Why is Zero Command suddenly so popular? I seem to recall when there were votes it got basically no support.
I was on vacation from the forums during that poll, otherwise I'd have voted for Zero Command over the Authority. Having been reading the later Bantam EU novels recently it appears Harrsk was the larger threat in the years between Shadow Hand and Reunification, as he had gained the support of many of the Imperial holdouts.
ummmmmmm.... Zero Command wasn't on the poll and they aren't in the game and we will only see them represented in Reunification man.They were a big threat though.
Wasn't a poll, this is the topic you're referring to.And Thrawn, they will be in the game, and it'll even say "Zero Command" when you kill them, you just can't play as them.
I prefer Harrsk the Hipster (he was Warlording before it was cool) to Delvardus the Tarkin Dynasty Failure. But ah well.
Wrong, Grand Admiral Zaarin was the ORIGINAL rogue warlord. He did it BEFORE Palpatine died making him the true pioneer.You've probably never heard of him.(#HipsterZaarin)
Well I suppose you could classify him as one. He did try to establish his own Empire so I can buy that.
With Steele already in as a hero, clearly there's already been an inclusion of the TIE Fighter story arc into the mod's universe. Possibly some kind of a "Thrawn's career" GC, where you progress Thrawn through ranks/eras and get upgraded ships for him as you go, a la Ackbar and Solo? After Zaarin's defeat, I suppose he could move into building up the Empire of the Hand, but I could see potential issues with mixing/matching different Legends sources depending on whether the TIE Fighter "we await word from Endor" ending and Thrawn not returning until 5 years later would create a conflict or not.
All of the TIE Fighter stuff is pre-Endor, so we don't touch that at all. We would like to have GCs that focus more on the unknown regions and the buildup of the EotH, but that alone will be a ton of work, even without extending the timeline backwards and making an era to cover the Galactic Civil War as well.
Zaarin, for example, was nothing to do with EotH; he was someone Thrawn fought in his capacity as an Imperial, it was an Empire-Rebel-Zaarin conflict, and part of the Galactic Civil War. Doing the Galactic Civil War requires a fair number of different units, heroes, and planets not already in the mod, and which can't really carry over to the other parts of the mod. The initial plans for 2.2 were to do that, however we ultimately decided we're far better going for more depth in what we cover and improving upon that/those assets instead of trying to spread it out even further and ultimately ending up with a lower level of quality.
