    Since there is no information about where any possible staffing problems exist in FD, calling for fresh heads at the top is about as useful as calling for Doris the cleaning lady to be changed. And young bloods would make mistakes during the knowledge transfer peroid and after. All teams that are affected would have to go through the forming, storming, norming, and performing cycle again, so its only something you would do if you were sure it was the solution, which its impossible for you to know. As for people calling for specific devs to be fired, those posts are made from time to time, but fall under the rule about dev harrassment and are deleted as soon as we see them, which might explain why you don't see them (although not sure anyone has made a post like that in this thread).

    Well, there is ... "Untitled" as Kow didn't set a topic. "11. If you win, you get to submit next week's Drabble topic, so make sure you post it by 3pm GMT Monday. Or else chaos will ensue and who knows what will happen..."

    As far as i can see, this also isn't without cause. I certainly hope people are not getting upset over nothing... that would be so un-internet-like :D I think the main cause though at the moment is the information drought. People want to hear about new exciting plans. Keep people distracted with stuff like that and to see new exciting content coming. Do that, and people will forgive you anything. Look at Star Citizen, 6 years of hype and still no game, and yet they keep lapping it up every time CIG release a new show or hold a new concept ship sale. Perhaps FD should spend less energy on developing the game and more on marketing! :D And sure, some things can change based off feedback. I'm not sure what feedback FD should be listening to here though.... seems largely like accusations FD don't have their stuff together internally and people telling them how to dev.... maybe its right, but not sure what people think FD will do about that.

    Neither would I. Forum drama is just that, drama. Ah ha! And this is where FD will be looking most i think. Players playtime, what ships they are flying, where they are flying, who is buying cosmetics and expansions, which demographics are doing so. In short, real data, not forum blah blah. This isn't the first time we have had a wave of negativity. We've had it several times before. Often during times of information droughts, sometimes after a major patch, sometimes weeks after a major patch. People think this is a bad one? Meh, rose tinted glasses. The powerplay and Engineer negativity waves were much much worse. It will pass. During which time, people will make grand proclamations of ED's impending doom, how the devs don't know what they are doing, how they have the solution to what FD are doing, and how FD need to listen to them.... although this last part is the funniest bit of it all. People for ages have been clamouring for FD to change from the season model. Now it appears FD are...

    No idea why, but T7 seem particularly skilled at evading interdictions. Might be because of the insane yaw they have.

    I do think the devs have gone a little too far in terms of ease of interdictions/interdicting against NPCs, but not much. At least on the interdicting side. I can 90% of the time interdict other ships without too much of a problem, so much harder and it would probably swing the other way. In terms of avoiding interdictions, could take more of a nudge. I'm evading small ship interdictions in my Beluga, and while i'm not complaining, it does seem a bit wrong... although i've not checked the rank of those ships doing the interdicting... maybe they have been low ranked. In terms of PvP, i can see why FD might want to make it so that the interdictor has the harder time of it.... although i haven't read through all the posts or have any knowledge of where the balance lies in terms of them. If its purely down to the two ships' SC manouverablity and relative skill, then that is fine. I'd hope for PvP someone flying a fat ship would have an almost impossible time pulling an agile ship as long as they are fairly...

    Ok, let's make it clear. There were never any sequels to the original. The original is a masterpeice. There certainly was no second film that totally wrecked the story and lore, and no third film that might have been just as bad.

    "So.... you want ME to be an ambassador for the United Nations???" "Sadly yes Mr Kow, you're our only chance of peace due to your unique skillset." Kow looked out of the window at the vast armada ready to combat the Thargoid fleet ravaging the galaxy. "Your onsie is of such vile repugnance to humanity we're hoping the Thargoids will feel the same and abandon their attack." "Do I need to be strapped to the outside of the Ship?" He struggled against the ropes.

    Yeah, realistic expectations are important. I now expect a buggy release, connection issues for the first couple of weeks after a major patch, several half-implemented features that will take weeks or months to be maybe be improved on, and perhaps a few things that i will appreciate. Am i doing it right? :D

    Ah, i see where its going now. Buy an extra bed for your ship! Only $50 per bed from our store! Be the envy of your friends with this delux double bed with tiger stripe sheets and mirrored ceiling. Barry White will play when you get into bed.

    Heh, IIRC, it was seeing my CM3 with the ship kit that prompted you to buy the CM3 kit right? :D It is rather smexy. In my (retconned) headcanon its now my original CM3 which has been with me years, was a heap of scrap when i bought it, and been patched time and again since. I just wish FD would make cosmetics quicker so we could get a wider range of them to customize our ships. Also some internal cosmetics would be nice. Imagine a reaver cockpit to go along with the reaver external kit! *drools* And still waiting for those damn Explorer outfits! And I want... i want..... ship kits for Saud Kruger ships, and a Cobra Mk4 ship kit, and more paintjobs for my ships, and a pony!

    Welcome Commander! Thankful to have you onboard and kudos for contributing to Elite. Fly safe, drive dangerous and good luck with your cosmic undertakings. The Galactic AcademyMentors will set you up for initial play-through and beyond. The following thread will help you find collaborative game-play and some. The single best recommendation is to seriously take your time and experiment before you commit or switch between game-mode and play style. Don’t be afraid of a do-over or two and if needs be ‘clear your save’ can be found in-game under options menu. The most awesome gamepad software ever: Padstarr, Grifta Morphing Gamepad, TobiiEyeX Controller, ECHOTalkative AI VoiceAttack with HCSVoicepacks are highly commended for extensively enriching game-play and more. Have fun acclimating, play-testing and configuring your control schemes to benefit you specifically long-term while you carry on with all-out seeking fortune and fame. The secret to piloting is persistence with mastering: sweet-spot...

    Being able to visit the facility i doubt would do much for your enthusaism. They open up the facility, you go visit, and then what? Nothing else for the moment. We will at a guess see more with 2.4... but how much, nobody knows (except at FD). The story IS developing slowly. How intentional that is, no idea. I just take it as it comes.
