Don't give us that "we only did it because they did it" crap, you would've brought them no matter what we used. AND you would've used them in EXACTLY the same way if you had been defending.
As for us "avoiding combat", you were upwind for a good portion of the battle and I'm not sure if you've ever tried to charge the enemy upwind in lineships but it is near impossible. You on the other hand had the wind for a good portion of the battle but chose not to charge us, instead opting to sit next to your Mortar Brigs while they fired at the lineships.
So don't start complaining that you were somehow cheated or that we behaved dishonourably.
