Vsec aggro

Why am I, after 4+ years of playing this game, still losing cargo fleets to VSEC aggression? Don't you think this should be a switch off setting by now? Losing helpless, weaponless cargo fleets to aggressive, overpowered vsec fleets for no reason? That's wasteful. And a very bad idea coming from people who are trying to make a living and pay employees. Get a clue.

    My suggestion to that issue is to get Cargo fleets that are BELOW LEVEL 25 or ABOVE LEVEL 70.

    You should very well know by now the power of fleet aggression.

    talons are great for unarmed cargo fleets

    After 4+ years in game you still use blank hulls as cargo transport?
    Do you still have a resource problem?
    My suggestion is to use mk6 fleets to transport as more as posible with one fleet, not spam 4-5 lvl25 fleets.

    My cargo fleets carry 65 mil a piece, and yeah I still run out of res when I build these new ships, they're ridiculously expensive in terms of res. All my cargo ships have as many cargo holds as they can fit, and many of them are elite, but they're not built to fight fookin vsec batsards. There ought to be a way to turn off aggro after a certain point. It's stupid they're still out there killing cargo fleets.

    After 4+ years you should have at least known by now where Vsec Spawn from and which pathways they use to exit out of sector. I have the exact same cargo fleet as yourself but not mk elite, it can hold 65mil+ (Pegasus with Xeno Armour Hold for anyone curious), but i too include my flagship in there sometimes so its easier to jump to free res in sector. I've never been hit by agro...why...because i don't park my fleets around anything harm's way.

    It's honestly not hard to park your fleet out of the pathway line vsec follows, which is just simply avoiding when vsec go from Sector wormhole A to Sector wormhole B. Since you have Elites, it shouldn't be hard to run away since you have bonus move speed on MK6 ships in sector. If your still having issues leaving your fleets parked in sector, just bring a escort fleet, either a escort to easily kill vsec or a free disposable one with little to no repair time. GLHF!
