    His showings in the animated micro series alone make him a wrecking machine, what he does after that in the comics is jaw dropping at times.

    They only kill him by shooting him into a star and even then it's possible he survived.

    Breakdowns!! [face_dancing]

    There's still plenty of good value on the board, so time is still there for rankings to improve....or fall [face_mischief]

    Evil Incarnate - General Grievous, Aolin Astarte, Morit Astarte
    -Lots of lightsabers considering there's no Jedi or Sith here :p Grievous is a beast and can singlehandedly carry battles, but I'm not quite sold on the Astartes, particularly if they're split. Though that might just be unfamiliarity with them (the wook is rather incomplete for them). Just be prepared to argue for them during matches. Middle of the road right now, but lots of potential upside.

    BookExogorth - Pre Vizsla, Shimrra Jamaane, Baze Malbus
    -Firepower out the wazoo; everyone you have here packs a serious punch. Cohesion, on the other hand......Making a team of individual powerhouses works well, right up until it doesn't. Just keep that in mind, but overall very dangerous looking team.

    Cubman - Cad Bane, Bossk, Dengar
    -Tough looking bounty hunter squad- I like it. Bane (wait, didn't you just have the Darth version?) might have been a few picks early, but hey, new draft and power levels are still being ironed out. Bossk I do feel was a bit early, but to me Dengar makes up for it. You're right in the sweet spot of mixing power with cohesion; stay strong for 7 more rounds and you're in business.

    Yodaminch - Han Solo, Chewbacca, Captain Rex
    -I think this might end up as one of those teams that live on in draft lore; "it's a good team, but not as awesome as minch's in the first draft" has a reasonable chance of being an actual breakdown in a few drafts (like saber leader's in the SFD). Han + Chewie is godly and Rex has experience (and talent) that few can match. Team to beat imo.

    s65horsey - R2-D2, Wedge Antilles, Wes Janson
    -So I'm skeptical if R2 can actually stand up against most of these other picks, similar for Wedge and Wes actually. They have some good ground combat showings, but not a lot of them, and they're not known for packing as much heat as some of these other picks. All that is for them unprepped. Prepped? This team skyrockets to a whole 'nother level. All 3 of your picks are insanely good at strategizing on short notice and few resources. The problem is, you don't get that many preps :p Just make it to teams and they'll do the rest.

    heels - Jango Fett, Thrawn, Zam Wesell
    -I like it, but don't love it. It's just lacking that 'wow-factor' to me. Jango is great, Thrawn is so-so individually but good for teams, Zam is kinda ok (though it's been ages since I've played Bounty Hunter)- I feel you could have let her slip a round or two and gotten someone better now before they got taken. Still, a solid foundation for a team, just need to outdraft people in the next few rounds.

    Darkslayer - Boba Fett, Embo, Fives
    -Imo, Boba was a bit of a steal considering where you picked. Embo is good and works well with Boba. Fives.... I'm a bit shaky on him, not that he's bad, but that there were/are other options available that are stronger. Still, you're in a good spot going forward- just be on the lookout for stronger picks you can snag (and don't get bumped!)

    RX_Sith - PROXY, D'harhan, Tsavong Lah
    -Like Exogorth's team, lots of power little cohesion. I'm (apparently) a fair bit higher on PROXY than Inty is, so your fate may lie with Furio ;). Problem is, a droid impersonating a Jeedai is probably very high on Lah's list of things he doesn't like. Same for a guy that augmented himself with a cannon. Your goal is "get 6 wins" and taking powerful guys like you are is the way to do that.

    Point Given - Durge, Iden Versio, Jariah Syn
    -Another "just power picks" teams! Though you've managed to avoid the negative cohesion problems that some of the previous ones have. Durge is fantastic and can swing battles just by himself. Iden looks like a solid pickup and Jariah has a wide variety of weapons to tackle opponents with. Gonna be a difficult team to beat (unlike your Jedi Draft team [face_whistling])

    Jedi Knight Fett - HK-47, Canderous Ordo, Carth Onasi
    -The "all KotOR" teams rarely do well in the Jedi Draft, and they might not do well here either. I'm not seeing either 47 or Canderous as legitimate first-rounders. They're very good, but I'm not sure they measure up to some of the other top picks. Carth was early, way early- he doesn't have too much going for him and there were plenty of stronger picks available (but you'd have to sacrifice your theme). There's potential to turn it around, but you're gonna need some absolute steals in the upcoming rounds.

