Whether or not QS via whatever hull is forbidden is a host's decision.Mika wrote: a basic question (seriously)
is sdsf queue playing forbidden?
not always nice but imo the torper races are almost forced to play it (sometimes). Most torpers have a economy advantage and that means more bases --> pbps.
Historically, QS relies on the other players NOT doing it.
QS relies on other players fighting while the QS player sits and waits.
It is effectively using a mechanical limitation of the game to screw the
other active players. That is the reason the Phost authors created an
alternate systems that reward active players and penalizes inactives.
No race needs to build a stack of sdsfs as a means of denying
another player building ships nor as a PBP battery.
IF all the players in the game QS the shiplimit gets hit around T20
and more than half the ships are junk sdsfs.
To make a point, the group I gamed with during the 90s as a group
did not employ this tactic and we always hit the limit by turn 20-25
and none of us built junk.
The solution is one of economics.
Maximize the economy and there is no need for QS.
