The board for discussing all things Star Wars!

This thread serves as a simple introduction.


• Here are some essentials to getting started on the board and integrating into the community.

1: Check out the board's CyTube channel for streams and live chats (feel free to edit the playlist if you're registered on the site): https://cytu.be/r/star-wars

2: We are currently working on starting our own alternative to Wookieepedia. Once its up, a link to it will be posted here.

3: Don't be afraid to ask for info, sauce or links about SW comics, books, games, etc. We're always happy to share.

4: Learn some freaking Huttese, you scocha kungs.

5: Fair warning. Diehard Disneyfags and Namefags can and will be mocked by the locals.

6: Always check the catalog.

7: Credits are accepted, but truguts are preferred.

The Rules:

• The rules here are simple, we live by and follow the rules and laws of Hutt Space. Which means we barely follow any real rules here unless its illegal or stupid. Just don't post CP, don't samefag, don't spam, don't do anything that will attract glowniggers, and keep shit on topic as I don't like banning or deleting shit, unless its necessary, like spam, cp, brownpill shit and raids. Off-topic shit will not be deleted either, but it will be anchored (unless its scifi-related and in relation to us), so just make a Meta general for that kind of shit.

May the Force be with you, troopers.

Imperial /k/ommando Thread: No Lightsabers Allowed Edition Stormtrooper 01/01/2020 (Wed) 17:53:32 No.1504 [Reply] [Last]
Time to talk about blasters, slugthrowers, and other non-lightsaber weapons and designs. Which is the most practical, powerful or aesthetically pleasing? What would you take with you when the Day of the Rebellion comes and SHTF? Superweapons are also allowed but only the weapon, all fleet discussion goes in the ship thread.
34 posts and 14 images omitted.
>>2806 Is slug throwers being good against Jedi a notable thing in the EU? Seems pretty retarded that the Force couldn't be used to block bullets. If they too fast for that, then then it would have to be assumed that the blaster bolts actually go as slow as shown in movies, which would be even more stupid.
>>2819 With slugthrowers I think it's more like it's effective against lightsabers since if a jedi tries to deflect the projectile it will just turn into molten metal and splash their face. I think when fighting jedi it's better to use a variety of weapons and tactics like flame throwers and such.
>>2820 The Jedi could just use the Force to stop the bullets. Surely it can't be harder than how Vader (pretty effortlessly) stopped blaster shots with his glove when he couldn't be arsed to whip out his glowstick. Peashooters being good against Jedi feels like another of those "me clever, me use me logic in this space themed fantasy" idiocies that aren't actually smart in either the context of reality or the fictional setting. You know, like figuring out that hitting something while going really fast delivers plenty of energy, and retroactively making everyone involved in space battles retarded in the previous continuity.
Another thing to consider is the psychological power of walkers. A tank is already intimidating with its size and noise but a walker strikes fear in an even more primal manner. By being tall and anthropomorphic, they give the enemy the feeling of facing a giant, as if it were not a machine but another sentient, much more powerful than himself. The noise, too, is even greater. I could feel this myself when facing AT-STs on Dark Forces games when I was younger. And this ties in perfectly to the Empire's use of fear as an instrument of control.
>>2819 >>2822 It's entirely possible to use the Protection power to deflect slugs, but you'll run out of juice eventually. It still makes sense to use slugthrowers against Jedi because it takes a lot more effort to block something with Protection than it does to use the saber. >then it would have to be assumed that the blaster bolts actually go as slow as shown Blaster bolts aren't lasers. Near as anybody can tell, they're spun plasmoids which actually do travel as quickly as you see - which is to say, comparable to slugs. They may be described as lasers, but it's commonly held that this is some sort of slang because blaster bolts obviously don't behave like lasers.

Is there any comic that focuses on the civillian government or just civillian life of the CIS? And I mean stuff besides TCW.
>>2817 The Jedi: Yoda comic sort of explores the Sephi a bit. There's not really much of a government or difference in civilian life with the CIS. Its just an alliance between different industries and rich assholes who want more benefits and those who just think the Republic sucks and needs some serious reorganization. The CIS senate from TCW is pretty much nothing like how the CIS was previously depicted.
>>2740 >I think the CIS could win if they played a war of attrition. The Republic would probably win. Though many industrial powerhouses joined the CIS it was at its strongest in the periphery of the galaxy. The wealthiest and most developed Core and surrounding layers mostly didn't secede.

