    I suspect one of our governing questions should be "was this enough change from baseline that a change-averse Admiralty deemed it worthy of fleetwide adoption?"

    Also, I suspect Tonnant/Bucentaure...

    I'm also debating whether we shouldn't add another tier at the bottom to split the Second Rates, Tier 5 being late British 98's and Tier 6 being the Spanish 94's and pre-upgrade British 90's.

    True, amigo. The word of the day for Ares Spanish is "Full Metal MUNCHKIN." Personally, here's how I'd stack-and-rack the Three-Pluses:

    If my understanding is right, the mobility impairment came about with the overloading on the four-deck mod.

    Threedecker ST should be a peer to Santa Ana (same gundeck layout and similar size, just a little older) and at most a little less than Orient, while Orient and Hibernia should be near-peer....

    I'd like to see some playtest results with these two candidates, which I'm in no position to perform myself ATM. :(

    As a general rule, I'd say with their 24# main battery Spanish 74's should be treated more as "really tough 64's." (As an aside, there were a very few 32# 64's, which I suggest the reverse, treating...

    Good point, we really need to treat 3-decker and 4-decker as two separate ships, just like a razee before vs after. F-Minus might be good for maneuvering.

    My first thought is buff the British and...

    I think we had several Playtest Candidates but no firm "consensus answer." I dunno where that Veer 4 came from, IIRC three-deckers are usually Veer 3 and ST had a maneuverability problem of legendary...
