Is hard difficulty meant to have you so on the edge? Jun 29, 2019 1:16:06 GMT -5 resistor likes this

I've been playing since when star traders rpg in mobile was new, so I thought that when I jumped into frontiers it would be easy, it hasn't been. Or at least I feel like that.
I've been playing since january, first in hard failed horribly, then challenging, it went ok, have been managing to get a lot of unlocks, almost all of them, so I thought it was time to jump into a hard playthrough. For the last week I've been tryharding to get to ryeline, once I get there it becomes kinda ok, but the biggest problem is that I'm constantly losing crew, constantly running with 0 fuel, having to do emergency jumps... And at first I thought this meant I was failing, but now I realize that those aren't defeat conditions.
So since recruiting is free... like... does this mean you're supposed to be ok with crew just constantly leaving, running at 0 fuel and have low morale, be doing emergency jumps... Like I've already done a lot of tips from the guides, and played for almost 7 months. So now I feel compelled to ask... am I supposed to be doing that constantly? because I just thought that they were like nets so you wouldn't feel bad for losing your playthrough due to forgetting to refuel, but are these mechanics you are supposed to use?
in case it's relevant, I usually play explorer, and use medium mass ships. My current playthrough is a Zenrin explorer, with a frontier liner, I have reached near the end of the ryeline questline, but I found myself constantly "abusing" the traveling at 0 fuel, and then just trying to replenish my skill pools to the best of my ability at every stop, doing emergency jumps, and make quests with my ship 90% damaged. And since it turned out ok, I just went with it, but I now have a lingering feeling that the run may not actually be "valid" like from a gamer point of view. Like... was that run really how you are supposed to play, or was I abusing mechanics that were just meant as a safety net?
