Welcome CMDR! Thank you for this information! Looks like the new Elite Dangerous update will be a lot of fun, especially with the new Squadrons system. I'm currently looking for a reason to come back to the game, as the constant fighting for The Bubble Collective became pretty boring. The backing behind Union of Lidpar Green Party was too strong, so we were never able to make a breakthrough in Lidpar (even with the help of a couple of Pranav Antal's people). What is your CMDR name? I am CMDR Zakara, representative of The Bubble Collective. I'm always open to an alliance that would help us gain the main port in Lidpar (Carlisle Station). Some shameless promotion for The Bubble Collective: Greetings, CMDR Zakara
I think the other player group has stopped pushing The Union of Lidpar Green Party, as I've seen it randomly go down by a lot when The Bubble Collective was in a Boom and they were not, without (as far as I know) anyone coming online just to boost our faction. Could just be a coincidence though, because they're back up to 75% influence.
I have received an email to be able to reserve a squadron name for when the new update comes out. The Bubble Collective hasn't been active for a while now, and I myself haven't played anymore either after a failed attempt at gaining control in Lidpar. I will pick the game up again now that I've gotten a headtracking hat and a joystick, so I've just put in The Bubble Collective for it to be reserved as a squadron name. I had to provide three possible ID's (in case one is taken), so I chose TBCL (The Bubble Collective of Lidpar), TBCC (The Bubble Collective Company) and TBCS (The Bubble Collective Squadron). In case anyone would like to join, just send me a message and I will invite you whenever the update comes out. Greetings, CMDR Zakara
I recently had a week's vacation, where I took the time to do an hour or two a day of The Bubble Collective missions. This pushed the faction up by more than 10%, which is a great thing. But I took two days off as an experiment, and it made me realize I am the only one doing anything for The Bubble Collective. We lost 5%, while Union of Lidpar Green Party jumped up by 10%. So this is a wake-up call for anyone in this club: CONTRIBUTE OR BE PURGED. These guidelines apply to be a contributor: ONLY do missions for The Bubble Collective, unless specified otherwise. MAXIMIZE mission contribution towards influence (e.g. only do missions that give a minimum of Medium influence increase) DO NOT turn in exploration data at any station in Lidpar. This will only benefit the other factions. DO NOT turn in bounties that were issues by any faction other than The Bubble Collective. Do not come with the argument that the missions don't pay good credits. You can easily make around 5 million cr in 2 hours or less if you are allied with The Bubble Collective. Some missions to look out for: PASSENGER MISSIONS: These give a great amount of credits in a small time frame. The best passenger missions are the tourist, aid worker, business person, ... transport missions, which give large influence increase and credits. But the biggest advantage to those, is that you can stack them. PLANETARY SCAN JOB: Basically tech support in space. Got to a planet, use your SRV to scan a data point, and fly back to Carlisle Station. COMBAT MISSION: Especially the "Massacre the <insert faction> pirates" missions. They give great rewards, and have an added bonus that you can bring in bounties (these bounties have to be brought into a station of the mission's system usually). They are fun if you are into combat. The most important thing, however, is that you think efficient. An example: There are 3 missions available, one giving a large influence increase with a reward of 2m cr, where you have to drop off someone/something on a planet's surface, and the two others that give only 200k cr each (large influence increase), but are stackable and you don't have to go onto a planet's surface. Which mission(s) do you pick? Yes, the two others. They save you time (don't have to land on a planet) and are stackable, so you don't have to go back to Carlisle Station every time you finish one mission. I admit that I am not always as efficient, so that I can have a bit of fun too, but the majority of my time is geared towards efficiency. In the long run you will benefit from this efficiency.
