I always play as the good guy as wel. I hate the narrowed, dogmatic view of the Jedi. I prefer the freedom to discover all aspects of the Force, just like the Sith. I hate terrorists that burn down houses of loyal Imperial citizens and they get paid for it (is this truly like the rebel filosophy???), so I make them pay in return. Though I generally prefer to make a pre-emptive strike against them before they burn down those buildings. I will bring peace and prosperity to the galaxy.

Uh oh. Delusion is a prime factor of becoming a Sith. Sounds like it got to you too. I hope it's not too late to avoid getting your face burned off and being thrown down a reactor ventilation shaft.

I turned to the DS years ago. Some test as to wich SW character I am showed me with Darth Revan and Exar Kun at 100%. Tie breaker put me into Revan though. And I already had my memery wiped, and I know LucasFils stated the LS ending of KOTOR is the canon one. But hey I'm the Dark Lord of the Sith so screw them, I make my own destiny (with a hot chick and a cool assasination droid by my side). Another even more important factor to go DS were the restrictions of the Jei on the use of the Force, especially Force Persuade (also stated this on armadafleetcommand.com just in case you read it there). I mean the Jedi do not use the Force for personal gain. So when I meet hot chicks I can't resist.

[Force Persuade] You want to have 'you know what' with me[/Force Persuade]

Merely stating this already has turned LightSiders to the DarkSide, but it may turn even more of them. [insert maniacal evil laugh here]

edit: I just noticed some spelling/grammar etc. errors, shouldn't drink whisky and type, when will I ever learn that.

edit 2: nearly Force Choked myself, shouldn't drink and experiment with the Force either.

LOL!

I like your style; can't fault you for that.

If you're going to lay down all morality, might as well do it with a vengeance. And a purpose. Getting laid by hot alien chicks is a noble one, for sure.

With the Rebellion I've wiped out far more than 6 ISDs in a battle. For one thing, 1 Mon Cal > 1 ISD. Also, you can't have more than 5 ISDs in action at once, as they fill 20 population slots. And you better have a lot more than just one more in reserve.

But I don't favor fighters and bombers either, personally. I'm more of a corvette and frigate kind of guy.

I love the greater challenges, like facing down big capital ships with only medium-sized frigates. That's always more satisfying than the more common cap ships vs. cap ships, in my opinion.

The most fun I've had in a space battle - from the other side, anyway - was killing Home One with half-a-dozen Acclamators. A very similar thing can be done against Imperial Star Destroyers. There's nothing that can't be beaten in this game; it's just a matter of tactics.

I won against 3 ISD's with 3 Tartans and I used 3 corellian corvettes, 2 corellian gunships and 12 bomber squadrons. So rebels still have some guts against ISD but hardly some of my units survived.

when l play l played the empire once in galactic conqest and the rebels once in galactic conqest.l found is that l retreated more often if l was the rebels but when l am the empire l'm trying to stop the retreats with interdicters.The is one problem with the empire is that interdictors is really weak the only thing the rebels have to do is send 3 bomber squadrons and blow it up into oblivion.

The ion cannon takes down shields and disables vessels for a short period of time, it doesn't destroy the engines.

what the ion cannon does is:
fires a shot which nearly disables ships for a long period of time,
the shields get completely depleted,
the rate of fire is reduced dramatically (i have only noticed the ion cannons firing after i shoot a ship)
as far as i can tell, it doesnt launch any more ships,
doesnt destroy the engines
stops it from moving - it just drifts, turning and spining, engines non operational
it will be out for around 1min

are you sure u r firing the planetary ion cannon, not the y-wing ion cannon, cause that takes down half the shields

I'm going to have to say Rebels. While their technology isn't amazing, the strategy needed to win with them is exactly what I love about them. They have diverse unit abilities, and they have the advantage of sneak attacks in Galactic Conquest. The Empire may have numbers, but as the movies proved, that doesn't always garentee victory.


Come on, did you actually think your destiny wasn't set?

At high levels strategy is still just as important. If you throw an MC Cruiser at an ISD, the ISD and it's bombers will probably win. You still need to take a good look at the enemy forces, and plan accordingly.

Lol same with the empire it can even be worse since those ion canons on those y-wings can take down sheilds rapidly.

Rebels are better at space:

Mon Cals rocks.

Cor Corvettes are pretty good, not as good as the imp ones, but does their job better than the gunship against bombers/fighters.

X-Wings with S-foils are great for jacking stuff on skirmish games, due to speed. Abuse it!!

