I can understand this in CnH, but A fight broke out in Ker'rat yesterday and it went on for a long time. Both sides forgot about the Ker'rat objective and it turned out to be a space battle at the spawn point and I had an awesome time.
This really depends on which ship I'm flying.
In the Krizonar or Ship thingy, this is fun, long battles in ker'rat are awesome.
In the D'lovas... god spare me, there's always that one Defiant who won't get off my tail. He can't kill me, of course, but I can't outrun him, so I'm stuck pressing balance shields for the next 15 minutes hoping he gets the message.
