what is the 'aside?' I used to be here more often, but oh well. I voted for once or twice a week. I'm glad to see new files, and this new poll!
Twice a day. My loyalty to this site is unfliching. You can almost compare it to that of a Stormtrooper's loyalty to the Empire.
Don't listen to those guys, Maver! You go on with your life, and make us all proud. It would be nice to have new files and all, but hey, you've given us really awsome mods and maps. Thanks and to all of those who made the mod/maps. Really. Thank you for making this game over 9000 times better than it was before.
-Your loyal follower, Median Starkli.
I assume the "aside" is a note that due to a glitch with the site's servers, the site more often than not displays (incorrectly) the site as it was in March of last year, rather than the site as it currently is. Same reason the files posted since then typically only show up after refreshing the page 5 times or so.
Yeah, bingo. It's been so long since I'd put up a poll (I don't usually bother, since the site-reversion error makes half the poll comments post on the wrong poll) that I forgot that polls drop text after a certain number of characters, and since the polls are so wonky anyway, I didn't want to chance updating it to fix it.
The gist of it is like you said, I basically was just telling users to refresh the site. I think that most of us who spend time here frequently know this anyway, but it can't hurt to write it again.
And I think we're at an auspicious date! It's been one year to the day since the site has worked properly. What a fun anniversary!
Edit: Actually, scratch that. We passed the one-year mark a while ago, I forgot that before we had the site reversion error, we had the error where we couldn't post pictures to files.
I have the POTD's bookmarked in a list that I visit daily. I check out the main page once every few months, and check out new files to read the reviews when it's mentioned on GT that it was available here.
Sorry guys i have moved on so i may only come on a few times a year... I'm happy to see one of my pics got up though!
I would nearly have clicked on the last option, just because I like the caption
However I visit the site quite regulary, because I am still an SWBF II edict and I will probably be forever
@Staff (Mav I guess^^): I uploaded my Bespin: Urban Canyon map as UCM.zip a while ago. It's still in the row, right?
This site is actually my homepage and I take a look around every time I use my browser, even if i just look at potds for a pastime, im not really well known around here but I expect that I will still use this site for years to come. I hope this site doesnt end up like the command and conquer filefront site, at that site the file of the week is still from 2005.
still here... though eaw files is stuck on last year
oh, so thats why everythings from last year! you REALLY need to fix that.
um the site is gonna be updated at some point right cause i dont want it to go to archive i was planning to make some maps

My vote: You'll be dead!
So what? I'm wanted on 10000 star systems for going on my anti-clone canpaigns and shouting "dragonzord" too much that people think I'm actualy the Green Ranger. You know what? They're right. It's MORPHING TIME: DRAGONZORD!
Vote: I don't like you either.
SWBF2 has turned into a site for comparing fleets from Homeworld2 with Star Wars Warlords mod. Will you change the name to HW2SWWfiles or something?

Clone wars, Clone wars, Clone wars, Clone wars. Everything is clone wars, now. What happened to Galactic Civil War? The times of pure bad***ness? ... nevermind. I vote civil.
Same, Galactic Civil War. You can't beat the time of the Super Star Destroyer's.
just to be different im going with new republic
republic class SD ftw and it has classic imp SD in it too
so all aroung great
WHOA..........................Clone Wars, guys? Really?!?!?! I concur with Median...I mean yeah the Galactic Civil War era is, like, the best. And, well, that era's Star Destroyers are the best. Old Republic Star Destroyers are pretty cool, too, though. Honestly, I can't say much about the Legacy era Star Destroyers, as I don't really know what those Star Destroyers look like at all. By the way I voted for Galactic Civil War era Star Destroyers, as they rock and are total classics.
Imperials FTW. The republic is tight and all, but I perfer GCW era.
apparently we've intimidated the children from arguing about TCW/GCW
everybody said civil war, but the clone wars is winning.
civil war- SSD, SD, victory star destroyer, victory-2 class frigate, acclamators.
clone wars/old republic- venator, acclamator.
legacy- eclipse, new republic SD.
in my opinion, the civil war is better.
Oh my, this is a tough decision . . . I think the Interdictor-class (Leviathan) of ship from the Old Republic era was particularly epic looking, but Super Star Destroyers (including Eclipse) provide a worthy match-up . . .
. . . the Leviathan wins. +1 for Old Republic era.
Clone Wars? Really? More children I bet. Still stuck up with their pathetic Clone Wars TV shows. You know, I have two daughters, and they have never mentioned the SLIGHTEST interest in the Clone Wars TV shows. They are just old enough to understand what the characters talk about, but they don't care. Now back on topic: Whatever has the Allegiance and the Titan. No doubts about it. You can not beat the Allegiance and the Titan. Or the Eclipse and Sovereign and Vengeance. Everything I just mentioned. They win. End of discussion.
