Maybe it is not felt as priority but... the point values for skirmish mode should be considered because in some case they reflect no more the correct relative strenght... i know tournaments are not so common today but the issue has to be spoken off imho

Something that occurred to me the other night:

We all know the XWAU ISD has a lot more hardpoints than the original TG model, but something that hasn't been talked about as far as I've seen is the size difference. The TG ISD is 2Km long, the XWAU one 1.6Km. That means the XWAU upgrade ISD is 20% smaller, or to put it another way with the same number of hardpoints it's guns are 25% more densely packed.

That means vs other cap ships more guns will come into range of a target sooner whilst vs fighters it means AA fire is going to be considerably thicker.
Got rid of the sig, it was upsetting me.
