Newton’s Gambit represents a group of pilots who are dedicated to flying wholly without the use of Flight Assist (in space and on surface). Though we may be spread over many Minor Factions and Organizations, we hold fast to the ideal of this self-imposed law. Within Elite Lore, we will be an underlying network of Commanders that operate in relative secrecy under the existing powers of the Galaxy. On paper, we will have a custom minor faction representing our interests located in Nauri, an Independent System floating between the powers of the Galaxy with a fully functioning Black Market and ties to some of the biggest powers in the Galaxy.
Commander Relations: To foster camaraderie with a small group of pilots who share a similar passion. Though we may be lone wolves spread across the Galaxy, pledged members of Superpowers, or leaders in our local wings, Gambit Commanders can always turn to Gambit Commanders. We support our fellow Gambit Commanders in their ambitions as we are able, and try to always provide a priority one open channel. Our group is one of close camaraderie, no matter the distance.
Confidential: Communication passed through the Gambit is kept within the Gambit.
Communication: Achieved primarily through ingame channels and our Inara Wing (for those Commander’s without previous Wings). In order to support those Commanders who need to remain in other Wings, any Critical Information to the Gambit will be propagated through ingame channels to those appropriate commanders. As we will likely be a small group, this will hopefully suffice. As an added layer, we will also support a Discord Server for chat and voice. For now, when Commanders are added to the Gambit, they will be listed in our Reddit post, the Inara Wing, and our Discord Server Channel.
Promotion: Please use the tag #ng-elite if able.
Minor Faction Location: Nauri - Hiraga Dock
Instancing: Open and Private Groups alike
Caveats: The Commanders of Newton’s Gambit realize that there are some technical limitations to a strict policy of FA-OFF. Primarily, these limitations come from a Commander’s video card not being capable of rendering planetary landings at a smooth FPS. Our Commanders understand these limitations and support toggling FA on when facing technical issues such as low frame rates due to system limitations. These exceptions are only to be used for situations in which skill can not realistically overcome technical limitations. That said, we do not, nor are we capable of, policing our Commanders adherence to this. We believe you get what you put into the Gambit. Commanders that pledge to Newton’s Gambit are ones who want to celebrate this style of play because they view this restriction as a gift, and believe it heightens their play and enjoyment of the game.
