Total Points: 399
Looks pretty good, but I’m not sold on Overload Pulse. That upgrade was never powerful, even when old-school Avenger was around to abuse it. Now, without Avenger, and with Evade able to force rerolls of your blue criticals at any range, I just don’t see it working really ever. Plus, to gain any benefit from it at all, you need to follow up with additional attacks after the Overload Pulse attack, so it really only does anything when the planets all align perfectly. 8 points is a lot for such an inconsistent upgrade.
Thanks for the Feedback :) well i was thinking about Screed but i like Konstantine better...
Looks a good fleet and the missions link in well. It would be a decent Screed fleet as it is with the guaranteed crit generation. Staying with Konstantine I think the Raiders are taking a risk trying to get the blue crits to activate the HIEs. Screed can go without but Veteran Gunners or Weapon Battery Teams would be nice if you stick with Konstantine.
Speaking of HIEs you have three and they are great but once the shields are stripped they do nothing so replace one Raider-II for a Raider-I with ACM & OE to do some serious hull damage and save you a few points for WBTs on the remaining Raider-II. Iden is good on a Raider-I I prefer Montferrat on Raider-IIs. a cheaper alternative is Titus on a Raider-II an the 1 point Vader officer on the Raider-I, it could be fun for more speed annoyance and a second reroll to get the HIE to work.
