Potential spoilers for season 1 of the Mandalorian, though everyone else has probably already seen it.

Baby Yoda is suspicious. Everyone likes him right away.. except the droid. When the droid goes to kill him Baby Yoda raises a hand as if he is trying to use the force. Nothing moves so it isn't telekinesis. Which implies to me that Baby Yoda was trying to mindtrick the droid. Has he been using the force to make people like him all along?

Now he's force choking people? Baby Yoda sus, as the kids say.

Lightside Anakin vs Windu would have been a good fight though. I wish we had seen it.

Impero was always a hard fight. He always had a powerful character with a strong bio. Always. I never looked at an Impero character and said 'Eh, that particular alt isn't a threat'. All of them were tough. When I fought him I tried to make sure I fought -only- him. If I had to fight two or three other people in an event, then fight Impero, that was probably not going to work out. My character needed to be at peak health and have access to all their resources before going against him.

Plus, you can't beat Impero by just biting down on your mouthpiece and throwing down. Every character is like a puzzle. A lethal puzzle that is trying to rip your head off every second it remains unsolved. I never had to think as hard as I did when I fought Impero. Not even Gambler or Zaubs made me think as hard. (They posed their own challenges, unique to them.)

Impero was a high output guy too. He was disciplined and could crank out a big, detailed post, day in, day out. I wasn't going to wear him out. Some battlers you could exhaust. They'd have a burst of creativity and come at you hard. You'd have two or sometimes even three posts which were powerful offensively but they faded hard after that. (I became particularly expert at defeating this type of battler.) Not Impero. His endurance wasn't limitless; I saw him fatigue in certain situations but it didn't matter; he didn't have to outlast infinity, just other battlers and no battler in his league had the creative stamina he did. The only people who could outlast him were people he could go over like a bulldozer so it didn't matter.

This was doubly threatening with Impero because he also had offensively powerful characters. It wasn't just volume or power, it was volume of power. This only magnified the importance of either fighting Impero and only Impero with a character at full power or fighting other people and dodging Impero like I was in the Matrix. I didn't mind jumping in against other people with a beat up character low on resources. It was an opportunity to look cool. Against other people. Against Impero it was an opportunity to get run the **** over by a freight train.

I could say a lot more. If I were to write a series about RPG battles Impero would be an entire book. A thick one.

@kasumi_misuti: That is my bad, I didn't realize you had been here that long. I'm afraid I'm out of touch and don't know all the alts.
