This. I don't remember where I first heard it, but I've been supporting this idea as well.

It would prevent spawn camping while also preventing people from hiding behind their capship.

Not gonna claim I was the first to say it, but I've been endorsing something of this sort for... a while now.

Yes, a team can't camp in the safety of their capship turrets, while shooting any enemy that comes close with 5 railgun salvos.

I will exit every battle that is the only way to avoid being spawncamped with these changes iets already possible as a bomber to drop a hyperspace beacon on the enemy capital ships. This change only favours premade teams to farm pugplayers. Who will lose intrest in playing and will stop playing starfighter. Meaning longer q's for us all

Good. Maybe if people like you exit he battle, it will be backfilled by actual pilots and not capital ship huggers.

Very mature response starting personal attacks to people who raise a issue with a not well thought out change that will be gamebreacking.
Seeing that ik mostly in the top three of every match that i play no matter what ship i fly think i know what i am talking about.
With the minelayer i can drop a hyperspace beacon behind the enemy capital ship let a dronecarrier and a gunship spawn you be able to spawncamp a match and win without reality effort.so no piloting skills needed. This is already possible without the change. Because only the front turrets work on the republic capital ships work and you can behind the. Ships where the front turrets cant shoot at you.

Please i would like you to discuss this subject with facts and not personal attacks like so many of the forumtrolls.
