Fighters have unparalleled agility and speed. They have the weakest shields in the game, but you don't need shields if you don't get hit. In the hands of a skilled pilot, their precise laser cannons can equal the firepower of any other archetype. But fighters are not just barrel rolls and laser beams; they excel at pool management, turning the heat generated by their powerful engines into their best advantage.
