I'm Prometheus196206 in the game. I've been a gamer since the 1970s - I was playing Pong and Space Invaders as a teenager. Now I play pretty much exclusively on the Ps4. I've only been playing Elite Dangerous for about a week.
I'm a 56 year old guy, most recently a board wargame designer in real life.
I don't usually play online games - over the years I've had way too many bad experiences with griefers. When I do play online, I usually avoid combat - I'm a lover, not a fighter. Sadly though, there aren't many games that let you play in a non-combat role. Fortunately, I found that Elite has fairly robust options for non-combat play, so I finally took the plunge and bought the game.
This is how non-combat-oriented I am: when I first booted up the game, while taking out my Sidewinder, I got jumped by an NPC pirate, so I defended myself and ended up blowing his ship up. I still feel kinda bad about that. Weird. I should have just tried running away.
I joined Mobius not really for the social play aspect (I'm not much of a joiner, to be honest), but more to support the PvE culture. And it will be nice to know that any members I run into online won't be trying to ruin my game - and they'll know I'm not going to be ruining theirs. It's a good feeling to know that people in multiplayer games can be decent.
