EH Ship Patch for XvT

Battle Reviews

Dull, monotonous and mindless 'shoot everything that moves' type mission where you will be missile spammed into oblivion on anything higher than medium difficulty due to the sheer numbers of A-Wings it throws at you.

Oh and Rogue Sqdn is here. Again.

Mission was average assignment where player is piloting a T/A while covering GUNs after a captured rebel TRN sends in a distress call. Lots of action and fun to fly, until after 12 minutes and slaughtering dozens of A-Ws and X-Ws, plus a CRS and a DREAD, you discover that all that is less than 60% of the total rebel force. Poorly balanced. Try elsewhere or unless there isn't anything else you can fly.

Not a bad mission to fly. Not quite 'realistic' in terms of the timing of craft deployment from your opponents, but not a mission breaker. Just a classic Imperial vs Rebel space battle with a few tweaks. No real bugs to report, but I do agree with the current one submitted about the Gunboats continuing on to disable craft instead of destroying them. A good mission for newer pilots to learn how to track and shoot down incoming warheads.

Good Mission. I liked it, and it was easy too.

Two thumbs up!

Battle Bug Reports

LCM Von Goosington


ISD Grey Wolf does not engage enemy capital ships.
Mission 'completes' without kill 100% of enemy objective being achieved
Weird Rebel Tug 'Repair' HYPERS into combat at one point.

GN Dunta Polo


The first flight of GUN Crusader arrives from hyperspace instead of the ISD Grey Wolf, and once it disables the TRN Xion, it continues to disable attacking Rebel craft instead of destroying them. ISD Grey Wolf and the Rebel taskforce capital ships come to a stop within range and do not fire upon each other. Starfighter orders are not very targeted, which can result in A-wings and TIE Advanced\\Interceptors attacking capital ships without suitable warheads. GW's in-flight message warning about attacking Y-wings appears very late, when they have already fired multiple torpedoes.
