Playing in free mode I was passing through Torrid Veil (if I remember correctly) in DeVries.

Some Reivers were attacking the lonely station there. I joined in on the fun and starting wasting the Reiver dolmech (?) squads and other groups of small Reiver ships. I destroyed countless and had to take a short trip in the local highway to recharge my shields after a while. On very hard even small ships can drain your shields quickly.

Anyway, this went on and on, much like a lottery in Nipton. I spent over 30 minutes shooting down ships while more kept appearing. Anyone else had this or is it a bug? Reminds a bit of the Xenon core sectors in X3 where endless streams of Xenon ships spawn out of thin air.

Named sectors tend to have spawned ships, so yeah It's not a bug, its a feature.

That makes sense, if a squad is supposed to always exist on patrol. I noticed in Verdant Profit that the Marauder Phoenixes get replaced pretty quickly. Might also be an extra Phoenix or two (but it could also be that their cycles of plundering and unloading are more synced up because of my actions and I just wasn't seeing all of them at the same time before).

Come to think of it, I almost never find habitations in Barren Heart without some Reivers attacking. I've never come across a stream of them like you did though, that sounds like a lot of fun.
