What are your core lines of thinking that you have invested the most into and defined your debating careers? Give two to five.

For example, mine are probably:

(1) Revan is more powerful than Darth Vader.
(2) Darth Malak is more powerful than Exar Kun.
(3) Anakin Skywalker is on par with Yoda.
(4) Anakin Skywaker is more powerful than Darth Vader.
(5) Starkiller is more powerful than Darth Vader.

Dooku is closer to Yoda than to Maul.

Ventress is Obi-Wan’s superior.

Exar Kun is still the GOAT.

Mine are Sheev’s apprentices (maybe not Vader) are all closer in power to Sheev that to Bane, by a lot.
That feats are absolutely worthless, unless they are force user versus force user based.
That feats cannot retcon quotes if there is a plausible debunk.
And that Noa Briqualon is god.

I'm rather new to debating but I'll put down some of my beliefs that I anticipate will be a focus of mine.

1. Knightfall Vader>RotS Sidious/Yoda
2. Revan is Yoda Tier
3. Darth Vader~Obi Wan

Yoda wasn't overpowered at the end or combatively overmatched by Sidious.

Quotes from sources pertaining to fights, other than novels and film production notes should be disregarded as they are often contradictory depending on the author, are simplified summaries that often exclude the context, out-of-date, and often just plain wrong.

Force barriers that can be mentally activated from the start of the duel are practically non-existent in the PT. It's clear that you have to be in a guard position to activate a barrier and if you are in the middle of an attacking sequence you are vunerable to counterattck.

Sheev being the most powerful dark sider has been the first position I ever argued for over 5 years ago and have maintained that stance and continued to make arguments for it ever since.

Idk. I guess:

1. Anakin is Yoda's superior.

2. Starkiller is far stronger than Darth Vader.

3. Dooku is (reasonably) close to Yoda.

Character specific:

1. Maul being close to RotJ Vader and Dooku (though not necessarily superior as a whole)
2. Sidious being the most powerful mortal dark side practitioner

To be honest, I've covered so many at different points in time. Typically, I support characters who are lowballed within a certain group. I also work to break down characters who are wanked.

Technical stuff/argument construction:

3. Using Chee/Lucas as central pieces of evidence when constructing arguments for relevant characters/debates
4. Making sure to examine accolades closely for potential flaws. For example, accolades/statements provided in universe

My most important rule:

5. Being open to shifting any of my positions provided that an excellent argument is provided which I cannot counter. A good example of this is when Ant and others changed my mind and got me to put RotS Anakin>RotJ Vader

Obi Wan>Dooku

Yoda>>>Dooku

Starkiller is insanely powerful but a shit character

The ROTS tier 8's are close to the later Banite Sith than Bane

Caedus and Vader are underrated

KOTOR Revan is underrated

1.Jacen is more powerful than any of Sheev's apprentices.

2.Luke is the most powerful non entity character in the mythos.

3.Pre-ROTS Windu is sub Dooku.

4.Vader is vastly beneath the PT titans and closer to Maul/Kenobi than Dooku.

5.TOR scaling is broken.

6.Valkorion is vastly above Yoda/ROTS Sids/KF Vader but a fair bit beneath DE Sids and roughly comparable to TFU Sids.

7.NJO characters are generally underrated barring a few exceptions.

Probably missing a few things but that's all that comes to me immediately.

Not really foundational, just some issues in general I have with Star Wars and what I believe in.

Quotes binding character placements long before they're even created is retarded. Same with powers.

Anakin is an absolute mess of quotes.

Things are taken far too literally far too often in the case of quotes.

Unless someone is addressed specifically, it's unlikely things bind them to a quote - even less so if they are a complete nobody. Expecting a novel writer for example to account for every character in canon is a foolhardy notion.

Modern Bioware doesn't know how up the ante without going overboard, nor do they care of the implications of what they write.

Darkstaff

I don't think anyone who has written or used lightspeed in regards to Star Wars duels has any understanding of just how fast that is. Made even more questionable by non-force sensitives fighting these characters in any capacity.

My favorite characters don't have to win every thread, nor even do good.

Contradictory power creep has caused nigh irrepairable damage to the standings of many characters.

Era superiority quotes are fundamentally flawed.

Most powerful quotes can't be taken seriously.

People believe in an imaginary Star Wars fighting system where despite 'z' character being incapable of stomping 'x' character they still claim that said character can stomp the vastly superior 'y' character.

Banite scaling quotes have been constantly interpreted in a way so that it 'retcons' the nigh-contradictory depictions of actual power gaps between the Banite Sith that we see in the lore.

1. Vader being anywhere near Sidious powerwise is a joke.
2. The level of lowballing of NJO characters is preposterous.
3. The Rule of Two scaling is vague and, more often than not, blown out of proportion. All that it tells us is that Tenebrous and his successors are better than Bane and Zannah... which is not much of an accomplishment.
4. RotJ Anakin's power level is a clusterfuck.
5. The blurp from Darth Plagueis does not apply to Valkorion.

Vader>Dooku
Dooku>=SOD Maul
Dooku isn't anywhere close to Yoda/Sidious
Bane is a lot more powerful than most people think
Vader is severely underrated
There is a significant growth in power from IH Kenobi to MF Kenobi. And MF Kenobi can give Dooku a good fight and may win
And lastly. Kenobi>Dooku in sabers

Why not Vader? Damn I think a Vader respect thread is due. I might take up that mantle if no one else will.
