Battle Reviews

Pretty fun battle, I enjoyed flying it. Not too difficult on Easy.

A little more understated than a typical Frodo battle, but still a good one. There's a bit of a dip in the middle there, but the last mission is definitely a highlight. Great time!

A very enjoyable series of missions - a good story-line, and a variety of objectives. The waiting time, as other reviews have mentioned, is a little annoying, but really was felt in one mission really. Recommended.

This was my first XvT battle at all. Was mostly quick and easy. The story didn't really grip me.

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.

Flew this on easy for the RTF 2021 competition. First mission is a breeze. The rest were easy to mop up enemies, but alas a LOT of waiting of vessels to capture stuff and return home :/

Really good missions and it almost seemed like Frodo had a serious battle put together until the final mission's shenanigans. Still really enjoyable and lots of variation. Definitely gets 4 stars from me, and he continues to make fun missions.

An all around fun battle! There are some pacing issues that keep me from giving it a 5, as there are times where you're just waiting for the transports to do their thing. Once in a while to make the player wait is fine, but back to back missions where I can 0 throttle and goof off because an ATR takes years to make a round trip is a bit much.

The last mission was beautifully chaotic. Bravo!

I played on Easy. These missions are very simple but they can take a long time to complete. I spent a lot of time waiting for transports to fly back to my ISD. Other than that, the missions were relatively varied and the plot seemed okay. The objectives for the final mission were weird, it's not entirely clear that you have to kill the Rebel Transport before it docks with the TIE.

I hope to find the time to refly this battle and give it more justice. Perhaps we will see it in the TCIB. Excellent battle though I would like to see some mor effort in naming craft. Calling the 'escort' craft ... Escort just throws me out of the immersion somewhat. Solid battle and may edit my review in the future once I had more time with it.

Another example of Frodo's legendary skills when it came to mission creation. This one has a gripping plotline with a twist in the end, totally unexpected for me. The missions have the usual high level of technical proficiency accustomed and the action was excellent. One remarkable battle not to be missed.

Another good battle by Frodo with a lot of action, a good story and well-designed missions. It wasn't fun trying to disable some of those Corellian transports in Mission 2 till I realised I didn't need them all so I just blew them up and disabled the normal transports. I got scared by Dan's experience so I was ready to disable the friendly capital ship should it try to hyper out but the mission worked ok for me. Some cool missions in this battle, definitely worth playing!

Everyone seems to like this battle and I'm no different, it's serious, well crafted and has an interesting storyline. Some of the missions involved are difficult to get right and can be quite long; but that said there's enough going on to make it a great battle. A nice twist at the end makes it different, I like it!

I liked this battle very much I tell you. Although lacking the humour I usually demand from a battle to actually like me it was so well constructed and the plot was so solid that it deserves a shiny 4. The difficulty is at high standards (always talking about "Hard" of course) and in that mission against the A-Wings troop becomes a bloody madness, to the point I was so used to press the "Fly Again" button that when I finally managed to complete it... I pressed it again! Anyway it adds fun to the battle as a whole. And then comes the excellent documents zipped within the battle file, and they're so interesting and nicely written, involving an entire investigation within the heart of EH, that they compelled me to upgrade the score to a 5. Excellent work, Frodo!!

This battle ran pretty good for the most part though the 2nd and 3rd missions gave me a bit of difficulty but the storyline was good (as usual), and motivated me to find out what was going on.

Well...all in all I enjoyed playing the battle, but mission 2 was hell for me. I had disabled a few craft too far away from the VSD and waited no less than half an hour for the CUVs to get there and board them...for my surprise, after the boarding, before the CUVs could make it back to the VSD and complete the mission, the VSD enters hyperspace....I lost a few hours to mission 2, and that's the only reason I give it a 3. Besides that mission the batle deserves a 5, and I enjoyed mission 3 very much!!

Loved this one with the leak being one of our own. Very good plot and mission outline. One of the best. Loved flying this one.

All around not a bad battle. Waiting extended periods of time for the CUVs to do their thing brought the score down.

Nice big battle that's not too tough. Although, these kind of mission where you always end up at the end just waiting for a shuttle to fly to a capital ship, seem to make the game drag on a bit longer than I would like.

A good battle & plot involving a info leak in the EH. This battle features Krayt squadron vs pirates & rebels (some even with Imp craft);p. While the battle features a good mix of combat, my only issue is that the T/Pr was actualy a T/A (though I know why Fro' did that so people who had issues with patches could fly the battle);p.

I only wish that the plotlines written to accompany this battle were still available, because I think the combination of the two would have made this battle a 5. Very solid mission design and an anomalous plot twist are a dead giveaway that this is a Frodo battle- two very good calling cards to have. I also like how Frodo uses the actual order of battle for the squadrons he includes in his battles, this one being no exception. Definitely in the upper half of Frodo's work.

Very Good battle, but kinda long at times!

Great job Frodo!

Very good battle Frodo! I agree this is your best battle to date. Keep it up!

A little Competition sure brings the best out of people by far COL Frodo best battle to date.

Battle Bug Reports

LCM Charlie X


Mission 1 - Cargo Ferry #3 never enters Hyperspace. Continues to fly in a large circle at high speed and the objective never completes.

GN Dunta Polo


Mission 2: CUVs fly very slowly to board their targets, causing a 10+ minute delay after the enemy craft are disabled. Changing their first order to a standard flight waypoint would fix this.
