    Not trying to "prove" nor do I need to prove anything. The fact is most of the main arguments surrounding PPOO have failed, especially giving "meaning to PvP" and available "counters" in other modes. The fact is that the existing tactics are still available in any mode- and that direct combat has no demonstrative \evidence as to viability in options to counter in a P2P environment. Now as to whether PowerPlay itself would benefit- it's highly subjective and speculative at best. Personally I could rather care less, as when PowerPlay was introduced I saw it as nothing more than Political PvE fluff being added to the game, not at all did the message come across to me as purely "PvP" in perspective.

    In terms of actual content this is probably the most important and asked for thing. As it stands everything to do with guests is really bare bones and lackluster. It is a park SIM so it should be a top priority to work on.

    It's a Schrödinger's Release. You see, when CIG are faced with someone wanting a $4500 refund because the game's still not released, the game actually is released, and the person concerned has therefore gotten what they've paid for, and CIG's refund policy (which disqualifies this person from their refund) is actually much more generous than that of any other released game, so how can you possibly say they're being scumbags for refusing this refund? However, when they're facing criticism for all the stuff in the game, some of it some pretty damn basic stuff, that works badly, doesn't work, or is completely missing, that's because the game isn't released yet, so you've got to give them time (and, of course, money) to develop it. So it kinda exists in a quantum superposition of being released and not-released at the same time.

    No but I believe the rewards are "significantly" higher in open, that's what I meant.

    CGs aren't open only, are they? I personally fly them open because that's what I want to get out of them, but coulda sworn they were any mode. In any case, I think *forcing* a mode will not necessarily bring much more if any increased activity. I think adding additional incentive for people to fly open to counter the baked in incentive of solo/pg which is that you can avoid being attacked would be wise. The complaint that just a few solo people can wreck the balance seems like something that should just be fixed in and of itself, mode rules being irrelevant, especially since those same people could accomplish the same thing in open with firewall rules, right?

    That's because FD doesn't know how firearms work and have designed guns based on a lack of firearms knowledge. You can't pretend that the gun fires more rounds that it carries and that are seen leaving the barrel. Sorry, but FD intentionally designed multicannons that fire with a ROF of only 6-8 rounds per second. You can "stand by it", but you are still wrong. You can easily confirm the number of rounds registered as impact on the shields/hull in addition to seeing each individual round leave the barrel. It's in the outfitting screen. It's also represented visually by the round velocity when the rounds leave the barrel.

    Perhaps that's why we've never seen any evidence... because they fell off the edge, never to return? ;)

    I'm not arguing the opposite. They said they we'rent giving numbers anyway, what are you blabbing about? That still doesn't invalidate whether or not powerplay should be open only. Michael brookes said it himself, there's a very significant margin of players in open. I personally think powerplay would greatly benefit as an emergent player activity the same ways CG's rewards are set being open only. How do you make sure it doesn't alienate solo players? I believe at the very least don't let it influence the BGS in solo since players are shielded from the risk of player interactions. I think it's a fairly good trade-off.

    Ha! The Round Earth is also a hoax according to the Flat Earth Society. I wonder if they'll ever start an expedition from the shore of California to find "the edge"?

    That was a hoax according to the Flat Earth Society. ;) (well, and maybe "creationists", too) Never happened. We're a single solar system in the entirety of the Universe. Everything was created around the "Earth" after all.:P

    Does that actually work (I haven't done any of those missions in a while)? I know you can have your collectors ignore things to collect, but hadn't heard about influencing what your hatch breakers pop out. Or was that meant in a "this would be nice if it worked like that" way (agreed if so)? And dang about the timer still being there..

    "A good indication" =/= actual statement. Try again. I do agree that PPOO isn't going to happen.

    On this day in history, Man first left footprints on Luna (along with a lot of debris that no one ever went back to pick up and put in a bag to clean the area up).

    Yeah, somebody messed something up. Running EDDI outside of VA shows reasonable CPU usage, though.

    You are confused, sandro was replying to a comment in regards to OPEN only powerplay during a livestream and said "People who play Open versus other modes are majority, by a significant margin" that's already a good indication there's more players taking part in all spheres of activities in open versus other modes. That doesn't mean open only powerplay is going to happen. I'd argue that multiplayer focused activities are (obviously) more popular in open in that regard.

    Hey, you know... they spent a lot of time trying to convolute the main issues by providing isolated or extreme examples... at least give them some credit. ;) Perhaps a pence or two? :P

    Clearly. A legend in their own mind, indeed! As are most of the "alpha" personalities on the forums.

    So with all this talk about the game being "released"? What is the metascore? Why does claim its release date as "TBD"? When can we expect honest reviews of the "released game" Star Citizen?
