So I've played this battle after reading the reviews, and I thought it couldn't be that bad. It's basically an advertisement for Taco Bell, and since I ate only one time at that fast-food, I don't really get the hype around it. Anyway, the battle itself is not so badly made, and it's kinda fun actually. Until mission 5. It's stupid, and you can see the maker did not test it before submitting it. It's just broken, and ruins the battle itself. I understand that we want to offer many battles to our members, but that's one battle that should be removed, or at least reworked. It's just bad and I've wasted already too much time playing and reviewing it.
I HATE humorous battles.
In mission one VSD isntead SSSD
Missions 1 and 2 are tooe asy on hard
missions 3 and 5 are too hard on hard and mission 5 is impossible to finish on hard
Enemy dont have enemy IFF
Craft often dont have mothership to return
Plot is bad.
Harmfull when played,
One of this battles that shouldn't have been released by the TAC office the way it is... Missions 3 and 5 are near impossible, mission 5 you wonder what the hell to do. Your VSD Sovereign (believe it or not)always gets destroyed. The frigate has some kind of crash on it, and rams it. If you destroy the frigate, you fail the mission because it goes into hyperspace once it shields are down. Then when you go for some help in "Any special instructions?", the creator gives you a wise ass comment "What are you? Some rebel lover?!" Wow now that was funny, that's really gonna help me complete your crap, insane mission.
I'll give it a three, because mission 5 is really hard on Hard level. Otherwise the plot was really dumb, but mission 5 is worth trying. I had tried it at least 50 times before I succeeded because of the collision course of FRG Shamu and the VSD.
Didn't enjoy this one too much, it was *very* hard to complete, mostly because you had to hunt for the enemy by using the next/previous ship keys. Also any enemy ship you killed showed up on the 'Lost ships' list!
In the later missions making the 'Taco' forces enemies so they show up with 'Select Nearest Enemy' would be nice. Battle was a lame attempt to be humorous...
Not to bad - some refinement with Orders and other conditions (Waypoints) would greatly improve this battle.
the first mission was ok, but the bottom dropped out after that. the last mission was absolutely insane.
I can forgive a lot of flaws for a sense of humour. Not every battle has to be "the end of the EH if you fail"... Try Spam Wars (103?) for a better executed humourous battle.
Terribly designed battle with no briefings. This is the worst one I've flown. All this over and above the low brow plotline.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
