>TIE Fighters were designed for use by elite Clone pilots who could push it to it's limits, with the first of them appearing at the end of the Clone War. However when the Empire decided to mass conscript rather than use expensive trained clones well they instead became flying coffins.

Problem is that no matter the skill of the pilot to make the most of that supreme maneuverability, they're STILL in a flying coffin…

I mean, I can understand skimping out on a Hyperdrive, only a hit and run fighter needs Interstellar range, and without a Hyperdrive you really don't need an Astromech to store your coordinates.

…But Shielding for a Fighter?

Even SITH Wars era Fighters had weak Deflectors, with only the Clone Wars V-19 Torrent, an EARLY war model mind you, being the only piloted fighter without shields.

For DROID fighters this make sense, you aren't out a whole lot if the Droid Brain goes down with the ship, but considering the time and resources it takes to train an Organic Pilot, you want to up their survivability if only to protect that investment.

On top of that, while this is mostly a personal gripe, WHY IN THE HELL ARE THE SOLAR PANELS SO DAMN BOXY AND TALL?!?!

Not only does it give the craft huge port and starboard silhouettes and reduce pilot visibility, BUT YOU ALSO NEED A DAMN EXTERNAL LADDER JUST TO GET IN!

They're radiators more than solar panels. They serve much the same function a the S-foils, albeit without the attached weapons like on the X-Wings.

>…But Shielding for a Fighter?

TIE Fighters are also ultra low sig, which means you won't actually detect them most times until they are right on top of you.

>Not only does it give the craft huge port and starboard silhouettes and reduce pilot visibility,

Good center of gravity when pulling G's and the pilots are surrounded by sensors. In a fight you'll need good sensors more than good eyesight.

>BUT YOU ALSO NEED A DAMN EXTERNAL LADDER JUST TO GET IN!

They are built for space and quick deployment. You can have a swarm of TIE Fighters out the hangar much faster than you could an X-Wing just by literally firing them out the Hangar.

In a perverse sort of way, the TIE Fighters would be some of the best Fighters for the Rebellion if the Rebels had carriers to spare.

Literally jump in, fire them out quickly before anyone could scramble their craft or deploy them in system from long range so they sneak up undetected the latter tactic was used by the Empire to surprise the Rebels. The Rebels would not know about the TIE Fighters in system until they were right on top of them

Low signatures mean nothing if you go up like a powder-keg from a glancing micro-meteorite strike…

How do they deploy quickly when the thing has clearance LITERALLY AS BIG AS A HOUSE?!

At the very lease they could have vertically squashed and horizontally stretched the panels…

Hmmm?

I guess I had always assumed that the sheer carnage and hellishness of the various battles in the Mandalorian Wars, as described by Bao-Dur, made him cynical about certain aspects of Jedi doctrine – as well as tainting his heart with impure emotions, and of course naturally teaching him to lead (control) others. Cynical enough that by the time he reached Rakata Prime he had no qualm manipulating the locals to get to the Star Forge – where I assume he crossed the point of no-return into full-on 'I am the Lord of All' territory.

Heck, by defying the Jedi Council he would've known (at least in the back of his mind) that they would've 'revoked' his status & lightsaber (a la The Exile) had he returned; so it's safe to say that he, at least implicitly, first abandoned Jedi teachings by going to war: thus making the descent all the more easy.


 No.1984

Wrong, the Sith Emperor was already built up in the first two games and comics, and it was always mentioned that when Revan conquered a place he actually strengthened it in the end. He was always preparing for the war


 No.2001

>>1908

In other words not wrong at all. The MMORPG makes this a key chapter in the background exposition. All it did was settle the matter that Revan was corrupted by another character instead of getting a contact high from the dark side energy in the Star Forge, and it explains how he even knew that "The True Sith" were still out there in any meaningful capacity to begin with.

“Equality is a lie. A myth to appease the masses. Simply look around and you will see the lie for what it is! There are those with power, those with the strength and will to lead. And there are those meant to follow – those incapable of anything but servitude and a meager, worthless existence.”

~Darth Bane

“Equality is a perversion of the natural order!… It binds the strong to the weak. They become anchors that drag the exceptional down to mediocrity. Individuals destined and deserving of greatness have it denied them. They suffer for the sake of keeping them even with their inferiors.”

I'm going to be honest here, the New Jedi Order is abominable. The first one by Salvatore was fine, it introduced the new concept adequately, but every book after that felt exactly the same. It's just one extremely drawn plot with a series of meaningless miniplots. it's awful. I can't go on with it, reading book after book and knowing that nothing major is going to happen yet also knowing that the Vong will eventually be defeated. This should have been a single well-written trilogy max. I mean they had so much potential, growing up I dreamed of reading this series, and yet it's the most stale and boring thing I've ever read.

Originally the series was meant to be written around 5 main novels, with everything else in between being filler like Shadows of the Empire. It goes: Vector Prime, Balance Point, Star by Star, Destiny's Way, The Unifying Force

Not sure if this holds up as a reading order though. Some of the better character driven stuff ended up in other novels. If there's a single book out of the entire series worth reading it's "Traitor".

Even so, it can be hard to get into the series nowadays because it was very much a product of its time (Empire fatigue, invincible protagonists, most stories before it being self contained).

I seem to recall some butthurt from people at Dark Horse, especially Randy Stradley, that the novel guys took full control over the whole Vong invasion thing. Lots of people were upset by the handling of the concept, the edgy nature of the Vong and killing off Chewie & Anakin Solo.

The Invasion comic series was decent. Too bad it never finished.

Nah, I'll attribute this to unreliable narrator spinning whimsy. They already tried to build a mini-franchise out of Rogue One and its characters which uses as a critical plot point that the engineer in charge of designing the Death Star's turbolaser sabotaged the station's schematics by slipping in the thermal exhaust port flaw in the in final draft for the plans. I would put more stock in something they used as lore for a major film release and its surrounding tie-ins to a filler project commissioned to fill in the wait for the first Star Wars movie under Disney ownership.

I think that what they were trying to do was replicate that "Cantina Stories" thing by bullshitting up DEEPEST LORE for every puppet milling around in view of the camera, but they got bored and moved on to something more likely to rake in normalfag bucks.

My thoughts exactly. The Expanded Universe is being memory holed the same way older Star Trek had. And cheap can't even give the full meaning of what has happened as there are no new games, books or comics being made by publishers who want to tell a story or try something new everything is being discussed in a committee to maximize profit and the creators are a cabal of SJWs. Disney probably has a final date that they know Star Wars will be dead just like with Star Trek and other western mythos which predominantly white males enjoyed.

The way it all happened so quickly makes me wonder if it was/is an ongoing conspiracy with this intent. Or is it merely cannibalism as the West falls apart?

Just rewatching the 2003 cartoon hurts, knowing that he went from a genius strategist and ultimate Jedi-killing machine to a complete disappointment.

Makes it even worse now that it is no longer canon, and the wheezing loser of the CGI Clone Wars show is the "real" Grievous. Shit, they even lowballed Dooku in that show.

I like him having four arms, though. That was a cool addition. I liked him using his legs in combat too, though. Imagine, six limbs, each a potential weapon.
