More ships, New Environments
With the new server map, new battlegrounds and exotic locations have been designed (and yes, more asteroid fields!). Besides the eye-candy, it is the new unique environments that infer new kinds of strategies in combat, for both big and small ships.
Asteroid fields and areas with a lot of celestial objects can be a fast/small ship's best friend, avoiding fire of the longer range, slower Cruisers and a way to lose scanner lock. Players that are good with this technique can hold their own against Capital Ships.
