Love the game, but need some advice.
Cruising through the Verse as Mal Reynolds; the Moral, Soldier, Pilot Captain we all know and love.
I have no crew, I have 2 immoral jobs in my hand.
I complete an immoral job and get disgruntled.
I complete the second immoral job and get a 2nd disgruntled token.
I have no crew, so have no "ruttin" crew to fire.
I simply remove both tokens and continue on my merry way.
Should there not be some kind of downside for moral but wayward solo flying captains that dabble in the immoral?
You are playing correctly.
The only reason you aren't experiencing the downside is that you have no crew. You'll find other players who do have crew will quickly outpace you - they'll get through misbehaves much more easily and will therefore be able to take on more lucrative jobs and have a higher chance of completing them on the first try.
By the way, you'll get more answers to your questions if you post them in the game specific forum for the game they concern.
