Couple of Questions

Recommended Posts

I'm Interested in potentially picking up this campaign but have a couple of questions:

  1. How many missions are included?
  2. Does this require advanced and experienced knowledge (creating waypoints, AAR...) or is this good for a novice pilot?

 

Any feedback is appreciated.

Also do I have to have CA to play. The post by ED said something about being a sniper in a truck.

 

"The A-10C: Stone Shield campaign offers you a variety of challenging missions in which you must not only act as a tank killer, but also operate as a sniper making one shot and one kill engagements."

 

I'm quite sure they mean that there are missions (or maybe just one) where you do not just engage any enemy unit but are required to kill a specific target, and that target only. So, not sniping as in the coward's choice of class in any FPS but as in doing a precision strike with your A-10.

 

I agree with Mikesinn that more info about the campaign would be nice, but I'm sure that other players will have provided that info in a week or so.

I've played first two missions yesterday - nice and not very complex, looks to me after the first two missions as a perfect campaign to start one's adventure with A-10C. With EN voiceovers, first one is a training mission that can be skipped (starting in air), second starts on runway with one easy tasking. Looks promising.

I also got several questions:

 

- How many missions?

- Do you get briefings with the campaign?

- Who's the creator? I guess, it's neither Baltic_Dragon (since he is active in this thread) nor Ranger79...

- Why was the campaign not mentioned before? Feel kind of surprised of the release.

- Is it worth 10 Bucks?

I've put a little time into this and finished the first four missions, as Baltic_Dragon said above, so far it seems like a good starter campaign for newer A-10 pilots.

Here are some thoughts:

 

+ Missions so far seem like they each offer an interesting mix of action

+ Dialogue and voice work seem pretty good so far

+ You have the option to play with/without labels

+ No bugs yet

 

- Briefing write ups are very short and lack a lot of context/atmosphere/flavour text

- Missions are on the short side as far as A-10 campaign missions go

- No radio channels in briefings, seems like you just leave radios set to whatever channels you start on

- 3 out of 4 starts have been hot with engines on, one was airborne

 

If I get a chance to put more time in I'll add some more thoughts. For now I'll say that for $10 it's a new A-10 campaign and that's enough for me. That being said it doesn't hold a candle to Baltic_Dragon or Ranger79's work.

Maybe a community campaign or so. Lack of information also in the briefing of the missions. Done the first few missions and for me it´s far away from the quality of Operation Fury or Baltic Dr. campaigns... A little campaign for a few bucks... Compared to the other campaigns I mentioned above, which you can get for the same price, it doesn´t stand in relation... But it´s ok and I´m happy with each new campaign. So take it. 10$ isn´t the world..

 

Edit: 12 missions..first one you can skip (isn´t really a mission...)

No advanced knowledge needed, startup procedure and weapons only.

It seems to be not very complicated canpaign, but sometimes you have to act in time for mission success. And may be good for novice pilot.

No CA needed.

Labels allowed.

And yes, 12 missions.

Up until Mission 6: it's a perfect first campaing for new players' familiarisation. Mostly simple: take off (hot started on runway), fly there, hit a couple of things then return and land. No complex story with extensive - almost real life - (in Piercing Fury: text AND PowerPoint!! :thumbup:) briefing material, no "real time" turns of plot during the missions. For those who've flown Enemy Within, let alone Piercing Fury, it's a bit less complex, thus a bit less exciting. My 2 cents at least, no offense meant.
