    That isn't the right team shown for Darth Vader Presents.

    Sorry, correct team is Darth Vader, Turr Phennir, Darth Caedus, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Tesar Sebayne, Shira Brie, Asajj Ventress, Krasov Hara

    Still going with that, however.

    Wedge Antilles, Wes Janson, Corran Horn, Asyr Sei'lar, Kasan Moor, Anj Dahl, Bror Jace, Lensi
    vs
    Soontir Fel, Pash Cracken, Keyan Farlander, Jake Farrell, Rookie One, Dash Rendar, Lando Calrissian, Plourr Ilo

    Fel < Wedge
    Pash > Wes
    Keyan < Corran
    Jake > Asyr
    Rookie One > Kasan
    Dash <= Anj
    Lando > Bror
    Plourr > Lensi

    My team is nearly as cohesive as the other team because Lando ties everyone together. Lando is also a master at survival and a good strategist along with Fel. 5 of my pilots are flat out better than their counterparts and while I agree that Wedge and Corran are a dynamic duo to take on I think that my team could come up with a better strategy revolving around trickery and dashing good looks. Pash is also the son of the Republic's intelligence agent so he would have all the information necessary to defeat the other guys.

    Fel < Wedge
    Pash > Wes
    Keyan < Corran
    Jake < Asyr
    Rookie One < Kasan
    Dash =< Anj
    Lando >= Bror
    Plourr > Lensi

    While both teams have good cohesion, mine has an edge here. My squad has more multi-pilot groupings (wedge, corran, asyr, bror all flew together; wedge, wes, kasan) lending more overall cohesion to the squad. Don't get me wrong, 7gents+ doesn't have bad cohesion at all, but I just don't see the same extensive group flying experience. Down the line, it looks fairly even in terms of experience and skill; maybe a slight advantage to me (videogame characters are annoying :p)? Overall, though, I think Can't Take wins this, mostly because I feel they'll function better as a squadron together as opposed to matched pairings of pilots.

    This is an extremely close one. In the end though, I think DarkEagle's team is a bit more cohesive, which gives him the slightest of edges. Going with his team.

    Ok, so Moor -- while good -- is mostly reputation. We hear she's "the best of the best," but she's only a lieutenant. TIE pilots are promoted to captain after surviving a year. So clearly she's not terribly experienced, though apparently quite talented.

    Donos, though, is show, not tell. We see exactly what he goes through and survives. We see him go through the Zsinj campaigns, fighting in the shadow of SSDs, and advancing to become a Rogue through hard work rather than a nice simple ion blast from a Y-wing. Donos has the verifiable talent and the known experience to take this one handily.