Y-Wings does a good job as bombers (anti shield), and is one of the few useful fighters\ class out there.

And the SUper Ion Cannon is basically instant kill for space stations... hit once, and you take down their shields and more!!! all you need is to take the shield generator out and you can slowly skinn that scrap metal alive.

The rebels are better for more advanced players...empire for people wanting to blow stuff up, pretty simple. I have tried every single combination possible with this game and you can not I REPEAT can not beat the rebels (other than bombing run) if you set up a wall with 4 artilleries in the back, then put 2-4 infiltrators( best unit in the game) and then finally a few T4Bs...no atats will make it far enough in to destroy the artillery b/c they are so slow, and if opponent has empire artillery....take your fast infiltrarors and throw some bombs. if the ATAT focuses on just the T4Bs you can easily take them out with artillery...EASILY
In space combat get yourself at least 6-8 marauders and put them in at least 2 different corners with at least 1 corellian corv. protecting, and then send in a few assault ships to keep the various SD's occupied. if done correctly, (and against an opponent that doesnt think to scout map for the marauders) there is no way you will lose. A bombardment from 3 cruisers easily takes outs SD's.

Anyways, thats just my opinion...I LOVE them empire in the movies, just not in game lol


do you realize that palpatine created both armies...decided where and when they would go, decided where and when the jedi would go..and no matter what happened in any battle, he was the winner....i mean just imagine that...he is the most baller character in the history of cinema, literature, etc. Name one other person who was as smart as that guy and i'd have to call you a liar....too bad the jerk killed me in my sleep, plagus out.

Yeah, he foresaw everything. Just like he "foresaw" his own death at the hands of Anakin Skywalker and the destruction of his precious little battle station. Lemme guess: did he also foresee the destruction of the first Death Star too? Because if he did, he's actually not that good of a leader.

Ha! That was just a minor setback - that death star was actually only a decoy - why do you think it was that easily destroyed? And the emperor wasn't killed - it was only his stunt-double. He used that trick in order to flush out traitors. Yes, the rebel scum once again managed to wriggle themselves out of the trap - which is because they cheated (once again, furry savages aided them) - but the chase goes on! Those filthy criminals won't be able to escape justice forever! No matter how far they are fleeing - the Empire's hand will eventually reach them.

i wont argue with the ground bits, but your space strategy with the rebels can be done with the empire as well: 2 groups of Broadside cruisers and a Tartan protecting each group plus a few Victory SD's to keep the rebels occupied.
when under attack, the artillary ships will be shown, so there's no need for scouting.

what the rebels are best at are their X-Wings and Y-Wings, you didn't mention those

In the original game I found the Rebels were way too powerfull for such an insignificant treath to the Glorious Galactic Empire. So I edited some files. Those marauders (and broadsides as well) aren't much good when you need a level 9 space staion as well as tech 9 to get them. Add a range of 1 (not sure what happens with 0) and a damage of 0 to complement the ship's usefullness. Makes the game much more fun, as well as being a great increase to the SW factor in the game. Though I should get turbolaser on the Marauder Corvette and edit the VSD as well. I haven't tried editing ground combat yet, space comes first but the rebel artillary needs to be nerfed. Sae with the stupid T4-B, but I am thinking of replacing the T4-B and T2-B with the T3-B and T-1B. Also make all vehicles except the AT-AT unable to run over troops, or make infantry cover prefent that sort of thing. Nerfe the bombing run etc.

All Hail The Empire, stupid rebel insurgents.

You actually believe those lies that are constantly being circulated all over the HoloNet? Hmm, it seems I won't be able to turn you to the right side in this war. I guess I'll just have to wait until I meet your TIE fighter in my X-Wing. You'll be, what, kill number 156? Until then....

well, obviously no one can be perfect...but i mean the guy controlled everything in a galaxy of thousands of planets...for a heck of a long time. Arguing over tiny semantics is useless...the fact of the matter is that he OWNED lmao. If he was younger, he wouldn't have needed to try and snatch a new apprentice to take his place eradicating those pitiful rebellion members, but alas, age catches up to everyone and the guy was quite old. I mean he was already an old man when Anakin was a young pup...Imagine all those hours in plastic surgery...the face lifts, organ replacements...i mean its taxing on a guy!! If only that Joan Rivers person would have been there to give him advice...maybe things'd be different? lmao
All hail Emporer Plagus the Wise

In response to the combat thing. Yea the empire has the broadside cruisers but idk if its just me but ive found that the Marauder is more effective...Idk what the stats or anything are but there ya go. And the reason i didnt mention the xwings or bombers is because...i mean come on...a couple of tartans and it doesnt matter if you have 50 of each of them lol. But if they dont have tartans...bombers rip through s. stations and ships pretty quick...and they are perfect for hit and runs against hangars and shields...so i know what your saying...


