I think the Jedi are gonna be exellent but they have a counter to them, so they shouldn't be a problem.
BTW fergie, it's "Jedi" not "Jedis" ;)

Hmm, they won't be the ultimate weapon, but they will be good. I chose the former choice since there wasn't anything in between

If used properly they will be the best unit in the game. By properly i mean not running them into 15 at-at's but sneaking into an enemy base and converting the barracks and pumpin out units:D

Some people build walls though... then how are you supposed to get in? ;)

Jedi are a good melee unit, meaning that they're not exactly 'on fire' from a distance. what's more, some units will slaughter them..

A good squad of ranged stormies, could take care of them- at a range that is ;)

WALLS? Nobody builds walls because A) The enemy just goes around them or blasts through them and B) In AOE2 id rather have an extra castle or two than some cheap walls. Walls are only good for building strike bases. In AOE2 they did make it as easy to build walls as possible but it is still a hassel because you still have to build gates and the terrain etc.

Well... they would keep the jedi out

Stormies would kill them but at least have 3+ in a group just in case stormies are present. Don't forget to avoid mechs like the plague:)

Have you seen the movies? A group of like 15 stormies and a guard tower a something else is firing on him constantly, but he doens't die, he just takes out all the troops and leaves.

If you don't think he is the Ultimate Warrior then why are you using them especially in your created scenario...Don't answer that... the cloack and dagger stuff right...

:jawa :jawa jawa commandos!!! :jawa :jawa

:trooper: --somebody needs to color the stormies face gray and call him a dark trooper. DAVID where are you...:thrawn:

Too bad, i'm answering it. :D

I'm using them coz it would be really cool to hunt down gingans with sith. Also, they are the Ultimate Weapon for killing troops, but they probably won't damage mech a lot, so they can't be the ultimate unit.

Why are you saying they wouldn't damage mechs? You'll change your mind after you see Ep 2. :D In fact, I'd use them to try and take out the larger stuff. If they can get on to the mech they can jab their saber into it's "brain"

Tie Guy

Well, if they can doo that then they really would be the ultimate unit, coz nothing but bounty hunters could even come close to stopping them. If you don't have bounty hunters, then you would be stuck if your opponent has jedi like that.

Not necessarily, even Jedi can't block shots coming from all directions. If you had some troopers on more than one side of the Jedi he could be easily taken down.

Yup, that they are. They should be too. You don't mess with Jedi! ;)

For some reason I think the game designers are going to try to prevent any one unit from dominating the game. I dunno.....I'm kinda hoping for a balanced game ;)

They most definately are trying to balance it. That's why they have bounty hunters.

Which makes me wonder, what is the counter to the ATAt, besides the speeder? From what people are saying and thinking it seems like it will dominate the game, or at least, try to.

Yes, it definately needs to be balanced, but in a different way then AoK. In AoK all the units were the same and while it was very balanced it was boring. Hopefully in GB it will be Balanced and unique! :D

Very unique thanks to wonderful animations. Have you seen the Sith yet??? His aniimations were AWESOME!!!! He makes some awesome swips and takes down a guy then turns around dices another guy *great light effects* and runs straight to another trooper and slices him to 15 littl epieces on the ground!!! It was AWESOME!!!:dtrooper: :dtrooper: :dtrooper:
