The only annoying thing about the Allegiance is it's pathfinding imo. I tend to not bring many just because of how slow they are and how much more versatile ISD IIs are, but that's kind of a preference thing. As a poor man's Praetor I think they fill their role pretty well.I wouldn't really relate the Allegiance to the Praetor. The Praetor is a tank. It's got slightly above average damage but it can take a beating. The Allegiance is the polar opposite. It's shields won't last long in a sustained firefight, but there's not many ships that aren't significantly larger that can take getting into a slugfest with it. It just has too much offensive power and will blast through the shields of opponents. Only in the face of sustained combat where they can't regen shields do they wither and die, and even then, they take quite some time due to how beefy their hull is even AFTER the shields are down. The key is to keep pesky bombers away from them to keep their shields up as long as possible.
