I'm not super concerned about this, as it is an unusual situation.  I am generally a lurker, but just wanted to post my experience here as an opportunity to make things work more intuitively to the uninitiated (thanks for the heads up about distance to controller!)  I don't think the current behavior is anyone's first guess as to how things would work.  Given the rarity though, I understand that there are many more urgent things for developers to work on. I will say, I'm not sure how I feel about broadly applying the "don't put yourself in that situation" perspective.  My situation was rebuilding a fallen ally's base.  In an ideal world, I would never have to be rebuilding a friend's destroyed base as it downgrades.  I would certainly like for that to never come up again!  But it's a rainy day scenario, and despite everyone's best efforts to live, sometimes we will have to recover from the worst.
