They were all cramped. It's one huge base-to-base connected mass.
I don't know about you, but if I have ships ranging from Mass 8 DDs to 
Mass 100 superdreddies on the board, I want some slight variation
in model size.

formation to close firing range, you're essentially fighting a melee in 
cm scale.

Good thing we didn't have any PT ships trying to get within 6cm...
