I would be interested. i think it could be done several ways.I haven't brought it up with anyone from Rock Raiders or Yellowjackets yet, but would there be any interest on our end on running a PVP op running as an aggressor squadron? Be beneficial for everyone- we could sharpen our teeth on what a typical juicy target + escorts might look like, and Rock Raiders/Yellowjackets get some good experience on what a pirate raid might entail. No real stakes since everything's getting wiped every other week anyway.
Just spitballing, my new PC parts won't even get here until middle of next week.
1) takeover of the ship on the ground
2) From a set start, work to intercept and force escorts/cargo ships to surrender or at least pay for safe passage (remember, the goal is to make money, not waste resources fighting and blowing stuff up)
3) working together (both groups traveling to one point, then quantuming to another, figure out what the Mantis can and can not do. Figure out how to best use it in game to lock ships down and to ensure it doesn't get destroyed easily.
These could be run by and against skeleton crews and fully crewed ships on both sides.
The haulers win if the cargo ship gets away, the pirates win if they can lock down the cargo ship or have the haulers cry uncle.
