I am an oldtimer (gaaawwwwddddd 42 and still gaming!!!), but love the game so far.
My stats are:
6/6/4/2/1 (so much for mining)
I bounce around space a lot. Even tried my hand escorting a voy through Serco space at 3/3/2/....(bad idea)
I have been fighting in Deneb since getting combat missions. Love the skirmishes. Doing lots of the secret missions for Itan when they pop up at the stations.
And love pissing off the rats. TBF thought to bottle me up in Latos station. Shook him after 5 jumps. Bobba likes me for some reason. Chased me for 3 jumps.....4th one he anticipated the wormhole and I hit the brakes. ooopppsss....no kill for you!
I may not have good weaps or ships yet. Hell, my combat style may not be the best. But I love mixing it up and doing combat. Will even do my part mining when needed. (I typically play fantasy MMORPG....Perfect World, GuildWars.....always a wizard....always try to be the tank.....so not afraid of the fighting. LOL)
Would love to join and see how much better combat can get.
