Battle Reviews

Ignoring the terrible, awful, no good bug - A pretty fun mission that, okay, a bit sloppy in some design choices, but does invoke a sense of real chaos as you try to mop up all the shuttles before they (seemingly randomly) decide to go home... provided you ignore the terrible, awful, no good bug...

Terrible, awful, no good bug alert: as previously mentioned, when only a Secret Order official is present, you only need to complete the secondary objectives! So you can completely undercut the point of this mission if you want to (or, also, get SUPER frustrated if you happen to do completely the primary objectives, but don't finish mopping up the Z-95s or X-Wings and complete the secondary objectives, earning a failed mission!) Just... try to pretend you have to do the primary objectives to get a feel for what the mission creator had intended... and make sure you do the secondary objectives too!

Straight arrow. Have to quickly destroy a lot of shuttles at the very beginning and there are some dubious orders, especially the corvettes who will blow each other up eventually if you let them. At some point, the shuttles even attacked the corvettes. Fly it for completion.

A decent mission, were it nor for a few major flaws. First off, no objection to Secret Order only missions. But when he tells you to assassinate some people by killing the frigate and shuttles, that should be the mission goal. Instead, you have to destroy a number of fighters. Seems the creator is unaware that in this scenario only secondary goals matter. And that means it's annoying when the game constantly tells you that you have lost the mission when you've actually won it.

Nice plot, a little bit tight craft spacing, but manageable.

A little on the difficult side. Nothing special.

Only a SO figure is present, so only the Secondary orders need to be completed for the mission to be finished. Definitely not what the creator intended. Primary orders should be shifted to Secondary orders; secondary orders should be shifted to Bonus
