It's without question that stealing pods would benefit certain strats, I'm not sure how you can call that naivety aside from trying to discredit those disagreeing with you.

I also think you are, either consciously or subconsciously, misrepresenting the argument for adding the third pod; it's not that most people would resort to cheating (though some certainly would and be at a bigger advantage than usual because of it), it's that without access to a third pod, strategies to land reliably would be severely limited.

Take Terran for example: it has no partner for either of its attack classes, and both have a ship that prefires it (one with barely any losses, or even stealing at a slight value gain depending on Ter composition). Without Cat De finding pods, the best it could do is team its De with Zik Co.

All that being said, I'm not sure why we went with R70s stats and made them worse. I'd have much preferred your flawed stats than play De forts with everyone.
