I wonder who's behind this post...
Seriously though, I hope he doesn't die, we need all the Imperial characters, that aren't eyeless Yogar, we can get.
The reason dummies come up with that and try to enforce it is to explain away why it's not used by people as a tool. Having it the Force sensitive crystals that need to be attuned by a Jedi are good enough explanation.
>Kyber Crystal (Lightsaber Crystal)
>At the heart of every Jedi lightsaber is a kyber crystal found on several planets, most notably the icebound caves of Ilum. This crystal is attuned to the Force, and connected to a Jedi Knight on a deeply personal level. In this way, a lightsaber is an extension of a Jedi's Force awareness. Because Jedi let the Force guide their selection of the crystal, the vibration that the crystal creates in the lightsaber blade helps Jedi center themselves and find balance in the Force. In this way, a Jedi can center his or her attention beyond the distractions of combat. A lightsaber crystal is colorless until first attuned and connected to a Jedi -- at which times it glows either blue or green, or in some rare instances, another shade. From that point on, it retains that hue.
> You will never wear anything as comfy looking a Dookus jammies
Nice try, I know it looks different when you copy and paste it. Unless that was the point. Either way nice one
What does that have to do with anything?
Any person can pick up a lightsaber and use it, like Han did to cut into that Tauntaun and save Luke's life. Or when Cad Bane fought against Kenobi with a light saber for about two seconds. Even that Pantoran chick used a lightasber against Hondo's men in that Insider story.
>Any person can pick up a lightsaber and use it
That was the point of the post, anon.
black imperial uniforms are best uniforms
That sounds fair, either a Force user to find the crystals or attune them or perform maintenance on it or whatever or some combination.
then who is a char? Cause Kylo feels like more of a Scirocco
Reminder that if you hate the Prequels and like the EU you don't belong here.
Abrams said some interesting things about the lightsaber battles in the sequels:
>For Abrams the lightsaber battles in Episode 1 to 3 were “increasingly spectacular and stylised, almost like dance choreography”. “When you look at Star Wars and Empire, they are very different lightsaber battles, but for me they felt more powerful because they were not quite as slick. I was hoping to go for something much more primitive, aggressive and rougher, a throwback to the kind of heart-stopping lightsaber fights I remembered being so enthralled by as a kid.”
but what if I like the prequels and the EU?
I was bummed the Interdictor was destroyed, but it was a good death, so I'm ok with it and Commander Titus lived to fight another day, so I'm happy with that.
>Here's your reply
just a reminder obi wan is the most important character in star wars, if not the best
That's a good thing. They are supposed to look like real, brutal and intense fights, not like dance scenes.
He has hired three Raid actors as advisers for the choreography, so we won't get two old men fighting with canes if you are worrying about this.
Anyone else notice how in Rebels, despite getting shot by a blaster, Stormtroopers don't seem to die and just squirm around. Is Disney trying to tone down the violence with some 'They aren't dead, just sleeping!' bullshit?
Also lack of waifu material, wtf /co/
he cut darth maul in half , saving naboo from a sith lord in phantom
discovered the separatist plot on geonosis in clones
saved luke and leia in revenge
trained luke in a new hope
and he was a smart ass the whole time, with an entire rogues gallery of people that hate him.
Yes, it's been brought up before by a few people but they get ignored like you surely will be.
And yes, if you look at every trooper that gets shot you see that they get qualified as being alive by being shown to be moving afterwards for the curious.
Can't have kids thinking it's okay to kill a tyrannical government that deals in genocide and planet killing, no-no!
>Anyone else notice how in Rebels, despite getting shot by a blaster, Stormtroopers don't seem to die and just squirm around. Is Disney trying to tone down the violence with some 'They aren't dead, just sleeping!' bullshit?
No. We've seen plenty get shot and die. The ones we see squirming likely are dying an agonizing death from the blaster bolt not immediately killing them. Not everyone just dies immediately from a blaster. See: Waxer, Fives.
>Also lack of waifu material, wtf /co/
Tua? Hera? Sabine?
Besides, there's plenty of husbandos to fill the void
even if Filoni keeps killing them off to spite us
There's no way Ilum can be Starkiller Base. The landscapes are entirely different.
