Proposal: Port Authority

Timed out / quorumed 6 votes to 2. Enacted by Kevan.

Change:

If, when the Chart is updated, two or more Vessels would occupy the same square, and those Vessels did not do so at the time of the previous Chart update, the Chart is updated to show those Vessels occupying the same square and those Vessels each suffer 1 Damage.

To:

If, when the Chart is updated, two or more Vessels from different sides would occupy the same square which is not a port, and those Vessels did not do so at the time of the previous Chart update, the Chart is updated to show those Vessels occupying the same square and those Vessels each suffer 1 Damage.

Ports and same side fleets seem to be natural places to have multiple ships, and it doesn’t make that much sense for them to collide with each other on creation, otherwise all new ships created at the same time will take a point of damage.

for This should speed up the beginning of the game a bit.

against Then the Chart will get a big blob of Transports on each team’s port squares. I prefer the current trade-off of deployment speed vs starting health. (Also, I would lose the small advantage I had for being solo.)

for This does make more sense. I like the current timing dilemma, but it’s trivial to avoid through team discussion, and less of an issue once there are ships on the board and players have something else to do with their non-creating turns.

@Tyguy: blobs of transports on port squares are really easy to deal with. The other team can’t move them quickly, and they only have 2 armor.

against CoV as this has a timing problem - we don’t know whether it will enact before or after the Admiral processes the current Watch.
