well, really?Because it apparently has shields?
I know why they do it.
Does it balance them in a cookie cutter arcade shooter? Yes.
Does it make in-universe sense? No.
Are there other options for balance? Yes.
Are those options better? Depends what one wants.
me too, but I preferred the TIE Interceptor actually. Firepower, Speed, Agility, but fragile. Somewhat cheap pointwise compared to the T/D and T/A. And a real beauty.I loved the TIE Avenger.
