to all you annoying vasari fanboys/girls out there:
just chill out already. lol advent can kill you OMG NERF THE HELLZ OUT OF THEM! always trying to get everything balanced around vasari. well guess what your lrf sucks...its a cheap tier 1 pos. ofc it gets beat by illum. maybe if you'd just build some carriers (hey! guess what! they did drop the build rate penatly on carriers in 1.17/1.03!).
same thing with repulse, its about the only useful support cruiser ability advent have against vasari (shield bubble gets screwed by phase missiles) funny that the devs even made illums have less range than repulsion (hint hint).
who's sticking up for the tec anyway?
the problem with balance is not that advent can beat vasari it is that they just clean house against every race because a well designed advent fleet is invincible. Argue if you want but lrfs do not counter support cruisers and they are the only thing that can reach gardians. Vasari subverters do not reach gardians through repulse. with the power of flack and repulse illums can be protected from all SHips that were designed to counter them. Fighters, scouts, HCs, Flack, all are beaten by repulse beause they are pushed out of range. And since illums beat all other lrfs so well guardians+Illums+Flack=Invincible fleet. I dont only play Vasari i play all races. I have only played advent 10 out of 200+ games but i dislike playing them greatly. I find them too easy to win with that is because they have a fleet composition that is impossible to beat.
Maybe you should play online against people who play every game abusing this stratagy, or maybe you should play something other than advent because your arguments are without evidence, you sound like an illum spammer who is mad because people are trying to balance the game.