(If those rebels would have just quit their complaining the Emporer could have brought p.e.a.c.e to the galaxy. He wouldnt need to blow up planets, or destroy those worthless bothans. The emp. wasnt evil, the rebels were! they were the ones fighting against peace...its true...lol lol

Quite obviously, you are one of the poor victims of rebel propaganda. They specialize in rounding up naive country boys on backwater planets and use those badly informed lads without any scruples in their terroristic attack on imperial citizens. Those people are easily swayed by the rebel's improbable tales and tend not to question the logic behind their motives ... they just see the romantic notion of the thing - not the reality.
It is FACT that rebels routinely do - instead of heroic fighting - cowardly bombing attacks on unsuspecting imperial installations.
It is FACT that - as has been already mentioned - it's the rebels who started this war and kept it alive.
It is FACT that rebels consort with smugglers and other criminals in order to achieve their fanatic and sinister goals.
It is FACT that they let wookies to run -without any leash or other methods of control- free on civilized and inhabited worlds ...
Did you know how many different diseases can dwell in the lush biotop of a wookie pelt? Did you ever see a rebel that could give you a proper decontamination certificate for his wookie? No? That's because they are SMUGGLING them past the proper authorities. Wookies are dangerously feral critters - and the rebels undermine our efforts to civilize them. Did you know that the first 'Death Star' had considerable medical facilities on board and was researching cures for deadly plagues? That it carried supplies for starving outposts? No? Rebels don't give you the whole picture - just their tiny, skewed version of it! Or did they tell you that - under imperial government - the IQ and degree of the citizens has risen by a significant degree? The Empire 's schooling system and the Palpatine-Charity-Fund for poor students is responsible for that!
And what do the rebels do? Fill the holonet with ridiculous tales of how single rebels are shooting down imperial elite troopers like clay pigeons. Did you ever wonder why Tie Fighters have no shields? Because we don't need them - unlike pitiful rebel pilots, we can evade shots. Imperial pilots can take down any number of rebel crafts. I've already bagged quite a few corvettes on my own - just in a good old reliable tie bomber. And X-Wings ... those flawed prototypes of an inferior fighter model ... they may have shields, but they are flying through space like a bulky crate with wings. Sure, we could duel - but to make it more interesting, be sure to bring along a few of your fellows.


Glory to the Empire!

Cowardly bombing attacks, eh? May I remind you of a little thing called the Ghorman Massacre? Or how about the destruction of an entire world, known as Alderaan? Who are the cowardly murderers now? And don't you dare give me any of your crap about how "Rebel terrorists" took control of the station's main weapon and fired it at the planet.

The Rebel Alliance started this war for a reason: To remove the tyrannical regime of that decrepid old man on Coruscant. Maybe if you listened to the truth instead of Imperial lies you could believe me. I for one, would gladly have freedom while in a state of civil war, instead of total lack of freedom while at peace.

Rebels consorting with smugglers and other "criminals"? Well, I guess that depends on your definition of criminal. I would like to bring up a situation that was fairly recent, only a few months before the Battle of Endor. It involved a deal between the Alliance and a coalition of smugglers led by a charming fellow named Dunari. The smugglers and the Alliance would help each other by securing the cargo of convoys bound for Imperial installations. We would, of course ensure the safety of any civilian convoy crews. It was working fine, until one of the member smuggler groups, the Hurrim, decided to destroy one of the convoys we were raiding. We could not allow this to happen, obviously, so instead of continuing our mission of disabling the convoy craft, we decided to prevent the Hurrim fighters from killing the innocent people aboard those freighters. Just goes to show you that while we do work with those of a dubious nature from time to time, there is a line that we will not allow to be crossed.

As for Wookiees, I'll have you know that they are quite an intelligent species and superior to humans in several respects. They have their own civilization, culture, art, music, and are capable of advanced architecture. You should really check out one of their tree-cities. Oh wait, you can't do that. The second you step on Kashyyyk, a Wookiee would probably tear you in half after he found out you were in the Imperial Navy....

And another thing, I'll have you know that I can evade blaster shots in an X-Wing just as good as any TIE pilot, and I guess I must be better, since I am flying the "inferior" spacecraft.
