Yoda: worst jedi ever?

Basically its what I have said before, and what Yoda has said. "always in motion is the future" A force user no matter how powerful or how skilled in Foresight can only see the paths they perceive as a possibility. Palps could have never suspected Vader would turn to light or that a bunch of helpless small teddy bears would pose any kind of a threat, and because his mind could not perceive these things as even a remote possibility he was blind to that particular future.

He was quite literally blinded by Arrogance.

Yoda? The worst? Absolutely not. The worst is Coleman Trebor who died by getting SHOT IN THE FACE, and he saw Jango too. How this guy was let on to the Jedi Council..

Because he was a pretty good negotiator, they put him on that Council because he had a large number of contacts, he was able to deal with several species, he averted several disputs throughout the galaxy without bloodshed and was pretty much the spokesbeing for the Jedi Order and was well respected.

Not every Jedi is a battle warrior and to be fair he was able to deflect a couple of shots from Jango. He just wasn't good enough to survive.

Lets face it guys the worst jedi ever is going to be one of the members of the Jedi Council who decided to ignore the Mandalorian Wars and "meditate" instead. I nominate the Vrook, the head honcho, or their resident zealot Atris.

Yoda is the worst jedi ever, in the context of doing so very little for the amount power he had.
The things he was most well known for were training Luke, retarded way of speaking and being small and green.

This^

Season 6 of TCW really drives this point.

They have all the clues about Order 66...and it's his decision to not do anything about it.

He see's visions of everything that is about to happen...and he decides not to do anything about it.

He doesn't even tell any other Jedi about what he saw and what he went through.

Basically...he's saying "f*** it, I just went through a trial to make sure that I live on after death...what do I care if every other Jedi is going to die".
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no fear, there is power. I am the heart of the force. I am the revealing fire of light. I am the mystery of darkness, in balance with chaos and harmony...immortal in the force.

Atris, if you even count her as a Jedi.

Sacrificed 100's of Jedi to Nihilus in an attempt to save herself, and draw out the sith so her incredible power could end them

As for the Jedi who preached patients, they were right.
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away fromů save one.

Yoda was given a vision of certain events. I believe Yoda's lessons on Farsight can indicate why he did nothing.

I understand that "always in motion is the future"...but still...to not say or do anything at all is absurd.

He easily could have taken steps to prevent order 66 and the near eradication of all Jedi...but chose not to.
