Needless to say, 3 missiles later from both ships and I'm done. At least it wasn't my Conda.
    Yep, they can gang bang you now. If you get two separate pirate messages while in a system there's a very high chance they'll both end up in the same instance with you when you submit. On the plus side, you can also lead them to a station to get blown up by the security if you're lucky.

    You used to get attacked by wings but I guess they nerfed that now as its more likely to end in rage quit, Ive been attacked by two ships before I think they were just two seperate sharks fighting over the same piece of meat,

    Well the anaconda didn't announce himself till he started interdicting me. That was very shortly after I entered the zone. I figured I'd be fine and never saw the gunship's warning message till he was on my radar and opening up on me. Had I seen multiple NPC messages, I probably would have high waked out from the anaconda.

    I was quite angry about it but thinking about it, I actually like this aspect as it stands. It's basically RNG NPC encounters that add to the difficulty; because let's face it, a single NPC trying to collect a bounty on a player is pretty much a free kill and a roll on the mats he drops...majority of the time.

    Lesson learned.

    Bad day for Pythons, it seems, although mine was due to my own stupidity. Was losing a fight in the HighRES around Abroin 10, panicked, hit an asteroid with shields down.
    Spaz by name...
