For example, when comparing a Sloop and a Man o' War between the two systems:
- - Sloop: 13(2) toughness, 3 wounds in 50F; 13(2) toughness, 1 wound in PotSM.
- Man o' War: 24(4) toughness, 3 wounds in 50F; 26(4) toughness, 5 wounds in PotSM.
Obviously, a small ship in PotSM is at a much greater disadvantage when fighting a large ship than it is in 50F. My guess is, this is intentional (maybe so we could use the cool Wizkids ship masts as wound markers? )? For people who have played ship combat in both systems, is there a difference in "feel"? Maybe the 50F combat feels more pulpy? Or maybe the goal in PotSM was to make the big ships more "invincible" than the small ones?
