Poe Dameron.

Recommended Posts

This is true. Poe has and proves his status in the movie. We know he is a cut above from the opening scrawl and have this confirmed by the villain. Then he goes and walks the walk.

Other than surviving both Death Stars, Wedges reputation and ability is all old EU really. He doesn't do anything to earn ace status beyond survive in the films.

 

In the battle of Endor he ends up behind a Tie Interceptor. In an X-wing. Pretty **** hard.

He recks face hard at endor in the movie.  He outskills an absurd number of ties.

Needs his PS upped to 10.  That is all.

Nah, still a rookie compared to Cheese Wedge 

But like, Wedge didn't actually do anything impressive in the movies. He shot a couple TIE Fighters and threw some torpedoes at a big giant still object with no defenses whatsoever.

Poe on the other hand did that and then some.

 

Minor ep 7 spoiler

The very first time we actually see Poe fly a ship, he gets shot down by ordnance. PS8 is fine.

That was Finn's fault!

yeah, that DEFINITELY wasn't his fault! the **** star destroyed had Ordnance Crew, Poe dodged like 3 volleys until Finn distracted him, dealing him a stress token and he couldn't perform an evade action.

Poe needs to pick any card he wants from the deck when he deals damage.  Not just to the hull either.  For each point of damage Poe deals he picks a damage card from the deck and deals it to the target, face up.

 

He also never runs out of torpedoes.

 

Also, I don't know which t-70 pilot was named "Yolo Ziff" but we need that in this game too.

Based on the scene at Moz's casino, it seems that his ability should read: "When Poe Dameron deals the last point of damage to a ship, he may immediately make an additional attack with his primary weapon."

This isn't because Wedge isn't a good pilot so much as it is the film techniques differed so much back then and they couldn't make it as impressive as they can now

Poe Dameron had a better special effects budget and the best korean animators of all time.

 

Poe Dameron also had more than five minutes of screentime.

 

Darth Vader was an ace pilot in A New Hope and the movie showed it despite the 1977 special effects. Wedge was just a guy who kept inexplicably surviving.

I still say Wedge and Luke should have swapped pilot abilities. Wedge survives, Luke hits tiny, hard to hit targets.

Are you seriously using meta/real world limitations to argue the capability of pilot skill?

For real, are you..?

Basically.

Now, to his credit... He DID fly a T-65 X-Wing through the Death Star II and THAT AIN'T EASY..!

But to his discredit Lando did it better. Honestly, I think Lando should be PS8.

Because he's sure as hell better than most pilots out there. **** that man can fly..! I mean, not only did he fly it through the Death Star II, but he aced bigtime in the fleet battle! He was a huge target, but outflew countless TIE Fighters.

Hell, honestly... I sustain that he's equal if not better than Han. Han's good, but is he REALLY better than Lando..?

To be fair, Poe's not checked out on the TIE/fo.  The fact that he figured out the startup sequence in the amount of time he did, flew through the superstructure of a star destroyer on his first flight and then juked three missiles speaks volumes to his skill.  His gunner's excitability notwithstanding.

I doubt the TIE/fo mass produced ship is significantly harder to fly that a regular TIE fighter. It's probably easier since it can handle the stress of maneuvers better.

 

X-wing pilots get a chance to fly TIEs in simulators, if I'm remembering X-wing the PC game correctly. X-wing the PC game is canon to reality.

 

As far as Wedge surviving, that's the mark of a veteran.

Poe Dameron did all those fancy maneuvers with the help of his droid.

R2-D2 was murdered by Darth Vader before Luke made his shot down the exhaust port.

 

Is Jar Jar Binks dead by now at least?
