I think the link below covers most the bases(then i posted my version under it)....I'm not sure why this thread was closed, as I don't feel like they answered or full addressed the question.....just quoted some arbitrary ish and then acted like they are right. Anyways, I think Ice is right.....arbitrary rules should be looked at, not pushed under the rug because that's how it's always been...which isn't the case.
good thread that should still be open
my version of the above
If anyone could give a real answer to the questions asked, please feel free to drop them here. They stopped counting probes as ACS when they were added by people that have no real part in the battle and no chance of adding real fleet because they were doing so way back in the day to make solo hits into ACS 10's because of added probe, nothing to do with being involved in the hit or having the ability to add real fleet to the fight like the above 2 battles.
