Battle Reviews

COL Triji Boliv



A long battle featuring the best ship in the fleet (I'm biased). I find it an extra layer of challenge when the enemy uses combined Imperial and Republic ships, as it makes it harder to identify friends and enemies by sight, and there was a fair bit of that in this battle.

A battle with potential to be good. On the 4th mission it was endless enemies and mines. On the final mission I got some kind of error where my transports wouldn't show up to capture. Very frustrating to dump a bunch of time in for the mission to be off.

CPT Solohan50



I played on Easy. This battle doesn't know if it wants to be long or short. Unfortunately, the long battles are typically only long because they throw hoards of starfighters at you. There was also a fair amount of waiting around for stuff to happen. I don't need to sit around for almost 3 minutes before the mission truly starts!

AD Phoenix Berkana



A fairly interesting battle, not overly taxing but it does involve a fair bit of dogfighting against alphabet fighters and older models such as Z-95s. A firm 4 in my books for its decent plot and good balance of action.

COL Genie



I kind of liked this one. It is not anything special but there isn't much wrong with it either. I hope at some point to refly it under a different set of circumstances. The storyline is ok, the briefing a bit lazy ;) but overall the missions themselves turned out ok. The last two missions are a bit longer than what most people desire.

COL Phalk Sturm



This one is long, but with a gripping plotline that deserves to be flown. You will encounter all kinds of enemies and the dogfighting is epic and well balanced. Chasing down traitors has become a recurrent issue amongst the imperial servicemen, but this one is special, as the story behind it touches all EH pilots who lived in the old days. An amazing battle that deserves to be played even if a bit long. You won't regret it

AD Hav Antiel



I was hoping the story was a little more present in these missions because I like learning about the history of the TIE Corps. Then again, I’m SPAMming through them, so maybe that’s not the best way to learn history. Nevertheless, the missions were pretty coherent, and Frey Gallandro did a nice job making sure your flight group’s role made sense in the overall scope of each mission.

well a good one

A nice set of missions, which are rather too easy at times. If you are newbe to XvT this battle would be a good first choice.
