Battle Reviews

CM Benji Tandor



Complete lack of craft variety and interminable wait times on the second mission knock this battle down a few pegs.

My eightieth battle in the TIE Corps.

MAJ Colo Delste



A fun Infiltrator Wing battle about getting a new base. Briefings were not always the most useful in letting you know what needed doing. Mission 2 also took 40 mins to complete as the friendly Y-Wings and CRS couldn't hit the broadside of a CORT (that eventually made it to hyperspace), so a couple points knocked off for that.

COL NiksaVel



Flew this for the Remob4 competition on hard. It was not too hard and fun to fly. There were some issues on mission 2, I believe it was simply tested only for medium – should be fixed. The last mission is strange - completely outside the plotline, like it was just pasted there by accident. Still fun to fly.

AD Stryker



It's...not great, but not terrible either. Missions 1, 3 and 4 are simple and enjoyable. Mission 2 is similarly simple but takes 30 minutes to complete. If this mission could be edited to be half the time, this would probably be worth a 4 rather than the 3 I've given it.

COL Rau Aznable



A poor battle. The way everything is organized, the triggers, the long waits, the 3rd mission can be completed without even fighting... I would give it a 1 if it wasn't for some nice close combat scenes in the last mission. This is the kind of battle that makes me wanna be a TAC tester just to prevent these things from being released like this.

Mission 2 playing on hard: the ATR's will not launch until everything is disabled. I had to destroy one of the container transports because it was out of range of the Fear's ions. The hillarious part is that the pirate CORT can not be disabled. Three Y-W from Shadow keep shooting ions at it, but by 40:00 in mission it they managed to score 6 hits getting systems to 70% it's hilarious. Must be stormtroopers piloting.

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 1: Objective shows as complete when only 70% of freighters have been inspected. Mission 2: Long wait times. X-Wing Ares Global Unit designation needs fixing. X-W Black\Ares sometimes crash into static objects during their patrol. Mission 4: CRS Renegade and Warspite do not fire on attacking pirate fighters. CRS Renegade leaves before all transports are on board.