Very hard one. I like every kind of Stardestroyer. But in my opinion the destroyers while the time of the clone wars look the best (for example : Venator!!! :thumbsup
But the civil-war-destroyers are also very impressive.
1 : The Design
2 : The size
3 : The firepower
I can't say much about about Old / New Republic, because I don't know these two eras very well (shame on me ).
My vote is : .....Clone wars.
Dude, one of the many reasons as to why I side with the Empire.
i like the clone wars SD's, but i like the galactic civil war better.
I agree with everyone that its ridiculous clone wars is winning. Just because clone wars is "the thing" with all the star wars fans it seems like. I always thought galactic civil war was cooler, it was just grittier and felt more like a space adventure.
*sigh* The Old Republic era isn't getting the love it deserves . . .
yeah, number ten, that's cool. we should recruit a username for everyone we know and vote on civil war.
Reoublic destroyer yeaaaaa!!!
How is clone wars winning?
Empires Star Destroyers for the win!
If you've only watched/read the clone wars, please get out of here before I call an orbital bombardment from a Super Star Destroyer.
I have never seen those dumb cartoons and I think the Republic ships are cool.
Why do all you GCW guys freak out because of the clonewars? I like the clonewars more than GCW and that´s not because of the cartoon! The republic is just more stylish in my opinion and their Capitalships look much cooler that the impereal ones. Even the ones of the CIS look good. But in my opinion those mon-calamari ships are as ugly as the butt of a Wampa!
I vote for clone wars. And nobody can blame me for that! It´s my opinion!
First off, learn how to spell Imperial. Second, Mon Calamari Cruisers and CIS ships have nothing to do with this conversation, so leave them out, third, you're obviously young. You don't like a combat unit because of the way it looks. You like it because of the way it works, how it holds up in battle. Yes, the Republic is more stylish, but when it comes right down to it, here are the facts: 1, the Empire has more advanced technology. 2, the Empire is smarter. 3, the Empire, and all other associated factions were run way better than the Republic. End of discussion.
Perhaps because when they brought out "Star Wars: A new Hope", it was in... what? 70s? 80s? My point is, the special effects weren't so advance as it is now. And now, with all the awsomeness of Special Effects, George Lucas made the Republic look mind-blowing with new tecnology with "Revenge of the Sith". There's your style. Now, concider this. Would you still be liking the CW just because of what they are? Or because of the epicness if "The Phantom menace" Would've been done in the time of "A new Hope"?
Indeed Median, indeed.
Sooner or later I'm gunna have to make an Empire vs. Republic map the settle this score once and for all! Da Empire FTW!!!!
Besides that, simplicity and blandness is also stylish in its own right. Imperial ships may have drab grey coloring, but this also serves to show they are focused on something more important then "looking good" like the Republic cares about.
CRUSH THE REPUBLIC SCUM!!!
Ty, the campaign in BFII had empire vs. clones. so there. and i see where the clone trooper fan is coming from, all the kids think that the prequel trilogy has newer tech. well, if you pay attention to the chronology, you will see that the empire obviously had newer technology. they came in later.
I didn´t mean that the republic is better. But I just like them more! The questions wasn´t: "What do you think is better?" The question was: "What do you like most?". And I just like the clonewars more. And I like their capital ships more. I did never say that they´re better than the impereal ones.
Well you blame me for spelling wrong a word in a language that isn´t my homelanguage. As you can see I´m a german. And I´m very young. I´m very good at egnlish for my age. And now: Would you be able to spell everything perfect in german? I don´t think so! But I wouldn´t blame you for that!
If you really wanna now I´m just 16. So really young! And? I´m old enough for this game and so old enough for this side. And I usually don´t write anything without thinking of it before. (USUALLY... not always >.<
And I just want to say: I wrote my opinion! If it´s not your opinion: Good for you! I mean everyone has the right to have and tell about his own opinion. At least in Europe, but I don´t think it´s different in America.
IT´S my opinion! I respect your opinions and you respect mine. That´s how it works. If you don´t respect mine: Your problem.
Sorry if it sounds a bit hard but I hate it if someone blames someone just for his opinion.
Your opinion. I respect it. What I do not stand is the fact that clone lovers such as you (don't take this pesonally, for I have no intention to offend) is that since Episodes 1-3 came out with State-Of-The-Art Special Effects and green screen stuff, it makes them look way more epic and mind-blowing than the Special effects of Episodes 4-6. This make the Novice fans (clone lovers) love the CW movies and dislike the classic movies, especialy with the despicable series running (WTF!? Ahsoka goes to the Dark Side, then gets killed, but was resurected!? By a SITH!? Just stay dead, goddamit!). My point is that people don't appresiate the classics because they are "old-school" in a way to put it, therefore, have no interests in seeing crappy graphics, and prefer the modern movies. You like the clones because you simply like them, and I respect that. Others like them because of the modern grafics and stuff. But, like I said in my pevious post. They would be saying thing like "The rebels FTW!" or "Rebels forever" or things like that if the movies were made in opposite timelines.
