    Hold me beer ....

    Geetings fellow TEST council members. Today a legion of pirates have sounded their roars of aggression unto Cry-Astro, demanding payment for safe passage into this precious sector of space.

    I hereby move that we make our presence known in this matter. Does TEST concede this sudden power grab for resources shared throughout the stars by warmongering pirates or do we too, blast our horns of war and pledge to the freedom of Cry-Astro?

    I look forward to all your thoughts and motions my dear patrons.

    We're an org that supports all styles of play, so why not both?

    I'm cool with whatever. I do disagree with the general reasoning behind the blockade, though. Then again, it's not like i actually use cry-astro much, so I don't really notice, y'know?

    That's why it is called CRY-astro...get it!

    Honestly, I understand people not being 100% happy with AC not getting a lot of attention, but they explained it well on the Calling All Dev's video...they simply do not have enough resources at this time, and AC isn't needed as a test bed as much, any more.

    If these people aren't happy and want to get your point across, can they find a more constructive way of letting CIG know? You know, something less...pathetic....?

    Blow the horns and bring freedom to the station... Then take control and charge guests ourselves as the new governing body of Cry-Astro!

    What sort of numbers did the pirates have, and what flag are they flying? Have you seen anything that looks like an official policy statement or where to view it?

    It matters. What if they have beer? Or rum?

    I say patrol the area and help protect TESTies. So if yer approaching Cry Astro, identify as a TESTie with the secret in house code, "All glory to Montoya", and my fighter shall plow the field for you.

    And if the code is not uttered, I'll stand down and munch on popcorn.

    If it's any of that over-processed shite, yes.

    What I understood of this is that very good fighter pilots block the Cry Astro station demanding 10.000 aUEC or more to let people pass... A refuel, restock and repair won't cost 100 aUEC if you didn't used any missiles, torps, ballistics..... right, you must pay 10.100 to get repaired while a reclaim will cost you no credits, only a little patience.

    There is no point in running away, your ship will be busted even more and still no chance to get repaired.

    I say engage the blockers and get some decent dogfighting training. How often do you get the opportunity to train against good fighter pilots lately. There is an option to engage the blockers with a flight of fighters, giving the industrial ships a chance to run for the cry-astro, get repaired and jump out again.

    Remember, you don't have to land on Cry astro to get repaired, just float above the landing pad, speed 0, refuel, restock and repair, then get the hell out.

    Luckily the chat window doesn't work in my Gladius and some other ships when it is powered on, so it will be dogfighting training at Cry Astro.

    i m in if we decide to build up a responce team, i will be able to get my sabre out of the hangar !!

    What they do is blocking the access to the sol repair station in all the PU based on the fact that they priorétise there selfish immediate desire before the greater good of getting the game finished.
    they are trying to block an entire community just to have what they selfishly believe everyone want even though they arnt the majority.
    Thinking about others doesnt mean thinking for them.

    what they do is terrorisme and nothing else

    Since I have a sub optimal pc I would probably have to log of to avoid the lag monster. Was it at least fun for the pirates?

    This is Test Squadron - do what you want.

    I'm going to fly up to them and say:
    "hey I wants CryAstro"
    And they'll says:
    "10,000 uec bellend"
    And I be like:
    "Oh I don't gots 10k I go"

    Then I'll fly off, but then fly right back again and I'll do that 15 times.

    Why? Because no one calls 'BobFace a bellend without consequences.

    And remember: running is funning so fly a fast ship ^_^
