Multiplayer games start you out with both a mothership and a carrier. I never did ask the question; Why?
I was hosting a game earlier and I decided that I wanted to play Carrier-Only. I saw the option (as I have many times) to start with TWO carriers. I like that. But then I thought why do normal games start you out with two ships? Why not just the Mothership like Homeworld and Homeworld 2?
What if Gearbox took the carrier away from the start and you have to build your own?
