As some of you may know, I sometimes make simple MS Paint diagrams to teach mechanics and tactics. With the recent addition of fleet formations I have more fodder for my educational ‘art’ skills.
Here’s a look at the ‘basic’ fleet formations and the utility they may offer.
Here’s an explanation of how the relative fleet warp mobility works.
And here’s a description of what I expect to see alliances set up in their systems soon for home defense fleets (can also be pretty easily created anywhere if you just have about 30 seconds of setup time).
It’s still early in the theorycrafting days for this so I fully expect to see clever and unexpected tactics emerge yet for me to make new ms paint drawings of.
