Battle Reviews

Destroy an ISD and 2 VSDs while protecting your own ISD while flying a Missile Boat in a solo flight. All starships will have starfighter orders and move about wildly... perhaps even colliding with each other (or you?). I would rank it worse, but they did think to include a reload craft for your Missile Boat, so I'll give them credit for at least providing a pathway towards having enough rockets to deal with the issue.

This mission features my beloved ISD Colossus and the old friends at Nu, but somehow failed to be great one. The flight orders for the capital ships and the enemy starfighters are unpolished, and they sit there crammed and idle while your MIS brings them down. Besides, the single loadout in your craft makes things a bit tedious since there are no reloaders, and sinking 3 destroyers will take more than you carry when you launch. Dogfighting T/Ds and burning them is always fun, as it is to obliterate traitorous Star Destroyers, but the mission could have been so much better with a proper beta testing and corrections to it. But I loved seeing the Colossus. My soft-spot.

No less than four cap ships with starfighter orders plus fighters in groups of six and nine make this mission a ridiculous crashfest. Oh, and you fly a Missile Boat. Zero.

I like to play any mission!!! I give him high 5 since this person took time to make new mission to my favorite platform!!! Nice Mission.
