This faction belongs to a Story Group Canon mod, not one based on Legends timeline.
The Clone Wars cartoon and every part of it is part of the Legends canon.
If you're ever unsure whether something counts as a legitimate source for the mod, the best place to check is the Essential Guide to Warfare.
Really, I probably spend more time responding to comments about people trying to tell us the cartoon isn't part of Legends than I actually spent trying to suss out where we'd need to make adjustments.
Sorry to be that one more guy, but I'm sure you understand that a good part of Thrawn's Revenge community are fans of the now Legends timeline which was torn apart by TCW like never before, in number and scale. That's why it's a delicate subject, not to mention the poor quality of the show. For a good part of fans it's good to think TCW is not part of that universe as Lucasfilm/Disney is too lazy and don't care of such details to decide (for them the Legends is dead and they even cut publication rights in some countries).
TCW has been one of Lucasfilm's most successful projects.
It single handedly has helped reduce the amount of vitriol the Prequels got on the Internet post-Mr Plinkett reviews.
I like some parts of the old Legends Clone Wars, but as Corey as said, it was always a very inconsistent part of Star Wars even before TCW.
TCW streamlined the timeline to make it accessible to a wide audience. I've seen many examples of people who became fans of Legends material because of TCW.
it is why my younger brother is now interested in the expanded universe
I like it a lot more than the 2d one.
...which didn’t treat the audience like children, instead using a sophisticated array of cinematic technique to convey complex themes without being blatant.
The show originally came out on Cartoon Network, and no matter what examples one can put forth, the primary and dominant market of that network is young kids and teenagers.
Adults watching can understand the bigger picture of the narratives, and big time Star Wars fans can enjoy the fan service the show provided. In that way it was a success.
there was very little interest in Star Wars as a result.
Compare the Original Movies, the Prequel Movies, the cartoon CW and the animated TCW. The former three can be watched by child and yet the adult can found something for them in it. Each screen of Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars had strenght, not just filler to go up to 20 min.Are you kidding ?Big picture with battle of no more than 50 participants, Ashoka seeking her lightsaber, Gungan diplomacy, zombies, Godzilla-like, Obi-Wan faking his death or Dooku and ANakin tied together by a band of pirates ?Mandalorian pacifists is no fan service, it's fan insult... And so on with Vos, Ventress, Barriss, Aura Sing, the Night sisters,...Sure if we live in a world where you need a movie every year (even if the quality suffers from that) to people have interest in something Ahah I noticed I got a -2 today for telling my view of TCW, I feel some get butthurt by a reality check on it
I don't understand your angle here at all.The show originally came out on Cartoon Network, and no matter what examples one can put forth, the primary and dominant market of that network is young kids and teenagers. It has to be slightly simplified for that market, easy stories and plenty of explosions. Even still though, I 'm not expecting every major star wars story to have the same complexity and depth of a Timothy Zahn novel. TCW hit that perfect in-between in it's later seasons. It was a show that both kids and adults could enjoy. Kids see the clones and the lightsabers and enjoy the action and jokes. Adults watching can understand the bigger picture of the narratives, and big time Star Wars fans can enjoy the fan service the show provided. In that way it was a success.
One thing here If I can have a saying, and this is for something a bit back.I DON'T think that a show has to be dummed down and have lots of explosions because it is a kids show.Kids are not dumb, they are inexperienced, and I actually think that a cartoon that is fun, but have a deeper side is actually great. Just look at Gravity Falls for example.My little sister got me into GF and I had a blast from it, and I loved to discuss the things behind it with both my sis and my friends whom I got into watching the show.And that's why I started talking about philosophy and analysis with my sister who was about nothing but girly stuff before. Never underestimate the power of a well written cartoon that doesn't treat it's fans as dumb, but as intelligent.
ah, sorry for the misunderstanding then. I get it like this.Language barriers. XDI admit it though that I liked the Clone Wars cartoons as well(both 2d and 3d). The 2d was something I watched as a kid, so it had that going for it next to a solid story and characters. I felt grievous was his best there.I haven't watched TCW until recently, but I kinda liked it. Granted I went into it by kniowing that it didn't really care about much established lore before it, so I kinda took the whole thing to an experimental level and considered it an alt-star wars universe.You know, like what if russia never went communist and such.In this what if Anakin got a Padawan, and this makes it absolutely enjoyable.
