How about enforcing some kind of fleet composition standard like in the tabletop?
I know some whiny ass little stain is going to bitch about it limiting options, but the irony is that by forcing some mild limitations you can in essence, force people to come up with creative workarounds.
My suggestion is a Crusier Limit that is in part defined by your flagship.
Kind of like how we currently have Escort Limits.
I'd suggest 3 crusiers plus your flagship.
A BC would raise this by +1, a GC +2, and a BB +3
@Jellyfoosh I'm glad and I do understand that. I do want to say though, I was able to play that sort of battle in the launch version of the game by using the save editor to increase my Leadership cap. While no longer possible in the current version, and I assume they'd want to add in additional balancing elements, it does make it very clear that it isn't a deeply complicated problem.
Thank you though for informing the devs. This is a general feature that I think just about everyone who sees this game as something more than their latest round of Twitch-fodder either wants, or at least can understand the desire for.
Again, thank you.
