So-called "emergent content" like this can bite me. I like this game. You don't get to decide if this game is or isn't for me.
    So band together with like-minded soulsd and make a stand against this "handful of players" So many times I see peopel complainign about things achieved by players that have organised and coordinated in-game to achieve things yet the oners complaining simply sit back and expect FDev to "eus-ex-machina" solve their problems for them somehow...It's an IN-GALAXY problem for you, deal with it IN-GALAXY_____________If anything, this sort of action lends itself to even more reason to join uo with, coordinate, agree and cooperate with OTHER PLAYERS, rather than seek ways to alienate and confliuct with others who may not have opposing opinion on the matter at-hand.

    But you bring up a good point about Sirius defending itself. It would be cool if FD gave us a more robust SDF presence and an increase in bounty/assassin missions in these systems when players work the BGS like this.
    As someone who appreciates PvP, I would LOVE this

    Sirius is down right evil. They sort of had this coming after i read the book.

    Wouldn't it make more sense for Sirius Business to help the Sirius faction to prosper and expand? Get them into other systems, control more stations and outposts?
    This would give players seeking to raise their Sirius rep more places to pick up missions, dump exploration data and hand in combat bonds.

    Recently finished Premenition.


    It seems to me that the OP is largely correct that Sirius is linked to everything, however it seems likely that all of this and the manipulation of those interests (metadrive,wreaken etc.) is to prepare humanity to face the thargoids and reduce the chances of humanity being destroyed. I.E. Sirius is working with both Empire and Federation to build the best weapons and ships so that humanity may survive. (Aka. the good of all mankind)

    Now it occurs to me that if Sirius is weakened, humanity (and players) might not have the equipment required to fight the alien invasion (which seems likely to occur).

    It was apparently all being kept quiet because of the panic that knowledge of aliens would lead to, now the existence of Thargoids is publically known in ED the "conspiracy" seems less important.

    Just my 2p

    Would it kill you to read some other things I have written on this thread? It isn't an in-game issue for me. I have my permit already. Merely pointing out that FD could easily render all of this "work" futile with just some keystrokes. And that they have no reason to change the permit system (if you read the OP, you would know about this aspect) because a dozen or so players are having a tantrum.

    I am simply not that invested, but its people like you that keep me coming back to this thread. Its fun to see you guys try to get me to do things that I have no interest in doing. "Work with others." "Fight them with the BGS." Etc.

    What you fail to grasp is the simple fact that I have already stated that forum posts are going to be the extent of my "involvement" here. Sometimes I just feel the need to stir the pot and play devil's advocate. Talk may be cheap, but silence is expensive.

    Besides, I am a pragmatist at heart. I don't see the need to "attack" a faction when it is far more profitable to use them. Don't burn a bridge you might have to cross later.

    If Sirius Permit is a grid to you, then you are in for more grind on a much higher Level in other parts of the game. I had lesser fun while grinding the higher Fed and Imp ranks, but I could have done better to get through it while having fun.

    If you don't like it, try to make it fun by adding some RP, you seem good at it. Works also when you are asked to tidy your room

    As mentioned already elsewhere, there's one tool that needs to be revisited because it's completely out of bounds in means of it's detrimental effect on any MF out there - Security ship killing.

    The Hutton Truckers had been hit with that unbalanced *feature* at the beginning of this year, and 2.3 was said to make it easier for to fight back impending Lockdowns through these actions. Maybe the intend was good, and perhaps something had changed to the better, but in the end it still needs to be worked on.

    Mass slaughtering the Security in any System drives down the influence to rock-bottom in no time, the smaller the System the higher the drop. We've had drops of 25% within 24h.

    And as we all know this game is based on transactions. How do you plan to counter a Wing of people sitting in an instance with constantly respawning Security ships? 1 ship kill = 1 negative transaction. You'd need to turn in 1 bounty voucher to counter it, requiring you to go into a RES site, kill a ship, fly back, turn in.

    Now, unless said RES site is comfortably placed almost on top of a Station, whom you think succeeds in the end?

    You can succeed, but the amount of work required and the (wo)manpower to counter only 4 people killing like there's no tomorrow is completely off the hook.

    I'm all for people being able to influence the BGS even if they're only one or two, but there needs to be a bedamned limit on how much you can drop a MF.

    I give you some good news, and a bit of cmdr to cmdr politics today. As of Monday, a group calling themselves Operation Sirius Business has leapt on board with quite a few people to assault Sirius Corp. This means, they will be sabotaging Sothis to all of your pleasures I am sure. Though, the initial reddit post has been deleted, and the poster deleted his account as well, You can probably find DJTruthSayer and get an invite. However, I do encourage you to join Ghosts of Col 70 instead. Why? Because we are not concerned about the populace of the galaxy, as the Operaion Sirius Business gladly ferry's people to Procyon, despite the Ghosts current call for a Blockade of the region. Sirius Business intends to just work the system. Let you get your sirius permits and such. While I, a Pirate of sorts, Do not find this very "Fun" and would much rather laugh in the face of your despair as you try and fail to unlock the Sirius Permit! (As much hate and salt mining as I will get for this.) Maybe then, You'll ask why I am doing this.

