    you know what? Up until about 2 months ago, I would have been totally onboard with combat log punishment. Now, though... And here's why. At my new residence, there is no ethernet cable to my room, and wifi is not good enough to reach my room, despite having upgraded the system with Mikrotik and Ruckus. Let's just say, when it comes to houses, they don't build 'em like they used to! So, I'm relying on an Ethernet over Power connection, and the reliability is maddening. It has a habit of disconnecting me just prior to taking down an Elite Cutter, after spending a good 15 minutes taking down the shields in my Vulture. Or just as I complete a mission. Or just as I am about to explode. I have had more than 10 disconnects in the last 2 days, and it always seems to happen at some critical point, like the time that the game checks with the transaction server is exactly the moment when something is about to go boom (either something else, or you). I'm not a logger, but I bet it would sure look like it...

    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 always wished black outs/red-outs played a proper role in this game. It would make for a far more interesting combat arena. I actually jumped into a Mig 15 in DCS a few days ago after a very long break (trying to finish off Elite Combat). I blacked out and crashed into the ground in about 20 seconds (first turn!!!), having been a little too accustomed to ED manoeuvring... Z...

    31.7 in my first Asp X. And a 5A fuel scoop - before boosts and the like, and took it to (almost) Beagle point. I ended up being 0.3Ly (or similar) short of being able to get to BP with my max jump range. I'll never go below 6A again for fuel scoops (ship constraints permitting). Would love a fast flow rate mod! Z...

    I've never been afraid of it. Truth be told, if you did some research and knew what you were doing, you'd likely never suffer a single interdiction at the hands of another CMDR. Having said that, I won't judge anyone, regardless of what mode they play. It's their money, their time, and FD have given us all the option to pick modes. Z...

    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.

    We were told that how we behaved in out first interaction with the Thargoids would influence the relationship. If that 1st encounter has happened, please could you give us some details. If not, please explain the war mongering comments by FD Staff like Ed Lewis.

    "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?

    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
