illogical ***rs
« on: August 08, 2019, 02:38:54 AM »

I find this really strange that after failed expedition faction that send it has a gall to be offended. They send it! To attack my colony! Why they think that it should have just put his hands down and wait for enemy expedition finish destroying eveything they wanted?
Nerve of some people. I.e, all of the people in starsector exept for player.

The player isn't an equal to the major factions and it's fine for them to try and stomp you out. You did something — tried upsetting the balance of powers, and that they cannot allow.
Gameplay-wise, just an excuse to make factions fight the player.

It does seem a bit strange. I think that if a faction is essentially taking the actions of war, they should just declare war (with some warning as when you have a commission) and reset after a few months, just like other factions do.

Until player has multiple size 8 colonies, making the player bigger than the biggest major faction.  With good management and Free Port, it does not take too long before player can breakout and match or exceed the major factions, yet the majors still treat the new greatest superpower like a minor.

Meanwhile, they do nothing to stop pirates and let some of their worlds decivilize.

Stupid stuff like this makes me want to let the pirates decivilize all of core just to make core worlds stop sending expeditions.  (If pirates are too slow killing core, stealth raiding their worlds myself can get the job done.)

You stopped them, destroyed their ships, killed their crew, of course they like you less. If you punch back a bully they will become your mortal enemy from then on.

Hmmmm. I agree, there is no basis for this whatsoever.

Yep. None whatsoever.
