What about Extends? I remember darkly there was once an event with rules to "reduce healing" and TSI had the genius idea to put Extends on their escorts. So?
i dont think banning extends is a good idea personally. since its all escorts and the most a full fed team can get is an extend 1 per escort, which then could be countered by the multivectos shockwave/bops shockwave. healing is already going to be severly limited so i see no need to really limit even further. if this is a deal breaker for you then i'm not sorry.
and the bops can take extend 2 if wanted, while the feds have no way of taking it. (pure teams mind you)
if everyone wants there to be mixed teams i'll allow it. and as for all cloaked teams... well you got sensor scan and 45 mins to find each other. if this really becomes an issue then i'll know next time limit it to 4 cloaking ships per team. but thats a whole event away.
