And you still don't understand. No one hates Revan, they hate the Revan fanboys.
Perhaps you didn't read my comment, allow me to quote myself:

Why do I, personally like Revan? Because he's complex, he's flawed and he's human. Yet despite that carries a distinct sense of mystery and grandeur about him. I don't much care for his achievement and failings [or power]. Few do.

The character I rolled in KOTOR 1 is not Revan. Her name is Luna Organa, she reclaimed the mantle of the Dark Lord and took over the galaxy, before jumping into a wormwhole and reappearing several years prior as the Jedi Exile.

And I expect others would agree with me. Whose Revan really resembles the Revan resembled in lore? Few.

Hm. My Revan was named PloKoon Rox. Pretty sure that's non-canon

Back to the actual discussion. Revan's death at the hands of the Emperor would have been better for me, but my reasoning would only work if the novel had a little more logical thinking put into it (it's better than what I had written previously).
No one would call you a troll for trashing Revan, its bad, and does Revan as a character a gross disservice.

I won't reveal how I think it should have ended in case I actually do decide to write my own version. Lol, spoilers.

I await the announcement. In the meantime, I'll get to re-reading the novel (no I didn't find a way to get rid of it yet, it keeps coming back!).

I said exactly what the writing says. That I don't get the Revan fanboys (Namely, the ones who proclaim he is some sort of invincible god and the most powerful force user ever).
As a response, you went on an epic (Sorry, there are no other or better words to describe it) Nerd rage, then proceeded to actually give me an answer directly related to my statement...



.. before going into rage mode again.

I stated my opinion concerning Revan, that I don't see what is so special about the guy and that I don't get the "Revan fanbois".
If that is enough to get you on a rant like this, I really must have hit a nerve.
So, let me get this straight. You decided to post on a thread discussing the poor handling of Revan's character with a statement that launches an attack (yes calling people derogatory names is a form of verbal abuse) on those who over inflate his abilities? Did you perhaps take a wrong turn? Or perhaps this isn't entirely truthful?

Yes, funnily enough, calling people fanboys tends to strike a nerve. And yes I do have a pet hate regarding incessant attempts to degrade Revan at every turn. That's two nerves. Especially when the crop up in threads that aren't even relevant. At least there is some logic behind actual Revan fanboyism, but Revan hate makes little sense whatsoever.

At the very least I hope my "nerd rage ranting" will deter others and perhaps even yourself from making such comments in the future. Because if you do I will continue to rage, until your ears bleed.

I named mine Darth Revan as a joke o_o

Sufficed to say, the line "I'm not Darth Revan, I'm Darth Revan!" cracked me up during the big reveal

But still, what do you think of when you hear Revan? Your Kotor character, it brings back memories. Why else do you think Revan can still be referred to as a "she" by accident.

And TBH, Most people in Kotor would have gone Lightside, you're a bit creepy for going DS, NGL, killing mission by forcing Zaalbar to execute her.... Just cruel

*in her best Kate Leftbridge Steward voice*

We've submitted the book to temperatures of plus and minus 200 celcius, dropped it from 10,000 feet and rolled our best tank over it. No change.

(+500 internetz for anyone who gets the refference)

The highlighted part is once again very funny.
I could have sworn this thread was about "Make Knights of the Old Republic 3".
But maybe my eyes were deceiving me when I read the thread.

And quite the contrary. Your entire rant has been nothing short of amazing, and just proving my point as well as why some people dislike Revan fanboys, as some people other than myself tried to explain to you in this thread.

But do keep living in your bubble,keep raging and rant your rants. It's very entertaining.

I'm not happy about reading it, but I have to read it so I don't miss anything. It will be thorough and it will be glorious