    Mikaboshi - IG-88, BT-1, Mandalore the (whichever)
    -Scary looking team (seriously, I'd hate to see any of them in a dark alley). Lots of firepower. Not too much else to say- I expect to see this team late into the game.

    Jordan1Kenobi - Chirrut, Sabine, Jace Malcom
    -Not quite sure how to feel about this team: it's good, but is it good enough? Use the long breaks between your picks to hunt for value on the draft board- that's the best way put you solidly into the "contender" category. Finn might be a bit on the weaker side- he doesn't have too many good showings to his credit, but I'm liking the rest.

    Evil Incarnate - General Grievous, Aolin Astarte, Morit Astarte

    I thought Grievious was easily the best pick in the draft considering his training and showings against
    multiple Force weilding opponents. As for the next two picks, after skimming info I feel like they'll need
    some arguing as well. I like the direction though as lightsabre weilders trumped together. Fighting Vader is
    always a feat in and of itself. GRADE B+

    BookExogorth - Pre Vizsla, Shimrra Jamaane, Baze Malbus

    Considering what PG's team is doing in the Jedi Draft and the unpredictability of this one so far,
    going with this type of line up works for me, for now. Any feats against Luke are great, Vizla is a
    snake and a warrior, deadly, and Baze is beast. Nice work. GRADE A-

    Cubman - Cad Bane, Bossk, Dengar

    These guys are greasy good. Bane went early for me as you could have gone with one Boba Fett and
    that woud have made Bossk and Dengar all the more dangerous. Either way good start. GRADE B

    Yodaminch - Han Solo, Chewbacca, Captain Rex

    Your knowledge shows here Minch. I love your judgements and now your choices. Everyone here is
    awesome and has everything in terms of ability, strength, leadership, and guts. GRADE A

    s65horsey - R2-D2, Wedge Antilles, Wes Janson

    If this was Galaxy of Heroes, great Rebel team. :p As of now, not sure. Lots of leadership and tactics but you need
    the brute strength now IMO. GRADE C+

    heels - Jango Fett, Thrawn, Zam Wesell

    Balance, that's what this team is. Brains, brawn, and bounty hunter goodies. I like this so far. There's an
    obvious pick that you need here and I'm sure you already thought of it. I'm high on Thrawn as an individual too, but
    I feel like you'll have to argue for him. GRADE B+

    Darkslayer - Boba Fett, Embo, Fives

    The first two picks were great, then you went and drafted the crazy guy. :p Seriously though, We know Fett is
    practical and he'll work with Fives, who at his peak is a tough dude. I like this team too. GRADE B

    RX_Sith - PROXY, D'harhan, Tsavong Lah

    This seems to be the new norm, best available. As individuals these picks are good. As a group you're in
    trouble. PROXY from what we've seen is an asset for me. Does he come with lightsabres? if yes, good pick. @DarkEagle
    All in all D'harhan and Tsavong Lah are great individual talents. GRADE B-

    Point Given - Durge, Iden Versio, Jariah Syn

    The original "who cares about cohesion" artist. Durge is a steal where you got him as previously noted and your
    other two picks are fighters and survivors plain and simple. GRADE B

    Jedi Knight Fett - HK-47, Canderous Ordo, Carth Onasi

    I love KOTOR, but let's face it, these guys were all buffed by being around Revan, especially Carth. However,
    I think that HK and Canderous have quality feats in their lives. I think Canderous especially considering
    the Mandalorian Wars and then his attempt at bringing up Clan Ordo after working with Revan. I hated Carth :p
    He's a vet of war too though so there is some value there. GRADE C

    Mikaboshi - IG-88, BT-1, Mandalore the Indominatable

    Another Draft vet showing his quality sense and judgement. Not a lot of cohesion but tons of power, skill,
    and tactics. GRADE B+

    Jordan1Kenobi - Chirrut, Sabine, Jace Malcom

    This is group of crafty warriors and as individuals they'll thrive IMO. I see a possible trade working out here.
    But DE's right. You need more pieces to make this go. GRADE C+
