What was supposed to be a counter against the hounds tooth is a complete pile of rubbish. I'm sorry I wasted the effort to max this ship out, I'd advise everyone to avoid this ship till it is re-worked completely. The shield disruptor does not work as it's written. "Dispel all buffs on target enemy AND inflict shield disruption for 2 turns." What in reality happens is that the taunt is dispelled and the shield disruption gets resisted. Especially against the houndstooth I'd give the shield disruption a 1 in 8 chance of actually working.... again 7 stars with all the abilities maxed out.
It's hit points are so atrocious combined with the fact that every attack makes it taunt, you'll have one chance to use this in battle, and then it's destroyed. If it gets it's ability blocked you've wasted a slot in the ship battle. It would be better if the taunt and shield disruption weren't tied together, so you could actually hide it behind a real tank like the GR Y-wing or give it hit points of a real tank.
Unfortunately, the houndstooth is still way to dominate in the fleet arena. If you choose to run all light-side ships you've basically relegated yourself to a sub standard team. Maybe with the negotiator things improve, but unless you're in a very successful guild this probably isn't in your grasp for a long time.
While I'm on the subject where's Luke's X wing? That ship is featured in how many movies?
Why is the Raddus tied to the houndstooth? Get rid of the importance of this ship.
