    Interesting, I just bought Stellaris and EU this weekend because of the Steam sale. I haven't played EU yet but I'm loving Stellaris at the moment and I'm finding it fairly similar to Civ in terms of complexity.. In some respects it's actually a bit simpler. It's possible to be quite strategic in Civ with combat and terrain etc, while using the different strengths of different units. Perhaps I haven't fully explored combat in Stellaris yet but it seems to be a lot more streamlined and you essentially just assemble a navy of customised ships and then attack the opposing navy. The one with the higher strength and best combination of ship designs vs the opponent wins. Where it's more complicated is in all the little bonuses that you get from factions, leaders and the like. I haven't got my head around optimising those yet and I'm also completely unsure about which order to do the technologies in.. I miss the tree view that Civ has.

    It's just really annoying if you're not around even the evening UK time. The rest of the time it's really hard to get a game and you end up waiting for ages. I wanted to go for quad elite but after a few evenings of waiting 45 minutes for a game I decided I didn't need it that bad ;-)

    The problem is, though, that to describe RNGineering as providing 'unpredictability' or 'an edge' simply understates the reality that faced experienced PvP wing fighters when the 2.1 bomb dropped. Quite simply, the choice was mod up to apex spec, or uninstall. Going to a CG in an unmodded or not-much modded wing of 4 isn't fun or a challenge, it's just suicide. Before 2.1 I had about as much experience as anyone in game of leading wings with all the things you cite: good composition, practised wing combat tactics, etc - literally some of the best and most provenly successfuly EU-time wings then in game - and half of my most valued wingmates are no longer in game because of 2.1.

    You did yourself proud. It would be a great thing to have a way to 'Free' any type of Slave, in game. What you did was, likely, the best alternative available. I hope the Commander that donated the help, understands.

    And I repeat: so what? The guy was probably planning on a self destruct directly following the presumed refueling, so same difference. Actually, now he has a funny story to tell, so things went better than planned.

    More like John "Wick" Raanes. Actually, there's a whole passel of phenomenal pilots within the SDC ranks. @on topic, one thing I think is sort of weird is people's over-reaction to the fuel corgi getting blown up; his trip was most likely always going to end with a trip to the rebuy screen, so in this case his adventure was a little more interesting then a simple refuel job followed by a self destruct.

    This game needs a better class of villain. Pathetic. Thumbs down.

    I know your history here, too, and I'm certainly not going to dismiss what you have to say out of hand. I don't think it's helpful at all that the community isn't able to tolerate constructive feedback from a player with 1000+ hours of playtime who's willing to share the reasons why he no longer plays. I can't really imagine that everybody here is totally overjoyed with how development has (or hasn't) gone.

    No, that's all a bunch of rubbish. What happened to him has nothing to do with cheating or station ramming. You're telling a player to use Block instead of advising him to use literally the barest minimum of defensive measures. You're advise is terrible, and you should be embarrassed to have even given it. Oh, and as far as your last little snippet is concerned; he's the one who was belittling the players, as are you for validating his opinion; I was simply setting him straight about who was who in that scenario.

    Upon reflection I think my own position is cautiously pessimistic:)

    Like I said, I'm receptive to the idea of rebalancing on some level. For instance, I think the current TTK is ridiculous in PvP due to absurd shield stacking, but on the other hand I have zero problem with my chosen combat ship being and ultra deadly weapon meant for one thing only, to the point where I need to have it delivered wherever I plan to kill players. I think reaping the benefits of specialization is a good thing. You very well may be correct there about people ignoring those hollow squares. When I see a hollow square, or a bunch of them, I behave as cautiously as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. That goes quadruple if I notice that the hollow squares belong to a bunch of my friends:)

    Ok, so I always knew your line on this topic was "block anyone who dares to attack you for any reason" no matter how much you insist it's just "block cheaters!" I'll be perfectly honest with you; the idea that you would tell this guy who is flying sans shielding to block someone who would cause him harm before you would advise him to at least make an attempt at properly equipping his ship and learning to fly it is a pathetic joke. Good god, Bob. For shame. OMG I was thinking the same thing. To NOT shoot that down would be like a crime against nature.

    Slight correction; my uber FdL cannot even jump at all. In fact, it can hardly low wake without running out of fuel:)

    Interesting story. I'm sure the players who sent you to the rebuy screen are enjoying the heck out of it. And, to put it bluntly; if you're flying an unshielded t9 it's you who is the loser.

    No, I most definitely don't agree with the OP. The people who don't want to play in Open for fear/irritation/lack of interest in PvP aren't going to come back or stay in Open just because the killing/defensive potential of combat ships has been modified to some minor degree to give the trader or all purpose ship less of a disadvantage. These players simply don't want to deal with PvP under any circumstances, so modifying my uber deadly FdL isn't going to make them any difference. Now, I don't necessarily disagree that current combat load outs should be seeing revisions and re-balancing, just not for the same reason as the OP. Also, I categorically disagree with the notion that pure dedicated combat rigs shouldn't have the edge on multi-purpose ships. Why shouldn't a specialist ship be rewarded for specializing?
