Infinity Cup 6 is now complete! Congratulations to /fascist/ who join the ranks of champions as they defeated /bane/ 2-1 in the Final! In an unprecedented turn of events, the Golden Boot will be shared by not 2, but 3 players: Alfred Legosen (/lego/), Ammit (/monster/), and Cuckquean-tan (/cuckquean/). Each player scored 6 goals officially through the Cup, fitting, giving it was the 6th edition. Thank you to every anon who chipped in throughout the Cup, and thank you especially to all the anons who took the time to tune in. We'll see you for ICUP 7!

Hello /sw/, I arrive at your humble board to officially announce the GCUP! The GCUP will be an exhibition tournament between boards of the webring that represent nations of the world, and will be contested under usual ICUP rules. In addition, we'll also be hosting friendlies for non-national boards/teams as part of the festivites. Friendlies can be played under normal rules, or, if you choose, under alternate (meme) rulesets that will be decided closer to the Cup's kickoff. If you would like to participate, head on over to the pinned thread at our board on Cafe. The event is set to begin February 13th, 2021. Look forward to having you there!

So how much do things suck today troopers?

>>3778 >>3779 I think they were also in EaW, but I haven't played it in a while.
>>3787 Sadly stormtroopers are fucked by the highest source, the movies themselves. Movie stormtroopers are just a step from being bumbling fools. If they were at least half of the ones described in the EU...
>>3800 What? The ones on the Tantive and Tatooine (except Mos Eisley) were competent, as well as some on the Death Star. And the ones on Hoth were destructive as fuck. The ones on Endor were a joke though.
>>3800 Going to echo >>3802 on this one - Stormtroopers weren't portrayed as incompetent until Endor. They completely wrecked the security team onboard the Tantive IV and annihilated the Rebels on Hoth. Their famed inability to aim comes from so-called "fans" not paying attention during ANH - everyone seems to have missed Tarkin's line establishing that the Stormtroopers were missing on purpose in order to allow the Falcon to escape the Death Star.
>>3805 Already in Bespin they were incompetent. They allowed the rebels to escape. There wasn't an order to allow them to escape like the DS. Vader demanded the prisoners to be sent to Executor, Calrissian betrayed him and the stormtroopers couldn't stop 3 people from escaping. Vader had to have people to deactivate the Falcon hyperdrive just in case to have any chance of recapturing then >Endor Endor alone would be the only example needed. It was a critical target, the very shield generator that protected the DS were the Emperor himself was stationed. They had the superior numbers and a defensive position. There was no way they could that disaster to happen. Even more "an entire legion of my best troops" as Palpatine had claimed.

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.

>>2813 >This is why you don't see present-day slugthrowers being used, but much more advanced slugthrowers with higher ammo capacities such as the flechette rifle have been conceptualized, so this isn't by itself enough to explain the scarcity of slugthrowers. I'll admit to not knowing a whole ton on this topic, but my best assumption would be storage and cost. From what I understand, flechettes are generally larger than bullets, and obviously are much larger than blaster packs. Because of that, I would assume that you would have to carry pounds and pounds of flechettes to get anywhere near the amount of shots provided by a single blaster pack. In addition to them taking up much more space, I would assume that producing 100 flechettes would be more expensive than 1 blaster pack, for what would end up accomplishing the same goal in all but the most specific of scenarios. That's not to say that flechettes or slugthrowers in general wouldn't have their uses, they definitely do, but the general idea would be why pay more to produce and store something that's going to do the same thing as a much cheaper alternative. And even in the case if Jedi-hunting, it could be argued that it would still be less expensive to arm 100 men with blasters and have them take their chances for what would cost much less than 100 men with slugthrowers. And when you get to thinking past an individual scale, and on larger scales like that, you get higher rates of success with larger groups with slightly inferior weaponry than with much smaller groups armed with slightly superior weapony.
>>2822 >The Jedi could just use the Force to stop the bullets. Sure, he can, but if you live your whole life training to deflect blaster bolts, and then, while you're in the middle of deflecting blaster bolts from a couple of guys, another guy comes and shoots a slugthrower at you, your first reaction is going to be to try to block it like a blaster.
Why nobody ever lasgun type weapons? Blasters are so slow in comparison and even liable to be deflected. Lasgun types are just a crack in the air and hit the target, there is even less space to shots going random like those stormtrooper blaster rolled. The only laser we see in action was the DS superlaser, all the rest are plasma guns.
