I think as you improve your standing with a faction you get better and harder missions, I am now allied with Empire and a Squire so starting to get assassination missions and pirate clean up jobs for the Empire as well as local faction jobs, nearly everyone is green to me, but the status bar on the stations is only just green at the end so a way to go yet.

Lots of mechanics FD are keeping to themselves for us to find out, also stop people exploiting them I guess.

One more upgrade for my Cobra and its all A modules :grin:

Sweet Blackie!
I'm still just an outsider with the empire, but I'll get there. Thinking about setting up shop somewhere else than Phra Saman though. It's the longest flight to base... Especially when your hold is full of rare items.

I really hope so, because apart from hunt on some X terrorist/general/whatever for 150+k credits, there are no other missions that provide even the slightest challenge. Now some will say that human players are there to do that, but MP is rather broken and unreliable at this time, plus space is big, it needs to be filled with dangerous AI to give us some kind of scare and run for our lives every now and then.

Not sure what happened since beta, but I have a feeling fights are easier, if not too easy now. Enemy don't even attack in groups but come 1 by 1 just to be slaughtered. It feels like I fly on autopilot when in combat compared to how much harder encounters felt to me in beta. I am quite sure they made it easier, just don't understand why since it kind of kills the paranoia part when you are far from friendly faction space.

I hear ya mate, just did an Empire Navy hunt the pirate mission, apart from taking ages to find any pirates in the USS's, when I did, the fights were very one sided even two on one.

I think they did tone things down, not sure if you follow the forums or not but its turned it quite a mess over there lol.

I am struggling to kill pirates before they frame shift out sometimes, mind you I have come across a few big bad NPCs who just get me to no shields and hull damage on the first pass.

Indeed,

Bounty hunting is now my primary method of making money. It's easy but still fun. I'd like to do more missions, but they seem to offer very little reward for what you have to do.
I understand that it may change when your reputation is better. So I tried to do a mission where I had to kill X pirates in system Y for the Empire. I arrived at the system and killed a few pirates. Then I encountered a ship that made a counter offer: kill of Z authority vessels for faction so-and-so and you will get more money. My mission was now updated, with the new description and faction, but I never accepted the offer!?! Since I didn't want to change sides I abandoned the mission. Then in my status it said I failed my original mission for the Empire! So now I damaged my reputation for the Empire instead of improving it. How was I to act??? :shock:

Was that recently Vander?

I have never had this offer when doing the Naval empire pirate missions, only when doing faction pirate bounty missions, before 1.05 I think this was a bug they have now fixed, I was halfway through and it reset the counter to zero I also abandoned it, yesterday I had one same circs but this time two opportunities to complete the mission.

I am now a Knight of the Empire :lol:

Yeah, couple of days ago. Still struggling with these missions, but at least they pose some sort of challenge :). Trying to get hold of personal weapons. I think they can be found in Dictator system, but will they been regarded as illegal when I get back home????
