1. save fives Special for a big hit when lots of ships have Target Lock
2. Negotiator AoE lands target lock on lots of ships (certain amount of RNG is involved, ideally you want the non-Vulture droid ships to get target lock, and fives aoe to crit)

3. kill the real vulture droid ASAP (not the summoned ones), this is so that you can ignore other vultures, once a lot of vultures are on the field, it can get confusing to identify the real one, match doesnt end until all non-summoned ships are dead.

4. once the real vulture droid is dead, focus and kill 1 ship at a time, as long as your fleets are at comparable gear levels, you should be able to win before malevolence gets its ultimate off.
