  1. Star Wars: Squadron A Deep Dive "Oh god, here he goes again." Asteroid Field Vortex I don't know much about this asteroid field vortex, but it looks absolutely stunning. I expect some playable areas from the campaign story to find itself in the 5v5 Star Fighter Dogfight. Standard Imperial Design Hangar Bay Its fairly obvious by the design and the ships within that this is your typical Imperial Hangar bay. What peaks my interest is the scale, the positioning and lack of the ships own hull visible from the hangar bay. As you can see from the image below, additional hull should be completely visible. However, it can't be an Arquitens-class Light/Command Cruiser as they are not big enough to have hangars of this scale. Even if slightly modified in length. It is unclear but highly likely the hangar perspective would be facing forward, so I'm interested to see what vessels hangar perspective we see within the Official reveal trailer. It is very unlikely that this is Admiral Raddus considering his death in rogue one, and that this looks nothing like him. I highly believe that this was an unintentional overlook as there is a lot to see in the trailer. The individual is most notably, Admiral Gial Ackbar. And oh boy I love to see it. The glorious High Definition view of the one and only Destroyer of Destroyers. The Battleship of the New Republic Fleet. Starhawk-Class Battleship (Mk. I) I've waited a long time to see this vessel in action. I was very disappointed to find it didn't make an appearance in any of the new trilogy films. However, this vessel is a New Republic battleship made out of salvaged Imperial-Class Star Destroyers. It's purpose was to be more powerful than Imperial Star Destroyers. Three such vessels saw action during the Battle of Jakku, one of which brought down an Executor-Class Star Dreadnought 'Ravager' with forward facing six very powerful tractor beam projectors. Bringing Counselor Gallius Rax's Super Star Destroyer down with it on its crash course for Jakku. Unknown Tanker Starship In the background you have a better view of an unknown ship, well at least to me. I believe the vessel serves the purpose of refueling or transporting some sort of gas. Possibly Tibana gas. I'm not certain if its Imperial considering the same location less than 5 seconds later is a New Republic construction yard. 181st Imperial Fighter Wing The legends fighter squadron would be an amazing sight to see completely returned. It's likely, but its members unlikely. Considering their definite visual differences. Unidentified Cargo Hauler/Fueling Starship As you can see in the image above, there are quite a few of these very peculiar in design starships. One can only guess their purpose between Cargo or Fuel contains being hauled along. Nothing really of note but it could also just be a refueling station. It doesn't look like it is meant to be mobile. Light Orbital Construction Yard The planet certainly gives that Coruscant feel, but watching the scene closely it's giving me doubts. Mainly because of the atmosphere colour seen from space but it is most likely Coruscant considering its lack of visual appearance within New Disney canon. The Station on the left I believe is a orbital construction yard or repair yard. Most likely for small scaled ships. It is unclear whether its Imperial or New Republic, if this is indeed Coruscant. It will most likely be Imperial, before the New Republic were able to "liberate" the planet. Yes. ISB. I love ISB. However, the ISB holdout on Coruscant wasn't one of assignment, its something they felt obliged to do as it was the Imperial Capital. Many of Coruscants forces departed to Gallius Rax's calling, those loyal to ISB which was a considerable amount stayed behind to defend the Empires capital from the traitorous Rebel Alliance, the "New Republic". This is the end of my breakdown of a breakdown & the official reveal trailer, for now anyways.
  2. Best of luck to you Archer, was good while it lasted. I'll be sure to hide some hybrid Imperial/Rebel logos around the place.
  3. A valid point is made, I have always had it in my mind about what can be done to well... Reduce the role of Dio from being so overpowered without removing things from its actual loadout. The firearms you actually see him carry (obviously not including the taser) are things that are given to the role through either the Extra Weapon perk in the perk tree or point shop weapons. Some of the concept ideas I had for having the role nerfed without removing weapons or abilities is putting in ground rules. Ground rules is a good start, but its not necessarily the weapons alone (the player hit box is the primary issue), player collisions are normal, model doesn't actually move downward when the player crouches. The class has cloak for the reason of being able to infiltrate, its not really a good infiltrator droid otherwise because of Gmod limitations and that people would probably meta game seeing him if he's near the roof. It's meant to be much smaller, being able to fit into two hands, however the damn thing is huge on the server. It has a lot of equipment to either match or be equivalent to its lore perspective. Trust me, if it lost any features the role would become pointless. An issue of people constantly leaving the role because it wasn't as exciting. Granted its overpowered and ground rules can be put in place such as "No shooting while cloaked" or "Don't use point shop / skill tree weapons while cloaked". The role doesn't really get good weapons as itself so it relies on point shop weapons to actually make it better. I didn't enforce rules earlier because I thought about other cloaking personnel using their weapons / PS & Skill tree weapons while cloaked. CompForce can really do a number on you when cloaked with their base weapons. However I'm interested to hear what you guys have in mind into potentially balancing the role without actually removing anything from its loadout.
