Give a Stormtrooper a Lightsaber and he's likely to end up decapitating himself.

JJ Abrams never made a really good film.

Prove me wrong.

He will make a film where big things crash into big things. Featuring people falling off big things but then getting rescued at the last minute. This is what he does. If you like that then go see Star Wars VII.

Sounds a lot like another Star Wars director.
when you try to mock anyone while also running the flat earth society. Lol

It is a widely known fact that Storm Troopers can't shoot for shit.

Irrelevant. Teddy bears beating them is still ridiculous.

Not really. Walkers and speeders are out of their element in the forest (unless you have force reflexes). It's the teddy bears' home and they're using tactics that the Empire isn't used to. Think of it like Indians against the British, where the Indians are fighting in the woods on lands they know and the British can't shoot anything. Seems like a pretty easy win to me.

Just because you can't get past their cute and fuzzy exterior doesn't mean their victory is ridiculous.

Indians were human.. It's more like comparing us to beings 4x larger, with all the strength and mass differences that would be there. You could just kick them away.

The Stormtrooper E-11 blaster rifle is supposedly pretty shit too. When you use one in the Jedi Knight games, they never hit center in the reticule, compared to the light blaster which always hit center.

Irrelevant, those games are no longer canon.

Unless you stop running around like a spastic and using the alt attack 24/7.

This is inaccurate.  The speeder scene clearly showed that the troopers could move at high speed without hitting a tree under normal circumstances.  This shows quick reflexes and skills.piloting at high velocity in a dense forest.

Secondly, the tactics used were: drop rocks
Logs to trip walkers (that one made sense)
Crush with logs.
Bolas

This was their entire tactical arsenal.

And please note that the victory only came when a walker was stolen by chewie.  Before that, they were screwed.  So basically, walkers are shit.  Blasters are shit.  And trooper armor can't even stop a rock thrown by a teddy bear so its double shit. (One rock = dead trooper)
The conviction will get overturned on appeal.

Yeah, the Empire sucks. All they have that's worth anything is Vader, the Emperor, and the Death Star.
