Battle Reviews

MAJ Jaxx Nassin



This battle was frustrating. As an MP player, I found the final mission to be the worst design. A randomized TIE must be killed to progress the mission, which means A LOT of restarts based on RNG. And then if you don't know how to handle bombers, you'll be restarting the mission from failed objectives.

GN Silwar Naiilo



A battle with tricks from Frodo - including one mission that doesn't go quite as expected, and another that takes a bit of actual luck to complete (or maybe Force sensitivity?) Flying the TIE Praetor makes everything a piece of cake.

COL Phalk Sturm



Another good battle of Praetorians, and as FA Yoda cleverly stated, you get infected with the god complex of flying the god fighter. The missions are somehow average with some effortless dogfighting, and if you are unaware of the backstory in this battle, like myself, most of the fun is unreachable. Additionally last mission, although tricky, imposes quite an excessive waiting time, thus eroding some of the playing experience. Worth a try but one of the worst of this outstanding saga about Prae and the God Fighter.

FA Pickled Yoda



It's an okay battle but loses points for the second mission where you reenact an EH IRC meeting and the idea works about as well as you'd expect. The T/Pr is basically flying with god mode but that's balanced out because Praetorian squadorn is basically flying with annoying god complexes.

LC Gen Es'mith



Nice mission overall. TIE Praetor is a great fighter indeed.

FA Marcin Szydlowski



Tie Praetor rocks! It was my first time with this craft and it's really deadly. Battle itself is very intresting. It's a finest example of how you can turn simple change in command into very good story. :)

GN Abel Malik



Nice battle Frodo, well I'm slightly biased with you having included Prae in all the missions as well (and unlike some people used the T/Pr patch);p.
