Why the TIE Fighter is a good ship Stormtrooper 01/15/2020 (Wed) 18:10:12 No.1841 [Reply]
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!

>>4796 Tie series have a serious design issue of colateral vision.
>>4802 Colateral vision is for pussies, real man only look foward.
>>1842 <incapable of long range missions What for? It's not for privateers, it's for navy that has larger ships for long range missions. Thus it's unnecessary. And if it's unnecessary, it's dumped. Any non-essential hardware either takes place of something essential or adds more mass to haul around in a fight. The less, the better. <muh strength in numbers Yep. <tied by the dick to ISDs It's made for those who have carriers, yes. Well, they did. So, when it's a disadvantage? <not having a tail gunner Having wingmates. See "mass produced" and "strength in numbers". Also, good maneuverability helps.

>>4796 >which doesn't have a hyperdrive and they still call it starfighter There were TIE prototypes with missile launchers, shields and hyperdrive.
>>4796 >Did it really has 20 years? The first chronological appearance of TIEs I'm aware of is in Dawn of Defiance episode 3. >The 12th Squadron is one of the first fighter squadrons to switch over from the now-antiquated V-wing starfighters to the cutting-edge TIE fighter. Episode 4 of DoD takes place 2 years after Order 66 starts. The X-wing is finalized by 1BBY, though it is in the works by the end of DoD >The console displays a ship design with which the heroes are utterly unfamiliar; it resembles a forced marriage of a large Z-95 Headhunter and an ARC-170. If the heroes ask Seejo about the ship, he begins chattering about a Deep Scout design that Subpro and Incom are jointly developing on the Outer Moon of Prakith—until one of the other engineers reminds the chatty Duros that secret does actually mean secret.

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.

It's so fucking obvious baby Yoda will either fall to the dark side completely and utterly, or have to go back with Mando and never develop his abilities. Also >50 years old >41 BBY is Anakin's birth date

>>5398 > baby Yoda will either fall to the dark side completely and utterly, No way, it's working a lot with childless millenials, they'd never make their cute cash grab into an edgelord dark side user.
>>5416 Yeah, that's why he is going back with Mando next season. Be ready for more Luke bashing.
>>5416 If baby yoda is a female, she will be a Mary Sue, if baby yoda is a male, he will be the ultimate beta, telling people that the force is female.

What's your favorite prequel comics? For me, it's the Ki Adi Mundi ones, both Prelude to the Rebellion and Outlander.

>>5269 >Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison. I liked it except the edgy ending.
>>5271 It didn't make sense at all if you ask me. Vader valued loyalty above all else, the guy wasnt force sensitive at all, even with Frank hinting that the guy could be useful. Vader killed people for blunders, perceived or otherwise, but never for being efficient.
>>5274 Maybe it was a mercy killing? That's all I can think of. Like maybe he saw the guy would just be used as a tool for Palpatine and it was obvious he lived a painful life that only awaited more suffering. Best to have just ended it there. Not justifying the ending, just what I try to think to personally justify it.
>>5252 Whats the most expensive comic then? wanna know what to sell
>>5385 The first issue of the 1977 comic goes for about $25,000 last I checked.

>>5265 I was going to deny that, but this new evidence is just too compelling. See panel 3.
>>5326 That was from the early maquette and they ditched it when it proved too impractical to implement. Also it looks ugly as shit regardless.

>>5342 But they didn't ditch the arm-legs. Here's the Max puppet/costume without an actor inside. Clearly what they built was intended to be legs.
Open file (2.59 MB 2106x1070 dyz18v4tpv561.png)
>>5363 Yes, that was the "intent", but the "legs" are now higher on the costume than those on the maquette and with a clear frame beneath them, and the original idea was to have two guys inside the costume to make it look like legs, but that shit proved to impractical so they just treated it as regular arms, much like how they dropped the whole "red balls". It didn't live past the concept phase and even the action figure and promotional material for the film that followed for years kept them four-limbed and bipedal even in the games that followed. Its only recently with Disney that they decided to bring back that retarded two legged design and even they aren't consistent with it, always showing two limbed or four limbed Ortolans without consistency.
>>5364 What game are the Ortolans on the right from?

