Battle Reviews

I was a bit on the fence for a score, but it's well executed, well planned, and honesty pretty fun from start to finish. Yes you have to wait 2 minutes before anything happens in most missions, but considering they're all patrols (and are setting a mood), I think that's fine. Mission #3 was my fav, although I had to rely on craft jumping to spread the torpedoes around intelligently.

An enjoyable mission, though with some questionable weapons loadouts - in any difficulty other than Easy, your Missile Boats lack the punch to destroy the Frigates and Cruiser in addition to the freighters and A-Wings that swarm you. I was also under the assumption that the Dark Brotherhood was restricted to Interceptors only?

Solid battle. A good plotline, with the treat of flying a variety of roles which keep the player on his/her toes. Some parts seem excessive about waiting and there is some poor coordination of your fellow operatives, which will force you to sink a SHPYD on your lasers only. The lack of reloading craft is certainly a handicap and becomes detrimental to the battle's overall experience. But is a good bunch of points of FCHG worth trying. Fun to fly.

Although there were some parts that were annoying or stupid, this battle is actually very good and I enjoyed it. The last two missions are a real challenge.

Enjoyable, but the waiting is a serious drag

Fun all round :D

great one, I really enjoyed it, especially #3 gave me a hard time, so I rate it a 5

A nice sequence of events, put together to combined a pretty good battle. It may not give you night-mares, but could keep you burning the midnight candle.

cool Battle :) those MTRNS nearly killed me, bad things :)

This battle is a set of combat missions where the Black Omega battleteam has been used. You fly 
the role of an unnamed pilot, a newbie member of Black Omega.

Mission 1 - Cover Attack on Rebel Base:
Black Omega has been assigned to the Frigate Provoker to participate in an attack on Rebel base in the
Ontagio sector. This base has low strategic value, however it's a resupply depot for enemy border 
forces and destruction of it will cut those resupply lines.

Mission 2 - Patrol Duty in Sector 23A:
ESC Brotherhood's Reach has dropped Black Omega in sector 23A. The squadron is here for a standard 
patrol. It's one of the remote sectors, but the Dark Council has received reports about enemy resupply 
convoys passing through the area. Black Omega will stay on patrol duty and engage any enemy ships if 
needed. In case of trouble, STRCK Invigorator has been assigned as support for Black Omega.

Mission 3 - Intercept Enemy Cargo Delivery:
Thanks to intel reports from Black Omega flight recorders, we now know that the Rebels are transiting 
a lot of cargo through the area and we must stop them. This time Black Omega, has been assigned to the
INT Enslaver ammong other squadrons. The INT will stop the Rebels from escaping while Black Omega will
intercept enemy fighters. Our bombers will finish off the cargo ships.

Mission 4 - Defend Platform Ariel:
We have constructed a space platform in sector 23A, to prevent the enemy from sending convoys through
the sector. It is likely that the Rebels will attack however, and Black Omega has been assigned for 
sentry duty. Your orders are to make sure that platform Ariel will survive.
