Golden Spoon 2002: best XvT free mission of 2001

Battle Reviews

Enjoyable, clear cut mission, with the added deadline of the frigate and Mon Cal trying to ram your capital ship in retribution.

Bonus points for being able to play as a TIE/IN (but sadly not a TIE/LN)

A bit of a goofy mission. The capital ships ramming into your ISD is clearly intentional. Whether that's a good thing or not is a different matter. There is a far far better mission whereby a Frigate suicides into your ISD done a lot better than this. You can always give this one a go.

A complete mess. After dogfighting for over 15 minutes, the CRS and the FRG go and ram the ISD. Unbelievable. Do not waste a second of your time on this.

A mostly enjoyable mission, you get to fly an TIE/I so that is a bonus point there. It is a rather easy mission to complete. Bug found, reported by earlier pilots.

This is fun, but it only gets a 3 because of the already mentioned problem with the waypoints.

The waypoints are all messed up, as the FRG ends up inside your ISD. Other then that, its just an easy point.

Not a bad mission, the reason I only gave it a 3 is because of the enemy capital ships converging on your mothership and flying right into it?

All i can say is a fun fly, and an easy point.

Pretty good, only there seemed to be some waypoint problems with cap ships ramming each other

This is my first battle review, over all I likes the mission. The Y-wings die way to fast, maby increase the A/I level on them. There names seem kind of goofy too (Shield pop?). But over all a decent mission

Same bug Dempsey was reporting

GN Dunta Polo


The bug Dempsey reported is still there.

HA Anahorn Dempsey


I wonder how this ever got 'best mission'. Your friendlies hyper out way too fast, and every cap ship out there appears to be colliding with every other cap ship out there.

The ISD Intrepid and the INT Catch are going to pull the rebel crusier Defiance 
from hyperspace and we are to destroy both the Defiance and it's convoy. As a member of Viper Squadron you must aid
in the destruction of the rebel convoy. If the Intrepid is damaged, reinforcments may be sent however you will be reprimanded.
Be prepared, we are unsure of the convoy's defenses. We have heard rumors of some advanced fighters on board.
However, intelligance is unsure what to expect.
