    Dragon is one of my favourite characters but the RA have been really really underwhelming, only Dragon has a strong presence.


    What was the point of that BB incident???It did nothing in the story at all except for a cool fight which we wil never see because Oda off panels the best.

    All other groups have been getting hype apart from Marines and Yonko: CP0, WG, Gorosei, Wano army, Elbaf army and heck even the warlords with flippin Buggy part of it. The RA are not even in the top 5 strongest rightnow.

    They need a W now to make there presence felt as one of the top players.

    Imo they need to have a NO.1 that between Sabo and Dragon who is the FM of the RA. I still believe in it as Dragon has never referred to as "no.1 of the RA".

    They cant just have Dragon carry them on his back all the time.

    The Revs had already left Baltigo by the time the BB Pirates arrived, their was no fight between them.

    Sabo is number 2 to Dragon. Better just accept it. They'll be getting their much needed W this arc.

    The revos don't need a W when they already have loads under their belt for freeing people.

    That's because he's the son of Garp and father of Luffy so we're naturally engaged with his character and want to know more about him. If he was some unknown cat he'd probably get the same reactions from people that the rest of the new RA got, especially since he's the only one that still hasn't done anything on panel.

    Maybe a symbolic gesture telling us that revolutionaries will no longer remain stagnant and finally be making the bigger moves that they weren't capable of making before, which we're now seeing with the infiltration of the reverie.

    The RA isn't meant to be regarded as one the strongest organizations, that's why they never engaged with the marines or wg forces head on. They excel at guerrilla tactics to liberate countries that's why despite their underwhelming power they still managed to become the WG's greatest enemy.

    Thats what this arc is for.

    As for a number 2 below Dragon and above Sabo.... I’ve come to terms with Sabo being 2 as dissapointing as it is.

    The baltigo beat down was one of the dumbest things ive seen tbh. Burgess after he got his ass beat randomly manages to escape from Sabo & Dragon and they arent even concerned. Nice CoO nerds.

    We can't know for sure. Besides, how did Dragon know that BB is coming? Because he couldn't know that Burgess found them.

    I'm assuming the Revs information network is top fucking tier. It's how despite not being as powerful as an organization as the WG or Yonko, they've managed to elude capture.

    And who ever said that Revos are a super strong fighting group for you to be dissapointed that actual fighting groups have a better battle hype?

    He held his own against Fuji easily destroyed Burgess and Bastille. Maybe people just conflate him with Ace

    Yet they had the good sense to leave before BB got there and someone coincidentally informed CP0 about the Baltigo whereabouts. If Dragon is as cunning as I think he is, he wanted to set a trap.

    This. I think people are expecting Revos to match the entire WG military including Marines head on or something.
    It's a revolution, not an invasion, it relies on gathering support of people and institutions and undermining the ruling class so that the Tenryuubito are overthrown by the very kingdoms and people that consitute he WG. It's not about taking on 4 Admirals + entire Marine military + Kong + CP0 + Pacifista army + whatever else on a fistfight.

    Personally my disappointment with Sabo is in two parts and neither has to do with strength:

    i) He is an obvious attempt at recreating Ace. Oda doesn’t even hide it by giving him the Mera fruit. He just doesn’t feel like a unique entity anymore.

    ii) And the second reason and I’m sure this is why most people are not happy with Sabo being the no.2 of Revos, is that Dragon has been out on the seas for a such a long time. Roger had Rayleigh, Shanks has Beckman, Whitbeard had Marco etc. People(myself included) were expecting a long term friend, partner in crime who’s been with Dragon from the very start. I know Kuma and Ivankov are shown to be those guys. But Ivankov doesn’t fit the bill of a right hand man for most people and Kuma does(for me atleast) but he hasn’t been with Dragon with for a long time now. In short, most of us were expecting to see a new and unique character to be Dragon’s right hand rather than Sabo. It just makes the whole thing look cheap as if enough thought wasn’t put into it. Sabo has a presense of his own no doubt but he will never have that Beckman/Rayleigh type presense.

    RA has no L on their record.
    This is only in your head.
    At this moment RA is as strong as any Yonkou crew and unlike most Yonkou crew it is still growing in power. You know Sabo will one day be solid Admiral level making RA the only other organization other than WG in world which has two Admiral level characters in it. Then there is Kuma who without a doubt will receive huge power up by Vegapunk bumping him to Cracker to Katakuri level.
    We still have Iva and other 4 commanders whose strength in unknown at this moment.
    So the idea that RA is weak is nonsensical and outright wrong.
    Do you consider Strawhats weak?
    They are weaker than any Yonkou crew by quite margin. But we don't care about that because we know that strawhats will become extremely strong one day. Same logic applies to RA.
    As for RA Vs BB is concerned. It was to show how RA operate. Dragon unlike most of the OL is not powersexual and does not fight just to prove tier lists. He had no profit in fighting BB pirates. So he left base with his people. That shows Dragon has brain. I don't see how in the world you see that as L.

    If Lebron could carry a team to the NBA Finals, I don't see why Dragon can't carry the Revos.

    They dont need to prove anything to you buddy. They arent playing silly pirate games like your low iq younkou. They are making the biggest move yet made in one piece, and that is overthrowing the world power establishment. They want the ultimate power...the ultimate freedom...and that is governing the world...making its laws.

    Btw, Dragons #2 guy has more potential than anyones #2 besides maybe Luffys

    Blackbeard went to Baltigo to get information and weapons. He left empty handed his consolidation being destroying a base which Revs no longer deemed worthy. This isn't even considering Sabo flamed Burgess. Straight cooked him like he was fodder status. Dragon was in no position to start fighting some Yonko when he's got a Reverie to crash & needs him generals to be tip top.

    They lost a base but they clearly don't give a damn about it when they have places all over the world to locate too.

    Blackbeard would have suffered heavy losses, if he confronted Dragon and Sabo normally. I dont think they fought (extensively)

    It does not matter if someone gives a damn about their loss. A loss is a loss. Point is they lost it without putting up a fight.
