This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament has returned, and all eyes will be on Yoda, who be looking to repeat as champion. Last year, the Grand Master of the Jedi Order defeated Darth Vader in the finale by a 3:2 margin (60%) of votes. The loss for Vader didn’t sit well with a lot of Star Wars fans, and was deemed an upset by many after watching him cruise through the Dark Side conference.

For this year’s tournament, both Yoda and Vader will be squaring off against old foes and some new faces as well. The action started yesterday with Attack of the Play-Ins, in which four Star Wars characters will have to win a spot in the tournament.

Last year, we at handicapped the bracket and are back to offer some insight on the opening weekend.

Let the Madness begin!


Tough Talk from a Jedi Master in This Is Madness


A narrow victory for a princess over her mother. Best (droid) friends torn apart. And a Sith Lord commanding citizens to support him via holographic transmission. This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament has featured many intriguing storylines, and with today’s start of Duel of the Eights, the conference semi-finals, more epic battles are coming.

Vaunted Jedi Master Yoda takes on Obi-Wan Kenobi today, but has already defeated two tough opponents, including his pupil, Luke Skywalker, a.k.a. the galaxy’s new hope. The Emperor’s “little green friend” is very satisfied with his victory, it seems.

Demanding a Recount: Why Lando Deserved Better in This Is Madness

Reese Waters | April 2, 2013

What if I told you a man piloted the Millennium Falcon through the second Death Star and (along with Wedge Antilles) destroyed the Empire’s ultimate weapon?

What if I told you the same man surrendered the Cloud City sabacc card game tournament, knowing his friend Han Solo would need the battered Millennium Falcon?

What if I told you the same man was the first to infiltrate Jabba’s palace in the rescue mission to save Han Solo and remained the only one to keep his cover?

What if I told you the same man introduced Colt 45 and lustrous moustaches to the Rebel Alliance?

Only to be eliminated in the very first round of the Star Wars This Is Madness tournament by the very man he risked his life to save — Han Solo.

Let Ahsoka Win!

Wow! I am so excited that Ahsoka made it to the Sixteen Strikes Back round! Thank you to everyone who voted last week but now she REALLY needs your help because this IS madness! The fact that Ahsoka is up against Chewbacca in this March Madness competition makes me a little mad because I LOVE Chewbacca! However, after having a chance to chat with Chewbacca at WonderCon this past weekend, we brokered a deal and agreed that Ahsoka should win this one ;o)
