Battle Reviews

This was a...strange series of missions. The storyline, well it was there, but was...strange. Certainly one to do, and easy to complete, But also worth exploring on higher difficulty levels I think. Intriguing, yes, odd yes, strange - 100%. Did I enjoy, actually, yes!

Terribly constructed and full of difficulty level bugs that have apparently defeated like 3 different TCT passes. What on earth has gone on here? The usual generic features of an Angel battle on top of the overplayed plague ship gambit. Redeemed only in speed of completion

Ultra fast battle. I do not necessarily see the point but hey, it will give you credit fast.

Ultra fast battle. I do not necessarily see the point but hey, it will give you credit fast.

a very fast and easy battle, i liked the story about the infection and the virus. want to see more story driven gameplay. no bugs or glitches except unlimited waves does not work and will prevent the battle from starting correctly. i played this on easy

Very fast and straight forward missions, they were fun and not overly difficult

I flew this as part of Raise the Flag competition 2021. Overall, the battle seemed straightforward with no major hang-ups. There is not much to say about it. It was fun but the battle did not contain any elements that makes it stand out from nearly every other battle you have ever flown.

The story behind this is actually really cool and very much gave off Frodo vibes. I had to double check that he didn't make the mission. Either way, this was a very enjoyable battle with good missions.

Incredibly boring fights, the plot is boring, but I did get to protect a vaccine and that felt good. Not really much else to say about this one, the only real difficulty was in the final mission, just stay awake taking out the platform or the T/As will sneak up on you.

Very quick and easy to complete. The plot is about a virus on a platform and ships and has you destroying fighters and eventually the platform. It's very quick to complete by anybodies standards!

Extremely simple battle, though the story needs some work as it feels like there should have been plot developed during a mission or it needed one more mission in the middle to make it clear the unknown item was a disease. Though I suppose it's in the name of this mission. Overall the mission was extremely easy to complete as your wingman are on point and do all the shooting.

A incredibly simplistic battle, but also very very quick if you're looking for RtF or FCHG points. At no point are you ever actually under any threat whatsoever and mission 3 nearly completes itself. Would skip this unless in need of a quick filler.

Quick and simple. Hyper in, inspect a few things, blow a few things up, make a vaccine for a super....err..virus? Maybe the vaccine was the friends we made along the way.

I played on Easy. These were EXTREMELY quick missions, even by my standards. Nothing stands out about these missions, they all center around a Platform and you kill a bunch of starfighters. The plot seems okay enough, at least.

Looks like someone forgot to do their homework. This one feels like back in the times of Primary School, when you had homework to do and for whatever reason you didn't do it until the very last night. So then, you rush it through, throw a few things together and voila, 'homework' done. But on closer inspection every essay question is one sentence long

Simple plotline and briefings in at least working condition on this battle. The missions are very much the same over and over, fly a T/A and dogfight around, inspect some craft and kill'em all. Simple yet can't say it was not entertaining. There are better things to play out there, but this isn't terrible, either.

Medium battle,not so happy with this one.There are also maybe some wrong orders somewhere.And the names "Target",ummm

Good Battle, despite for the fact that on mission 4 the SD never appears on hard!, also, on mission 2, the platform only launches two flight groups of fighters, so the goals say you have not killed all of them, however, if you kill the platform, then it says you killed ALL the fighters... I think this is a bug and it should be looked into.

Battle story-line was fairly good I guess, I didn't exactly follow it too closely but at least the missions connected with each other. My problem was that you could only fly it on Medium difficulty setting because of the bug mentioned by most everyone. Angel - this isn't me crying cause it's too hard... it's me saying that it is a bug and needs to be fixed.

I thought all missions had to be played 'Training' single play mod and no unlimited waves! There is an error in mission 2 on easy - T/F [Target 9] only arrives after T/F [Target 5] has been destroyed, but [Target 5] only set to arrives on Medium skill level.

This battle wasn't bad, but it wasn't the best...these infection battles seem a bit popular these days. I believe however that Angel has improved her skills alot since her previous battles.

I think that there is a mistake, because on EASY in 2nd mission only 50% of enemy fighters arrive. i waited over 10 mins to see some more - but nothing happened. so mission failed, because not all fighters apeared :(

I discovered that if you fly MP and craft waves are set to "unlimited", then not all craft arrive. Make sure that you are set to "Default". This occurrs because one of the parameters is that "entire flight must arrive" before some enemy flights will arrive. On unlimited, that can't happen.

