My dear Star Citizen friends,

As it is recently known there will be mining ships in game and trade ships and what not. Additionally there will be pirates who will stall and stop warp jumps to raid and attack ships. How will we as an organization go about stopping this?

I plan to run escort ops for fleet members and other orgs and individuals. I currently own quite a bit of firepower in a Polaris, eight Hammerhead and a wide variety of fighters and bombers. With Imperium being such a large org, it shouldn't be too hard to find a team to run with. This would make great practice and build cohesion as the game progresses.

Theoretically speaking...

1) You would generally have a military escort if going outside of safe space

2) Use safeguarded trade routes 

3) avoid areas known for pirate activities, or just trade in safe space.

as far as stopping piracy, that is an impossible task that no org should undertake.

Well we are anti pirate - why would you not  try to stop pirates operating in your zone . why would we would runaway...  NA
This isn't Imperium only discussion, so really it is asked (and should be answered) only from a general gameplay point of view.

Even pirates will have to deal with interdiction from pirates. While I have my own ideas on how to avoid this, I'll save them for official channels.

Anti-pirate means we do not take part in Piracy.  

All actions in the verse have a cost associated with them, large or small.

Ive shown SC to a pile of people. The youngins that are interested ALL want to be pirates.

Heck, there is even a pirate school video on you tube.

Just like in EvE, ED, Jumpgate, and ever other Open sandbox sim, We the hard working folks WILL be in the minority.

 

To me, "anti-pirate" means hunting those scurvious dogs down, and recycling their ships, while they are still in them.

:)  Let me know how you like those pirate traps.   You seem to imagine a verse where dumb pie rats sit unsuspectingly in their ships waiting for justice to be wrought upon them.

Like anything else, finding pirates will require intel gathering. A lot of intel gathering. Preferably before they find you first.

Camping rats were our specialty in EvE. Yup they are that dumb. My two main ships were the manticore, for whoop donkey, and the buzzard for snooping about and finding them dumb suckers

One of the main reasons for me picking 315p. See them, before they see you. Just need the stealth paint job off of the Ghost

Although it's true that you cannot eradicate pirates completely you absolutely can surpress their activities and scare them away. Not just out of your current territory but beyond of that. You don't need to annex these scumholes. You just need to bomb them out and destroy all their ship and equipment.

Just patrolling inside of your area of influence is like waiting to be kicked. Ofc that costs money - like all military operations and military ships, crews and equipment. However, security is the basis of all profitable civil operations. No security means no civil operations at all.

Plus some pirate hunting is a good training for a couple of professions every larger unit/guild should deploy. Because there're much more threats out there than just a couple of pirates.

Ok to clarify only speaking for myself not the org view:  (also mostly just theory)

1) Hunting pirates may sound noble....but where is the profit/cost offset?  Sounds blunt I know, but as any "theoretical" anti-pirate organization, why would I take on the costs of eradicating pirates, if there is no profit to be made or at least good will and offsetting costs?  I mean I am making enemies with a group, and potential friends of that group, that I don't necessarily need to be enemies with.

2) Assuming pirates will be dumb, you have done them a lot of favors.  Never underestimate any opponent, these are not actual pirates with no education or reasoning ability but people much like you and I on the other side.  If you can "out think", they can too.

3) Anti Pirate means we do not take part in pirate activities nor do we condone them in our ranks.  It does not dictate an  org's actions in every scenario because "Pirate"!!

4)  It is much smarter to patrol controllable trade routes, which when paid for by individuals, they may use them.  We secure them, this is a much smaller area than "all of space" or "anywhere in a sector".

  It also allows pirate groups an option.  If they want to take on the large org with a considerable military presence, they can choose to do so and quickly learn their mistake.  Or the easier option, they can prey on those who choose not to pay for and use the secured trade routes, and not get entangled with the large org.  Options are good.

5) This in no way means bounties on pirates that are too overzealous will be ignored, in fact they may be taken up by individual groups who feel the need to do good on any certain day, who may or may not be in the org, but not as an ORG activity.  In short the pirate needs to be effecting our cash flow for an org to get involved officially.

