I don’t see the usual application website stuff for most of the NA factions so I figured I’d hang it all out and see who bites.
I’ve tried contacting some people directly with no luck.
At first I created my own 1 person faction and tried to get alliances with everyone but that seems…counterproductive.
I have since left it prepping for joining one for real.
What I want:
Keep in mind, I’m very new so some of my wants may be unreasonable or incompatible, I don’t know.
I want to play the role, I want to fly escorts for traders, fight pirates etc.
I do NOT want to sit on my hands discussing things and never actually doing anything. (other then getting ready its not like I’m going to take my only CV into combat)
I do NOT want drama/infighting.
I’m only looking for a rank/file position I’m not looking to move into leading anything or diplo or any of that stuff.
I would like a GATO faction if possible because:
a) Fell in love with the city of Auxilio on starter, its what made me think ya know it might be worth playing this empyrion thing for more then a day or two. I want to be a part of the group responsible for that.
b) From what I understand they ‘rule’ Uranus (heh) and I realize I would not be able to live there but that’s fine I can live in my cv in orbit. But to be able to place down auto miners, mine etc would be divine. Due to the wipe I was forced to abandon the starter region before I was what I would consider ‘ready’.
I currently just have a CV (t2 stock that I’ve been modifying) and a small ship (t5 stock I’ve been modifying).
I’ve already been to Uranus, explored keeping clear of bases and everything was fine till I tried to leave and I could not get into orbit, someone suggested going to the wall and going up so I did that. I went to the wall, went up things went wacky and I got shot down hard. I did respawn 3-4 times trying to get to what’s left of my small ship. Told it to respawn at clone and it spawned at random place on planet, tried to get to remains of small ship from other side, but the turrets saw me again. So if someone’s seeing something in the logs that looks like I was ‘attacking’, I was not, not 1 shot was fired back.
The base I encountered was in the far north near the wall and looked like a big mace tower.
How do you tell who to shoot. On/in Uranus I realize that the only threat is unallied guardians but once your out in the world, how do you tell the ship you encountered is pirate or trader… (i.e. to be be fought, or to be helped)
I’m starting to think what I really should have done is gone trader and just flown cap for them from within…from the stuff I’m reading there is not much interaction between guardians and traders. However, I don’t want to start over now.
