    Time was just over 15m (with two obscured jumps and a LOT of control binding issues) ... the benchmark has been set people! P.S. apologies if I fall asleep at the stopwatch tomorrow ... it appears to be gone 2am.

    Learn the fight mechanics by purchasing a small ship a low pitch rate like a Viper 3 or Viper 4. It's great training for the fight mechanics of high end ships like the Fer De Lance, Python, or even the Federal Corvette. And it's a much cheaper way to learn!

    I care because I invested a lot of time training in the operation to keep her safe. Not because I cared if she lived or died, but it was something fun to do ;). And tbh the conclusion seemed totally fishy at the time, and felt to me like Drew had betrayed the hard work of the community, either thru his astonishingly poor piloting or thru intentionally throwing the fight. However, Mr Potter's "confession" makes me think it's actually possible that Drew's is really that bad at Elite. Which is slightly better imo, and I would like to think the best of Drew for some reason. Even though he did kinda try to pin her death on the community.

    At the time it happened, that's exactly what it looked like. And I gave Drew a hard time for not making it look more convincing, and further more for saying the (grieving) community decided her fate, just to punch us in balls when we were down. However since you're confirming my suspicions, now I'm doubting it from both ends. Lol. Way to mess with my head Harry. Going to have to start charging you rent. :P

    As I said above in the quote you snipped, it is a statement of principle (not an accusation) that cheaters shouldn't benefit from cheating. And cheating is well defined in the TOS. That is completely different from "criminal" in game acts that have in-game consequences. Not sure why you're comparing the two? They are so obviously different.

    No worries, I'll give running a race a miss then. It was a bit short notice, I'd just read the CG description and thought it would allow a good race, but no time really to drum up interest. :) I'll probably give the CG a quick go myself tonight.

    I have not seen any posts saying that Mode switching is considered an exploit by Frontier. The last reference I saw to mode swapping to refresh the instance/mission board was a moderator posting...(20 MAY 2016) ...in the "Game mode switching for bulletin board missions - Exploit?" https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/252427-Game-mode-switching-for-bulletin-board-missions-Exploit?p=3919559&viewfull=1#post3919559 ...now just because I didn't see any official posting doesn't mean I have not missed it, I am only human after all lol :) If you have a source specifically saying that it is an exploit, please share it so others can be aware of it

    Ziljan replied to a thread Salome Reborn! in Dangerous Discussion
    "by any means necessary" was the key phrase you are ignoring here. Biasing an outcome within the legitimate rules of the game (engineering, training, skill, and even treachery) is par for the course. HOWEVER, rigging an outcome with exploits and possibly cheats is clearly against the TOS and the spirit of the game. It should not be rewarded. That's not a statement about anyone in particular. That's a statement of principle.

    Ziljan replied to a thread Salome Reborn! in Dangerous Discussion
    This isn't about one pilot. It's about a principle. Trying to cast smoke screens after so much historical hot air is a bit of hollow tactic at this point. It's like the story of the wolf who cried boy. At some point it's not about that person anymore, it's about the integrity of the system itself. Do we want a game that rewards skill and effort and luck? Or do we want a game that rewards people who make every attempt to rig the outcome by any means necessary?

    BTW, Luke, all the leaderboard updates I've ever done are online as imgur albums, so if the boards I've done line up with the updates (or any other dates desired) just let me know and I can send you the links. Likewise, I can make a copy of the leaderboard spreadsheet available.

    If you don't have the speed to maintain range, then you cannot avoid getting into point blank range range either. At point blank, there is no dodging a ~500 m/s boost ram. You literally have 1s to get out of the way. If you are flying backwards with FA off then you might have a little more than 1 second to dodge. An Anaconda or Corvette isn't dodging a bullet the size of a football stadium in 1s by leaning on the transverse thrusters. That's like dodging a whole city block that is flying at you at 1.5x the speed of sound. If a competent Cutter wants to ram you and you're not also in a Cutter (or something faster) then you're going to get rammed.

    I wouldn't be opposed to it, certainly, though I have to admit - as Drakhyr said - right now we haven't had any Classic records eclipsed. Even if we all strongly suspect the first of those will be soon, there isn't really a point to doing it for one person. What I would be very interested in seeing is a record of what the leaderboard looked like at each major patch release. Possibly as part of the history. After all, every patch changes the game in its own way. Also, if there is anything I can do to assist you with your work on the history, PM me. I'd be happy to help.

    If a ship has a 150 m/s forward velocity advantage then it can ram you with impunity. Reversky won't do much when you go backwards at 266 with FAoff and they go forwards at nearly 500 m/s. Not much you can do against a competent Cutter rammer. Maybe you haven't met one yet? Well I haven't met a heat Exploiter either so I guess it's possible. Once you do, then you'll know what I'm talking about here. Heat weapons have nothing on Cutter rammers. Cutter 10000 MJ shields + 500 m/s Rams = Exploit = Heat Cannons

    @raiko sounds tempting but given my recent in game time i wouldn't put me down as a definite.

    If the modules that "killed" Salome never should have existed. Then yes, Salome's death should have never existed. Furthermore, the person who claims to have found and killed Salome legitimately, also claimed their fleet was "clean" and later was quoted as having lost "everything" when the targeted module wipe was conducted. The extent of blatant mendacity and misdirection does strongly suggest that the entire event was also potentially hacked as well. Which to me means that Salome's death was fake(d).

    They have more absolute health and are useful for ramming and wiping out "regular" shields. Having vastly superior speed makes ramming or fleeing an IWIN button. And that kind of combined cheese is an Exploit as far as I'm concerned. Picking on heat weapons while neglecting the cheap ramming meta with this shield/speed combo is cherry picking exploits. They're both equally wrong.

    I play. I think the punishment handed down was fair. It was a bit lighter than I would have advocated, but sufficient, and I was very pleased that the essential thing at least was done. I certainly would not have objected to stronger punishment for the exploiters.
