Battle Reviews




This battle was...odd. To say the least. So I hadn't dealt with any battles with .wav files before, those worked as expected I think. The asteroid and the golden frg were not necessary at all. When I started flying this battle I thought something was wrong with my stick because it was just acting oddly, but I think it was the game having an issue with the asteroid pathing. No idea, but heads up on that. I can't really rate it lower, there's clearly a lot of work put in here, and it's not the worst to play - but it definitely doesn't deserve anything higher. Not these days. Play only if you've run out of things to do/are finishing the compendium/want to time travel to the TC in 2008.

Between Ender and Frodo we have all bases covered. This mission is just plain nuts. Shoot the moving asteroids. I dare you!

COL Phalk Sturm



Interesting mission for a GUN. Challenging yet very much completable. This is about disabling some Gunship while dogfighting her escort. Worth a try if you like GUNs in engaging missions.

Ok... Ender's voice is fine but Dempsey's voice has no soul and Tempest seems to have something to do with Micro$oft Voice (as RL itself xD). But wait! I'm only talking about the splendid voice addon that comes with the mission... The mission itself is very well done, fair challenging and funny, not to mention those moving asteroids which really are a cool addon improving the experience of actually being in the middle of an asteroid belt. Excellent work, MindBubble!! :D

Medals to be Awarded IS-GR for 1st, IS-SR for 2nd, IS-BR for third, with an extra special Golden Tug Award for the winner!  
Miscellaneous Information The Golden Tug Awards 2007 are coming this way! Soon, we will again choose the best and the 
worst mission/battle for each platform. But there is a major problem! The tugs are gone !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where oh where 
are the golden tugs???? You can answer this question in a FREE mission, platform of your choice. Where are the Golden Tugs? 
How do we get them back? All submissions to the TAC Office via e-mail. All submissions will be combined in a battle after 
the competition is over, and each entry will receive a MoT-gh as usual.

Story Line
The Golden Tug Awards get awarded annually by the Tactical Officer to the officers of the Emperor's Hammer that have 
demonstrated the best tactics in battle. The winners are decided by popular vote and they are awarded in various 
categories according to the importance and scale of the combat engagements. There is also a "Pinky Lollipop" for the 
worst tactician. 
The high-profile Award Ceremony is tomorrow but it seems that the Tactical Officer, Admiral Dempsey, has lost the Golden 
Tug statues... in a game of sabbac... to the Science Officer Ender mBind - who is enjoying some off time at a neutral 
platform in the Jeh'Ree System.
The Tactical Officer has taken direct control over the VSD Sinister and will retrieve the Golden Tugs with it.

GENERAL: You need XvT (or at least all the ships involved there) with EHSP and the two patches.
