I disagree with some things.

First, the quote from "Skywalker is a natural, a machine of rage" is referring to their short 1v1 after Kenobi is down. The part where Skywalker was wrecking Dooku is before Kenobi was permanently knocked out.

And the Savage that failed to ragdoll Dooku in strength is not the same Savage as the one that went up against Anakin and Obi-Wan. In his fight with Dooku, Savage clearly wasn't using his strength based style, and was sloppy with a blade per Dooku, whereas the Savage that fought the Jedi duo was already labeled a master of the dual-bladed saber, a weapon that is incredibly hard to master and impossible to use for the "fodder" or "average" Jedi.

Ventress was also away from Dooku when Savage threw him back. Dooku's focus clearly wasn't split there. He was fully focused on Opress.

Pushing someone back in bladelocks doesn't mean much. Even though Maul was kicking Seventh Sister and her companions around in a 3v1 with relative ease, she gained an edge in their bladelock. Maul was clearly stronger than the Sister as evidenced when he kicked her around while fighting the other Inquisitors and also physically owning the other Inquisitors while fighting the two remaining Inquisitors, yet still lost the bladelock. Bladelocks aren't indicators of strength.

Anakin's TCW S4 iteration (which per Starwars.com is vastly less powerful than S6 Anakin) floored Dooku with a kick, hammering at his defenses with strength, nearly forcing Dooku's blade back to his face while completely overpowering the good Count with a choke. That's a much more clear indicator of strength than Dooku pushing Anakin in a bladelock. In an outliar showing, given how Ventress+S3 Savage, a far inferior duo, nearly beat Dooku, and how Ventress' pretty obvious inferiors in AOTC Kenobi/Anakin gave Dooku grief in an individual 1v1, so much so that Anakin nearly won per the novel.

Grievous' style isn't strength-based, thus Dooku would have an easier time dealing with it than he would have with Opress or Skywalker. And that's an outliar too, given how Opress and Skywalker have inferior strength feats to Grievous. And I don't dismiss things as an outliar just because I don't like it, just because at least two of Dooku's other showings pretty clearly make it that way.

But Dooku isn't overall weak to strength. The blog is good, and I agree with the main point it's trying to convey. Just disagreeing with some of the arguments used to prove that point.

Somewhat off-topic: I didn't get a notification for this, and found it while responding to AlexTheBoss in the Maul/Kenobi vs Dooku/Vos thread.

Luminara deserved some respect.

This thread was pretty good. Even better than the other one.

Good RT.

BTW, Vader isn't in his prime by Rebels. The Hidalgo quote is talking about Vader's development as a character, not combatant.

@emperordmb:

the main reason I made this was because I am firmly in the Windu camp of Windu vs Dooku,

Yeah, I also back Windu. So much so that I'm actually debating for him in a CaV- yes, it's Windu vs Dooku. My opponent used the "Dooku easily beat Bulq saber-wise, Mace stalemated him" argument, and the "Mace had lots of grief with pre-prime Ventress".

and Windu's my second or third favorite Jedi, and I got tired of these fights being used to lowball him

Yeah, it's kinda annoying that people think Bulq is on Windu's level. And when they use that to put Dooku>Windu. And act like Ventress is a serious threat to Windu as of Ruul.

Really good. And this blog was even better for me because I awfully needed the "Mace was distressed" quote against Sora Bulq.

Really good work.

Apart from Obi-Wan Kenobi, OK. Though I wouldn't have that much Jedi- I have always preferred the Sith.

Malachor isn't even a nexus, much less a potent one.

Aside from that, good work.

Really good. This raised my ranking of Kylo. By a good margin.
