thank you CIG, I’ve been worried about this for while. Who on earth can afford 20 Banu defenders to defend their BMM or Starfarer or Idris when attacked by a pirate org of 50 pirates? Of course no one, and I don’t want to be FORCED to join an org as I quite literally can’t trade, sight see, explore or mine without being literally swarmed by ever more powerful pirates with ever greater armadas unless i join an equally powerful armada of traders. I think that is not much for fun for many people.
Don’t give in to the demands of the pirates and break the game for the rest of us. I really pleased with what’s been said by CIG so far, but worry about coercion with threats of refunds and broken promises.
We know many of you have questions about piracy and what’s changed and what hasn’t and what our thoughts for the future are.
We’ll be talking about this with Todd on Friday during Reverse the Verse, but for now I can tell you that the designer on Spectrum was talking about his specific contribution to work on the insurance system in 3.0/3.1, how stolen ships perform in the immediate, and not about the ultimate direction of any piracy-related game system.
As mentioned on today’s Subscriber’s Town Hall, join us Friday at Twitch.tv/StarCitizen at 8AM Pacific and we’ll see what Todd has to tell us about our thoughts on the future then.
