Those who roll from sector to sector see it all the time. Hit a sector and ask, just for chuckles, across the public comms what the sector rules are. Low and behold, a few seconds later here come dozens of response:
No hit sector
We don't hit insector
This is a no hit sector
If you want to hit bases go out of sector
blah blah blah
Then the screams start as the person who rolled in starts rolling bases breakin' the rules they just asked about. Usually, they go after the biggest and the smallest they can find just to make the point of what they can do and no one is safe.
So the question is posed: Do no hit sectors really exist?
Well, I venture to say they don't. There is no such sector, perhaps a few no-hit players, but the existence of a sector that does not have people hitting within it is a myth that those who live in these alleged sectors like to think exists. How you ask?
Well, when that player rolls in and starts hitting others, what is the first thing the sector does, sometimes effectively, sometimes not so effectively? They roll fleets to try and shut them down. Dock hits, sniping fleets, attempting to hit the base of the offender. All of these within the confines of the sector, within it's borders. So, if it is a no hit sector and someone shows up and starts hitting bases and that players base is within the sector then a true no-hit sector will not attack them. After all, it is a no-hit sector isn't it?
