Sorry if this was discussed in middle of somewhere.
Since Vaygr upgrades are done to an entire class, in classic HW2, for example passing a Hig scout to a Vaygr player and Vaygr upgrades fighter speed to level 1 and that Hig scout also gets an upgrade and get level 2 and it gets upgraded again and lasts even if the scout is passed back to the original owner.
Now in HWR this also works for passing HW1 ships to Vaygr.
Is this intended? This will mean that every HW1 player with a Vaygr player in team will want to pass everything they have (except for capital ships that cannot be passed) to upgrade them, which means every Vaygr upgrade is worth doing as early as possible even if it means getting RU donated from HW1 players.
But honestly this should not be the way played as this just does not happen in 1v1 or team games where Vaygr is not present in your team.