Woah, woah, woah . . . Ahsoka Tano was killed!? VICTORY! I've always hated that she-bat. Her only redeeming quality is her lightsaber technique.
Well, I guess you´re right and many people like the clone wars only because of the effects and so on. But not me. And please don´t understand me wrong! I like the GCW, too! And of course the Imperial Star Destroyer has more firepower and propably a better armour than the Republican Attack Cruiser. But I just LIKE the Republican Attack Cruiser more because of its style. And it´s firepower, armor and shield was enough to beat the CIS.
I like the clone wars because there also are my favourite Jedi. Anakin, Obi-Wan, Mace Windu and and and... And the clones are by THEIR side. I just love the clones. Imperial or Republic isn´t important. I like both. But the republic just more because they are still on the Jedi´s side.
@ all Rebelguys: The imperial army isn´t evil, their leaders are!
No median, I hope you can understand me a bit more. I totally understand why you like the Empire (or just their Star Destroyers).
They are the best armed army ever seen in Star Wars.
And you talked about the clone wars.
Well: I didn´t watch the NEW movie with ash-kan or however you spell her name right. Reason? The new Clone Wars movie just doesn´t fit with the real Star wars. Anakin isn´t a Jedi-Master but gets an apprentice??!! WTF?!
I prefer the old two-part- Clone Wars movie. It fits with the Episodes, you see why Grievous has a... let´s call it "breath-problem" and it´s sometimes funny.
I think you can now understand why I like the Clone wars so much. (Especialy the CLONES themselves. Droids are just funny, but non-skilled^^)
@27. Call me nuts, but I actually like the old movie effects better than new movie effects. They're slower, but look more real. You can easily tell every cursed thing is animated in the new movies...
Sorry Yammka, she got resurrected like ten minutes after she died. Maybe less, I didn't watch the episode.
I prefer the Empire, and one of the reasons is that very first scene in Episode IV. Anyone who says that wasn't a bad*** introduction to Star Destroyers has a problem. Venators are OK, but they look a little too perfect. So, I choose Empire.
I definitely prefer the Galactic Civil War Star Destroyers over the Clone Wars ones, and not just the Imperial ones, the New Republic's New Class Modernization Program ships are also great. Don't get me wrong, I would gladly command a Venator-class Star Destroyer any day, but a Nebula-class Star Destroyer is just impressive.
@Clone Trooper Fan: I completely agree with that assessment about the "new" Clone Wars too. Ahsoka Tano doesn't fit into the story, and *cough*The Clone Wars*cough*, in general, is just ridiculous and destructive to the saga.
I know full well this is a double post.
The New Republic should be in the Galactic Civil War and never associated with the *cough*Legacy*cough* era.
How does the New Republic not fit in with the Legacy Era. It was created after the fall of the Empire so that the galaxy wouldn't go into turmoil with no leadership. I don't see how it doesn't fit in with the Legacy Era.
well, median, for not liking the show (understatment, i assume) you sure know about one of the most recent episodes.
One word, comrad. Wookieepedia.
Oh, and you looked up ashoka? your least favorite character? or what?
In other news, I'll bet the next poll will be about season 3 of TCW.
Not really. I was bored and looked up Anakin/Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Wedge Antillies (my fav character), and Princess Liea (I think). On Anakin/Darth Vader's portfile os where I founded out.
My fav SW ship on my fav game. I have this mod, too!
I gotta say, the Empire's ships ('cept for the run of the mill TIE fighter) kicked butt. Their technology level, army, navy, looks and style, pretty much everything were awesome. I love the GCW SDs. So they're definitely getting my vote.
@Marvel, that YouTube clip was pure win. Brings back memories of SWG, acutally... Ohhh, nostalgia.
@Everyone who likes GCW
Older effects, much better era I think. I almost kinda like the older effects, like Ty said they almost look a bit more realistic. Many people DON'T like the GCW because it's older, and for a little while in my early Star Wars years, I was one of those people. But I am a die-hard GCW fan. Star Destroyers aside, REBELS ALL THE WAY! (And that opinion was SWG inspired, yes)
@Clone Trooper Fan
I respect your opinion as well, and must agree that there ARE certain aspects that I like about the Clone Wars era such as the Jedi being more abundant and the clones fighting for them, but I will always love GCW more (Much because of the incredible 3 years I had on Star Wars Galaxies. I'm ALWAYS gonna TOTALLY love that era/game!!!!!)
Also, for the most part you're right, Imperial troops/officers aren't evil, their leaders are. Of course, there are regular people who are "evil" in the Empire.
Anyone else noticing a Nazi Germany-Empire similarity?
