  • Ships is the worst game mode ever. I hate it. Fleet nodes for shard farming are horrid, arena is boring, arena is pointless if you don't have the one singular key meta ship which is currently HMF. Hound's Tooth doesn't matter if you don't have HMF. Get the Falcon or get beaten.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that GK's capital ship will usher in a Republic fleet meta, and all the people with maxed out Plo Koons and Clone Sergeants can rejoice. Both of them.

    Endurance/GR has been meta multiple times, and GR ships have given strong options for your fleet split in TW for a very long time. It's not an unreasonable investment.

    According to swgoh.gg, there are fifty thousand clone sergeants at G10 or above, and about fifteen thousand Plo Koons at the same.
    Still not a he.

    Basically, get Houndstooth or don't bother with Fleet. That's my experience. Fleet is very much a dead game mode for me personally. I struggle to juggle the farming requirements of characters and never find time for fleet. Houndstooth is on a great node with Jango Fett, my problem is I already have 5 maxed Bounty Hunters so never needed to farm Jango so doesn't fit with my plans, the more Revans, Padmes etc come the game the further and further away fleet slips.

    I chased a fleet meta once (Bugs) and by the time I got there the meta was over and Houndstooth came in and ruined it for me, given this chase had also set me back in my character farms for pretty much no return I gave up on fleet entirely. If you can't get top 50 it's pointless and I can no longer get into the top 50 because it's all Houndstooth.

    That's ships. A bitter view maybe but hey, we all have our wounds with this game.

    That's true. However, once Kenobi's Negotiator is released, Galactic Republic will have some love in the meta. So at least it won't be all bloody HMF and HTs at the top.

    I attack:
    Slightly stronger team - I lose
    Even strength team - I lose
    Weaker team - I LOSE!

    So the meta might just shift a bit to favor Galactic Republic ships as well. Good ones include Anakin's ETA-2, Ahsoka's starfighter, Plo Koon's, Clone Sergeant's ARC-170 and Umbaran Starfighter. All these great but waiting for a good capital ship to lead them to victory.

    Other than what is mentioned, people have mentioned the good early/late game ships for Rebels/Empire etc.
