I was happy for few minutes that we got 1x fleet speed option as target, but than i seen Dorado have eco 1x that is going to be pain since GF is not going to upgrade this to 6 or 7. I didn't even notice there is uni with so low eco
But even that is better than 3 or 6 x fleet speed. I am just not sure many people from 1x unis will play for long with those settings unless Dorado get boost to eco speed.
Dorado is a 1x uni, standard DF, standard fuel consumption, etc. Pretty much similar to the old numbered unis. That's why most of the current residents are there because they wanted to play the old way. Changing the settings would probably be detrimental to the people that have been playing there for the last two years since they have had to manage fleet balance, fuel costs, etc. versus that 1x ECO and standard fuel consumption. It might be their one and only saving grace against the mammoth, monster fleets that are coming in droves because honestly no one in Dorado can compete with what's coming in terms of numbers, math never lies. Not to mention those pesky hyperspace 15 & > engines they're bringing. But you, change, adapt, overcome, persevere, and all that jazz...if it comes to a vote then so be it and I'll vote against it and hope others do as well but accept what comes nonetheless...I'm just happy that we managed to secure a 1x feet uni for group 2.
I Really hope group 1 gets a 1x fleet opportunity as well, the folks in Virgo are getting shafted with this decision and I'm honestly surprised that GF didn't make it a target when they did it for Dorado and group 2. Something about that is amiss and just doesn't make sense. And telling them to wait for the next round of updates to see what's coming next is really just a disgrace because it could very well be even worse than this initial announcement. Especially since we cant' trust them at all now, yeah...they changed group 2, but they kept saying initially what's done is done and they can't change it...then they changed it.
Anyways, I look forward to meeting new friends and adversaries in Dorado, and reconnecting with old friends and adversaries (my ears have been ringing a lot the past couple of days my old "friends"). If you want to reach out and say hi when you get there, I'll be that player that drops about 300 ranks, lot. Big, big numbers coming...very humbling indeed.
