I’m a noobie.
So I am gradually building up my XP by various means.
Trading, delivering cargo and passages. Some engagements. Plenty of improvement required. Not of course helped by the low ranking of ship I can at present use in combat. But I am happy to stand and fight on occasions. Even if it’s for a short time. If I start to get to shot up, I will try to run. But I still get XP points for fighting.
I have been in Port. Looking to come out and deliver two lots of cargo. Two lots of passengers.
So I always click on leave Port. But before set sails. I have a good look round to see no gankers hanging around.
If so, why would I look to leave the Port. Common sense says to wait ! Sorry if gankers don’t like this.
I can assure them. Once I have more XP, larger frigate I will be happy to engage them. Bring it on !
Sometimes, I will also check out an area around the Port before leaving by using a cutter. Leave the safety of the Port knowing I will only lose a cutter if enemies around.
Surly this is all part of NA.
If your a big boy I would expect you to use your strengths. I’m not at that stage yet so have to use my wits to raise to a higher level.
I personally have no problem with gankers. It’s an open world after all. Made of up all sorts of people. At the moment I am, even if I say so myself becoming good at sailing, using my wits and the wind direction to get to where I want to go and to survive.
I’m sure this will come in useful as I move up the ranks.
Those playing NA have the own preference on how and what they do for enjoyment. See nothing wrong with that.
Cheers all 🍻
