Just started the new community expedition, so first real taste of the Echoes update. I think my starter freighter crew are engaging in some light piracy on the side. My standing with the main system race keeps ticking down every so often, and I gain rep with the Outlaws faction. At least if they are going to go rogue and loot merchants, they can cut me in for a piece of the action!

Didn’t see anything in the patch notes.


From @Sorien@meow.social :

@Kaymorak @Grimpen It’s a bug. Whenever another player engages civilian freighters, they gain standing with outlaws, and lose it with the local race running the system… And the bug makes ANY player in that system gain and lose. :P

It’ll hopefully be fixed in the upcoming patch, which is in test.

I’ve stopped this happening so much by parking my freighter in quieter systems. Without a steady supply of salvaged frigate modules I haven’t upgraded my freighter much anyways. If your freighter isn’t somewhere where other players and you are at the same time, it should hoist the Jolly Roger.

    The same thing is happening to me! I’m like -50 with the Vy’keen! Just standing in the station and my reputation just started dropping.

    Just dropping a comment because I’m curious too. This happened to me last night in the expedition, latest patch. Portaled from one station to another, gained like 4 outlaw rep and lost 7 gek.

        Ahhhh good to know thanks. I’ll hold off doing anything with my main save until that patch then. Though it sounds like unless you’re in populated systems it shouldn’t happen.

      It stopped happening for me. I was thinking there was a small patch? I heard that the Corrosive Blood task was bugged, but I didn’t have any troubles. Not sure, wasn’t paying that close attention to patch dates. I’d guess it stopped happening 3 days ago?

      I’m updating my post, but I figured out what I did right to get it to stop happening. It only matters if your freighter is in system. I dumped my freighter several systems back when I picked up an S class Interceptor with upgraded hyperspace drives. Without a steady supply of salvaged frigate modules, my starter freighter was no where close to competing in jump range, so I left it behind, and started teleporting back when I needed it’s facilities.

      I made the mistake of summoning my freighter to the system where I’ve got most of my refiners set up and started farming, and now it happens again. The system is along the expedition route, but only has a few people passing through mostly, so not as much “going rogue” from my piratical freighter crew.

      I’m going to dump my freighter somewhere I spend less time until it gets patched, although it’s not happening so much it’s causing trouble.
