why are the missions not displayed on the new graph. My point was they still happen on the dates stated in the above graph. Their is no reason for then to not be?

the missions weren't displayed because of the scale of the graph. chee's condensing made it to small to fit legible words in the span it was condensed into.

there is no reason that they cant be concurrent to the show and i hope leeland chee makes it concurrent to the show but we truly dont know. only he knows and im going off of this:

"All of these episodes take place early on during the Clone Wars, mere months following the Battle of Geonosis seen in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. Many of the dates and events on previously existing EU Clone Wars timelines have been condensed into this period before the events of “Cat and Mouse.” (chee)

RC my very well be condensed. one major confliction is the mission to devron. Delta Squad's mission to devron in TCW takes place right around the same time as they're mission to the Prosecutor. so either chee has to move Devon back to accommodate RC (which seeing tcw is T canon and RC is C canon he probably wont) or he has to condense RC with everything else

Okay. So you are assuming he means to condense the whole thing. Thats what I thought and that is what I have been saying, I assume you are wrong and reading too much in to what he said. I believe his statement means anything that directly conflicts will be condensed. (Ex. Any battles in which Anakin is a Padawan) It would make absolutely NO sense to condense anything that does not conflict. The mission to deveron could have been 350 days in to the war or 400 days in to the war or 389 days. Their is no reason that should even conflict with the Prosecutor mission. His statement does state that MANY events will be condensed. that does not mean ALL events.

This is not meant as an arguement point but I think you are making an assumption based on a worst case scenario that I am confident will not happen. I think we can agree on that

I have become less surprised with their choices recently. Especially after they made Bariss Ofee a corrupted Jedi who bombs the temple, tries to frame Ahsoka and kills a defenseless woman in prison but Chee is not Lucas studios and he has a very specific job to do. Make new material fit with old material with as few retcons as possible. Unfortunately The studio decided the series would take place over several years instead of their original several month timelime. Since Anakin is a knight during the whole show that means the natural conclusion must be Anakin is knighted early in the war. The studio show cases this passing of years many times in the later seasons such as Ahsoka having a older appearance along with the cadets on Mandalore now being adults in season five. The studio is at fault for that not Chee. If he moves The prosecutor mission all the way to 22BBY he needs to be FIRED because RC currently does not need any retcon because nothing conflicts.

also, in theory they could still give TCW its original projected span. the only changes i noticed to ahsoka is that she matured a bit and stopped looking like a slutty 12 year old. as for the clones, growth acceleration is a viable excuse. they never specifed how long it takes for clones to mature taun we just said "it will take more time to grow them" and the cadets in that episode were already in their adolescence.

if they were to do that it would save some canon material from the proverbial gilotine

I don't think that it's original projected span is enough for 5 seasons. But I agree that they should give more time for other sources. What we can do is move the entire show away from 22 BBY. That way we got about 2 more months for EU.

six or seven months should do. it should definetly span less than a year

I just hope that when we have enough information we can come up with a timeline that put all unrectonned material in it.

as ive stated before the only way to un-reticon the reticonned is to give TCW an alternate timeline. ozzy and i discussed this yesterday evening over skype. however its impractical

Description

after much heated debate over the placement of republic commando on the graph i drew up, it has come to my attention that perhaps my previous graph did not do as well of a job that i though representing where certain events were placed. of course ozzy threw the word propaganda around (which all of you know by now makes me irate especially when im trying to be as unbiased as possible) so your going to have to scroll back a bit to find the graphs if you havent already seen them.

Because Leeland Chee condenses a large chunk of the war into a period of "mere months" it was difficult to represent the events from the previously established timeline on the graph, for, the area was so tiny at the scale that i drew the graph at.

so here is a close up graph displaying only the events of republic commando from the old timeline to the new one along with explanations why the sources i was using suggested that i place the events of the game where i did.
