Re: Improve cov ops and scanners
I understand the cheating concern but why would it be profitable to cheat with a research you could only get much later in the round.
When ship steal was pretty obtainable I could see the incentive. But this requires you to complete two sections of the tech tree, and do the required research to actually get it. Or you could make it part of war mode to make it more impractical.
I agree the game seems to have a huge multi problem though. Watching a colleague with fleets from [ALLIANCE REDACTED] escorting a single fleet from [ALLIANCE REDACTED] you just despair, because not much is done about it,
