It has just occurred to me this will only serve to ensure that more rockets are coined by the CCers.

You don't have to run in the gauntlet to kill the fleet even if it doesn't move out.
Even if you prevent your base fleet to run outside your gauntlet to engage the attacker it'll be easy to pulled to the back of the base and killed by a prep fleet.
After all, with the current poor AI, the base fleet will most likely stand still when in range and will be easy target for mortars.
Even the best sfb3/assault missile dreads fleet defending a base can be easy killed by a FF fleet with RA3 & mortars (one of the most common base attack fleet) if it just stands still because of the poor AI.

What is going to create too much bookkeeping is the proposed alliance change. That is going to be a problem.
A base guard fleet does NOT even come close to fulfilling the same function. Guard fleets can be killed by players OTHER THAN the base hitter. If you want to hit a base, get your allies to clear the guard fleets - so the 'Guard' function doesn't really do much.
The HUGE BENEFIT to this change is that now, when my base is attacked, I actually get to participate instead of just watching helplessly. This makes base hitting much of of a game, instead of just a spectator event.
This is a great change -- depending on the details of how it's finally implemented.

I really do not understand why you have to watch helplessly when your base is attacked. When someone attacks your base you can click on any defense platform and use the turret to attack incoming ship. So you can switch between platforms and use them to help defend your base. You obviously do not know much about the game.

Well I know I'll be letting sw's patrol mine with SFB3 ^^
And question: Are we going to be able to choose where our fleet is deployed in our base when they attack it?
