This is a long battle with a weak plot line and is sadly a battle I wish that I could unplay.
Most missions will place you in a slow imperial ship and seem to throw waves of A-Wings at you specifically to run interference. Friendly ships will frequently try to shoot you down. The biggest issue that stood out for me is the whole pace, quality and feel of the battle seems to change half way through. Almost like the latter missions are created by a totally different person. The missions are incredibly brief and the missions largely seems to be 'Shooting fish in a barrel' type.
An average battle that has some problems. The plot is very thin and is basically abandoned halfway through. The remaining missions don't justify the total length, which is long by TC standards (7 missions). Luckily the missions themselves are simple, mostly functional and easy. Getting a decent score doesn't take much time, either. There are a few odd bugs with collisions or friendly fire. Like most battles, capital ships are problematic. Here they're sometimes seen holding steady and not firing back. The final mission is the weakest, placing you in a shielded TIE Bomber without much ordnance. For a 'bombing' mission, most of the time will be spent dogfighting while other craft attack the primary targets. Any other craft would've been a better choice. On the plus side, some of the missions feature shielded TIE Interceptors, which is an interesting craft that I personally enjoy flying.
Missions 2, disable the two corvettes FIRST, if not, your shuttles will never survive and mission will never be accomlished, otherwise easy battle!
While not the worst battle I've played, "Escort Carrier Missions" just has far too many problems to be considered good. From friendly fire to waves of craft that sometimes show up, sometimes don't, and TIE-Bomber vs. A-Wing escapades, it just isn't fun. And as another said, it's long. And that's an understatement.
Long....very, very long.
Looks like too many A-Wings for a TIE Bomber...
A long and boring battle.
Nothing is better than to be the center of attention of A-Wings in a TIE Bomber. Killer though is the "Friendly" Fire in three separate missions.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
