For the rest I love this guide and I would agree that the transformer is the best allround ship. Great read.

Actually, I rank them something like this:

1) Androsynth
2) Druuge
3) Slylandro
4) Melnorme
5) Mmrnmhrm
Sorry, I guess projected my own view too much onto that. You wrote "most well-rounded" not all-round.

Still I reckon the transformer is the best all-round ship. Only the avatar can easily beat the transformer. All the other match-ups are challenging.
I rate the slylandro and melnorme highly also. The androsynth is the only ship in the original heirarchy line-up that I would consider good. All three the transformer will beat.

The suppox also has alot of potential IMO. I think in skilled hands the blade can be top 5.

Druuge vs. Mmrnmhrm: This is a hard match-up to give advice for because it's so free form. The key here is that Mmrnmhrm can't turn very quickly as a Y-Wing. This leads to it following a rather predictable flight path which allows for easy hits.
Am I the only one who's conservative with the throttle on the transformer? I do not think the druudge is a good counter.

How do you adjust your druudge shots for a transformer flying half speed and ready to dodge with a quick tap on the arrow?

Those long distance shots are already hard and the transformer can keep a distance while cruising leisurely. If that mmrmmr player is as good at judging shots as the druudge player is a good aim, great acceleration will make up for the slow turn rate.

The flight path is only easy to predict when the transformer doesn't let go of the throttle. I prefer to fly in wide circles with the nose aimed somewhere between the centre of the circle and the velocity vector and then gently accelerate with a short bursts.

For the rest I love this guide and I would agree that the transformer is the best allround ship. Great read.
