As a returning player who was embarrassingly rusty, these fine folks helped me get back on my feet without making me feel like a total idiot (and they had plenty of opportunity). If I need a mod or ship, someone can usually make it for me at a fair price. If I don’t understand a game mechanic, someone is always willing to explain it. They all speak some form of English (I think ) so I am able to communicate in most situations except for when they start nerding-out over some ship fit or PvP strategy… Its kinda like 2 cats fornicating… Its terrifying and you feel like someone should probably intervene but you also understand that it’s nature’s way so you just sit there, dumbfounded and mouth-breathing until the ritual is over and you have a chance to sort through the gravity of what you just experienced.
And then… you know… space kittens.
