[Tips for Pulling This Off]

- Move your Raven in to fire and immediately back out to safety, Ravens are weak.- Target a unit in the middle of the enemy's units so as to get the most out of the AE.- You can use a point defense drone to help your Raven release the Hunter Seeker without getting killed. However, make sure you have enough energy.
 
     

Good vs. These Races / Strategies:

 

Bad vs. These Races / Strategies:

This is great vs. low HP clumped units, specifically ranged units as they clump the most. This is also good against units standing around clumped that do not notice your Raven.   This is not as effective against lone units. Also, if units have a lot of anti-air or air-to-air units it is more difficult to get the Raven into position to fire before it is destroyed.
     

What to do in Success:

 

What to do in Failure:

- Release another Hunter Seeker into the group if their army size suggests it.- Push forward with your army.- Think about dropping some auto-turrets in their worker line.   - Try it again.- Pull back to safety if outnumbered.
