I noticed the combat ship positioning seems to have changed since 1.8?
I used to have a strategy of upgrading obsolete small hull ships to use up logistics in my modern fleet.... the small hull ship will have high weapons and be classed as a 'capital' so my larger more powerful escort ships will protect them.
Suddenly after 1.8 the large escort ships hang back and all the small hulled capital ships get creamed!
Its an interesting re-balance but not mentioned in the change log for 1.8?
So there is really no point upgrading small hulls now since they are just cannon fodder?
Are we better of upgrading them to constructors instead now? what do you think?
