    Same can be said of many aspects. I think the truth is closer to players not being able to adequately describe what they want. And the worse you can do with that is try to appease everyone. That's how you end up with major scope creep ;)

    I think you're right, but not just about the cloud in use. It's more likely to be about the canonical owner of player accounts, which are Xbox accounts and proprietary Elite Dangerous accounts owned by Frontier on PC. From what I can see, these are only shared on the first discovery field of each system, and I guess that these are just plain old text data without a reference back to the originating player account backend (consider the inability to query your first discovereds). If the gameservers used directly by sessions are indeed required to be on Azure for Xbox, then that's indeed a whole other world of pain to unify. Refactoring the player account model, taking into account different platform backends, their customer account models, and how those handle DLC and Game Extra purchases, would give the backend team no end of fun and games. I do something very similar in my day job.

    An interesting question. Obviously there's no guarantee and there may be more behind the scenes with Fortinite that we're not aware of... but I'm going to bring this forward to the team and see if it's something that can be investigated again. As others have rightly said, historically this hasn't been possible for one reason or another - no-one seems to have any real consensus on what that reason is. Some studios I've worked for have said it's one thing, another said it's something else, etc. etc. I'll speak to the production teams and at least get it in front of their eyes. :)

    OK, so not with the mod hat on. Believe it or not directors of companies who have share options exercise those options from time to time. I checked BT at random as well, its directors have all had share dealings, including selling, in the last month. I assume as a result BT is doomed. I then checked EA, being another games company. All of its directors have sold shares since 1 January this year. Clearly it too is doomed. Considering the FD announcement you will notice that the 'sale' described is a transfer of nil value to a spouse. So maybe not getting out at all. Just read the announcement to see that. This is a normal business transaction, it's a non-event. But feel free to try and incite mass hysteria, as people have been doing every time there's any form of announcement. FD has been proclaimed dead at least three times a year every year since I've been here, and yet, here we are still.

    The note in question is hosted on AIM, under FDEV's page there. FDEV's page on AIM is here - The announcement is under news. Note the following concerning the document.

    Robert, I'm sure I am one of vitriolic previous Eve players; nevertheless I'll stop dragging my opinion/experiences with Eve in to this game. Incidentally it's not 'prejudice', its experience; and over this I can never change my opinion.

    So regarding this; I'll stop responding with any comments....and just give E hope in other threads.
