Battle Reviews

CM Jagged Fell III



I am docking it down for two reasons, for a battle named Marg Sabl, we never did a Marg Sabl...and second in that there are too many allied fighters, there never felt like there was any threat, by the time I would target a fighter it would be either half destroyed or just destroyed by another.

COL Phalk Sturm



Decent battle worth some good dogfighting and plenty of fun. You are riding T/A against multiple alphabets and escorting Skiprays bombing some rebel flotilla. Thrawn will be watching, so perform or lose face. Worth some FCHG point for Chiss.

COL Angel



I really liked this mission.A lot of dogfighting,I love it.Congratz to the creator.

I really liked this mission. It wasnt perfect but it was pretty near. The dogfighting was cool. The only problem was the Tie Fighters kept on ramming me and getting destroyed :( Anyway I was in it so that was cool :)

CPT Marc Kendoran



All in all a good mission. The story was good but next-time you should make the mission more interesting. Not only dog-fighting. It was nice to see the Python Squadron in real-combat action :) Good Job Vallyn.

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! THEY ARE ALL AROUND ME! GET THEM AWAY!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT WAS AN HOUR OF PURE HELL! 4 A/FRGs, 3 wings of fighters and all you wing men die in the first 5 mins!!!!!!! Then the rebs try to stop you from getting back to the ISD for protection so you are all alone fighting 8 ships at a time with more flights constantly comming in!!!!!!!!!!!! I spent 10 mins after 1 hour of dog fighting trying to kill the _40_ pilots floating in space for a total of 400 points in pilots killed!!!! Unfortunatly they count for nothing since I had to use invincibility to last through the dog fights! Fortunatly for me I am a my wings nurse and a jedi so I could hold of the pain till I finished but My arm was killing me for like 5 hours after wards! So basically what I am saying is I never want to fly a mission like that ever again!

Good mission, no bugs, but lost major points in that it's 30 solid minutes minimum of dogfighting...gets a little old..i racked up 29 A-Wings, 67 X-Wings, and 4 Assualt Frigate kills in that 30 minutes...and my arm hurts. :P

Brief Story Line
After that last inspection mission, it's time to link forces with Thrawn. The newly appointed COM, RA Hawkie visits Thrawn with 2 flights of Fights to talk about strategy. Near the end, the Chimaera is attacked. You'd better warm-up that control yoke, because there are three wings of rebbies to kill. That doesn't include the Assault Frigates eating away at the Chimaera. 

You need the XWA (or at least all the ships involved there), as far as I know
no other patches are needed.