People forced to fight for someone who is more-or-less evil, but in some respects can offer a better life/government after everyone had been in practical turmoil for years? Hopefully people'll see where I'm coming from with this.
WW2 fans/junkies, if you're here... I salute you, and ask that everyone give me your thoughts on the above.

Whatever has the most units for me to pointlessly slaughter.
It depends. If it's normal Hero assault, then no. It's boring. Hunt depends on who the characters are, and Space and CTF are fun, but I prefer other things, like XL or something like that.
I always enjoy a nice flight. The other modes aren't so interesting... unless it's campaign mode.
I don't get it, why do so many people seem to like space? It's way too repetitive for me, I go in with my heavy transport, deposit people, destroy sub-systems from the interior, destroy frigates and by then the battle is usually over. I liked the campaign missions because they actually gave us something interesting to do with each objective.
Anyway, I chose Hero Assault. Darth Maul is probably my favorite to play as because of his wicked sprint.
There are a lot of good and interesting modes, so it's hard to say.
But I think I would choose CTF. In singleplayer it's a bit boring because you're very OP compared to the bots (They are also so stupid in Conquest, so that doesn't matter ), but in Multiplayer CTF is definitifely my favourite.
A thing that really annoys me with conquest is that you really loose very fast if there are only Noobs on your team and the enemy takes all the CPs.
In CTF you can't capture CPs and the that's the point for me.
Hero Assault is boring and Space Assault is a thing you can play once or twice but not more often. Hunt depends on the sides. XL is just senceless shooting and I don't like it.
What else have we got?
Well, my winner is : CTF
Story mode ftw. Rebel Ops....
Not very many people seem interested. A pity. I'd like to know the average user's opinion.
I'm a big fan of hunt mode at the moment. Great fun, and doesn't go on too long.
I prefer XL it has so many units that it is fun to use a vanguard, shock trooper, etc. or anything that can send a lot of explosive ordnance down range and take out many enemy's at once. launch a rocket and watch ten bodies flying threw the air.
I prefer space battles in multiplayer. IWhen you can fly on starfighter , fight in enemy hangar or defend your own one.And, of course, decide, who is the best pilot. ever=)

Okay, finally a new poll. This one is interesting. I'm going with AT-AT, cause of it's massive firepower, dispite it's slow movement.
I gotta give it to the AT-AT. Nothing else inspires fear in ground warfare like a good ol' fashioned AT-AT.
This has to be the easyest poll ever. I'm gonna put the walkers based on my liking:
#6. AT-PT: From my POV, it's not too powerfull to do any serios damage and can easly be a quick target. However, it can be efective against Infantry...
#5. AT-XT: I'd say it's the 'older' version of an ST, and it has to be the ugliest walker I've ever seen. However, It can actualy do some damage than other veicles the Clones have...
#4. AT-ST: Much more armed than the XT, but, I'd say... weaker than average veicles, I mean, even Ewoks could bring the things down!
#3. AT-RT: This one would be my "motorcycle" if you know what I mean. I don't like the fact that it's a bit slower than the XT, and that the pilot is vunreble to snipers or something like that. However it's prettyer, and an exelent anti-personell unit from my POV.
#2. AT-TE: As much as I hate clones, I have to admit that the AT-TE has to be respected, I mean, look at it, it can climb vertical walls, is heavly armed, and can be considered nearly unstoppable... unless a hailfire droid fires missiles at it. Other than that, It was a great machine that it was still being used during the GCW! My respects to this war mech.
#1: AT-AT: Of cource, this one PWNS ALL! It has Heavy laser cannons that can do immense destruction to anything that gets in it's way, and is heavly armored that most weapons cannot penertate! Due to it's effectiveness, for what I know, this walker was still in service during 130 ABY! Now that's a long time for something so obsolete! I do not like the fact that it can be tripped by towcables, and that it is not very manuverable than that of a AT-TE, but it's way more effective in destroying things... Not to mention coolness, and epicness!
Remember this only by my POV. I have no intention to start a conflict.
IMO AT-TE is the best.
What about the AT-AP? Didn't even make the list?
AT-At. All the way.
Yes, ATAT all the way. I dont know why.
HEY! ATAT is losing to the ATTE!!
tossup between AT-AT AT-TE and AT-ST
I'm not surprised. Kids these days...
i like all those vehicles, but the AT-TE wins for me. i had an inner struggle because i wanted to vote for the AT-AT too, but my choice is the AT-TE. i think it's more useful in a battle because it carries heavy arming with a good speed. the AT-AT on the other hand is stronger but slower and less maneuverable.
well, that's my opinion...
Surely the AT-TE is my favourite. It looks amazing and has got quite a lot of firepower and, of course, it appears in the clone wars area.
AT PT is what i went for but AT AT is tied along with it.
