Sure anything is possible - you can bog the probes down in a Grav Well - or warp plasma

But on a normal basis - this stratagey is risky in a slow moving ship - and there are 5 players in the match.

Why would 1 person have to take the risk of letting a probe through so they can work the entire side? Does not make sense. There is no reason 1 player should have to work 1 whole side with 4 on the other.
