    Advice please

    Right now I'm using Alfred +6 with Elsa +4, FD +5 with Jackie +1, Geoffrey with Krill +6 soon +7, Carter +3 with Kit +2, and FS with Mileena +2. I'm trying to decide where to go from here. I have one stratus chip so I think that is a good addition as I have no strikers. Geoffrey seems like the commander to dump for now as Carter keeps my other commanders firing. Any ideas? Do I go for Ursa(ranger chips will be a problem) next or save up for a red commander? FD also seems disposable as anyone with a destroyer has Jackie so destroyers just trade water bullets. Thanks in advance.

    Second is a question... how many credits are you looking at per month?

    But if you don't block the enemy FD, you will see his true power.

    Generally I would focus on long-term goods. That means in most cases Legendary Equipment, Galactonites, TS-Modules, multi-purpose Commanders. Especially Chroma Prisms R-6 come in frequently for low money and still give very decent boost - wait for events granting good duals ffrom CPs! TS-3 Module Chips come from daily activity and TS-4 Chips are around 250-300 Credits each if you strictly constrain yourself to good offers like some packs.

    Using two protectors in a Raksha heavy environment is risky as many players use Kit again. The shields of Geoffrey lost a lot of their relevance with new Reshape so maybe best would be to add some offensive power. I cannot tell if Ursa would make you happy. With Reshape and Star Lord in many battles I encounter Ursa he cannot turn battles any more from near loss to a sharp win with 3-4 block counters. I would stick to FD at the moment - he is still the best answer to opposing FDs and Joyas and players subsequently replace him so destroyerless fleets are more frequent again and then FD is a safe damage dealer who is hard to kill.

    There are few commanders that promise long-term use: Ursa because of Primus (together with Cryptor), Louise probly also because of Primus and a useful special. Azrael with his awesome special which makes many wormholes easy...

    If your credits are enough I'd wait next red commander and if he is not a counter to Caroline I'd buy her. Caroline + your alfred is a really strong combination.

    More things that would help if we knew: do you fire first on your server? What's your arena position? Holding a specific position in arena? How does your allies/friends spend?.....

    For new Bowman, saved as much as credit as you can and wait for a red commander. If you are patient enough, you can go for Caroline in 2 - 3 months and get her for a decent price. Also, commanders are not the only way to be strong, a red commander without dual R6, Legendary equipment or, TS4 modul will be weaker than a S3 or S4 with good stuff.

    I agree with all what has been said...

    focuss on long term investments if you spend just month card or less on this game per month. Arena credits and FaceBook/Forum rewards are nice but you cannot rely only on them if you want to be in "the middle of the pack".

    For tier 1 commander (red + 2 stars) indeed you need to wait at least 2-3months and rely on lot of luck to get them below or well below 60k. Caroline is nice, but TAP will nerf each temporary advantage, so do not chase each commander .. think 2x before you make a move ..

    looking at your fleet, my guess .. you do not invest lot of $$$ into this Casino game as in contrary some do (e.g. Anakin and his SS trip this month)

    TS4 special offers /in VIP packs or events might be best bet,
    Legendary equipment, Tier 1 can be for free ... (tier 2, I dont think you cant afford, me neither ...)
    R6 dual gala is paramount
    Save the asteroids for MC upgrade and invest only in these commanders which you plan to use ~6months and above (FS is a safe investment always)

    The best long term commander (Kril) you have ... so make him +7 ...

    Indeed listen to Nachteule Lousie/Kryptor and Azrael are the choices ... Ursa lost his edge, I still use him as I cannot afford more

    My strategy was always save 60k to 80k and then get a good commander (back in time when I still used Month cards, no longer the case) ... and always ask on forum for a piece of advice like you did now...

    good luck!

    Thx guys! Right now I can easily hold #2 on my server. There are no big spenders, so it's a matter of who invests in what. I have invested from the start in good galactonite, so I'm fine there and upgrade singes to duals as I can. I guess the consensus is to save for a red commander and get rid of one protector for sure (I may dump both eventually).

    Yes, I do not intend to invest a lot. I occasionally buy the 9.99 packages that give choice of dual R6, but otherwise I mostly save from the free credits I get. I got lucky in the first month by getting both alfred and geoffrey, so I've been riding them so far, but now I'm at the point I need more firepower. I would guess my monthly savings at a minimum of 12k if I dont get suckered into spending some on stuff I can get for free with more patience
