Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



I am not as down on this as others have been but I agree that the dynamic goals could have been used to give clearer instructions on what to do without showing all of your hand at the start. Also, everything is way to spread out and without using infinite rockets clearing all those bases and capital ships would have been a real slog

HA Anahorn Dempsey



Sorry master, but this is crap. Vague objectives, way too long (had to wait 10+ minutes for a hyperbuoy to take me to the next region), friendlies leave before the mission is done, hostiles waste their time attacking an invulnerable hyper buoy, way too few rockets to deal with that many enemy caps, when you complete, you get a msg saying "let's hop aboard that ESC" but no ESC. instead, you have to spend another 10 minutes killing off the remaining enemy fighters (not a goal) before you can alt+q your way out of this mess. And my personal peeve: I HATE invulnerable ships. If that ISD is to survive, get it some proper hyper-out order. Would be nice of your friendly caps to follow you to the battle area though...

LCM Danel



OK, a lot of targets and shooting but: Briefing instructions are very poor and debriefing too, nothing specified about the goals,you must devine wich are the goals to complete the mission and where are;OK,initiative and capacity of improvisation is very important for a fighter pilot, but some idea about what your can find in the mission is elemental;the target enemy base(s)are located in two differents sectors,you must discover that by yourself,the friendly fleet is completly inutil and passive; after 61 kills and 42 min come the annonce:"loss",why??Misterious,mistery...

COL Mouse Droid



A very interesting battle with a LOT of action. You have many targets to choose from and the battlefields look really cool. I rate it a 4, but if there was more storyline I would give it a 5! Little nit to pick: the briefing looks very nice, but is too fast.

GN Master



A great comp mission, you get the choice of killing so many differnt types of targets as its based around one large battle. Enjoy all!
