    Whoever decided it was a good idea to start you next to a station at a dead stop is a terrible person.

    Arrrrrgggggggg, horrible mission, but actually really well designed. For me, with limited time to game, getting killed all the time was not fun, but that said, really is one of those I would return to, when I have time, to see if I can do any better next time around.

    Appropriately hard on hard.
    Good mission, T/A are evil.
    Well put together.

    Definitely put me through my paces to get into the flow but once you know you can dogfight 6 fighters at once with low shields, the mission is doable.

    40 min dull laser grind. Do not play if you do not have to for a competition or such.

    May be my least favorite start to a mission ever! Personal preference, but I'll never like a mission that you can't finish your first time, and the fact that this will absolutely kill you in 3 seconds on your first try is a huge downgrade for me.

    The win conditions are unnecessarily obtuse, but what it comes down to is 1) destroy a Platform (while X-Wings are harassing you, but they'll go away once the Platform is destroyed and there's nothing to stop you from just disabling them to control their appearance) and then 2) destroy half of the T/As that appear when the platform is destroyed. Order of operations doesn't make much sense to me.

    I did like the Nav Point bail out option, and particularly appreciated that it is clearly defined by the briefing. And while it's mostly just about dogfighting some X-Wings and then some T/As, it's balanced to be challenging but not overbearing. But I'm still stinging from that intro.

    The very start of the mission is extremely hectic as you desperately try to survive a point blank barrage from a platform - it can feel unfair but it's a neat surge of adrenaline !

    The rest of the mission is a fight against four waves of X-Wings before finishing off the platform and facing off against a wave of T/A, with optional (and welcome !) help from 3 T/D.

    Amazing start and amazing platform. A platform that bites! I like this mission, may revisit it on a harder difficulty at some point in the future. Yes, yes, that list is growing.

    Challenging since your T/D will go solo against sharp gunners on a PLT and several rebel fighters, but not impossible at all. Last part of the mission will pit you against some high skilled pilots in T/As. Worth a try.

    Enjoyable mission with a awesome storyline. I like the way the story blends with the mission. More of these please! The only 'problem' is that you first have to destroy the PLT before the T/As come in, but that just adds a little more difficulty.
