Ok so I'll review storyline, technical aspects, tactics, briefing and fun factor per mission.

Storyline:
#1: If you dont read the description, you wont have idea what was going on. We were meant to escort some high ranking officers but we have to wait on a prototype as well . Messages just randomly mentioned the names of the officers. I admit there was an attempt to bring comments on the battle but they came out rather cold and bland imho although that could be a thing for we are imperials and we are meant to be cold. hmmm ok, point here.
#2: Ok, good plot here.
#3: Yea, liking the additional attempt from the rebels to get our tech. The Interloper is clearly a plot device and thats fine, in fact I like the concept of seeing what happens when a new prototype is built...will existing fighters be enough to stop it? is it too late? Again messages to give some sense of presence are awfully addded err...lets give it a point anyways.
#4: Oh, liked the plot twist and the feeling of revenge you get when dealing with the rebel fleet. Liked more the messages this time as they added immersion.


Technical:
#1: I think mission was ok in general terms. Nothing special but nothing wrong about it. Have a point.
#2: I think I got the general idea. If somebody shoots down something, there will be a comment. Yea, that works. Have a point.
#3: I'm ok with the mission, had some cool details like the shielded T/I. Nice to fly a shielded T/I. I love it as much as the T/A
#4: Again, technically it was ok. Nice touch when the ISDs arrive.

Operational:
#1: No, no real challenge, just shoot them down. Go for the TRNs
#2: Really, keep an eye on the gunboat and the ATRs. Careful with the B-Ws...in general terms GUNz arent meant to dogfight. Point here
#3: Well, no real danger ... if you know how to handle an interceptor.
#4: Again, no real danger. The MUTR was destroyed but I didnt lose the mission...the point about bringing a huge force is that it wont be enough to win the mission, it actually would require tactics, bravery...

Briefings:
#1: Briefing was ok save for not reminding us the corvette was critical and...you could see the briefing hinted at opposition #1 but didint mention it. Rather odd. Could use a revamp here.
#2: Briefing worked this time. Another point here. I mean, gives enough information.
#3: A few glitches. however, I had an idea what was going on. Point.
#4: This time briefing was ok, if the intention as to capture the MUTR. Either the mission plotline was wrong or the briefing was wrong...either you capture or destroy.

Fun factor:
#1: Well, it was fun but waiting on the ISD to jump away wasnt that fun.
#2: I know it is fun, just not my kind of fun with GUNz.
#3: Yea, it was fun!
#4: won't deny it: I had fun with this one.

Now, points...

#1:2/5
#2:4/5
#3:5/5
#4:3/5

In average, to me, it gets 3.5...but lets make it 4. Nice job. Can be improved but nice job nevertheless!

Enjoyed this a great deal - the overall plot made sense and worked well, and there was a nice mix of action. This would have got four stars from me, but like others, I found there was periods of time where you just waiting for a ship to leave to complete the mission, leaving you with nothing to do. I even made a coffee at one point waiting for a SD to hyper out!
Nice BOP battle to start with though.

A decent battle. However, so much pointless waiting for such a short battle. Otherwise, the missions were fun and well put together. Definitely enjoyed it otherwise! Give it a try if you like some good dogfighting and seeing the SSSD Sovereign in game

This is my first BoP battle, and it was very good. Straightforward, challenging and so much dogfighting it will warm you up for some more. The only bad thing about this battle is having long idle periods while waiting your ISDs or other ships to hyper out, but otherwise, it's an excellent simple assignment, with down-to-business plot, all while having the chance to fly the imperial war-mule, see the venerable Gunship. Not to be skipped, this one.

A simple and fun battle, let down only by the waiting times in some missions!

The waiting extremely long times for the hypering out needs to be tweaked, I don't mine 2-3 minutes after a battle but this seemed far far too long. I think upward of ten after the battle?

Could be a little longer, but was suitable for an evening's flying. I play on easy most of the time so I can't speak for the difficulty on higher levels, but it was fun and the escort mission didn't require an obnoxious amount of babysitting. I enjoyed getting to fly a Tie Interceptor- its my favorite Tie in terms of Aesthetics. One part I didn't enjoy so much was having to wait for an ISD to hyperspace out after all threats had been eliminated but it is what it is.

Nice to see SSSD Sovereign and my command ship ISD Grey Wolf in combat.

Well, it was fun but waiting for ISD's to hyper-out was annoying. Interesting idea with the stranded pilot but not hard enough. Cap. Ships could have been a little tougher (a constant pet peeve of mine is stupid Cap Ship Captains going in WITHOUT escort which really wouldn't happen in reality but i'm off topic) Good overall.

I enjoyed that battle, except the 3rd mission, because hiding behind a SSD hoping not to get hit isn´t something, what I call fun.

To have to chase Rebel crafts that flies straight into deep space, isn't exactly what I was looking for. This is a pretty poor battle.

I enjoyed this battle. I was fortunate enough to get the wav files to work which really makes the battle that much more enjoyable. Nice plot and the objectives were not ridiculous or outlandish.


Battle Bug Reports

M1,3: the wait times for the GW to hyper out are excessive, either reset hyperpoints or remove as goal. M4: T/I return home when there's still enemies left, M/FRG is set as secondary target while it's a primary goal

Description-

Mission-1
We are going to escort the Admiral Darkov, Rear Admiral, and Major Firefox to the Greywolf. You must make sure that all three of the ships they are embarked on make it to the Greywolf. The Admirals Corvette is carrying Top secret Material that must not fall into Rebel hands so expect the worst..

Player Craft (1) GUN

Mission-2
During the fighting in mission 1 CPT_Shups GUN was disabled. The Command staff wants flight one of Crusader squad to stay behind and protect CPT_Shups until the ATR Neuendorff docks with and repairs it. Then we all get to go home. Beware tha rebels know that our squad commanders Gun is disabled and they want information badly on our operations so they will send a strike force to capture the CPT.

Player Craft (1) Gunboat.

Mission-3
The ISD Greywolf is meeting the SSSD Sovereign to transfer the T/A Interloper a new proto type T/A with cloaking technology. You must not let this ship come to harm or worse be captured. You can also excpect the Rebels to show up and try to capture harass and generally try to make our lives hard. So Crusaders time to get out there and earn your navy pay.

Player Craft (1) T/I w/ Hyper Drive and Shields added.

Mission-4
During the fighting of Mission-3 a MUTR called Vickers piloted by our Bothan counter parts in this T/A Protoype Project have stolen the plans and are making for known Rebel space. It looks like they intend to hand over the Plans to the Rebels they must be destroyed so that these plans do not fall into rebel hands. GA Ronin has called on the rest of the ASF so expect them to arrive as back up. The Greywolf has already begun the chase we are also going to have an INT show up to help us completely destroy the Rebels in this sector, you will have to protect the INT while ATR's take out the command ships.

Player Craft (1) T/A
