4. This is the only correct one (first half), and it is a reasonable thing for ANY PLAYER TO DO. Playing a ship gives you experience in that ship. The more you play a ship, the better at using it you should become. The difference between a decent player, and a great player is part positioning, part reaction, and part intimate knowledge of exactly what the ship is capable of doing (maneuvering, shell travel/arcs, armor scheme, etc...) Additionally, playing against other ships, you learn to deal with them, what their arcs, armor, and ability to position is. Second half is still wrong.
