      Are you the one who was accused of playing a glitch filled, highly exploitable, barely balanced alpha game with a server on top of it. . . and telling people to pay your protection money or be killed? If I was running an alpha server like that, with PvP by consent only, and I heard you were doing that I would probably ban you for picking your nose too loudly if that's what it took. . . because it makes you Captain Super Cheeze and you deserve to be hit by the same flexible rules you follow. If you were breaking someone's ship at that time I was typing /ban. . . I would try to hurry up. I don't see a problem here.

      I don't see lying. I see how you could interpret the description incorrectly but it can also be interpreted to mean exactly what you are complaining about. PvP is on but that doesn't automatically mean open PvP. You can't just fly around and shoot whatever (commonly known as "randomly attacking"). Your definition of a derelict ship might not be correct under those rules. Building has an import restriction, that is the meaning of the description. AI may not be very good but it is still a vanilla setting so you have no case. In fact, it is probably the same easy setting people use in early single player to get up to speed with how stuff behaves. Vanilla also gives pirates access to any ship created by default. . including ships that have no weapons. I had some pirates come attack me in some turret bases I saved once. . .it was hilarious. . but still vanilla settings if you want to go hairsplitting. All of that is in the description as I read it. Your interpreting it in a certain absolute way for it to be anything close to deception. In my experience with people management, people kicked out of something for a weak reason have often been walking the line for too long and finally gave just enough of an excuse to use the rules to deal with them.

      I'm not on the server. You got me there. I think my point is that I am someone who has grown to hate multiplayer because people always ruin it with hostile antics and shenanigans that cause amusement for them and frustration for me. I don't work for them so I don't see why my world should revolve around their idea of fun. I don't fight well. I just might get my ass kicked by pirates with salvage beams. . .let alone someone who loves combat in a doom cube. I'm actually OK with how I am. If I get better. . . eh. . . OK. . .if I never get better. . . eh . . . whatever. Maybe some day I will choose to get good. . . but I think I have a right to play the laid back style too. That is not a crime that should be punishable by constant harassment from people who love ganker combat and demand the server use hard settings. Why can't different groups like different settings? Aren't we all testers here? Shouldn't we be testing all variations of server settings? Is there really even a correct setting in an alpha test?

      So, here is a server and it sounds like it wants to lean toward being more laid back. . . and there are a lot of people accused of antics and shenanigans who are now outside complaining. Call me crazy but, depending on their reputations elsewhere, that makes me feel better about the server not worse.



      I don't know why you think you need to go on a crusade over a couple of people running a server. . . as if nobody can play the game anywhere else. . . but I guess you are passionate about it so all the power to you. I will certainly make a case when things bug me.

      From what I have heard here so far the only thing I feel has real merit is the tweaks suggested for the AI. I particularly like the suggestion of progressively harder waves of pirates with bigger ships. I don't mind hard PvE. It's a good reason for people to work together.

      thats uhh, thats a pretty good rundown on why not to play here unironically (in light of that statement though you should definitely play here ironically and be as obnoxious and trollish as you can get away with however, just in my own humble opinion)

      Not to poo on your idea, because it is a good one that I have had myself, but the pirate wave system has been broken since implementation. It being DOA is why the pirates never seem to work correctly on servers. It doesn't matter how many waves you add or how fine tuned you make them by having their difficulties tuned, they won't work. It randomly selects a Single pirate wave to spawn and never uses anything else. So if you were to have 100 scaling pirate waves based on mass, there would only ever be one single wave to spawn. I have asked Schine to fix this multiple times over the course of nearly two years, most of the responses have consisted of "That isn't important" or "We aren't going to work on something like that right now". It would be a wonderful thing if it actually worked, but it doesn't sadly.

      What's the deal with a few people trying to spoil others' stuff, like advising to be obnoxious, when they don't get their ways?

      Thought you'd just ignore what you don't like, especially after the thread on how to improve PvP where you were very adamant about not forcing someone's playstyle on others...

      I don't know about everyone else here, but I will sometimes jab at TSA because

      • It is counter-intuitive to disable blueprint uploads as a means to protect from griefing
      • They fail to understand that "overpowered" is an entirely subjective term and there is no such thing as "overpowered ships" which I feel is a testemony to the TSA administration's lack of knoweldge about the game in spite of the owner claiming to have been here in 2013
      • They have no PvE content, unless they have since changed it since I last logged on, NPC pirate ships did not even have weapons
      • Several well known community members can testify against TSA for failing to be impartial when using administrator powers, such as when Veilith was in the mumble channel with admins who were saying "Ban him before he kills me!"
      • There is a severe breach of trust between several well known community members and the TSA administration due to recent events
      Got nothing to do with PvP my guy

      the server is cancerous, 70% of the experienced community is banned. Admins don't even know what they are doing, It's only fun for noobs for like 2 hours until you get bored of no PvP or PvE then you go to LvD.

      This server is a joke. I started on this server. The starting galaxy was crowded so I went to a neighboring galaxy (4 hour flight time) and they kept revoking my system control. Anyhow, I have my own server now so problem solved.

      No, I completely agree that the server is less than ideal and critics are useful, I'm calling out the few who come back and crap on it for the sake of crapping on it.

      Well, I still have hopes that the admins will actually get to their right minds and realise that the blueprints uploads help more than they do harm, but until then, I'm waiting... while playing somewhere else.
