My first NPC wing encounter...

Recommended Posts

So i'm in a local Anarchy system blasting pirates and smiling at the easy bounties coming in when suddenly 4x reds appear on my sensors and start firing immediately... I'm only in the Asp so choose to get the hell out of there pronto! No real damage done except to my pride ha! I just wasn't expecting it but that's great and what makes the game interesting right?

 

At least it wasn't Thargoids!

I've noted that the AI will generate wings of NPCs belonging to minor factions that you are either unfriendly with or on the negative side of neutral.  I've thoroughly annoyed and pissed off the Brothers of Saktsak with my pirate and bounty hunting in the extractions sites of that system.  So much so that they repeatedly jump into the sites already "red" on my radar and gunning straight for me.  It gets to be quite fun but a little disconcerting, too.  Fortunately, the AI hasn't, yet, generated a wing of Pythons or Anacondas--that would be truly scary.

Checking any wing affiliation of your targets is important.  I've engaged an Anaconda in a CZ before, for instance, and noticed it was 1 of 3 in a wing.  Sure enough, two other ships engage me shortly after I'm tearing into the Anaconda's shields.  I checked the other threats, saw them to be small ships, disengaged from the Anaconda, took those two out, and returned to down the Anaconda.

 

Of course, I've also been focused on a target like that when 2-3 other ships start tearing into my shields and panicked.  So know your limitations!

 

:D
