    They are jealous of course. ;) I don't think they feel entitled, its more like they simply want to help new players. The game's learning curve was very steep for me. Any help is good help. I want it on PS4 too, but am waiting for a price drop in the console first.

    You need to use a picture sharing site like IMGUR to post pics now. Then you just post your image's location in your imgur album with the copied BBCode link. This is my proud black beauty, Oprah The Orca Yes, that is the Black Friday skin. No you cannot get it anymore.

    Taking advantage of a bug, glitch, or unintended way of playing the game. My main problem with exploits is that they make for a poor game, not that other people use them, though I do wonder why someone would want to cheat themselves out of playing the game as it was intended. Why even bother playing the game in the first place if you want to circumvent how it's intended to be played? Trophy hunting, I guess. Makes for a pretty hollow trophy though, I would think. For me at least, I don't care for the loss of immersion nor the gamey nature of playing this sort of game in these ways. It's just not compelling. Same reason I didn't bother with scooping up those gems after the Dangerous Games and the like, even though as far as I'm aware that wasn't officially an exploit. It's still a meta way of playing that takes me out of and away from playing at being a Commander in the Pilots Federation in 330X.

    No, dude, I totally got it. You've worked out this whole deep roleplaying experience for yourself - down to where you came from and what you want to accomplish in game. Where and how you got your ships. For you it's a whole immersive experience. And you want others to join you in that experience. To feel themselves clawing their way to the top of a lonely, unforgiving galaxy. Experiencing all of the sights and sounds, and taking in the immersion of being a lonely atom in vast, unknown and unknowable black ocean... But most people just want to fly spaceships and have fun. Let them.

    The security ships make allowances for small mistakes, and you should be mindful not to let small mistakes happen in the first place. Being destroyed for taking someone else's parking spot is presumably to prevent people from griefing. Same with entering a station without docking permission. Next time you shoot a cop and get a 200Cr assault bounty, run away for 9 minutes and all will be well.

"Random" for the victim may not be so "random" for the victor, and ideally one should have to be mindful of where they choose to operate their transport and exploration ships (both of which can negatively impact the BGS for others, I might add).

    Ahem... you literally told people in the OP that this is not their game and that they should either play it the right way, or go play something else.

    In other words, OP, you're acting like a high school kid who hates the "cool kids" because they aren't "deep" enough. Stop it.

    You gave back all of the ships and modules right? Sold them off first, so you could return all of that cash?

    Literally "no time". Like the guy flew it into the CG with stock E-rated shields and lightweight bulkheads. Which brings me to my point - there are any number of reasons why a "Novice" combat pilot might be flying an expensive ship - they could have mined for, or traded for it, or CG'd for it, or exploited for it, or explored for it. He might even be some top gun ace who had support reset his combat rank (in which case the joke might very well be on his attacker). All I'm saying is - If you're going to fly it you should know how to fly it, and always be prepared to eat the rebuy.

    He is a member of The Code to the best of my knowledge, also a member of radio sidewinder if I recall correctly. Whether he was authorized to make the announcement or not I have no idea.

    It would be nice to show that The Code has concrete evidence of this considering the complexity of the BGS. Hopefully there was a diplomatic understanding mutually before this just happened since there's no visible demand from the blockade. Logically if CoR is indeed tanking people's BGS in private or solo, blockading Open has little to no effect on them. This is why I wanted to resolve this diplomatically when I was still a part of The Code. Announcing hostility toward another group's BGS when you're trying to cultivate your own is a death sentence to your own BGS considering the focus of The Code's gameplay. Especially considering the known aversion between The Code and several BGS powerhouses. Strategically this is a bad move.

    If i had backed at the KS stage or soon after, i'd be pretty mad myself at this stage. Those who backed later presumably bought into the whole "It will be ready when its ready" mumbo jumbo.