Ilum is massive ice sheets and glaciers with a ton of snow.
Starkiller Base is rocks, mountains, forests, and a blanket of snow.
That's because the Lothal Rebels haven't caused any civilian casualties compared to other groups.
When Tarkin said "No Casualties" or whatever, he wasn't referring to Stormtroopers. He was referring to civilians.
>Tua? Hera? Sabine?
>Besides, there's plenty of husbandos to fill the void
Star Wars Rebels is the age of the Husbandos.
>even if Filoni keeps killing them off to spite us
Will he ever stop?
Has anyone brought up Pre Vizsla yet? He had a decent showing even if he didn't outright win any of the duels. Even gave Maul a good run.
The thing to remember, though, is that sword fighting is actually one of the least expressions of the Force, it's just the showiest. This week gave us great examples of how much better they have it over "normies" from Vader activating that dude's grenades with a clench of his fist, or Kanan and Ezra making Stormies look like chumps. Maul could have handled Vizsla with a Force choke but was bound by the rules of engagement - though even then Pre had no restrictions on his Mando toys.
There's just a point at which anyone with the Force dueling with somebody who doesn't have it is usually being very generous. Grievous is an exception, though they did use the Force against him a couple of times. Not just that he's a cyborg but he's a cyborg designed specifically to counter some of the Jedi tricks, or at least alleviate them. His enhanced strength and armor, his claw feet, his multiple arms, his grappling line, etc.
Soundtrack Anon here!
I've uploaded the Star Wars Rebels Season 1 soundtrack for now, but I'm going to do a sweep of the rest of the soundtracks to make sure the files are properly tagged before I upload them. Should have everything uploaded within a few weeks
Forests still take hundreds of years to grow. We also haven't seen any signs of mountains anywhere on Ilum, just massive amount of ice. A change in temperature isn't going to make mountains appear out of nowhere
The line was "more principled than most" not "most peaceful."
That doesn't make any sense in context. There is no reason why Aresko would have been saying, "At least no civilians got hurt!" as if the Empire ever cared about their sheep. Aresko meant the troopers didn't suffer any deaths to play up how valiantly they surely fought against the wiles of the Jedi, who truly lives up to their reputation. i.e. it wasn't our fault we failed, he was a Jedi. And Tarkin wasn't impressed either way.
It does stretch the notion of casualties, given we did see Troopers hurt. Either the writer thought casualties = deaths and nobody caught it or Aresko; was straight up lying to his superior to make himself look better.
A fight in a movie should always look real and engaging. The final battle between Luke and Vader wasn't well choreographed, in fact Luke was just wailing at Vader, but it was such a great emotional climax because Luke felt like a real pissed off human, not like a soulless robot.
I think there should be a mix between astounding choreography and real human emotions. The OT duels were a bit underwhelming, but the PT duels were way too over the top.
>Not if they are transplanted from other planets to help produce oxygen
You don't need to do that in the Star Wars universe, Coruscant has no plant life, except for decorative plans, and it functions perfectly without trees.
Also, does a Death Star planet heat up when the laser is used? Did the Death Star itself have that sort of problem?
Yeah, and I see nothing posted of them.
And seriously no love for the CW girls?
Starkiller Base has that giant trench on the poster, and the smaller one in the trailers. Assuming the FO doesn't just vaporize all the rock, dirt and whatever else needed to make those, they could just be dumped on-planet to form mountains.
Which character do you feel had the ball dropped on the most?
>or Aresko; was straight up lying to his superior to make himself look better.
Let's be honest, this is the real reason.
We do see Troopers being killed, by explosions, neck shots, being thrown out of a speeding truck by the Force and thrown into another trooper chasing them. As I said. some live and some don't.
>Death Star planet heat up when the laser is used?
It's not just about firing it. All the machines that go into creating and maintaining the laser and all the other systems used in the base should produce heat just from running.
That wasn't exactly a victory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTWxWK9_zrU
Ahsoka had some help from her friends and ultimately ran away. She even took a hit from her own "I didn't miss!" attack despite knowing beforehand that it was going to explode.
