Appropriate forum to report greifers

Postby pboggio » Tue Jan 14, 2020 5:14 am

Is there a dedicated sub forum to report griefers? a group of 4 ganked me around 10 PM CST Jan 13 2020 in Hyades Sector DB-X d1-112, 2 ring A, in a painite hot spot. Was panicking too much to pay attention to what was going on right when I got jumped, but was able to get this screen shot after the fact.

Names listed are:
Callzter
Richard fluiraniz m.
Dubtack
eggman sovereign
See screen shot here:

A search of the forums showed that "eggman sovereign" was accepted to the group Dec 15 https://elitepve.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8393&p=106097&hilit=eggman+sovereign#p106097 but I don't see anything about the other 3.

If there is a better place to post this please let me know.

Looks like I owe some commanders a personal apology.
Callzter, Richard fluiraniz m., Dubtack, And eggman sovereign. I hope you can forgive me for the false accusation. If I could I would buy you a beer. Or a coffee if that's your thing.

I found my logs and reviewed them.
While those above named commanders were in the area it was NPCs that attached my ship. The amount of visible log I could scroll though in the in game chat history apparently did not include the NPC text threatening me.

I've never been targeted by more than one single pirate at a time. But here I got swarmed by 4 at once. I assumed that it being such a large group that was attacking me that it had to be players and not NPC's . But the proof of my mistake is right there in my logs.
{ "timestamp":"2020-01-14T04:25:24Z", "event":"ShipTargeted", "TargetLocked":true, "Ship":"vulture", "ScanStage":3, "PilotName":"$npc_name_decorate:#name=Andrew Penrose;"
{ "timestamp":"2020-01-14T04:25:27Z", "event":"ShipTargeted", "TargetLocked":true, "Ship":"asp_scout", "Ship_Localised":"Asp Scout", "ScanStage":3, "PilotName":"$npc_name_decorate:#name=RayRay;"
{ "timestamp":"2020-01-14T04:25:29Z", "event":"ShipTargeted", "TargetLocked":true, "Ship":"asp_scout", "Ship_Localised":"Asp Scout", "ScanStage":3, "PilotName":"$npc_name_decorate:#name=Zinn;"
{ "timestamp":"2020-01-14T04:25:29Z", "event":"ShipTargeted", "TargetLocked":true, "Ship":"asp_scout", "Ship_Localised":"Asp Scout", "ScanStage":3, "PilotName":"$npc_name_decorate:#name=Futzi Voldemort;"

I have egg on my face. BUT It is a relief to know I was wrong when I thought Mobius players had done it.

Glad you got to the bottom of it. A wing of NPC's can take down a non-combat ship pretty darn quickly.

The usual location for this folder will be here:

C:\Users\%userprofile%\Saved Games\Frontier Developments\Elite Dangerous

There will be a text file for each gaming session. It'll have details with ship used, systems traveled to, cargo carried, and interactions with other ships. There's a lot of code clutter in the file, but you can usually extract the data you want like the OP did here.

Also, as for process, you email the admin at admin@elitepve.com which does prevent naming and shaming and resultant backpedaling.

We'll know for next time :)
