Yesterday i have tried this game . I started it with the tutorial option , finished the tutorial and noticed a lot of other pilots like me outside the station . First thought that crossed my mind was to destroy one of them . I pick up one , set my 1000 m orbit and then… and then the guns won’t fire . I ask in help channel , someone tells me it could be the safety system and proceeds to explain how to disable it. So i disable and then , my ship explodes . They tell me about space police and so , this is crap , honestly , space police ?!?
So then i ask , how to avoid space police and receive 100 different answers . In the end i set my route to a system that some player tells me i can fight others . I go there , the amount of gates i have to take , mind blowing , felt like falling asleep on my computer .
So i finally arrive , the system named Tama. I sit at a gate and see this big ship , i think it was called Tayra or something , i active me afterburner , get in range , orbit 1000 m , shoot , then surprise … dead again !
I ask why i was destroyed , there wasn’t supposed to be police there , it appears it was some kind of gate cannon . I do as someone told me , warp to asteroid belts , warp to the sun , no one … Some people in local chat typing “gf” , most of them blink as yellow .
In the end i ask in local for a combatant to come and fight me at the sun . Someone came there , i try to catch his ship , he moves too fast . I close in the range , get to shoot him once , then my ship explodes , that was so fast .
I think i need a better ship for this and better planning / tactics ?
What i ask is , what ship can i use as a new player that is affordable and will give me a chance to destroy others ? Meanwhile i pursue this military basic career and looking forward for the advanced one, but these involve npc , i want to destroy players not npc .
Also , is there an arena where we can fight and where you can get there fast ? moving around in this game takes ages.
Thank you !
