    Since when is Alex Jones "politics". By his own admission he's just an entertainer.

    18 months? They have until Christmas. All the major international companies will have already drawn up contingency plans on what to do in the event of a no deal scenario. Plans won't be activated after leave day, they'll be activated well in advance, and you know how long it takes to make major structural changes to big businesses. The major businesses will start the process soon if things keep going as they are now. Once such plans are activated - that's it. The UK loses those business assets forever. The only way the UK gets these businesses back is if they grow and expand back into Britain, they certainly won't move into Britain. The government don't take this threat seriously. They, and indeed many Brexiteers, don't see an obvious problem here. Just as the EU are acting in the interests of the EU27 and not the UK, businesses will also act in the interests of their shareholders and company, not the UK. It is time "Great Britain" woke up to the fact that the world doesn't owe it anything.

    This isn't politics. It's more like Flat Earthers or UFO abduction stories.

    So let me get this right: Ok, a warning for anyone going to the Maia system. Ok thanks for that, but it is kind of common knowledge, that these days it is a bad place, even for an anarchy system. Now to the other subject matter offered by the O.P. Now have I got this right. Flying in what was once; the biggest, baddest ship, in the game; the plug was pulled, because an FDL, started some pew pew? Would the plug had been pulled, if said FDL was an NPC, I wonder? I really like flying in Maia in open play; don't know why. I kind of look at it as a special place, only to be entered in open. I met a human in a FDL the other day. Stated pulling me out of SC close to the station, on my way in. They were ranting something about 'holo squared thargiods, all had to die'. I submitted to take up the challenge and with in a few seconds, I was looking at the re-buy screen. I made a mental note that I had just dropped below 180 re-buys, for my Cobra and carried on.

    Ha, yeah, BH initially paid very, very little. Its insane to see how we now earn so incredibly much and for some it is still a huuuuuuuuge grind. Heck, if I wanted to I could casually earn a Corvette in weekend without ignoring my significant other. :P It completely nullifies everything. Who cares if your ship is damaged, it costs peanuts to repair. Refuel or re-arm? Just automate it already, clicking the button costs more in time than the actual costs. Take a small ship to do a mission? Why bother, just take the Corvette because operating costs are non-existent. And still it isnt enough.

    The devs specifically mentioned numerous times in beta this is a first step, and the main thing comes (as we recently heared) with Beyond. It fixes some obvious exploits, which is good. And if it scares some people who misbehave into staying in their corvette than that is a bonus. :)

    I think we can agree; that 5 days have passed and so we could ask the question: Have the missions boards been nerfed, or were you just have a 'bad mission allocation day'? Just wondering. Edit:- I don't see any reduction in missions generally at this time.

    I don't think this is true. If the UK negotiators would stop trying to get an impossible deal, the talks would prgress.

    Yeah, it scales rapidly. Rank4 takes some time, rank5 is pretty much your primary occupation in-game, but rank1-3 are trivial. And you only need rank 3 for the modules. :)

    I mentioned it first I believe. In America... I guess I had better stop there, as I have had more infrations, due to mentioneing or refering to, the A word. In the world: There is the 'Queens English' and then there are those that manipulate the language to suit themselves. I would lay odds that today's date is typed: 17/10/2017, At the bottom of your screen. +1 :D

    Not having an option is always a downside, unless one finds the mere existence of options intimidating. :P

    To me the fun is in flying the ships, and faster/more agile ships are just more fun. With a conda you are more a captain than pilot, IMHO. A light-weight modded Viper mk3 is simply way cooler to fly than a corvette. Yeah, gimme more small ships! Gimme gimme!

    If someone mentions tariffs they're either being disingenuous or they're parroting things from the Daniel J Hannan school of blubbery thought. Tariffs are an irrelevance. The issues are; 1. Non-tariff barriers. 2. Being part of an organization that lets you enforce your trading rights. So lets look at an example of each of these. 1. Consider this - being part of the single market means that all British universities are accredited and the qualifications recognized throughout the entire EU. This means that UK universities benefit from attracting students who want to study a subject in English, and the UK benefits as a result. Soon, this will no longer be the case. Expect Irish universities to be oversubscribed in just a few short years and British universities to start complaining about a lack of funding (along with a corresponding increase, yet again, in tuition fees).

    Clearly you are confused, I just made a few suggestions on how to improve gameplay. What I am saying is that as the gameplay stays more or less the same currently throughout one's progression, you can argue about improving gameplay but not grind: you aren't grinding anywhere, or towards any new gameplay. If you dont like what you have now, than that is should be what you should discuss. Not complaining you dont get fast enough to the same spot you dont like anyway. Mostly though, people feeling chronicly frustrated, angry, despressed and lord knows what else should probably stop trying to peddle their despair onto others and do something they enjoy. Its literally (see that, Mr ZDW?) noone else's problem, and endless complaining doesnt help one self. Its tragic to see some here sit for years at the sideline, waiting for others to stop having fun. :(
