This mission is a disappointment. One of many.
It starts with a simple, old school premise, provide space superiority, clear a minefield, disable a cap ship and protect the capture operation. But it was just that. So simple it turned out to be a bit tedious, since the enemy is no challenge, because although they are armed with missiles and could pose a problem on paper, see 4 Waves of 6 A-Ws and X-Ws flying against you simultaneously, they just go around in circles paying little notice to your presence and occasionally trying to shoot you down. I am giving it a 3, because it features my favourite ship, the Space Cadillac, see the mighty T/D, where everything is turned easy for you and fatal for your foes. Besides that, it's just an ordinary mission that could have been so much better. Fly it for the points.
It's not unbalanced, just requires some strategic planning. I got a mission complete on the first run.
1) Load Heavy Rockets and immediately launch all of them towards the CRL (makes your lie latr a helluva lot easier)
2) Kill some fighters, but always disable one from each group so they won't respawn
3) Destroy the minefield
4) Disable CRL (it only has 19% shields or less because of the HRs)
5) Kill the Burp group
6) Finish up the remaining starfighters
Awesome! no balance my arse! I kicked in one try... maybe Dujhod isnt just as great a pilot as me!.... simple destroying rogue, awings, and mines.... then work on the bottom of the crs... wipe the cannons... then disable it and ionize it! muha! Good Job!
Thats because its a Free Mission. This was my first mission done, and because of it, I was seeing what I could do. I'm currently working on a series of battles youll see soon.
Fairly standard mission (disable the capital ship, destroy the starfighters). My only real objection is that it lacks balance. Five TIE Defenders and an ATR against a Rebel CRL with a complement of forty starfighters and a sizeable minefield is not a balanced mission. The other problem is that the mission has practically no plot. We never really find out why we're attacking this CRS, except for a vague sentence in the post-mission officer briefing.
There are currently no open bug reports for this battle.