Goodbye Star Wars. Stormtrooper 05/04/2020 (Mon) 00:53:35 No.2959 [Reply] [Last]
It is the end of an era, the final bastion of pre-disney wars comes to an end today, and on may 4th of all days, which is appropriate i suppose. Say what you want about the Clone Wars but it was the final remnant of the old Star Wars, the bridge between the old and new, and with it's conclusion comes the conclusion of the old good ways. It was a little disappointing to be honest. The ending gave off this vibe of hopelessness and sorrow and like something good has come to an end. Which is fitting because it is true, both in their universe and in real life, so that's it, that is the end of the old Star Wars. It's gone now forever… I don't mean to sound like a dramatic soyboy faggot over a fictional universe, but yeah that is the end of pre-disney Star Wars. whether you were one of the first to see it in the theaters those 42 years ago or you grew up with the prequels It has been a wild ride and an honour anons. I know i am going to sound like a fucking cringelord for what i am about to say but i thought it would be the only proper way to sign off and say goodbye to a franchise that filled our childhoods with joy. May the force be with you, always.

>>5296 >Filoni's The Clone Wars will never not come off as the dumbest fucking thing I have seen in my life. It's basically the sparkledog of Star Wars. ftfy
>>5296 >Mortis will never not come off as the dumbest fucking thing I have seen in my life. They were used again in the Rebels cartoon along side Felony fursona.
>>5296 Didnt they used those Mortis guys in the latest EU books linking it to that Abeloth creature? It's not so hard to deal with those. They are just Force manifestations/aliens strong with the Force with delusions of divinity. The mere fact they were planet bound proves that they were not that powerful or important. Darth Nihilus was a much powerful entity.
>>5304 Yea the mortis family are easy to deal with and make salvageable since the last book has them not actually be the Force itself unlike in TCW. So there's that. Still the whole Mortis arc like most of TCW was just plain badly written. And the whole evil Ahsoka thing was just so terrible and hokey. Even Anakin's vision of his own future was like a lamer version of the one from Genndy Wars.
>>2959 So long and thanks for all the space fish and grogs.

Young Skywalker, we meet at last. I have been waiting a long time for this moment to finally see you face to face. This is the first Jedi Darth Vader has ever brought into this newly constructed Death Star. And I brought you here to I form you that I have personally requested the Death Star to be constructed. And that this is my favorite place, inside this death star. And I am so glad you made it here to see me, in my pride and joy space station, which I totally am glad is being constructed.
I'm afraid I would be so unhappy if you decided to leave me alone young Jedi. I hope you stay a while, make yourself at home. As a matter of fact, young Skywalker, I would love it if you tried to murder me slowly, right here. Please, walk up these stairs and murder me, it's what I really want.

We're gonna need to create another galactic panic to cover up what extreme measures are required to start this episode all over again before it gets out of control. The news is going to get crazy again! I can't wait to have my mind blown by this political roller coaster. Lots of people are going to go broke, hopefully even record numbers. The empires got some super extreme tormenting to get on with to teach the republic yet another lesson. Such hard work these rebels demand. Rebel scum don't stand a chance.

>>5239 Since when did any SW race have a proper language system?
>>5262 Mandalorians and Sith both received proper language systems and throughout NJO the Vong used a plethora of words.
>>5264 The sith language is pretty based. Too bad the mando language is just a bunch of gross coughing and grunting noises.
>design the DS >some cheap stupid solution >got killed 7 times because of that Lemelisk had a hard life. Also... why the fuck they left the main reactor exposed? The DS2 would be incomplete, with some outer structure exposed... but so hard to envelope the main reactor first? If you gonna spring a trap... cover any potential risk. How a guy like Palpatine, who concocted such stupid plans, manager to conquer the galaxy? My take is that 20 years doing dark side shit without restriction fucks with your mind >exposed reactor composed on explodium >lamest "legion of best troops" ever, bunch of bumbling fools >put a fleet in a hammer and anvil formation with the DS and just used the DS2 superlaser to blow some blistered dick cruisers instead of using both at full to maximum effect