Wow I thought for sure the classic AT-AT would win this one!
OOOOOOOOOOOHH!!!!! I chose AT-TE, with AT-AT in second and AT-RT in third. The AT-AT is just an awesome classic, but the AT-TE is a pretty cool design...and the AT-RT is a really cool one-man vehicle.
at-te? really? hmm oh well. at-at = classic
Consider this, people: An AT-TE with the firepower, armor, and transport space of the AT-AT, and everything else of itself.
Does that peak your interest?
After seeing this post, I have this horrible feeling that if Staff decides to make a poll on Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker, that Anakin will get more votes than Darth Vader...

What? Hey! Where's the bad*** missile launcher? That is by fear the BEST "toy" Boba Fett will ever have! Since it's not here, I'd say the second best is his jetpack. Too bad that cost him his doom, into the sarlacc...
I have to go with the armor. That armor just looks bloody wicked.
well, flamethrower all the way. it's awesome.
Jetpack is voted the most?
and no helmet?
In my opinion the armor is best
His blaster rifle, well the EE-3 Carbine version not stock SWBFII.
FLAMETHROWER IS THE BEST!!!:smile:
Why do people even choose the wee little jetpack?
I vote ARMOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Forget the jetpack, why wasn't the missile launcher here!? That is by far the BEST weapon Boba could ever have!
forgot everything the grappling hook is the best i would be very happy if someone make a mod so that clones have it too
Jetpack of course! Who doesn't like to fly!?

WHITE LIGHTSABER!!! I'd definately have a pure white lightsaber, and then it will be red. Soaked by Ahsoka's blood!
No. seriosly. I'd have it white. Pure awsomely white, like I have 'em on Starkiller's lightsabers on TFU II.
Same as Starkli. The silver blades. I'd have two of them, capable of joining together to form one double-blade.
Purple, as Mace Windu is the only jedi I really like. Though, they could have made his dialogue a bit better, more like Jules's lines from Ezekiel 25:17 in PF!
A lightsaber in really DARK blue would be nice. Blue lightsabers are the best!
Blue. Blue lightsabers.
For some reason I life orange. Perhaps because no one in any movie has used it yet.
One of the main characters I've created has a white lightsaber. For me this would be my color.
I'd wield duel sabers; one purple one red. Red cause I'm dark side, purple cause it's my favorite color.
Ummm... don't you mean "dual sabers"?
The Color doesnt mater that much the only thing that maters is the weapon I chose blue
Nice color combo, Ty. All you need is Revan's robes/armor and a Mandalorian helmet and you're good to go.
I love orange. So I would definitely have an Orange saber. Maybe a scimitar though.... those are awesome.... An orange light-scimitar....
well, i can picture myself: man in black robes with single red lightsaber. i love black, and red gos good with black. why do you think sith didn't wear white robes? if not red, then dark blue like thrawn46 said.
Negative saber. Like in TFU.
I want a pink saber. Sounds kinky.
I'd choose red colors, moahahaha, I joined the dark side >
If I was light side, I'd have a regular length blue single saber (that's what I chose). If I was dark side, I would use a single regular length orange saber (like a Heart of the Guardian saber from KotOR) for duels and up-close battles and a purple longsaber for reflecting blaster bolts. I'd probably use that for reflecting blaster bolts in ranged battles. I'd definitely have all of my lightsabers on me at all times.
Aayla Secura had two different lightsabers. I don't see why I shouldn't either.
I'd have blue if i had a choice of one, but if I had two sabers to dual weild then blue and red, or both blue like in TFUII.
Yellow and orange, because those are my favorite colors. AND jedi do not use red lightsabers, and it isn't which side you would join poll.
green and purple. Not because of barney, but because of the psychological effect.
Dark red, it surprises me that red doesn't end up first
@18: Actually, she never used more than one blue lightsaber, except in Battlefront...
#23 Yeah that's true...only one.
wait, why does purple have the least votes, even less then yellow? (blarrgh )
Mine would be white with a green stripe
purple is the best! I don't see why all the boring colors won. Blue?! Every lightsaber is either green or blue for Jedi! Stand Out! PURPLE ALL THE WAY!
Orange backhand! It's just a general systematic choice for all of us to choose
i put blue but sometimes i think green ;D
The fact that blue is winning has caught me by surprise. I was expecting more red and/or other (white) lightsaber color would've been in first...
I would have a yellow lightsaber, because all banned jedi got a yellow one.
I think i wouldnt stay very long at the councel!
And i like yellow!

Everyone should realize that the Maleviolence is a huge deadly CIS cruiser even more deadly then the Invisible Hand and it is controlled by General Grevious.
The Avenger, is a super-sized Republic cruiser that has never lost a battle.
No idea what each of them are, but I'll look and post/vote later.
I can't decide. They're both very good ships.
