@doctor-dissaray You're still missing the point...I'm not looking for tips on how to survive against other players.
My information wasn't specifically for YOU, hence why I never directly referenced YOU. So please refrain from making this about YOU. This is about the SoT community as a whole. Also, as I said at the conclusion of my post (you may have missed it,) I was not sure what I was even trying to debate, but clearly you want this to become an argument instead. Be constructive, not destructive.
I actually do like open PVP, but I'd also like to keep it fair and at the moment it's not.
I never said that I don't appreciate the PvP aspects of the game, but seeing as how I Rare-ly (trying to be punny here) engage other ships in battle, I don't see this "unfairness." Typically I don't ask my assailants what system they are on, so it's impossible to know.
I've never chalked up my loses to "Oh, they must be on PC!" and my victories never come with a "They had to be on Xbox!"
How can I compare a game that is about combat to SoT? SoT can be just as much about combat as halo. A lot of players actually play for the combat (a different type of combat than halo, but still a combat).
I understand that scalawags play this game just to engage in battles. From the trailers for the game, I too was completely enamored with the idea of participating in one. Yet still if you cannot see the difference between a game about eliminating enemy forces to capture bases, versus a game about gathering treasure for gold and reputation with a PvP aspect of hunting ships, than I cannot help you. Still apples and oranges to me, although others may share your sentiments. Perhaps time will change my perception on this. As it currently stands, there are no worthy rewards in-game for PvP, except for sweet sweet satisfaction. (THIS IS NOT CONSIDERING IF THEY HAVE LOOT, KEEP THAT IN MIND)
The fact that creating safe zones would destroy the integrity of the game, further implies that it is a PVP game at heart. There is no question about it.
This is a hard point to argue, truly. I feel that others are prone to attack someone approaching a outpost from the belief that they possess loot, thus making PvP a prevalent thing, and your statement true. I must contemplate further before I issue my rebuttal. You too should consider such a thing, as your post comes off as extremely hostile and unwilling to see another's POV. I imagine you will put this comment off as me trying to undermine you, in which case you will be wrong. Lighten up.
No matter what excuses you make
I have made no excuses, please do not put words in my mouth.
Anytime I have lost/been defeated, it was because I sucked at that moment. Anytime I have won/achieved something, it was because I made the right choices at that moment. Nothing more.
no matter what's your opinion on how the game should be played, forced cross-play still makes it unfair to many.
Are we not all here for our opinions to be heard? Is your opinion somehow greater than my own, or someone else's?
I have also never stated that it ISN'T unfair, but I personally have yet to truly see this "unfairness."
I still don't understand why would you fight so badly to not allow an OPTION to turn off cross-play for those who want a level playing field?
Again, please don't put words in my mouth. I never said whether I am for or against the "OPTION" to enable/disable, nor have I said whether I flat out support or disagree with the idea of cross-platform to begin with.
Please stop telling people how they should play and just let them enjoy a console gaming experience how they're used to.
Again... words in my mouth I never said. I never told anyone how to play. I advised people how I play, and whether or not that works for others, I would not know. I know what works for me, and I have adapted.
From the very first interviews, Rare was letting us know how it's their priority to make it fair to everyone. It's far from that. We were not informed about the forced-cross play.
To this, I would apologize, but it is not my place to do so. This is the 1st cross-platform game I have ever played and I love it. I understand where you are coming from, wanting the option to simply disable cross-platform. I agree that this would be a nice feature, but sadly, it is a feature that does not currently exist in SoT. Time will tell if this will change or not, but as others have said; there is a lot of time/money/effort needed for such a change.
Enjoy your cross-play and let others enjoy fair play. And yea, I play SoT on PC ( do I need to prove it?) but I see cross-play for what it is.
I will, thanks! And no you don't need to prove it, unless you have a strong need for validation. I'm not here trying to argue or berate you.
The forum is a place for us to collectively work together as a whole, to make things better.
You can hate, I will appreciate.
