He had full life with no favors and I only had my front launch bays gone with nearly the same hp (slightly higher). These ships are worthless. They do garbage damage, are garbage slow and don't have a single redeeming quality. Our Battle Cruisers out shoot them and the is NEVER any reason to take them over smaller ships. They serve zero purpose in this game in the Chaos line up. Just take them out so new players don't have to suffer through leveling the up only to find out the futility of these monuments to failure.
Chaos Battleships are surport warships, as they are in the fluff, that rely heavily on the Chaos Cruiser superiority to bring thier firepower to bare.
In the game you shouldn't be getting them into one-on-one fights, the Despoiler specifically has very nice carrier capacity and frontal Lance firepower, so keep it close to your cruisers so it can provide heavy burst that may otherwise be lacking in the fleet.
If you're Turing an burning with a Chaos Heavy Cruiser you will lose, he is simply too much faster and more mobile and packs very similar firepower. The other way you can use a BB is as a tank, upgarding it's Sheilds and equipping it with sheild related skills and using it to draw fire from the cruisers.
I stress again: these Arn't IN BBs which are the mainstay of the fleet, Chaos operate based on thier cruiser strength.
