@lordofthelight: Dude, there's no reason to type that long. Reading your posts can be dreadful enough - cut that to a third next-time.
Ackbar clearly states that they won't last against those star destroyers at such a close range. He especially mentions their power as the main cause to it. This only serves to reinforce Gallia's feat.
What an atrocious false equivalency. Capital ships can't dodge the turbolasers of other capital ships. Capital ships can tank the fire of snub fighters. Snub fighters can dodge the turbolasers of capital ships. Snub fighters can't tank the fire of snub fighters. See the difference?
I can assure you, the last thing on the author's mind was how to keep Adi Gallia's power level below that of Malgus as he wrote the showing in the manual there. The simplest explanation has to be considered keeping in mind the feat in question and its context, not cross era comparisons because that is your luxury. As it is there is absolutely no argument for why the showing is holistically not applicable, but that's actually later
-- and now we have a red herring. I never mentioned the intent of the author. However, game mechanics are S-Canon. They don't have the authority to radically shift the general foundations of the continuity, nor create sweeping plot holes throughout most stories.
-That starship fire would be present everywhere in the battle. The capital ship fire only comes into play when she comes close to the ship at a reasonable length.
False. Capital ships can hit her wherever she goes - they're capital ships. They can shoot from space and hit a planet. Snub fighters have far more limited range. Rewatch the Falcon chasing that rogue Tie Fighter as they approach the Death Star to see how close snub fighters need to be to shoot one-another. That's not to say that threat of turbolasers doesn't also increase as she approaches due to accuracy, etc., but the same is obviously true for snub fighters. Given there's no way of knowing which the prima guide is referring to, we shouldn't defer to the far more impression version over the one that easily fits within continuity.
Your argument that the concentration of ships varies may be correct, however the difference is marginally decent at best. That and there are extremely isolated instances when enemy ships move out of capital ships, that is, it doesn't happen during most of the battle, hence the concentration of ships near capital ships for most of the battle is loosely the same as that in other areas this is ignoring other things as a limited number of ships ganging up on one starfighter and other semantics that may or may not be crucial.
False. Enemy ships constantly pour out of enemy vessels - both in-film and especially in-games. Entire games are built around that premise, even.
-That the quote makes use of her force shield being effective at such a scenario, ( that much is true and verified throughout the lore) and that it is effective to use force shield then.
Unlikely. If we looked at the game itself, I guarantee you that, even if you don't have a force shield on, you won't be getting one-shot by a turbolaser. The closer she gets to the capital ship, the more ships that will fire on her. The more ships that will fire on her, the greater chance her ship's natural shielding will falter. The greater chance her ship's natural shielding will falter, the better reason to use the Force to support the defense. Not that hard.
You hilariously say that this is used to "hype" the showing, but indeed, this confirms that the quote is talking about turbolaser bolts. Because though even one begins to accept your version that the concentration is higher near the capital ships, that honestly doesn't matter to any noticeable extent. The shields present can deflect the bolts of a certain level of power no matter how many bolts come their way. They begin to lose power due to duration. Hence, if 4 ships are present normally in the battle, but 9 near the capital ships, it doesn't matter because those 9 ships cannot fire simultaneously, to overload the shields( the odds on that are astronomically low), and hence the only thing that differs there is the frequency, which doesn't matter unless as I said( all ships fire at once). The shields can deflect a certain level of power for a certain duration of time, the only thing that can breach the shields is if the power is incredibly high or time runs out
This dynamic that you describe - "the shields present can deflect the bolts of a certain level of power no matter how many bolts come their way" - is textbook game mechanics. Obviously, if a thousand turbolasers simultaneously shot at Adi Gallia, she would die. The fact she wouldn't under these game mechanics makes their validity suspect. Likewise, Obi-Wan can't replenish his health by killing another stormtrooper (as shown in Battlefront II campaign), and Revan can't conjure a Force bubble that renders him invulnerable to every conceivable attack in the game for an indefinite period of time.
I'm skimming through the rest of this post. Let me know if I missed out anything relevant - I probably didn't.
You can simply ignore the whole wall of text, that doesn't change that holistically, technically, logically, by every perspective, the greatest and most imminent threat to her is the capital ship fire, hence force shields are especially effective to use in that situation.
Against a snub fighter, thirty snub fighters are a greater threat than slow, capital-ship turbolasers. We've seen this since the Trench Run in 1977.
To the holistic argument, Gallia is one of the best Jedi Masters in the Council, this in the prime of the Jedi. She has the same hierarchy in the Jedi Order as Malgus had in the Sith. By all accounts she is the cream of the crop, in an era that produces the best Jedi on average. Attributing a high tier feat to her is not at all an inconsistency. You class her as a third rate Jedi, simply because she hasn't had the exposure that Jedi you would class as among the best, like Mace or Kenobi have. Being one of the best members of the Jedi Council puts her easily at one of the best hierarchies that she can get, and obviously puts her capable of being better than Sith Lords among the best, should she have the showing to prove that, or the argument.
Hierarchical placement within the Jedi Order has little to do with holistics - or even power, for that matter.
So, yeah, I see no reason to assume the prima guide's supporting that she can tank turbolasers, and even if Leland Chee comes down and says that it does then it's just as irrelevant as a litany of other game mechanics that fall under the same umbrella.
No promises I can continue this discussion further though, depending on how long you next post is.
