Battle Reviews

COL Locke Setzer



I am admittedly a sucker for battles that try to incorporate historical EH events into them, so I am very predisposed to like this one. But I thought it was pretty great! Great briefings, solid plot, good design. It provides a number of missions that asks the player to do something different from the norm, which I also greatly enjoy. So maybe it's just hitting me in the right place, serving up the kind of thing I'm looking for in the compendium these days, but I loved it.

An interesting plot kicked off by a silly fun first mission.

My ninety-forth battle in the TIE Corps.

An interesting mission, though the first one where you're setting up for a party I don't really understand. Not sure how that fit into the story line exactly. Mission 5 has a slight bug that can be worked around by sending home your wingmen and then harassing the Idiot's Array giving the enemy T/B's a chance to get ordinance away at the Intrepid. This bug really should be addressed though.

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.

COL Phalk Sturm



A very good battle. Most missions are action packed yet following closely the excellent plotline. It revives old memories of the split of the rDB and it's greatly put into flying missions. The only assignment that bluntly fell out of place was mission 1, exceedingly long and pointless in my opinion. Otherwise, this is an excellent battle.

I enjoyed these missions until the one where you have to shoot the corvette down to 25% one. For me the Corvette went into the base and I ended up shooting the base with lasers until it died. Somehow that finished the mission but it took a lot longer than I care about to figure that part out.

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. These missions were mostly pretty quick. There's some waiting around and idle time, but it's definitely not the worst I've seen. The hit-boxes on the transports in the final mission are always weird, but that's not the mission's fault.

RA Genie



A mixed bag of goods. A lot of great effort was put into creating very specific scenarios. Mission 5 is the one that best demonstrates it. Excellent and yet it left you scratching your head a bit as some events within it were not clear.

AD Stryker



The plot is pretty good and the missions are mostly bug-free, but I don't really consider this a DB battle as you seemingly only play as a DB Battleteam once. This could easily have been marketed as a TC battle with generic Imperial defectors, and it would likely have worked better.

AD Hav Antiel



A solid battle, but there were some inconsistencies from mission to mission. Like other DB missions, the choice of craft was a little suspect. Personally, it was hard to attack a squadron of TIE/INs flying as Rho Squadron with Rebel IFF.

CM Wisal Pol-Jo



A really enjoyable battle. Looking forward to flying part 2! :)

FA Marcin Szydlowski



To be honest, plot is pretty good, but from time to time unclear. Some missions are extremly good, some very poor. Overall, an average battle.

Good set of mission, No real problems

Mission 5, one objective is to allow the Intrepid to be driven off (which requires shields dropped to 50%). However, your wingmen (if you dont send them home) and the Idiot's Array (who on easy was invulnerable) slaughter the T/Bs before they can complete their objective. I spent the mission trying to distract the Array so the T/Bs could launch, but still had to attack the Intrepid (my command ship) myself in order to get the shields low enough to compete the objective and finish the mission.

Throughout: Clan Ludo Kressh is spelt incorrectly.

Mission 1: Some of the transport craft collide with the Asteroid Tent. Pirate starships have no waypoints.

Mission 3: Whats up with the 'comp 9' goals?

Mission 4: Rebel capital ships do not have patrol and attack orders, instead they are set to 'circle waypoints'.
