Just wondering how my ship can travel 84 K in a little over a 18 min battle hmmmmmmmm  Top speed of ship is 34.5 knots

Careful, you are bringing math logic into this.

Time compression would be my guess though.

If the time in the game were the same as it is in the outside world then the 20-minute "battle" would be over before the sides even detected each other.

Time and distance are compressed to make an hours long battle into 20 min of fun.

 

edit: It is part of what makes the game lethal. Time and distance are compressed, but shell penetration was not compressed with them.

Warp speed and cloaking devices, this really is a space game.

It will be before too much longer... (April 1st.)
