Battle Reviews

RA Genie



Unpolished, with several minor bugs / issues and the occasional friendly ramming into capita ships at the very start of a mission. The missions themselves are not that great and the last mission was redundant and felt out of place as it was essentially a duplicate of mission 5.

FA Pickled Yoda



This wasn't fun and apart from that it has no concept of difficulty levels at all. The way that the AI are set up, I do not believe it's completeable on anything other than easy... which is ridiculous. On easy it's a turkey-shoot, but a frustrating one with double shielded, chaff and missile toting enemies. On medium - let alone hard - your allies are obliterated so quickly they might as well not exist.

COL Phalk Sturm



Average battle. The plotline feels slightly unappealing, since it feels too light to be humorous and certainly is not serious at all. In my opinion this is the major flaw of the battle. Although it is also a bit tedious some times, the missions themselves are entertaining even if flown in alphabet fighters. This was after all an IW related battle, what would anyone expect? TIE Defenders?. Certainly not, and is overall a solid battle. One word of advice, flying the B-W in the last mission did improve the playing experience by several notches. A good Infiltrator Wing themed battle that could have been a golden classic if not for the lame and sketchy plot. Anyway, worth the FCHG points and an hour of fun. Fly it if you haven't anything better to do.

AD Stryker



This was a fun battle that details just how far certain people would go to get their caffeine fix. Sure, there was some waiting involved, but I enjoyed it and there were no bugs that hindered gameplay.

HA Anahorn Dempsey



Agony. The endless waiting over and over and over and over :(

GN Abel Malik



Not a bad battle but you have to understand the informality of the IW to apreciate Neo's sence of humor in the missions. Back in the day there was a major rivalry between the MC-90 Warspite & Fear and it's officers. All in all, an enjoyable battle with Neo's unique sence of humor very present through-out the missions:P.

Mission 6: The capital ships' waypoint pathing causes them to collide andor fly through each other. This is particularly true of the three Star Destroyers.

Mission 1: The Quest for Caffiene by FLT Neo (plotline and mission)
Shock horror! The Warspite has run out of caffiene in any shape or form, so no more late night 
briefings or events can be held! We must secure a large source of caffiene, or else the Warspite's 
command staff and her pilots will begin to suffer withdrawl symptons and slip into a coma or actually 
stop being insomniacs!!

Mission 2: The Stolen Caffiene by CAP Vengance (plotline) and FLT Neo (mission)
More Horror!!! The Warspite has had our newly acquired caffeine has been stolen!! To make matters 
worse the pirates who stole our caffiene are trying to further humiliate us by disabling the Warspite.
Stop this filth and disable their ship so that thier crew can be brought aboard for a chat with our 
intel people.

Mission 3: The Search for the Missing Caffiene by CAP Vengance (plotline) and FLT Neo (mission)	
We have tracked our stolen caffiene to a remote part of space. The worst part is, is that the MC-90 
Fear has taken it!! We must capture the Fear to show how much better we are!! Capture all containers 
in the area as well: they may contain special items which we may be able to use later on.

Mission 4: The Warspite Reigns Supreme! by CAP Vengance (plotline) and FLT Neo (mission)
Crewers from the Fear have informed us that they shipped some of the caffiene to the training PLT 
Destrier. We must capture the Platform and reteive this last bit of our caff. The MC-90 Fear has been 
re-crewed with a skeleton crew from the Warspite, and will be able to help us with and also has a 
number of it's fighters with it as well. Those trainees don't stand a chance against Task Force 

Mission 5: Great Loss by CAP Vengance (plotline) and FLT Neo (mission)
Following our success against the trainees of Destrier and the disabling of the Ka'tal and the Despot, 
which the IW Command Staff was on, they are furious with us. They have ordered us to relinquish control
of the Fear back to the Fear pilots and staff. The Fear currently is unmanned and incapable of 
defending itself. Make sure no pirates steal it!!

Mission 6: The Final Blow by CAP Vengance (plotline) and FLT Neo (mission)
The command staff have ordered us to give PLT Destrier and the Despot back as well. We are to make 
sure no one at all comes into system and tries to take the Destrier or the Despot. We can't afford to 
lose either craft!!
