The capital system of the Alliance now hosts Lakon’s administrative hub and offers a 5% discount on its ships. If you thought the holy trinity Alliance/Lakon/Loyal CMDR couldn't get any more based, you were terribly wrong. Get your Lakon ships there if you are a scrub without a Shinrarta Dezhra permit (meaning, having an Elite rank).

It is possible to dodge all Fleet Carrier shots by positioning yourself low enough near the landing pads. Eagle is not even the smallest ship yet it is capable of doing so perfectly.
Futhermore, remote flak shots will be shot down by the FC's defenses as well, without aggroing you either.

I love this game but they really need to do something to break the meta.

The endless engineering bullshit grind.

The FDL meta. I hate the FDL. It's not even a good ship.
>>
>>240681
The way to fix Engineers is to have the players unlock the mods only once. And then be able to buy them from the remote workshop for a REASONABLE/TOKEN sum of credits. Like 100k for a G5 FSD, and 500k for G5 weapons.
Exactly like tech broker's work.
Just remove the constant soul-drenching grind, nothing keeps me from playing this game like having to spend 7 hours gathering mats every time i think up a new build for a ship.
>>
>>240700
Rather than having to fly my slow ass cruisers to the engineer for the experimental effect, maybe a time gate. I send it to them and they send it back.
>>
>>240700
Considering Robigo runs though, that's pretty cheap.
>>
>>240681
It's a good ship and the sexiest in the game. Meta thing are meta for a reason.
>>
>>240725
so idk if you've ever actually used the FDL before, but the cockpit is off-center. so maybe next time test out the ship before you start spreading lies.
>>
>>240754
I know, it annoys me too. It's a right hand drive ship in space, fucking britbongs.
That doesn't mean FDL isn't one of the best combat ships you can possibly get. Because it is. They had to nerf bat it a few times and it's still one of the best.
>>
>>240604
Why? An AX build is not FSD science, the basic concept applies to every ship.
Gauss cannons (remember heat sinks), remote release flak, engineer for absolute hull and shield points over resistances. Done.

Dumb AX questions.

If you use advanced missile racks, do you want oversized or penetrators experimental?

If you use mines (which will do no damage against an interceptor) against an interceptor, will you get anything out of ion disruptor experimental?

For Advanced MCs, do any of the experimentals work on interceptors, like corrosive or incendiary?

Q: Will anti-vehicle weapons be available?
All weapons can be used against ships, however some are far more effective, such as explosive weapons like rocket launchers and grenades.

Q: Will players be equipped with a weapon immediately upon launch?
Just as you will always have a Sidewinder available as a ship, all players will have a side arm to help them in combat

Q: Will there be melee weapons?
Players will be able to attack with melee when close but there are no specific melee weapons.

Q: What kinds of explosives are there?
Only grenades and rocket launcher are planned for launch

Q: Will the aiming reticule always remain on-screen?
The reticule is used to interact with objects as well as for combat, so will always be on-screen. Firing from the hip will still use the same reticule for general direction, but will be less accurate.

Q. Which weapons allow you to look down the sights?
All weapons will have this function, however different scopes are available for each through Engineering.

Q. Could players throw grenades at ships an expect to deal significant damage if it's unshielded?
Yes and we look forward to watching it happen!

Q. What types of weapons will there be?
There's a wide variety of weapons from pistols, rifles and SMGs, to shotguns and rocket launchers. More details will be revealed on these later.

Q: Will players be able to upgrade their weapons with attachments?
You can choose from several attachments for your weapons. However, a modified weapon cannot be reverted, so think carefully. You can own multiple copies of a weapon for different situations, but can only carry a limited number of them at a time, depending on your suit type.

Q: Can you drop ammo/grenades for your friends?
Yes - other players can pick up and use your dropped items.

Are you fucking kidding me.
If a handheld weapon can do noticeable damage to a ship's hull, why do ships have to carry weapons the size of a dump truck?

You never enjoy it, you get hooked on a dream of a great space-sim, the beginning is intoxicating, there is so much to do and learn. But as you go on, the more you realize that intoxicating feeling is just you getting drip-fed your distilled grind-induced suffering. On which you have become dependent on to function.
The only way to enjoy anything ever again after playing Elite, is wiping your save, uninstalling, and losing the passwords to both steam and mail account associated with that mail.
