Battle Reviews




This isn't a terrible battle, but it just barely squeaks by that definition. Want to blow up some cap ships and their accompanying fighters? This battle sort of fits that description, and you could certainly fly this with that in mind, but I wouldn't recommend it over many others just like it. Fly it for the points, not much else here.

CPT Solohan50



I played on Easy. This is a fairly quick and simple mission if you cheese it. I have no idea what this mission would be like if you fought it legitimately, though. It seems like it could be a real big slog if you did.

COL Genie



It was just another regular mission. The weird thing is those TUGs. They belong in some shipyard repairing starships instead of slow-mo bombing the enemy.

COL Phalk Sturm



Tedious mission. It's not that there is anything wrong with it, but the concept of just dogfighting everything they throw at you, feels a bit overused, and somehow wearisome and arid. But, if you feel like taking several waves of alphabets while riding an Advanced with good missiles, this is your mission. Worth a tiresome point of FCHG

LT Mosey



Welcome to Star Destroyer hugging! You'll be closely humping a low-rez Super Star Destroyer for ages, waiting for your shields to recharge while you take occasional potshots at this 'You vs. 201' scenario. That's right, I counted, you'll be facing 201 starfighters, transports (with turrets), escort shuttles (with turrets), and it's a long day of cuddling up against that SSD. Luckily, XvT AI has zero clue how to handle this giant obstacle, and it's your salvation while you notice that every ship name is misspelt. What is Planet X? No one cares. I spent 80 minutes here so you won't have to.

Destroying the tugboats as they exit Cruiser Anticipation deals massive damage to the Cruiser. Is this intended?

Battle for Planet X

Along the Imperium Territorial Line is a large white unknown planet without a name.  
Any current records show of no alien or humanoid species residing there.  The only known life on the planet is a lush plant enviroment with no bodies of water.   
The plant life flurishes due too constant rain fall which evaperates off of the planets crust before a body of water can form.  
 Imperial Probe transmissions indicate that the majority of Planet X is on the Republic side of the Territorial Line.    
We have recieved word from Imperial Intellegance that a small Rebel Fleet is attempting to arrive just outside the planets orbit and claim it under Republic rule.  
 This cannot happen!    The Grand Master has ordered the SSD Avenger along with four of its Strike Squadrons to intercept the Rebellian and take control of Planet X.   
The Grand Master foresee's the estsablishment of a new Sith training facility...  It would be most unwise to disappoint the Grand Master and Commodore Firefox.

Wing Commander: COL Shups will brief you on the objectives before launch.
