  • AA Expert Nerf

I understand the history of ending corruption by removing the expert gain from missions.
However, this has created a new problem, the AA idiots. There are some great AA ships out
there. I've seen some of them pick off a "bad guy" when he's dog fighting in an endless
circle and not hit the "good guy". Its an impressive skill to have mastered. However, why
is it that AA is the only way to gain experts fast? There is no shortage of AA ships, so I
see no reason why AA needs to be encouraged. The expert situation should be changed so
that all types of play are equally encouraged, not just one skill.

This has also created a problem for CVs. There is constantly a lack of them due to flames
and stupid requests, but now it is further aggravated by loosing experts so that AA ships
can gain them. AA gain for experts should be set back to normal, and instead Expert gain
for premium should be tripled.

What will tripling expert gain for premium do? Well a number of things. First, it
encourages people to support the game. If me saying that makes you mad, than sit back and
think about it for a minute. Yuno doesn't pay all his wonderful techs and run the servers
for free, it costs money. If people don't pay to play then NF will fail and there will be
no game. Thus, the people who actually are paying money to play should be rewarded.

If you want to get a bunch of experts, then you just pay the stupid $9.99 and then get to
work for a month until you need them again. Really, honestly, if you like the game so much
you are here all the time but you can't be bothered to pitch in $9.99 once or twice a
year, then you really don't care.

Of course, the argument will be "Blah blah people pay to win" well guess what, anyone
could just as easily BUY the experts anyway. What this does is two things: it rewards
people for supporting the game AND it allows expert gain to happen by playing any way you
like, not forcing people to play one simple task. Nerf AA, reward supporting the game.

Yes, I've seen V2 mention that a few times Blazer. I think that something needs to be
done. Maybe not my way, but somehow we need to do something else.

There was another way, which SDE felt to be an exploit and thus removed it (at the same
time removing the ability to get experts in a non gb environment from AAing as well).

Then come up with something else. It doesn't have to cost money. I just think its dumb to
have the only way for people to earn escorts as AA.

There are many problems with asw that make it very far from being equal to aa

Good idea about other ways. Why not Un-nerf SS and add ASW bonuses for even
hitting a SS? make it give just as many experts and whatnot as AA.

ASW =/= AA.

The experts from premium suck. You get more by doing AA. My point is that people are
pushed into doing AA for experts. There should be another way, actually several other
ways. My suggestion is just that, a suggestion. How about nerfing the AA gain and then
buffing the over expert gain instead?

There are experts for premium already I don't see your point