Why the TIE Fighter is a good ship Stormtrooper 01/15/2020 (Wed) 18:10:12 No.1841 [Reply] [Last]
Guaranteed Rebelboo Butthurt incoming Let me tell you fags why this ship is actually probably one of the best Starfighters of it's generation. For starters lots of retards tend to try and compare it to the X-Wing in an unfair comparison chart neglecting the fact that the ship is actually 20 years older than the X-Wing so they refuse to compare it to it's real competition like the R-41, Z-95 or even Y-Wing which for all purposes it absolutely dominates over. Most Rebel Scum tend to cite it's lack of shields. Most Rebel Scum before they got ships like the X-Wing ended up dead. For starters while it does lack shields, the TIE Fighter is known for taking a glancing hit or two but it's armor protection is not what it should be reliant on. The TIE Fighter for all purposes is a pair of powerful cannons strapped to a highly efficient engine that not only gives it considerable speed but lets it turn on a dime. A TIE Fighter in fact will out-turn an X-Wing in a dogfight and for the Rebel Scum that are unfortunate enough to not have the privilege of flying a toy payed for by spoilt senator daughters misusing daddy's trust fund money, well we have found none left alive to comment. Next what the uneducated masses wrongly criticise is the lack of life support and hyperdrive. They think this limits the ship's range but forget it gives it it's greatest advantage. Not only does it help reduce cost for a ship that is already remarkably cheap and easy to maintain, repair and replace, but it also helps to significantly reduce the energy signature of the craft. Many a deluded fool has found them suddenly descended upon by the Empire with virtually no warning and in nearly all cases the TIE Fighter has been granted the luxury of firing the first shot in an engagement, an advantage that cannot be understated. About the only thing you can truly criticise this piece of perfection for is that is now deserving a true worthy replacement to carry on it's legacy. Now with this information at hand, care to remind everyone why the TIE Fighter is bad again, you Rebel Scum!

>>1841 >comparing between X wing mid-class fighter vs light weight Tie fighter I played the game back when SW pilot simulator game at its prime when it started. (DOS version) https://lucasfilm.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_X-Wing https://lucasfilm.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_TIE_Fighter Tie figther was design for lightweight low armour unit and have no sheild. If I have to choose between A-fighter and tie fighter which one is best, definitely will go for A-fighter.
>>1879 A-Wings are expensive though. You could just get a medium craft instead for less pain and credits. Its too much of a unstable machine, its maintenance is too much for anything but a small force. Its also an Interceptor, not a Fighter; i'd argue role is more important than size.
>>1874 >>1869 Looks like a TIE to me!
>>1869 What about the reverse? >Capital ship drops into a system with important infrastructure guarded by X-wings >Capital ship launches her TIEs >X-wings are completely outmatched >forced to either flee and preserve strength, causing the destruction of the important infrastructure they are guarding, or die with it
One advantage of the TIE model of cheap, mass-produced craft is not even about its role in combat, but its distribution among garrisons: granularity. The Empire didn't just need to mass its forces for decisive battles. In normal conditions it had to disperse them over its entire territory as a matter of maintaining control, not just to react to any threat but also to dissuade potential threats through fear and prestige. It was, of course, not possible to garrison every single system in the galaxy but a widespread presence was sought. This meant there were be massive garrisons on important systems but also microscopic garrisons in the remotest corners of the galaxy (e.g. Dosuun). Existing forces had to be split to occupy all of those garrisons. A large number of cheap craft is far easier to split than a small number of expensive ones. If, let's say, an ARC-170 is worth as much as 2 TIE Fighters in combat, then on a fleet massed for battle there's no difference between 1000 ARC-170s and 2000 TIE Fighters. But when it's time to man remote outposts on the Outer Rim, it is convenient to have the TIEs as some outposts will only need a few of them. 2 TIEs can go to separate hangars, a single ARC-170 cannot be split in two.

Pirated, of course. Yidsney can fuck right off. Don't ever let it touch your money.
That said, what do you guys think of it so far? So far it feels like it's supposed to be a space western. The whole thing about the MC taking care of baby Yoda is going over my head but the combat seems pretty good, and they're actually portraying assassin droids and Imperial walkers as the death machines they're meant to be. The main theme is also pretty great, and doesn't rely on John Williams for once.

There are always these rumors flying around and they are always huge copes. I remember one about Captain Marvel being cut from Infinity War / Endgame, which never happened, and another about ROTS retconning everything that happened in TLJ, which also never happened. It's a mix of wishful thinking and flailing attempts to save declining youtube channels, it has no bearing on reality.

