Thrawn's Revenge is a large-scale mod for Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. It includes the events of the Galactic Civil War after Palpatine's death at Endor, up until the signing of the Pellaeon-Gavrisom treaty. If you own the Steam version of EaW, you will have to complete extra steps to run the mod after installation. Please see the manual for these steps.

June 7th 2012, marks the 6 year anniversary of the creation of Thrawn's Revenge. Six years ago Corey had a dream: become an astronaut. Instead, he decided to start a mod.

...The Stars Align...
Those of you who played 1.0 may remember that the faction currently known as the Imperial Warlords was originally split into two groups, these being the Pentastar Alignment and the rest of the Warlords. In later versions, the two were recombined. However in 2.0 we're going to be reversing this change and going a bit further with it in the other direction. The Pentastar Alignment will now be a fully independent and playable faction, including skirmish mode and multiple Galactic Conquest scenarios.

Anniversary Update: Praetor II Anniversary Update: Fel Ascent

Their unit list will be a bit of a mixed bag. They will have their signature frigate, the Enforcer-class picket ship, as well as the Vindicator and Immobilizer-418, however they will also have many Imperial ships and vehicles dating back to the Old Republic, such as the Venator, AT-PT, IFT-X and Acclamator. The Pentastar Alignment also cononically included the territory of the Banking Clan, as well as a droid manufacturing company. Because of this, they will also have access to some Banking Clan units, such as the Hailfire Droid and the Munificent.

Also, because their territory includes one of the more important regions of Imperial space, Oversector Outer, they will include some of the former Empire's most powerful ships. A mainstay of the Pentastar fleet across all eras will be the Praetor II Battlecruiser, a ship with 3 times the size and firepower of a typical Star Destroyer pictured above on the left.

...Black Fleet Crisis...
One of the new Galactic Conquest scenarios in 2.0 is based on the Black Fleet Crisis, a conflict between the New Republic and the Duskhan League. This GC features 12 planets, as well as both the New Republic and the Yevetha as playable factions. Click the play button below to watch the preview video for this GC.

...Moving Forward...

As we move into the next year, we've got some big things planned. The most relevant of which is the impending release of Imperial Civil War 2.0. We're approaching beta phase, and as such have begun to pick beta testers. If you wish to participate in the beta, please post here. We currently have 5 set, with plans to add another 10-20 over the coming weeks until the beta phase begins, so there's still lots of time to sign up.

I just gotta say 1 thing.... good job.... I found out about this mod a few days ago and downloaded+installed on desura. Works great. 6 years, I had this game for 2. Lol. But don't let anyone keep you down, this game is great. Btw, I liked the 1.2 or whatever the current patch is... I like the mon calimari capitals. MC80's for sure, being fat with more weapons was cool!

Great job! So are you guys including the Pentastar Alignment in Skirmish or not? Because earlier I thought you guys said you weren't going to implement them in Skirmish. Though if you could, that would be awesome!

Pentastar Alignment will be playable in skirmish. I said in the video that the Yevetha will not be playable in skirmish, which may be what you're thinking of.

Ok, thanks. But correct me if I'm wrong, isn't it hardcoded into the game that there are only three available factions available in Skirmish? If that is the case, wouldn't you have to drop one of the other factions?

Though if it isn't hardcoded, then good :D
