Basically this in a nutshell.

Why is the Warrior even considered to be more powerful in melee combat, when my Inquisitor and Shadow kicked butt in melee with their lightsaber?

I honestly think that's a ridiculous position to take. The keyword being 'were', as in... they were but no longer. Why? Because some of them are dead (Jadus is captured, but I doubt the council would let him live due to the whole Sattelite business idea he had... at least, I wouldn't let him live afterwards). Hadra gets killed by anyone waltzing along the pub corelia storyline as well.

Also, it's kinda meaningless to compare 'power' levels between two people who never met, but at the end of the day, a couple of people that you're championing fell (as in, not even their 'power' was sufficient to save them) and yet the Sith Warrior (or Inquisitor) still live.

Isn't Jadus only captured if you choose that option on the Agent? I haven't run all the FPs/OPs/what have you, but having completed Agent storyline, I know you can work for Jadus, and I know my Agent tried to blow him up with the ship, but he got away and was never heard from again.

So my question is...how is it Jadus became a "were" and not "is"?

The Wrath was not mentioned because he is beyond them. The Emperor would not choose a Wrath who wasn't capable of destroying any Dark Council member - probably all of them at the same time.

Yep sorry still not buying it, whatsoever, love your class all you like, the Sith Warrior is NOT more powerful than Malgus, Marr and Jadus they are considered the best the Empire had.

Oh and Jadus clearly wasn't taking anything seriously in that engagement, believing otherwise is foolish.

We know as fact that Nox is considered the least powerful Dark Council member and we have no idea how the Wrath of the Emperor matches up at all.

Unless anyone here can provide sufficient evidence to suggest that the Wrath is more powerful, then just quit.

Simply put it takes four in the False Emperor flashpoint, that should say everything.

Burden of proof switching isn't exactly how a debate works. "He wasn't taking the encounter seriously" is a pretty feeble excuse, tbh.

But then again, False Emperor was not a matter of e-peen measurement, it was an operation to put down a traitor.
You don't seriously expect a SWAT team leader go 1 on 1 against the terrorist leader and face him in the field of honour, do you? No, they bash their way in, taking any advantage they can to secure a 100% fast and clean operation success.
