I love flying in X-Wings, B-Wings, even Y-Wings on the XvT engine. So I always start off with the right foot when it comes to IW battles. I feel this battle hasnt been tested thoroughly by its creator. For example, objectives get automatically triggered on the start of some missions. The obligatory 'let your pilot know he needs to wait' flight message is missing and sometimes it makes you wonder whether you screwed up or missed out on some instruction. The last mission was though very appropriate!

This battle could have been so much better. It had a decent plotline and was unfolding in an interesting chain of events. The battle action itself however, got lost in an intricate labyrinth of very hard and stupidly easy missions. Totally unbalanced, the gaming experience was strained to a point of demolishing whatever good effort was put into the plotlines, the briefings and the tactical layouts. Only to be flied if you want to complete the Compendium like myself, or earn some 5 FCHG points along the way. Skip it.

There should be a place where this quality of battle can go and quietly die.

For an IW Battle it was ok. In opinion to much waiting time in some parts, and in some cases the amount of friendly forces or craft used for certain missions just wasn't believeable.

Aside from Mission 2, this is a good battle. As for mission 2, If someone could please send me a video clip of how they did this mission, I would be very appreciative. In my opinion, the mission is impossible and I have never played any other mission that even approached the difficulty of this. You can't even complete the mission on easy. The difficulty of this mission on easy should have been the difficulty on hard. I highly recommend this mission be reanalyzed.

Mission 2 alone justifies the 0 rating. The wingmen leave at the beginning of the mission and later 3 A-Wings plaster me with advanced missiles while 3 B-Wings destroy the first Corvette: Mission failed within seconds.

Mission 2 - is easily completable if you pay attention to what is happening. The battle is fairly good.

One of the worst battles I've ever played, if not the worst. Mission #2 is insanely hard, and not like made-to-be-challenging, just stupidly challenging. It's absolutely ridiculous. No wonder no one plays IW battles, it's garbage like this that gives them a bad name.
