The current (extensive) thread about missiles seems to be coming up with
some interesting conclusions, which bear out what I've heard people say
about FT missiles before; those who use a large play area and move at
velocities find missiles next to useless, while those who move slower in
smaller areas find them lethal. It is a case of the strength and
of the system being entirely relative to how it is used and what it is
against. I think the discussions are showing that missiles are not too
unbalanced PER SE, but I do think they need some tweaks for FTIII (not
what yet).
