Golden Tugs 2006: best XvT battle of 2005
Decent battle, mostly about dogfighting in T/As or T/Is and bombing in the rustproof everlasting War Mule. The plotline is not extraordinary but works out to immerse the player in the campaign. The missions themselves are well-balanced and can be challenging at times. A good battle, worth some honest work's FCHG points. Give it a try.
Another funny mission set, these are literally my favorites. Some of the missions are fast and fairly fun to play. For me the dialogue and the way they are designed is the best part. I enjoyed the final mission and last little bit because it really defines how missions with humor can be fun and enjoyable and we don't have to live in just the milsim life.
A stranger battle thats for sure. I played this one on easy and you were never in too much danger other than the final mission where you are on your own against a squadron of missile happy A-Wings. As long as you can shoot down some of the missiles you'll be fine though. A firm 4 in my books
I played on Easy. This was another set of quick missions. There's not much to say about this besides that. I don't remember a whole lot about them because I blinked and they were over. They were decent enough to play, but don't go out of your way unless you need points.
Decent battle and relatively grounded for a Frodo battle. Maybe he was feeling unwell when he created this one. Be ready to utilize Y-Wings and Gunboats to their strengths and remember you have ... wingmen. Use them wisely in the way only the J button can do.
For some reason I had a hard time getting the 2nd mission to work, it would start but if I hit the target nearest enemy key or waited 11 seconds, it would crash XvT, I re-installed the EHSP (after trying other options) and it worked fine again. I'm guessing the EHSP wasn't fully installed and the gun battery was messing with the setup. Overall decent battle.
Good collection of missions creating an overall good battle. I like this though I have to admit being a trifle confused by the Cadet Doomsday reference until the very end. It's serious with a bit of humor and it makes sense which is all I ask for in a battle. Y-Wings vs T/A was fun, not! <-: Good stuff and easy to see why it won the Golden Tug.
Great battle with plenty of opportunities to go for the highscores if you know how and have the patience to try! The difficulty is very high (even insane) in some of the missions as the third, while in the rest you'll be fine and safe if you play your cards well. Oh, and flying Y-Wings against T/As is not sooo difficult; their linked lasers are the most and the flares do their work. Nice missions and briefings too. Word!
A good battle with some fun flying and fighting throughout. Flying Y-wings is good fun too for a change. Seeing Cadet Doomsday at the end sure makes it worthwhile too ; )
This battle is not an easy battle, but it is a very good one! Even tho we have to fly an Y-Wing to kill T/As, I give it a five, because I think some tactic issue was considered by the creator when giving us 6 Y-Wings to fight it...I'll say no more ;)
Not really a big fan of this one. I have no problem flying a y-wing, but trying to shoot down tie advanced in them just plain blows. Seemed to me like the last two mission were kinda phoned in, they didn't seem to flow with the rest of them.
History, gotta love it. Alot of fun to fly and missions were well done. Great job on this one. Loved being the one to kill the NR-TAC and all and killing those A-wings.
This battle covers some history of the former GN Nightmare of AeS & has some good diverse space combat in the missions. Though flying y-wings to disable the ISD Greywolf was the low-point of the battle for me (sorry, I just don't enjoy flying slow moving rebel bombers with a large target profile):p. Also, has a few cignature Frodo humor bits here & there. Overall, it's worth taking the time to fly.
Cadet Doomsday had it comming...
So-so at best. The plot was pretty much pointless, and CT Doomsday had nothing really to do with anything at all. Kinda just seemed like Frodo planned to make a battle about AES, hit a huge case of writer's block, and ended it that way. And boo for flying Y/Ws. :P
Very interesting mission, and a nice Poltline to boot.. Some good twists :) One of your better battles frodo, though I miss the old INT Shire series...
Strange plotline, interesting missions. What else do we need? ;)
It is an alright mission. Odd that the hardest one doesn't even involve Avenger. Also, why does CT Domesday just appear in the very last mission? I'm sure this is some odd led in to a sequel or just Frodo messing with people (since when has a Frodo battle ever made sense anyway?). Good humor though. I do like the line "That was an odd mission. Frodo must have made it."
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
