I’m afraid that Harrow or any other title/upgrade would’t help Victory to become great again. And that is because only large ships (i.e. Victory’s main competitor Imperial class) has access to Strategic Adviser. Let’s assume that we speek about Imperial 2 and recently buffed by capacitors Victory 2. For reasonable price of 124 points for Imperial 2 you gain a ship that is twice a Victory in activation manner while still capable of dealing 1 on 1 with Victory 2. One may say that differ in points is quite big and it is 35 points at least, and that is true. But this difference will decrease as we add more and more upgrades to Victory, and it’s performance still be paled to that of Imperial 2 in maneurability, durability or firepower (sure, we can put full load of Capacitors, Gunnery team, Leading shots, Minister Tua + ECM/RBD, some turbolaser on it, but that make Victory price in points comparable to Imperial still not giving the decisive edge over naked Imperial 2 that will have activation advantage due to Strategic Advisor. And increase in maneuvrability will do little help there as ISD can simply wait for Victory’s move, neglecting it’s improved maneuvrability) .
But if we remove Strategic Advisor from equation, then we will have a bit different picture. Whithout this additional activation upgraded Victory has nearly equal chances to win or loose 1 on 1 battle and that is what expected from ships of close to the same price. And even unupgraded Victory will still has better chances against ISD because it doesn’t have it’s activations advantage any more (not to say the one with improoved speed).
Ability to have Strategic Advisor on big ship is what makes Victory a senseless waste of points, because you don’t have any tools to deal with this kind of advantage (taking second non flotilia ship neglect all point savings Victory provides while taking additional flotilia may not be an option due to flotilia limit and still eats liont share of points saved by choosing Victory). And I move further and say that this is not solely Victory problem (it’s just the most obvious) but all medium class ships problem, because they all have worse points/efficiency problems against large ships with Strategic Advisor.
Only change to Strategic Advisor card, say by making it one use only, will make Victory (and other medium ships) great again, but not another round of new upgrades.