There shouldn't be errors, it has been flown by myself a number of times and tested by the TCS and corrected by a TCT. If fighters do not appear it might be because you destroyed something early, or late. Or maybe you just can't finish the mission on Hard, Medium or easy and you're having a cry! Unless... when the TCT fixed the battle something went wrong, but i doubt that. This battle is a good, but difficult one.

It is all right. Nice plot. Best thing about it in my mind was the battle between my old squad (Fury) and my current squad (Nemesis). Anyhow, still a nice little brawl.

Story Line
Platform Cerberus went into emergency shutdown two days ago. We have lost contact with the Platform 
since then. We know that a cargo freighter is to dock with the platform to give supplies after receiving
a message nine hours ago. The platform may be overrun by hostile beings. If the platform is overrun, it 
is critical that the freighter does not reach the platform as it may get captured and be used as a 

The platform hold 30 crewmembers and 6 staff. This makes 30 fighters on board, and 1 shuttle. As far as
we know the shuttle is still on board. The Emperors Hammer owns the platform 

Before the platform went into shutdown, Intel picked up a message.
This is the message;
" 16 March, S.P.T 0600, 2105 G.C Capt. Jon More 
It's horrible, unbelievable. I've never seen anything like this before. It came from one of our cargo 
tanks we got from a CD company. Serves us right for cheap weapons We have locked ourselves in the 
command center. They are everywhere! Only three of us remain. Everyone else is dead! Please Help us! We 
cannot survive any longer Oh no! Ahhh! They are in! HELP! Ahhh! No, No, Noooo! 
Transmission ended suddenly. It seems that there are hostilities onboard.

You are a new member of the TIE Corps, and lucky you gets to go straight into a scary situation. We will 
send two other agents to assist you. TIE corps Pilots Lt. George Done and Lt. Cmdr Mary Turk. They will 
be your wingmen. They are both great pilots and excellent TIE Corps Pilots.
You are to redirect the freighter heading for the Platform Cerberus. If the freighter does not obey our 
orders to return home it is to be destroyed. We also need to know what is on the Platform. You are also 
to inspect the platform.

After the inspection of Platform Cerberus, it was found to be carrying B2YA. The Emperor's Hammer is 
unsure of who or what B2YA is. After that last mission, we don't think they know how to fly. Intel is 
running checks on B2YA now. 
On this mission we are sending out an assault transport to board the platform, hostiles unknown as of 
yet. The transport is loaded with 10 Intelligence Division Agents, each highly trained in Terrorism 
takeovers. The EH wants this matter resolved. 

Platform still holds 30 fighters. The platform has not yet released fighters, or the shuttle. Platform 
is carrying unknown B2YA.

B2YA is not an organization. B2YA is still unknown to us, but we believe it may be an alien or chemical 
out break. Knowing it came from a Cargo Tank for weapons we assume it is a chemical weapon, but we are 
still unsure. More investigation is being done.

You, Lt. George Done and Lt. Cmdr. Mary Turk will escort the Assault Transport and wait for it to 
inspect the interior of the platform. We hope it will be as easy as the last mission.

The ID Strike team failed. The B2YA attacked the team and infested the transport. The brave pilot of 
the Assault Transport self-destructed the transport before it could get back to the Cruiser. 
Unfortunately, Lt. George Done was also killed when a Flight of Fighters attack him. 
We know now that B2YA is a chemical virus, and after contacting a few sources we came up with a cure. 
Although we are not sure if it will work, or who made it, we are sending a transport filled with the 
vaccine U2t to be pumped into the platform.

Platform Cerberus holds 18 fighters, 1 shuttle and the B2YA. 
The U2t is made from brain cancer cells, toxic nerve gas, liquid nitrogen, and helium. Tested on some 
B2YA samples given to us by our sources.

B2YA was found to be a chemical virus that infects the brain and mutating the victim. The victim dies, 
and then arises in a bloody state. With bloody running from the eyes, mouth and nose. Also giving the 
victim 10 times for power and logic than an average human, making them an ultimate killing machine and 
excellent fighter pilots. 
The Cure we made was created by examining a sample from a source that had a lucky break from this 
virus. The cure works on the sample, but we are not sure if it works on the B2YA human mutant. 

Escort the Transport and make sure it completes the injection of the vaccination. Fend off any 
fighters. Lt. Cmdr Mary Turk and Lt. Cmdr. Jole Oster will assist you. 

The U2t Vaccine was unsuccessful. The platform still contains the B2YA virus...
WARNING! The Transport has been contaminated. The B2YA is spreading. Reinforcements have been called. 
You and the surviving TIE Corps Pilots are to leave the ship! The ship will self-destruct in 2 minutes. 
Wait for Reinforcements, and then blow up the platform.
