Actually I don't have a problem with the mechanics of the ramming rules,
just the idea of a crew of relatively normal people deciding on a death
glory charge - which with some players happens with monotonous
if they're losing... From that viewpoint I do have a hassle, because it
seems really unrealistic from the viewpoint of what a normal commander
would do in a battle.

Of course the simple solution is to get some other players, but they're
and few between here.

Ignoring rules is fairly easy with those listed in More Thrust, but if
they're in Full Thrust you'd really have to both agree before the game,
my opinion.
