When firing off missiles at long range, especially against frigates, it’s very common for multiple cruisers (even when not set to cooperative) to all target one frigate, have 3 waves of missiles in space, and have the first take the frigate out. End result: 1/3rd efficiency on the missiles. The rest of the missiles start the bolshoi ballet on ice, which is pretty, but it means that cruisers are overkilling, and unlike beam weapons, there’s a huge penalty.
- In-flight retargeting of missiles to other nearby targets, perhaps with the cruiser missile target laser only?
- Better non-cooperative missile target selection. Get your own frigate!
