Game Usage

  • Air Marauder is slower than the pair of Fury and Hades and usually falls behind if travel in a group together. This makes it require some babysitting to ensure enemy ASF and ground anti-air units don't pick it off the trail of the air army. This also makes the Marauder unable to retreat in most situations, having to commit to do damage before going down.
  • Air Marauder is quite expensive and if scouted and countered, can go down very quickly to ASFs. Thus, there should be enough info to make a decision to build them.
  • Air Marauder performs worse than Hades on frigates and highly clumped armies. However, it is superior vs almost every other situations and should be the go-to choice if air-to-ground harass is required.