It's not much different than her fights against Grievous where she's barely able to hold her own and is always forced to escape after, usually with the help of happenstance or backup showing up.
That said, though, Ahsoka is hardly just any Padawan. She's Anakin Skywalker's Padawan. Forget arguments of plot armor or "mary sue" bs complaints, just the fact that she's been able to keep up with Anakin says a lot about her. It's not something that she had in her, as such, his aggressiveness really rubbed off on her. Not always to her benefit but it has made her a pretty fierce and determined fighter.
atleast he got a good showing in clone wars
Just remember that we only saw one escape pod (that didn't have Kanan and Rex in it) after the Interdictor incident. THREE SHIPS and only one confirmed Imperial survivor. Ouch.
Chopper doesn't have enough room on his plating if they ever decide to mark his killcount.
>Yeah, and I see nothing posted of them.
Their, happy now?
Savage, the man only wanted to help his brother, both of them. And one was killed by him and the other watched him die.
They should invest in emergency shut down systems.
Assuming Chopper wouldn't have fucked with any emergency shutdown system. He pulled this shit on an Arquitens that was being used as a command ship. After he got what he wanted he not only fried their systems but apparently preprogrammed exterior doors opening. No emergency vacuum shields, either.
Chopper is a straight up cold steel, calculating serial killer.
But anon, that means the Empire has to actually pay for safety measures and the Empire is so cheap they won't even use safety rails in their engine rooms.
It's been pointed out but the Gungans are the warriors best suited to fucking him up since their boomas just happen to have strong anti-technology capacity. And even then it took Tarpal's willing sacrifice.
All the members of the Separatist Council
Vote for Cloud or Kylo you motherfuckers
>This is no TIE Fighter, boy!
>NO TIE FIGHTER!
We keep hearing about all his victories off-screen at the start of several episodes. I think they enter at the end of every successful campaign he has, that's why he seems so incompetent.
Now that Rex is known specifically as a member of the Rebels what if
Cody is pulled out of retirement to track him down. The one clone better suited than any to know how Rex thinks.
Name one single solitary character from Star Wars better than Guts. I'll wait.
The TCW Seasons One Through Six soundtrack is uploading. I didn't like the washed-out look of the official cover(on the left) though so I edited it(on the right) and re-tagged the files with it.
Should be finished uploading in about 15 minutes(my upload speed is absolute shit). It'll be done when there's 28 tracks in the folder and Cover.png.
The funniest part is there are handrails on the bridges of Arquitens ships, the most saddest of all Star Destroyers.
he does fuck up a lot in the first few episodes, now that i think of it they mostly did show him getting his ass rammed most of the time.
Unlike a certain Sith Lord, Guts doesn't cry over lost limbs.
mace windu, the man asked for a special light saber. The man got some purple drank light saber and some crazy fighting technique i dont even know the name for.
Speaking of, we've seen all kinds of lightsaber designs, including whips and tonfa and Kylo Ren's stupid piece of shit, so how come no one has made a fuckhuge lightsaber like the Dragonslayer?
An ancient Jedi battling a zillo beast with a giant lightsaber would be awesome.
maybe i wouldn't have memory issues if some one would stop deleting canon!
'Who is Guts' he says. top kek
Berserk. Read it.
Funny, because those are the ones where we hear how unstoppable he is and all his victories. In the prologues of each arc (Malvolence, R2 being lost etc.). We just begin at the parts where his offensives stall.
And Guts would find it cute. How Mace Windu would find being bisected by the Dragon Slayer, I don't know.
He didn't seem to like his arm getting cut off though. He just kind of screamed about it.
Didn't the old republic already had that
I think the architects of the republic And the Imperium are just stupid.
And why should Sheev care about a couple of more minions
ive been on here since 2005... i think, those people in /a/ are a strange breed even for us.
every now and then i go there for bleach. there so hateful, they have enough hate to give sheev a boner for a month
Sheev dismissed handrails on the Death Star since it would drive up the cost by 30%.
A Death Star is Born will always be canon.
All of them.
Only chance he'd have is if some Soul Caliber shit happens where his sword wouldn't get turned to molten paste the moment it touches a lightsaber.
