So, slight delay on this competition creation (in progress) and posting due to my weekend at the Celebration. Tomorrow is the final day for the Royal Strike event in Star Wars Galactic Defense. This event is the traditional map layout, not the new Arena style. Nute Gunray is the Event Special Recruit and can be purchased in Durasteel Pods. Queen Amidala is the Event Champion, who's special move is to call in a Royal Guard to assist.

Over the next few days I'll be going through the competition que and grading/awarding any which are ready. Hoping to be caught up by the weekend.

So I've been back in Ohio from Star Wars Celebration for under 24 hours. In that time I've been watching Live Streams of Panels I missed and thinking of creative ways to get my wife to come to STAR WARS CELEBRATION 2016 in LONDON next year!!!

Just over one hour ago tickets for Star Wars Celebration at the London Excel Center on July 16, 17, 18 of 2016 went up for sale. Tickets prices are pretty good:

  • 3 Day Adult: £70 ($103)
  • Friday: £30 ($44)
  • Saturday: £35 ($51)
  • Sunday: £30 ($44)

The Excel Center appears to be right next to the London Airport from what I've seen looking at a few maps. For all of our European members, this is an awesome opportunity! I hope you have the chance to get to it, and I really, really, really hope I can make it to it and meet a few of you all there!

Lando Comic

With Star Wars Celebration this past weekend there was a ton of news that came tumbling out of it. A lot of it could easily get lost, so here is some of the details that were released concerning upcoming books and novels. From now until the movies, these will be your true source of information for how the "new canon" will be shaping up.

As you can see from the image above, there will be a new Lando Calrissian mini-series coming out in July. This series takes place before Empire Strikes Back, and will even feature Lobot. Apparently the plot will revolve around Lando trying to steal a highly coveted starship. Writer Charles Soule and artist Alex Maleev will be the creative team on the mini-series.

Shattered Empitre

The creative team for the post-RotJ comic, Shattered Empire, was also released. The writer will be Greg Rucka and the artist is Marco Checchetto. Both of them have worked together, and their style can be considered a lot more grounded or street-level than many others working for Marvel. They did a fantastic Punisher series together, and Rucka does a lot of spy and street-level work. While they have not release any details as to the plot of the series, the creative team may give an indication of where they could be going with things. It may be a much rougher and darker story, and maybe not a lot of big space battles ground battles. It would be something very different to the current Star Wars series.

And speaking of that series, the current artist on it will be leaving after issue 6, which will complete the current storyline. There will be a one-shot with issue 7 that will focus on Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine and will be drawn by Simone Bianchi. His work is unique and quite pretty, but also very different so it will be interesting to see how it melds with Star Wars. Taking on regular art duties with issue 8 is Stuart Immonen, who is a very strong artist, with fluid artwork, who is great both with action scenes and character scenes.

DB Logo

There wasn't quite as much news on the novel-side of things. One of the larger news items was that there would be a Battlefront tie-in novel called Battlefront: Twilight Company. It will focus on the Rebels, and give you a view of the front-line soldiers in the trenches. I was actually hoping for something on the Battle of Jakku, but this appears like it will focus on the time period between ANH and ESB.

There was a little news on the novelization of The Force Awakens, with the e-book being released on the same date as the movie (Dec. 18th) and the hardcover coming out sometime in January of 2016. Alan Dean Foster, who actually ghost-wrote the original A New Hope novelization, will be writing this one.

Lastly, on October 6th there will be a collection called Rise of the Empire, which will include A New Dawn (prequel to the Rebels series), Tarkin and 3 short stories, with one of them tying into the post-RotJ novel Aftermath.

I hoping for more information for all of the various novels that will be coming out, and it looks like I need to catch up on some comics since there seems to be a lot of good things going on there. They have top-level talent working on the Star Wars books, so it may be worth to at least pick up the collected storylines.

This morning/afternoon we saw the Star Wars Battlefront Panel at Celebration, and while it wasn't quite as enthralling as the Force Awakens panel, we did get to see the first new footage of the game since last year's E3. The footage, to say the least, was beautiful.

