    The Empire is ahem.... *lightyears* ahead with chair technologies. :) That said, I agree that it would be cool to see more variety as OP states.

    It's questionable whether Colonia even has a fully functioning economy let alone being a superpower. The powerplay factions aren't considered superpowers and yet they are all much bigger than Colonia. As for the Pilots Federation, it's not a superpower in the conventional sense, but does have huge influence. For example it owns GalNet, so in effect it controls the news. It wouldn't surprise me to find that it might be a major shareholder in the Bank of Zaonce or Universal Cartographics. If it owned either or both of those organisations it's power would be immense. It would be foolish to underestimate the amount of 'soft' power that it wields. Joseph Stalin is said to have asked dismissively 'How many divisions does the Pope have?' History shows he rather missed the point, the Soviet Union didn't even last a century where as the Vatican still influences over a billion people.

    If true, that's pretty sad that people would stoop to that level.

    I think the news of the CODE's demise is a little exaggerated. Closed as needless drama thread.

    CGs are difficult to oppose (if there is no opposing CG) as players in all three modes on two (soon to be three) platforms can participate in them, just like Powerplay and the BGS itself. If the new features are aimed at reducing the incidence of some unwanted player / player interactions - and could be seen as a form of punishment - why would Frontier go out of their way to reward those players with new content? .... that's not to say that a military career path would not be a welcome addition to the game - for all players, in all modes, of course.

    Then it's very probably going to have to be up to those players to do something about it by getting together to seek out challenging combat. Frontier are well aware, from what one Dev has said, that the majority of players do not get involved in PvP. It is then unsurprising that gankers at CGs don't get much opposition from truckers. It is not the community's fault that most of them don't seem to enjoy PvP.

    Indeed they did hold a vote - after a backlash on the forums to the announcement that the long awaited ship transfer feature had been changed from delayed with cost (as it was in the DDF topic) to instant (to allow it to be squeezed in to 2.2 with less development time / cost). It depends if the subset forms the majority of those that care to express an opinion (or vote in an official off-forum poll when asked to do so).

    Not really sure where you read that into it. As to petitioning for harder NPCs - that'd affect the whole player-base, not just those few at the top end of the skill distribution - and would therefore be unlikely to succeed. It would be more likely that Frontier could be successfully petitioned to permit Private Groups to set a flag to disable Pilots' Federation bounties. Players that don't get involved in PvP are probably uninterested in offering those players what could be considered a reward, i.e. more PvP. The size of the galaxy and the existence of the three game modes makes it less likely to be effective - the gankers only need to find any player to shoot at whereas those seeking to destroy the gankers need to find those gankers.

    We were talked to, in this thread: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/226764-Yes-PVP-is-unfair .... and this thread: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/349769-Deliberate-Ramming (and, probably, other threads too). Enhanced consequences for some player/player interactions has been talked about, by Frontier, for well over a year now. Not sure about the last sentence - you PvP because it is the "only challenge left in the game" and are discontent that it would appear to be being made more challenging?

    I doubt that the karma system implementation will only be PF bounties. Sandro has also mentioned making Security Vessels more capable to deal with Engineered ships.

    I'd expect that the PvE players will be affected by the change - by being somewhat less affected by players attacking them.

    In short - we can't. Nope. I don't like the idea of singling out one area for specific targeted taxation. If a business is profitable then let it pay tax on its high profits. If it pays its employees a shedload, let them pay tax on their earnings (plus employer levies). Seems fair to me. Why not, seeing as Goolge, MSFT, facebook, Uber are so profitable an electron tax that every tech company has to pay a tax per kB of data moved? I mean, they make lots of money...

    Today my lovely daughter Abbie took part in the Race for Life - Pretty Muddy 2017. As I'm a forum mod I din't advertise this on the forum but mentioned it on the Discord Channel we lurk in....

    This was what I meant about the thresholds and repayment. It should be defined as upper quartile of income, and interest to track base rate (or an unfudged LIBOR) from the date that is reached only. So interest free until you earn significant sums (most won't) after that it's recoup time. It won't raise much, but it is more progressive that way.

    In the Lavecon twitch stream, Sandro mentioned two features that are coming for 2.4: It sounds like these will be the first steps with regard to changes to C&P and the introduction of a karma system.... .... (a karma system that would probably also impose consequences on players for Combat Logging)
