Battle Reviews

CM Nova Discordia



Overall, a good series of battles, but as the other reviews have stated, could do with some polishing. Mission 3 especially needs some clarity/work done on it - top hint - focus if you can on killing off the enemy capital ship.

RA Genie



It has a storyline, and the missions as a concept fit in. Where it fails is the laziness exhibited, evident both in the briefing and inflight. It's a shame. I was thinking it could have pushed up to 4 or 5 with a bit more effort. On the plus side, laziness means a quick battle. And quick it is. At least it's not just another dogfight.

HA Turtle Jerrar



This was a decently prepared four mission battle. The earlier missions are probably a bit stronger that the latter, especially mission four (where I managed to clean out everybody and then just had to sit around waiting for AI ships to dock). There is some versatility in craft selection between the missions, which is always a plus in my opinion. The plot or mission objectives weren’t overly complicated, but moved along appropriately. Overall a decent fly. I flew it on hard.

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy with cheats enabled. I can't really speak to much on this battle except that it's very fast. If you want a battle that's extremely quick and gets you points, this one is for you.

Relatively easy to complete for the RTF competition. Missions go pretty quick and they aren't too bad in terms of crazy number of ships attacking the spacecraft that you have to protect. All in all solid on story side of things as well.

AD Phoenix Berkana



It's a smart idea - the tie in of Dark Troopers was quite cool! The execution was reasonable however easily completed. For RtF or FCHG this is a good one to complete as it's relatively easy.

LCM Lo Mar



I really enjoyed the tie-in of Dark Troopers for this. That said, they didn't really do much with it, there wasn't much of a narrative and the briefings were pretty basic. The mission design itself was pretty basic and repetitive too. Overall could've been something a lot cooler with a little more effort.

LC SkyShadow



This is a four mission battle based around the Dark Trooper plot line of Dark Forces. I love the tie in with the game however the plot line does little to explore the story. The plot as well as the briefings get particularly thin towards the back end of this battle.
I found the battle to be incredibly easy though enjoyable enough to play.

CPT Alexi Stukov




CPT Dujhod



Too easy and simplistic, but entertaining nonetheless.

LC Curtis



i think this is a great battle with a orginal plotline and lots of fighting would have got a five if a bit longer

LC Gen Es'mith



Well balanced, joy to fly! (yeah, perhaps easier than FCHG-1, but hooray!!)

CPT Fallien Skull



Good missions, can be chalenging at times.

AD Krax Tarnisar



Interesting plot, but it quickly turned into a "kill 'em all and let Vadar sort 'em out" kind of thing. I would have liked to see a couple of plot twists; perhaps there's a traitor and in the heat of battle some shuttles need to be inspected. Something along those lines. But, on the whole, it was a good battle. Not too hard, but not too easy.

AD Ranthier Khaen



An excellent battle! Easy in parts, but the storyline is good. I love to see custom missions expanding on the established SW timeline. Good job!

LCM Zodiak



This mission is fast-paced and high on kill ratios. Capital ships move haphazardly, spinning in different directions, which unfortunately cuts down on realism. Missile boat missions are the hardest. Still, a fun mission with TONS of action!

COL Dan Malaktos



The word easy flashes before my eyes. Many times. Note to all pilots: Always fly missions on hard!

LT Alun Tringad



Nice battle. Not too hard, but not too easy. Well-done plot.

Battle Bug Reports

CM Nova Discordia


Mission 3 I found odd - on my first play through, despite the briefing saying that a bombing run was going to happen against the interdiction capital ship , it never did, and as I was only armed with (for some reason) default mag pulses, I was killed off by said ship. Also, several flights of Xwings spawned which didn't do anything until you shot at them, and seem pretty much placed to lure you near the capital...odd. Second play through, swapped to rockets, killed the cap, TIE bombers *then* turned up, again, odd....
