    Ep9 is gonna tank. Everyone is boycotting. Look what happened to the theme park. Disney sucks. Swgoh does not need this trash. Well at least if they don't want to lose money.

    Lol okay.

    There are a lot of young people who actually like the new trilogy. And I know, someone’s gonna respond saying something like “kids these days”, but they have every right to like whatever they want. If a bunch of long term extreme Star Wars fans boycott every Star Wars movie from now on, that leaves room for fresh fans to be inspired, and is probably healthy for the franchise. I have nothing against those fans who love the OT and don’t like the sequel trilogy, but it would be nice if they didn’t spend their time bashing new Star Wars movies on the internet. If you don’t like them, then boycott away.

    This.

    I'm a newer generation and I dislike the OT just based off of the fact that the sound and quality was outdated

    Maybe you and a handful of people you chat to regularly online are boycotting. That does not equate to "everyone". Indeed, this is the first I've even seen any mention of any boycott and I have absolutely no intention of joining in.
    I like Episodes VII and VIII; they are GOOD films. And I fully expect IX will be, too.
  • No, but maybe older characters we are already known to. Just sequel stuff for the hype

    Sequel and hype don't go hand in hand.

    I not gonna boycott it as well. Despite all it's fIaws I actually liked ep8 more than ep7 as it has some original ideas at least, while ep7 is just a copycat of ep4.

    Also I don't expect the promotion of ep9 starting soon as CG made it clear that they're not finished with the Clone Wars era.

    Can’t we say that about most deaths in Star Wars?

    Here are a few:

    Darth Vader - Died saving his son
    Emperor Palpatine - possibly a Clone and part of his master plan for the Galaxy
    Darth Maul - Died trying to overthrow the Emperor and also make Obi-Wan fail
    Jango Fett - Dumb Luck and plot driven death
    Obi-Wan - Died protecting Luke, his one mission
    Boba Fett - plot driven death Lucas hated that fans loved Boba
    Jabba the Hutt - Leia is a bad ****
    General Grievous - over confident that he could dispatch Obi-Wan rather than protect his chest
    Count Dooku - Palps wanted him dead as part of the master plan
    Mace Windu - plot driven / made no sense
    Padme Amidala - stupid death for advanced medicine to have some die in child birth
    Captain Phasma - we don’t know her fate yet
  • They literally said they will bring new things (even if only characters) about EP9 after clone wars stuff. Just wait till we are closer, as releasing or talking about stuff can be a spoiler for the movie

    Poor decision making? How so? He turned possibly the most powerful Jedi in 50 years against his teacher, causing him to denounce the force and go into hiding. Also causing the death of Han Solo. All without getting off his chair. That’s baller.

    Palpatine made himself king of the entire galaxy while also not getting out of his chair.

    Snoke was incompetent and a rather boring character really.

    Boring, yes. But he did basically eliminate 3 of the OG heroes and get the resistance numbers down to about 7 people. He deserves some credit for eliminating that terrorist threat of the Resistance.

    Kind of.... its gonna take that long or longer to farm them up to a usable level without using the apk modifier to hack the game.

    Yep, Palpatine couldnt kill Han or Luke. Snoke took care of both through Kylo Ren.

    The problem with Snoke is that we currently know so little about him that there's no way they can really give him any decent powers.
    What does he do except sit around and pontificate, other than link two people's minds together?
    So while a "link" power between two characters (any time either character takes damage, the other one takes the same amount, maybe?) would be cool ... what else can you do with him? We need to know more about him first and that won't happen until Ep IX or, if there are no flashbacks in it, even later than that ...

    CG has done far more with far less. You have to go to books for some of the Rebels.

    No kidding. Like Wat Tambor did anything but sit there in the prequels...or the executioner troopers who just stood there and thought about doing something before the ship blew up, or the non-existant tusken shaman...

    More stunning is 4 months out and they haven't really started promoting the movie at all. They started advertising/hyping 7 over a year out, 8 was 6+ months...

    But CG won't be able to do anything at all 9 related until given permission which won't be coming until maybe november. Don't need a third rey, we've only got 2 lukes, we don't need 3 kylo's, etc..I guess we don't need 5 han's either, but we have 'em.

    Next things for them to hype are clone wars return and the Mandolorian which will be up first on the streaming thing which they'll press hard and heavy.

    Not boycotting, but not excited at this point either. Definitely not on the radar for a day one viewing, maybe day 4-5. And that's saying a lot since i say 1, 2, 3, R0, 7, 8 and even Solo day 1....RJ killed the desire.

    Too bad for you. RJ made me SW hyped all over again.

    I’m expecting the biggest Ep9 content to be FO and Resistance Cap Ships. God, I hope so, at least. Holdo is long overdue, and General Hux should eventually make an in-game appearance. Though, we might get a mk III EP, depending on his role.

    With two capital ships on the horizon (well, one of them already in-game), more capital ships from Episode 9 is probably what we could expect the least.

    I disagree. We have to less ships they could introduce into the game. Maybe when EP9 comes out. But with releasing the Clonewars Capital ships we should be busy for a while. I mean the game has a long road to go in the future.

    I rather hope we get a few chars from TFA or TLJ we havent gotten yet. A Snoke event would be a nice calayst for getting us prepared for the future EP9 stuff. And they give us a spark of hype with it.

    I'm torn. I'm annoyed at disney for the last jedi but they will get my money for disney+ for mandolorian and marvel content.

    I wont go see episode 9 unless people I trust tell me its great.

    If this Rhian Johnson trilogy goes ahead though there is no chance in hell I will see that.

    Well, yes, but that might have something to do with the fact that Andy Serkis is pretty awesome.

    Holdos dead so it wouldn't make sense to make her a capital ship for EP IX

    @Rake6
    I just quoted this so I can find this thread in a couple months when episode nine tops force awakens sales. People went apesh*t when they just heard a laugh they THOUGHT was palpatine in a 2 minute trailer for episode 9.

    And you’re the definition of toxic fandom , last jedi was great , it’s just a vocal minority who gets themselves wound up over it. They just tell each other that everyone hates it until they believe it. If you need a source re read this thread.

    And to your point about Disney parks. Are you referring to the fact that Disney parks were down 3% over the ( still unfinished) summer ? Ouch three percent , I recon that’s about how many fans were upset about last jedi too. The park sold less seasonal passes this year purposely to control overcrowding BECAUSE they added the Star Wars park and didn’t want to hurt everyone’s general experience with even long waits. Get some trustworthy sources and take off the tin foil hat. Star Wars is doing just fine.

    Not really after EP IX there really isnt much to do that is worth watching.

    Same with marvel. After phase 5 the MCU will die.
