Why is maneuverability even a thing in space?

Why wouldn't it be?

It is a rating based on how powerful the ship's thrusters are compared to its mass. More maneuverability means you can orbit your opponent at a faster rate, and if you can orbit them faster than they can turn to follow you, you win. Assuming, of course, you're fighting against the computer or someone dumb enough to sit there while you fly circles around them.

Because it's a game and not some hardcore astronaut simulator.

There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.

Yeah, I'm not sure. Maybe my ship's sensors can't detect heat to that degree.

Star Citizen has an enormous black hole, though. It's called their bank account.
