This is literally the third time I've posted a topic like this. I don't know what's wrong with my brain that I can put together good synergies for TW, TB, and arena but by God I can't figure how to build a team that gets below 150 in ships to save my life.
Here's my ships list:
I use Thrawn as my capital and usually start with the TIE advanced and a TIE fighter along with Biggs. I call Phantom for an early numbers advantage (because it allows me to call reinforcements again on my next turn). My other reinforcements are usually Ghost, Ahsoka, and Plo. 90% of the time my TIE advanced or TIE figther gets killed in the first salvo. Sometimes I start instead with the Umbaran fighter and a TIE fighter; sometimes I start with the Hound's Tooth out and call on Biggs later. Either way, I'm pretty easily slaughtered and stay in the 150-250 range without much movement.
One thing I don't understand is why some people's Biggs seems invincible while mine frequently gets killed in just a few shots. I've even checked to verify and my power is often greater than theirs. I can't see any reason why this happens, so I assume it has to do with who I've got him paired with?
I lose a lot to people running Ackbar lead, which makes no sense. Thrawn is far stronger, isn't he? I feel like I have a decent set of ships but I clearly don't know how to arrange them or use them.
The last time I posted this, all the advice was, "you haven't unlocked all the good ships, your roster stinks!" But nowadays I'm mostly fighting people using the same ships I am (more or less) which is what makes this so frustrating. Although I do see a lot of people call Slave I, who comes in with taunt and retribution - I don't have Slave I unlocked yet. I'm working on it, and wonder if that would make a world of difference for me?
Any pleasantly-given advice will be welcomed. I openly admit that I am somehow blocked on putting together a strong combination of ships. I may also be terrible at USING them, so if there's a particular order or particular abilities I ought to be aware of using, I'm open to that as well!
Thanks for your help, maybe this time it'll stick? LOL.
