I have made attempts to beat them but i think there ships are a little overpowered.
Use fewer beams/missiles, and more cruiser lasers and ion cannons.
The empire likes shields, but not armour. get some fighters in close (within the shields) to do some direct damage.
Interesting, I thought the Empire was the weakest of the Races as I easy ripped through them compared to the others - I obviously got my weapon combos right for the Empire and struggled with the others
Thanks for the tips.
try to make a really fast rebel bomber, and create a horde of that…
