Just started a couple weeks ago, so I may be missing something... but are ships driving straight into each other at the start of the fight the new AFK? I see a lot in co-op and even regular battles (mind, I'm only in tier 3 and tier 4) just ramming each other... Is there a point to this, other than getting a quick XP kill then being able to watch netflix while the fight ends without suffering some TK/pink name penalty?
In other words, even though I'm new and probably missing something, why else are DDs and CLs just ramming each other? I understand as we learn how to manage our boats but shouldn't we avoid collisions?
Thanks in advance for answers... just curious if I'm seeing a lot of new navigators like myself or if the "ram ship, die, then enjoy free AFK without penalties" is some kind of credit/xp gain mode.
