Until AM stage, I think the Liir fare the worse by going all DN. Especially if they are facing ballistic armed fleets. Generally Liir need to use more CC abilities to keep their opponents off them and DN's aren't as effective for that as specialized cruisers with 2 DN's.

Bugger all didn't realize this was a Prime thread.

Well in my limited Vanillia experience... When the enemy gives mainly DNs I go mixed... when the enemy goes mixed I go DN. In my mind my Torpedo Boats tear up the big guys with concentrated fire while the DNs tear anything smaller than a DN. Hivers benefit the most from DN+CR in my opinion, and Humans should skip CR and focus on DN+DE.

Liir suffer when they go all DN, as concentrated fire will kill their eggshells.

Tarkas enjoy their better cruisers... don't take that from them. A heavier focus on CRs than DNs.

I was shocked to see people are still playing vanilla SotS1... saw a MP 6-players 1.2.2 game last week...

I think it's quite different from SotS+BoB+aMoC+ANY... for instance with ANY you get the Blazers packing Heavy Beams, which are VERY effective against the big targets that are DN's...
