Excellent battle. Very detailed story that you can tell had a lot of effort put into it. The choice of craft and mission objectives fit the story nicely, and overall it reminded me of some of the early wing commander games. Very fun, though not a quick one.
played this as part of rtf 21. had a good time with this one, pretty simple defend shuttles, destroy frigates and save your star destroyers. saving your ships makes killing the enemies alot easier
Very good overarching story line with long descriptive text that do not get boring. I really enjoyed playing this battle and I am looking forward to the story being continued in future battles.
A generous six mission battle with a decent story line and well written mission briefings and debriefings. For me, there was a large divide between easy and the medium and hard difficulties and in the end played the majority of the campaign on easy. An enjoyable fly in the end though does get somewhat “grindy” with large amounts of the same enemy to fly against.
Well I am thoroughly sick of Toscan Fighters after flying that, but this battle felt like it had an epic scale and was satisfying to fly. Definitely one of the better early XWA battles and worth the time it takes to complete.
I played this on Easy. On Easy, the missions barely require you to have a pulse and the endless swarms of your allies will kill most everything by themselves. I don't follow the storylines much, so these missions all felt very similar. You just destroy a handful of Toscan fighters, maybe blow up a small capital ship or two, and enter hyperspace way too many times.
The storyline, although it feels borrowed from Wing Commander, is excellent. Debriefing also did a great job of furthering the story along. The briefing was mediocre and more importantly, most of the missions were horrible. Mission 3 is the perfect example of how not to do XWA missions. There were four jumps for no reason other than to make region jumps. The first two are instantly being taken care of by the friendly forces even though you re supposed to be alone on a recon flight and in the third region, your fleet abandons you to fight off everything that remains alone, because apparently they left the oven on. Very bad design decisions.
A fun battle. The plot is pretty much on par with some of the Expanded Universe stuff (even now, but definitely shades of Yuuzhan Vong, I think). TIE Defender vs hordes of Toscan Fighters got a little same-y by the end (especially the last battle when they launch ~20 at once!) - definitely felt like the object was just to squash whatever enemy was trying to blow up the ISD over and over.
Overall, worth the time.
The battle has an interesting story with a well developed missions. Personally found it a bit hard on hard settings, but I think overall a well balanced battle. Endless waves were a bit repetitive indeed.
Very well done battle. I liked the story and well developed briefings. The story started with a mystery, built conflict and tension and came to a resolution but left things open for more stories. The missions were well done also. I found no bugs or glitches and the difficulty was just about right (played on hard) though endless waves of fighters got repetitive at times. Well done!
Excellent battle. Fast and engaging but not crazy impossible. Flying a T/D is always my pleasure and butchering the rugged Toscans is always delightful. The plotline was immersive enough and leaves a cliff-hanger worth of following in the future. Perfect battle.
This battle was very straightforward and simple. On the last two missions, I was able to step away for a moment and the friendly craft completed the missions for me. Granted, I'm flying with invulnerability on and easy for quick FCHG points, but it's nice that the friendly craft were assigned orders that can complete the missions.
This battle is nothing too fancy. It has somewhat interesting plot that could be fleshed out far more, as the previous comments state. Technically the missions it features are designed in a really nice and proper way. They are quite well balanced although chasing hordes of Toscans throughout the whole battle gets a bit dull. I agree the missions offer way too many bonus points for something that happens in the battle anyway or is part of the primary goal. It looked as if that was the way to see the Kalimdor's Crescent with its upgrades. :) Nevertheless, this one is okay to fly.
Pretty fun mission, enjoyed some battles more than others, had a good time with some of different setups and how it came together. Story was just OK, seemed pasted on and didn't make a ton of sense.
This battle was...uninspiring story wise; I found I didn't relate to the plot and just skipped the briefings and debriefings just so I could get through the missions as quickly as possible. Possibly too many bonus points awarded for no reason, as well, though it's good to know how many different Khalidor Crescents you can earn in the game!
One of the best missions I have played. Very polished plot line implemented whole implemented in UI mission briefings. All missions in the battle are great, moderately difficult and varied with lots of blasting smugglers and rebels!
It´s quite a good battle, though in the last mission i miss the emergence of any more enemy large or medium craft.
Starts off quite mundanely, but does pick up towards the end.
good story line real good battle.
