Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



An average battle, with a well designed set of missions, but somehow lacking a real plotline and hence losing the edge in experience immersion. However the dogfights are very fun to fly and features the Modified Gunboat. A good battle not to be missed.

The battle was great well worth flying # - although I did waste 1/2 hr looking for a patch called (Mike's GUN). I do wish people would use the same patch names as those in the 'Science office patch achive.'[Tactical Gunboat]

GN Abel Malik



An Interesting battle from the former TAC, but the M/Gunn patch acts up on occasion- if you see the M/Gunn in mission 4 with 0% shields uninstall the patch then reinstall- worked for me!

HA Frodo March



Great battle, it just lacks a bit of plotline for a 5 but the mission design is almost perfect. Magnifico!

Battle Bug Reports

In flight messages say a transport shows up, but is not visible within the playable space at all. It is a ship you are supposed to inspect yet you cannot do so if you cannot target it or see it. Mission 1. All patches installed, so unsure why I cannot see it.

Mission 4: In-flight message warning about rDB Missile Boats appears long before they launch.

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 2: CRS Warspite and FRG Gunners' flight paths cause them to fly 'through' each other.

Mission 3: rDB transports attack the player before the disguise is revealed.

	This battle is intended to be easy on easy level, but it can be hell on hard. So don't cry and become better player. Remember. XvT increases AI of all ships by 2 on hard, so it will not be easy. I'm not even sure if it's possible to complete all missions on hard, if it is but you must be really good.
