Patch Notes Update Update 3.3.02

Has anyone else seen System Authority ships from the same faction attacking each other? Was in a RES in Nu Tauri last few nights, and seen quite a lot of this. Every time I see weapons fire, I fly over there only to find no pirates but lots of System ships firing at each other. Went on for 1 hour+. (Checked, and double-checked; all from the Simbad Regime).

As a developer, I can imagine how it might easily happen. If you have a bug where one System ship might interpret accidental fire as an attack - without checking if the 'guilty' ship is another System ship - then it could trigger a cascade of "A (System) ship fired on a System ship, attack the (System) ship!" actions and reactions.

There are also missions from a faction wanting you to eliminate their own faction ships. Might be related?
