If you choose other what race would you like to see?

I chose Chiss all the way!

P.S. Forgive me if there's already been one of these! :D

Definately the Chiss out of those.

They have cool blue lasers and advanced technology. Also, you could easily make a civ out of them. Their story could be their fight againt the Empire when they came in to the Unkown Territories.

Well, there's been... I've lost the count of how many there have been.

Personally, I think they should be Ewoks, Mon Calamari, and Trandoshans.

Then For Battlegrounds II, there should be: Chiss, Yuuzhan Vong, Mandalorians, Massassi, Black Sun and someone else.

Of course that's my personal opinion, considering what Kvan will say about the Mon Cal... :D

Hey, they're Yuuzhan Vong, not Vuuzhan Vong, well that was all.

I chose the Vong, the Chiss would be cool, but we know very little about their ground forces, and consequently, the GB staff would have to make most of it up.

Killing machines, people!! Killing machines!!!

darthfergie

The Noghri would be awesome. They are great at stealth so their special unit would be a stealth assasin (kills in one hit on infantry, but very low HP ) I wonder how awesome their Jedi would be at Stealth...:D

Ewoks??? What would they be good at...being cute. They wouldn't have effective troops, navy and air...WHAT AIR all they have are GLIDERS!!!! Artillery...stick and stones. What would the Fur Fighters do????

:ewok: :ewok: :ewok: :mob: :trooper:
3 to one that is the men ratio at the very least!!! Their troops would cost 5 food apiece and you could have up to 5000 of them and the odds still wouldn't be even against the 150 stormie standing in their way!!!

Yes, I agree that they will have all that :D
Really though, I see your point that they aren't effective but in the movies they seemed to hold there own. Plus they are part of my childhood so, it really doesn't have to make a whole lot of sense on why I picked them :D

In SW the have souped up fighters (big so they can get in) and freighters that are big enough to hold their size. Otherwise they use what everone else in the Alliance uses.

I like the idea of ewoks in an expansion.

They would have various types of gliders for air

They could have battering rams for mechs
and siege weapons

They require very few resourses too build armys to make up for there weakness, they would also have a fast build rate. There would be hordes of ewoks attacking your base

They could lay mines or traps

Their special skill could be coversion of mechs and air and sea ships, It would be like them stealing the other civ's units and every ewok unit could do it but only once that would balance the game( only ground unit ewoks )

There buildings would look cool, a bunch of tree houses

I think that the ewoks would make a good expansion. I would use them.

darthfergie
08-14-2001, 12:55 AM
Ewoks would be a waist of animation time.
Now Mandalorians...THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!! The group that took out the Jedi. Special Bounty Hunter bonuses because they have NO Jedi at all. Their troopers could fly over water and forests (jet packs) TOO COOL.

Or a civ that used Clones would be awesome (mandalorians possably:fett: ) Low cost trooper to make up for no Jedi...AWESOME!!!! The ultimate anti-Jedi civ!!!!

Mitth'raw'nuruodo

Mandalorians don't exist!! They were a fill in! We all know now that Fett is not a Mandalorian.
A Clone civi would be good. But all the guys would look the same...hehehe

i don't have a problem with the ewoks. maybe not as a single civ, but probably an additional one in a campaign such as battle for endor.

btw kvan, cool avatar, but it reminds me of lucky charms cereal for some reason. don't know, instead of the leprechaun you have the imperial trooper....

Info on the MANDALORIANS!!!!

Mandalorian Crushgaunt
a specialized, armored glove created in the Mandalore System. It enhances the wearer's ability to crush objects, such as hands or other body parts, with minimal effort. ( RM )


Mandalorian Dungeon Ship
the basis for the Lictor-class ship, the Mandalorian dungeon ships were huge prisoner transport vessels which provided the most uncomfortable conditions for almost any species. This meant that the prisoners suffered the maximum discomfort before they were imprisoned on bleak, harsh worlds and left to die. ( DE1, DESB )


Mandalorian Iron
a metal that is virtually indestructible, even to a lightsaber blade. Jedi Master Arca hid Freedon Nadd's Sith artifacts in a storehouse built from Mandalorian Iron in an effort to seal it forever, but Exar Kun used the Dark Side of The Force to penetrate it. ( DLS )


Mandalorian Manacles
locking devices used to clasp a captive's wrists together, these strong cuffs are made from Mandalorian Iron and are virtually inescapable. They come in many sizes to fit all kinds of races. ( TOJ )


Mandalorian Shock Troopers
a group of warriors defeated by the Jedi Knights during the Clone Wars. ( ESB )

[sarcastically]You guys all missed THE civ for an expansion.......Tusken Raiders!

