Sorry but i didnt understand very well the description of the Eclipse faction... do we have to chose between shield or lasers?Well, here is a shot from the game, where you can see passive abilities of each faction:
Vanguard is the best choice if you love ramming your enemies - they have very good armored ships and behave good in close range combat. So it's for more agressive playstyle.
Deprived ships are cheap, lightweight and have a lot of missile(rocket) ships - they are mostly designed for long-range and mid-range combat, as I think. Not very good in ramming. So it's not for a very agressive playstyle.
Eclipse faction loves eneregy shields and energy weapon - lasers. They can play the way you want, but consider that first you need to destroy shields, if you choose lasers - then they will destroy armor very fast.
Above you can see my personal thoughts. In general, every faction can perform any playstyle - just fit them right for this.
