Battle Reviews

Fairly basic missions that aren't too bad to complete. They can be quite a bit of fun as you see who would win in essentially a fleet battle. Unlike the horrible SWS fleet battles though, these are actually designed to be much better.

I played on Easy. This was a very quick set of missions. I appreciate that you get to play as a few different craft in these missions. They seemed fairly well designed and I had fun playing them, even though they were over pretty quickly.

A reasonable battle with some well thought out combat sequences in my opinion. You may want to mix up the default selections that the designer has you sitting in, in order to expedite the battle (e.g. go for the GUN in mission 1 and destroy the cruiser yourself).

THis battle seems like a great big team battle for pvp. otherwise single player is pretty good, make sure to pick the right ships for each mission, otherwise youll have a hard time trying to win against the capital ships

A job well done. Maybe some time down the line we can actually try this as a PvP. Not sure how they got it to work with 8 players back in the day. Even now we struggle to do any form of multiplayer with 4 players!

Very good battle. The plotline is somewhat simple but achieves to deliver a good atmosphere. The missions are well balanced and can be approached from a variety of roles and fighters, accordingly available to the player, which is plus that shows flexibility and care for the pilot. Only one mission felt a bit nonsensical since it involved some endless dogfighting, and I chose the wrong ship for it. Besides this minor detail, the battle is excellent and definitely one to play again in my list.

I was never in the ASF during its heyday, so most of this went over my head. However, it's a well designed battle aside from some annoying stealth missiles, and it was nice to see clubs that are still alive and kicking (Renegade Wing, Gray Squadron, Rebel Squadrons) included.

This is a super fun, well-designed battle. I was great for SP and must have been great for 4v4 back in the day. I can't vouch for the goals being balanced for the teams, but the missions felt better than the stock scenarios that come with XvT.

What a fantastic battle! ;P Something to keep in mind on this one is that its made as a combat battle for 4vs4 multiplay and this means that the goal of the missions is to be _very_ balanced (in both forces and points), as to give both rebels and EH an even chance on winning. This means that vs an ASF wing you'll get a rebel wing, a squad vs a squad etc. Since its based on the ASF that'll get you at least 3 missions with the 3 wings... which will make them look simmular indeed. For the rest the goal was to make it as complete as could be and IMHO that has definitely worked out :D

To many of the mission are too similar, and battle becomes tedious after a while. The sound/voices are great, but more effort should have gone into making the missions different. The orders could also do with some refining. The battle is still worth flying

Story Line
----------

MISSION 1: "ISD Vanguard vs CRS Liberty"
The ISD Vanguard of the TIE Corps had planned for a training operation with 
the Aggressor Strike Force elite squadron as their sparring partner.
The CRS Liberty of the Renegade Wing had been in contact with Alliance HQ 
about getting resupplied on foodstuffs, water and an amount of smallarms for 
the footsoldiers onboard.

No problem you'd say - except that the location and time for both operations 
was exactly the same: The Antjeh Deeps. It was a miracle of navigation that 
both ships didn't hit each other frontally on coming back into real space. Not 
being prepared for the confrontation, both started to retreat back into hyperspace, 
but that would take time - in which their contacts would arrive too, unknowingly 
into hostile territory... First Strike Policies on both sides now have created a 
situation where both ships have launched all of their fighters - and bombers.

MISSION 2: "Avenger Squadron vs Gray Squadron"
Imperial Squadron Avenger and Rebel Squadron Gray face off in an asteroid field
near the Minos Cluster. Both are equiped with a VSD Command ship and  X-Wing Bombers!
Which Squadron will survive with its Command ship still intact? And how many fighters 
will that cost?

MISSION 3: "ISD Intrepid vs. ISD Chimaera"
After the Empire's fall from its set of power on Coruscant, and the following 
Rebel take-over, many individuals struck out on their own, determined to carve 
their own little niche of power in the Galaxy... this was called the "Time of 
the Warlords", all calling themselves Grand Admiral and the true Heir of the Empire.

In these times it became not uncommon for Imperial fractions to battle amongst eachother 
over even the most trivial things, but usually just to keep the other party down.

This is the Battle of Jah'Ree, where the "Galactic Empire" attacked a weapons lab 
working mostly for "the Emperor's Hammer". The independent weaponslab called in for 
EH help and now you've got two equally equipped Stardestroyers battling it out. 
Can the EH stop the GE attack or will the GE liberate the region from a bit more EH 
influence?

MISSION 4: "Rebel Squadrons Attack the ISD Grey Wolf"
The Imperial Star Destroyer Grey Wolf is being attacked by six squadrons of Rebel 
starfighters while awaiting the arrival of BGCOM Cyric. Prevent serious damage to 
the Grey Wolf or it will have to flee and Cyric will be most displeased!

NOTE 
-------------------
You need the XvT (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as i know
no other patches are needed. To fly in Combat all players need the same version,
make sure you all have the update by lucasarts installed.
For the XWA skirmishes you need XWA, if you want to fly the Capital Ships you'd
need to updated Shiplist file. To fly in Combat just the host needs to have it installed,
make sure you all have the update by lucasarts installed.
