I am CMDR ScruffyWolf and have been playing Elite Dangerous for about 2 years, on and off. I didn't even know there was a group like this out there until I read an article on Eurogamer about the "Mobius Incident". I'm so sorry that happened to you guys.
Until recently, I've been playing purely on solo play. I was always curious about open play, but a little intimidated. I decided to bite the bullet and play in open. At first it seemed just like solo, with the occasional player popping onto my radar, until I was interdicted and shot down by another player. No reason was given. I assumed it was because I'm with the Empire, but really don't know. It really irritated me.
I'm 51 years old, and have never liked pvp. I understand it, I just don't like it. In other games, I usually play a healer because that's my nature.
I live in America, Texas, to be a little more precise. Don't let that color your opinion of me. I really am a nice guy. Hope to see you guys in game.
