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.

GN Pete Mitchell



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

GN 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.

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.

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.
