Battle Reviews

GN Master



I enjoyed this one, great story and well built.
A few wait times but not too bad. Mission three was interesting.

VA Locke Setzer



It's better than the TIE version, mostly because the goals are simplified and the plot/objectives are more clear. Can't decide if Mission #3 is the best part or worse part about it though...

LC andr3



There is some story to it and the missions are quite nice and different from each other.

COL Phalk Sturm



Battle is well developed and the story line about the dark artifact is compelling and immersive. Also, having the chance to fly the A-9 Gunship is a bonus, since it's a Sith only superfighter I have wanted to fly for a long time. However, the 4th mission is nearly impossible to complete having a few of your critical FRGs colliding against each other or the PLT Icarus. This needs to be addressed.

LT Kal J'qan



Not nearly as good as some of the other reviews suggest. The plot is rather silly (especially when blowing up fellow DB ships, only for them to reappear in the next mission), and the custom craft are really only a small redeeming feature. The third mission is way too hectic, with Frigates flying around all over the place shooting at each other; it's very hard to work out which ones you're supposed to kill in the heat of battle. In the last mission you fly an unshielded T/I, which is supposed to be challenging of course, but it just gets frustrating when your wingmen fly into you and destroy your ship. It would help if the orders for the wingmen were a little more sophisticated, so they don't all go after the same enemy fighter (and thus endangering you).

VA Astix



This battle's a beaut. Humourous, bug-free and enjoyable. I had a spot of bother installing the craft, but hey I'm an eejit. One of the best custom battles I've flown.

GN Abel Malik



This ones a pretty good DB xwa battle, well worth flying

Battle Bug Reports

GN Dunta Polo


Battle requires Hyperion fighter but this isn't stated on the compendium.

LT Kal J'qan


In mission 4, after a certain amount of time, your Frigates (mission critical craft) follow a flight plan which causes two of them (I don't remember which) to fly through each other, usually destroying one of them. This means that you have to finish the mission before they reach this point in their respective flight plans, and also that you can't stay to mop up all the enemy fighters - you have to end the mission before all of them are destroyed, thus limiting your score arbitrarily.
