In Legends there are a number of different Sith ranks before Darth Bane's Rule of Two and I was curious as to how the different Sith ranks would compare to their counterparts. For example, how would a Jedi Knight compare to a Sith Warrior (and similar)?
I get the impression that the Sith were often weaker than their Jedi counterparts as suggested by this cinematic movie from SWTOR where the Sith warriors(?) are easily being attacked by non-force-sensitive republic troopers:
So how would Sith compare to their Jedi equivalent in terms of their skill and strength (e.g- would a Sith accolyte be as skilled and be able to defeat a Jedi padawan?)
