As we add in more systems like officers, crafting, trade/research and aging ships, retreating will prevent a lot of financial and time losses.

PerfectDeath wrote:Silligoose, we will also implement two "HP pools" systems integrity (SI) and hull integrity (HI).
Systems Integrity will be the value ships have right now; however, when it runs out the ship dies leaving a hulk behind. No huge explosion.
Hull Integrity will be considerably higher (like x10) than SI, as HI gets lower (below 50%) there will be a chance that the ship will explode when hit that increases as the ship's HI gets lower.
The SI will be repairable in space, but HI is repairable from a shipyard. So it is a way to create risk for a player deploying a fleet for a prolonged period of time.

We appreciate all the feedback from this thread *link*.
In stead of working on the things that you guys gave feedback on, we're going to throw a curve ball and introduce a tempered down version of a system we did away with a long time ago. For the lulz, mostly, but isn't it cool!
Really guys, the #1 issue was persistency, #2 issue was UI, #3 issue was economics. Did Volatility even get mentioned in that thread?
Nick wrote:The dev blog is just explaining how volatility will work, not that it is being implemented right now, because game designers design gameplay, they cannot fix persistency so we work in parallel, wile the engineers are working on persistency we are working on designing features to be added in later to the To-Do list.
