Battle Reviews




An odd dogfight. You're given a trusty TIE Advanced, nothing out of the ordinary there, and you're fighting some alphabet fighters, also nothing out of the ordinary there, but when it comes time to grab the B-Wings - where did they go? Well, finally someone got smart and told those B-Wings to fly in the opposite direction of the flying. That or those weird cockpits had them all disoriented. Either way, hustle to chase them down before it gets to be a pain to catch up to them.

Just a straight up dogfight mission with lots of support and not as many enemies as needed to make it troublesome. They throw a Frigate in there but we have a group of gunboats that are itching for something to blow up. The fighters that exit the Frigate are easily dispatched. Even the B-Wings out there were a good fight. The best part I'd say is that there aren't endless waves of the same squadron, which is a bit annoying when that occurs. Still a decent mission overall.

I played on Easy. This was a quick and simple mission. There's not a whole lot to say here, frankly. The mission goes by pretty quickly as you kill some ships. Not much is really needed from you as a pilot.

COL Genie



The orders given to the B-Wings are flawed. They fly off into the sunset for no apparent reason. Overall, this mission is very basic and simple, but at least it's not a troll mission the likes of which I have flown a lot these past few days.

COL Phalk Sturm



basic engagement about dogfighting waves of different alphabet fighters, until the mission in accomplished. The action is well balanced and happens at a high rate, so the mission is somewhat short. Worth a try for some fast easy FCHG point.

GN Stryker



A simple free mission, but effective - waves of Rebel craft coming in, followed by a Frigate, and you get to fly a TIE Advanced which is my favourite Imperial ship! Only gets a 4 because it's nothing goundbreaking, but I do enjoy the simplicity!

Personal Tally: B-Wing x2 |
Debriefing: We intercepted the Rebels we received the report of on the long range scanners. No trouble at all was had. |
OOC: Not every piece of fiction must be War and Peace or remake the wheel. Some missions can be simple without trouble. This was just that. Some people would scoff at the rather simple plot that was had with no twists, just a we see Rebels on our long range scanners lets take them out. Sometimes these missions are needed. Call them a palate cleanser for more complicated missions down the road. This was a perfectly fine mission with a large number of enemies. However as always with Balance of Power it can be a bit wonky on if you get credit or not for the actual kill. So don't be discouraged. Also this is a Dark Brotherhood Free Mission.

GN Master



Its actully a good mission, its just that the difficulty settings are totally unbalanced. Mission plays itself on Easy, but its near impossible on Med or Hard.
