I still heavily agree with Relativistic - FTL Jango. He’s fought Jedi on more than one occasion, he should somewhat scale to Boba who’s done the same, and Mandalorians are consistently portrayed as rivals to the Jedi during the EU.
Also Jango killed Komari Vosa, one of Dooku’s acolytes iirc.
Another blaster shot followed, then another, and the Jedi easily picked them both off, deflecting one and turning the other back at Jango. But as the bolt ricocheted toward him, the bounty hunter leapt away, his rocket pack flaring to life, sending him up to the top of the nearby tower.
I suddenly feel like making calcs based on the speed of the blaster bolts may be calc stacking. Any chance for us to just give characters the same speed of the blaster bolts instead of the higher results given when they dodge them?
If the blasters are scientifically Lightspeed, then it's fine to compare the speed of the characters moving in comparison. Calc Stacking is for reacting to attacks that don't have static speeds such as other characters moving. But a blaster with an already cut and dry Speed of Light attack speed isn't calc stacking.
Dooku brought a Jedi strike team to kill/stop Jango's mandolrians. After killing the rest of his tribe-squad he fought and beat the entire team besides Dooku, who stopped the fighting because he realized they were tricked or something.
So not Jedi Masters, but beating six+ knights with his bare hands is still notable supporting evidence.
Honestly I think it should always be a case by case basis. But from my experience it's assumed Legends blasters are always SoL, despite how little sense that makes in regards to a decent amount of C and T-Canon
AotC Mace had trouble deflecting his shots (from the Novelization)
Finally, the huge bullish creature swayed, and Jango wisely rolled out the far side, opposite Mace, as the beast collapsed.The Jedi was on him immediately, lightsaber weaving through the air. Jango dodged and lifted into the air with his rockets, trying to keep one step ahead of that deadly blade and to occasionally fire a bolt at Mace.
The man was good, Mace had to admit. Very good, and more than once the Jedi had to parry desperately to turn a bolt aside. He kept up his offensive flurry, though, keeping Jango on the defensive with sudden stabs and slashing cuts.
Mace's quote from Shatterpoint
My blade doesn't light the underside of Fett's square jaw. I don't waste time with words. I don't hesitate. I believe. In my dreams, the purple flare of my blade sizzles the gray hairs of Dooku's beard, and in the critical semisecond it takes Jango Fett to aim and fire, I twitch that blade and take Dooku with me into death. And save the galaxy from civil war.
I could have done it
I don't have the cutscene on hand. But it is canon that in hos solo game Jango beat a Dark Jedi in direct combat without her being nerfed in any way.
Yeah, but if Jango wasn't fast enough Mace would be able to turn and block the shot. So Jango's processing and trigger speed need to be good enough to shoot his blaster in the semi-second Mace kills Dooku and before he can return to a defensive posture.
Unless you meant the AotC novel quote, which might be more the weapon than Jango. Although Mace explicitly noted his aim is what was deadly rather than just the blaster bolts.
Actually thinking about it Boba was probably correct in the second one. Vader was focusing on saving the box so its likely he couldn't augment his durability in time to tank one of Boba's stronger weapons.
If the armor has a 8-A feat I can agree with Boba's weapon scaling that high, but he shouldn't be scaling to Vader himself.
In the AT-AT's cased, that's more so that it had massive amounts of Durasteel and to the point with high thickness levels of it to get said levels of durability. Not that every molecule of it is 8-A. But yeah, durability of metals is nonlinear as heck. And actually, Boba Fett and Jango can tank Lightsabers well so as long as the ones using them aren't super strong. Duraplast was actually stated to grant good lightsaber resistance on Wookiepedia.
We have already applied the FTL to Jango Fett and co.
We are currently questioning the validity of Darth Vader's armour and the Fetts being rated as 8-A, because the star droids are apparently made of "heavy durasteel", and durasteel varies in durability depending on thickness and alloy (for example the AT-AT is made of High 7-C thick durasteel).
If we don't have better options, we'll use High 8-C which was accepted as the bare minimum of durasteel before, although if there are better feats we can of course use them.