  4. Timothy Zahn like story telling. PTSD of the Rise of Skywalker... "It's just a feeling". Xalrich is a Jedi confirmed. Order 66 was an inside job. What about the Sand People. When do you believe you will finish the story? When do I believe I would get around to writing up mine? Who knows...
  5. @Xavier The 7th Fleet Initiative is no longer in use. I can't remember all of the reasons why.
  6. Fleet Admiral Wombat, Admiral Kassius Konstantine. Not to worry, both of your ships are in safe hands. Going to miss you randomly popping in on the channels late nights. Good bye Wombat, best wishes to you and good luck with Year 12.
  7. You mean the one I sent you ;p The one Jman sent me? I think things have come full circle. I ultimately think Jman has told everyone otherwise @Ragetank
  8. You miss understand, I'm just making the point that my Trailer being the Official one is true blood :p
  9. There will be no +1 from me. However I do have things to bring up in regards to your actions. This part follows the video that was shared throughout a few or more discords. The Bounty Hunter discord wasn't the only place you shared / posted the video. And I don't believe those two discords were alone in receiving the video shared / posted by you. I know for certain that the video was also posted by you in the Imperial Security Bureau discord. However not entirely certain on this part, I don't believe it was put as a spoiler either. In either case putting it as a spoiler doesn't nullify anything. Posting it was the wrong thing to do regardless of where and when its done. It is extremely offensive and sickening to see videos like this shared and inappropriate for sharing to members of the Imperial Gaming community. This part follows the events done after your ban. Granted this part has no relevance to contributing to your ban itself. However after your ban, myself and others weren't particularly pleased at the time, that you with initial ownership access, had deleted a discord server which had effort put into it in order to bring together other members of the community who play specific games. More specifically the initial Empire at War discord server.
  10. I mean, should have given the post a different title more relevant to the topic so I would have known. Also IGN always hijack trailers and repost them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  11. Hello There The Best trailers are those which want you to see more by the end of it. Pausing the video at every scene I found of interest. There are some references, especially to some comic releases relevant to certain characters from other shows.
  12. I agree with both Rivers and Wombat here. The current state of point gain is fine as it is, my only dis-likening is that some of the F3 Menu weapons have been significantly changed to the point that it's not worth the 1.5 Million Points and 30K Credits. The biggest offender of poor cost is the Scatter Shotgun, sure its extremely good and was indeed extremely overpowered. But with its current state I don't believe its anywhere near as much as its worth both by credits and points. There are a multiple ways of earning points, not all are known to the new players of the community. The best way of earning points so far is entering the lottery constantly. However I don't believe there are many ways of earning credits. Weapon Statistics Scatter Shotgun: Current - 1,500,000 Points Current - 30,000 Credits Recommended - 1,500,000 - 375,000 (Difference - 25% of 1.5 Million) Total: 1,125,000 Points Recommended - 30,000 - 5000 (Difference - 16.5% {Rounded} of 30 Thousand) Total: 25,000 Credits Magazine Capacity: 6 Reserve Rounds: N/A (Originally 500-600) Recharge Time: 30-45 Seconds (Last Known Recharge Time) I don't disagree with the changes made to the Scatter Shotgun, yes it was indeed overpowered. But I feel as though it may be a bit too expensive for its worth at this point. If anything I'd suggest the costs that I recommended above, its not too drastic of a change and from my opinion its not too easy to obtain.
  13. Logs for yesterday are accessible just not to Senior Moderators and below. However the logs are being looked into in regards to confirming your story. I'm sure with reasonable proof and explanation the ban will be reduced if not removed on the decision of those in charge of overseeing ban appeals.
