Welcome to /sw/ Stormtrooper 09/30/2019 (Mon) 03:13:34 No.1 [Reply] [Last]
The board for discussing all things Star Wars!

This thread serves as a simple introduction.

Tips:

• 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.

>>4972 Not only Vaapad, he was also using the shatterpoint ability. He figured that Anakin was the shatterpoint of Palpatine (which he figured that was the shatterpoint of the "Dark Side itself"), the guy wouldn't make a move to defend himself... but he forgot to look for the shatterpoint of Anakin himself, so... he got his hand chopped.

Does anyone have that video where the narrator recites the sith code over various clips of sith doing what they're best at? Or can you atleast tell me where to find it? It looked like it was part of a longer video, perhaps a fan film I don't know about but I never found out what it's called.
>>4655 Nevermind, found it. The uploader on jewtube is called DuduFilm. I already had him but somehow managed to look at every single video except the one I was actually looking for.

>DS thread So, lets do some infinities here... What would have happened if the Emperor and Vader died but the DS didn't blow up, the fleet didn't scattered. The rebels failed to disable the shield generator. Luke would be able to escape the DS? The rebels would be able to rebuild their fleet in time to take advantage of the chaos caused by the emperor's death? The Empire would devolve in civil war just like it did in the original scenario? Who would be the one capable being Emperor? Also have a Coruscant guard doing a power stance with some explosions in the background.
>>2523 As a symbol or flagship, absolutely. As a practical weapon of any kind, absolutely not.
>>4940 Well, it was a good fleet buster. The conventional weaponry was enough to reduce an opposing fleet to molten slag. >the exhaust port You needed a magical space knight in training to do the shot, plus Solo removing Vader from the board that is it was the fucking universal field doing the stunt >30 rebel fighters The guys in charge of DS were retards. They had TIEs to spare, they should simple drown the rebels in TIE fire. And the turbolasers also got some, being sluggish as they were
a major reason was deterrence. if opposing factions know you have a WMD, they're far less likely to revolt. of course, they had to demonstrate its powers at least once, otherwise it would be dismissed as a hoax or propaganda. as for Alderaan, that place was thinly populated, having a global population only in the millions, and was an absolute hotbed of Rebel support. it was unfortunate that they had to waste such good real estate in the process, but I can see their reasoning. of course, many sentients joined the Rebel cause in direct response, but that was a miscalculation on their part. keep in mind also, as we saw during the Battle of Endor, the Death Star didn't have to use all-out destructive power. it's capable of firing much more frequent underpowered shots, which are ideal for taking out capital ships. in general, the Empire was top-heavy, and followed the philosophy of bigger = better. if nothing else, building a space-station/superweapon was in character for them.

Do you think they will ever do anything with Swars ever again once this Yidsney shitstreak dies out? If they make another trilogy will it be a sequel to Yidsney trilogy? Will Geogre buy it back?

>>4904 Because they were making very expensive movies, only made more expansive with re-shoots, that didn't make the money they had planned to make. But they can still leech off the older parts of the franchise and newer material that doesn't cost nearly as much. Yes, I know that the SW home releases have always used different cover art but these new ones seem especially bland and lazy.
>>4911 you can't make a non-expensive star wars film
>>4912 A film? No. A series or a game? Sure. At least those could be less expensive than a movie.

Since this board is dead Anything goes in this thread. As a starting topic, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Even if they were controlled opposition, were they in the right? How would things have gone if, somehow, the CIS were allowed to become independent?

>>3873 of course, the Galaxy is a messy place, and there's no need for the story to end. however, we can do that without plowing a freight train of spiky rape into the story and setting. the OT, as seen in theaters in the 70s and 80s, is the pinnacle of Star Wars. while much can be added to this, the central narrative must not be subverted. if the Yuuzhan Vong invasion happens, that gives the OT a bad ending. you see, if the Empire had won, they'd be well equipped to fight off the Vong. Imperial Star Destroyers, AT vehicles, and legions of troopers would give them serious trouble, and a working Death Star or two would annihilate their worldships. the only way the Vong could cause so much death and destruction is if the Galaxy is seriously weakened and divided by a successful Rebellion decapitating the Empire's top leadership (ie Endor). of course, no one knew this would happen, but the fact remains, if the Vong invade, the Galaxy would be much better off under an Imperial victory. that does indeed subvert the OT, which I cannot accept. there's other problems too, such as the fact that the Yuuzhan Vong are immune to the Force, yet they use biotech, and the Force flows through all living things. and there's a thematic clash -- the Vong are essentially the Hostile Alien Invasion trope, yet the Galaxy is full of alien species, so they come from another galaxy. it just doesn't fit, they belong in WH40K as I said. the only ways I'd accept the Yuuzhan Vong is if 1. they were nerfed and turned into a dangerous species somewhere on the Outer Rim, or 2. their invasion happened centuries or millennia BBY. you could even combine these, by having the invasion happen long ago, with a surviving remnant on some distant planet(s).
Are there any fans who are pro-Jedi (or at least prefer them over the Sith) but pro-Empire, or pro-Sith but pro-Rebellion (probably the rarest)? If so, where?
