Depends on the time on Saturday. I am only free in the afternoons (EST, which is -5 GMT) on Saturdays.

If we do this, I suggest we have Mikouen and RAL protect the rest of us. I, after all, fly a petty Eagle :p

I'm horrible at combat so that's probably not a good idea.

I haven't even tried the combat since the AI update recently that made the AI better.

Didn't the AI only get better because the game accidentally allowed them to upgrade ships that shouldn't be upgradable?

That was a bug.

They have gotten better in general though. Better PIP management, better reactions (fly away to let shields recharge instead of just setting there like idiots), etc...

The AI is supposedly a lot harder to beat now and that's after they fixed the bug with engineer weapons.

The AI ships just have outright superior stats, and no amount of bullshit can cover for that.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Ended up in a low-intensity combat zone in EQ Pegasi. Made a beeline for the battle. Ended up being targeted by a Python. Dodged the first few bursts, targeted the power plant, and cut right through the shields.

Then it got me with the nose-mounted plasma accelerator. Shields gone, canopy damaged, 89% hull integrity. More shot trading, knocked about 19% off the power plant, lost shields a second time and got knocked down to 53% integrity with the canopy outright destroyed.

Started to burn out. Somehow the bloody thing kept pace with me, peppering me with turret shots.

Slipped into supercruise (despite the nearby planet's gravity well) without much extra damage - 3% integrity and my chaff launcher down to 70%-ish, FSD down to 60%-ish, other subsystems in the 80%-90% range.

Hobbled to Merbold Ring within two minutes, before emergency oxygen ran low.

Faced with a truly whopping repair bill of..... 795 credits.
