I did 6 missions earlier, and in that time frame I was transferred to 17 Enemy Signal Contact instances automatically. That's 34 unwanted loading screens that I had no choice in avoiding. These things are everywhere, if I want to go in one, I will, stop making me. This game has 10x too many loading screens for a MMO as it is, no need in throwing even more on top.
I plot a course, get up to use the restroom, come back to find my ship blown up in some lame DSE. I exit the DSE just to get hit with yet another DSE the very second I enter sector space. This has happened 4 times in a row before, Enter, exit enter exit enter exit. I kid you not. I was so ticked off I shut my PC down for an hour over that crap. I mean seriously, 4 times in a row? Let me use the damn bathroom for crying out loud. Let me go get a bite to eat or a cup of coffee. I do not want to sit on my ars while waiting to get to where I am going, doing nothing but playing Quarterback against all the damn DSEs. Lame and not fun. If I get a mission to go to one, then I will find a Signal Contact cloud (Previously a DSE who rammed some poor chap into a DSE Instance) and I will click on that signal and opt to join. Being forced in is pretty much crap.
I actully agree, if it's to make the game feel more "alive" then please don't
No, but when it comes to forcing the players to join something, then we are heading down a very dangerus path.
PVE players don't like beeing forced to pvp, pvp players don't like to be foced on pve.
Same way we do not like beeing forced on certain "encounters" that we do not like to do at the moment.
If we want to do a deepspace encounter then WE will join one.
so ye i agree with you.
When flying from the omega fleet to b'tran cluster i allways get thrown into a deepspace encounter and it's anoying.
It's only going to be worse with death penalty looming. Now we will get a bunch of loading screens and a death penalty as well. Enough already! At least make it like it was in beta with a 30 second timer. If i am afk i will still get penalised but if I am not afk I can just decline the damn thing. I have been complaining about this since release.
