Well I was meaning more them trying to get to it. But alright separating the two seems fair.

No, it isn't. They have lots of weird tech the Republic and the Sith don't have, but it's not once argued they were as a whole greater than the Republic or the Empire.

TOR exists, and always has existed, with Legends in mind.

They Defeated Soa.

"You met an incomprehensible power; you may have saved the whole galaxy."

―Shol Bestros (Star Wars: The Old Republic)


quote:
“The legends say it took an army to stop the Infernal One before the Rakata and the other ancients locked him away with his weapons. If we don’t do anything, though, the war against the Republic may be nothing next to what’ll come.”

―Threnoldt (Star Wars: The Old Republic)


The context of these quotes heavily imply, the Rakata handled a being, which the sith or Republic couldn't. Hence why there are multiply quotes of Soa being a threat towards the Galaxy.

Yes, I already mentioned this. Unless you can prove Soa wasn't the one causing those Pylons to elevate into the air (as they are moved via Telekinesis) to kill the Strike Team since he had failed twice to even hold them off, and this backfiring, the point is moot. Even then, you have yet to prove this was more of a disadvantage than him drawing power from the other pylons throughout the fight.

And forgive me, but did he literally wear Korriban as a crown? He must be even bigger than 50 feet tall, come to think of it, if he's wearing planets confused

Ohshitwait this guy exaggerates. I guess it's possible that 'chaining him' simply refers to taking out his empire and capturing him. Pretty much unwankable, really, this army is unquantifiable again. Yoda, Sidious, Krayt, and many others would need an army to be subdued, in case of a lack of strong force users. We've actually seen random Sith in Krayt's time destroy entire armies, so this quaint vague voiceover that might not actually be accurate is a strange choice on your end.

And yes, it is legit. The Rakatans imprisoned their kind, because of their race, we have seen this time and time again in numerous sources. The Rakatans did not kill their prisoners, so it makes far more sense for them to capture a man and imprison him (Belsavis was a ****ing prison world, you think it's weird for them to take prisoners?) due to an ideology than because they somehow couldn't kill him. It's literally unfathomable that you think a tiny portion of their power could enslave him, but their entire force could not. You're literally arguing above that a Rakatan pylon is the only reason the Strike team could kill Soa, but also that the Rakatans could not kill soa.

You are unfathomably stupid, this is the strangest argument I have ever seen. I would love someone else to chime in here.


All I need to 'prove' is that they couldn't kill him without causing his own pylons to backfire on him and kill him that way. Essentially killing himself.

He used Korriban as the proverbial crown in his empire. erm

Except it was an army of the ancients. The Rakata couldn't tackle him themselves, they went and got Gree and whatever the fvck else they could ally with to bring him down. Let's not pretend this was an army of fodder when the most advanced civilisations we know of are taking part.

The Rakata took prisoners to experiment on, exactly what do you imagine they could gleam from Soa. A Rakata.

Except it's not that the Rakata pylons holding him in stasis could kill him, it's him drawing energy from them and using that as a means of killing him.

I also notice you've yet to explain how World Razer doesn't factor in to all this. Nevermind that Soa's a galactic tier threat.
