Battle Reviews

LC andr3



A pain. The first mission is one of those were you have to fail first (or study the mission in YOGME in advance) to know what you have to do. Upon mission start immediately transfer all energy to engines. Else you have no chance to catch the shuttle that you're supposed to id (which noone tells you) - even though it hasn't even arrived yet. The following missions continue in that manner and are rather uninsprired.

That was fairly nice battle to play. It has quite nice story and progression. The only real thing I didn't like about it were the endless waves of X-Wings and A-Wings in mission 1, which otherwise proved to be quite a short one. Stil it was quite nice one to fly.

FA Brukhar



Great battle and really tough. Only loses a point cuz the first mission is really annoying, and cuz the B-W sucks to fly. :P

HA Ender mBind



Good stuff, especially in making a fully EH storyline in X-W. Pretty challenging for X-W as well.:)

Plotline.doc is mearly an overview of each mission I used as an outline, and is not a completely
accurate depiction of the battle as I did change some elements as I began work on it

GA Ronin is making his annual inspections of various ships in the Emperor's Hammer Fleet. His current
schedule leads him to the ISD Immortal, to inspect the ship as well as evaluate the performance of
it's new Commodore, RA Locke Stzer. However, things go terribly wrong when Ronin's ship is brought out
of hyperspace too far away, and soon the pilots of the Immortal find themselves in a operation that to
fail could potentially mean the death of their leader by the hands of the treacherous Renegade Dark

Note: This was designed as a FCHG battle. As a result, the missions are designed to be challening. If you have problems with these missions, but wish to complete the battle, feel free to email me at kevinsetzer@aol.com and I'll see if I can't help you out with some hints and/or tips :)
