I noticed you only seem to use cloaking to avoid blasts and pump only 1 energy into it. And interesting strategy as it comes back faster.

On boss battles two and three, you absolutely want to use it at only level 1 so it comes back sooner. The cooldown time from cloak-off to cloak-on is almost exactly equal to the cooldown time of the boss's special attacks. So you want your cloak off ASAP when the special attack passes. If you put 2+ levels into your cloak, the extra time delays your cooldown and you'll be stuck eating the next special attack.

Other than the boss, higher levels of cloaking are fine to use and worth the investment. At the full 15 seconds, you basically get a free weapon recharge while the opponent sits idle. That recharge isn't so important on the boss since your boarders not guns should be doing most of the work.