  14. Was literally talking to two Senior Moderators about this application, we saw the name jack guessed it might have been you. It got dismissed for miss matching SteamID's but then I noticed the first ban line SteamID matches.
  15. In regards to this, I'm unsure which other staff in any online were available. Probably none because I think that might have been the second ticket made about the RDM case and that others were stacking. As I said I initially responded to yours before the crash and I had no way of speaking to you as you had already disconnected. Around ten - fifteen minutes later or sometime after one of my other sits which took a while, the server crashed as I was reviewing the logs again. After the server started back up, which probably took around ten to fifteen minutes, I started to connect and loaded in when pre-chaching was around 55-65% checked tab to see if you were on the server, in which you weren't. Yes you would have been able to voice your opinion in the matter if you were present, but the time between when I handled the sit and the time the ban was actually made was long enough. However this ban appeal gives you the opportunity to explain what happened in full. Logs of this sort are inaccessible to me, as this had occurred yesterday. You will need management to double check your connection times & kill logs. And possibly damage logs for instances of other troopers shooting you. If players are causing problems like this, it can be handled in two ways. Its totally dependent, such as SK/RT handle it or Staff do. In this instance, I know it seems like staff were unavailable, I'm not sure because I was initially AFK. But an attempt to contact Staff or using roleplay comms to say that you're being attacked by other troopers. I'm unable to remember who exactly made the staff ticket about you killing troopers. Yes, the punishment would have been different after your side of the story was said. But with your absence and seemingly disconnecting from the server not too long after and no attempted return yesterday it looked completely like you had committed RDMx4 and disconnected. However if Management or the Administrators are able to come across yesterdays logs, I'm sure a reasonable conclusion will come from this. After reading your explanation and if your story is able to be confirmed by any member of the Administration or Management team I am willing to support a removal of the ban. I'd also like to advise editing the ban appeal to include the details you stated in your reply.
  16. I initially responded to your ticket before a server crash. I believe it was the second time the ticket had appeared seeing as though I was initially AFK or Semi-AFK at the time. (Working on a spreadsheet) Seeing that you had already disconnected according to logs about a few minutes after. I spent around five to ten minutes reviewing the logs a few times. Both Kill logs and connection logs, not only at that time I had to respond to other tickets that were appearing due to unavailable staff. Seeing as though you had already disconnected I put the ticket about you randomly killing others on hold. In fact I had to deal with another RDM case. After I wish finished with that case I went back for a final review of logs, I like to double and even triple check certain things. According to logs you had first connected about an hour earlier than the incident I responded to, after checking logs for all kills made by you. Logs showed me that you apparently killed someone and a few minutes later disconnected and then reconnected not too long after that. Approximately six minutes. After reconnecting, nothing much happened with you for a about an hour until within a very short span of time around a minute. You had killed four troopers including the one or two who made an RDM ticket regarding the matter. Your initial ban would have been 3 days, however because you had disconnected not too long after I added another day on top of that for Disconnecting to avoid punishment. I didn't believe you had any other reason to disconnect seeing as earlier, shown in logs, you had killed a trooper and shortly after disconnected and reconnected about six minutes after. I'm sure you're able to wait four days for the ban to pass. Upon your return be sure to go through the server rules and try to gain a better understanding of the rules. This way you can better yourself for the future to prevent potential incidents such as this. I also concur with what Cure has stated.
  17. Prepare to be disappointed by lore. All be, it says the weaponized versions were made, and that some were outfitted by the Alliance to Restore the Republic (Rebellion) with incendiary bombs to counter 'The Sickness' Bio Weapons Project I71A 'Death Troopers'. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/HWK-290_freighter

    I have refreshed the post, and it seems you are still missing a lot of the essential details.

I've always loved Star Wars lore, from Old Republic to the First Order even. Being able to see how the Star Wars Galaxy expands and follow the stories of many unique characters over the eras is something I enjoy from playing Star Wars related games or reading / listening through many books & audiobooks by one of my favourite authors for Star Wars, Timothy Zahn. Anything else you'd like to add?: Best of luck to those who entered the draw and a thanks to Splonter for providing many with an opportunity to enjoy the recent addition to Star Wars Games. In addition, I just really feel like it would be an excellent pass for a good peaceful break One of my favourite tributes to the 501st Legion by HFP.
