Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



Fun battle with a good story. Pretty quick to fly too.

GN Master



Fun and tough at times but never not-fun.
Good story, well built, simple goal structure. Enjoyable XvT battle.
Easy enough without unlimited waves.

CM Benji Tandor



Short and straightforward with a sensible plot.

My eighty-eighth battle in the TIE Corps.

LC andr3



The good thing is, it can be finished rather quickly.

COL TheBlackxRanger



a very fun battle, i like the storylines as they remind me when legends had black sun and prince xizor. its cool to see sentinel and other Dark Brotherhood teams featured in these battles

VA Locke Setzer



I loved it! There's a couple things I could ding it on (Mission 4's simplicity), but honestly I just really appreciated the fast and furious nature of it. Tough in spots, but missions are fast enough you're more likely to give things multiple goes instead of just dropping the difficulty. Definitely a fun time!

CM Nova Discordia



An enjoyable set of missions - first mission was a little tricky, but just fire everything at the crv so it goes off and then deal with the ties. In the last mission, concentrate on your primary targets.

GN Triji Boliv



I began this battle with a feeling of dread, feeling the first mission was unnecessarily long and drawn out, but the battle improved quickly thereafter with missions 2-4 being quick, easy, and straight forward. Recommend if you're looking for quick missions!

RA Genie



Well crafted, but there were a few unpolished parts here and there especially in the latter missions. The story was good and would probably return to try it on hard!

LC Solohan50



I played on Easy. This was a very quick set of missions. Some missions take less than 2 minutes on Easy, only one takes longer than 5 minutes. There's not much to them, honestly. I'm curious to see what they'd look like on higher difficulty.

COL Phalk Sturm



Nice, balanced, yet challenging battle. Flying the T/A is a bit repetitive, but the old Avenger is formidable can-do-all little fighter. Dogfighting was fun, fast and furious. My kind of battle. Do not miss it.

AD Hav Antiel



This battle was fun to play. The missions weren't too difficult, and there were moments that were enjoyable. In mission 2, racing to destroy the shuttles before they dock was fun, and in mission 3 I enjoyed LEEROY JENKINSing past the other fighters (no wingman?) to take out the bombers and corvette. Mission 4 had some fun dogfights with challenging T/As.

COL Rau Aznable



Great battle, very enjoyable, challenging and fun at the same time. The only minus is that we have a separate fighter helping us instead of a real wingman most of the times.

Ekim Yellek



Good battle. Plot is well concieved, mission 2 could be more difficult, after dying once i put all power from the beam to engines whipped past the T/I's and got the E/S's without engaging anyone else, taking less then 2 minutes... but great battle none-the-less

MAJ Dae Cam



Excellent battle, one of the best I've flown in a long time. The plotline was very novel, making the battle quite enjoyable. Further, I really liked how it demonstrated that small unshielded craft in swarms, and flown by killed pilots can be extremely deadly. Finally, hitting all those small targets really seemed to help my aim in MP :)

COL Drak



Fun,Fun,Fun. Want more!!

MAJ Mairin Astoris



Excellent, and very enjoyable. :)

SL Kitten-claw



Nice little battle - too easy in places. Mission 4 seemed to give victory after destruction of a single craft, but still well done.

LC Frey Gallandro



COOL !!! Continue !!!

MAJ Erryc Lasitter



GREAT mission. Great Storyline. Keep up the good work!

Battle Bug Reports

CM Vanguard88


Throughout the battle: Multiple flight groups missing capital letters.

Mission 3: T/B Xisor's Claw -> T/B Xizor's Claw. Tie Bomber Xisor's Claw has their mothership set to T/A C/Vanguard instead of the CRV Xizor's Fang, meaning that when they get under 50% hull they will try to go to hyperspace but cannot, instead flying in circles.. T/B Xisor's Claw arrives from hyperspace despite the fact that they do not have hyperdrives added.

My thanks to George Lucas fore creating the wonderful universe to play in.  I was almost AWOL to be enlisted into the army the night Star Wars opened up in 1977.

Also thanks to Troy Dangerfield for making a hassle-free mission editor.  It's still work designing missions, but it is a very user-friendly program.
