Well, this is gonna be another blowout... Coruscanta'denn! Mhi vode an.

hell yeah! :D

 #6 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 08:47
AT-AT can blow the tar out of a AT-TE. Besides that there is the AT-ST as well as a number of other cool walkers. #1. Empire #2. CIS (AATs, SBDs and dekas, oh yah!) #3. Republic scum #4. Rebel scum

 #7 - Posted by: Maveritchell (Staff) on 02-18-2009 at 09:08
Once again, this will prove to be a poll that proves the triumph of style over substance.

 #8 - @ Ty294 - Posted by: vivaEspain (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 09:18
Republic is NOT scum, rebels and maybe CIS are the scum. Anyway I voted for Empire, thinking on the Force Unleashed stormtroopers. -vivaEspaña :beer:

 #9 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 09:24
I have to agree with Ty294, ATATs destroy all, Boom ! Zap ! Ka-pow ! :confused:

 #10 - Posted by: eaegftw (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 09:45
No other forces have hardly ANY diversity in their forces besides the Alliance. Clones vs. Droids vs. Stormtroopers (all of which are human). Please, the thing that made Star Wars so great in the first place was all the different alien creatures. Go REBELS!

 #11 - Posted by: Gold_Leader (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 09:51
Oh, definitely the Republic! All the different clone legions, AT-TEs, and everything! The Republic beats all!

 #12 - Posted by: verp (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 09:51
two words: Republic Commandos.

 #13 - Posted by: battlefrontlover92 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 09:52
even though i said empire for space, i have to say republic for ground. They have special classes like ARC troopers that pwn everyone else :p What do you expect from clones of Jango Fett??? :rock:

 #14 - Posted by: c0mmander_bacara (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 10:08
yea GAR by far the have AT-TE, AT-HE, AT-RT, AT-AT (yes they had AT-ATs) gunships, arc's, clones, commandos, jedis and more so GAR :rock::rock::rock:

 #15 - 12 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 10:11
Yah, unfortunatly the Empire didn't make proper use of Commandos. Although I recently read that Delta Squad became Imperial Commandos. (That would make a good sequel. Delta Squad as Imperial Commandos.) And vivaEspain, your right. The clone troopers aren't scum, the jedi are!}>}>}>

 #16 - @ty294 - Posted by: lesovikk1 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 10:21
@ty294 they wont make a game because the author of the books is making the rc books contiue to imperial commando (fall 2009) GAR no other choice. better weps, better transports, cool troops(rc and arc) so there is no choice. (might be because 2 and 3 have better grapics but the empire seams to be going back in time poo weps, screwed up armour....did plalps atually bother to give them good weps.....he would of pwned the galaxy with better armour and weps....think about it.....)

 #17 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 11:03
It's cause the movies with the GCW era are older then the CW era movies. If they would have been made in the right order than the Stormtroopers would have better guns (Maybe). Besides, the AT-AT is the best ground weapon in the galaxy, period!

 #18 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 12:04
Yes the Rebels, and the Republic are both goody-goodies. Therefore The Empire reigns supreme ! DIE EWOKS DIE ! ! !

 #19 - Posted by: GangsterJawa (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 12:08
Sorry #9, Remember what killed an AT-AT singlehandedly in the Battle of Hoth? Hmmm, let's see. Oh yes, it was a Jedi! Now hmmm, who has the Jedi? Well, the Rebels had a few, but, oh yeah! it was the GR! Jedi Master FTW!!! ;)

 #20 - Posted by: EraOfDesann (Staff) on 02-18-2009 at 12:16
If I'd known it was going to be this one-sided I probably wouldn't have made this poll. Anyway, I voted CIS.

