this is in the campaign mode by the way
heavy cannons dont seem very good as a general note and the crew wears down too fast to make putting out the fires everywhere on the ship an option. more, smaller ships seem better than the huge max crew size dreadnaught.
You appear to be winning pretty solidly. :D
Yeah, at the moment, small ships are kind of overpowered. We've been doing multiplayer (you should join!) and the ideal fleet seems to be composed of a swarm of tiny ships. This will hopefully get addressed in the next update.
Maybe increasing splash damage of rockets or something? Because at the moment they hardly ever hit. That's fine if they really are devastating when they do. :)
I've done some tests, and if you add rockets to a gatling gun ship, it works pretty well. Even better if you have telescopes.

I want to see your designs. I have testing and been using an upgraded wanton and a incomprehensible ship as a flagship. Hasn't been working against my best defense. definitely creating a ton of lag. Going to try it against my best fleet with dreadnoughts.
