Battle Reviews

Unclear mission objectives multiple times and lots of ships crashing into each other sometimes failing the mission for you

In its current state this battle is a humorous wreck. Unless you carefully read the officer briefings you will be lost on some missions. The animated briefing for #2 was a nice touch to fit the plot, but in the other missions the animated briefing should have given a clearer understanding of the mission goals. The battle has several bugs (see report) that wreck the overall feel of the game. I would advise anyone to avoid this battle until it has been repaired. Fighter orders on capital ships can ruin your day or make a mission ridiculously easy depending on what the caps lock on to.

I don't understand why this battle was so hilarious, but it had some funny parts to it. And anything with the Challenge and Thunder Squadron is great. Nice action, nice plot, good design, good briefings.

nice and funny

lol, *beats you all with a rooster* this is a great battle, it has all you need. A good plotline, Humour, and some brillant missions to fly! download this one it r0xx0r.

Great plot, and a nice way to introduce new pilots to the squadrons of Wing X. Bug-free, well thought out, and with a very cool briefing in mission 2. Numerous inflight messages give this battle a "live" feel. Highly recommended.

Battle labeled as "TIE-TC 170" in battle select window. EVERY starship appears to have starfighter orders. This is likely the reason for so many AI fighter-to-starship collisions. Goals aren't always clear. (i.e.: Goal for transports to complete mission, but no message or goal directing you to disable the craft transport needs to dock... in either mission #2 or #3)

Mission One :: Cyclone are flying patrol around the Chal. Defend against a

Chal's internal farming deck.

immediately get off the ship for our own saftey! Those roosters are crazy,
crazy....... psychotic roosters! They have ran on the rampage, and we are
unable to control the ship! Escape and bring help!
We launch from the Challenge, escaping with our ties and we see
the transport is still in the area - we capture it, and find out where
they came from. It seems that these roosters are actually Rooster Droids,
built by a Civilian corporation to drive us insane! Time for a raid,
boys........... A Modified Frigate arrives to pick us up.

Mission 3 :: Its time to pay those traitors back! Strike at their base.
Destroy the manufacturing facility. Capture key personnel which are able to
