Does anyone think this "bonus content" will definitely include Maul's final showdown? It'll be pretty annoying if they don't.

IIRC they said they're still in production the final material. So I'm hoping if Maul's final showdown wasn't already done that they will be finishing that as we speak.

Well yeah he defeated Ventress as early as the CW Movie.

The fact that Kit trashed Grievous in their first encounter to a degree not replicated by Obi-Wan until ROTS. Even as late as season 5, Grievous is giving Obi-Wan utter hell in single combat.

Additionally, Kit was one of the Temple's "celebrated swordmasters," was of similar rank and station (Council Master), and the spiel from The Cestus Deception where Obi-Wan aggressively fellates Kit for his skill.

TCD takes place a year after AOTC. The early episodes of TCW, on the other hand, take place "mere months" after AOTC per Leland Chee's Chronicling the Clone Wars.

Just so people are aware the time periods of the novels taken place during TCW have been revamped since TCW Series.

Dark Rendezvous for instance was originally set to take place only 6 months before ROTS.

But it now has to be revamped to before Ventress was betrayed by Dooku which was around Mid CW era according to Dave Filoni.

Cestus Deception will be revamped to very very early CW period. Like literally a few weeks after AOTC. It actually likely refers to one of the times Leeland Chee mentions Obi-Wan has already encountered Ventress before TCW Movie:

thumb up

Hence Obi-Wan, an amazing swordsman in his own right, listing Kit as "one of the greatest swordsmen the Order has ever produced."

Funny you would think if I was truly on someone's Ignore List, they wouldn't even be reading my comments let alone directly addressing me.

Grievous seemed to have improved through to ROTS. He went from losing to Fisto to stalemating Windu in sabers.

I'm sure Grievous's skill improved. But LOE was written prior to Lucas's alterations to the character. Lucas, TCW, and Filoni make it abundantly clear that Grievous is no match for the big boys and that includes Mace.

Grievous wasn't a match for Mace-- he just wasn't killed in the few seconds they fought. Tbh, I think Mace was caught off guard more than anything, as he clearly didn't know that GG was capable of mimicking advanced/unique lightsaber styles, like his own Vaapad, on the fly.

Since Grievous using two sabers hadn't been exposed to Vaapad yet, Wouldn't that be more grievous getting caught off guard and adapting? Regardless, Im not trying to prove that GG is maces equal only that he improved.

^ Nothing indicated that Grievous was caught off guard by Vaapad, whereas Mace decided to swiftly end the battle via other, more hands-off means, immediately after GG copied his technique.

Regardless, I know what you're saying. thumb up

I'd read about Kit's status, though I don't think complimenting someone automatically means they're better than you.

Yes, Fisto did well against Grievous, but I have a hard time believing he'd be > CW/ROTS Obi-Wan, given Obi-Wan's feats.

That, and they can't really have Obi-Wan beating Grievous in CW, as Grievous has to survive until ROTS.

I dunno, I mean, I guess I can see why you and others think Fisto is superior; I just don't agree.

Eh, the Clone Wars has really messed up some places in the powerscale. Since Filoni stated that Savage Opress did better than Fisto, Tiin, and Kolar combined against Sidious, I really doubt Fisto's one jarkai feat makes him equal to even CW Kenobi.

He really said that? What a tard. Meh, I guess in terms of how long they lasted, Savage did do better.

However, the argument can be made that Palpatine's demeanor during those two fights was completely different. Against Savage and Maul, Palpatine appeared to be toying with them-- he was literally chuckling the entire time. Against the Jedi team, however, Palpatine was deadly serious and immediately went for killing strikes. Had Palps possessed the latter demeanor against the brothers, they(Savage for sure) likely would have met just as swift(if not swifter) of an end.
