    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

    An educated, civilised population is not a waste of money. Universities are not just vocational schools, intended to pump out engineeers and civil servants. If you think the only value of higher education is to increase your paycheck, I truly pity you. I think this is not the case, but the above reads like it.

    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.

    Finland has free education. Despite the efforts of the last few governments (and especially the current one) the universities are of good quality, despite suffering from low funding. In a recent study, it was shown that every euro invested in the universities pays off about five fold. The reverse is also true. The government cutting 200million from the university funding, takes about one billion from the GDP. We are currently governed by idiots, who, much like the Tories, have "had enough of experts". And yes, I'm a little upset over this...

    "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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    Aye, question for you. Just started playing this game, and saw this video of yours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=72&v=7txixfOI0tE

    I'm actually at this exact black hole, but I'm unable to get it to distort it as much as you. Any tips?
