    That's the spirit. I used to play in solo/pg a lot. TBH the game is a lot more fun in open - solo mode is a bit like playing a bioware rpg without the main plot, with just the fetch quests.

    Nice strawman you got there! Did you make it yourself? May I borrow the hat? :D Just kidding a bit. When I said not my business, I meant that after all the warnings about the first rule of Elite literally everywhere, it's not my business to know why people still do it, but I did want to impress upon the OP that this problem was entirely of his own making. I don't wish to get into the whole open/solo discussion, or the morality of different gameplay types, or any of that - there are many topics that deal with that endlessly on a daily basis. I'm saying reality is what it is - Open is what it is - and ignoring the current state of affairs and pretending things are the way you want them to be rather than how they are, gets you killed. Which is exactly what happened. Open is what it is, and there are ways to survive in it. What the OP was doing isn't one of them, and trying to make him feel better over a few dozen million won't really help him - but realizing his mistakes so that he doesn't do them again, will....

    Here's one. I never flew without rebuy ever since I got my first Cobra III all the way to a vette and cutter. The don't fly without rebuy, aslo known as the first rule of Elite, is so prevalent and constantly mentioned around reddit, these boards, in yt comments, etc, it's impossible to miss. Not sure what you guys are smoking when you decide to do it anyway bit hey, not my business. But that wasn't the op's only mistake. OPEN is a giant free for all PvP zone, among everything else the game offers in solo/pg. OP had a cheap Python that cost like 1/4 of an A rated one that can survive long enough to escape a player attack. I'm willing to bet OP's build was fairly squishy - logging with that into open, flying into Maia that is usually full of players, that was just asking for it. So he gets angry and name calls other players who play differently than he does. So they're dinguses who can't keep it in their pants, they would likely call him a salty carebear, both approaches equally silly and infantile. OP put...

    I laughed at this then realised this sucks hard. I hope you get this sorted mate. Still a very good "Dit" (Navy slang for short funny story) anyways:). Incidentally...DECE talk show? Is this a discord channel? (Don't use discord as much as I should).

    I've never quite got the mindset of buckyballing. So much gets missed. It's not exactly exploring is it if you are going to get a 10 second snapshot of a system before you zoom off to the next scoopable. Not my cup of tea personally. Not knocking it just an opinion.
