Just want to pass along to everyone another confirmation that pirates are patrolling Arkadia space PvP region, with coordinated efforts between two or more persons. An excerpt from a message I received via a forum User post: "I was engaged in some seriously active piracy that day, my Wing had seen the slep and Gave me an Indication on where it was and we were just forming up to engage..." I received this above post today on another EU forum, when I had sent the person a thanks July 7th for not firing on me twice, when I left Arkadia space station in route to help with planet resupply efforts. As circumstances happened, I was not fired on again because my gunner/friend/passenger sent a frowning face in local chat AND the pirate interceptor attacker knew my friend and thus halted the attack. For the moment, since I was not hit nor looted, I want to with-hold the name of the attacker. I'll let their actions determine their karma and reputation progression. Please be forewarned and travel armed and in groups as much as possible.
