The Daily Grind: How do you plan to play Star Citizen?

    
182

I’m pretty excited to get my hands on some different ships in this week’s Star Citizen free-fly event. I know, I know, I can grind REC and fly the ships any time I want in the game’s alpha Arena Commander module, but A) I don’t like to grind any more, and B) I certainly don’t like to grind in an alpha when I know my progress will be wiped!

I’m excited to try out some new ships because I already have a pretty good idea about the capabilities of my Aurora and my 300i. But I’m not entirely sure what I’ll do in terms of primary gameplay when the persistent universe launches. I’ll probably explore, and trade, and dogfight, and who knows what else because it all sounds interesting.

What about you, MOP readers and Star Citizen fans? How do you plan to play the game at launch? As a fighter? A trader? Something else?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Yes. Bjørn Farmann was a viking king in the county where I grew up, Vestfold. He was killed by his brother, Eirik Blodøks (Eric Bloodaxe). I’ve written a little about my character in the history part of VSR: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/orgs/VSR

That makes sense. It would have to be something along those lines for the exploring.

Oh I remember those reactions.
Was reading the forums at the time.
Have to be careful what you joke about, it may not be that everyone think its funny.

Yea I do understand that but the other problem is I suck at flying haha it’s hard to get your head round that when you go to change direction you keep going untill the forward momentum is equalised very different from battlefield and arma flying haha

PeterEverett For the record, although someone may not be able to afford to buy one prior to launch using real cash now, they may still be able to obtain that ship by earning credits in the game to buy one, or obtaining it via other allowed means (e.g. boarding a ship and taking it over).
You don’t have to buy one now.

U would love to play as a mercenary fps player and avoid flying ships as much as possible. Purely because I can’t afford the expensive ones. I love the game though and it would be really fun to start a mercenary gang and rule the battlefield

I have a character on another account that’ll be a Privateer type, like Han Solo in Star Wars, but Viking is a lawful citizen who doesn’t do aything illegal. Unless it has something to do with sending out mercenaries to revenge himself or a customer. ;)
