Tried to reply to a comment on Reddit, but it was locked. Can’t let all this phone tapping go to waste
There is no huge penalty for death. If you’re having trouble funding rebuys, then I don’t know what in the world you’re doing. Credits are astonishingly easy to come by in this game.
It’s not about the credits, it’s about the time. Hours spent jumping and scanning, in this case.
That said, I think this is a game where you will have a really hard time getting anywhere without interacting with “the community” in some form, be it internet research, social media, or just talking with friends. Participation in DW2 required awareness of the community, and indeed the whole point of it is that it’s a group activity.
So when the ganker group publicly announces that they’ll be doing exactly what they’re doing, I have some difficulty believing that someone who attends this trip, and chooses to do it in Open, isn’t making a conscious choice about the risk.
Private group really isn’t that hard to figure out, and especially shouldn’t be hard for someone who already went to the trouble of registering for the trip and following its announcements. And I’m not saying they shouldn’t be able or allowed to play in Open. I’m saying if they quit the game over what happened in Open, I think that clearly illustrates they made the wrong choice of mode, and they should have known better, and known themselves better.
