Lategame advent is all about the capital ships more so than the other races. They have good synergy with eachother and ressurect can be awesome if you screw up. A game I played that really dragged out (granted it was against the AI) I was fighting on two fronts and one side got completely destroyed. I lost 3 caps with level 5+. I was considering quitting at this point but my other fleet had a high level mothership, so I just bought 3 new caps and used ressurect on them. If I recall, it didnt even matter if they were the same type as the ones who died.People playing online will probably preach guardians. They can be borderline imbalanced with how they can keep a portion of the opposing fleet out of the fight.I try to mix it up in lategame. Simply spamming illuminators forever isnt gonna work in the long run.
I know, tried and failed, goes for destras too. I'm not sure if the gaurdian's push ability is imbalanced though, it takes up a ton of antimatter to use it right, which keeps it from using it's shield ability.
