Han Solo did NOT shoot first

My issue is more with how BAD the scene looks now with Han twitching his head all weird, and in the last 3 versions the audio has been slightly changed. one time he mouthed 'i bet you have' but didn't say it.

If you consider it now he's really lucky Greedo missed I guess? whereas before, he distracted him and when the moment came he shot first. The change kinda diminishes Han's rogue, dashing self in my eyes. But its probably from seeing him shoot first and only shoot for so many years that the change is abrupt to me.

This is right up there with all the pistols were removed and replaced with walkie-talkies at the end of E.T.

How could Han shoot first in a perfect carebear world?

I was very upset when the very first post-launch nerf in SWTOR was to a Smuggler ability named "Shoot First". Lucas' evil hand was definitely at work there.

I was also very disappointed when it turned out that the name Hanshot'First had already been taken on my server. I'm pretty sure GL has snagged it for himself on every server.

But we won't be silenced. The Truth is out there!

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.
