I'm giving up on one of my big secrets here so please read and think about it
So, as advent illum spamer fan, i always luved to send them alone crushing fleets until the horrible marza came
At first i cryed because my little illums died so fast, but then i realised, GOD! advent has big shields, advent has a great mothership advent has guardians!
So the tip is ^^ either you have a mothership with the lvl 3 of shield regeneration, or mothership with lvl 2 regeneration and guardians, but you NEED antimater, you'll see how fun it is to see a TEC send his marza alone on illum spam and send his missile barage ... all you have to do is to use shield regeneration (lvl 3) 2 times on your illums while the missile barrage is in progress and you'll see ... god my illums survived and they took 0 damage on hull and have full shield! (need to improve those shield a bit so the mother is more effective)
Thats awsome and then the marza goes down on a focus fire cuz he came alone and died alone
Now Advent fellas! To your illum spam and go crush marzas!!!!!!
(edit : the key to good advent fleets is generaly that, a good use of the shields, vasari has hulls, armor, phase missiles, EGG 6 and many fucking anoying stuffs, TEC has hoshikos, armor, hull, and marza, dunov, kol, ADVENT has fucking good SHIELDING, use it damnit, advent has halcyon with the energy weapon boost, the rapture, radiance with laser (almost as good as a marza if you use a malice stacked with it, advent has guardians, repultion, advent has the subjugator check the ability of this one, makes the ship on witch its used impossible to disable ... advent has revelation ... don't even need a scoot with that crap, advent has destra ... that crap goes over 33 dps fully upgraded with a halcyon, advent has illums who has 3 beam lasers (goes over 28 dps with halcyon and a fucking nice range ... advent has the steal ship ability with rapture, advent has disciple with steal antimater and give it back to ships, advent has repultion ... advent has culture with 2 labs ... eco start means culture almost faster then trade, advent can build structures faster for higher cost, advent has a pirate bounty boost, advent has some fucking good abilitys guyz, use them! and stop crying over vas OP or TEC marza OP, advent is the best! RIP if you don't believe me cuz i'll kick your ass so hard you'll end up facing your own anus.)
