    imo, just mod out the pirates on a first playthrough, and then re-enable them for the extra content and shenanigans

    NO. playing without pirates is wrong. just play the damn thing. dont start with impossible difficulty its pointless. modify difficulty as you see fit and enjoy

    But is it true that one of the only ways to really get by with the pirates in the game is by joining them? I don't want to be shoe-horned into siding with a faction just because that's the only way to get by in the game.

    I've never had an issue with pirates. Just don't muck around with the difficulty settings and you'll be fine.

    I also didn't have any problems with pirates in my playthrough using standard difficulty settings. Keep an eye on the map screen as I think it highlights ongoing battles which you'll want to head to in order scavenge equipment, even if you can't/don't want to use it, it sells for a pretty penny. Be prepared to run away a lot when doing this and just pick your battles in general. Much later in the game I eventually sided against the pirates and they ended up pretty much wiped out. Only reason I never finished the game was one of the dominator bosses ended up being a pain to find/beat (I can't recall, it was years ago I last played).

    Just played this again and I just remembered how stupidly strong the pirates are if they are set above normal. 3 years in-game and they hold all but 3 non-dominator systems. Only 8 rangers left in the game. Devs should've been a little more creative and made them into something else because why would they resort to piracy when they can take over the whole universe instead. I like the added difficulty but Reboot was better balanced and more fun overall.

    Are the rangers also pirates? I know I committed my fair share of Ranger-Piracy. I usually went and found whichever Ranger was ranked above me, and then blew him up to see if he had any loot. And to boost my own ranking.
