    How is Rose annoying? I get if you dont like her or her story arc. But more annoying than Jar Jar? Please enlighten me.

    Less just annoying and more just pointless. Her character and her story went nowhere. We learned almost nothing about her. Her sister with 30 secs of screen time was more interesting. Well, we did learn that it takes less then 8 hours for her to fall in love.
    I disagree. Her character was never meant to be significant for the movie as a whole, but just a turning point for Finn. It was not the best execution, but she actually highlighted what Yoda told to Luke (which was the main lesson of the movie).
    Ironically, Star Wars has always been about the real world. It is reflected in every movie in one way or another, even in the OT. That people don't agree with the message is not a valid reason for hating TLJ (or comparing Rose with Jar Jar).

    Jar jar just said silly things with a silly voice. Rose rams her beliefs and SJW opinions down your throat in the middle of a star wars movie

    I forgot, to you sad sack MRA's, any female character is a "SJW" agenda.

    Oh my god, this isn’t a gender related issue. I am a feminist and I HATE Rose. Why? Not because she’s a woman (I love Rey, Leia, Padme, etc. and I actually liked Holdo), but because she is a terrible character! She is plain bad and it has nothing to do with her gender.

    Why exactly is she a terrible character?

    Her story was motivating Finn to devote himself to the Resistance and in screwing up Leia/Holdo's plan (and getting everyone killed). You guys seem to be conflating "failing" with "going nowhere".

    Nothing like writing 2 good guys that actually make things worse, then have no redemption arc. Finn might have tried to, then she robbed him of that... and again to no consequence or change in the story.

    Sorry you only want your characters to win all the time. I like being surprised in movies.

    She is terrible because she is bland and has no depth to her character. A comparison to her blind faith in the resistance would be a 1940’s Soviet Russia propaganda poster. Also, when Finn asks her if everything feels better after they stampede through the casino and wreck it, she unbuckles the saddle on the horse thing and then says “now it is” like that was what she cared about most. Not the children being tortured, not the flagrant materialism and superficiality of the casino lifestyle, but the horse thing. While animal cruelty is definitely not something I support, that was just plain stupid.

    Or how about the fact that saving the space alpaca “was worth it” when first order was about to blow the resistance out of the sky but yup saving the animal was worth it
  • @Psilosin <- that reminds me of mushrooms. Also , great idea. The one at a time character thing is not great method in my opinion either. But I guess they hope to make each character "must have" . Hopefully there is a way they can figure out how to monetize large releases

    How about giving the community what we want?? GG rework, multi bronzium pulls, better mods management, you know, things people have been BEGGING for.
  • Waiting for the valentine "hold on to the one you love" connections to Revan, Jango and GG rework threads

    Well at the death scene when mace killed Jango you can see when Boba picks up his mask he whispers to himself "hold on to what you love."

  • I think the porgs were probably more annoying. They nested in the falcon like rats

    Like tribbles.
  • If it is indeed *cough* Rose then that's why your login toons are finn and poe, they have 0 to do with the FOE

    “1299 Crystals
    No purchase limit”

    That’s a relief! I was worried that they were going to put a purchase limit on the “1299 crystals for five shards” deal.

    Lol.
  • The lack of love for FO is ridiculous. No mass Dispeller and still way too slow even with all Zetas to compete in arena... sad sad
  • Lol they're going to make Rose so good you'll have to have her just watch lol.... Rose>meta 2018 !!!! Or they are trolling and it's zeta Palpatine we love him let's hold on to him with more power!!!! But seriously it's Rose lol if she brings exposes I'm game for that.

    We’re still getting Snoke and Praetorian Guard eventually. It’s just a matter of time (and probably money).
  • maybe she'll be the first rebel and resistance character since TLJ treats them the same

    Oh god I forgot they did that in this movie. I now remember someone saying “rebel scum”. A month out and I’m still disappointed and every day it seems something else makes it worse. I thought that would stop when I found out that BB-8 said “I’ve got a bad feeling about this”.

    Um, I don't know if you hadn't noticed, but neither Snoke nor his guards are Rebels. We've had the obligatory 1 DS character for the year, so now we'll be moving quickly on to 30 Rebel releases and a couple other LS characters.

    So the movie went out of their way to call resistance Rebels. Happened many times throughout the movie. When are resistance characters getting the Rebel tag?
  • If "Hold on" is Admiral Holdo . . . I'm all in. Her final scene was epic and I'd like to see more happen with the fleets. The FO really warrants a Capital Ship but I'll take what I can get.
  • How is Rose annoying? I get if you dont like her or her story arc. But more annoying than Jar Jar? Please enlighten me.

    yeah I agree I didn't hate her - she was just there - nothing. The only thing that I thought was odd was the kiss at the end - I didn't get the buildup for that at all. I didn't sense a merging chemistry there - felt very forced. Other than that she was just a character in a SW movie I was watching. Jar Jar made me want to set the screen on fire :) That voice and the childishness.

    I do fear though that she will be super OP as a character - they're going to ram her down our faces Wiggs / Chaze style. Decent at best characters in the whole SW Universe that will be way better than we'd expect while others rot like hot garbage :)
  • I would love Holdo. Capital ship for resistance should mean that hux and a capital ship are also on the way. Also, she was annoying at times, but went out in an awesome way. Not a great character, but a good one, and she is certainly far above Rose.

    yes I'm wondering if later do the Res toons all get changed to Rebels? They were self-identifying and the FO was also calling them Rebels. Was surprising.

    This why my second wife left me.
  • @CG_Kozispoon, Is First Order Executioner supposed to inflict Deathmark or prevent enemy revives? I think it might be better against meta, and can be terrifying, also.
