We've all heard about the most popular civs, but which one do you feel is a bit overrated ?

The Imperials. They come in with their ATAT's but i don't think that they will be that great. My second choice would be the wookies, since there berserkers are probably not as good as people might now think. Who knows, a month after this thing is out, everyone may love the naboo.

Really i think that the best...or worst...or most overrated civ depends on your style. If you like mechs then the Imps would be the best, and the gungans or Wookies the worst. If you like troops, the Wookies would be the best, and the TF the worst. If you like air or all-around, them the Rebels would be the best. Get what i'm saying?

I like that. You know you might be quoted world round for that one:D

Does have a certain ring to it, doesn't it? :D

anways, you get what i'm saying. That's why i think that the Wookies are the best, and the Imps are most overrated, coz i like troops, that's my style.

The Imps are definitely overrated. Just look at any thread that mentions any kind of attacking and you'll see at least somebody say "You think that's good?Well try to beat my 50 AT-AT's when they come in on your base". Know what I mean? Well I sure hope they make the AT-AT slow and very expensive that way if anybody has 50 AT-AT's,then they probably have no resources(and has probably mined all the resources found on the map) anymore and have no air defense and will therefore lose to only 1 measly droid starfighter. You know,kinda like in Starcraft where some guy attacks with like 20 battlecruisers or 15 ultralisks. And I bet it's a special unit like the faamba(The lady who designed it said it was basically an AT-AT with skin too).

Tie Guy

The special unit of the Imps is the Dark Trooper, not the ATAT. Everyone here is just joking about building 50 ATAT, that would be totally unpracticle, and very expensive. I don't think you'll have to worry about getting attacked by 50 ATATs. I do agree though, the Imps are way overrated.

I am going to build 50 At-Ats at one time or another. It would look awesome while storrming a base:D

Imps may be overrated, but a swarm of Stormtroopers is one of my main reasons to buy the game !
I'll go nuts!

I don't trust stormtroopers. They are SUPOSED to be crack military troops, but sometimes it looks like they're on crack.
Obi-One "could sand people make such precise and accurate blaster shots... No this was the work of Imperial Stormtroopers."

Sorry to get a little off topic but.....

Anyone ever wonder why Imperial Troops have such horrible accuracy sometimes, and other times they don't. I mean, they take out an entire Corvette's troops with only like 3 losses, but they can't hit 3 people and 2 droids running away from Bespin for the life of them. I thought these were the most elite infantry units in the Empire, but they couldn't hit the broad side of a Star Destroyer at point blank, if you asked them to. :D

Back on topic....

I'm buying the game co it's gonna be alot of fun and its Star Wars. Plus, i love rts's and AOK. I'm not too worried about the civs, this game is gonna rock no matter who you play.

Yeah, those are my reasons! :D

The Gungans. The fact that they made it into the game at all means that SOMEBODY rated them too highly;)

Just kidding... I can't wait to blow up their primitive outposts in the name of the Empire!

Paragon_Leon

...only to find out that they have an army of zeppelin-like whale-planes that bombard your mechs to smithereens..

i actually believe most people will UNDERestimate the Gungans. And the other way around with the Imps, because everyone has Hoth in mind with them.

Yes they will under-estimate Gungans for a simple reason. Jar Jar.
Need I say more.:D

i think the gungans will actually be pretty good. their fambaa is going to be really helpful.

yeah, the Gungans aren't clumsy like Jar Jar there warriors, but they don't have blaster weapons so what are they gonna do about that? I think they all throw those energy balls at a distance and at close range they use there spears and other weapons.

Tie Guy
08-13-2001, 04:23 PM
Hmm, i wonder if they switch weapons at different ranges, that would be an interesting feature. Like having a "Champion Arbalest."

Paragon_Leon
08-13-2001, 04:25 PM
my guess is they'll work more like skirmishers from AOM; only effective by throwing spears (energy balls) from a distance.
there could be some Gungans seen with some kind of spear during the battle for Naboo though.. sounds like Pikeman to me..

Sure wookies rip peoples arms off when they lost but A) they live in trees like the Ewoks and B) They are furry like the Ewoks
:P but really they are a mech weak race.

20 votes!!!! THAT'S Impossible!!! :eek:

Tie Guy
08-13-2001, 08:36 PM
No, its not impossible, it just means that 20 people come here often enough to vote on a poll. Do we really have that many regulars?

Dont forget gungan troops carry those small sheilds. GUNGANS ARE OBSESSED WITH SHEILDS

Tie Guy
08-13-2001, 10:33 PM
WEll, you know what they say, "If you can't attack, hide."

Well, seomone might have said it. :D

Anyway, get what i mean. They need those things coz they have crappy weapons. They don't stand a chance without good defense or without hiding under a shield.

Wanna know why the Stormtroopers couldn't hit our heroes?
DEAUS EX MACHINA

And my vote would be for the Imps.

The real reason is that it is a movie, and the heroes can't die by stormtrooper fire.

Gosh, don't you guys have any sense of fantasy! The heroes can't die by mear smucks! It's like in anime, only the most powerful villain can kill the hero :)