But then that's a universe where Vader can do this
one of them... does his eyes make you rage?
Yeah, He reminded me of young Rutger Hauer.
>nuCanon that no physical weapon
Uwotm8? Cortosis is back.
I dunno, bro. Guts seems way to crazy for Force stuff to work on him.
If you haven't listened to the Darth Plagueis audiobook yet, do yourself and your ears a favor and check it out.
Doesn't look like staff, to be honest, my man.
I like Guts, but the abilty to squeeze off blood vessels (which is how force choke is described.) Or crush organs and bone through armor would fuck even him up.
On top of that, vaapad is a style that brushes close to the dark side. Meaning mace might actually go dark side feeding off Guts hate.
>power level trolling
goddamn SWG you're better than this.
Post concept art that didn't make it.
>electrostaves that couldn't be cut, not just on the electric bits.
The staves were diced in TCW. If there was a scene where the middle wasn't cut it was a graphical/technical goof up.
The thread is shit anhway, post B-1 battle droid porn pls.
>Despite this, various portions of the suit could still withstand lightsaber hits with a fairly little damage.
How quickly we forget
Mental stability means jack shit against mind fuckery. You can be a Guts fan all you want, it doesn't mean he's OP in any setting just because he's OP in his.
have you been ignoring light sabers this whole time or are you just going to pretend he doesn't have his?
>Super battle droid! Take it down!
Still mad no clone wars in the new battlefield
Unless you do this. Jedi and Sith are pretty frail.
Has anyone been keeping up on the Darth Vader comic series? I stopped when the star wars mega stopped being updated, at issue 6. The art is bad, but the story was fairly interesting.
You'll need a lightsaber then because Dragonslayer will be molten slag
Weird, as I don't think they are shown to ever strike that part in the movie. Either way in TCW if you're strike hard enough the electrostaff gives up and embraces death and gets diced.
If they are ever added, I hope they get the wrist rockets still. Also that they model it after the BF1 system rather than BF2; much easier to shoot rockets followed by the gun in a fluid motion in BF1.
It just entered it's third story arc where it's Vader vs an entire rebel group.
You sure about that?
go back and keep reading
it's fucking godly
I hope we get a new vaapad user in nucanon. Maybe one of the actors from the raid that's going to be in sequel.
He has to get close enough first. I'll agree Guts can take Mace when he can decisively beat Zod at full strength with no one bailing him out.
If he was actually nerfed in the new canon, that would actually mean something.
Because I'm sure otherwise, it's an amazing general. And you make such wonderful contributions to it.
Seriously, when will the indignant shitposters like you take a hike forever? You literally bring nothing to the thread but complaining about the thread. You want to talk about something else? Then do it Just don't bitch about it when people talk about things you don't want to talk about.
No problem. Just glad to help out. I'll start uploading another TCW soundtrack soon(the tracks from Kiner's website linked in the OP) but I'm waiting on a slight edit of my edited cover before I do so. I'll see if I can get the Republic Commando Soundtrack uploaded in a few minutes.
I threw together a quick cover, but idk if I like it or if I should just use the game cover?
Same reason they continue to use TIE Fighters in the face of them getting blown up by the score:
It's cheap. Who cares if a couple hundred die? That means the enemy has a couple hundred shots less to repel the next wave.
>the Empire keep using this junk ?
Because they do not care about their meat shields, they have millions of planets to get millions of other recruits from. Sheev cares about quantity, rather than quality. Plus those sad parents that get their son's dead body probably feeds into the suffering he creates.
>He hasn't been in the past two episodes
Next week had better be a Zeb episode goddamnit.
>getting mad because Guts is cooler than edgelord Windu
>Trying this hard
>Somehow trying even harder
Okay stop. Seriously
>getting mad that Berserk is better than Rebels
I like Rebels, but calm down dude.
I really wish you idiots would just Ignore and Report. Honestly, this thread was doing fine, until two or three of you just had to shit it up.
Take this power-leveling, my character can beat up your character bullshit to /trash/.
So Children of the Force 2: Electric Boogaloo then.
>Take this power-leveling, my character can beat up your character bullshit to /trash/.
That stuff has always been a staple of these threads though. It was in the last thread and the thread before that. It didn't bother you then.
The problem with the thread is too many people trying to police it and make it exclusive to them. No dissenting opinions allowed, no one may have a discussion, etc. It's fucking awful when those faggots show up to the thread and bitch about harmless things like discussing the EU and criticisms of the show.
Thanks man, at least someone is being a bro.
>It's fucking awful when those faggots show up to the thread and bitch about harmless things like discussing the EU and criticisms of the show
Quit being a whiny bitch, we have discussed the EU and our frustrations with Rebels and other shows perfectly fine here, it's when trolls start doing nothing but slinging shit and greentexting nonsense and only speak in reaction images does this thread go to shit. I'll say it again, Ignore and Report the fucking trolls.
Damn, the only time our threads are not shit is when the holidays are gone and school is back in session.
What do you guys think about this for the cover of the Republic Commando Soundtrack? It's something I whipped up in paint since I recently wiped my computer and haven't had the chance to re-install everything
There isn't an official cover. Right now they just have a really small version of the game's cover art with "Soundtrack" in the corner.
Basically this image from google except really small and almost illegible
Hardcase, that man was a good one. He went out like a champ and saved the day.
Republic Commando Soundtrack should be uplaoding in a minute or two.
Here's the link to the soundtracks folder again:
Good score, great graphics. It still sort of feels like the Battlefront of old
Feels like every other multiplayer shooter too, guns are the same old guns, No PT stuff at all, half the multiplayer modes suck, only like 4 planets
The atmosphere is top notch, and lots of game mode variety
the biggest problem is the lack of content. it is very thin and without a single player campaign.
If you are dying for a star wars game of any kind, you will probably like it.
I remember way back I was reading something in those old RPG books. It was something about Barabels and temper. Basically some Dugs were antagonizing a group of a Barabels. But before any violence was had, a Jedi stepped in. The Barabels, having great respect for the Jedi asked him what to do. He told them a Dugs insults are a dime a dozen and shouldn't been taken seriously at all.
Remember this when you're here, my friends. Don't humor the Dugs.
So which of the canon books should I pick up next guys? I have enough credit at a local store to pick up three. I was thinking A New Dawn, Lords of the Sith, and Twilight Company. Thus far, I've read:
The first two Servants of the Empire books
Just watched the most recent episode.
>implying the Rebels destroyed two Destroyers and an Interdictor in one fell swoop this early in the rebellion
That just seems like way too big of a victory at this stage in the war. Makes later events seem less significant.
Destroyers? As in Star Destroyers? As in Imperial I-class Star Destroyers?
Maybe the EU made me biased, but those are supposed to be kind of a big deal right? One Star Destroyer generally being a match for at least two to four smaller cruisers?
Now that I'd like to see.
"With this batch of clones I changed their Y chromosome for an X chromosome"
"I wanted to know if Jango Fett would've been hot as a chick"
They got into the most important room of the indictor using jedi skills and one of the greatest clone troopers alive, and even the idea of using the magnets against every ship was a risk for the good guys.
>That just seems like way too big of a victory
Did they achieve a strategic or tactical goal? Did they gain a significant advantage? Did they gain territory, supplies or equipment? No? Then it wasn't a victory.
Would you say the Vietnamese scored major victories by destroying US equipment?
Maybe? I dunno, just said he had plans for her, that's all.
Nah, she was supposed to die on her last appearance originally but Filoni changed his mind. I doubt they changed her fate in the show only to have her die again.
>playing a Record Keeper clone
>playing a Game of War clone
>playing a Diablo clone
Of course I do because they consist of two Jedi and a team of highly skilled commandos like Rex and Sabine. I view them as any commando rebel unit. They excel at hit and run but if they got caught out in the open like in Siege of Lothal they get creamed. They know their skills and they excel at using them.
They're not a huge threat to the Empire just a thorn in their side. I look at them like the Vietcong. They have some decent infiltration and commando skills but they cannot bring anything to the table in terms of conventional warfare. Their greatest skill like the VC is convincing the people they are the good guys.
>I doubt they changed her fate in the show only to have her die again.
