I’d like to see a feature added to GSB to automatically re-center the opposing force. Why? Because space is big. If I (the fleet commander) had intelligence on an enemy fleet, I wouldn’t jump my fleet in at some obscure angle to hinder the battle for my side. I’d jump right where I wanted to be. So, when some people put their fleet in the corner, nullify it by re-centering. Or, better yet, allow me to move their force to where I want them to be but not change their relative positions to each other. I need to jump my fleet in at whatever angle suits me best. As commander, I would not have sent my fleet into a bad position. So lets simulate that space is big and the enemy can’t hide in a corner.
Not only that, the game (it would be a game changer) to allow the challenger to re-center or move the opponent to any side of the map. Then he has to protect all sides. But I realize that may be asking too much. In a real sense, the size of the maps don’t make much sense either. Since as commander, I may decide to jump into the sector far away from the enemy, or behind him or on top of him.
But thinking that the intent is that we had to travel to the battle space, then maybe coming in on one side makes sense. But still I would not come in at some oblique angle.
