Capture, somethings off

Base captures in this game are expressed as a certain amount of time to capture. So why does the second ship joining in the zone not cut the remaining time in half? I've been in the zone for about 10 seconds, down to around 50 remaining, and a second ship joins but the time remaining only goes down to mid 30 second range.

Because a second allied ship in the cap reduces cap time by 33%, not 50%.  In Domination mode, two ships reduce capture time to 40 seconds instead of 60.  In Standard mode, two ships reduce capture time to 120 seconds instead of 180.  By the way, a third ship in the cap does nothing for capture time.

Never paid attention to the exact difference.  

Thanks.

This. It’s also why, if two ships are in cap and one keeps getting reset, it actually takes longer to cap than with one ship alone.

This.

If you’re a big fat spotted BB, and one of your DDs is capping, DON’T CAP. Stay outside and draw fire. Distract the Reds from thinking about what’s capping.
