    It is not anonymous when you boast in here that you drop things for players to pick up.

    Certainly one of the better ideas I have heard in some time.

    You demand people answer to you on your thread and when you are offended you negative rep their comments. Grow a pair.

    This is me, not because I resent the existance of pirates, just I want to be the one that wins the fight. I'm sure that will come one day with practice.

    The only time I've been shot down and been properly annoyed is when after being attacked I made it to the safe zone around the SS and found that I still got shot down.

    Support kindly informed me that that was correct, since players are still vulnerable for a short time after leaving PVP in the interests of fairness apparently.
    Now that does suck and needs to be changed.

    Of course now I never run I just turn round and fire back. It's all skills after all.

    I do think it would be cool to have space missions too.

    I completely agree with this, space needs to implement the use of skill points rather then just game play skills. I have a few crew mates with "dozens of level's" above me in mounted laser hit, and captain, but couldn't get me below half health in a quad fight on a good day. That is simply unfair for those that have invested, they do deserve a better chance, and the lack of it has definitely contributed to the infamy of piracy.

    Also probably contributed to the continued existence of certain groups because they are soul holders or where, in certain game mechanic knowledge for space pvp, because it is almost all game play skill and knowledge base rather then skill point based.

    I Completely agree to your agreement :D.....
    When I first came to space well before my first Privateer... I was really surprised that it was not a skills based game like on planet but a RL skills based game. One I still find myself lacking after the year I have spent up here as a PVP.
    But on the other hand if we did make this a skill based game it would in turn lead to people not being able to fairly travel from point A to point B let alone point Z

    Updated OP with a few bits and pieces would love for more ideas to come in to add to the OP... Perhaps if there is a trend from the previous years of similar posts MA my treat them all as a census and maybe take note of some of the ideas?

    Who knows we can only hope I guess?

    It's all about perception... I follow the rules of the game, the rule of the game allows me to shoot you down and loot you, the rule of the game does not entitle you to abuse me.

    That is a very contentious point. Wait for MA to add another space exploit and then get back to me on how you and your ilk respond to it.

    At a random Trainstation in the real world:

    Beware of pickpockets!


    Is it legal for pickpockets to steal from me?
    I Saw the warning sign before I entered the station.

    We, the people decide what is stealing and what is not. Mindark creates the world and the possibilities.
    Because it is possible to steal does not mean it is right.

    Pickpocketing is stealing because it's done by stealth without the victims knowledge or the possibility of preventing it.

    Entering into combat and winning which allows the winner to loot is not stealing.

    And its not as if looting is the only thing pirates do to cause grief to other players.

    Just came from the game where I found that players in your ship Posthistory.were following Varyag on a skilling run and killing any mobs that came near. The whole purpose was to prevent players on Varyag repairing and to taunt Yoshii. And while you never made any comment Posthistory, you were online on another channel - probably on your ship at the time.

    Among the taunts was the one "go on. complain to MA there is nothing they can do about it"

    Posthistory, you come on here starting a thread pretending to be reasonable - but its obvious by you are actions you are mocking all decent players. Lack of empathy and enjoyment in causing pain to others - that is psychopathic.

    And one last thing, I am getting very tired of you & your pirate mates calling me a spy for NVK or whatever the name of that bunch of losers is called - it is offensive and an attack on my reputation, which believe it or not, I take seriously.

    At no point was anyone stuck... nor did I impede their movement.
    At any point you could have shot us out of the sky, as we were in a PVP environment.

    So if you wish to take my words out of context be assured I will correct that.

    People are smarter than falling for the overt ploy to make them spend their money for no gains at all. Now I'm beginning to wonder who is really behind all this.

    Hey San, I haven't opened this thread to comment on day to day activities in Space or of PVP. I was merely responding to something that was taken out of context. I take what we are discussing here very serious and welcome serious debate, and serious contributions to improve everybody's experience in space.

    If you would Like I am happy to open another thread to talk about my day to day activities and why I did X...

    A particular instance is only discussed as an example for a pattern. If this was an isolated incident, it would be of litle interest. I am interested in the bigger pictures. I question the motivations behind it, if you kindly re-read my statement.
