So, I have gone arround many a forum and have seen many different oppinions on the usage od the Battle Barge, and taking as many as possible, or going Cruiser Heavy, in lieu of the larger vessels.
So far I have been using 1 BB 3-4 cruisers and 3 squadrons of escorts for 1500pts...
but what are the general thoughts on the usage, and effectiveness of these units or their combinations?
Please help this aspiring admiral out.
I've found that the best fleets are either all SC, or BB and escorts (with no SC at all).
This is because SC are just not ships of the line, so you either need so many that you can afford to lose a ton of them, or just leave them at home.
The BB may be massively overpriced (and under sheilded), but it is a tough nut to crack, especially at lower point values. Because of it's size, people tend to target the BB over your escorts, leaving them to do some real damage. Your BB will spend most of the game braced.
