# 1 Run & Catch vs. Hide & Ambush.

The onyl way PvP will ever be balanced in any way in this game is if non-cloaking ships always go faster than cloaking ones.

The two main factors in determining how well you can pick your battles and stay alive are stealth and speed.

A fast ship can outrun what it can't outfight, and catch what it can kill.

A stealthy ship can hide from what it can't outfight, and ambush what it can kill.

Right now one faction has BOTH advantages though. This is fundamentally unfair.

One faction should be the Hide and Ambush faction, one faction should the Run & Catch faction, that way nobody has a double advantage, instead both factions have a method to engage and avoid.
