Pirate Bribing
« on: January 03, 2016, 05:13:55 PM »

What do you guys think about being able to bribe the pirate station of the said star system to have them wreck havoc with any incoming/ outgoing trade fleets to help you destabilize the market.

I remember in Sins of the Solar empire, factions will continually bid on the faction they want the pirates to harass.

I feel a similar mechanic would be pretty immerse since pirates should do anything for credits :D the larger the sum you "donated" to them, the more fleets they send out to harass trading fleets.

To balance things off the sector will launch an investigation onto why the pirates suddenly got so aggressive and when caught out, you will suffer a big drop in faction relation with the faction you messed with.

I like this in general; I don't think it should just apply to the Pirates, though (but they should be easier than everybody except for, perhaps, Independent Mercenaries).
