  1. I... actually can see this happening. Remember, I always considered the Jedi as a degenerated order, incapable of understanding a proper moral compass as well as incapable of common sense, and identifying the wrongs of themselves and their own allies (the cataylist of the Clone War). Because of their lack of proper education, their ways of thinking are often convoluted and narrow. I wouldn't be surprised if they teached their young that there is only light and dark, and nothing else. Barris reminds me of those group of students in The Witcher 3 that were very anti-religious but had the most weirdest and violent outlook around it. It's like they are so neo-atheist that they act like it's a religion itself. (Like the Jedi, the minds of medieval times aren't the most stable and precise). I wouldn't use Barris though, rather create another Jedi character with a 'patriotic' personality, that after witnessing the wrongs of the Jedi and Republic, think that if the light fails, then the dark is the only other option.
  2. Hey guys, can we all remain cautious about SWBF2 EA. I'm glad that they added Clone Wars as well, but SWBF EA had a lot more problems then just lacking a campaign and eras. The fundamental gameplay design discouraged coordination and tactics in combat (since they use loadouts instead of classes, thus you have to run blind at enemies since you don't know their weaponry until they test it on you). Ship to ship battles were bear bones, they lacked a variety of ground vehicles, and the maps are extremely linear as if it was an Overwatch game.

    I'm open to them improving, but we need to see before we judge and buy.

    For all we know, they made add the eras but input as minimal variety as possible, and that is a possibility considering the image I've seen only contains Venators and Providence-class destroyers. No Acclamators, no Munificent frigates, No Recusant-class light destroyers, no Lucrehulks, etc.

      As great as that sounds, it seems highly unlikely, unless DICE does an 'EA taboo' and allows mod support. But alas, to EA (and properly DICE at this point) eliminating replayability is their priority, to maintain their excuse to shovel out sequels every year or two.

      Another excuse I think EA and DICE would hold onto is that 'it's asking for too much' (But they are almost a trillion dollar company so I don't understand how they couldn't fund it).

      @corshy1 i agree with you, i am being cautious, however, i'm growing in confidence that the trailer on the 15h will give us greater details that will clarify our doubts.

      @corshy1 I don't think that it's asking for too much at all. Both KOTORs consistently rank at the top of the pile of quality Star Wars games. The era has a lot of recognition for not ever being in the movies. And we'll never get it if we don't talk about it. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. KOTOR III is a pipe dream but I thought that era being included in Battlefront or a similar type of game would be a good compromise. TOR tried to cram in as much KOTOR as it could. I think just putting those eras into Battlefront would be best. If you're gonna dream, dream big. But I don't expect anything.

  3. You know, what aggravates me about the prequel haters is their argument about how 'politics ruined Star Wars.' Even though there was plenty in the original trilogy:

    Because of this, TFA forcibly ripped the politics, and the context, away from the movie, resulting in little value between the wiped out Republic and First Order.

    The real problem was that the politics were presented in a convoluted way, not because fictional politics are bad. If they summed it up saying 'The Trade Federation, in protest of over-taxation of their corporation, blockaded a high source of resources. They launched an invasion to occupy the planet so that the can keep up the protest and continue business.' [I don't see how the treaty fits in any of this] Then I think more people would of found it intriguing then boring. Still I don't think they should be shouting for fictional politics to be hanged.

    As for if the prequal politics talk made sense? I don't know, I didn't grab every detail except the main ideas (which I found well done).

      I completely agree,I haven't seen the films in a long while so I forgot why people hated the politics in the prequel films. But,I read the novelizations of the prequel trilogy and believed that the politics were very enjoyable and essential to read about.

      I like space politics. Much more fun than real life politics.

    I really hope Star Wars modders actually do great shit with this game (without EA bullying them).

    I want to fly around as a Marine Droid just firing rockets at passing ships.

      My graphics card doesn't run that game well.

      I had serious video lag with it, but I got a new graphics card for Christmas, so hopefully it will run better now.

    The CIS fanbase are small and isolated from each other compared to giants like the Republic and Imperial fanbases. It would be fun to unite as many CIS fans as possible to just appreciate or analyse concept of the CIS, discuss Star Wars, other things, etc.

      I am a CIS fan tbh, but I prefer the other factions more, except the rebels, the only thing I like about them is when they get owned.

      All they need to do is drop the comedic relief pretext. Plenty of sources depict the droids as serious and they're much better that way.

  7. I don't see TIE Pilot cockpits falling apart after sustaining enemy fire, and the TIE pilots screaming in response. I don't hear loud stormtrooper screams as their chopped or shot. Where is the detail when imperials die? Heck, I heard more detail from the droid army deaths in TCW then in Rebels.

    Also, there seems to be a lot more clone death then I expected. I know technically far more droids were chopped to pieces or shot then clones (since they're often in their writer's stupid phase), but at least they weren't light when instigating clone casualties.

      I laughed so hard at this. All the grunting and groaning and death noises that Dee Bradley Baker had to do.

  8. While I still don't like the Force Awakens. This deleted scene is f**king great.

      They may have thought that he had no reason to be on that planet in the first place.

      But I would of just developed a reason. Say that the planet is close to Jakku, and he came to either find her there or hire a few bounty hunters to take back the ship, or both.

