This is tough, there are a lot of cool fleets, but I think the Galactic Republic are clearly at a win here.

GAR. That simple.

 #4 - THe Empire !! ! ! ! !! ! ! ! ! ! !! ! - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 07:43
Galactic republic ? - You must be joking, for one, how about how massive Star destroyers are? Or the death star? In an all out battle, the Empire would defeat any fleet, If it wasn't for their awful tactics they would still rule the skies... ( I AM NOT CRAZY ) :mad:

 #5 - Posted by: GangsterJawa (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 08:08
Dude... CIS! Invisible Hand and Malevolence FTW!!! Your Imperial Death Star and Star Destroyers would die soon after being deactivated... Bwahahahahahahah!!!

The REP isn't all that much differant then the Empire. Except the Empire has bigger ships (Like the Super Star Destroyer). However I like the Rebels just cause of all the differant ships. One of my favorite games was X-Wing Alliance, and I always loved being hopelessly outnumbered.

 #7 - Rebellion - Posted by: Corbec_UST (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 09:22
At least the Rebellion has shields and weapons that actually do damage... I dont see any TIE fighters or TIE Interceptors firing proton torpedos. In an all out battle the Empire was constantly getting their *** handed to them by the Rebels. How many times have we seen power Star Destroyers getting destroyed by simple X-Wing and Y-Wings. There was a reason why the Rebellion won the war, they simply had the best of everything. (Could have used a few SSDs and more numbers but oh well, they made up for that)

Ya but star wars is only a simple good vs bad[?] story really, the Rebels were obviously going to beat the Empire, like a Second world war film told from the Allies perspective, the Axis forces obviously are not going to win.

 #9 - Posted by: c0mmander_bacara (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 10:22
i still say the GAR by far

 #10 - Empire - Posted by: vivaEspain (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 10:32
I voted for empire. SSDs are so cool... -vivaEspaña:cool:

 #11 - Posted by: Vice_Admiral_Svar (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 12:49
For all of you, remember the Star Destroyer Imperator (later renamed to Imperial) was nearing completion at the end of the Clone Wars, so if the Republic would've stayed around, we'd be seeing Imperial class Star Destroyers painted with red highlights and other cool decals, and thus the Executor class Star Dreadnought would've followed shortly. I voted for the Republic because the Venator is the COOLEST Star Destroyer of them all. Not the biggest by any means, but remember, bigger isn't always better.

 #12 - Posted by: CommanderKing (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 13:22
Definately the Republic. Their fighter class ships are the coolest. i would have voted Rebellion (thats my favorite to play as) but their ships always seemed kinda old and dingy in the movies, like theyve seen lots of action with minimal maintnence whereas the Republics ships seem new and shiny and high-tech.

 #13 - Posted by: fiodis (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 18:55
Agreed. In an all-out battle, Republic would beat Empire, I think. They had [i]clones[/i]. Empire had stormies, which would run out eventually. The Republic had all those resources to build such great ships. It may be the fact that Episode 3's graphics were the best, thus making the Republic seem coolest. But even if Ep3 were filmed the same time as Ep4, I'd still pick the Galactic Republic. Bigger is not better! ;)

 #14 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-11-2009 at 23:13
AAHH ! ! You are all insane. The Empire wins hands down.

 #15 - Posted by: paulskywalker2000 (Member) on 02-12-2009 at 07:11
The Republic starfleet pwns all!:rock: Come on, really? ARC-170s, V-19 Torrents, V-Wings, and Eta-2 Actis Interceptors VS.......TIE Fighters. Yeah, I'm POSITIVE the EMPIRE will win...:rolleyes: Also, as listed before, Republic has Clones. [i]don't try to evade the word censor -Staff[/i] , while Stormtroopers can't hit if their lives depend on it (which they usually do:D) Lastly, Venator-class Star Destroyers just look SO awesome. Even an Acclamator with the red-striped paint job from The Clone Wars looks pretty boss. 2nd best fleet is the CIS. Invisible hand pwns, and Malevolence pwns all ships (bye-byes to Executor with one ion cannon shot!) Nevertheless, REPUBLIC FTW!

 #16 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-12-2009 at 07:49
O.K I admit the Republic looks awesome, but I think through stats rather than the magical fiction of the films. Also... http://www.st-minutiae.com/misc/comparison/comparison_large.png Ignore the other sci-fi ships, even with them look who's biggest... Even if they are under powered, the Super star destroyer could simply land on all the other ships. Anyway, I just like the Empire even though they were brought to their knees by ewoks and a couple of un-happy folk from the out skirts of the universe. :'(:'(:'(

 #17 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-12-2009 at 08:06
One last thing, before this becomes hostile, I have only chosen the Empire, as they are my personal favourite. I have only attempted to explain why... I do understand why most of you have voted for the Republic they would have been my first choice if it wasn't for their goody-goody qualities. (don't shoot me)

 #18 - Posted by: battlefrontlover92 (Member) on 02-12-2009 at 13:43
I voted empire too Super Star Destroyers FTW!!!! :rock:

 #19 - Posted by: star_wars_freak (Member) on 02-12-2009 at 17:20
the empire no question

 #20 - Posted by: MatmanDude (Member) on 02-13-2009 at 08:40
I am a Die Hard Lightside and Rebel player in all Starwars games. However, I kneel to awesomeness and freaking coolness of the Empire's fleet. Star Destroyers and Tie Fighters and THE DEATH STAR... totally pwn.

