Battle Reviews

No input by player needed for mission to complete (which takes approximately 20 seconds from mission start).

Poor fighter choices (A Single TIE/Advanced with Heavy Rockets supposed to take on a Mon Cal?)

'Feeding' of enemy starfighters (2 at a time jump in as relief effort) with high friendly AI numbers which jump them immediately.

Poor flight orders for A-Wing mean they sit there static and again become sitting ducks for you and your AI wingmates.

Genuinely avoid.

only good for a free point over with before it starts.

Pretty poor mission really - as per other reviews, the primary goals complete themselves, and then it just dogfighting rebels, who seem intent on sacrificing themselves in endless waves for your pleasure at killing them....then the A wings turn up, but see bug report on them!

No bugs, but a mission that should probably be reviewed by the TAC as it essentially completes itself with no input from the pilot whatsoever. You can actually start the mission, put the kettle on and then come back 1 minute later to find yourself victorious.

Very bizarre mission, not in objective or play-style, but on easy at least this one is over before I knew what was going on. I easily recommend it if you're looking for quick points in a tournament or fchg - it practically flies itself.

i played this as part of rtf 2021. this mission was pretty quick and i played with unlimited waves. i got diabled half way through the missions just as the capital ship was destroyed narrowly completing the mission. recommend this for a quick mission

I flew into the opposite direction for a minute and change and created a meme or two for RTF and responded to Discord messages as this completed itself. At no point was this mission playtested, but whatever I'll take the free RTF points.

I played on Easy. I'm not even sure that I'd call this a mission. Your target literally gets killed before you have time to do much of anything in this battle. If you like free points, this is a great mission. Otherwise, there's not much here.

Waste of time. Do not fly it unless you are going for completionist or some competition. People who make this kind of mission should be airlocked. :)

Fastest mission ever!. At least for the primary goals, but after that there is a lot to destroy or shoot down, for those who are willing to stay. Fast point.

Maybe the easiest mission I have ever flown. I think primary goals were completed inside of 30 seconds. Not entirely sure what the point of the A-Wings are...just makes the story/mission seem really dumb. No bugs to report.

This mission has some very easy primary goals: most of your allies do the work. Fortunately, there are many extra kills to make after the primary goals to earn more points. Good overall mission and easy FCHG point.

Battle Bug Reports

LCM Von Goosington


1. A-Wings have no orders and sit static.

2. I'm 90% sure I saw one of the Neb B's suicide into the Mon Cal, which caused its death, but really don't want to replay to double check.

CM Nova Discordia


Has no effect on completing mission - but the A Wings who turn up seem to be missing orders, as they warp in and just wait to be killed....
