    Someone tried to kill me in my Gunship at Wyrd yesterday by ramming me in the mailslot. He bounced off. Then he tried ramming me again, and bounced off me again. I typed "Nice try" into local, and landed. He left. I love open

    Post Commander. One rank to go. Anywhere. Just choose a well-populated, prosperous system with at least two Fed factions, and start handing in bounties or trading. Civil war states will give decent massacre or surface scan missions, you can filter for those. Find your own little corner and own it. Ranks won't take long

    No, you're right. I still don't get your point.. I have to change MY play style to accommodate the play style of someone else? yeah dude, if you've been reading this thread you would know that's exactly what I did. My question is: How does that encourage community growth? Again, not sure what your point is here. I see asshats in a game and I block/ignore them. I don't trash talk/message them. They attacked me, I blocked them. That was the extent of our relationship. Your failure here seems logic based, without regard to carebears.

    Yeah, it's important to note for sure. You'll have a lot of people choosing to do something because they've read that's what everyone is doing. But I stick by my point about players doing what they find most satisfying. I think when you pick apart the psychology of a player and define "satisfying" you'll find that you're saying the same thing I am.

    ehh.. you've missed the point. If we take two players of equal skill and drop them into the same ship.. But equipped one for trade and the other for bounty hunting... the bounty hunter will win against the trader every time. Further more: HAD I equipped to combat an opponent of equal or more power than I wouldn't have been doing the trade CG because I wouldn't have the cargo space for it. Do you get it yet? That's not "Open" that's CLOSED. As in "you have to play by our rules or lose" Different players every time. As I said, the problem is getting worse, not better.

    To be clear, this is a definite side effect to the "meta" Not text book definition of meta. Whether through their own research or not, players will gravitate towards the most satisfying method of play.

    lol, right?!?! Like.. Even I'M guilty of making that WoW PvP twink.. but there's an example of a game that says "sure, do that thing you want to do as long as you're not hurting our other players." I could use my WoW twink in Open world PvP.. ON PVP servers. WITH PVP balanced and rules of engagement. ED simply doesn't have the structure to support that currently. Because of that, older players will start to age out of content and they are only going to have fun picking on the younger/more casual players in open. It's a natural progression for an MMO style videogame that if FD doesn't police will cause the game to prematurely die off.

    Same here, most my in game purchases come from Bing points. Announced last week, that is how it works indeed. That's a good call by them, it respect my budget while allowing me to throw more money at a product I love.

    "Meta" is used to describe the flavor of the month that people who min/max in a game decide to use at any give time. If "everyone is using Frag cannons" then that's the meta. People doing other things will still have success, but the "meta" is used to describe what the game has become when boiled down to min/max. In that example it becomes a short range game built around the use of Frags. Even though there are other tools at ones disposal, being "the meta" generally means that if you can't beat them, you are forced to join them. The reality is that it it's usually the result of an imbalanced sandbox and players are simply like water rolling in the direction of whatever is strongest.

    There's a broken interdiction mechanic which collides two player ships when the interdiction mini game results in the victim losing. FD is updating the mini-game in 2.3 so that this doesn't happen. But as I'm playing live... the aggressors ship collided with mine, bringing my shields down at the start of the encounter. Again, I was using 4a shields, not the best for my Conda by far.. but here I was setup for trading when they were set up for murder. Hardly a fair fight, his DPS was so high there was literally no point in deploying my hardpoints, I could not repel firepower of that magnitude. I'll never know why seven CMDR's killed me 3 times this weekend because not one of them attempted to communicate using anything except their weapons. I'm not really sure there's room to misinterpret their message as anything other than "we don't want to play with you" And THAT is a destructive statement for ANY game.

    TRUST me.. in the real world, we also can't have nice things because of real world jerks. That doesn't mean it's right. I only started dabbling in private mode a couple weeks ago. Prior to this weekend and for the last almost 2yrs I've never been killed by another CMDR. Been interdicted lots, sure.. but never killed. My point of view is that the credit loss represents a time commitment I can't have back. Now it was my decision to play in Open, I'm not ignoring that, in fact I am regretting it. I could have used that time to have done ANYTHING else with my life. In game or out. Every credit loss is a reminder that. Credit loss due to bored CMDR's in Open when all I want to do my thing and enjoy meeting new people is disheartening. It's the antithesis of a "good time" for me.

    Cool beans. But I do get the impression that these store updates are just meant to drain our accounts of FD points before nameplates are released. - - - Updated - - - Dear lord that's hot.

    Thanks dude. I'll admit I was feeling overly targeted after this weekend. Both in game and here ;)

    \_(ツ)_/ Check yourself. I'm 37 with two kids and a full time job, yet I love this game and it's community after playing for nearly two years. My preferred play-style is in Open alongside the random CMDR's I meet around the galaxy. I can be just as committed to this game and just as mature as you without having to enjoy being murdered by bored children.

    all told I lost about 23mil in buy backs this weekend. But I think what shocked me most was just how crazy things were out there. My gut told me that taking the trade Conda Sat night in Open there was a bad idea, I wasn't in system for more than 100ls before a Cutter proved me right. I submitted to his interdiction was ready to have a friendly chat about how much cargo to hand over. I never even deployed a hardpoint and he murdered me. He didn't even have a friendly hello for me. Alright, fine.. I went to private and did the trades for the CG. Then I refit for combat, went to Open and headed out to the nearest Haz Res... OH look! Fellow CMDR's doing some bounty hunting! I wonder if they want to wing up?! Hey wait, they're shooting at me... Boom, buy back screen #2. Again, not even a friendly hello from those guys. Alright Alright.. time to put it down and go to bed..

    I didn't realise that you could buy Midnight having already bought Black Friday, without knowing that's it's literally the same black. I thought it might be subtly different in some way

    I'm in and around Cubeo grinding Empire rank and prismatic shields. Not sure what I'll do next. Hope against hope that we'll get Horizons soon I guess.
  2. I'm active all over. Usually I am between Chuanabosso & LHS 3447 when I am in the bubble. If I am trading I am in empire space. If I take a day to do Fuel Ratting then I am sitting at Fuelum. I do spend most of my time outside the bubble.
