The missions in this battle are decent... but you'll fly them multiple times each. More than half of the missions are almost exact copies of the rest, this makes for an incredibly repetitive and tedious battle to fly.
My fifty-fifth battle in the TIE Corps.
This is a mixed bag of a battle ... Being 20 missions long it has some pretty nice fights followed by some filler missions. Could have definitely been cut down or split into separate battles but overall it wasn't horrible. Just a major time commitment.
This one was okay - for the point of spamming some missions up for RTF it worked well. Some of the battles were just exact copies of previous battles, so that made it a little bit less fun to play overall.
This was not, strictly speaking, a bad idea or setting. Just if you're going to repeat a kind of mission over and over from different perspectives, the missions need to have some level of complexity or at least a perspective change with reasonable differences. You get neither here, and basically in effect, it's just flying the same mission over and over. If it wasn't for RtF? No way.
Nice idea, but it could be a lot more fun if you didn't have to fly lots f missions several times because mission X is a copy of mission Y.
How to make a CAB battle ??? Design one mission, copy it, and in each put player in different craft... You should now get a picture how this battle looks. Or fighting solo 8 squadrons of fighters in 3 mission in row ?!?. That's ridicoulus... 2 for no bugs and FCHG points.
I could not really stand this battle. It was the same mission over and over. I killed the same ship four diff. times. It went on and on. Gets a one for no bugs.
bleh, I felt like I was in the TC's version of "Groundhog day" in a starfighter;p.
If you can force yourway through it, its worth the FCHG points. Gets a 1 cause i didnt see any bugs.
This battle was one of the most boring I have ever flown. It is essentially flying the same mission over again and again with different player craft. If it were up to me, this battle would be removed from the listings.
give the man a break. This is a good concept, but it could be much more fun if you got the Dragon on more missions.
This battle had good plotline, good ambientation, so what shocked me was how robbed I felt when I flew a few missions. Same stuff (literally) repeated over and over again, only the names change. It was easy to come up with a battle with +20 missions. Just clone them!
Yes this battle is repetetive and yes it IS long. But is an excellent opportunity to train for both new AND seasoned pilots. It trains patience, dogfighting and consistency. There ARE not may other battles able to do this
The only reason I am even giving this battle a 1 is that the creator found an original idea to the battles of repeating them over and over from different points of view. Other than that, there were about 4 different battles throughout the entire thing. There were 2 patches, but they were used only once each. Overall I think this was a terrible battle and don't understand how it was approved. Don't fly this battle!
This is pretty much the same mission played over and over again. It is not all that great.
This mission was great the first time I played it, but after flying it a dozen or so times, it wasn't so great anymore. What a cheap way to make a battle, you act all cool and release a 20 mission battle, but it's 3 missions repeated over and over with different ship names. What a jip, though the 20 points was kinda cool to get, it's not worth the pain and anguish I suffered flying this stinker.
This was possibly the worst battle ive ever flown. You fly the same battle like, what, 5 or 6 times? Maybe your in a MB instead of a TD, or have different wingmates, but ultimately, you have the same goal and same enemies. It just was horrible. Of course, thats just my opinion.
It wasn't a war, or a battle, it was nothing more than trivial mission after repeat mission. If it takes squad after squad to destroy the same ships over and over again, then it's not worth the time. Even if it is a Combined Battle, please find some change in the mission structure and settings.
... The 2 is respect for having the infinite patience to put together and playtest such a massively repetative series of missions. I sure didn't have the patience to finish after hitting that one bug around Mission 13 that forced me to fly the same exceptionally long boring mission, thus screwing up my points... :(
This is an extremely bad battle! The worst I've ever flown actually. The only upside is that it's bug free, but hey...you can find better bug free battles than this!
God, like 2 different missions through that whole 20 missions?
I agree with Wlodek.......Same mission 20 times????????? I think not.
Fly thesame mission 20 times? No thank you.
Once I figured out one mission, i had a dozen done too... A little to repetative but fun none the less, and great for FCHG points... The creators deserve respect for putting something that long together!!
Very repetitive, doing nearly every mission twice gets quite boring. It does follow a structured plot and is good for adding 20 more FCHG points.
This is an excellent, bug-free battle(a 20 mission bug free battle is rare :P). The only downside is that alot of the missions are simply copies of previous ones with different ship names. Other than that, this is an excellent battle!
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
