Interesting idea ill have the group with play this way for a couple of games and see what they think.

I ready the links to what you put up but I do not see any clear answer, and in the gaming groups I play in if one cant show a published rule of this is how it is, then it does not count if there is a change from what the rule book says and a change from what Mongoose has as FAQ then it should be cor...

sounds like you were quite close right off the bat, if you could have stayed out of range of his smaller ships for a turn or two might have been better.
