what are the point of battleships today?
by the looks of it they are mostly used for long range fleet action.

for close range the commandships and hacs do the same hob with about same dmg and sometimes better dmg then battleships

battleships today are to slow, to crappy dmg compared to commandships.

add slightly more speed in general to BS, not agility except for the biggest bricks.
and lower agility for the speed demon BS's
give drone ships the old more then 5 drones for more dmg
hybrids needs fixing, projectiles also as they are not on par with the rest.

soon™ ? 4years later?

I must admit that with the tier 2 BCs capable of doing similar dps for a fraction of the price and T3 ships able to have EHP bigger than multiple battleships they don't look good. But battleships still have the strength of being able to take a beating while delivering lots of dps. If used correctly battleships are still very competitive for when you get your enemy engaged in a static slugfest...

commandships and hacs are tech 2 ships.

The hull of a battleship is a hundred mil tops, and can be fully insured. If a half a billion ship is close to the same dps.... How is that odd?

If you are fighting wallet warriors and want to beat them at their own game just train for carriers and use those as the new battleship. Or better yet supercarrier.
