Battle Reviews




A very fun battle - complex design, engaging plot, and entertaining missions. Play it!

Possible bug in mission 2, with some of the TIE Advanced getting stuck trying to enter hyperspace, but which seemed to be avoided by heeding the briefing's advice to avoid damaging them too much.

GN Master



Another fun Jagged battle and a good installment to the saga.
Well built and enjoyable but it doesn't really break any new ground like the previous battle did.
Not to say there's anything wrong with the battle, it has a great story and care has been taken in building it and the radio messages are also good and emails were great.

The Expanded Universe has held a special place in many of our hearts and minds, me especially. One of my
favorite book series was the X-Wing Series by Michael A Stackpole and Aaron Allison. It was these stories
that motivated me to pick up X-Wing Alliance back in the early 2000's. Here I am setting out to make at
least a series of 4 battles retelling the battles and story of the initial four books of the X-Wing series.

This battle is based upon the story laid out in the book X-Wing: The Krytos Trap by Michael A Stackpole. The
events of the book have necessarily changed due to the Emperor's Hammer's involvement during the first two
books, see my previous Battles.

From our first Battle with them, Rogue Squadron's attempt to take Borleias to be a staging point for their
attack on Coruscant failed due to the TIE Corps timely intervention. And things were looking like they would
continue with the Emperor's Hammer's, and by extension the Empires, continued dominance over the New Republic.

But the New Republic deceived the Empire's Intelligence Division and our forces were drawn into two feint
attacks, allowing the bulk of the New Republic's forces to attack and capture Coruscant. We have rightly been
humbled by this turn of events and are now searching for a way to support Isard's Empire in its effort to topple
the New Republic and retake Coruscant.
