I like sabers a lot better because I think they are more powerful than guns. :saberb:

I didn't forget that, but how does that disagree with that quote?

"A true Jedi needs no other weapon" but all the so called true jedi were wiped out, so what does that say ?

it says they were wiped out. By Vader, not guns, as kit fisto already stated.(sure, I'll give you the fact that many jedi where killed on Geonosis, but it's just a quote that went along with my vote)

actualy if the jedi used guns on Geonosis then they would all be dead:rhett:

Something I dont get.Why do they say that Jedi are Demi-Gods or something.I mean,send in 10 or 20 soldiers that can hit a target 20 yards away,and dead the jedi are.Even a Jedi couldnt block 10 or 20 blaster shots.

I would hardly call the Geonosis battle indicative of the superiority of guns. If anything, it proves lightsabers are better. Imagine if those jedi had been armed with anything but lightsabers...they'd all be dead. They were outnumbered by around 30 or so to one, and yet they managed to hold their own for quite a while.

That leads me to my other point,what's with the small guns?Just fire a few mortars into the center of the Jedi,and poof,they are all gone.

HIDE YOUR KIDS!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, the Lightsaber is an elegant weapon, and only Jedi trained in the force could wield one properly(or so I've been told:p). Any ol' person can handle a blaster. That's what makes the lightsaber special.

The Jedi would jump out of the way of the mortor and kill the other guy :rhett:

I think Tyrion was asking about mortars/other explosives as compared to blasters. I'm guessing blasters are cheaper, and thus better suited to units which are disposable, so to speak, like battle droids. Also, explosives would most likely destroy more droids than jedi, since the jedi weren't in a cohesive group till Tyrannus ordered the ceasefire.

actualy you would only have to get used to the handle being the only weight

you should be laughing, cause I thought it was funny. :p


I hope you didn't take any offense to it.

shall I buy another round?

:cheers:

NEways, Kit fisto, I think that if you had a lightsaber, and wasn't a jedi, I think you would hurt yourself, many many times, before you mastered it. (as I am sure a lot of jedi do,too)

Sure....but make it alchoholic...:D

I tried fighting with my plastic lightsaber with no plastic tube.....Let's just say I would die before the other jedi's first swing.....

I think a non-jedi could learn to wield a lightsaber, but it would be suicide. the only reason a Jedi can effectively engage in a fight with blaster armed opponents is that tehy can block blaster bolts. Without this, tehy would be shot before they got into range to use their sabre.

I could deflect blaster shots if I would stop hitting myself

damn I did it again

I think it boils down to volume of fire, accuracy of fire and courage odf the person firing

Imagine this: It's a very well-trained blaster wielding guy against a saber-wielding Padawan. The guy would shoot his blaster at the Jedi, BUT he would deflect one of the first shots back at the shooter so he gets it early on before it gets to hot for the Jedi...

Another story is numbers, with enough blasterdudes, you COULD kill a saberwielder of course. Or use a rocket launcher on him, that usually does the trick.

they would just push the rocket or gernade back at them then the other person would die that is why you never see that

Well, I'm sure you all recall Jango, who was quite skilled with the guns. Now his head isn't quite attached to his body. So tragic.

Methinks that if a blaster-user can maintain distance between a saber user and himself, he has the advantage or at least the fight is a draw (like on Kamino). To maintain distance reliably, one would need to do as Jango did and have a jetpack or something to make him go faster than the Jedi or in an upward direction away from the Jedi.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on where you're coming from ;) ), when Jango's technology failed, that is when the Jedi had the advantage, and Jango lost his head (or his head lost it's body, depending on your point-of-view. ;) :D
