On my first game, I have a level 33 fringe ship that's loaded with 4 types of fighters. I find it very difficult to determine the worth of my level 33 raider 1 vs my level 33 interceptors IV vs my legendary level 33 fighters V.
Obviously I can't look in game to see which minion type is better than the next, and I don't feel like spending the time testing them all (especially when I have a required goal to activate every single gate in a large universe that's 2 levels above me).
Is there some general math/guidelines I can use to determine which ship might be better? Like does an elite actually modify ship stats or does rarity not matter? How much health does a level 33 bomber have compared to the cumulative of 4 level 33 raiders? Stuff like that...