Good battle and good history Recommended
Wonderful battle! This is my first XWA custom battle that I have flown, but I do know enough to say that this battle is great. If it weren't for the endless Toscans and their evil missiles, I would have given this battle a 5. Great storyline, wonderful gameplay.
More or less what everyone else said... an excellent plotline (more than comparable with a LucasArts invention) but somewhat cyclic thanks to the swarms of Toscans. Also, a custom Veepal ship would've been nice.
I like the concept and the battle itself. I think if it weren't for the nearly endless waves of Toscan Fighters waiting to shove missles up my rear I would have given this battle a 5. As it is, it's still one of the better battles I've played, so it still warrants a 4.
Hard, but not impossible, and very well balanced, great plotline, this battle is a must play :)
This is the best battle I have ever flowen. In any flight sim.. Good brefings,plotline & I loved the ending. Also I got to fly my fav.. fighter the awsome T/D.I was wanting more. Good Job..
Great, excellent, superb. Need, part two!
Great plot, great missions, great Battle. The best I ever played!
I loved it! Great story line mixed with real hard fightening, never thought Torscan fighters would be such a hand full, especially when flying the TIE/D. I can't wait to play to 2nd part keep up the good work
Awsome Mission, woulda gave it a 5, but, need more variety of atting craft.
Superb Battle, great plot.
I never give fives, so this gets a 4. Great story-line, great ideas... but I kinda got tired of the old T/D versus Toscan Fighter all the time. Otherwise: a 5.
Cool battle! I will now download the second part.
Good battle, excellent de-briefings, but the briefings leave something to be desired. I kinda got tired of killing Toscan fighters though.
The BEST battle I have ever flown! Great storyline, great missions, great ending!
A little repetitrive.
It seemed a bit repetitive...
very very good battle. I loved it especially the story, very good.
Excellent battle, massive battle in mission 5. Great replayability.
I thought that these battles were made well, and the storyline was good. Can't wait to try Part 2
Great battle, except I'll have to concede to one point made by another pilot: Too much just sitting on the sidelines...It would be nice to be able to get in and kill some more before the mass of reinforcements come in and do the job for ya. Overall, however, a GREAT battle. I'm going to go load Part II in now and give it a whirl!
A potentially good battle, but sorry too many times you end up just being an spectator. Also contains another one of those lets leave out some very important information at the briefing, I like the idea of a twist to missions, but leaving out mission critical orders. Story line was good, but not a battle which I would recommend.
Brillant, 1 of the Best Battles ive fought.
Great battle, I now want to utterly destroy those arrogant aliens. If I see one more Toscan Fighter...
I can't say anything bad about this, didn't have any problems, and loved the storyline where you fly in a campaign against a barabaric race threatning the EH. I wish more missions were somewhat like this.
Great for a non-LA mission. Fantastic plot and superb missions. I'd improve 2 things: first of all, I'd make a new fighter for those alien bastards. Second, I'd add some speech samples. But, anyways, this battle is a must-do and deserves a 6. It made me like XWA!
EXCELLENT! The battle was so cool. I even got the Diamond Eyes of the Kalidor Crescent. HURRY UP WITH THAT SEQUEL, COLONEL
Excellent Battle!!! one of the best I've played, eagerly awaiting sequel!!!! =)
Woooooooohooooo, great mission, that was bloody FUN...
Great plotline,great balance,great battle!This battle is truly a masterpiece! Keep up the good work! P.S. Now I know Toscan fighter's weak spot.
I enjoyed every minute of it. Can't wait to play the next one. Keep up the good work.
This battle was great. The story elements, both in mission and in the breifings were incredible. The only thing that I found anoying was siting out the last mission because a Toscan fighter disabled me a minute into it. But that was my own fault, so I only hate Toscans, not the battle.
INCREDIBLE! The story line was great! I absolutely LOVED the debriefings. Anybody wanting to make battles should be required to fly this first. The only con, aside from Aliens using human ships :P, was that the fighters, in my opinion, were too easy to take out...and I doubt many people see that as being bad :).
Excellent, excellent battle. Highly recommended. Shooting the same types of ships over and over again did get a little boring, though, but the story was great and the action was non-stop.
