    I once got a Wanted tag after a couple of NPC ships started shooting at my ship while I was gathering mat's in my SRV. I'd already got the "ship under attack" message so I would have thought the game recognised that they shot first. I couldn't target them in my SRV but I took a few unaimed shots at them as I headed back to my ship. Got back, took off, finished hem off and then noticed I'd gained a Wanted tag. And then, for some reason, I got heaps and heaps of NPC bounty-hunters coming after me as a result, which reset the bounty to 7 days every time I had the nerve to escape from them without allowing my ship to be destroyed, even though I didn't ever return fire at them. In the end, I just didn't bother playing for 7 days. Not sure that's what FDev would have intended.

    Thus enabling griefers to destroy anybody with impunity simply by not scanning them prior to attacking. "It was obvious he was a villain by the way he was flying his unshielded T6 into a CG delivery station in a threatening manner so I was forced to defend myself in my god-rolled FdL which I was simply taking out for a pleasant Sunday drive" *EDIT* Also, FWIW... Rules of gun safety:-

    I've taken out elite whatevers in my cargo Python many times PvE, believe me, it's nothing special. Just good shields, armor and thrusters. Due to my rank, elites are 90%+ of what I get when I encounter them. A Python w/ 4 MC's and Plasma does the trick. Now, if MoM changes things, these encounters may become harder. I look forward to them.

    Stealthie replied to a thread Finally! in Dangerous Discussion
    Best QoL change I made to my 'vette was to bung a 6A fuel scoop on it. Jumping, itself, isn't a big pain but jumping when it takes a while to refuel and/or you've got to worry about overheating is a PITA and a 6A fuel scoop solves both those problems. Might seem like a small thing but it completely removed my reluctance to travel with the 'vette.

    I continue to be perplexed by the ships that FDev choose to support with paid extras, as well as the quality of those extras.

    Yep. I think you're right and I also think pew-pew is THE only thing that was ever intended for Thargoids too. If there is/was some kind of alternative and there are clues telling us what else we could have done, fair enough. As you say, when all you give gamers is a bunch of guns, they're going to use them though. If FDev are now going to try and sell us some kind of "There could have been peace but humans are the real monsters!!!" storyline, I call BS.

    Never yet found a ship that can outrun lasers or MCs.

    This would be a terrific idea. Wouldn't even need to be specific things. Even if there was just, say, a 1% chance that when a CMDR visited a station near to a POI they might get a vague tip-off alluding to it. For example, you visit some station in the middle of nowhere and, as you're leaving, you get a tip-off saying something like "Hey, you seem like the adventurous sort. There's a rumour going around about an abandoned surface outpost nearby. I bet there'd be plenty of credits in it for you if you could find it" If the messages were deliberately vague and appeared at several stations nearest to a POI it'd probably necessary to "report" them on a thread here so that people could try and triangulate the location of he actual POI or, at least, make a guess at a bearing toward it.

    Anything that can fit 2 CR cargo racks (and an SRV) can earn you at least Cr60m per hour at Obsidian Orbital.

    On the bright side, you'll have something to do in Colonia for the next 50 days.

    Indeed, it's circular.

    A familiar name from the days of MWO 2014 or 15. Are you still playing that?
    Anyway, best regards and good to see you sir!
    May the High Guard ever be at your back, and may you have your own Ashanti High Lightning to bail you out from the evil Elite Pirates. (I just saw that that rule book would cost 17 Euro now. Gulp!)

"Are you people working under the assumption that playing Elite is meant to be fun?"

"The elite dictionary does not have the word sympathy in it but has about 500 definitions of stupidity​"

The contempt with which the game treats it's players is not accidental. It's by design. The game hates you, that's just the way it is."
