    PvE flag with immunity to the players in open doesnt make sense to me. I might have completely misunderstood stuff. Ok so if folk want PvE at present they can join a PvE gropup or groups. There's no limint to teh number of groups you can join, as far as I know. Conseqently there's no limit to the number of PvE folk you can meet or play with. 20,000 seems like a big number for a single group. As far as I know there are a lot of groups so I cant really see what the problem is. A PvE flag inteh open PvP world sound liek it will cause more problems than it would solve. Here's some examples. i) Im a PvP or Bounty Hunter. Ah here comes a player! Oh he's got a PvE flag. Frustration! Why teh heck is my instacne filled with all these PvE players. Get a room!

    Luckily for us that is not going to happen. Can I ask you to be more polite please? Calling people weirdos just because of their play style is not cool.

    Players have been writing about the ministry of re-seduction (edit oopps typo re-education) for about two years but a player minor faction was never created until last week. So it has history but is also entirely new and what you do will shape it in game. The base is console and mac mostly for now. It's based away from the rubbish in a system that offer pretty much everything a hard ocre player or casual player could wish. Most importantly, it's a new group and consequently its a close group. Something fresh for old timers and something truly enjoyable for new players.

    I think we were supposed to get it in 2.4. Not sure on that though...

    The difference is if you're exploiting it now - the consequence is you cannot play with everyone else (rightly so).

    The soundtrack found in FDEV store contains all the music that was in the game at release. There were some new amazing tracks added in the recent time and I would love to see a new CD being released that contains all the new music!

    That would be great too! They'd had to make the voices/accents varied enough though.

    But then it's not really a Player Minor Faction. I see no point to having things in the current state. FDEV said 'A', it's time for them to say 'B' now :) I also know that Mike Brookes was keen on seeing more integration, as is Sandro. I hope we'll see some news on that as part of post-2.4 improvements.

    Yes, I am not arguing with that. I just think that none of the player groups should have gameplay advantage over others. Game modes aside (because it's not gameplay), as it currently stands, PVP player have a massive advanatage over PVE players due to lack of a well designed C&P system. And I think this is the way to address the issue - try to resolve it via gameplay. I like the idea of a Diplomat status, I think it would fit well with the lore and the game mechanics, but I just don't want yet another system that will be abused and exploited by the players. Thanks :) We're doing our best! :D

    But that's not how Elite was designed. Other players are supposed to be able to kill you whenever they feel like it. That's part of the game. What is lacking at this stage unfortunately is the proper crime and punishment system for such behaviour - which FDEV are currently working on I believe. Your idea in the form you have presented it is a bad one, as it would allow for any player to avoid hostile players indefinitely, without any consequences whatsoever. That is not how this game works, whether you like it or not. Most of the choices you make in Elite have consequences. This should also be the case with your proposition. And in my opinion the ability to avoid all the hostile players due to having a "diplomat" status is a really big deal and the consequences should be adequate. In fact, I think to what I've put above (status is assigned only for the duration of the diplomatic mission, the missions should be actual missions you can complete, and not completing the mission would have to incur...

    Sounds like a PVE flag. And a one that you can apply indefinitely. Very bad idea. It would make more sense if the status lasted only until the diplomatic mission is active (and the missions would have to be proper missions). Also there would have to be severe penalty for not completing the mission for the flagged player to avoid exploiting this mechanics.