If you have seen Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network, you would remember that episode where Anakin Skywalker leads his tropps against the Malevolence. The most dangerous weapon is it's Ion Cannon or whatever it is. It disables ships and then they blow up.
The Avenger is a Star Destroyer that is seen in The Empire Strikes Back that waas chasing the Millenium Falcon.
I can't decide which is superior, but I like the Empire so I choose the Avenger, mainly because it has never lost a battle.
To be honest, I really have no clue whatsoever. Both ships are pretty powerful. According to Wookiepedia, the Malevolence has an armament consisting of 500 twin turbolaser cannons, 5 point defense light laser cannon batteries, 2 tractor beam batteries, and 2 ion pulse cannons. The Imperial Star Destroyer Mark II (what the Avenger was) has an armament of 8 octuple turbolasers, 5 heavy turbolasers, 5 turbolasers, and at least 26 additional turbolasers, along with 20 heavy ion cannons and 10 tractor beam batteries. Also, if we look at size, the ISDII does look a bit out of it's class. According to Wookiepedia, the ISDII is 1.6 KM long. The Subjugator-class Warship, however, is around 4.8 KM long. But since when does size matter? I don't know if these number are correct, and please don't start saying I'm a moron, because I'm basing these off of what Wookiepedia said, and I'm not saying that they're accurate. I'm not going to vote until I read what other people have to say, what others say always seems to shed light on the situation.
I'm guessing that after all the years between the Malevolence and the ISDII that they would have come up with A: A defence against that ion weapon and B: Cannons that have longer range. (Because the ion weapon outranged the other guns, giving the Malevolece the advantage). Another thing to consider is strategy. The Avenger could send all it's bombers towards the Malevolence to bomb it's ion weapon while staying out of range.
Same as Jdg50 on this one, but i vote avenger
i agree with FighterRex. it depends on stategy. and all i know is that as soon as the avenger is in range, the ion pulse cannon on the malevolance will disable him, and the SD will be obliterated. not that these two ships were operating at once, but i still vote the malevolance
Very easy. Avenger. All the way.
Reason #1: It's much more modren than the sorry-excuse-for-a-cruiser, and this... Malelvo-whatimajiggy is obsolete.
Reason#2: An Ion cannon? The Empire's Star Destroyers are allready equipped with those things all over it! Hell, they even got fighters equipped with Ion guns!
Reason#3: Like a few have said, the Avenger hasn't lost a battle... unless the battle of Endor, if it was there in the first place...
See, it was this kind of response I was hoping to see... because it is so completely ridiculous. One is a superweapon, the other is a standard destroyer. You're talking about maybe a 30-year difference between the two in terms of tech, and this is in the Star Wars universe, where tech advancement is sluggish at best on a grand scale. Even if you look at it on an Earth scale, a 30-year old battleship with ten times as many guns as a modern cruiser would still pulverize the modern cruiser.
The Malevolance doesn't just have an ion cannon, it has a super-laser-scale ion cannon that could take out entire fleets of proto-Star-Destroyers. A single planet defender ion cannon (a standard ground emplacement) was too much for one Star Destroyer to handle, and this superweapon gets written off because it's old? So are proton torpedoes, and they were good enough to blow up a Death Star. The Death Star itself was tech conceived in the Clone Wars.
It is always amusing to see people answer these polls with "oh duh answer X, because it's Imperial, and they're the best because I like them."
I don't really go further than "I like the Avenger, cause the Empire is awesome!", but here goes.
What Mav said. It's all about how many guns you have, how big your ship is, and who is controlling the ship.
Guns: Guns, guns, guns. It's always gotta be guns! If a tank and a cruiser got in a fight, who would win? The cruiser, cause it has multiple weapons while the tank has one (1). In this case who would win: Malevolance or Avenger? The Malevolance. Why? 800 turbolasers to blast your @$$ into oblivion!! And an ion cannon the size of a corvette. Nuff said. Moving on.
Size: Bigger isn't better, stronger isn't braver, taller isn't always wise. Yes, I got that from a Broadway musical. Not it isn't always true. You know that saying, "it's not about the size of the boat, it's the motion of the ocean"? Forget that. In this scenario I want the Titanic! I would say Malevolance cause it is 4.8 km versus the Avenger's 1.6 km.
Leadership: Let's see. A reptillian robot versus a human. I would say Grievous all the way since he is just a complete d-bag in the Star Wars universe and is brutal on epic proportions. If Grievous was a superweapon, he would definitely be the Malevolance. And honestly, Grievous would wreck any captain who makes one-liners about his hobby while at work. "Good, our first catch of the day". Honestly. But I do agree that if the Avenger were to stay out of range and send in a fleet of bombers, it would wreck shop.
The Facts: Malevolance, Malevolance, mostly Malevolance
My Opinion: Avenger. Empire ftw!
