Generally, you never want vader to get below 1/2 health before dropping a t-5 or twirling. And always try to "pre trip" sonics with storms before vader gets within range of them. Basically, storms tank sonics and vader tanks the rest. Most important of all, don't be in a hurry to deploy vader. If your storms can clear enough buildings to trip sonic turrets, that's when you drop vader.
cool as now have Vader buff and he is lvl 6 currently, also have Astromech. My current layout (buffs help) is (I'm HQ9)
4 x MHCs
8 x Heavies
21 x Stormies
1 x Shock
1 x Repair
1 x EATAT
Appears effective but have put off upgrading my HC , SSC and factories due to current death star frags for all objectives. So been hitting the crates hard at the mo and after the event look at how I can still grind on while some key buildings are out of action while upgrading.
