We don't need context for it, it's pretty simple. The clone saying that Vader ragdolled two ships wasn't necessarily there when said event (or lack of said event) took place. It's fairly obvious what Khem is saying here. 

Az summed it up. We have zero context. It's like saying Galen yanked down that star destroyer, when there was heavy context involved.


Mace claims that he, along with several other council members could not do it. I don't care how much he underestimates himself, but a feat such as that (especially given cross-era scaling via superiority) shouldn't be vastly beyond him (and a host of others) if he's as high as you've claimed (> KFV).

Mate, he claims within the same feat that five Yodas only might be able to do it. He's pretty clearly a crappy source. 

@Mr Dinky Can you stop spamming that? We saw it the first time. I've already pointed out flaws in half of it.

Its circuitous innards exposed, the combat vibroblade rested on a low table, alongside a small tool kit. Electrodriver in hand, Maul was working feverishly on the knife’s ultrasonic vibration generator, intent on overriding the built-in arrestor to supply the blade with greater slashing power. If he wasn’t permitted to use the Force, then he would use everything short of it to satisfy the rage inside him; to gut every living thing he encountered during the coming Gora solo. Bathe in the blood he would shed, feast on warm flesh… Merely imagining it set his fingers trembling, and abruptly the tool slipped from its tenuous hold in the socket and stabbed deeply into the palm of his opposite hand, opening a small wound and bursting the dam of his pent-up emotion. Maul’s clenched right hand slammed down on the table, shattering its surface, and the vibroblade took flight, nearly impaling itself in his head. Straightening, he bared his filed teeth and tensed his body, close to loosing a scream that would have brought the barracks down around him.

Star Wars: Restraint

The text seems to be from a third person perspective, not Maul's own. "...that would have brought the barracks down around him" seems to convey what would factually happen, not what Maul thinks would happen.

In the same book where Mace says he can’t lift a train, Anakin spends pages running from one of those small-ass spider droids. Luceno’s a lot more grounded in his portrayal of the Force, and I would personally (partially) discount a lot of the character showings in favour of more favourable feats.

The people who wrote the source material don't matter. What they intended when they wrote it shouldn't be considered. Thanks, very cool!

Cool, I was looking for something with Cal, Maul, Dooku, or Kenobi, let me know in the SS thread or PM if that works. Thanks.

Author intent is always relevant if it lines up with continuity and what they've written. Some material, such as The Courtship of Princess Leia, Dark Empire, etc. was written in close collaboration with Lucas, so it of course applies. Luceno's case is not intent, just narrative style. You should learn the difference.

That's not impressive at all. And the guy wasn't thrown "miles" as far as I'm aware.

Kun lifting the Corsair may not even have been done through TK, and even if it was, we have no idea of the amount of effort it took. He could have been sitting in deep meditation for hours to get it above the planet's surface. And as you mention, he was amped by Yavin's nexus regardless.

Nothing you've mentioned remotely proves Kun, Malak, or Revan can collapse a massive barracks.
I mean, you technically can scale Revan off of Nihilus' Ravager feat, but nonetheless it doesn't matter. TK to TP is a stupid comparison, and most of the feats I put far beyond Maul are TP.

Proof Revan scales above Nihilus's Ravager feat?

And if you admit TP to TK is a dumb comparison, do you still maintain Star Forge scaling puts Revan above Maul?

@Azronger There’s a difference between technically being able to and actually doing it. I said that comparing TK to TP was dumb, but the TP feats I’m scaling Revan beyond are things I doubt maul could replicate.

i mean you are just arguing holistics now and if that were the case some characters would be ranked way higher based on holistics alone

I agree - Maul is not that good with TP. However, he is very good with other abilities. So my question remains: do you still maintain Star Forge scaling alone puts KotOR Revan above Maul, combatively?

And you didn't answer my question about Nihilus.

I mean, personally I maintain it, but the general idea here is that I'm not going to win a debate with you on this because you're much, much better than me as a debater. And Nihilus is the Meetra accolade

He's using resurrection I think.
