Yes, we were to start closer together, but I was too lazy to change the map. Sorry Swor. However, I could have simply run the MC90 backwards until we were at what the actual battle did start at, and had the exact same situation.

Gravwells are still very usefull. I think you're forgetting their main feature: interdicting fleets. That is very usefull. Also, it prevents enemies from jumping out, so if they have a slower (or just slightly faster) ship, you'll be able to kill it.

Superships are still usefull as weapons to make the enemy run. They can also help in large fleet engagements between more equal forces, where the enemy decides to fight (or do as much damage as possible). But, you have to admit, it's absolutely stupid for an enemy to engage a lone supership when they have nothing that can kill it. The supership will escape with full health (due to HW limitations), and the enemy will be destroyed. Whereas if they retreat and return later, there may be something they can destroy.

The funny part is... we've recreated the obsolescence of the battleships, the same way it occured after WWII. ;)

Well I'd harldy consider an SSD or SOV THAT useless [img]tongue.gif[/img] . They could still function as fighter repair or(as has already been mentioned) fire support platforms (thinking in temrs of battleships and carriers here ;) ).

Now, if i could lay my hands on a ssd or two. I might be more willing to commit em to fights. Bulwarks will have to do i suppose. poo

theres 'interested' and then theres 'listens while counting bumps on the wall'

For me, I just like talking about shit. She can fake paying attention all she wants...beats talking to myself...

Besides i do it right back to her....when she talks to me about one of her hobbies....now, what were they again????
