Hard question. I must admit, I lack the experience to really you whether faster LS would be very useful. I am very open for suggestions.I do like it...
This is quite a big change, players will have to get used to all the different tactics etc. I think that I would rather see new ships introduced, a faster attacking ship with a slightly lower attacking power and a much slower defensive ship (there is an idea up for this already i believe).
Not sure though... would like to see what other think.
I repeat that I do welcome complexity to the naval warfare. I prefer as a first step a panel where I can select the strategies.
