Battle Reviews

Pretty straightforward battle, lost points for poor hyperspace locations requiring you to sit for long periods of time waiting for ships to transit. Thankfully TIE has 4x....

Not as bad as they all say. Doesn't deserve a zero.
There's still long wait times tho.
If it wasn't for that it would be a respectable battle.

Any battle with a mission that finishes after 10 real minutes of time acceleration waiting for slow shuttles to complete their mission and hyper out gets a score of 0 from me.

The plot is nothing special and the missions are pretty poor indeed. Far too much waiting around.

The plot had potential, but the many errors in design made this simple mission unbearable. No briefing questions and too many bugs.

The "Battle to destroy the invincible ship" idea has already been done again and again...but that's not why I gave this battle a "1"... I hate waiting! I hated waiting for the Cargo Ferries to leave in Mission #2. I hated waiting for the shuttles to dock with the platform and cruiser (why couldn't they just use the hangar?!) in mission #3. I hated waiting for a Carrack Cruiser to slooowwwlllyyy make its way to board a disabled shuttle several klicks away. I didn't care much for the story and some things didn't make sense (like why a Rebel minefield was planted a few klicks away from an established Imperial base, yet nobody would make any effort to attempt to clear it...including the base turbolasers that were in range?). The lack of briefing officer questions didn't help establish the story line that much. Lots of waiting = long angry review from me.

Battle Bug Reports

AD Hav Antiel


In mission 3, mission critical flight group (Rebel B-Wing Revenge) only appears on hard difficulty. Imperial Carrack Cruiser GRISH'NAK must board Rebel Z-95 The End, which only appears when 100% of B-Wing Revenge has been destroyed. It's only possible to complete the mission on hard difficulty.
