Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



This one felt interesting at the very start, but as the battle unfolds, it is the same repetitive mission over and over again. Besides, mission 3, pits 4 T/As vs 8 waves of consecutive X-Ws armed with advanced torpedoes. Needless to say, the ISD Intrepid sinks every time, and reappears in the last mission?. The missions are the usual kill'em all while being severely outnumbered. Only the last mission, about capturing a space platform, really made me enjoy, this otherwise, boring battle. Fly elsewhere.

This is CM Phantom's first and only custom battle, and I'm afraid it shows while you're flying it. The missions are repetitive, and ships that you’ve destroyed in the previous mission show up to be destroyed again in the next. Is that a bug? Probably not, because that’s the basis of the first three missions.

HA Pete Mitchell



That was the longest and most repetitive 4 missions I've ever flown. Just hours of kill everything.

HA Anahorn Dempsey



This battle has a weak storyline, with basically every mission being the same with a small addition. Rebel CRS there, loads of fighters, destroy everything. The PLT capture in M4 is different, but that's all about it.

LCM Luca Fett



I am all for difficult battles and missions, but this one goes a little too far, especially considering that, because you are given a nice ship to fight in, the enemy is not so difficult to destroy, the difficult part of the battle tends to be the MESSY Capital Ship AI... in mission two, the cruiser rams the star destroyer, which is not a nice tactical move on behalf of either to let this happen. Its very engaging, and my review score would have been higher it if wasnt because of the fact that this can screw up a whole mission only because the rebel's feel a little suicidal.

Battle Bug Reports

HA Anahorn Dempsey


Plenty of stuff needs fixin' here: in M1 and 2, the mission goals need looking at since there's dupes (maybe M3 and M4 as well). In M2, Intrepid has no orders, in M3 the Intrepid is destroyed even though it shows back up in M4. Saving Intrepid is not a goal, which is a good thing since it's utterly impossible, even on easy with that many X-wings and torpedoes flying around. In M4, both enemy CRS collide because their flightplans collide and the battle is 2D. PLT Iota has no orders. And in M1 or M2, the enemy CRS collides with your mothership while trying to escape.

Mission Discription
Mission One
     The ISD-II Intrepid has just finished going through a routine maintenance check-up at repairyard Alpha.  The Intrepid has been ordered to a nearby sector to investigate reportings of Rebel activity along the TC border.

     Where the repairyard is close to the TC border, your mission is to make sure the Intrepid safely leaves the area.  Protect the Intrepid at all cost!

Mission Two
     The Intrepid has arrived at it's destination.  Initial investigation of this sector has revealed no signs of Rebel activity.  The intrepid is waiting for a patrol to return from the outlying area with any information they may have collected.  Could the Intrepid be flying into a trap?  Or was the call some kind of joke?

Mission Three
     The data collected from the outlying area showed positive Rebel activity.  An outpost has been constructed, and a small attack force is building up.  The Intrepid is awaiting reinforcement from the ISD Greywolf before going in to clean up the mess the Rebels have created.

Mission Four
     With the arrival of the Greywolf, we can now proceed to hinder any plans the Rebels may have had for this area.  Time to give the Rebels a lesson for invading our territory.