6) That option mentioned in 4, will keep business as usual.  Allow them room to operate, with fixed rules, and everyone is happy.  In fact, if an outsider comes in and decides to "pirate it up" in their sector, you may see pirates turn on pirates to keep the status quo, and not get the Large Military presence involved.

 

All just my view, but it really seems the smarter way to go.

 

The alternative, of hunting down all pirates, not only seems ridiculously expensive both from a time and cost perspective, it also seems like it could unite them against the big bad overbearing org.

On a separate note, I think the Terrapin may be a very good information gathering vessel as well.

Its on my short list. Its a space porcupine.

Sounds like it was made for explorers, after all, who wants to collect trinkets....

Quote

  The Terrapin’s long endurance, advanced sensor suite, and range play to this aspect of exploration, whereas other explorers like the Freelancer DUR sometimes focus more on collecting trinkets, incidental salvage, and other physical items to supplement their exploration runs. While purpose built for recon, overwatch, and picket duty

      The Scarlet Order is a company born from war.
      In the year 2544, The United Planets of Earth waged a war against the Tevarin race. 
      During Operation Nemesis and The Battle of Idris IV, casualties climbed into the tens of thousands. Tremendous strain was levied against relief efforts and supply chains. The United Planets of Earth initiated a civilian militia initiative, offering tidy sums of currency to those willing to help in security escorts, supply runs, and medical support.
      A team came together on earth to set out for the battle torn planet Idris IV at the onset of Operation Nemesis. Along the way they bonded, and developed decent working relations.
      On the surface of Idris IV, these civilian men and women were overwhelmed by the devastation. They worked day and night with little to no sleep seeking wounded and dying soldiers and triaging them so that they may live long enough to be transported to a proper medical facility. After a particularly long and laborious day, one of the men heard Sergeant Adam Corr, an infiltration team leader during the operation comment about the amount of soldiers blood was on their clothing and started referring to them as “The Scarlet Order”. The civilian men and women of the “The Scarlet Order” became used to the name, and eventual felt honored by it. To date, the name instills a sense of honor and virtue among its members.
      For the duration of the Tevarin war, The Scarlet Order helped the United Planets of Earth in multiple theaters of battle. They serviced the men and women of all branches of the military.
      With the subjugation of the tevarins and the rise of Ivar Messer, The Scarlet Order was no longer offered contracts by the newly reformed United Empire of Earth government. The order began offering services to a civilian market and roamed the human systems hunting high paying contracts.
      After the fall of the Messers, The Scarlet Order found a perfect base of operations in the dying Tyrol system. They operate out of Haven and Front Row and service high paying clients in the nearby Goss system. While they are still a proud group of highly trained personnel, some of the ethics and sense of honor have faded from the Order. Most members offer escorts to those who wish to pass by the Olympus Pool of Goss, others run medical clinics and farms, while others exploit the riches of the Goss system in other ways.

      The Scarlet Order was originally a Star Wars the Old Republic guild. We were originally a pre-release guild with a little over one hundred players. After launch, we achieved multiple server firsts in end game content and flourished to numbers over 200 members. After the game went free to play, we started to loose interest in the game. Leaders stopped recruiting, raid leaders stopped raiding and eventually we all went separate ways.
      The few of us who remained friends, play different games together but not as a part of any group. Until now. The Scarlet Order is being reworked and re branded to fit into the Star Citizen universe. Our initial few members have years of experience running guilds in other games and many of us have years of experience in testing Star Citizen alpha. We have a decent sized fleet for starting out and more than one member in the Evocati Test Flight.
      Recruitment
      Our Organization has a strong focus on search and rescue with the bulk of our fleet composed of medical and exploration ships. Our industry and security divisions are maintained to support us in all our endeavors.
      We are looking for new members interested in crew and captain rolls for a wide variety of career paths and accept new and old backers with equal enthusiasm.
      The present goal of our organization is to grow as much as possible.
      We have a growing list of ships in our fleet with more stations to fill than members to fill them. In all our Divisions.
      We hope to see you in game citizens! (Click Icon Below to be redirected!)
