Battle Reviews

VA Locke Setzer



I think it's OK. More often than not it's pretty playable, although a couple missions required some retries because they necessitated an order of operations in order to be completed. But the saving grace of this battle is that it's for TIE Fighter and you have 4x speed; otherwise, you'd spend half of your time playing this battle just waiting around. It's also one where you're more likely to complete the Bonus Goals before the Primary Goal in a lot of missions.

CM Benji Tandor



The plot is coherent and flows together well. Missions are competently designed but writing needs polish.

My twenty-second battle in the TIE Corps.

COL Phalk Sturm



This one felt like it was fodder to fill a gap in the Rionese series. Not that it had any flaws, except in the last mission where inspecting a pair of CRVs is almost impossible because some squad mates who will not take orders from you almost immediately burn them to ashes. Besides that, flying an X-W against a couple of T/As was a nice invigorating challenge. To wrap this up, the battle is average, could have been better and feels like Ep.II kind of filling material, but it's decent to fly.

  The Rion Confederate is a former Imperial Faction that has joined the New Republic. Grand 
Admiral Ronin has ordered the Infiltrator Wing to disrupt Rebel activities in the Rion Sector. 
As we are using Rebel crafts, we will make think Rion leaders of a treason from their pitiful 
rebel allies.

Mission 1 - Get a Home

  First, we will need a base of operation in the sector; Intel reported us a little pirate base
operating in the Eriin System which will be a perfect place to settle our presence there; 
these pirates have no real interferences with the Rion Confederate, so their "disappearance" 
won't be noticed. The MC90 Fear will lead the operation in the Rion Sector.
  Intruder Flight will disable the pirate platform, while Black Squadron will take care of the 
fighters. We will send an Hammer's Fist ATR to capture the platform as soon as disabled.

Mission 2 - Strengthen Positions

  We have a convoy heading to our new base, in order to strengthen our position. Your mission 
will be to make sure the Transports reach the platform, and that the Freighter Supply delivers
the needed materials to repair the platform shields. Enforcer Squadron will be in charge of 
securing the area. Some pirates may be back from a raid on a rebel convoy, if they show up, 
destroy them after we capture any interesting stuff.

Mission 3 - Hacking Party

  In order to destabilize the Rebel presence in the Rion Sector, we first need to collect 
information relative to the Rion Confederate. We are sending squadrons in recon missions 
throughout the sector.
  Ares Flight III will be in charge of a frequented nav point in the Eriin System. Three 
asteroids are surrounding the area, and we believe a Rion communication system can be found 
on one of them. Your mission will be to inspect the asteroids, and to protect our technician 
team which will set a listening device on the comm asteroid. Be also on the lookout for any
valuable ship which could be captured.

Mission 4 -Shoot'em Up

  The Rebel officer captured in the last mission revealed us the location of an incoming Rebel
convoy in the Rion sector. We will make sure the convoy never reach its destination. Intel will
then send false information through the Rebel comm systems to make them think of a Rion treason. 
  Black Squadron has been assigned to the complete destruction of the convoy. If you can identify
the ships first, that would be good too.

Mission 5 - Bringing Hell

  Destroy a Rion convoy, and bring hell in the relationship between the Rion Confederate and 
the New Republic. We will use special identification code Intel gathered from the Rebels, and 
will destroy a whole convoy... just let a few specific transports to report the attack to the 
Rion HQ. From the information we got from our listening device, some Rion Command Staff member 
should be aboard a Dreadnaught. Killing him in the assault would be perfect, and would surely 
cancel the alliance between the two forces.
