The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.

We are making a standalone game using CE3. We will not make money. We are keeping within copyright limits. We are promoting Star Wars. End of.

Hello fans of Star Wars: BattleCry,

As you know, Lucasfilm and Lucasarts have recently been acquired by Disney.

While, hopefully, this won't affect us, I'd just like to get some stuff clear:

a) We are not referencing character names
b) We are not referencing force powers used in the films
c) We are not making a single cent from production of the game
d) We are promoting the star wars franchise and keeping its fans happy

If any representative from Disney wants to take us down then they will be taking away our freedom to be creative! We are perfectly entitled to do what we are doing considering we will be making nothing at all from this mod.

Thank you,

rocknroll237

No seriously, there's no reason for Disney to claim the death of this promising project! It's actually a great publicity for Star Wars (especially for Episode VII)... Anyway, it's not the fault of the fans if Lucasarts has disappointed us the past 2 years with annoying titles (e.g. Star Wars Kinect, TFU2, TOR,...)

Maybe Disney will get LA to finally make a proper TFU3 (like TFU1) and BF3!

I agree, niether of the team members are gaining any kind of profit. We just want to do what lucas arts refuses to.

I signed the petition to save MERP. I'd encourage everyone to do the same.

I think there's no problems for this:
Using character names
Using force powers used in the films
And movie bits or OST
Since it is a non commercial project ;) .
