Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
Correction, it didn't LOOK choreographed :P
Its also noteworthy that this film was limited in the sense that it was forced to catch people "up to speed", for both old and new Star Wars fans, and in that context I feel it was even more well done.
I have a lot of questions though, which I'm afraid is the kind of question I will have to wait until next movie. :/
That said, I am looking into some new books which may clear up stuff :P
Also, while they may have thrown out the Expanded Universe as canon, there are a few nods to that as well.
In any case, yes JJ did REALLY well. I cannot imagine anyone who could do it better.
As for plot holes, I think plot armor is closer to the truth xD
I thought the NA premiere was Tuesday. Maybe that was just the Hollywood premiere or something.
Yeah, I had really hoped I would get the chance to test that part of our RP out in our invasion :(
Want to know something funny? They have always been there... T_T
It should be noted that most of the rules have simply been adapted to reflect some changes that, in some way or another, have already been in effect or considered in effect.
Unless anyone have any input, these rewritten rules will be copied into our main Rules and Guideline article.
Haha, when giving us all positive karma I accidentally gave Milos negative. Old habits die hard xD
Also, next year we can both be unemployed! :D
Omg! A Moddb blog from Jannes!
Says the guy playing white.
- We have roughly the same numbers Per Faction that we have had for the last few years. Its just the number of roleplayer controlled factions that have gone down. Most factions almost always had 1-2, 2-4 "players". That said, I don't disagree that there is a balance issue that should be fixed, but lets not talk doom and gloom over something that have always been a thing.
- Option A; AK already brought up a good point here, even if it could be made to account for for its own issues, its still a patchwork rule. It ignores the problem rather than fixing it.
- Option B; Is exactly option A fixing the issues, yet still just pathwork. Who decides when a faction is entitled to this bonus command? The GMs? They are the last to know when a faction is down a member, or two, since people usually doesn't announce that they won't be coming back, is taking a break or have RL stuff to resolve. And if we put a one week, or even a three day, inactivity timer on it, it still wouldn't work. If someones invades like the Federation did, even with the 3 strike rule, the battles would be over by the time someone gets permission to command more than one fleet.
I would propose an implementation that allows for a faction to command multiple fleets (Still a maximum of two fleets/separate groups, under special circumstances and with GM permission perhaps three) WITHIN its own borders, as in commanding defensively. This allows an undermanned faction, which is IC powerful enough to do so, to defend itself in case of multiple incursions. This being defensively only, also prevents this rule from being exploited and used offensively. An example of exploitation could be the invasion of, say, the Mandalorians with the entire Federation or Imperial armada. Or any neutral sector for that matter could be massively exploited.
Also there would be need of an underlying addendum that a faction player is not allowed to command two separate groups within the same sector/system, otherwise the implementation would be vulnerable to the same exploitation as if it could be used offensively and outside the borders of the faction.
It should also be noted that implementing my suggestion would barely mess with other pre-existing rules and require few adjustments. My entire suggestion could actually be implemented by altering a single rule, at most two.
There's your solution Brandon, which I would have told you yesterday had you not decided to be an *******.
Supreme Commander Malan Drayson, Galactic Federation of Free People.
Although I think you have way too much time on your hands mate xD
*Federation core fleet set a course for Allenteen*

Its true. Haha
OOC: Sigh.. It would have been so much more fun if you had come to me, but fine. You bore :P
On the moon's horizon a massive entity seems to almost raise itself out from the moon's crust, as the Viscount Dreadnought comes into the Imperials field of view. It seems to have a belt around it, as Ten Nebula Star Destroyers form a ring circumventing the Dreadnought, from port, to top, to starboard and to bottom. On each flank is Ten Scythe Battlecruisers, making it a total of Twenty vessels, along with Seventeen Corona frigates also divided between the flank and Ten Nexus Corvettes evenly distributed among the ships.
Behind the Federation Core fleet comes three Endurance Carriers, the entire fleet have emptied all bays of available Starfighters and bombers, already flying in formation in between the ships.
Supreme Commander Drayson adresses his commanders and com officers; "Open fire immediately once we enter weapons range. Have the Scythes engage their Ardents and Vigils along with the Coronas. Have the starfighters only act defensively in their screening, they are to cover the bigger ships but are not to directly engage those corvettes.
Corvettes are to stay in cover behind the bigger ships and add to the screening.Have the Nebulas deal with the enemy Star Destroyers, that Super Star Destroyer is our job gentlemen. Now get too it!" Drayson orders.
As the rest of the fleet enters weapons range, two of the carriers stay behind the Viscount while the last one stays back and activate gravity wells.
A crossfire patrol scans the Imperial force along with a visual account to confirm and then disappears behind the moon, letting another group take up the patrol.
OOC: Instead of a Strike for Pain, I hope you guys won't mind I add something to my move. This is a good ol' standoff anyway. :P
Looks fine to me. Good to have to back!
The Federation force holds position.
A single Crossfire is detected by the Imperials, heading outside the system.
The Federation force holds position and now begins jamming communications.
If people had 999 crystals in their lightsaber is would stop being a lightsaber, its physical proportions would be unmanageable. And even if you say they are much smaller to account of that, people still do not gain ANYTHING would doing so.
How is imposing a maximum by definition... optional?
OOC: I warned you. Lol
That said, maybe I should have advised you to take a more stealthy approach :p
Why do we care whether it has 1,2 or 3 Crystals or what color they are? More doesn't mean better. Even if it did, there is obvious physical limits to consider. You can't wield a lightsaber if its the size of a Huttling.
Imposing a maximum on something so incredibly insignificant seems ludicrous. Not to mention things reaching a whole new level of micromanagement.
And mind you this is coming from me, perhaps the greatest control freak this RP have ever seen xD
I was a VICE ADMIRAL. Then I was granted a promotion to Admiral. Then I decided that wasn't enough for my ego, so now I'm Supreme Commander. Like Revan was :P
