Mechs and Jedi's

09-16-2001, 04:17 PM
I'd have to say the sea units, as they are a totally un-seen aspect of Star Wars.
But other then that, bounty hunters, jedi and mechs:D
:fett: :ben: :atat:

09-16-2001, 10:13 PM
Mechs especially the at-at

10-24-2001, 06:42 AM
AT-AT's!!! I also like AT-ST's and AT-PT's.

10-24-2001, 06:51 AM
Bombers. I love attacks from the air. And have ground-commando's take out their anti-air turrets... LOL !

10-24-2001, 09:01 PM

10-24-2001, 10:29 PM
Mainly air, and anything from the troops center. Mechs are ok, but most good players have a load of grenadiers. So I prefer, air, troop center guys, and jedi.

10-27-2001, 09:52 PM
i like the regular hvy trooper cause the blaster he has is awsome

I personally like death from above combined with a bit of Pummeling...:)

11-18-2001, 09:47 PM
Mechs. All the way. I also really like Heavy Destroyer Droids, and Heavy Faamba Shield Generators. :atat:

Aircraft are cool as well, but often are shot out too fast for much use. They are better for attacking mobile armies, as opposed to dug-in bases.:naboo:

Whoa! This is a cool little smily!


11-18-2001, 10:44 PM
AT-AT's, beserkers & Tie defender's!

11-26-2001, 03:39 PM
Three words... Heavy Destroyer Droids. Yes I know i am being a bit redundant. In another thread I aspoused the glory of these little monsters. I feel it is worth saying again. The other unit though i am horribly loath to admit it is the Fambaa Shield generator of the <shudder> Gungans. Shields on the move ladies and gentlemen. That is where the difficulty will lie. Four of those Fambaa and your entire army is welllllll protected. An AT-AT is awesome....now imagine one partnered with a mobile shield generator. Just what I think.

I changed my mined a bit. I really like Destroyer Droids cause they are fast and have shields. and I like the Naboo adv. fighter, and the R2 units are the coolest workers in the game.

Of course AT-ATs:atat: :atat:

11-26-2001, 08:03 PM
I LOVE any AT units. Especially AT-AT's. :p :D :atat:

11-27-2001, 01:14 PM
AT-ATs:atat: and BOUNTY HUNTERS!:fett:

11-27-2001, 01:40 PM
There is no satisfaction greater than seeing your Imperial Walkers, the AT-ATs destroying everything in sight.

12-05-2001, 07:38 AM
The destroyer droid. The jedi/sith, of course.
However, the unit with most character to them just has to be the imperial strike mech . After seeing them I am spoiled and don't want to use any of the really uninspiring placeholders like the Naboo strike/mech destroyer/assault.
The graphics in this game are either brilliant or very bad. The Gungans and Imperial mechs are good looking.
I love the game, I am just being picky with graphics. I mean, if they made the mechs all "beast modelled", like empire, the game would have looked much better than it does now with all those trams and trucks for assault. I mean, the heavy assault mech of :bdroid2: looks very much like the heavy pummel of :bdroid2:

12-05-2001, 07:46 AM
the empires mechs are all good looking...

the trade feds troops are cool

whilst the naboo air units, and the gungun ships are the respective winners for me

12-05-2001, 09:11 AM
yeah i think my favorite unit is the hvy assult mech
anyrace you use it for still does a ton of damage

Supreme Warlord
12-05-2001, 03:54 PM
Plummels, AT AT, and Destroyer Droids. THEY ROCK!!!!!!!

12-05-2001, 04:28 PM
but what about troopers??

Supreme Warlord
12-05-2001, 04:35 PM
I think the Destroyer Droids is a trooper. Just a machine but a good trooper. I do like the AA troops becasue the kill off the air support.

12-06-2001, 03:24 PM
yeah well i think grande troopers suck

oh yeah there good agaisnt shelids but that is it


12-10-2001, 05:11 PM
Troops and Jedi. Troops pretty much crank out faster then nothing, while Jedi are just very neato. It's fun to sweep in with Jedi and troopers and steal workers to build a base inside the enemy's. Whoot!

Bad thing is Bountys rape Jedi like nothing, however with a Jedi rush, you shouldn't allow him time to recover. ( Jedi have incredible staying power....)

12-10-2001, 05:43 PM
is that meant to be sexually connotative?