Mav, you were totally right, and that's exactly what I did. i just choose the Avenger 'cause it's an Imperial Cruiser and there's only a 30-year difference. After reading Mav's comment, I changed my mind almost immediatly after reading it. Not just because he said he rather chooses the Malevolence, but beacuse of the factors I didn't encounter, and after reading Wookieepedia's info on both of these ships and studying closer, I change my vote.
I would say the Malevolence would win because of two reasons.
1.) The Malevolence has a big enough ion cannon to completely disable the Avenger with one shot. The avenger does have ion cannons too, but they are too small to disable a ship with one shot. It needs a lot of shots and by the time they hit 50-100 or so, they are already shot by the huge ion cannon on the Malevolence.
2.) The Malevolence has more cannons and turrets than the avenger. Sure, the Avenger is huge, but it has hardly any cannons on it. In my opinion, it was based on size, so they could frighten their enemies and make them lose the will to fight them.
... That bada&%$ is the Malevowatimajiggy? Dang. There goes my way of thinking. I still like the Imps, though... ... ... Do you think the Malevo-thing could take on the Executor?
Maybe? I didn't make a more well-known Imperial ship the other choice, though, because I wanted to see if people would think about their votes. The Executor has a lot more conventional firepower than the Malevolence does, but the Malevolence still has that super-weapon, which is probably an effective one-shot against any capital ship. I thought about making it Malevolence vs. Eclipse, which would really just boil down to whichever ship got the jump on the other, since the Eclipse's superlaser could destroy the Malevolence in one shot but the Malevolence's ion cannon could probably take the Eclipse out of battle in one shot.
i think the eclipse would win because destruction isn't the same as shutdown. but that doesn't matter. i voted for avenger because A) i don't like TCW and B) there's the malevolence in a mod for EaW, but it's very easy to destroy in that mod. i know that's a bad reasoning but i don't care this time
Also, doesn't the Malevolence only have ONE ion cannon that size? If so, the Avenger could just out-manouver it to flank it on its weak side.
@ Rogue_Clone: no, it has two ion cannons, one on each side.
depends weather the avenger gets the emp thingy off the malevolence and if it does the malevolence is screwed
I Go With Molevolence
i vote for the Avanger because i like star destroyer more than the Malevolance. and actually, the malevolance was just blowed up after a two or three episodes of clone wars^^ typical luck of general grievous^^
Malevolence for me. I saw the comments and i thought gosh, 800 turbolaser vs. what, 44 guns , which are more powerful but get their @$$ kicked by the 2 ion cannons. I don't think the avenger could destroy the Malevolence before the subjugator got those ion cannons firing to disable the Avenger and beat the stuffing out of it with the 800 turbos that were mentioned. Malevolence all the way
Malevolence. 1 because of the bad@$$ gun on that thing and 2 because of a particular cyborg called grievous at the controls.

Star destroyers have bigger guns and also out gun the mon Cals... I think. But, I do know that SDs have bigger guns.
MC80 would win.
I'm not going to get all technical with this one, I'll just go with the Victory Star Destroyer due to more firepower.
Star Destroyers are always the best!!!
In X-Wing Alliance, Mon Cal is way better then a Victory Star Destroyer. Remember, a Victory-Class Star Destroyer is like half the size of a regular Star Destroyer. Mon Cal wins.
A nuke can be packed in a suitcase these days.
A huge bomb of 8000 kilo's pure TNT is massive and huge.
My point: Size doesn't matter.
I'd still go with the mon cal since I played soooooooo (maybe a little to much) much empire at war, try a victory vs mon cal, your victory really doesn't stand a chance.
Wow, Its not a SD guys. Anyone who played Eaw,Foc or X-wing allaince knows what I mean. Victory cruisers have less firepower then Mon calamari....
on the one hand, there are MC80 Home One-Class and MC80 Liberty-Class. first one has 36 turbos and 36 ion cannons, second one has 48 turbos and 20 ion cannons. i'd say the liberty-class has more firepower due to the majority of turbolaser cannons compared to the home one-class. i'll use the liberty-class for my statement.
one the other hand, there are Victory I-Class SD and Victory II-Class SD. first one has 10 quad turbos, 40 dual turbos and 80 concussion missile tubes. second one has 20 quad turbos, 40 dual turbos and 20 ion cannons. i'll use the second one again, because it's the victory from EaW.
the victory has more weapons but the liberty has better shields. the shields are even stronger than ISD shields, so they should be a lot stronger than the shields of victorys. because of this fact i vote for the MC80. (poor little victory... )
end of my statement.
btw, @ Mav and/or others who answered to my posts in other polls: i don't want to start a discussion about the two ships and their arming/shielding/whatever, this is why i called this one statement. would be nice if you could respect my wish to prevent a discussion about this, i just want the other people to post their opinions.
now i'm finished
Yo In a straight out battle Mon Cal would probably win. However, victory has fighters and BOBMERS! Mon Cal too slow to take out bombers and it dies.
wait, which Victory Class are we talking about here? Victory I class or Victory II Class? Either way i'm going for Mon Cal because Victory Classes are weaker.
