It's spelled Wookiee, not Wookie, and I would also like to see the Wookiee Smuggler replaced with someone more true to the movies. The only Wookiee seen in the movies is Chewie, and there is nothing to lead us to believe Wookiees were ever teamed with the Rebels in the movies.

Yeah, the Alliance must not be that big on Wookiees.

Somewhat off-topic (sorry) but didn't think it warranted a seperate thread: What is the advantage of the Wookiee? Can they take more damage than the average trooper? I haven't had much success as this class, so I pretty much stay away.

It's spelled Wookiee!

The Wookiee Smuggler has more health than other units, which is probably his biggest advantage. The grenade launcher is good for scattering enemy troops, and the bowcaster when charged up can be great in close-range. The only real use for the time bombs is for destroying the Endor Shield Bunker, but that's really it.

The Wookiee Smuggler isn't for everyone. I don't really use him, but it can be decent in certain situations.

Sorry, I swear I put that other "e" in there, but my fingers must have decided they were too lazy. I edited the post to read Wookiee

Well, I'll definitely give the Wookiee a couple more tries - the useless manual didn't tell me I could charge the bowcaster.

It would be nice if the time bombs could have a timer mode or a trigger mode (where you could lay it like C4 and remotely detinate).

Thanks!

Ah but that's where you're wrong! We see Wookies in Episode I (they have their own Senate seat).

As far as insults go, remember Leia called Han (a human) a "stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerfherder" and "laser brain."

I still think that they should replace the (Crappy,Slow Moving) Wookiee, and put back the Bothan Spy.

Talking about the Trilogy here, Kurg.

And you're just never going to spell Wookiee right are you?

Wink are we just both nitpickers about different things??

Oh you're talking about the classic trilogy, okay fine. But when you say "the movies" that includes the Prequels, which are canon. Ha!

As to the wookie spelling, see my sig. ; )

I don't see anything bad with the Darktroopers. I mean, they can just jump high, and then you have to wait like half a minute to jump high again. They're slower too.


If anything, they're harder to control; you won't see any newbies using them.
