Can it stop slow ships? Freeze them?

Movement in battle can't drop below 1/4.

Minimum speed is 1/2 not 1/4.

And what about against WM ships? Can it drop them to 1/2 too or will they always get boosted back to 1?

Test it...
It's been a while since I tested it, but I'm pretty sure that the WM bonus is applied first, so the minimum speed is .5

I'm not sure where the weight factor comes in, but I think it's either at the same times as the WM bonus, or after it. In other words a heavily loaded WM ship will have speed of .5

That's how it's done in FreeStars at least, and I'm pretty sure it was tested before being coded.

As far as I can remember this is correct. First +0,5 for WM, after that comes the ED reduction.

I concur since with ED max WM speed is 2.

In the other thread about ED's. It was 'confirmed' the max speed of any fleet, WM included, would be 1.5.

Which is correct?

Without testing: first +0.5 for WM, next -1 for ED. Means 1.5 is correct.

WM ship with 2 moves:
2 +0.5 = 2.5
2.5 -1 = 1.5

WM ship with 2.5 moves:
2 +0.5 = 2.5 (can't get higher than 2.5)
2.5 -1 = 1.5

I ran a few speedy tests. It seems to me that combat speed is determined in the order:
1) ship design -2
2) potentially reduced by cargo weight but not bellow
3) potentially increased by maneuvering jet/ overthruster/ WM PRT but not above 2
4) Potentially reduced by energy dampener but not bellow

So a hull design that just meets 2, fielded by a WM can maintain this speed after taking on cargo that would otherwise reduce speed to 2. A non-WM could add two overthruster (seemingly superfluous in the ship & starbase designer) and maintain speed with cargo which would otherwise reduce it by 1. But neither WM PRT or added overthruster will allow a ship in combat where an energy dampener is present, to exceed 1.
