People seem to be really upset with the fact that some players got excited about one little perk of this game. In fact, this little perk is the main reason why I joined SC. Piracy in Open Space. A sandbox where there’s no limit and it’s dangerous enough to keep the challenge and the entertainment up even though I’ve been playing for about one year. Most part of the games do it for me in about a month or so, if not less, because after sometime, after seen what’s there to be seen, I’d preffer discover something new. But hey, I finally found something different.
For months I’ve been watching OS been nerfed by less rewards and rage quitters that can not handle the fact that some people have ships better than theirs. I’ve been harrassed and even got some threats from some of these players. And right now with the station protection all over, it seems pretty bad, as OS became somewhat PvE.
I took a long grind to build a Jaguar to be able to handle myself out there. Got killed countless times and never really complained about it. I found a corporation, learned from them, got them to help me with assignments and players I could not handle. As I said many times before, I understand how this is a teamwork game. At least all the evidence point this way. Roles, squads etc.
I’m not happy with the station protection all over, it’s a turndown and a few players I know don’t even wanna play out there with me anymore. Most part of the time we killed players in open space, we were not only opoen to talk to them and help them, but we would even message tips and invite them to know us and figure thing out in a sportsman like behaviour.
I really think this should be up to a discussion, a reasonable one, with more than simple deial and personal rants. It would be nice to find out what the community and the development think about the future of OS, as this is the only reason I play this game. I don’t like sitting on the menu waiting for battles. I like roamming and never knowing what’s gonna come up next. I like having a challenge that could turn out into a friendship or an epic battle. PvP or PvE just don’t do it for me. It’s a shame to not get a mineral or a misterious container because someone was faster and there’s nothing I can do about it. It’s a shame having all those accomplishments made pointless, because some people can’t handle their loss.
I’ll play over the weekend to see what happens with the new change. Looking forward to hear from all! Cheers!
