Battle Reviews

Alright little battle. Nothing special though and quite repetative.

I've been flying through the battles of this creator. Generally they're quite similar, this one at least showed some signs of additional sophistication. I was quite happy until the last mission, where I ended up having to do slow strafing runs against high AI frigates with stupid orders while my pristine ISD sat there and did absolutely nothing while within range. Frustrating.

Enjoyable battle with different types of missions that aren't too hard. Most are centered from the perspective of having to do dogfights, but there are some strike missions as well. One thing that kind of throws me off from the story is to see pirates with gunboats. I mean, that's like seeing Ferraris driven by Fast and the Furious guys. How are these people getting their hands on these cars? Must be stolen.

I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.

Really not a fan, the third and fourth missions are a cluster of Z-95s with a grudge and unlimited supply of missiles. The third one you should take out the shield of the asteroid first so it can be boarded ASAP. The fourth is about the same, but you have an ISD if things go south. Just not really enjoyable otherwise.

The final mission was a lot of fun. Plenty of baddies to shoot at and some cap ships to worry about. The story is fairly well paced with missions leading into each other.

A decent, simple and straightforward set of missions. Fly a T/A while battling some pirates somewhere in the galaxy. Certainly not the most original plotline, but it has a decent level of difficulty and is all about flying and killing targets. Nothing to think too much. And it's an honest handful of points to add to anyone's FCHG ratings. Worth a try.

A flawed but decent battle. The difference between the three difficulties is good. Hard is Hard and Easy is... easy. I had some frustrating moments, especially since in the last mission you have to clear a lot of fighters and they are equipped with advanced concussion missiles. Meaning that even with full shields one missile hit and you are dead. So, on hard this battle is a bit of a struggle. For those who want the challenge, try it out.

I played on Easy. This is another 'fly a TIE Advanced for all 4 missions and just shoot low-skill enemies'. About the only thing going for it is that it's a quick finish. My biggest gripe is that the mission goals are very vague. The first missions goals are literally labeled 'Huh?' and 'What's this?'. The first mission also has an invincible Corellian Corvette for some reason.

Average battle. Although the idea is nice, there's too many mediocre things. Cap Ships without orders, no animated briefings, many typos and I hate the use of invincible ships.

Four missions where you basically do the same over and over again. The only difference between the missions is the way they end, sometimes there are Gunboats around to take out something bigger, and you have to pray they don't get destroyed. Too easy.

One of Angel's better battles.

I sat through the first 10 minutes of M1 twice and nothing happened. This is completely unacceptable mission design for any platform, but especially XvT. Please modify mission parameters so that we don't have to waste who knows how much time waiting to do something in the mission.

cap ship orders all over are missing
