Finally giving it a go after years of playing ED. Is there really any point to the combat option? It seems like it's just not worth it, versus just delivering stuff. And why cant you get your merit rewards in the system you are fighting it out in? And the bounties! Don't get me started. And while we are at it, gently caress CRIME AND PUNISHMENT!!! I accidently graze a system authority vessle with a beam, get a 300 cr bounty, no big deal. But when I went to pay it, I got shipped off 5 jumps away!!!! FOR 300CR!!!! By far the lamest addition to the game.
