Since boarding is getting reworked in the new patch, I'd also love to see scuttle getting reworked. I've lost a fair share of battles as orks just because I can't boost away from enemy ship self-destruction since I had to spend my red button to board it in the first place. Not to mention possibly getting critted on my engines on the way there.
I think that there should be some delay before you can skulk a ship. Right now it feels very discouraging to hulk a ship as orks, since opponent mashes skuttle button right away, as soon as I kill that last crewmember and I cant do anything about it despite seeing it comming. And dodging it can be impossible, since you have to spend a red button to board it in the first place. Not to mention that you are supposed to be ramming ships with it at all times.
In order to hulk a ship in reasonable time you have to use sideboarding, but this puts you rather close. If you try to stay back while hulking a ship, then
1). you risk letting your opponent re-populate hulk with his own boarding and slip away
2). you might not have enough juice to hulk a ship and it slips away
3). take too much time to hulk him.
Since boarding is getting reworked, I'd like ship self-destruct to get reworked too. Successfully scuttling a ship should be a rare and rewarding thing to pull off. I propose at least a 10-15 seconds delay before scuttle becomes available.