 #21 - Posted by: swwar (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 13:03

 #22 - Posted by: HyperShadowTheHedgehog (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 14:15
i agree with #6. even rebel forces will be superior though to the cis and republic considering they had the tech advantage of time passing (time passes=more technological upgrades)

 #23 - Posted by: BHF_Breakdown (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 15:11
For the rebellion!! I agree with #10, the rebels are so diverse..and so mcuh cooler in my opinion, they are true underdogs. I used to think the Republic was cool until a few month ago, probably becaue all I ever see are clone wars mods or republic stuff.. :P

 #24 - @maveritchell and HyperShadowTheHedgehog and some other arguments - Posted by: Darth_Palpatine (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 16:12
Maveritchell: this says the "coolest" ground forces, not the most powerful. I agree, the imperial ground troops can blow the snot out of any, or all, of the three factions, but clone troopers look cooler than imperial troopers. That's why they win this poll. And that's why your argument of how this is a "style over substance" poll is kind of weird, because that's exactly what it's designed to be. Hypershadow: Maybe, but think about this. Have you seen the rebel weapons dealing more damage or being more effective than weapons during the republic? Also, even if the rebels were technologically superior, even the most technologically advanced super-soldier would eventually be brought down with strength of numbers. As for those people who say that the empire has worse armor, let's do the blaster test. Neither republic or empire armor has the ability to stop a blaster bolt.

 #25 - ??????? - Posted by: Vice_Admiral_Svar (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 18:53
Empire??? I mean come on! Style put aside, let's see....the clones armed with the DC-15, among other things, which is very accurate, and at maximum power settings can blast a 1/2 metre hole in a contrete wall. Versus the E-11, which was horribly inaccurate and range from stun to kill. Plus, the GAR had not only the AT series walkers, but the SPHA series walkers, which came in several flavours, from the most common artillery (SPHA-T) to anti-air, vehicle, and others. They were essentially self-containted assault beasts, they had smaller cannons for personal defense, and could carry a number of clones in their holds. So, Republic pwns all!!!!!!!!!!

 #26 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 18:55
Ok if we're doing coolest: #1. CIS #2. Empire #3. Republic #4. Rebels And hey Mav, for the next poll you should ask this: "If you were in Star Wars what side would you be on?"

 #27 - atte versus atat - Posted by: yukisuna (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 00:43
the republic could acctually win vs an at-at! bet most of you have seen the movies, because, there you see som laat's carrying atte's, so, the republic would win because they can drop off the atte behind the atat, so... yaaaaayyyy republic, and to you, "ty294" NAH-NAH!:D

 #28 - Posted by: 41Tommo (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 02:39
Republic have teh best units, and i think tactics too, cis...well, they got a ton of dumb droids, some smart and some nice vechiles, rebels... Pretty cool but ground vechiles arnt very good, empire, they just use brute force and hav lots'a big things. Republic FTW

 #29 - sorry 27 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 06:23
But an AT-AA would just blow it out of the sky. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/All_Terrain_Anti-Aircraft

 #30 - Posted by: Anakin12 (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 11:45
Clonetroopers because I love their Skins and Armor

 #31 - Posted by: Anakin12 (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 11:46
The CIS is too man Droids the Empire is boring and the Rebels are a futuristic American Revelution Soldiers

 #32 - Posted by: dillonsemrad (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 15:02
Again as voting on wether who has the coolest star fleet i will have to go with the Republic, i like their skins. Because the empire and their white and grey outfits gets boring, NEEDS COLOR! You guys are still not giving the rebels the credit they deserve, that would be my second choise, because they have a more diverse race, different that just humans. :rock:

 #33 - Posted by: Corbec_UST (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 16:27
As much has I find the Rebellion the best faction for for the best all around soldiers (Ill take a T1-B over an AT-ST anyday... yes I used that right, im talking about the tank from Force Commander) and really like the Rebel Troopers.... NOTHING is cooler then those Clone Troopers so even though I voted Rebel in the last poll, this time my vote goes Clone 1# Republic 2# Rebel 3# Imperial 4# CIS

 #34 - Posted by: Fluffy_the_RC (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 18:30
Reps all teh way. You guys aren't thinking BEYOND the movies! Reps can have jetpacks, they have the best background for troops, most color schemes, COOLEST color schemes, and multiple types of armor. CIS is alright, but is ugly-*** in comparison, Empire is too bland, and then the rebels take my place for #2 since they are teh most realistic. 1: Reps 2: Rebs 3: CIS 4: Imps

