    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    I love how Ashley is using the Star Wars Blog to basically campaign for more Clone Wars. In a way. But still! The irony!

    Also, we need to somehow convince those crazy facebook people who hate on Ahsoka for no reason to vote for her!

    And do incognito tabs.

    A lot of incognito tabs.

    And vote Count Dooku as well.

    Always vote for the person you know will lose. That way they can wipe out the strong characters and end up dying to weaker characters when we don't vote for them :p

    It's so strange to me that I used to absolutely hate the character of Ahsoka Tano, but now I'm desperate to see more of her. Real credit to Ashley and Dave Filoni & Co.

    I know. I didn't like Ahsoka at first but now I love her! That really is stuff for me. Usually when I hate a character, nothing will change that opinion.

    If Ahsoka wins it, it will help spread the word of The Clone Wars tv series and show Disney "Oh hey! Look! A new fan favorite. Maybe we should pump out some more Clone Wars stuff. It's obvious there is money to be made there."

    Doesn't it make more sense to have Sidious win? That makes Ahsoka the only non-OT character!

    I just wish they had put TCW Anakin V PT Anakin in the poll as well just to see who would win out of that :p

    I was voting for Dooku since he is prequel/clone wars specific... which pushes the cause along in a way.

    Its okay if they lose... its the quantity of votes that is important. Of course an Ahsoka victory against Chewie would be amazing... but a tough one.

    I'm not liking how the facebook post of Ahsoka vs Chewie is going [face_nail_biting]

    I'm gonna go vote. In incognito tabs. For like an hour.

    This is also a great way to get the survey to pop up... but don't take it every time. Might make your IP suspect.

    It's just the regular site survey, and it is random. It's popped up for me several times, though I dunno if a popup blocker catches it...

    Im sorry but Ahsoka stands no chance. it makes no sense. jango only got 22% against boba... the dude who stands around, says nothing, and dies like a punk. i cant see ahsoka beating chewie, not even close. although i will be supporting her. i feel like most SW fans are just trolls i mean who votes boba over jango and chewie over ahsoka... it defies all logic

    We don't know how Boba Fett dies yet. ;)

    It's quite simple why this happens. The OT is liked much more than the PT, and their characters tend to win things like this. Just because you disagree hardly makes it illogical.

    George lucas flat out says that he would have made bobas death scene different if he had known he would be a fan favorite. so according to GL he died.

    also it is illogicall. chewbacca stands there san says nothing in english hardly does anything. ahsoka does soo much in TCW series and is a great character. same goes for jango vs boba. jango was a main character in aotc and does a lot in the film. while in the films boba just stands there and goes down like a punk the 1 time he fights. it defies all logic

    Lucas may have created the universe, but he's no longer the mastermind, and he doesn't govern my thoughts. That he is adamant it's stupid to bring Boba Fett back, but bringing Maul back is fine and dandy smacks of hypocrisy.

    I don't know how to explain this to you, but Chewie carries more weight as a character than Ahsoka. Most of the OT characters do, and it's a feeling that I do find hard to articulate into words.

    Okay maul survived because he's a SITH LORD... something not to be taken lightly. while boba was a random loser who couldnt fight (only in the OT, as a kid in TCW he was a pretty good fighter)

    of course you can't describe why chewbacca is better cause hes not, period. as i said its illogical. people just vote OT characters cause its the "cool" thing to do mesa thinks

    A Sith Lord? :p

    Eh, nobody could fight in the OT. Just a side effect of choreography becoming much more advanced in modern films.

    NO. People don't like OT characters more because it's the "hip" thing to do. The OT is generally more liked, the "general consensus" is that it is better. An individual opinion, mine or yours, does not change this. Review and user scores are higher for the OT on every review site I've ever encountered. The films are just "generally" considered of higher quality.

    Chewbacca is Han's companion. He's funny, yet armed with a badass crossbow. And yeah, he seems to carry that "weight" that I cannot quite explain, whilst Ahsoka does not (I'm a big Ahsoka fan though!).

    Surely I can be a fan of more than one character? I'm a fan of Star Wars, after all.

    Oh, and all those times I've defended Ahsoka's development, they don't matter, I'm just not a fan of the character now apparently. :rolleyes:

    Sure you can, im a fan of chewie... but no where near ahsoka by a long shot. I dont see how chewie is more likeable than ahsoka he does little to nothing and no offense but if chewie > ahsoka that leads me to question how much you really supposedly like ahsoka.

    I like Ahsoka and I like Chewbacca. I voted for Ahsoka because of the Save thing, but Chewbacca still brings a big smile to my face, the big walking carpet!

    And quite frankly, it's not within your prerogative to question how much jones likes Ahsoka. He likes both characters, but he prefers one over the other. How can that be possible?...

    Ahsoka is more interesting cause her character has an arc. She started as something and ended as something else. Chewbacca basically started out as a dog and ended as a dog.

    I'm trying to figure out how preference for another character insults people who like Ahsoka.
