(UUNN HQ) All three major factions agreed today to abolish the antiquated tag system that has been in place for over a decade. The most significant fallout from this decision is that civilians will no longer be protected by the threat of penalties against those who would shoot them down.
“The factions decided that it’s time everyone puts their big-girl pants on,” said Apreel Amadán, the Official Arbitrator overseeing the agreement. “The only ‘tags’ left in place are the ‘Rookie Tags’ — which will now only cover pilots up to level 3.”
To help offset the added danger, the Factions will be buying TRI Corporation’s new Defense Drone Mk.III, which is much faster and stronger — and has a one-jump range — so it will hunt bounties in sectors one jump away from station sectors.