Star Wars Battlefront

That is all in engine footage (obviously tweaked in cinematic styling) to showcase the beauty of the game. The developers shared during the course of the panel the depths they went through to create the environments: actually going to the barren deserts of Death Valley, or the infamous Redwood forests of Endor to be able to live and breath the places we're going to be seeing in the game. The attention to detail is obvious, and from the looks of it we'll have at least a new visually stunning platform on our hands as of November 17th, 2015.

There was some other information that was released both in the preview granted to the press, as well as in the panel. These are the highlights that I took away from all that was said in the panel. Obviously this is only scratching the surface, but hopefully we'll have more information soon!

Gameplay notes

  • Will feature 20 vs. 20 Gameplay
  • First and Third person perspective
  • No Campaign Mode, has Missions (Can be played alone, online and locally)
  • Heroes Available: Vader and Boba Fett confirmed, no idea how they interact online.

  • Deluxe edition will also ship with instant access to in-game items such as the infamous DL-44 Blaster, as well as some other weapons.
  • The is also apparently going to be an accompanying novel to Battlefront released before the game.

As we previously reported there's going to be a lot of live streaming options for the Star Wars Celebration over the next few days, making sure that we'll all be testing the patience of significant others and employers alike. Just to make sure you have easy access though, here's the link to the opening panel: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

This panel features both JJ Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy, the two people who are most influential in the next series of the saga we all love so much. It's also been heavily rumoured that we'll be seeing the second trailer for the movie, which we can only hope is as amazing as the first.

So, without further adieu... the youtube livestream of the Force Awakens Panel!

Welcome to a brief review of the many games that are played within the Dark Jedi Brotherhood! For any viewers who have found this site through our Star Wars Celebration Tweets or Facebook posts, we're glad to see you've made it to our small piece of home on the interwebz.

The Dark Jedi Brotherhood maintains Guilds and Clans in multiple games, primarily to facilitate members being able to find and game with each other easily. In Star Wars: The Old Republic we primarily play a Empire Side Guild on the Jedi Covenant Server. As you can see from the pictures below we have a fully developed Guild Stronghold and are working out way towards buying a Capital Ship.

Imgur Imgur

For members on the go we often are running mobile gaming competitions for Star Wars Commander and Star Wars Galactic Defense. These competitions focus primarily around the in game events, and award Crescents which become permanent fixtures on your Dossier as well as a few bonus Cluster of Fire awards. We have several Squads in Star Wars Commander, and our highest ranking member in the game is currently Talon Drear with a Medal score of 4,703, take a look at that base.

Imgur

In Star Wars Galactic Defense the current "top spot" is being held down by Montresor, who has earned first in nearly every competition run for the game so far. He was kind enough to provide us a screenshot of his team of Champions in action during this past weekends War on Geonosis event.

Imgur

While we do support several Player vs Player types of matches in the older X-Wing Games, the current Space Sim which has been gaming popularity within the Club is Star Conflict. This is a free to play game available on Steam. We have a Corporation set up in game and a nearing the point where we can begin construction on one of the newly introduced Dreadnaughts. Recently we had 7 members decide to fire up a custom match and put their piloting skills to the test.

Imgur

Among other PC games Diablo 3 has gathered a following, kind of a genre switch for a Star Wars Club, but the gamers seem to enjoy it. We've been running Competitions centered around the Seasons in game and based on highest Greater Rift completion.

Imgur

In addition to PC and Mobile games we've had groups of members begin to dive into Console games as well. Currently the most popular of the Console games is Destiny, where we have a Clan which takes part in PVP and end game Raids, recently completing the Crota's End Raid with a Fireteam of only 5 people in 40 minutes.

Imgur

Well, that was a small peak into some of the gaming going on within the DJB. Some other games which members play together that aren't pictured are:

  • Jedi Academy
  • X-Wing Series Games
  • Pazaak
  • Starcraft
  • Guild Wars 2
  • Grand Theft Auto V
