I don’t know if I’m somehow playing this one differently than other people, but I’m getting an entirely different experience with this mission. I’ve tried it a couple of times. When the FRGs get under threat, they never launch any kind of shuttle as suggested, so the entire secondary goal stack cannot be completed. The Avenger and assorted missile boats do not show up until you destroy one of the FRGs. After the missile boats appear, they lawn-dawn themselves straight into the side of the remaining FRG, leaving you and whatever wingmen you’ve got around to destroy it with lasers.
I finally gave up getting any kind of decent score on this one.
Spam fly review: who knows what this is about. Upon arrival, there's a friendly INT. Aha, we think. It must be pulling things out of hyperspace for me to kill. I hope they are not too staggered. Indeed, they are not. After 3 or 4 minutes, there are two frigates and some freighters to kill. Enough rockets applied quickly to the problem areas will prevent pesky fighters from launching. Great success.
Another solid classic. This one is much trickier than the previous of the series, but having the T/D at your disposal makes everything silk-smooth and pleasantly challenging. Everything looks better inside the cockpit of the Defender. Another classic mission for pure condensed fun.
Much tougher than the first two missions and much more enjoyable.
The interdictor is under threat and need to be fast destroying all the fighters which are threatening it. Without spoiling it, in general you need to be on your toes and be sure to destroy the enemy ships ASAP.
It is clear, on his third attempt of a mission he is getting significantly better at it! :)
Actually, I loved this! You get to see the SSD: Avenger, you get to optionally kill the FRGs assisting Gamma and lots of fighters to shoot down as well as some CRVs. The tactics were cool and it is good to see we turn the tables on the rebels for once! as we are the ones setting the ambush on a convoy...how does it feel rebs?! hehehe.
Addendum: The bug LC Impulse mentions about the Shuttles being attacked has been fixed.
Perfect battle. Medium dificulty, interesting. But your wingmen attack shuttles that must be boarded. If you don't send fighters home you'll fail the mission.
A nice and respectable mission. Completely bug free, and all TIE pilots should fly it.
Quite good mission
Well made, fun challenge, but not too hard. One of the better Free Missions around.
Freighter Group Kessler actually hyperspaces even though your Interdictor is still there live and kicking
Its orders should change so that it should only hyperspace if the INT dies.
1) Your FG cannot go home, it circles around forever after you order them to hyperspace home
Your FG should have a proper hyperspace depart option.
2) You are able to order the SSD Avenger to hyperspace home which is... bad, because that
locks you out of the secondary objectives and it offers no point to the actual mission itself.
The SSD should have the tickbox of obey player disabled
The secondary objectives seem buggy
It flags the shuttle which is carrying the officers as the one that needs to be boarded, whereas the ATR attempts to board the Shuttle carrying the admiral (as it should be).
As a result the secondary objectives cannot be completed
Now the Shuttles do not appear at all.
Was waiting with frigates hull below 50% but that did not trigger it (if it what triggers shuttle appearing)
