Battle Reviews

VA Locke Setzer



Straightforward premise with some fun action! Only thing I can ding it on is the FRG's orders and some potential harry situations with the FRTs potentially colliding with the FRG (although I kind of thought it made things fun, to be honest)

CM scottrick



Very good mission and fun to play. Knocking one point because the mission critical transports can collide with each other, and that is pretty odd and I assume unintentional.


CM Nova Discordia



A very enjoyable mission, with a great mix of inspection duties and some dogfighting as well. Background story worked well and had some thought into it.

COL Phalk Sturm



Simple and old-school. My favourite kind of Free mission. Fly the Space Cadillac in a variety of roles: space superiority, interdiction, protection and seizure, even some of the never-grows-old capital ship sinking. Everything is possible in the all-easy cockpit of the TIE Defender. Death-in-a-ball will rumble about dispatching alphabet fighters, -but beware, some are packing advanced missiles-, then looting cargo and sweeping every witness. Perfect. Good material for a competition since it's simple, no tricks involved, but it will be hard to squeeze every point out of it. A golden classic from Hogan.

Overall this free mission was well designed and developed, and a breath of fresh air. The plot is developed and logical, which is difficult to pull off in a constrained format such as a free mission; the briefing provided the necessary background information. It was evident that some work had gone into testing the mission, and I didn't see any obvious bugs or concerns. Well done to Robert Hogan.

GN Silwar Naiilo



A fun battle with a variety of goals. The briefing is well-written and informative, and sets the scene for the plot. I'll ding the mission 1/4 of a point for some of the enemies hypering in from "position zero" leading to space wind, but that still rounds up to 5. With plenty of targets, a potential competition mission. Well done!

MAJ Wreckage



Very well rounded mission. From inspecting to Dogfighting, you get to do it all. Plus you get to play as Sin Squadron, so I am going to be a lil bias. Great mission though.

COL Aardvark



I enjoyed this mission. The briefing was straight-forward and thematic and the gameplay was fun. You are required to utilize a variety of piloting skills including dogfighting, wingman management, time management/prioritization, capture, protection and capital ship attacks. An all-around good mission.
