I wouldn't know what the date/time stamp on the event was, since I took care of any empty slabs I had when it was announced as an impending feature, and checked them again when it was actually implemented, instead of waiting 83 days. I'm just going by the Sim News that said the warnings went out "today".
Even using the date of the 21st, it's still not 9-10 days.
“New players don't really have a chance for a good start anymore without joining a faction and working for the man. ”
I really just want to slap people whenever I see this kind of comment. SWC is a faction-based
game. It's intended
that you join a faction. It's also something that has never changed
! How do you think "the man" got to be "the man"? They joined a goddamn faction and worked their arses off!! Your
chances and starting options are the exact same as their
chances and starting options were! Prices are 100 times higher, but salaries are 100 times more! Actually, if you take when I started as a reference point, there were
no salaries! Try earning enough credits to buy your own ship in that scenario!!
