That isn't the point, the crux of Tune's argument over Pallaeon vs Antilles is that Pallaeon was being forced back by Antilles in an active battle hence 'mildly superior to Gilad', yet it has been made clear in the canon that this was merely a trap set by Pallaeon to lure Antilles and his flagship out, so they could trap it and beat it.

At the same time I don't think Pellaeon ever intended to lose those 6 planets. Last I checked he had wanted to keep them but realized he couldn't and was forced out of them by Wedge. Wedge wasn't receiving back up and Wedge was winning those fights with what he had. All in all ship to ship when they have equal numbers and equal intel they are around equal. When intel fools one side or the other the person who does the fooling is the one that has the advantage. Wedge has fooled your intelligence officer before, both Pellaeon and Wedge have fooled each other before, and My own intelligence agency (hapan intelligence backed by all kinds of infiltration, special operations and intelligence officers) help make sure my team isn't fooled.

Well altogether they seem fairly equal, so its a minor point.

Funny thing is all of this was technically already covered in the debate in pretty good length. Beni are you going to read through all the posts and call it soon? I have a feeling at this rate we will be done with the sith duelist list before this is called.

I was hoping to wait for more people to appear, but it doesn't seem fair to let this languish any longer. So I'll be making an announcement later today.

Again apologies for the wait, but I got busy and no one seemed around and time flies.

Please be aware that the scenario is merely a visual representation of the score and had no bearing on the final outcome. This is just one of many scenarios that could have occurred.

The factions engaged in a titanic struggle across multiple fronts with Kraytís Vision scoring an early victory against the Alliance of Worlds after a supposed failed invasion on the shipyards of Foerost, which ended with the Alliance fleeing in hasty retreat. What followed was a series of indecisive and bloody engagements across the Core Worlds, yet significant ground was made for Kraytís empire when elite commando squads from the 501st successfully infiltrated and destroyed a series of planetary shield generators, exposing them to orbital bombardment and ultimately fell to superior firepower.

However the victory was short lived, for the Battle at Foerost had in fact been a faÁade for a infiltration mission, with the Alliance using the confusion and fallout to smuggle special forces onto the planet below under the assistance of the feared and deadly assassin, IG-88. The damage they dealt was considerable, the shipyards of Foerost were destroyed in a fiery inferno, cargo vessels vanished and chaos erupted across supply routes after probots were hacked and turned against their makers, and Emperor Krayt soon found himself forced to recall troops from the frontlines to deal with civil unrest, sabotage and terrorism caused by special forces who successfully infiltrated the Deep Core.

Infuriated at this turn of events which was slowly sapping at the strength of the empire and turning the tide of the war against them Krayt resorted to extreme measures, unleashing a genetically engineered bioweapon known as the Krytos Virus at the behest of his personal intelligence officer, Ysanne Isard. The virus wrought havoc on the Alliance, spreading like wild fire across their alien populations. Deeply perturbed by the growing number of casualties among her people Supreme Chancellor Leia Organa tasked her allies, the Hapes Consortium, with providing aid who dedicated their entire royal guard to distributing medicine and tending to the weak. However the problem soon grew even worse as the virus began to infect military personnel, lowering morale and dealing significant damage to their numbers.

Yet while the strength of their armies dwindled the Alliance managed to retain naval superiority thanks to the loss of the enemies shipyards and the support of the Hapes Consortium fleets, whatís more Kraytís Vision soon found their efforts on the ground thwarted when their War Droids, who unknown to them had been hacked and converted into sleeper agents by IG-88, turned on them and sowed confusion and chaos amongst their ranks.

Saddled with these disadvantages, Kraytís military progress was halted and they were steadily pushed back before losing Foerost, sealing them in the Deep Core. The Alliance then forced them on the defensive, using the secret lanes acquired by Leia to strike at their own planets on multiple fronts. With Kraytís forces spread thin and their interdiction fleets destroyed the Alliance managed to push through into Byss where Gilad amassed a defensive fleet. Unable to break their defences the Skywalker twins and a series of other strike teams invaded the surface and made their way to the Emperorís throne room. Krayt was prepared and had Darth Talon at his side but the Skywalkerís bolstered by battle meld proved too powerful even for Kraytís dark transfer to overcome and were defeated.

The Alliance of Worlds is victorious.

I understand your reluctance to call it immediately... Close one, well done all.

Look forward to our face off Tune!

Obviously I disagree, but it was a very close one.
