    Entertaining as in entertaining. Don’t think for a second the other ship was not also well engineered. In this case, the player was outsmarted. I’m not a great big fan of how engineering has been doled out either but that’s way off topic being as no unengineered ships were involved.

    Sure or he plain wants to spam the TLB effect as often as possible. Whatever the modivation, my point is it comes at a tradeoff.

    Yes, I understand the trade off, but you’re talking about APAs. Those have another damage reduction all their own. My only point is that the pilot is forgoing a significant amount of damage in order to lay on the effect. It’s not a Large vs a Huge pa. It’s a huge PA vs an apa.

    Perhaps “caught” wasn’t the proper wording. I don’t mean to be adversarial. In fact I agree with you on most things. I’m not claiming you are personally denying PVP to be a feature, I’m griping that so many say it’s not. I’m sure you’ve read plenty of times that “ed isn’t a pvp game” etc often followed by the argument that because of such a claim, combat logging is acceptable. That’s what ai have a problem with. The OP is at its core about combat logging and ai think many of the comments here are designed (intentionally or otherwise) to obfuscate this fact or otherwise derail the thread entirely (looking at you Asp Explorer). I just don’t find that constructive. On the flip side, I agree with you on there being real issues with how the game has implemented pvp and how pvp within elite dangerous impacts all other aspects of Open Play. Is that a bit clearer? I’m always multitasking IRL so don’t always have a chance to proof before posting. Edit: also my iPad has a cracked screen so I end up with some...

    The lockdown mechanic is a strange one, and also a bit lopsided with the 1v3 days. The biggest issue I see with it is however that one cmdr in a fully engineered ship can pretty much do this on his/her own. This is an NPC security problem, and according to FDev this will change in the first Beyond update. With a more aggressive and capable NPC security force, atleast it should take a serious concerted effort to turn a system into Lockdown. We'll see how that works out in a few months. A change in the minimum duration would be most welcome. I'd like to see a ticker, or something similar, that shows the effort being done against the Lockdown and it being turned when the ticker reaches zero. That ticker could also have a higher number, depending on the amount of crime done in the system. As an example, with 100 NPCs killed, you'd need 1000 bounties claimed to turn the lockdown. With 200 NPCs killed, the Ticker would show 2000 bounties needed to turn it. (ignore the 1/10 factor, that's just an example).

    Ozram replied to a thread Aliens are ruining PvP in PvP
    Well that is the core of it. New weapons should be balanced with the rest of the game in mind. The second they decided on a new mechanic that only works for a niche aspect of a niche game, the mistake was made. Balance is at the core of any game and when a new item or mechanic is implemented it should be done carefully and with the totality of how it will interact with all other elements of the game in mind.

    No it isn’t a safe space. What it is is an admittance (including now by you as well) that pvp is a “feature” of ED. Arguing that it isn’t is lunacy as it’s been here from day one. You and I are not arguing. The OP was about combat logging. I’m staying on topic.

    Yes that was dumb as dog poop design decisionmaking. End of story. Whoever thought they were doing a good thing there has no understanding of multiplayer games and should not be in the position the are in.

    You are straying off topic and while I’m tempted to respond (actually think some of your points are valid) I want to stay on course. Combat logging is cheating. If they want one part of what Open has to offer but not another they can go together in a private group. I hate this passive aggressive trash attitude by pve only players who are clearly hellbent on eliminating pvp from the game and refuse to acknowledge that it plays a part on ED and has been there from the onset.

    Ozram replied to a thread Aliens are ruining PvP in PvP
    Id argue it’s about players who refuse to accept the consequences of their choices. They want to go under armed, in Open to run their content but won’t acknowledge the threat posed by other players and readily cheat when presented with the reality of that consequence. OPEN is for everyone. PVP is a part of Open. Having to defend this boggles my mind.

    That clipper! Lovely ship. I’ve had one since way back when Aisling briefly lowered the rank wall. At the time I couldn’t even afford to a rate it so it stayed docked for ages and it was an impulse buy as I just wanted the courier. To this day I still don’t have the rank so my Clipper is extra special to me. Has been a hauler, a miner, a combat ship. Right now it’s got three frags and a feedback rail with size seven biweaves and a whole lot of hull, making it something of an assassin.

    My Conda has three Pacs as it’s main guns. Works pretty well against a variety of targets whether locked on or not.

    Funny thing, I used to find crack every so often through missions. I don’t know what FD have done with the last two patches but it’s been a long time since I’ve seen CIF on offer as a mission reward. Basically, the exploit you’re talking about becomes the only way to access the mats. As to OP, I agree. It seems CL’ing is more tolerated than ever and it is certainly not in the spirit of the game. Having some of the pve only players come here to the PVP subforum and argue that ED is not a PVP game is just trolling.

    Apa on fdl? That’s a waste of a huge hardpoint! Basically they’re forgoing a big chunk of their damage pontential to lay on the effect. I’d get it on a Vulture or FAS but seems like a hefty compromise for the fdl.

    I use a lot of ships and have no intention of selling them. Cobra3 is one I always come back to and also the Viper 3.

    No offence Fray, but why don’t you go and critique the OP and keep sharing your (mostly) good advice with him rather than trying it on me? I’m being polite with you but my whole point here is to share my pov with the OP in the hopes he can take something useful from it, not get into a tit for tat on elements of the game that you and I disagree on.

    Ozram replied to a thread Python Bought the Python in Ships of Elite
    I tried to stay within your pricepoint and build style as much as possible but have a few suggestions. With the multipurpose element of these ships you should consider making the roles not trample over each other. As such, either go cargo or passengers. As a mission runner (I assume that’s what you’re going for) you’ll have hostile NPC come after you and you will need to make some concessions for survivability. You’ve gone lightweight on nearly everything, including distro and bulkheads. This makes your hull very vulnerable. Point defense and weapons won’t save you. You need shielding. I changed your shields to A grade and I swapped your size six cargo racks with d grade SCBs and I swapped your ECM with a heat sink. The synergy here is that you can release an SCB then a heat sink quickly followed by a second SCB which will refil your shields almost completely. The heat sink should be modded for more ammo so you can do this four times if nessessary. I downsized your powerplant as you had excess power...

  1. I completely understand your frustration with the RNGineers. I decided I would just play the game as usual and pick up stuff on the way. When I notice I'm getting close to a few rolls of a high-end upgrade, and then I work specifically on that for a bit. Works for me atleast
    Mobius is the largest private group in the game, with more than 23.000 players. It's separated into two groups, one for US timezones (Mobius PVE) and one for the rest (Mobius). Strict non-PVP group which is well worth a look.
    Hope to see you there

    Hi Arguendo. Thanks for the invite. I'll look into in in the future.
    At the moment I'm not playing the game very actively.

    I'm having some problems motivating myself to do the RNG grind ;-)
