This is my favorite admirals orders. Deploying pilots at -1 to capitals (or admirals at -2) is pretty useful. But the ability to make opponent lose force for each battle ground occupied by your commander or general is very powerful. This is also my favorite admirals orders because its two abilities go together very well. It will make it easier to control space which will in turn help you to cause my damage by taking control of the ground.
Use this with any objective that starts with a system. The control that system and the sites you deploy to that system.
Strategies and game play:
I think this admirals orders works best with endor operations. Start the game with a system that will give you a force drain of two and a system that has many useful locations (including the the generic sites). There are lots of commanders and generals for the dark side so you can take your pick on which way you want to go and how you want to use them.
Ways to counteract it:
Put down another admirals orders
Can not be canceled
Pilots deploy -1 to capitals and admirals -2
Make opponents lose 1 force for each site occupied by your general or commander
Artwork and aesthetics:
8.5 to 10. has no weaknesses, but takes some time and can be difficult to take advantage of its main bonus.
