Great battle.
Well built, amazing story. Loved the usage of the MC-90.

GN Triji Boliv



This was a really great battle. I loved the use of non-standard craft (at least for most of it). Missions all worked as intended, and the story was pretty solid.

This is a really hard one to rate: there's a story line, compelling missions, very creative use of what the engine can do... but the it is one of those battles where you have to do exactly what the mission creator expected you to do in exactly the right order and timing. So you will fail over and over again till you find out what the mission really wants from you. What could and should have been a five star battle ends up being a two.

COL Phalk Sturm



One of Dempsey's wonderful creations. The plotline is so immersive and clenching. Well written, with lots of surprises and makes you feel a Bounty Hunter. You get to fly a variety of ships and starfighter in the most various roles. Only one word of criticism is regarding some missions to be a bit too long and may turn tedious. Besides that, this is a must-fly for all those who want something different. Dempsey should consider creating a Mandalorian-based series of battles. I assure it would be become a blockbusting success.

I agree with others, this battle is awesome.

Incredible! Outstanding! Dempsey did it again for the good. This battle has one of the best built plots I ever had the pleasure to follow, even when you must do 80% of the battle flying outside the EH. I won't go into spoilers (that wouldn't be fair and up to 20 loyal EH officers trying to use my throat for scythes sharpening isn't my idea of fun); just let's say that even using one of our classic main plots as its basics, the battle later develops it in a way such great you won't ever be able to forget. On top of all this it must be said that all missions (maybe being 5 the worst if any) display a notable example of XWA building knowledge with tons of ships and structures working perfectly together for the sakes of main objectives. And all this considering that its beta testing phase was a true pain in you-know-where due to its old bugs! Now all them seem to be fixed and this is a MUST-FLY.

Impressive battle by our Tactical Officer! A very interesting plot and very well executed. Gotta love flying the YT-2000 in the first missions. Well done!

Mission 4 cannot be completed. The MC90 cruisers that are supposed to be captured/protected do not spawn into the game, and the shuttles that are supposed to dock with them circle endlessly.

SL Zekk Terrik


This battle was really fun - however, mission 4 (I think) where you have to capture the two cruisers...they aren't even there. As in they are completely nonexistent never appear. There is one cruiser that is not an MC90 but my wingmen blow it to hell.

You are on a special assignment for the Intelligence Division. Your mission is to pose as a 
bounty hunter and infiltrate an organization of bounty hunters. Rumours have reached the SDIR 
that they are planning a massive offensive on the Emperor's Hammer, in an attempt to apprehend 
or kill the Fleet Commander. The first step requires you to infiltrate the organization, and 
become part of the conspiracy. After that, use whatever means necessary to thwart their plans
and destroy the organization.
