Last second switches can easily be missed, I don't gaf if people do it to try and upper hand  their game, but I'd like to see it when they do so.that during the loading.screen, when I'm getting myself into "The Zone" I know what I'm up against.
It.kinda breaks The Zone, when you go in thinking one.thing.and go.against the another thing..

And.....



Make any last second changes weaken any changed ship or gun on your ship. 20% reduction in performance for changes in the last second.

Then you have people changing ships at 11 seconds. Problem not solved.

Make it so if ships change when the timer is below 60secs, the time auto resets to 60secs and everyone is unreadyed..?

I am for the ship change highlight though, would be useful - even with out any complicated reset rules..

Maybe not un-readied but timer reset would be good, especially useful to those who change ship late just because they're short on time and still learning the ropes, all too often does it pose a problem learner pilots changing last second due to a basic lack of time thanks to the pub "ready up scrub" attitude...

Maybe not a default 60 second addition. If there was a change, the Add Time button could become active with an indication that a ship changed. Then it is your choice on whether you need to add time or not. Otherwise, this could be abused quite a bit.
