    Well at least bubbling together players would be easier being a binary option :P

    That is genuinely frightening. It has to be on par to a gambling problem. I can't conceivably see how a game/software can ever equate to 60K of value unless it functionally makes you more money.

    It's a shame because I feel that was one of the goals. But all the will in the world can't make the player base interact in a way they do not want to. You know what, I take back my previous post, it was incredibly naive. Some kind of in game flag, much like "Report crimes", would make much more sense.

    Isn't there one that has supposed to have put 30K into it?

    I mean, it looks stunning and great fun to watch. But it has more plot holes than the hull of a Borg cube :(

    It's not Star Trek. It might be wearing its skin, but that is as far as it goes :(

    I find it a pain too, but I live with it. My guess is that it is not deemed high enough priority to handle :(

    Fixed it for you. Try to avoid using the COLOR tags to enforce a font color, just let the forum theme handle it ;)

    My guess would be he is taking the only logical viable course of action he has left and steering the project into a perpetual early access cycle.

    You know I would be all for swapping out the modes entirely: Open > PvP (As is, just rename in place) Private > PvE (Pilot's federation enforced weapon lock down on members) IMO. Private groups just fragment the player base.

    Not at all. I am just trying to understand your motivation for continuing to perform an action that you are so obviously frustrated with? What drives you to continue to engage in PvP?

    Given that you conflate being friendly with your own enjoyment, I get the distinct impression that you struggle to emphasise with the person on the other end of your lasers. ;) I have been a big advocate of co-op play from the start and you are right it would be great to see more but this game is just not designed to be that way. My hope is that the wing-missions mentioned for ED:Beyond might help turn a corner there.

    You are confusing the desire to stay on topic for this forum with confirmation that the act is condoned. Not wanting to speak for AA, or for that matter go off topic myself, but I have to agree with some of the above posts; combat logging from an NPC to avoid the penalties is damaging to the BGS at the very least.

    Enjoying dominating another player is the very essence of that though. You are comparing your skills to that of other players. Sure there is no direct 'Gamer score' as in other games but at it's core, it is effectively the same. You are asserting your dominance over another player and hence measuring yourself against them. Care to expand on that? I can't see the leap of thought from removing engineers to this? People were logging before engineers anyway.

    I am inclined to agree with some of your points there. Namely, I too am not opposed to PvP; not often interested in it either. True, the game is not like a traditional game where you actively select the option to engage in PvP. Private and solo are there to use, arguably the implementation could be better, but we all have the option nonetheless. I am interested in knowing, from your experience, how many friendly player interactions do you have vs. hostile? And what are the nature of those interactions?

    I get that, I just don't consider the possibility of interaction with friendly player's to be worth the risk IMO

  3. Hi I am Nats, a long time Frontier and First Encounters fan. Been visiting this forum for around 8 years now looking for news on Elite 4 - still can't really believe it is actually getting made at last.

    I have loved being part of the Elite Dangerous Kickstarter it was certainly quite a ride, especially having a laugh with the other fans in the comments section - the Monty Python bit must be the highlight for me, other than the first day and the fantastic ending of course. But I also very much enjoyed seeing the Elite 4 project gradually come to life from basically nothing to a fully fledged game concept over the length of the Kickstarter.

    I can't wait now for 2014 and especially looking forward to that planetary landing expansion when it comes along !!

    Please don't hestitate to leave a message if you wish.

About nats
Biography:
Also known as Commander Nats - drop by and say hello in-game.

Started computer gaming with the ZX81 then the Spectrum but it wasnt till I played games like Frontier, X-Wing and Wing Commander on my Amiga that I got started getting hooked on computer games - mainly space and flight sims. And then First Encounters came and it was even better. Then space and flight sims as computer games died. I dropped into the Frontier forums religiously every year after, waiting for news on Elite 4, pestering David Braben quite a bit with constant 'where is it' questions.

I bought into Elite Dangerous just after the Kickstarter finished, during Standard Beta, and it hasn't disappointed. Main thing I am waiting for are the planetary landings, which I loved most in the earlier games.

Things I would liike added to the game: planet landings/busy spaceports, better external view system with landing/chase view, Thargoids, human presence, busy spacestation docks, better missions, spaceship crew, passengers, cargo life support.