But I think the Chiss, the Yuuhzan Vong, and the Mandalorians would be good for an expansion. Their stories would coincide well with most of the civs used already.

darthfergie
08-14-2001, 01:45 AM
Tusken Raiders??? almost as bad a Ewoks!!!:ewok: or even Jawas:jawa

All they have are toops. No Navy (desert remeber), No mechs (besides Banthas), no air at all. Even Ewoks had air units:ewok:

I can't believe that we are even wasting our time talking about Ewoks as a civ. The Ewoks will be a civ as soon as Hell freezes over because it is overpopulated by flying pigs.....if you know what i mean? :D

Now, the Mandalorians wouldn't work really coz what kinda story do they have, huh? They don't. They fought the jedi and lost, but the jedi aren't a civ, so that doesn't work.

The more likely civs are the Mon Cals, Chiss, and Ving, why don't we talk about them?

It's Vong, Tie :)
We all know why I think the Mon Cals won't work...so I'll skip them....
The Chiss are too "new" and really to me they are boring...oooo blue lasers and blue skin, you think their ships are blue too? :D
The Vong, imo, could work, but like someone said before, we are going to have to wait till their story plays out before they can be in the game.

Compa_Mighty
08-14-2001, 12:17 PM
I go for, Trandoshans an Mon Cal for te x-pack. They are in more or less the same timeline, and have some relation with the other civs.

I like the Chiss, the Black Sun and the Vong for another game, which would be expanded universe only. They wouldn't be very compatible with the civs we already have.

I think that this is from one of the books but i'm not sure:

Boba Fett is a clone, and he is from a line of clones, he stole the Mandalorian Armour, he is not madalorian. The mandalorians have been extinct for a very long time. I don't think they would work.

Back on topic, I voted for the Chiss. I found it funny that someone said they are new so they wouldn't work but the Vong are ok. WHAT!?! The Chiss were created long before the Vong. Remember Thrawn?

Anyway they just seem like a cool race that are honorable and powerful (a great combination). I think they would be really fun to play. The Vong are my second choice. I also think the Vong and Chiss are perfect competition for each other.

Admiral Thrawn
08-15-2001, 03:23 PM
I would say Norghi would be the best along with Chiss for these reasons.
Norghi Would be a infantry power house.
They did have space ships.
They have really cool history.
A awsome campain could be made about them.
They are very cool and their UU could be a fast moving infantry man armed with blades that is like unaffected by lasers, but weak vs jedi. Instead of having a jedi, they should have another UU that is a Norghi with those bio nets that stick to you (When they tried to capture SkyWalker) and capture you. Those would be used like with electric settings to kill the enemy.

Then the Chiss would be awsome, they would have space ships with low attack, but awsome range and hitpoints and really fast.
A UU that is Some sort of mech. Their UT would be like *Strategies of Thrawn*



Man I love these Units... :atat: I can't wait till SWGB comes out then I can make them, along with:trooper: and :guard:

Welcome Thrawn,
actually I think their UU would be a stealth unit that kills infantry in one hit, but it would be vunerable once it was seen and has low HP.:dtrooper: :vadar: :dtrooper:

08-15-2001, 04:23 PM
Why wouldn't the Chiss have good ships? Their "clutches" sound pretty good to me, and they are some of the best pilots in the galaxy. Also they've go Soontir Fel and son. Their fortress should definately be called the Hand of Thrawn. :thrawn:

Tie Guy
08-15-2001, 08:17 PM
So which one...or two... of you is a clone? :D

Anyway, i think that a cool UU for the Nohgri would be a highjacker of sorts. He could enter enemy vessels if he gets close enough, and then he can get out when it is destroyed but he loses a lot of HP.