      @corshy1 The reason for Unkar Plutt being there is easy. It was already stated in the movie that the Millennium Falcon was a 'dirty' ship. That's how Han Solo tracked it and originally picked it up. That's the supposed reason why they went to Takodana, to get on a clean ship to get BB-8 to the Resistance base so the First Order couldn't track them the rest of the way (but then the Falcon goes to D'Qar anyway so oops). It's easy to imagine Unkar Plutt getting a friend to give him a ride or hiring a ride to go out after Rey to get his ship back.

      But that just brings up another issue. If the Millennium Falcon is a 'dirty' ship that anyone can track, why did Rey use it to go to Luke on Ahch-To? Would the First Order not be immediately able to track them down and finally reach Luke Skywalker? Was the Falcon cleaned up while they were at the Resistance base? Doesn't seem like it since they used it to go to Starkiller Base and then off to Ahch-To as fast as they could. Didn't seem like there was enough time, especially if you measure it considering Rey was captured and freed herself on Starkiller Base yet Finn and his group make it there to get her while she is still roaming around on the base.

  9. You know, I complain a lot about how the CIS military and Clone army were so black and white. And as a droid fan, it did alienate me from canon. But I wondered why I kept watching and still enjoying TCW, especially when comparing it to Rebels (since it lacks cinematography, detail and scale).

    This kinda answers my question.

      If you listen to their stated problem with the Legends story regarding Grievous, you can clearly tell they either skimmed over the material without actually reading it, or, simply didn't understand it because it was too complex of storytelling than what they're used to. Either that, or they're just dismissive of it. Perhaps if they spent less time jutting out Kit Fisto's jaw because they thought he needed to look more dashing and heroic as Kit Fisto should be. Talk about shallow. Okay, that's not fair as some people's jobs are character design but it's indicative of what was ultimately wrong with TCW as a whole.

      I can't wait for @Timewatch to redeem Grievous' character.

      I know he's got one of the chips that makes him angrier removed, thus he's more clear headed. But I hope we still see him sometimes become the enigma of death and hatred at specific fitting times. (Like how the Banking Clan bombed his shuttle, or an enemy Jedi's excuse for supporting the Huk if he ever asks).

      ---

      "What are you talking about, your race is the most violent and barbaric on your planet. For the sake of peace, you'd be better starving then living."

      His towering form, his raised arms, lowered. The Jedi thought he broke his pride or spirit at first but it seemed too sudden and out of his class to seem so. But he smiled on the prospect that he wiped his intimidating stance off his body.

      To grievous, he was smiling at his faint memories of all the breathing bodies on the ground.

      "You need to cease breathing." He said in a surprisingly smoother, quieter voice. Before zooming to bounce the Jedi lightsaber off of his two upper sabers, as his two lower swords of condensed burning energy severed the Jedi's upper legs.

      "This feeling... It's been so long since I felt this. Was all that aggression in my new life so empty... Because I've never felt so determined to tear someone's flesh from flesh!"

      The Jedi's false viewpoint was inspired by how the Krogen acted in Mass Effect 2. They'd properly think of the same with the Krogen, but the difference here is that the Senate made them think the Kaleesh was Krogen like.

      Insha'allah, I will eventually get around to writing that redemption. Working nearly full time and taking a class on top of that sure is painful for my free time though. 

  10. You know. It's hard to find modern war military anime with no mecha, and when I do find one, it's usually doesn't have that much depth. (I'm looking at you Valkryrie Chronicles the anime, with it's one-shot one-kill tanks, lack of variety, and boring display of strategies, barely scratching the surface of your gaming father).

    But that anime was fun though. I mean yeah it's technically not classified as tank warfare, but a sport called Tankery, but it has more depth in variety, strategy and tactics then in most war anime I have seen. I had an endless amount of fun with this show, and I god damn hope other shows look at it as inspiration on how to execute tactical and strategic warfare well.

    All I'm looking for now is an animated show that's basically OOM-9's Revenge but on a separate universe. I want in-depth warfare on a large scale, not one or the other. (Basically only Code Geass can fulfil that quota, but it does resort to OP mechs to render strategy useless sometimes).

    Oh and no exposition dumps explaining a plan before doing a plan (sometimes it's justified). It makes the follow-up sequences boring and predictable. Just showing us the plan in action is more fun. (Again, I'm looking at you Valkyrie Chronicles, the anime).

  12. She may have developed a minor attachment to the Rebellion later into the movie, but still maintains some major problems with it (like how elements of it killed her father, and being very bureaucratic as if it were the Galactic Senate), but she may have sympathised with their main goal as her father did. Maybe she agrees with their purpose then the organisation itself.
  13. Hey @ZakoBattledroid can you fufill my wonder here.

    In TCW, the droid army were very bad in performance, yet they've managed to take a lot of clone character lives. Why is that? Did I underestimate the effectiveness of their numbers?

      It's ok. I put this as a status update for everyone to discuss, I just specifically wanted Zako's perspective as well.

      Yours seems to be a pretty good explanation.

    3. Timewatch

      Timewatch

      It's due to TCW being Republic propaganda. Not even memeing. TCW almost always shows Republic victories, and when they get defeated, it's a noble last stand kind of defeat (see: Scipio). Yet, the Republic didn't win the war within 6 months. Clearly, they suffered just as many defeats, and TCW simply didn't show them. 

    4. ZakoBattledroid

      @corshy1 Because there are tons of clone characters, many of them lasting a very long time. There are so many named clone characters that the Law of Averages has to come into effect at some point, even in a show like TCW.
