Battle Reviews

LT Rosh Nyine



Not a challenging mission at all, more like a tutorial. There's no real danger here as you get enough missiles to take care of anything that could really harm you. A sort of replacement from the usual gunnery training missions, but with way more limited waves of starfighters.

If your wingmen are not sent home, there is very little chance of being taken down. Without story and without challenge, I would only recommend it to very new pilots, and even then I'd suggest sending wingmen home, as previously said.

Overall, I give it a three because it accomplishes its purpose, but there's nothing that makes this mission special.

CM Jagged Fell III



Fun basic mission. I am not very good at XvT but it was easily doable on Easy

VA Locke Setzer



Perfectly fine mission to fight some ships and blow up some cargo. Nothing special but nothing awful either. A good time!

LCM Von Goosington



Good classic convoy raiding. Confused why some Rebel aligned TIE Interceptors turned up.

LCM Nate Towback



This was a fun mission with a mix of different fighter types to take out with decent waves of them that weren't too overwhelming but still a light challenge. And it includes a quick convoy mop up to feel that extra accomplishment and ties in a reason for performing the mission with the lore.

CM Nova Discordia



Enjoyable mission with a variety of targets to destroy - well worth flying.

GN Mark Schueler



No flaws so I can't give a really low score, however the mission just wasn't exciting.

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. This mission at least has some different objectives happening. You need to kill some Freighters, then a Corvette, then a bunch of starfighters. There's enough going on that it's a bit different from normal missions, which is nice.

Sometimes people are happy with a mission being bug free and give it higher points. I think it should be a minimum. Corvettes and starfighters that's what this mission is. Not terrible, not great.

COL Phalk Sturm



Could be good stuff for a competition with minor tweaks. Although not a very challenging mission, surely it was some minutes of fun shooting at idle targets and some dogfighting. Nothing brainy, just old shooting at things, which still is very much effective as fun gets.

LC SkyShadow



An absolute belter of a competition mission. The premise is simple. You are Avenger Squadron, a squad of four TIE Advanced and you are to strike a convoy. The mission itself if well made and caters for dog fighters and big ship hunters alike. I like that the options for warheads, beams and countermeasures are locked out as I feel this gives a more even baseline for competitions.
The mission text is well written and the mission briefing is of a good quality.
The difference between medium and hard is night and day. Well worth a fly.

RA Genie



Bug free... almost. A transport will collide with another craft and be destroyed if you wait long enough. This mission started well. Promising premise, felt it could have been a race of performance to get a high score. Instead by the end of it, it feels lazy and unfinished. The VSD does not send any fighters and the Rebels themselves are very linear and boring. The convoy are sitting ducks and do not even put up a fight. Giving it a 2, but it could easily have been a 4 with more effort.

LC Rando



Not much to say about this one. It's a very small, simple mission, and it's quite easy, even on hard. The title and briefing description suggests there's more to this mission, claiming it will be difficult to get a good score, perhaps an extra challenge at some point, but that's not really the case. Getting a good score is easier than most missions. In fact, it's probably a little too easy. There is some annoyance if you play it a certain way, which can make it difficult to grab all the points. But it's relatively quick to finish and repeat if necessary. There isn't much to destroy, only a convoy and some waves of fighters. The convoy itself is mostly harmless. Because of its simplicity it's pretty much bug free, though the convoy pathing could've been better. Besides the misleading title, it's a relaxing easy mission, a nice break from others in the Battle Center. But it's also kind of forgettable. When I revisited this for a competition, I kept thinking it was something else, something larger scale.

CPT Bodo Dent



Nice mission, kind of easy but good.

COL Rau Aznable



It's a standard mission. "Take fighters, then convoy" style, but still provides some challenge. It could be a bit better though.

MAJ Fox Malloy



Overall a pretty good mission. A bit easy, but maybe thats because I havent played it on hard yet. Was a bit strapped for time when flying it. Again, great mission. Keep it up.

CPT TI-40026



GGRREEAAT Mission! love it. Lots of Fun, Not too hard, Not too easy. Its great. I suggest it for anyone looking for a good time, and some activity.

it was good

CM Xanatos Screed



Wow. No waiting, not boring, always action ! Best mission I´ve ever flown.

SL Derrek Wolf



What a good mission!Not too hard,not too easy.One of the best missions ever flown.

CM Riccardo Grazioli



Very good mission. Not too hard but no too easy. Excelent on hard skill level.

LCM Enerum Shka



I thought this was the most fun I've ever had flying in XvT single player, just because you kept getting bombarded by ships to destroy.