I liked the battle, its a really fun one (thas purdy much it* btw ya talk like that when you Live in Texas :P
Great battle, but the dogfighting gets a little too wild for me! (Especially when my arm feels like it's gonna fall off...)
Great Battle Graphically, The last missions fleet looks incredible arrayed as they are when reinforcements arrive. Only two gripes, something other than toscan fighters would have added replayability to it. Secondly Missions could have been a bit more varied. Other than that great custom battle, highly recommend to everyone!! Keep it up, cant wait for the follow up!
This is the best custom XWA battle I have played yet! Anyone with XWA must play this battle!
Excellent story and missions. By far the most fun XWA battle to play. The small technical errors really didn't affect the gameplay much. Having the conversations as debriefings was brilliant, and worked perfectly.
This battle makes me (a dedicated TIE Fighter pilot) want to fly more XWA battles, it's that good. I was slightly disappointed by the aburpt end of the plotline, but other than that, this was an EXCELLENT battle!
A great Battle, my Favorite and my CMDR´s favorite. But there should be more types of enemy figthers not only Toscan figthers
Storyline is good , battles are good designed ( I like especially the debriefing ) but it´s not so challenging as I thought .
Top notch! (even if some cap ships had starfigher orders....but the storyline kept up for that)
Excellent Battle... Its good to see some new opposition rather than constantly attacking boring old X and A-Wings, even though their much easier to shoot down :P
Very good plot. I hate Toscan fighters now. Can't wait for the follow-up battle.
Great story, great missions, great battle. People who don't play this really miss something.
Where to begin, where to begin...this mission is the best there ever was, and ever will be, the only exception is that Caps had fighter orders. Implecable, other than that one tiny detail. Kudos and I hope to see more of you missions in future time.
BEST DANG XWA BATTLE PLAYED YET!! I loved it..The caps with fighters orders were the only detractor but apart from that GREAT BATTLE!! I beg you make a sequal.
The best XWA battle so far! The plotline is borrowed from Truce at Bakura and NJO, but with enough originality to keep it interesting. Capships with fighter orders are the only flaw in the gameplay, but it didn't seem to detract too much. The debriefings are great, cool, awesome, whatever! Can't wait for a sequel!
One of the true greats. Very well done to COL Sauron for writing a battle that holds your interest all the way through. Even if I did get a little confused in the mission where I had to fly a Defender to protect the Escort Shuttle that was carrying me :P
What a great battle ! The missions flowed niceley and the story line was pure brilliance ! A must play !
Alright, the plot is a little unoriginal, lifted right out of Truce at Bakura/New Jedi Order ... and there's the annoying inconsistency that if this is an unknown alien race, why do they use standard galactic ships? But all the same, this battle rocks great big fecking bells, and that's all anybody needs to know.
Sweet battle. Played out well and had a great storyline. My compliments to Sauron.
This is definitely the BEST XWA battle yet to be made! The after mission fics were extremely cool. The story was very good. The Battle was actually on the easy side though. It was easily the best battle made in the EH. Worthy of the 5.
THE BEST XWA BATTLE IN MY OPINION!!!!!
I have enough of Toscan Fighters FOREVER!
Not the most technically sound, but the plot is pretty dang good for an EH Battle!
Great Battle. It's ALOT of fun to play. You can overlook some of the problems like starfighter orders for cap ships because the plot rules and the missions are lots of fun. MUST HAVE SEQUEL!!!
This is the best battle I'v flown ever
This must be the best battle i have ever flown! The plotline is pure excellence, the battles themselves are massive fun to fly! I assume theres part 2 to come :) I can't wait!
Yes, a great plot, borrowed from truce at bakura & the NJO books.However, capships with starfighter orders, and a few other oversites in the mission design detracted from it.
I think this battle sets a new high standard for the plots that go along with the battles. It had a great text opener, and wondeful "after mission" story parts that not only explained what happend in the last mission, but also led the player into the next mission.I was surprised by how well the in-mission elements fit to the story line, and how the battle left you wondering more about its sequel. Well worth the 5.
The BEST XWA Battle so far in my opinion!
I love the story. I love the battle! Play this, it's great!
Excellent battle! No Bugs at all! Great Storyline. Its not too hard or too easy either! Great job!
Excellent , almost always something going on and a lotta stuff to kill :)
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