I vote star destroyer.
It seems people automaticly equat "Star Destroyer" with the big ships you see in the movies. The Victory-Class Star Destroyer (Or Victory-Class Cruiser I think it's sometimes called) is actually way way smaller then the regular Imperial Star Destroyer.
I think Mon Calamari's are easily a match 1 vs 1 with a true ISD, and against the puny "victory" class, 1 or 2, it should easily win.
I'm not really sure to be honest, but I voted for the Victory SD. Not only firepower, hull and shields strengh are important, but the quality of the crew. That means Empire FTW!
Mon Cal easily, the Victory is out matched here
VSDs are good, but they are majorly outclassed by the sheer shields of the MC80... remember that MC80s could hold off ISDs for a while...

I've heard of the TIE, but a missile boat? A boat on water equipped with missiles? Is that it?
That thing. You play it in the TIE Fighter game. I always loved playing as the TIE Defender, so it gets my vote. Plus, the TIE Defender's weaponry is far superior. It's really no contest, the Missile Boat just lives up to its name by being a base for missiles. It only has one laser cannon.
@2. So? As (for the uptenth time) a veteran of Tie Fighter and X-Wing Alliance, I can say that having more missiles is much better then cannons. The Missile Boat has I believe, 20 standard missiles plus room for 20 addition warheads. Onless you have unlimited ammo on, missile boat trumps the defender.
I honestly think the biggest advantage of the missile boat is as a hit-and-fade capital ship attack platform. If you are a "veteran" of XvT multiplayer, then you'll certainly remember that almost any dogfight devolves into a furball pretty fast. You'll only get one, maybe two, volleys of warheads, and a good pilot will just shoot the warheads down.
I think the missile boat has a lot going for it (its speed is frankly incredible), but specifically based on the game mechanics of XWing vs. TIE Fighter, I'd definitely give the edge to the TIE Defender. In an in-universe scenario? It'd be more of a toss-up, since you don't really see a lot of the "shooting-down-missiles" thing you see all the time in games (there also don't seem to be the countermeasures available in the games).
i say TIE Defender. it has better arming for dogfights (4 laser cannons, 2 ion cannons, 2 warhead launchers, while the missile boat has 1 laser cannon, 2 concussion missile launchers and 2 projectile launchers) and is faster and more maneuverable.
So, now I know what a Missile Boat is. Quite an overkill if you ask me. That thing is mostly a n artificial bee hive on it's own. I think my "boat" is with the "Mobile Bee Hive"
hehe. Get it? "Boat?" ... ... anyone? ... ...*groan* forget it.
Anyways, when are we gonna have character versus?
Keep in mind, though - the Missile Boat has a lower cruising speed, but it's a lot faster at top speed than the Defender is (it's got a mechanic that allows it to double its speed for short periods of time). It's got pretty much anything outstripped in the warhead category, too - it can carries something on the order of 80 missiles at once, which is ten times what a Defender can carry.
If you go to http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Missile_Boat, you'll read that a missile boat was created as a countermeasure against rogue imperial officer Demetrius Zaarins' TIE Defenders. So I think one on one, Gun Boat.
gunboat = big missiles big missiles= EPIC WIN
TIE defender is pretty much a high tech fancy jet, missiles are solid and relible and blast anything short of a star frigate out of the sky.
Missile Boat DEFINITLY
TIE Defender rocks!!!
@9 and 10. Gunboat is actually different then the missileboat.
Still a solid ship, and the inspiration for the missileboat, but no match for a defender.
I think the Gunboat was my second favorite craft in that game. It felt like a precursor to the TIE Defender in almost all aspects.
I voted Missile Boat (just to be in the minority) but I love both ships so much; the TIE Defender is so versatile and effective at just about any role you can give a starfighter, and the Missile Boat is so effective at dealing with anything as long as it has warheads to spare.
Well, as it says on Wookieepedia, the Missle Boat was created specifically to destroy TIE Defenders, which it apparently excelled at. My vote is for the Missle Boat because of the fact.
this sounds like empire at war. but, tie defender. i like their shape and skills.
The Missile Boat was designed to fight the Tie Defender. This was in response to the treachery of Admiral Zaarin, who took the majority of the Empire's Tie Defenders with him. A common tactic Missile Boat pilots used against Tie Defenders was to get them in their sights, hinder their speed and maneuverability with a miniature tractor beam, and annihilate them with a few of the forty(!) missiles it carried.
A Tie Defender was still a dangerous adversary, but the Missile Boat often emerged victorious in dogfights. My money's on the Missile Boat.
