I think a great way to make this more interesting would be to add a very large thick asteroid ring around the ships, on top of adding a debris field where they fight.

We have also discussed the possibility of starting ships with just the core and forcing them to rebuild before fighting, and allocating a pile of resources in the center of the map for ships with factories to build fleets as they fight.

Yes, I have heard rumors. Those are all interesting ideas I would like to see. Although they present new balancing issues, they don't really treat the existing issues. Normally I'd like to see existing issues get fixed before new ones are presented.

Right, the goal isn't to make fleeing drone-spammers unusable. The goal is to make them fair.

... Make killing drones worth points?

And yes, remaining out of range indefinitely is certainly a pretty cheesy way to win. Perhaps even comparable to making a ship too large to avoid (see Snowcatchers). For proposed solutions: Make projectiles much faster relative to ship speed. Instead of outrunning projectiles, make ships dodge them. If you build a ship that's faster than its opponent and can also outrange it, it's obviously a superior design. I'd disagree with anything that would change this.

As for having ships spawning in as bare cores, that's a pretty good idea that would also show off the main attraction of this game that it's named off of. I think it's funny that the reconstruction rate is artificially slowed for tournament fights that are meant to show off the game. Though I understand the reasoning behind that... fleet 1 cores are OP.

Double post, but...

You have to remember that "Engines are OP" is only in the context of a tournament. In the regular game, you cannot win fights by running away- you need to actually kill things to get resources. Tournaments feel unbalanced because of their very basic and specific circumstances- a 1v1 fight between 2 ships of nearly equal P value, with an infinite void surrounding both and a time limit where you can win by having dealt more damage than received. A change that makes tournament fights "balanced" might very well unbalance the regular game.

Instead of making a change that applies to the entire game, perhaps only the tournaments themselves should be changed.
