Battle Reviews

Gameplay's much the same as the previous battle, only with less waiting around. Still very tedious, even with a fun story !

My twenty-ninth battle in the TIE Corps.

Slightly better than the previous battle, not quite as much sitting around. I really like the idea of flying a TRN and the variety that it introduces, but to do so just so to dogfight starfighters in a craft horribly ill equipped to do so is frustrating. The Fly Transports patch could have been much better utilized.

Battle Bug Reports

HA Pete Mitchell


the transport 1-4 in mission 5 somehow gets destroyed by itself without an enemy. It probably crashes into something, making the mission impossible to complete. This happens on easy and medium.

This battle is about the "Corporate Division News Group", which makes newspapers. In this battle you get to deliver these:)

Story Line
((This is a continuation of TIE-CD1, which was 4 missions long.))

MISSION 5: "CDNG: VSD Warhammer"
When we arrived at Phare III, we split the convoy up into its separate destinations. One of these destinations is the VSD Warhammer, the Corporate Division Flagship. The Command Staff always wants to receive the "Galactic Inquisitor" first, but then again: they pay our wages - so why not?
The VSD Warhammer is escorted by the CD elite squadron, Core, which specializes in test flying the newest Science Office creations. With them in the area you should have no problems might the NR-SSF forces try to pull a stunt again.

MISSION 6: "CDNG: Rescue Freighter"
While you were delivering papers to the Warhammer, the freighter CDNG-BW 2-1 was on its way to Nova Shipyards for its own delivery. At a hyper point it had to cross it was apparently ambushed by NR-SSF Shuttles and captured. You are sent in immediately to recapture it before it hypers out to an unknown location and we loose track of it.
The plan is for our first three Transports to provide cover while number four recaptures the freighter. The moment we have more transports ready these will be send in to help you along. Do not forget to help disabling the freighter so it doesn't hyper out before we can catch it.

MISSION 7: "CDNG: Rescue Transports"
Two of our Transports also got themselves captured by the duke's forces while on their way to deliver the paper to the iBank. The plan is practically the same as before, only more speed is required, as the Transports will reach their hyper point a lot more quickly then the freighter did. As such speed is of the essence in this operation.
Apparently the Duke Perlemian doesn't give up lightly and just won't just let us do our paper round. Strangely he is set on capturing our cargo... probably so his own papers can use the articles as their own, or print on the recycled paper. Do not underestimate his efforts; it seems like he has put an entire Battle group on the case... And as businessmen we're not exactly equipped for this type of combat.

MISSION 8: "CDNG: EPS Arkenstone"
The Cosmic Holonet Corporation designs, builds and maintains Holonet services for EH units and offices. It is lead by CEO Johann Glorick and based on the EPS Arkenstone. As one of the older Corporate Division corporations its shares are a pretty steady and safe buy, unlike our own CDNG ones - which have been dropping all day.
We are going to deliver newspapers to the Corvette Group "Annex" of the CHC. Since we are weary of more NR-SSF attacks, which lower our share value, and cannot get TIE Corps support at the moment, we will run this like a semi-military operation. Team One, which includes you, are on escort while Team Two delivers the papers.

MISSION 9: "CDNG: EPS Accession"
It was a lot of trouble but we finally got to our last delivery. Our shares are on the rise again as a result, which protects us from a hostile take over... by for example the Duke Perlemian - which might have been his plan all along. We still can't get TIE Corps support so you and Core Squadron will be our defense against any more attacks by his forces.
The Fleet Imaging Corporation is a collective of artists that is responsible for most of the holographs and advertising graphics you see in our newspaper and other media outlets. Its CEO is Monsh Fesou and the net worth of the entire corporation is about 1.2 million IC's... As you can see they have been doing well for themselves... This explains their large order of newspapers this morning.
