View Full Version : Newbie question - picking up pilots

Is there a way you can rescue a stranded pilot?

No you can't !
No need to worry about them, the Alliance will send a rescue shuttle ....eventually http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif
As for the imperials, don't shoot them, it's against the Endor convention ! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif
You can always ram them and if asked just say that you were flying casually when this half-witted imp made a right turn with out any signal and crushed onto your ship! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/tongue.gif

you cannot pick them up because they move at about 5 MGLT. Also you can carry then (if you disable them) but have no way of bringing them in.. be kinda freaky to be outside a ship when it is in Hyperspace.
THo you do get points for shooting them... even tho it isn't very sporting

It's sporting if you give them a blaster, then use missiles http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Ya know how much those missiels cost?
Better to just ram them

Nah, it's funnier to put them in the way of a big capship... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif
"And it came to pass that the Wrath of Oingo Boingo fell upon the land. And Oingo Boingo cried out and said, "Behold, I have a wrath and I have fallen out upon your land." And the villagers of the land were frightened and proclaimed to Oingo Boing, "Behold, we are frightened, because you have a wrath and have fell upon our land." And Oingo Boingo answered to them, "Its because of you being frightened because of my wrath and falling out upon your land, that I shall destroy you." And Oingo Boingo did so. And it was NOT good, for all those who did see the great Oingo Boingo fell to his wrath."
Why is it that whenever someone says SOL I am always in trouble... whether it be Standards of Learning or (the other version). I'm always screwed.
