Left the game and came back and the station let me dock. *shrug*

Yes, I was always with 7km of the station and I have now been refused at at least half a dozen stations in half a dozen systems. I would say it was a faction thing, except I did one mission which was a + neutral faction. Either I'm missing something or was really unlucky in my start location or I don't know what...

Pretty bummed at the moment. Doubled my money on a trade, and now I'm nearly out of fuel with really no where to go.

Vall, don't worry about it. I'm bringing the average down. First trading attempt, buy some cheap stuff -- go to 4 stations in two systems, they refuse me docking. Back where I started with not much idea where to go.

Wow, okay. Props to everyone who even has the basics down in this game. Went ahead and got it (along with a Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS) and about 90 minutes in I'm still pretty shaky on docking in the training...

I'll settle for one with less stress than 2014 had, which for me was fairly high.

Another silly question: Ships with "crews" of more than one, how does that work? Other positions are run by NPCs I take it? Do you have to recruit them or something, or they just kind of come with the ship?

Well, that's showing empty with initial build out. What you really want to know is fully loaded with best engine that fits in the ship, right? Or at least, fully loaded -- how far with each engine class.

I wish I had a brain for languages, but I simply don't. Tried in high school and college and failed miserably both times. It would be cool to able speak almost any other language...

Semi-random question: Can you trade effectively in solo mode? If you have built yourself up to a mid-level cargo vessel are you still in danger of being jumped by computer controlled pirates while travelling between systems?

That's the kind of thing that's keeping me from picking this up, I can just see myself spending hundreds of hours building to something only to find I'm at a deadend.

- The Javelin destroyer sale at $2500 per ship. There were four lots of 50 ships each to give people in different timezones a chance to get one. Each lot sold out in seconds, of course, so that was $2500 x 200 = $500K alone.
Okay, I played WoW for 6.5 years and that cost me over $1,000 in subscription fees, plus the collector's versions I bought, plus I spent more doing races changes and some server moves. Yet, even I think $2,500 for a virtual ship is crazy.

Yo Creston, remember when you wanted to pickup TNG on blu for cheap? Amazon just dropped them to $31.99 a set, with season 1 being $20.
Season 1 deserves to be at a discount it sucked so badly. Two is only slightly better, season 3 is where the series finally got it's legs. I own TOS and DS9 on DVD, but am only marginally attracted to this. If they re-master DS9 -- I'll buy that.

And why is this never discussed: What company WANTS to piss off their customers?
You'd think none, but if you worked with telcos on a regular basis you know it wasn't the case. Comcast is pretty good at it too, but they are a special case -- legal monopoly.

Answered my own question, logged into battlenet and my account is already upgraded to include MoP. I might have to try this...

Man, just the idea of a Core Hound mount is almost enough to make me pick this up again after three years. I'll think about it...
