Re: Empire or Rebellion?

Empire.


Reason? Because empires have technology, power, will, something to fight for and someone to fight for. They probably have great training in gunfights as they are very sophisticated most of the time whereas with a rebellion they just want to bring down the empire and want to follow their own rules. Without rules, without some kind of dictatorship, and empire is likely to fall. Rebellions can be sophisticated with training troops but come on you can't beat technology with old fashioned training.

Re: Empire or Rebellion?

I was thinking of starwars as I typed my reply, so it's all good.

I don't ever read the "games" section of the forum anyway.

Re: Empire or Rebellion?

Empires by their nature require expansion to not crumble, and then over extension is inevitable.
An empire is powerful and brings high sophistication (I have mentioned before that its up for debate weather this is good or bad) but its demise is inevitable.

Also training can far out weigh technology. The two most important factors in winning a war are aggression and resolve.
Aggression (Blitzkrieg is the perfect example of success from aggression) will win from the enemies inability to react.
Resolve sounds like its the same but its not in these terms: resolve to die where you stand.
these two factors in an enemy who has no fear, no retreat and no recourse. They will press, they will advance, they will not be denied.
The only way to win over these factors is attrition.

Re: Empire or Rebellion?

I don't know if you ever saw Fox One's app to join KoR, but it had a pretty good Star Wars reference... viewtopic.php?f=24&t=767&p=9607&hilit=seek+an+audience#p9607

Personally if we're playing Star Wars Battlefront, they're pretty evenly matched.

I must say that I prefer the rebels, the empire is really fucked up if you read the literature... wonder how the number of rebels compare to the number of willing troops...

As far as dictators go.. http://img.gawkerassets.com/img/182h4jp ... iginal.jpg

I wonder how many people would die in a hypothetical empire...

Re: Empire or Rebellion?

I have to agree, I'd side with the Rebellion. Let's just say, there's a reason there's so many of them rebelling.
The Empire was oppressive when it was in power. Much like the countries that Nazi Germany occupied during World War 2, the Empire conquered planets and taxed their trade, established strict regulations, etc.

Re: Empire or Rebellion?

Yes, but this is the subject of the rebellion, or the empire. Not the New Republic.
I like the Rebellion better, because the Empire is very corrupt and evil.
Plus, it's too mainstream :P

I've been worrying
- that my time is a little unclear
I've been worrying
- that I'm losing the ones I hold dear
I've been worrying
- that we all
- - live our lives
- - - in the confines of fear
