Both superweapons are inserted into the Starcraft Universe, which one causes more havoc?

Round 2:

Which one was a bigger threat during it’s respective time period?

    Au crusher for all except the Starcraft one. Simply put it is a better weapon, but it has an ammo problem. Basically the only reason it causes less havoc is it runs out of shots. Unless it goes instantly for star killer base and kills its sun. It outclasses it in just about everyway.

    Well Starkiller got screwed over by the plot, its still a multi planet buster (per shot).
    Can hit said planets from anywhere in the galaxy almost instantly (it moves).
    And reloads by eating a sun, its basically a super Galaxy Gun crossed with the Star Forge.

    P.S. Happy new year guys!!!.

    And even then the plot had to intervene multiple times before it successfully destroyed the Starkiller because…well it makes sense that it would be nigh impossible to kill a planet with a handful of X-wings

    Yeah, except they should have matched this with something like the galaxy gun, yeah it’s a multi planet killer, and it uses the sun to power it, but the sun crusher withstands supernovas without a scratch and kills Suns. So it can remove the power source for the star killer base and kill it. Simply put, starkiller would be better off dueling with the Galaxy gun.

    3rd round, having the starkiller is basically owning you own planet that is a reference to another overpowered entity in star wars.

    Oh not saying it wins a head to head fight, I mean didn’t they only destroy the Sun Crusher by it falling into a fucking black hole if I remember right?
    Just saying the Starkiller is still pretty damned impressive considering that unless you get the shield turned off somehow you basically need at least a planet busting attack of your own to kill it.

    ” basically need at least a planet busting attack of your own to kill it.”

    Obv not.

    I think the Starkiller Base is better.

    Sun Crusher is nigh invincible, yes. Sun Crusher does have technically more firepower with its ability to create Supernova. But I think the Starkiller Base is better because it can kill almost as many targets (a star system) with as many shots (one) BUT… it does this from considerably farther away, like quarter of the galaxy away.

    If the Sun Crusher is within the system with the Starkiller, yes the Sun Crusher will happily blow up the sun and destroy the Starkiller along with it. But if you want to use them as terror weapons, Starkiller Base has better first strike capability, better protection against pretty much everything that is not the Sun Crusher, and its a sweet planet to boot, so it doubles as a staging base for your troops and protection for your fleet.

    So, for question one, which one screws over Starcraft more… Starkiller by a small margine, because you only need to blow up a single system to really screw over Starcraft and both can do this trivially.

    For question two, I think Starkiller again, but only because Kyp Darwin was the one in control of the Sun Crusher for most of the time and he just wanted to murder the bad guys, while Starkiller was deadset to murder all the good guys. Sun Crusher could be a bigger threat if Kyp wasn’t trying to be an anti-hero and instead was a flat out villain instead, but he wasn’t so its threat is reduced.

    3: Starkiller Base all the way. Sweet ass planet on top of a superweapon. And it can move too, so its also a ship.

    I’ll go with the solar powered mobile joy planet.

    Least it’s more Eco friendly…

    @pimpmage on post 7
    Did you read his full post?
    He said ” unless you get the shield turned off somehow” which is a valid point.

  11. LadyRamkin January 1, 2016 at 9:23 am -      #11

    Does no one else find it weird that starwars has engines that can move planets?

  12. Jake_Uzumaki January 1, 2016 at 11:57 am -      #12

    Not really, the EU had a living planet with Hyperdrive capabilities so its not out of the question.

  13. Friendlysociopath January 1, 2016 at 12:04 pm -      #13

    A key point for this (on my end) would be how quickly the Starkiller base can get to a new star. Because the thing firing twice completely took away the sun it was using.
    Do we know how fast they can get into position to start grabbing energy again?

  14. pimpmage January 1, 2016 at 12:07 pm -      #14

    He said ” unless you get the shield turned off somehow” which is a valid point.”

    It’s shield was never tested,

  15. Jake_Uzumaki January 2, 2016 at 3:37 am -      #15

    It uses a normal planetary shield, which the only times we’ve seen penetrated without first disabling the shield via ground assault of some kind first is when the First Death Star destroyed Alderaan and when Starkiller base destroyed the capital system of the New Republic from across the galaxy.
    The planetary shield around the DS 2 was decided by the Rebels to be too strong to get through without disabling first and it was smaller than the one used on Starkiller base.

    Starkiller Base isn’t a planet. It’s at best a small moon. Seriously, that thing is around 1200 KM at the circumference. Our moon is 6,780 KM at the circumference.

  17. Darth Starkiller January 2, 2016 at 10:17 am -      #17

    Where exactly are you getting that from?.

  18. Mecha Xtreme January 2, 2016 at 10:27 am -      #18

    When they compare the Starkiller Base to the Death Star. Someone in the internet roughly calculated the sizes, and it turns out the Starkiller Base is only around 10x bigger than the Death Star.

  19. Darth Starkiller January 2, 2016 at 10:46 am -      #19

    Which despite the often quoted figure of 160km many have scaled to be 900km.
    I’ll have to see The Force Awakens a few more times to be sure for myself.

  20. Jake_Uzumaki January 2, 2016 at 1:06 pm -      #20

    Disney canon outright states its a planet.
    “Deep in the Unknown Regions, the First Order has constructed a superweapon that uses an entire planet as its weapons platform. The deadly Starkiller harvests energy from its system’s star, contains it within magnetic fields inside its base’s planetary core, and then converts that energy into an ultra-powerful beam that blasts through hyperspace, able to sterilize the worlds of a distant star system with a single shot. The icy world that houses the Starkiller is the First Order’s greatest secret, and essential to its plan to conquer the galaxy.”

    From the new Disney Canon Databank.

    Here: hackaday.com/2015/12/22/the-scientific-implausibility-of-starkiller-base/
    According to the International Astronomical Union, it technically is, but it’s too small to actually be considered planet sized.

  22. Darth Starkiller January 2, 2016 at 7:58 pm -      #22

    Assuming the hologram scene was one to one accurate, which i kinda doubt
    since it has several moments where the scale seems off.
    But again i’ll have to see the movie some more to be absolutely sure.