This is Filoni we're talking about mate, he'll stab you first and then, when you're in agony, will dig the knife even deeper.
From the man himself. Don't assume HK-47 is canon just because he's in a post-Disney game.
It was accidentally destroyed during the Kanan and Inquisitors duel. It was not intentionally destroyed by the Rebels.
That was more Imperial than deliberate sabotage. If the Inquisitor wasnt being stupid he would have staged the duel in a different area or had a security team clean them up.
fuck canon, every thing you like is canon because disney doesn't own you
Someone should ask Pablo about Galactic Defense, since it's what the Wook continue to use as evidence for Boba being mandalorian(although they at least moved it into his "behind the scenes" section)
I understand however, I agree with him because I've played the game.
It's a very shallow game that's unbalanced and boring as fuck. It's a safe Star Wars game that has nothing on the older Battlefront games. It's a cheap cash in to the hype. It makes me worried about the future of Star Wars.
>Count Dooku: What if I told you that the Republic was now under the control of a dark lord of the Sith?
Obi-Wan: No, that's not possible. The Jedi would sense it.
Count Dooku: The Dark Side has clouded their vision. Hundreds of senators are now under the influence of a Sith lord called Darth Sidious.
Obi-Wan: I don't believe you.
Hmmm. Was Dooku supposed to tell Obi-wan all of this?
It was kind of a two-pronged thing.
Plan A: Obi-Wan goes "wow that sucks let me join you" and then he and Dooku kill Sidious, Dooku becomes the new Sith master and Obi-Wan is the new Sith apprentice
Plan B: Obi-Wan and the Jedi go "nah that's bullshit" and the Sith's secrets are currently safe by virtue of the Jedi considering Dooku untrustworthy and thus not believing him even though he told them the truth.
Since Obi-Wan flatly rejected Dooku's offer, Plan B ended up kicking in. Sure, they later agreed to keep an eye on the senate just in case but that didn't amount to much and they put that on the backburner, and by the time they started devoted more of their time and attention to the idea it was already too late.
Mandalorian puberty is a hell of a thing
I'd say yes and for one very simple reason: a Sith Lord actually telling the truth was so unlikely it made what he said, which WAS the truth, something the Jedi refused to believe. It actually defused their suspicions about the Council.
Later on in TCWs they start thinking again about all this and wondering, but it was too little too late and they never suspected the Chancellor was the true threat.
It's exactly the kind of gambit Sheev would come up with. Let's face it he seemed to get off on flaunting his duel nature in the Jedi's face with them never suspecting. Like actually sitting with Anakin and talking about "Darth Plagueis the Wise." He just gave a complimentary title to a fucking Sith Lord right in front of a Jedi and detailed somehow knowing the business of a Sith Lord without Anakin ever suspecting his jolly old friend Palpatine was evil.
I bet the people with normal names are the ones who get made fun of. Like all of the Imperials laugh at Veers because his name is Maximillian. His parents should've chosen a good, strong, dignified name like Firmus or Lorth.
See, when Luke's friends call him Wormie, they're doing him a favor. Luke is a total pussy name, Wormie though, that's a good strong name. You tell someone "hey Wormie's coming" and they imagine this big guy with a huge chest who's clearly a great fighter, a master pilot, and gets all the girls.
Pic related, it's Wormie.
I wish I knew, almost every character that we know by last name who later has their first name revealed has been bizarre. Speaking of which, Ackbar's first name is Gial. I'm still dreading the revelation of Dooku's first name because you know it's going to be awkward.
Sheev was the weirdest, until we got swamped with it here. Then again with what people are naming their kids now, the Star Wars ones look tame in comparison, or at least less foolish.
>In 2002, Piett was given the first name "Firmus" in Daniel Wallace's The New Essential Guide to Characters. Wallace derived the name from the Latin word meaning "strong" or "reliable."
Fair enough. But that's not saying much.
Since some anons know some stuff about the movies, are they keeping Mara Jade canon? I remember reading about how of all the EU characters, she was the only one they were allowed to still make toys of or whatever. If Rey is Luke's kid, are they keeping Mara as Luke's wife and Rey's mom?