 #35 - you want to read this comment... - Posted by: Dean_Winchester (Member) on 02-19-2009 at 20:35
Empire: The Stormtrooper without the stormtrooper, our world would suck. seriously, the stormtrooper is an iconic image, a fierce visage, millions of numbers, and they are a standard trooper, seriously, watch the movies again, they aren't as bad as made out to be, most of it is exaggeration CIS: good example of failed potential, rewind your memory to before the prequel movies, i say Droid Army, you think metallic killing machines of death, sweeping across a flaming plain.... ok maybe not but i do, and then we get skinny robots with bad aim.... HOW THE HELL DOES A ROBOT MISS!!! Republic: eh their pretty cool, i do wish they hadn't used all CGI for the movies, maybe some real clone troopers for a scene or two? Rebels: they won the war. and they did it with second-hand equipment thats skill right there

 #36 - @24, 26 - Posted by: Maveritchell (Staff) on 02-19-2009 at 20:59
24) My contention is that "cool" in reference to this poll is determined the same way a jaybird looks for something to pick up - whatever's shiniest. I don't personally equate bigger and louder and more over-the-top with "cool." 26) Hey no. I try not make polls where I can guess what the results are going to be beforehand.

 #37 - Posted by: vegati (Member) on 02-20-2009 at 16:26
I voted CIS because they have a wide variety of droids so you don't get bored with them as easily. (though I usually play as Republic)

 #38 - Posted by: vegati (Member) on 02-20-2009 at 16:34
@10 Since when were droids human? Sorry for double post

 #39 - Posted by: Lt_Wheeler (Member) on 02-20-2009 at 18:54
Number 35,have you ever thought that mabey the droids are aiming but the weapons just miss?think about SMGs and Machine guns and the republic commando gun,they dont always hit even when you aim.I voted CIS because or SBDs,droidekas,and the hellfire droid (my absolute favorite ground unit)

 #40 - Posted by: fiodis (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 09:33
Rebels win. They have a random assortment of various vehicles, weapons, and personell that somehow appeals ot me. A lot of people like the uniform, color-schemed legions of the GAR or Empire or CIS. I like the Rebels because they [i]don't[/i] have that.

 #41 - Posted by: StupidJedi (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 11:44
definitely Republic. CIS droids arent very smart. Stormtroopers got beat by ewoks using rocks and stuff. Rebels are mostly commandos and spies.

 #42 - Posted by: masterjoseph7 (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 13:02
Definitely the Republic! :rock:

 #43 - @41 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 16:41
The stormtroopers didn't get beat by the ewoks. They got beat by George Lucas.

 #44 - Posted by: Darth_Rameses (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 17:33
lol Ty so true. I like how everyone who voted rebs says "they're more diverse" not necesarilly true. The Empire has/had countless legions of ALL races willing to lay down their lives for the Empire (or forced to heehee) for example, the empire actually has more bothans working for them than the rebels (willingly or not) fear is an excellent motivator and if you've played the Imperial Campaign for EaW you know the Emperor puts some serious smackdown on some idiotic bothans who snitched to the rebels. Anywho, I said Empire for THEIR diversity, in terms of both the fact that every single race in the galaxy that fights, has atleast some of their population fighting for the empire and all their different units, ie: dark troopers (look at the diversity right there, 3 phases of droids, each highly specialized) various scouts, they have commandos to y'know (I think someone mentioned delta squad) and the ARC troopers are still in service, atleast a lot of them (a few defected to rebs) and I also like the variety of weapons they have, i mean everyone else what weapons do they have? blasters, explosives or an "incinerator" (which is pretty cool but looks more like mud) whereas the emps have a friekin gun that shoots lightning REAL LIGHTNING! (sorry couldn't resist : P) and they have a lot of cool vehicles to ie: TIE DEFENDER (ftw) and LANCET WING (ftw)

 #45 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-21-2009 at 20:29
Bravo! Besides the humans that made up the bulk of the Imperial army there was tons of mercanaries and bounty hunters who worked for them. Also after Endor the Empire began excepting other speices into their ranks. Dark Jedi such as Desann were of non-human speices. And if anyone dares to say Jedi are cooler than Sith (or Dark Jedi), they're crazy.
