    I really have been around a long, long time playing this game. I know it inside and out. I understand exactly what it is about. I'm really are engaging gameplay, not text based adventures or "using your imagination". What I am trying to say it's that the actual mechanics of the gameplay need to be more fun to drive people away from the apparent need to grind for big ships etc.

    You should try it. I see it as more than comparable. I'm walking around a massive world wondering how they managed to get it all in (just like elite), it is beautiful (just like elite), I've spent over 100 hours and not scratched the surface. There are many different ways of playing it (just like elite). The only difference is that I didn't feel like it was grinding whilst playing it and the multiplayer element.

    It is an example of engaging gameplay though. I spent over 100 hours on it too.

    I've played this game since Alpha. I'm not trying to rank up (I'm still not elite in combat or trade yet have over 12 weeks play time). I've been to Sag A in a type 6, I've been heavily involved in Powerplay, I've engineered ships and participated in CG's. I've UA bombed stations (frontier ones, not pmf ones), worked the BGS. I'm at the point where I have realised that the whole thing is paper thin. I just want fun and engaging gameplay and can't see where it is coming from. The thargoid thing still looks to be a series of placeholders storylines for someone else's story. The sheer amount of time it takes to move ships, obtain money for rebuys etc is preventing me from doing the things I want when I log in. I'm not using exploits either, so everything is incredibly slow.

    I've just completed the new Zelda game. Very different type of game, but you can do the main quest at your own pace and the whole thing was a joy from start to finish. Grinding to get a reward at the end of it is poor gameplay. I would rather enjoy the whole of the time I'm playing a game.

    You are about to encounter comments like "use your imagination", "if you're grinding for something you really want then you're doing it wrong", "kids these days don't know how to work for something" and my all time favourite; the person wielding the sidewinder with a placard picture.

    Powerplay is dead on its feet with no developer time since its release (with the exception of some minor tweaks).

    im also impressed. I would have been gobsmacked if you managed to get elite trade in a sidewinder.

    I think going forward Horizons will be the last season to ever be released, I doubt that we will ever see a season 3 and that all future content will be purchased. for example being able to purchase a planetary landing module and being able to purchase access to engineers for those who don't own horizons. while those who own horizons will purchase a atmosphere module so they can get access to planets with an atmosphere. only guessing.

    A Valid question since frontier have changed how the game development will proceed. the only info frontier has given is in the below quote from Zac in another thread. Frontier have already released a road map for 2018 and your current LEP obviously includes what's coming in 2018. Looking into what zak says it sounds like that those who only purchased Horizons will have to purchase premium content, im guessing that squadron mobile bases will be among the first premium content and access to thargoid space being another possible area where players will have to purchase access, I wouldn't be surprised if they add purchases for cmdr save slots. im guessing that premium content wont go down the route of pay to win as that would kill the games userbase. the worrying thing is that Zac only mentions the Beyond series updates which we know is basically the 2018 road map, what happens after that is anyone's guess.

    Im not prepared to pay 84 quid again for something I dont want no matter what it is even in ED without a sensible reaseon. Would you pay for a Thargoid ship skins or perhaps even pay real money to be on the side of the Thargoids? Some would say it is just a re hash of the planking mechanic. I duuno. But 84 quid sounds a lot. On the surface at least I think 84 quid would be a bit much (especially if you consider what has been proposed.. see title) because you wouldnt get the base game and solo horzions community goals as a bonus (non engineering version). So 84 quid seems quite steep one way or another. Well if bounties on pieates was increased... well maybe. Thing that bothers me is would it be fair on people who have already paid for community goals and still feel that they havent got their monies worth? Seems like their are a lot of folke hat enjoy that stuffs. Is t right yo think the game came out (before the current player base?) there must have been at least eight interesting immunity goals...

    I don't think that's the case, besides the lower your opponent's rank compared to yours, the less progress you get for a kill. And vice versa. So it doesn't make any sense to shoot Harmless pilots in Sidey's.

    Agreed. What about mindless ganking? Isn't that a game-wide problem too? (Albeit not a cheat per-se, more of an abuse). ::EDIT:: Just to clarify. I mean situations like wing of 4 experienced players in engineered Vettes/FDL's/whatever killing new players in Sidewinders in starter systems or the same wing of experienced players jumping and killing a defenceless (relatively) transporter ship in a trade CG (aka not pirating, just plain killing for no reason).

    Eksperymentalne moduły, służące do walki z Thargoidami, można nabyć na kilku typach baz planetarnych. Na pewno Military... reszty niestety nie pamiętam.

    From the ED steam page. Seems quite concise of what the base game is, I'm not seeing any mention of landings. So I personally wouldn't call it a trap. It takes all of 2 minutes to read what the base game is and what options are available with expansions etc.
