    Welcome to the battle of the blaster users! The bounty hunters and Force users have had their time to fight, now a group of blaster users will go head to head and duel each other until one comes out victorious.

    I'd say switch Niner for Kal Skirata–Niner was not exactly the center of the series and we didn't see his fighting skills as much as we did the others', especially Skirata's.

    How about adding HK 47 and Canderous Ordo to the list. The KOTOR era could use a few competitors and would add some variety, especially since the current roster feels like it has too many clone troopers.

    HK-47 is a droid, and you'll see next time why I'm not including him. But I will switch Hondo Karr for Canderous Ordo.

    Dash Rendar could, potentially, be another character for the list.

    As much as I hate to eliminate Typho in round one (eyepatch guy is so cool!), Vizsla would take this; he almost took Maul, so Typho would be nothing to him.

    Pre Vizsla, he was able to almost defeat Maul, and he also fought Obi-Wan and Ahsoka who both had to retreat, but we've never seen anything impressive from Typho. I'd put my money on Vizsla winning the entire competition, but I've been wrong for the other two competitions, so I could be wrong.

    Typho did well against Aurra Sing; however, when he faced an actual Sith (Vader), he was easily killed. Pre Vizla was a Mandalorian so his armor would give him a huge advantage and he was able to fight pretty well against Maul.

    I've had a thought...we need to discount Vizsla's use of the darksaber, don't we, since this is the "blaster users" battle? Oh, he'll still win this fight even without it, but I think we need to decide yay or nay on the darksaber for future battle's since it could be the deciding factor, especially if it's a close fight like Vizsla vs. Han.

    Hmm, that's a good thought. What does everyone think? I don't mind if we keep it in or not, along with all of his other weapons and his jet pack, as we were allowed to include Ventress, Cade and Aurra's use of the Force in the battle of the bounty hunters.

    That's understandable but given this is specifically a "blaster" users fight, my vote goes to strictly not allowing his darksaber. Jetpack, flamethrower, wrist blasters, and blade shooters we can keep, though; the darksaber is the only real gamechanger.

    I vote for Pre Vizsla.

    Some persons I would include in the list: Alpha, Ania Solo, Vilmarh Grahrk, Janek Sunber, Talon Karrde, Jahan Cross, Fenn Shysa, Morrigan Corde and Rik Duel.

    My vote goes to Commander Bly. As a Veteran of fierce battles like Salucami and Felucia, he was probably more experienced with war than Tarrful was. As long as he kept his distance, Bly would also be able to negate Tarfful's physical advantage.

    Tarfful, he was the leader of the city of Kachirho, so must've been one of the best Wookiees during his time, and Bly was a Clone Commander, making him one of the best Clone Troopers of his time, but Wookiees are much stronger than Clones. Tarfful should be able to take him out with ease in hand-to-hand combat, it'd just be Bly's blaster he'd have to be wary of, but since Tarfful has a blaster too, I don't see why he wouldn't be able to disarm his weapon and then disarm Bly.

    I will have to put some thought into this one. To me a lot of it comes down to tactics and the terrain they are fighting on. If it is a battle in the trees than Tarful takes this one easily, if it is on barren ground then the advantage shifts to Bly....

    I'll get a vote in later tonight.

    Bardan nails it; it all depends on the terrain. Bly is a skilled, ARC-trained soldier whose armor could probably resist a few shots from Tarfful's long rifle, but if there were trees for the Wookiee to hide in Bly wouldn't have a chance. Thinking about it, Tarrful's lack of armor is a disadvantage in open terrain but Wookiees are very physically resilient and he might even be able to resist a few blaster bolts before he went down. So Tarrful's advantages are his abilities in the trees and natural strength and resilience, while Bly has superior training and technology on his side; the guy could probably use his helmet sensors to find Tarrful, but by the time he did the Wookiee might be in prime sniping position; Wookiee quarrels are infamously explosive so one headshot would likely blow Bly's head clean off, while a chest shot might allow him to survive for at least a little while. Overall it's some major semantics going on here, and I cannot decide who would win this. Due to the number of clones in the battle–and due to the fact that Bly has never been my favorite commander–I will with hesitation give my vote in this to Tarrful.
