Mycon vs Syreen is HARDLY an even fight.  Not impossible, but hardly even either.


Favoring who? Who'd win? (in your opinion.) I've always had a problem with the combo because the plasmoids are too slow to catch a syreen, but the syreen is too slow to get around them, plus if she gets close enough to draw out crew or shoot they mycon generally has enough time to regenerate.

The Syreen has a strong edge, if the captain has figured out how to get the Mycon into immediate range. This is a bit of a trick, but there are ways. Note that the Mycon are actually at a disadvantage if they slingshot for extra speed, since this means the syreen can loop around and get close from a direction it is unsafe for the mycon to retaliate in.
