For late game fleet engagements (mixed fleets), I was wondering if it is actually worthwhile to heavily micro your fleet.
I generally found it most useful just to fleet focus fire on the defensive support cruisers then work from there, using my combined fleet to focus fire whatever target I feel is the priority after that (Usually a cap ship, unless it's a crazy AI going rambo with a titan)
I tried to do use the counter web thing and micro my bombers to the heavy C's, rush my LF past the lines to engage the LRF's, hold my flaks center fleet to take down fighters/whatever wanders into range, then have my caps take down the def support cruisers. The whole nine yards.
But from what I can gather-it seems to be six of one-half a dozen of the other. Admittedly, every match up is a bit different, and my data is limited, but late game at least it seems to boil down to how you manage/time your cap abilities more then any over riding strategy after the Hok's/Guardians/Overseers are nuked. (Well, beyond keeping your own def sup cruisers from getting themselves murdered).
