    Again, if this were Dark Tide, I'd agree with you. By the TUF, Jaina is just a good as leader as either of them, and Jag and Jaina are actually better leaders than Kyp. Say what you want about Kyp maturing, a lot of people still have issues with him, which doesn't make him the best leader for this draft.



    edit: I'd put her under Tycho also, and then she's about equivalent with Gavin, Tiin, Cracken, and Stele, who I look at as the second tier.

    Good point. She may be a little below Gavin as well, but all the others I see as a draw. She really has mad skills ;)

    I personally see Gavin and Stele as higher than Jaina. But I'd love to see you people debate it and change my mind. ;)

    I'm sure I'd be able to debate Gavin, but I wouldn't be able to debate Stele because I really don't know much about him ;) :p never played TIE Fighter :(

    IMO she's directly under the uber group of Luke, Anakin, Wedge, Vader, Fel.

    Well, I don't know if she's that close to them, but she's close enough that you didn't make a horrible pick there. It really all depends on the type of sqaud you want to build, and Jaina has plenty of guys and gals in the lower rounds that fit very nicely with her.

    Say what you want about Kyp maturing, a lot of people still have issues with him, which doesn't make him the best leader for this draft.

    Again, it depends on who you put around him. I still maintain that Kyp was the absolute best leader for my specific sqaud last draft. No one else could have led those guys better. However, I'm in no way saying that he's the best overall leader in the draft. Not now, not ever, but when you get down to the end of the first round, he's usually the best leadership choice left.

    I, of course, will refrain from any opinions or remarks until the end of each draft round, where I'll grade the picks.

    Officially, anyway. I'll make some silly comments from time to time. Such as, Jaina Solo may not be as good as Wedge, but she's hotter. :p Bwaha


    if you go with the latter you'll score points with Jello.

    I don't know, I just don't think we've seen that much that is that spectacular out of Gavin. Yes, he survived as a Rogue for a long time, and yes, he became Rogue leader. But what can we point at and say "This shows his skills to a high, high degree." Jaina we have her insane run at Lando's Folly, which just shows incredible piloting skills. We have her, as a new recruit, surviving fighting at Dantooine, while HALF of the expierenced Rogues died(at this point new pilots weren't being hurled into the fray). In Star by Star we see her vape ,at least, four skips without breaking a sweat, and at the final battle of Mon Calamari she survives and fight in an X-wing with two engines blown off and numerous other damages. Throw in her force ability and I think Gavin would be hard pressed to take her.

    As for Stele...well, I have a slight bias against video game pilots...I know I shouldn't, but it's there. :p

    Well it depends on when you put the end of Anakin Skywalker...

    Then again there's always fear to "help" cohesiveness.

    Either way with Anakin, you'll most likely have a cohesion problem.