 #21 - Posted by: eaegftw (Member) on 02-13-2009 at 09:15
One simple word... Executor

 #22 - Posted by: Ty294 (Member) on 02-13-2009 at 12:38
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Eclipse-class_Star_Dreadnought And you thought the SSD was cool?

 #23 - @13 - Posted by: Vice_Admiral_Svar (Member) on 02-13-2009 at 14:11
The Stormtroopers are mostly clones, too.

 #24 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-14-2009 at 06:34
Why is every one revealing that they are hard core Empire fans now, I thought I was the only one left... This brings tears to my eyes, Long live the Empire ! :'(

 #25 - Rebellion - Posted by: BHF_Breakdown (Member) on 02-14-2009 at 12:02
Rebellion has awesome ships!

 #26 - Posted by: HyperShadowTheHedgehog (Member) on 02-14-2009 at 15:25
If you still have Xwing alliance, go into the game files, open a file called shiplist.txt change nonflyable to Flyable (yes, caps matters) in the text next to the super star destroyers I feel that the Empire had the best ships. They were in a time period where the tech was better and were therefore stronger than the CIS and GAR. They were also better than the Rebels (the reason they lost is because of the whole Good>Evil concept)

 #27 - Posted by: Gold_Leader (Member) on 02-14-2009 at 16:08
Mind if I ask, what is GAR?

 #28 - DROIDS - Posted by: Lt_Wheeler (Member) on 02-14-2009 at 20:08
Vulture fighters will rule all!(there are 500 in every cruiser i heard). if every droid hit like Luke Skywalker (and most of them almost do) then there wouldnt be a single republic,empire,or rebel ship within 100,000 miles in less then 30 min.

 #29 - Posted by: Gold_Leader (Member) on 02-14-2009 at 22:16
Sorry dude, but the Republic beat all factions.

 #30 - Posted by: Soveriegn (Member) on 02-15-2009 at 12:06
The Empire could take down the republic, the clone war era republic ships stand no chance against imperial star destroyers and SSDs. The Empire only lost and stormtroopers suck at shooting because of George Lucas, the republic only looks cool because he made them the good guys. But the EMPIRE pwns all.

 #31 - republic! - Posted by: yukisuna (Member) on 02-15-2009 at 23:58
of course i choose the republic! they got both big fleets (not only gray boring) and good fighters!

 #32 - Posted by: yukisuna (Member) on 02-16-2009 at 00:14
hey, it's not sure the empire would have beaten the republic. they got the same massive amount of fighters, capitals, troopers, BUT.... the republic got friends, from very many varying planets, and, they got both more commandos (much more effective than the imperials) and they got many more in both number and effectiveness melee soldiers, easier description, the assassin's.:D so, sovereign, do you really think the shield and tactic-less empire would beat the republic squads? the commandos that atleast work together? the assassins vs the royal guards? i tried, both in space and on felucia death star and mos eisley clone commandos and assassin's vs imperial commandos and royal guard's. on felucia, the commandos just sniped all the imperial commandos, while the assassin's assassinated the RG's. same result on death star, just with less sniping. mos eisley did just say ZIP, and it was over. and, just to tell that i didnt join any of the battle, i did only host a game without internet connection on, and only used free cam. sooooo.... the republic are the best!:rock:

 #33 - Posted by: Soveriegn (Member) on 02-16-2009 at 00:50
Ok Yuk stay focus, were talking about STARFLEETS not ground combat, the ISD is way bigger than a venator and can destroy it with ease. Remeber the Republic only looks cool cause Lucas used that GOOD vs EVIL concept so thats why you saw more republic detail than Imperial detail.

 #34 - Posted by: Vice_Admiral_Svar (Member) on 02-16-2009 at 08:36
Not necessarily, remember the Venator is very tough for her size, not the most powerful ship in the fleet though, but she can certainly take it. And the Victory (lest we forget) is not only a beautiful ship, but was still considered tougher than average, even in the Imperial Fleet. And the Imperial class isn't way bigger, (1606 metres for the Imperial, 1136 for the Venator and 900 for the Victory), just a bit bigger.

I voted GAR Why? They have blue lasers

 #36 - Posted by: UNIT33 (Member) on 02-18-2009 at 06:29
Ahhh, but the Empire have green lasers ! ! ! :eek:
