Canonicity[]

According to the gameplay videos that were posted, half way through the tutorial, the play can choose to align with either the Rebels or the Empire. How to we treat each "decision", and the events afterward? Are they still considered canon? Are they treated differently? --Dentface (talk) 00:20, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Unless a game guide says so or we are otherwise informed, both campaigns would be considered canon. Which means we may have to generalize information or just add the "gamemechanics" tag. Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 00:56, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
    • Recently, there has been talk that the game is and isn't canon. Should this still be listed under "Canon", or should it be shifted to "Legends"? I'm guessing that what they meant by that statement was that the events and locations are canonical, but the user-based content (like the player-vs-player function) isn't canon. Jotaro Kenshiro (talk) 06:26, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
      • We can't just mark anything that's not canon going forward as "Legends," that doesn't make sense. "Legends" is a brand, a marketing term, it doesn't apply to material such as this. We should just use tags to mark information that's not considered canon as such. And what about things like characters? For example, Saponza is a new character that we can consider canon, but if we were to add anything to his article about his actions following say, joining up with either the Rebellion or the Empire, then that's the sort of thing that would have to be marked. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:22, August 23, 2014 (UTC)
        • ( Apparently this game is confirmed to be non-canon, according to a TFN writer transcribing a comment by one of the game's creators at an event: ".@BlueJaigEyes asks why this game isn't considered canon. Fillbrandt says player choice means morphing of story beyond LFL's control." Is there a policy in place for non-canon elements introduced post-new canon, or does it all fall under Infinities? —Milo Fett[Comlink] 18:04, March 24, 2015 (UTC)
          • "Infinities" is a marketing term, same as "Legends" is and I don't think it should ever be applied to anything that isn't specifically labeled as Infinities. In fact, I can't recall seeing the term "Infinities" ever being used since the new canons started. If it is truly non-canon, then it can be labeled as "non-canon in the new Canon continuity," like Star Wars Epic Yarns. ProfessorTofty (talk) 20:16, April 1, 2015 (UTC)
            • It seems like that tweet is referring to choices the players make in the game itself, such as choosing to join either the Rebellion or the Empire or whether to use 80 stormtroopers in a battle instead of two AT-ATs and a Royal Guard. Those outcomes, of course, are outside of the Story Group's control and so they don't count it. But I don't think that means that the characters/units/etc. themselves would be non-canon. That Jennica Pierce and Kosh were both on Tatooine after the Battle of Yavin would be canon; the final outcome of their campaigns against each other would not. Operative lm (talk) 04:20, April 5, 2015 (UTC)
  • It would seem to me that there are both canon and non-canon elements of the game. Another section of this discussion confirms that Saponza and Saponza's partner (the player) align with the Rebellion in the canon storyline. Expanding on this further, it can be inferred that the missions in the Rebel campaign are canon, as are the forces provided to the player by Jennica Pierce. I wouldn't put this in the article, though, since this inference relies upon only a single source.Shayn Mikel (talk) 10:10, December 2, 2016 (UTC)
    • Update: It seems that the "single source" is the official Databank. Very credible. Also: while the forces provided to the player by Pierce are canon, the forces trained and deployed by the player are non-canon, as are the specific order of the targets they choose. However, since canon storylines within video games always assume 100% game completion on the canonical path, we know that all missions resulted in the 100% damage to the enemy targets.Shayn Mikel (talk) 10:16, December 2, 2016 (UTC)

Fix the links on this article[]

Someone needs to fix the links, such as this article has a z95 headhunter link but it doesn't lead to the article on the z95. I would do it but I don't have any experience with said action. Unsigned comment by Multiman2 (talk • contribs).

  • The redlink means the article hasn't been created yet. We have yet to create an article for the canon version of the Z-95. I'm sure someone will create it in the future. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 19:33, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
    • what about the armored assault tank-1 which has both a cannon and a legends article but still appears as a red link. Multiman2 (talk) 19:54, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

Source 8[]

That video reference is dead as a door-nail. Alt? --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 02:44, October 6, 2014 (UTC)

YT-2400[]

Sorry if I'm not doing something right, this is my first post in Wikia. Just wanted to point out that there is no mention of any YT-2400 light freighters in the Appearances section of this article. I'd like to show you a screenshot I took on my iPhone that clearly shows such a vessel, but as this is my very first post; Wikia won't allow me to put an external link. I'm somewhat unsure as to how to prove this. Any ideas?. Best Regards. --Ejgisbertm (talk) 03:24, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