People who keep whining about how it doesn't fit the EU are getting to be pretty annoying. Yes it doesn't fit SOME of the EU... mostly because large portions of the EU were made before the prequels films were released. The EU itself had contradictory storylines... and no-one cared because its Star Wars and were in it for the worldbuilding and stories, not some superconsistent tight series. The EU had great plotlines but it also had a lot of garbage. Better than the Disney materials, by far, but not great either. You can enjoy both TCW and the EU without having to pack them into 1 canon story line, because unlike the main Star Wars movie plots, they can go off on very varied tangents that can be placed as alternative universe if necessary.
>>2802 The majority of TCW's clashing with EU has fuck all to do with the prequels; thats a retarded excuse. Just because some EU stuff clearly relies on a different clone wars, doesn't suddenly excuse other totally different ones. Not that muh canon is my issue, i consider the majority of TCW mediocre or outright bad is my issue. "Alternate universes" really deserves to be for what ifs, pretty gay for stuff like this or reboots. Mind you its much better than slapping in the loads of bullshit TCW has into EU. However i will say its incredibly unlikely you'll find who dislikes TCW for canon issues only, a small issue that might have yes; but not the actual reason.
>>2802 https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=ujRvFatw2c8 >Yes it doesn't fit SOME of the EU It goes out of its way to contradict every entry into the CWMMP and multiple other titles besides. And unlike the pre-prequel EU, the contradictions are far more egregious, and there's no attempt made to reconcile them as they occur. Further, no EU title has contradicted the films that were released before it--things released between the OT and PT are still faithful to the OT. Filoni Wars on the other hand contradicts large swaths of AotC and RotS, not least of which is making Anakin an unrecognizable character. Finally, there's one major issue TCW has outside all its major continuity breaks: it's just not all that good of a TV show.
>>2804 One thing I remember people trying to justify TCW by it having it's own level of canon before Disney bought Lucasfilm. Basically the different star wars media had their own levels of canon with the movies having the highest canon level.
>>2804 >Why "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" Doesn't Fit In Legends | Part 2 1:06:54 Thanks, I think I'll just take your word for it.

High Republic Dumpsterfire Stormtrooper 02/26/2020 (Wed) 17:16:35 No.2639 [Reply] [Last]
So Disney announced this the other day. Its the identity of their "super secret" Project Luminous, which is actually called "The High Republic Era". Its nothing but a few books and comics made by the gayest bunch you ever did see and the majority are all terrible and woke writers. In essence its a crappier Old Republic knockoff that's only set 200 years before the prequels. Its basically a retelling of the Mandalorian Wars but it replaces the Mandalorians with "Space Vikings". The Vong are also supposedly going to be a part of this as are sith gods and the "Sith Empire". But the real kicker is that shortly after this moronic announcement, Bob Iger officially stepped down as CEO of Disney which has many people talking about this High Republic shit being the first sign of the fall of Disney's Star Wars and possibly Disney as a whole which is still in massive debt caused by a lot of their recent acquisitions, the most notable being 20th Century Fox (which they have since renamed 20th Century). So is this the end? Has SW finally taken its first step to truly being put out of its misery and being put to rest?

>>2744 Yeah, except they're called the Grysk now.
Ah, So this is basically Disney's pathetic take on The Old Republic era?
>>2778 Yes, but it's even worse because they only decided to set it a mere two centuries before the Phantom Menace while also including Sith and not-Vong, contradicting the film which said the Sith weren't seen in 1,000 years.
So when are we getting the first pile of crap from this era so we can roast it? >>2779 I guess you could theoretically do something with this, but you'd have to make it so whoever runs into the Sith is basically treated like Agent Mulder when he tries to tell people what happened. But they don't have enough talent to make it work. I bet this board could do a better job than whatever they put out.

Also >Takes down Vader without him being able to do shit or speak coherently <Old Canon has him lose his respirator to damage and still beat his opponent. This is worse than that kid who reprogrammed the ED-209 in Robocop 3 in less than 5 minutes. Lastly A) His cybernetics consist of metal prosthetics - no internet or other "hacking" applicable B) His respirator - essentially a normal hospital system (the inspiration for his iconic breathing) made super-compact and durable - no internet or hacking applicable C) His Helmet/Mask which enhanced his sensory abilities similar to the Stormtrooper helms. There is likely a computer system there that connects to his other parts but judging from what I've seen you can't really hack into it, since its not directly uplinked to anything. All in all, this dumb bitch shouldn't have been able to hack into anything. At least with Vader's suit-maker that guy had access to kill-switches and shit, but that didn't work out all too well either. His agony and sheer anger from being used like this should have given Vader, one of the most powerful Sith Lords, the will to crush her on the spot seeing how it let Darth Maul survive being bisected. I can only hope that they can redeem this by having a "got ya bitch" moment, where he reveals to have been playing along - and then kills her when she no longer is useful. Fuck me, even the Godzilla animated series from 1998 was smart enough to not have Randy hack into robotics that have no computer or internet parts in them unless he was directly plugged in.
>>1614 >that cave has something to disable the force Compare this idiocy to the fact that the comics of Lucas prequels explained that the Jedi built their temple on top of a Sith temple and it clouded their vision, helping Palpatine hide himself. THAT made a modicum of sense unlike "Super special cave from fuck knows where can turn off the force... which flows through all things and isn't just some energy that can be turned off forcibly.
>>2356 >This arc falls flat on its face when any Force user could best Luke, simply because he is the borne Übermensch with high Midichlorian levels Except, as demonstrated within the prequels, midichlorian levels are just arbitrary power-wells. How you use it, the skill you have and more importantly the intent, is what gives someone an upper hand.
>>2795 >Godzilla cartoon from 1998 I'm surprised people still remember that one. I remember when Randy was able to hack into a nuclear power plant. You can get rid of this if you think it's too distracting from the thread.
