>they can't pierce the walls of the main reactor if there are no walls
>>5213 in addition to what I mentioned back then, the Vong are basically the alien invasion trope. yet it's already a galaxy full of aliens, so they come from another galaxy, and it's a stretch. I think they could work if either 1. they're massively nerfed, and are just another species causing a bit of trouble, or 2. the events are placed in the distant past of the galaxy. that way, they wouldn't shatter the universe right after the OT. >>5258 that's not the case, I have valid reasons for being anti-Vong. they feel like the creation of a WH40k fan who hates Star Wars. hope you don't mind me upping an old thread btw
>>5887 >old thread Everything is old here. We are basically w40k techpriests combing over old tech. With the death of EU we are forced to discuss old content over and over and over. I simply refuse to discuss Disney Star Wars.

>>5901 I don't find it fun at all, actually it's depressing and sometimes downright infuriating.

How lightsaber combat SHOULD work. Stormtrooper 10/15/2021 (Fri) 07:16:21 No.5629 [Reply]
In the films and video games, lightsaber users typically default to something like a plow/longpoint/seigan. I don't think these are the worst possible stance, but are really focused on things a lightsaber doesn't really need (lightsabers need relatively little speed/force to do serious damage) and leaves a lot of the body open to blasters. I think something like saber's outside half-hanging guard would actually be the default for anyone who expects to fight blasters instead of other sabers (basically everyone post-Russan). It lets the user cover a very large portion of their body with ease just by shoulder movements (only very bottom of the feet aren't protected here, and those are a pretty poor blaster target as is). It allows advancing quickly with relatively little loss in coverage and for someone like Kyle Katarn, it allows quickly drawing a blaster and shooting people who are overly focused on your saber. How do you think saber combat ought to do differently than it's normally depicted?

>>5663 Why does Yoda use a short saber then?
>>5713 Proper control, precision, the blade is proportional to his size. How a midget would effectively use what amounts to a lance? Even with a lightsaber proportional to his size he needed to hop around like a frantic frog to face human sized foes. It isn't a question of mere weight there.
>>5714 Lance doesn't really depend on your height if it's in a lance rest. Long spear actually works pretty fine on a short individual.
I disagree with some of his points but I think overall it's pretty sound: https://yewtu.be/watch?v=s8cwM3-uowQ
>>5629 In a real fight, yeah you would use a lightsaber different then you used a normal sword. But that shit looks gay so they went with something that's visually appealing to normalfags.

What the fuck is wrong with his face, why does he look so bad compared to his appearance from 3D Clone Wars?
Is Cad Bane the one thing about TCW virtualy everyone, no matter which continuity and era of content they prefer overall, agree on liking?
>>5876 Yeah, it looks like shit. >>5877 >no matter which continuity and era of content they prefer overall Yes and no, not everyone watched TCW.
>even the fucking dead man and his clothes are perfectly smooth and clean What does Disney have against weathering props? Everything in Book of Bobba Fett is brand new.

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?

>>5798 There is a channel that talks about lightsaber combat that you might find useful, but unfortunately it's hard to find because of search engines being dog shit and normalfags spewing dog shit videos. I'm sure if you look at, for instance, the video by that Captain Fordo, you'll find it in the recommended section if you get lucky. As an aside, I really wish youtube or one of the invidious instances would implement a way to block channels that I will never fucking watch.
>>5800 *that Clone Wars video by Captain Fordo
>>5800 I'll check it out then, thanks, m8. And I agree with that sentiment about Youtube. Seems like even if you tell them not to show specific content, it'll be put in the related video area anyway.

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?

>>5779 Wow, this video game trailer has made me excited to play this video game. It really convinces me that the gameplay of this video game will be fun, and it tells me a lot about what playing it will be like.
>>5781 The same faggots watching from their private islands demanding everyone take muun poison while constantly turning everything to shit for no fucking reason.
>>5779 Wow they managed to completely avoid what kind of game it's going to be or even what platforms it's going to be on, almost like they don't even know yet or something. This shit could be a fucking gay dating sim on iphones for all we know.
>>5788 Quantic Dream only make walking simulators with different endings and a good dose of pozz.
>>5788 Given the focus on the drumming, I am forced to assume it is actually going to be a rhythm game.

I fucking love NABOO Stormtrooper 03/25/2021 (Thu) 10:47:20 No.4283 [Reply]
I love it so much in fact that I had to buy an old Xbox to play the shitty Obi wan game, and now I've finally managed to get pic related to work on Win10 and it's pretty entertaining and comfy. What are some good Naboo content, bros?

>>5717 W10 is spyware. They stole one of my armor designs and reworked it into the Halo Infinite MK VII armor.
>>4404 >galactic battlegrounds Most EAW mods like Fall of the republic and Republic at war just copy pasted most of the unit dialog from it. The ships use voice lines from the Republic Air cruiser unit. Corey needs to get rid of that faggot who voiced the rebel star destroyer carrier. Actual meme cringe voice acting.

He bitches a lot about Dark Forces II, the level that I disliked the most was the first two levels, but the rest were fine, as far as I can remember. LucasArts Dark forces series was a first for everything, 2D in the first game and later 3D on the second, its a shame that they didn't push the Jedi and Sith engine more. Comparing DFII against Jedi Outcast is just not fair. DFII was released 2 years after DFI and JO was released 4 years after MS by Raven Software, the devs had years of FPS under their belt. Playing thru the series I didn't have much trouble going thru DFI since it was a Doom game, the jump to DFII in 3D wasn't that rough, since I already played that game I went with Hard and let me tell you is punishing, you need to find the secrets to get extra ammo/shields/items to push all the level The force protection is broken thought.. The jump to Jedi Outcast felt weird, the whole movement felt floaty and aiming was awkward, I needed more time to get used to everything, specially the force powers. In Jedi Academy everything felt just right, the best of the series. All in all it was a great ride and all the games should be played. The guy is an idiot for wanting more Kyle Katarn, if Disney adds him to the nuCanon or make a Jedi Academy II, they would ruin him and the series. There is 30 years of star wars content, he should read/play that instead.
Yeah pretty hypocrit but still funny to watch.
