Anyone agrees? Nonsensical and almost cartoonish to think the Imperial armies would agree both wittingly and unwittingly to destroy themselves and give over their power and control to rebels and other scum. Only Disney could come up with something that bonkers.

  • They probably realized too late that the Empire was still quite large even after Palpatine's death. They needed a way to make the Empire look like the underdogs for the next movie.

  • Why does this sound familiar? New expanded universe novel?

    Been out for quite a while, will also be featured in Battlefront 2.

    Essentially, Palpatine thinks the Empire was a failure if he died while ruling it, and orders high level officers to destroy certain worlds key to imperial dominance.

    Disney needed to replace the Empire with the First Order and couldn't come up with a good way. Istead of the Empire to pretending like it's falling apart and fighting amongs themselves for power and disappear until the First Order needed to make a surprise appearance, Palpatine just decides to destroy all the military strength, burn all the resources they've acquired and rebuild from scratch. High ranking officers would just call this a high level sabotage of their top databases by the Rebels in order to destroy the Empire from within and just ignore Operation Hot Steaming Bowl of Disaster.

    Ah okay thanks. Seems like something he would do
  • Why do people blame Disney for everything? Operation Cinder is great, there are way worse things in Legends.
    Army or not, you must realize....you are doomed.

    This seems a Darth Sidious sort of thing to do.

    To me, the idea that the Empire would fracture into several mini-empires makes more sense than the idea that the imperials would begin destroying everything they worked so hard to maintain just because Palpy said so.

    Why would the officers listen to him if he's dead and asking them to destroy themselves just because its a Sith thing to do. Even if he was alive and giving out the order, Imps would blow him to bits.

    Why would he tell the officers they were to lose.

    He was good at setting up the outcome of battles.

    He ran both sides of the Clone Wars and pulled Anakin from the battle if the Republic was to lose.

    Nah he couldn't set up the outcome of battles even if he coordinated them with rebels. A couple of suspicious defeats and the officers would figure out it's setups.

    They lost to a bunch of Teddy Bears armed with rocks and sticks.

    How much more suspicious could you get than that?

    The Imps though aren't all that shallow and predictable. The Empire can't operate that way and it wouldn't make them a worthy opponent. The Empire would analyze and react to anything that poses as a threat. Having said that, Operation Cinder would be undermined and shut down quickly and efficiently. On top of that, even if Palpatine was alive and himself giving orders, he would be destroyed before the Empire would be ordered to destroy itself.

    Palpatine wouldn't send out the orders if he was still alive.

    Wasn't their secret hologram recordings of the emperor to make them believe he was still alive!?
