Pink Lollipop 2007: worst XWA free mission of 2006

Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



The story is good/great, but the mission design is lacking. There is a bug in the design of mission 1 that can soft lock the mission (see my bug report) and in mission 5 you can have to wait around 5+ minutes after all enemies are dead for the convoy to hyper out and complete the mission and then in mission 6, the goal is to kill all the fighters and the first fighter you see is invulnerable and can't be killed, and then the next goal is to capture a capital ship. If you try to help take down the shields you can accidentally blow it up and lose. On easy the best bet is to point up, dump lasers into engines and just fly away and let the wingmen finish the mission on their own.

Fun battle with a few unique ships flown. The Planetary Fighter was a new experience, and the Escort Shuttle could have been fun, but there wasn't much to do in that mission. Missed opportunity.

COL Phalk Sturm



This battle is full of action and some easy missions, balancing the whole thing. You get to fight a good portion of the campaign in the awful Planetary Bucket, sorry, Fighter. However the battle is very immersive and challenging. A good one to fly, especially for those who like and to mash-up everything. Not to miss this one.

A solid battle, hat tip for the storyline however flying the planetary fighter was just awful :P

And yeah, could use cleaning up in briefings and things to make it clear whats going on - in the last battle I was wondering why ships were changing sides, heh

Well, it's not THAT hard if you just want to complete objectives and go home...but if you're looking for scores. Planetary Fighter is terrible...gladly, you fly it only once :P

This battle is from the stuff the crazyness is made of!! Despite it's very interesting and intense its mad creator put so many fighters there, especially in the first two missions that if you MANAGE to vape almost all them in any of those (hard as hell) you get about 30,000 points there and that's just not healthy! xD Not necessary to mention that it makes horrible to go for the highest scores. And then, somebody should make clear what is the "good" buoy in mission 4 (Ka'Tal base) in order to see some action. And last but not least: some stupid bug in last mission makes some enemy fighters to turn friendly and invincible when you shoot at them (at least it happened to me); add that to the neverending tug docking operations and... pfffft :P

This is an alright xwa battle, and worth flying; however, it could have been designed better.

So So battle. The whole imperium thing is nice but, the battle itself is average. And I had mission 6 high score for about a minute :)

GN Master



I wasn't impressed. Average.

Battle Bug Reports

CM Jagged Fell III


Mission 1: It is possible to soft lock the mission if you are too quick in destroying the enemy as the triggers REQUIRE one of your laser batteries to be destroyed to advance the mission.

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 1: Asteroid Laser batteries move around like starships. Message 'All forces withdraw...' has an extra (redundant) word on the end. Mission 2: Hyperion is spelled 'Hyperium' in the briefing. Mission 5: T/Is do not return to the VSD Guardian at the end of the mission. MOB TRH 7 does not hyper out, instead flying in circles. Mission 6: IFF of surrendering pirate fighters does not change, so they are still fired upon (although the author set them to invincible). INT Restrainer has no orders. EH Gunboats attack some supplies before they are captured.

MAJ Wondra


If you get shot down after completing the mission goals, the game lets you go to the next mission, but the commanding officer complains that the BFS program says "Wrong number of missions flown"
