Question: since these are islands, what are the chances of adding naval vessels for placement in the water? Sure, they would be harder to hit for most current weapons, if at all, but they could be handicapped by doubling/tripling their fuel costs and denying them defence shields, etc. Maybe they could be a bot-only option so they don’t get abused. But think of all the potential new weapons! Airburst concussion missiles, ASROC based torpedo delivery systems, and more.
Yes, this idea is hardly faithful to the original, and any implementation would be a lng ways off, but just curious if the team would even consider it.
