Ban Reason: Overall, as a pirate your should be focusing on looting, not sabotaging station systems to “cause panic” as a distraction. You could use your men and physically attack a place as a distraction, but you should not set up explosions to happen when you leave. This note was a result of a player report: Unknown Pirate Captain player report
I know this has already been discussed in the thread, but I genuinely believe this note should not exist - it implies that I just went into the station with the goal of sabotaging.
That is not the case - i was literally just moving around space to protect our ship which was being constantly assaulted by enemies getting brought right back up after we kill them (since we never permanently killed)
On my way, I saw the injector outlet in space of the sm. I dismantled that, going “yar har break shit cuz it’s on me way matey” then proceeded to go back to me ship.
The note implies I went into the sm room which i never did. I never entered engineering once. This was not a sabotage where i setup air alarms precisely, and carefully changed values on piping.
"you could use your men and physically attack a place as a distraction, "
My men were indeed going either protecting the ship or going inside to cause distractions and steal more lootz. And I was literally doing the exact same thing written to be “better” than “sabotaging”. The sm started beeping and yelling and multiple people on coms got scared and rushed to not get close to pirates again, all resulting from me unwrenching three pipes that were in my way in space.
That is the single action of sabotage I have done that round. I unwrenched three pipes and proceeded to go back to defending the ship and fighting security while my mate went to gather loot from lathes/silo since sec was distracted.
I feel this is just overblown because it’s the SM - it’s no different from a pirate going around breaking a few windows while travelling through space because “yar har vent them air so they can’t breathe, teach ya a lesson for not paying up”.
My focus was on ensuring max looting, and, that worked - within two minutes of our landing, we completed our goal, and ended the round with a shitload of munz. We didn’t end it at 0 credits, station half blown up and useless. It was super minor and only served to beep boop at the crew, and it was more than efficient with minimal damage for what amounts to three pipes unwrenched while travelling through space, as an afterthought.
I didn’t even patrol the area to ensure it’d blow up, too. the golem i killed was because i was chasing around a sec member in space & on my way back he happened to be there. If it had been fixed, i’d not have x4’d the sm to enter and kill whoever was trying to fix.
