Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



It started promisingly with a nice plotline and decent mission crafting. However it become very repetitive, and all along the assignments felt like a rolling deja-vu every time after the 2nd mission. Not a bad battle, but also there are many more out there to fly before this one.

FA Pickled Yoda



Well, everyone has to start somewhere. I'm sad to report that this is a pretty charmless battle. A message board run-on does not necessarily make for a great battle, and to make the most of it there should have been many more messages quoting the original... but it was lost to a crash and here we are. The before and after missions feel like padding and aren't given enough of a story. On the plus side, it's incredibly quick to fly on easy. On the negative side, there are plenty of silly orders and dodgy waypoints.

GN Anahorn Dempsey



It's a nice concept, but execution leaves a few things to be desired. the last two missions started with wingmen smashing into your cap ship, enemy ships have no orders, etc.

COL Rau Aznable



How cute. A battle from before Yoda got a huge sense of humor. It's a nice mixture of easy and hard missions. It features some nice action, but has a few flaws too, so it's like a 3+ or 3,5.

CM TK-9780



Battles are good and messy, the only downside is that AI craft orders seem rather haphazard. Still worth flying - be great battle when orders are finally sortied out

Battle Bug Reports

GN Dunta Polo


Briefings have been fixed but there are a slew of other problems with this battle.

Mission 2: FRG Vengeance fires on CRVs Donar.

Mission 4: EH craft start far too close to each other, causing collisions. X-Wing Red only attack TIE Interceptors, A-Wing Green only attack T/A Vortex.

Mission 5: ISD Grey Wolf has a patrol\\attack order with no targets. T/I Odin are set to attack installations and starships instead of starfighters. T/A

Crusader only attack Y-Wing Red. T/I Phoenix only attack X-Wing Eagle or A-Wing Green. X-Wing Eagle only attack TIE Interceptors. A-Wing Blue doesn't attack TIE Interceptors.

Mission 6: ISD Grey Wolf flies straight through ESC Corrupter.

GN Anahorn Dempsey


If someone has some spare time, adding some animated briefings to this wouldn't hurt.