  • Hello! You seem to be doing fine so far, no worries. The problem isn't so much that the ship's not there; it definitely is. It's that, to my knowledge at least, there isn't a Canon source that identifies that model of ship as a YT-2400, and we would have to wait until it is identified before we could make a /Canon page for it, per the notability policy. Operative lm (talk) 03:50, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
    • Ah! I get it. Although the visual likeness of the ship is that of a certain model, there is no written evidence anywhere in the game where it specifies unequivocally that it is a YT-2400. Ok, then I'll keep an eye for any update to the game in case it ever mentions the class by name. Thanks for clearing that up for me! --Ejgisbertm (talk) 12:26, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

Rename is false[]

The game's title has not been changed. The official announcement on StarWars.com calls it a "big update", and in no way references a change in the title, still calling it simply "Star Wars: Commander". Secondly, in the actual game there is no change to the logo, with it still reflecting the original title. --Dentface (talk) 00:35, July 22, 2015 (UTC)

  • The name has changed to this the app store. Sorry for the confusion, though as this is chapter two, the page should be updated to reflect the fact that the story has moved forward. - AV-6R7 (talk) 00:38, July 22, 2015 (UTC)
    • No problem. I tagged the original page with the speedy deletion template so it can be moved back. :)--Dentface (talk) 00:39, July 22, 2015 (UTC)

Saponza and Friends canonically Rebels[]

In Kekit's Databank entry, it's written that Saponza and his partner played an integral part in the campaign that liberated a Jawa clan from the Tusken. It also says that said plan was orchestrated by Jennica Pierce of the Rebel Alliance. It looks like that the Rebel storyline is the canonical one. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:15, September 28, 2015 (UTC)

  • I checked all the Commander DB entries and couldn't find anything contradicting this. Seems like the canonical storyline is the Rebels one. Cevan (talk) 20:25, September 28, 2015 (UTC)
    • This will be very helpful when writing Commander-related articles. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:34, September 28, 2015 (UTC)

2.1 Page created Based on my personal experience with this game.[]

Types of ships you get with your Unit Transport[]

If you pick the Empire for this game, this is the list of ships you get with the Unit Transport.

Levels 1 to 3: Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle. Levels 4 to 6: Sentinel-class landing craft with tall cargo compartment. Levels 7 to 9: Gozanti-class freighter.

One question[]

Why is this considered canon? I think this would fit under the Legends, but I don't know. Jfgoofy (talk) 13:09, December 26, 2015 (UTC)

  • It's canon, as indicated by the fact that the ongoing StarWars.com official databank has entries for various characters and places featured in that game. --LelalMekha (talk) 13:47, December 26, 2015 (UTC)

Campaign[]

Are people allowed to post videos to YouTube walkthroughs in the articles? I've never seen anyone do it before, however someone has posted a campaign walkthrough video at the "Campaign" part of the article. --LoLuX12 (talk) 20:30, February 24, 2016 (UTC)

  • Nice job spotting those. We normally don't allow that sort of thing for two main reasons: We only include official (non-fan made) information, and we don't act as a game guide. Cheers, Corellian PremierJedi symbolThe Force will be with you always 01:06, February 25, 2016 (UTC)

Imperial loader shuttles?[]

I see that a canon version of the Imperial loader shuttle has been added to the appearances. Since I play rebels in the game, it can't check whether it's true. Can anyone confirm? Even better, can anyone take a screenshot? --LelalMekha (talk) 10:56, September 29, 2016 (UTC)

  • Try looking up some YouTube gameplay videos. You're practically guaranteed to find some.Shayn Mikel (talk) 08:30, December 18, 2016 (UTC)

Battle droids[]

Can anyone provide where it is that they found the B1 battle droid sentinels, oppressors, B2 sentinels, oppressors? I can't seem to find that anywhere in any forum or online site, and I can't find it in the game. Thanks.--Vitus Infinitus (talk) 14:11, December 8, 2017 (UTC)

Limited edition units section[]

The section labeled as such seems to be unnecessary and not in tune with the manual of style. I'm thinking we should remove it. Yo.-User:Fan26 (Talk) 18:27, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

Chiss?[]

Are the female mercenaries really Chiss? Maybe more likely Pantorans/Wroonians? I think Chiss are really rare in the known Galaxy. In addition, the eyes look more purple then red to me, if you zoom in. ~~DreaSan~~

Anybody else?[]

Does anybody else miss this game? I played it with my dad and it was one of the best mobile games I've played. RIP
