I think that battleships primary purpose is less about fighting other battleships, an more about shelling shorelines, and inland bases. in that role, it's actually fantastically balanced. battleships are a extremely durable, consistently damaging, mobile artillery pieces. essentially more comparable to a t4 than a t3. changing them to being glass cannons would make them extremely swingy.... easy to sink, a massive resource investment, and the consistent damage to shields it used to do would turn into utterly overwhelming on shore firepower. I think that if your building mass battleships than something is going wrong, as that's really closer to mass t4 spam imo. t2 navy really should be your primary focus in the late game, with maybe a 1-3 battleships. if the sim speed slowing down is an issue, you might want to remember that your playing on setons. sim speed is always going to be rough on a map like setons.
