The Ebon Hawk was a really interesting ship to design because we don’t have an Old Republic fleet for it to nest into, and there are a limited number of scenes in the original games where it was directly involved in combat. From the outset, we designed this ship to be a viable plug-and-play option with more focus on strong reinforcement utility (vs. front line play).
Compared to character combat - which has a tremendous breadth of status effects - ships lacks some of that diversity today, so we're interested in continuing to expand this part of combat whenever we can. Early on in the design process we aligned around granting immunity to allies as the core of the new status effect, and this became central to how we built up what would eventually become Chaff.
We think the Ebon Hawk pairs particularly well with the Galactic Republic, Geonosians, and Bounty Hunter, however the ability to dispel all enemy buffs on reinforcement should help many different fleet configurations fare better against some of the more challenging fleets you may face.
Here are some of the lineups we played with:
