in the background?
>>
>>64617197
Did you not see how even that fight was? Youre basically cornering yourself into not being able to move. Lava on one side, an equal adversary on the other.

Going to that spot would mean he could not make another mistake and likely death.
>>
If he jumped near the lava, it would be effortless for obi to force push him in. Earlier they blasted each other away, but he isn't going to be able to defend that while jumping. So he had to at least jump further into land.
>>
>>64617197
Seriously, look up how having the high ground works in sword fighting. It would have put Obiwan at an extreme advantage and it would have cornered Anakin.

Why didn't he just use the controls on the platform to give himself the high ground?

"Making no sense" is not a valid counterpoint when you talk about human decisions. Five seconds in Google can provide you an assload of examples of people doing dumbest shit on a dare, which is what Anakin did. Particularly when under mind-altering substances. And Anakin had the dark side for that and was notably not in control of his emotions throughout the whole sequence.

Then OBIWan walks backwards up the hill for even higher ground.

DUDE ITS SYMBOLISM TO OBI WAN HAVING THE MORAL HIGH GROUND IN THEIR CONFLICT

Maybe if you're a fucking retard who does not remember that one of established Force powers is absorbing or redirecting energy, from blaster bolts to Force lighthing. Both fighters only survived that close to lava because they were shielding themselves all the time, when Anakin's grip on the Force starts slipping because of wounds, convection starts to doing its work normally on him.

ONLY ONE OF US CAN HAVE THE HIGHEST GROUND
>>
>>64617159
This.

Lets not forget High ground does not always mean auto-win
>>
>>64617480
To be fair, Maul was a retard and literally froze in place for the duration of Obi Wan's jump and let himself be cut in half
>>
>>64617136
>>64617146
People often fail to consider convection when imagining scenarios like this. That being said, so did Lucas, mainly times throughout this duel.
>>
>>64617480
BECAUSE Obiwan regained the high ground
>>
>>64617500
To be fair Anakin was a retard too and probably thought Obi Wan would do the same.
>>
>>64617480
Obi-Wan had the high ground from a certain point of view.
>>
why do people keep making fun of this, higher ground has been an advantage since the beginning of warfare and even to this day is a huge advantage/
>>
>>64617521
But by that logic Anakin shouldnt have died. He gained the high ground.

Unless youre saying Maul is a manlet. Then kek
>>
>>64617560
>expecting /tv/ memes to make sense
>>
Why did the jedi fight like it's a Cirque Du Soleil's dance routine? Why after figthing endlessly on lava they're not even tired or dirt? Because Lucas is a hack
>>
>>64617572
Kek
>>
>>64617560
thats bullshit. Remember when both of them were climbing that bigass vertical structure, Obi was above Anakin and did nothing. Also remember when OB1 jumped into that pipe? Anakin could have chopped it off and Obi would have fallen to the lava.
>>
>>64617641
thats lucas being a hack not a criticism of the concept of higher ground in warfare or combat
>>
>>64617641
>climbing the bigass verticle structure

You mean when Obiwan was using 1 hand to hold on while swinging his saber where it physically couldnt reach Anakin? If Anakin was in range he would have died. Its easier to swing your sword down then to swing it up.

Its not the weight, its the arc youd need.

Even with just your arm, its easier to swing it side to side downwards then it is upwards
