Welcome to SL 2019. Combat has been reduced to smaller dogfights until either nation launches a BC and you run before it arrives. This is why I have this proposition: remove combat.
-Putting weapons on ships slows down our ships, therefore slowing down our time to do trade routes. If we don’t have combat, we can all go faster on our trade routes and get more done, and everyone will be happy.
-No more resources needed to be put into wiring around the base for shields and such, as bases will be completely safe! No more risk of getting attacked.
-More fun for everyone! A peaceful Star Legacy is more beneficial to everyone. We can all do our trade routes with smiles on our faces, without a need to worry about evil pirates interrupting us (even though we can easily outrun them anyways).
-Really, all we need on SL is just the ability to do trade runs over and over. Combat is useless and messy, and very time consuming! Let’s all just be friends and be peaceful, allowing for more progress to be made.
-Happier players! Most people are colonists anyways so it won’t affect the overall population much.
-Toxic pirates will leave! Everyone knows all pirates are toxic salty people who don’t contribute to the community. We don’t want them as a part of SL.
-Trade routes are faster with faster ships, as a lack of weapon blocks will speed us up!
-Bases are cheaper and easier to build without shields and such! No worry of being attacked is good for everyone!
-Less resources need to be dedicated to combat! Combat is messy, boring, and time consuming, not to mention a waste of our valuable currency obtained by trading!
If you can’t tell, this post is dripping with sarcasm. However, it does send a warning: without combat, SL could become stale and outdistanced by competitors. Please make combat slightly more reasonable and doable!