Fighters, troopers, mechs, and ships. I don't like those cocky Jedi.

I think the Destroyer Droids is a trooper. Just a machine but a good trooper. I do like the AA troops becasue the kill off the air support.

It's a mech. The definition of a trooper is a person. No, wait, it's not a mech.. I'd say an attack droid. That should suffice. Okay, maybe "Light Mech" or "Anti-Infantry mech" :). I don't know.

12-11-2001, 04:27 PM
:deathii: I'm saying that the destroyer droids are the coolest by far. They roll, they have shields, they are fast...there is just very few things cooler than these.

However, I am partial to the airspeeder, as those babies are fast enough to hit and run almost any side part of an army :)

12-12-2001, 03:14 AM
I like a Empire + Trade Fed alliance. Then my favorite units are the air transport, the AT-AT, the destroyer droid and Sith/Jedi . Then you can have the transport drop 5 AT-ATs in or close to the enemy base from behind, move the AT-ATs into enemy base and unload 15 DDs and 15 Sith/Jedi!!!! Now that rocks!

12-31-2001, 07:25 AM
Ewoks + Wookies. those crazy furballs

12-31-2001, 10:22 AM
Gungan Mech's and Ships, And Naboo Air and Bounty's;)

12-31-2001, 01:33 PM
My faves are the AT-AT and the Destroyer Droid, both for damage capability and coolness factor.

Imperial Mechs, DDs, anything anti-air, and :bdroid2: 's Hvy Trooper.

01-15-2002, 03:56 AM
I've become very attached to Rebel Snowspeeders and Bombers. A big group of bombers will level any base....no matter how well defended!!!

Yes, a large group of bombers, especially if escorted properly with a nice mix of fighters and snow speeders, can kick some serious butt. The one time the computer-controlled wookiees came at me with major air power (while I was the TF) I got creamed... Good thing the computer usually neglects air power ;)

and bounty hunters to kill other jedi:fett:

Well, sorry if I am a bit our of sync here, but I have a few favourites:

:bdroid2: 's Destroyer Droids, :atat: 's, Jedi/Sith, Wookies troopers, and Beserkers, and I really like the look of the wookies fortresses....

02-08-2002, 08:54 PM
i am the 2nd one on this mighty thread to say this, but i really enjoy the rebel speeders. They are quite weak, and . . . well, they are easy fodder for anything with a rocket, but they look cool, and they're fun to move around, they're fairly fast, and they are really handy protection, esp if playing against those nasty AT-AT's.
kind of funny - given the support for the AT-AT's - that the lowly speeder makes easy mincemeat out of them,
regards all.

03-09-2002, 02:52 PM
well, i like air against comp, and a fully upgraded royal crusader rocks (250 health and sheilds). also jedi are pretty nice........:evanpiel:

03-12-2002, 10:01 AM
I like Empire mechs the most.

03-14-2002, 06:28 PM
My favorite to look at would be the AT ATs. I love the way it looks when 10 of them are tramping toward the enemy base. I rather wish they had a melee attack. I'm sure there are game balance reasons why they don't but the fearsome thing about them in the movie was with their enormous size they would step on anything that got in the way. It evokes primal fears of dinosaurs and the like.

I can't say I have a favorite unit to use in the game though. I guess if I were to pick one I'd say cannons. If you have a whole bunch of cannons (defended with some anti-air and repeater troops) whatever you click on will eventually be destroyed. It takes awhile to pack and unpack, but usually I've got nothing but time.

You can beat the enemy with any properly organized group of units though... well... except anti-air troopers. I'd say they're my least favorite unit. I usually don't build them.

04-05-2002, 12:59 PM
My favourites are following: Battledroid recruit, AAT, MTT, AT-AT and destroyer droids.:bdroid2: :atat:

Supreme Warlord
04-05-2002, 01:15 PM
My favorite is the Sith Lords. They are awesome looking people!!!


04-05-2002, 11:17 PM
Fully upgraded Berserkers. Ooooh, aaaahhhhh.

04-06-2002, 01:04 AM
GRENADE TROOPERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GRENADIER REPORTING!! :bdroid2: :bdroid2: :bdroid2:

I love using them, just have some backup and they can work wonders...

