Battle Reviews

COL Phalk Sturm



Decent and enjoyable battle. Although, with some minor tweaks this one could have improved drammatically. Some of the assignments have excessively long waiting times, and the idea of pitting a T/I against capships with insufficient payloads, is plain boring. Trigger-finger soring should be avoided by creators. Last mission is close to a clear copy of mission 1. Putting those issues aside, it's worth a try and good for 4 FCHG points.

AD Hav Antiel



Interesting battle, especially for the DB. Once again you're flying TIE/IN with shields—plus a beam weapon this time. Not sure why the DB keeps sending Interceptors to take out enemy cap ships.

COL Rau Aznable



I don't give it a 5 because of the ridiculous bugs. Nevertheless, this battle is very challenging and really fun. It even made me crash with an asteroid for the first time ever.

LC Choosh



Very good battle, i didn't like all the T/I with missiles though, they were tough, and in mission 4 I had to disable the friendly VSD so it wouldn't ram the one i had to capture. But it was enjoyable

GN Smitrock



I liked this DB battle, not too hard and not so easy. Just a little bit of a wait early on in the battle to captue the VSD but I made a quick grilled cheese sandwich :) Good battle Fenn.

This one needs a big rework. Friendly caps are sitting ducks, enemy caps shoot back. Friendly fighters attacking friendly ships, way too many bombers with torpedoes for easy, and why on earth you need to destroy all fighters in mission 4 is beyond me. Finally manage to keep yhe VSD alive, but then you can't pay attention to that one limping T/I that got away :(

GN Anahorn Dempsey


Mission 2 is dumb: you barely have enough rockets to take out the frigate, and then 2 ISDs show up. Using unlimited waves also doesn't work cause your wingmen start attacking your own Corvette, which then hypers out preventing additional waves :(

Mission 1: Friendly VSD 'Ebony Flare' does not fire at enemies.

This battle requires the EH Ship Patch for XvT but it is not stated on the battle download page or in the readme.
