it CANNOT be like XvT, it cannot depend on the persons skill and connection like that game did, but rather the fights should depend on your pilots skill. You type your coarse, auto-pilot, get attacked. type /attack /evade /rudder /torpedoe or whatever commands they make to attack and evade. If it were like XvT then the MMORPG part is lost to the 3D flight sim and thus the experts in XvT and XWA would have a huge advantage.
Sometimes they really are out to get you
