It’s pretty clear people want all of this at once - finding a site, doing it and getting loot. But out of these what do you enjoy the most?
For me it depends if it’s combat or hacking. I enjoy both the mini game and loot. But in k-space combat, I just want to be done with it ASAP because it takes multiple sites to get worthy loot and killing everything other than triggers and faction spawns is pretty much meaningless. Same reason I wanted to try going back to w-space for consistent rewards. C2s because I want to start it cheap and I haven’t been to w-space in years.
To be honest the Agency 3.0 thread surprised me. I’m the kind who wants to do sites more than just finding them but people there seemed to like finding sites more than anything. Frankly I saw that as ■■■■■■■■ and people defending existence of their favorite spots for multiple sites in a system while disguising that as exploration. The irony of people defending what’s exploration supposed to be while relying on something completely opposite, which was threatened to be exposed to everyone with the new Agency.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t need Agency for that. After using it I even find it dysfunctional, because of lack of updating what can be seen in real time. It shows sites that are no longer there, and the ones I scan aren’t saved into Agency systems’ signature lists. At the same time side pocket systems work the same as before in region I explore in.
I wouldn’t even be making this thread if not for what happened today. I made a fit for testing in C2 wormholes I can find in HS. I went to SISI and yesterday I could find few wormholes. Today I couldn’t even get 1 for 14 systems straight. I was multitasking at my PC at the same time and in the end I ran out of time and had to log off from SISI. It made me angry and wonder if it’s something SISI specific.
But also it made me wonder if people really enjoy gameplay like this, it made me remember dev Agency thread.