04-10-2002, 09:34 PM
i would have to sayy the a group of 3 AT-ATs with 30 Repeeater troopers and 2 AT-STs and 10 Advanced Fighters. Mainly because of its abilit to destroy everything and is able to counter almost any weekness exept agaisnt waves of Destroyers Droids and Jedi Masters but in my mind i Love the Combination. :atat: :atat: :atat: :dtrooper: :dtrooper: :dtrooper: :tie: :tie: :tie:

makes the enemy :explode:

My favorite unit is offcorse the sith lord!!!!

My favorite alliance is Wookies and Rebel Alliance. Favorite units: AT-AT :atat: :atat: :atat: :atat: :atat: (Empire rules the world!) and the Jedi-Knights and Jedi-Masters. :slsaber:

:lsduel: :duel: :mob:

04-16-2002, 03:05 PM
Well I would have to say I have a favorite in each civ almost

Empire: all the mechs

Naboo: the air forces fully upgraded along with some crusaders

Rebels: Snowspeeders for anti mech ops and jedi defense

Wookies: their heavy weapons do pretty well.

TF: DD's

Gungans: I hate the gungans


04-27-2002, 11:48 PM
One of my favorite units is the Faamba Shield Generator. Also I like the cruisers and heavy assault mechs :D

04-28-2002, 01:01 AM
I've changed my favorite unit to the Trooper...they are so awesome-looking in massed groups...tons of blasterfire going off at once looks awesome!

04-29-2002, 12:17 PM
My favorite to look at would be the Empire. To use? Wooks all the way baby. :D

05-26-2002, 04:57 PM
I have to say that nothing beats a group of jet-pack upgraded Berserkers. :wookiee: They may not be the strongest, but they sure look cool ripping through troopers, mechs, and buildings. Naboo Advanced Cruisers aren't bad either.

Post +1

06-05-2002, 03:57 PM
HHD of course. Decent move, nice damage, and numerous upgrades. Course, they'd be my favorite unit even if they weren't that good (I just love them in the movies...)


06-08-2002, 12:28 PM
Air Cruisers, Jedi starfighters, jedi and clone troopers

06-09-2002, 07:23 PM
I like Troops!

06-10-2002, 06:37 PM
Another good combo is a couple of Fambaas, 3 or 4 medics, and a bunch of gungan ships. I love the ability of the frigates to duck out of the way and since the medics can heal the ships... :) (It actually works fairly well with the gungan fighters too)


06-12-2002, 11:57 AM
Fully upgraded AT-ATs with cheap GE fighter cover... can't beat it with a stick

06-16-2002, 08:34 AM
i say Naboo air and some mechs. heros r cool too bad u cant build them

06-16-2002, 12:27 PM
all i can say is:atat:

06-19-2002, 08:58 PM
heros r cool too bad u cant build them

Would be cool if you can own 1 of each hero, Padmé and Anakin together and you soon have a large group of jedi padawans

10-24-2002, 11:57 AM
I like AT-AT's from Galactic Empire, Gungan Repeater Troopers and Wookiee Bowcasters. :atat: :jarjar: :chewie:

11-08-2002, 02:02 PM
I love ground warfare. I like mechs,hvyweapons and troopers(preferably repeaters):atat: :bdroid2:

11-09-2002, 03:45 PM
Republic troopers, because they get every trooper upgrade, including their civ-specifc Kaminoan Cloners, which churns out Clone Troopers extremely fast.

Confederacy troopers, because they also benefit from nearly every trooper upgrade, including their civ-specific Droid Upgrades, which gives their troopers a much higher attack (and I think range too).

Pummels, of any civilization. A dozen or so of these units (assuming you give them a little support) can wipe out an entire civilization.

Jedi Masters, because their ability to convert nearly anything very quickly (assuming you researched the right technologies) is very useful. Their powerful attack and speed are also both pluses. However, Jedi Masters are the only type I like. Padawans are next to useless, and Knights can't convert as much as Masters.

12-13-2002, 04:16 AM
GE mechs, Reb air, TF HDDs, Repub heavy arti (AC, can) and Jedi.

GE mechs are the best of their class.

Reb air are best of their class.

TF HDDs....are best anti-foot unit there is. Only two units other then Jedi masters give them chase (Wook bersk, Naboo Crusad)

Repub Jedi have the most upgrades and heavy arti move the fastest.

Also all have a high coolness look.

A bounty hunters only saveing grace is vs Jedi.
