  1. tl;dr: Is it more lame to hide in a battle in order to avoid enemy screening fleets, or is it more lame to use screening fleets to avoid having a 25v25 battle? I keep going back to the idea that port battles should be something you can join from the comfort of your own nation's capital. And when you're done, you are back in the capital. Basically they are a special 25v25 fight that, once scheduled, cannot be avoided (assuming enough interested people are online). You don't even have to sail there. Screening fleets are lame because half of their intent is to grab people to prevent them from entering the port battle. Removing the possibility of screening does not eliminate much fun from the game. Screening can be interesting but it's mostly just a delaying tactic. But screeners messing up port battles DOES eliminate a lot of fun from the game. Plus, it's hard to really stop people from hiding in battles to avoid enemies. Pirates can do an outlaw battle but anyone could just attack an NPC fleet and sail away from them. (Or a "friendly" enemy, alt or otherwise.) So given that screening fleets basically suck to begin with, is it worth the effort to try and make them functional? Do we really want to prevent 25v25 battles from occurring? Should we not, instead, actually facilitate 25v25 even if it means screening as a concept goes away?
