EH Ship Patch for XvT

Battle Reviews

Another good mission where you have to defend a platform that you are assigned on. There's a frigate and several corvettes that will try to suicide run to the platform. Taking them out is fun because you are a bit pressed for time to ensure that they don't just ram the platform. Good idea by the creator and definitely different than most platform defend missions.

A rough diamond. A bit more polish and it could have been even greater. I just love the fact you spawn right on top of a platform. Shows creativity and beauty in designing this mission. I also like the charging corvettes.

Good basic mission. The GUN with the proper ordnance can be such a death dealing machine, and this is no different. Even the waiting time for the ISD to arrive was not too long. Not the fastest of missions, but surely entertaining and worth a try

A mission of average quality. Though possibly a little too easy, once one learns to play it right.

I thought this was a nice basic mission. I wanted to go with a 4 rating but what held me back was; the game play was the same on all 3 difficulty levels which is cool by me. I first tried on hard and it took me a couple times to figure out what stragety I had to use. So I destroyed the FRG and then all four incoming Corvettes. Then I thought that I'd only have to deal with the remaining starfighters that now had no Ship to return too. Suddenly I had another incoming wave of enemy fighters from hyperspace. It would have been cool to kill off the remaining fighters and the reward would be a completed mission. Destroyed Cap ship = no more fighters. :)

Usually, you see EH attacking Rebel outposts, and not the other way around. But still - why send two GUNs and three T/As against the Rebel strke force?
