Dunccan, whilst you have a semi valid point I must point out that a flaw to your
argument is bloodlust - a larger player who only ever kills equal sized opponents and
ships rarely you are correct has an unfair advantage given the current policy.
However if a bigger individual has high bloodlust they dont have to ship to quickly
lose their ship rides.
I personally whilst conceeding the general point Animists are making, have grave doubts as to
motives as so often in the past Animists controlling things like brews has clearly
been an attempt by certain individuals to wield power over others they could not gain by
any other means.
In addition as checking defences no longer tells how many ship rides as person
has, there is no way to even fathom if any favouritism or dubious practices are occuring
to enable certain individuals to gain a wurtfoil advantage.
