After a year out of game while settling in from retirement and turning 70, I jumped back in a few weeks ago. Just bought a Hauler and trying slowly moving from GD 219 to Mobius HQ. Trading along the way and upgrading the ship.

Me.....I just done it as a break from normal and because I could.......A distraction one might say.....

Being in a wing and working together made it even easier.......

You start worrying about any rank in either form......Deadly....Elite etc it becomes a grind.........

I just do what I wanna do and if shit happens it does.......


Well, i have been wanting to get a cutter for quite a while for my cargo runs, but... i tend to do like you do, play the game at my pace, and let things happen.. thing is, they don't happen.
After 2 years, i was only squire in the empire, and only because i did grind one day for the Courrier. The rank increases in a stupidly slow way if you don't grind. In real time it would have taken me about 5 or 6 years to get that cutter... doesn't help that i do not dwell in imperial space it's true..

Anyway, grinding, and seeing the ranks jump like pop corn on a frying pan was pretty exciting in itself, mostly after having done the proper grind for the corvette... (this particular grind made me sell it because now that ship is attached to horrible gaming memories.. worst than my two months in WOW.. yes...) :mrgreen:

You know, I just realized that Type-9 got one extra 8-size slot after Beyond update and can now fit 788 (752 with DC and shields) tons of cargo for just below 103 MCr. In case you are wanting "something with big cargo space", not "The Cutter".

Well i have the cutter now ^^

But i have to try the new T9. What bugged me mostly was more its stupidly short jump range, but they also shaved a few tons off its hull mass in the update, so that remains to be tested for me.

Finished my trip to Sagittarius A* and back today. Took a detour to Colonia and picked up a few rare goods on my way back. Made a few reckless jumps, found a lot of great planets for mining and even saw an odd crash. Ain't seen that before.