    Maybe, after realizing that you and others cannot get the Sirius Permit, you too will want to join my crusade for not only for lore, but out of protest of permits as a whole. Think about it, The only purpose ANY permit to ANY system ever serves is a time sink or a locked gate. There is zero actual gameplay behind why they are there, just some very fanciful lore that makes it ever so convenient to have them. One would expect that upon beating this Time Sink, you would be rewarded for your hard work. When in reality, you'll be laugh at and mocked for the very normal system you will be presented with. Sirius unlocks Palin in a roundabout way sure, but Qwent is most definately the worst engineer out of the bunch, if ANY piece of content should be gated behind a blatant time sink such as the Sirius Permit, then they should remove the Sirius Permit, move Palin somewhere else, and put her behind a permit!

    Now, lets continue on before I go on a Rant about permits. As you may have known, if you read reddit or this forum, Iv been actively trying to recruit people to join my cause against Sirius Corporation. Iv tried lore and RP, Iv tried just simply asking nicely. Yet, I have failed in most cases to drum up not much else but your salt. HOWEVER, Today! Today is a good day for the Ghosts, as we have begun our bombing and lockout campaigns.

    Let it be known that, even if DJTruthSayer and Sirius Business Gang say that a system known to harbor Sirius Corp is a "Safe Zone" to them, I will target it. No system of Sirius Corps is safe!

    Before in the past people have asked me for evidence, So from here on out, I will do just that and provide you with evidence of my claims. Sirius Corp is the galaxies Villians, and they surely brought on the Thargoid Incursion upon us!
    This is not just a Salome/Kahina plot line, this was not just a Drew Wagnar cooked up story, Sirius Corporation, and the Premonition Books, are a Prequel to the events to come, which I believe the Federation, Empire, and Sirius Corp will take center stage alongside the Thargoids.

    1. Here is the wiki that provides lore on Sirius Corporation: http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wik...us_Corporation
    One you'll note that based on the sources and information provided here, the author of the article is correct in assuming that Sirius Corporation is the biggest, most powerful, and influential corporation in the galaxy.

    2. This document here, will help to clarify a LOT of my source material: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...oRLJiGvk/edit#

    3. If you note the chart at the very last part. Figure 1. Zoming in to 200% you'll see JUST how big Sirius Corporation really is. The worst part is, Sirius has ties to every company who makes ships. Either through a subsidary company like Wreaken Construction, or a direct customer to Sirius Corporation. Sirius Corp has a direct monopoly of ships being produced FOR the Federation AND Empire, as well as the Alliance.

    4. Even SiriusGov and LYR is a bid at what they call "Population Management." Call me a Tinfoiler, call me a conspiracy theorist, but all of this looks very much like FDev is setting up Sirius Corporation to be the big bad evil menace of the galaxy moving forward!

    5. Meta Drive Tech Speculations: https://inara.cz/galaxy-galnet/37/

    So Now that we have all of this out of the way, I want to clarify that I mean to continue, my group means to continue. Either until Frontier Developments steps in, or I am proven wrong with legitimate in game lore. Continue to blockade Procyon, Continue to lockdown systems. We've already had minor success in the area of UA Bombing targets, and will continue to do so until they are completely shut off.

    DISCLAIMER: (because some of you dummies need one) THIS IS NOT AN ATTEMPT TO DO THE BACKGROUND SIMULATION. I DO NOT INTEND TO WORK THE BACKGROUND SIMULATION. I WILL NOT BE TURNING IN MISSIONS TO DO THE BACKGROUND SIMULATION. YES, I DO NOT WANT YOU TO GET ACCESS TO SIRIUS. AS I HATE PERMITS AND CONSIDER IT A PROTEST UNTIL FDEV GIVES US ACTUAL REWARDS FOR HAVING THEM! DONT LIKE IT? THEN OPPOSE US, DONT JUST BE A FORUM WARRIOR! NO WE ARE NOT GRIEFERS BECAUSE THERE ARE LEGIT THINGS YOU CAN DO TO COUNTERACT ANYTHING ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS ME WILL DO.
    How did it go? Sirius is going strong in Sothis btw!

    I thought access to one of the Engineers in a way was a reward, as permit and Engineer access happen roughly at the same time.

    If this were to succeed, wouldnt it also deny access to Palin?

    Well tough, I already have mine, and access to Qwent, and Palin, and well, everybody, so there's no reason for me to care. Do what you want, it doesn't impact me in any way.

    I'm sure this died a horrible death back in July already.

    It's now November, close to December......
