Still changing to free every 20 to 60 seconds....

Nice prioritization cryptic.

I guess most people that use non-free camp have probably already rage quit by now.

We do have a fix for this, it just didn't make it in time for this week's patch. Hopefully you'll see the fix sometime in the near future. My apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime.

The tailor bugs suck. But how is that more important than this?

Because when I'm zoomed out to see as much of the battlefield as possible, in an escort, PVPing, it's hard to tell which way I'm facing if I turn.

Thanks for the reply. This bug has been driving me (and I am sure many others) crazy - as I am sure you can imagine.

This... and I prefer to control my ship with the keyboard similar to other space flight games.

the blue glowy parts are in the back and the big round part is up front.

the screen does plenty of moving in the direction your going, i really don't see how you could get disoriented. the screen pivoting with your every move is terrible, stare at that long enough and id get motion sickness.

Actually I found that flying an Escort is a very different experience to a Cruiser. I use Free Camera on my cruiser, because of its size and wide firing arcs of the beam arrays. Just slide in sideways and lazily unload.

Flying an escort in Chase mode closer up makes it easier to line up your targets with a narrow Cannon firing arc. It's very easy to overshoot your target in free camera mode. Also, zoomed all the way out I can't see my ship, let alone the direction its facing. One of the downsides of the Bug Ship.
