Howdy! First of all I just want to say that I think you have done a great job with the game so far! Loving the new strategic map and everything we can do.

Now, I have noticed most of the issues that other players have, but I just wanted to voice my thoughts on assigning your Flagship and switching out your ships for others in a campaign...

As it stands, I need to scuttle my ships and build new ones at full price in order to upgrade/increase my fleets. This is kinda annoying in the sense that we are scuttling experienced ships for rookie ones in a time of war... I believe that we should have the option to put any ship we don't want to scuttle in a reserve pool that any of our fleets can choose from. Obviously we wouldn't get any money back, but we wouldn't lose say a lvl 4 cruiser just to get a lvl 1 cruiser that has a different armament. If you really want, you could even put in a upkeep cost to keep a ship in reserve

This also comes back to my flagship... In the campaign, by the time we can build cruisers, our flagship should be around lvl 3 or 4. Now I cannot change my flagship say for a dictator unless I scuttle almost my entire fleet, then I'd have to buy it all back, or I'd have to switch my flagship to a light cruiser in order to scuttle my experienced and valuable ship just to get a ship with a different armament (but better than a Luna...imo) and no experience... either way this is a huge investment, one that takes a huge amount of turns to amass. Maybe in this case we can swap a ship of the same class for another one at a discount? For example, change the Lunar ship for a Dictator for the cost difference between them (or say for a flat 100 for cruisers, 60 for LCs and 30 for escorts)? Or send the Lunar to the reserve pool and get the Dictator without having to scuttle my light cruiser/s and escorts...

In the end, what I'd like to see is a more efficient way to change flagships/ships in a fleet without our only option being to scuttle everything. Adding in a reserve pool or maybe the option to swap ships at a smaller cost would be welcome.

Cheers!
