The Athos medium destroyer is my favorite ship when it comes to looks and i rly want to use it more, but its just simply not powerful enough to be classified as a medium destroyer. Its weapons are too short ranged to deal with enemies from longer ranges, it has too little armor to be a brawler with even a corvete and it's speed doesnt quite compensate for the low armor value. I do have a decent brawler build with it that can fight with most smaller ships, but only at closer ranges.
So heres what i would suggest:
Armor: 30'000 -> 35'000
Movement speed: +10%
Repeater damage falloff: moderate -> none
(i was thinking about increasing the damage of repeaters but thats questionable since it in close range is quite decent
Ik many will disagree with me on this, but i dont see any reason other then esthetics to take the Athos over the Gora
You could potentialy nerf the Gora since its quite powerful but i think its good where it is.
Tell me what u think in the comments, and if it actually is balanced IYO then tell me how to master it, bcs i rly like the ship.
