I've switched to offline for the time being, an incident made me do it.
I was trying to make nice money from illegal cargo runs, and would have made it easily if the station I had to dock at wasn't full (i.e. too many players trying to dock, not entering hangar)
so there I was hitting the docking request button constantly and eventually a human player scanned me up and ganked me. grrrrrr

note: offline mode is a continuation of online mode, same money/ships/status etc, you can tell when accessing the BB and maps when it lags a bit. those of you that have played only offline, try taking your huge empire online, see how you get on

My problem with the online mode, and it's been a while since I played, is the penalty for being a pirate douchebag is virtually non-existant whereas the penalty for getting your huge transport ship and all its cargo blown to shit by aforesaid pirate douchbag is actually rather high

Current mouse/keyboard control system seems to be alright. So even people who didn't buy joystick or bought the wrong one (like Tiger) are still able to play it. Analog controls just feels more fun.

The stick I'm using is: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CJ5FPTA/ref=s9_simh_gw_p147_d4_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=desktop-1&pf_rd_r=16BVSE56MXKAKRTM1QQ7&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=577048407&pf_rd_i=desktop.

It is also very usable for games like shitthunder, DCS, Arma etc.
