Battle Reviews

Average battle. Not Frodo's best.
Wingmen were useless in some missions.
Too many wait times.

First real Frodo battle that just didn't do it for me. Some of the missions were rather boring. Lots of protect missions throughout and to be honest in my opinion those are the worst ones when you fight tons and tons of waves of enemies, or when the protected target is just suicidal.

There are no flaws per se, but it also doesnt offer anything spectacular. The parrot jokes, I get that some may find them funny. That one didnt connect with me but I am not holding it against him either. Give it a whirl.

MAJ Jaxx Nassin



KWOK! Such a fun battle! SKWAK! Must keep CPT Cook happy! He's the best! But seriously, it's a fun battle, albeit short. There's a few missions that will keep you on your toes.

This battle left me with mixed emotions. Some missions are challenging and will keep you on your toes, and others are just tedious and will have the player bringing down REPYDs only with lasers. The plotline is funny enough to make you smile now and then, but these pitfalls in the action were a major blow for the overall score of the battle. Fly it if you have already flown the good ones.

The battle is good and it's worth any efforts to fly it the best way possible. Excellent work, Frodo! The best from it? The Parrot of course!! xD The worst? Well, not "worst" but it's faaaar from the usual Hobbit's imaginative battles as it only involves the classic objectives (annihilate the base/protect the big-fat ship/protect the bloody shuttle/disable yet another convoy).

Entertaining Battle, Captain Cook cooks up some great excitement.

Battle Bug Reports

GN Master


Same as already reported.
The SHU has a terrible flight plan resulting in it being very hard to enter the hanger of the SSD.
You can send the SSD home which makes the mission easier.
Need to give the SHU a new start point and flight plan so its near the hanger.

HA Anahorn Dempsey


M5 (possibly others as well): SSD probably shouldn't be taking orders from player, but telling SSD to go home was by far the easiest way to win since the SHU has issues entering the hanger...

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 5: SHU Hobbit has difficulty entering the SSSD Sovereign's hangar due to its approach vector. T/A Gemenia do not engage the Rebel attackers.
