    given a choice of playing with NO players or playing with cheaters I am afraid I take door number 1 every time. and the majority of posts seem to concur. btw where are the "Apex" PvPers? usually they are very vocal when it comes to posts about cheaters and what not.. .Nightshady exp was very vocal about his certainty that FD would either be incapable or not dare to punish

    if you have 5 dirty drives but only 1 is god rolled you lose all 5 Dirty drives. if you had 2 clean drives NOT god rolled you get to keep them.. is my understanding.

    While you're right, there's absolutely NO 'wrong mode' .. it's wallopin' good fun to fly in and out again, sightseeing right under their noses, in a speedy stealth build. (Did someone say Eagle? Costs near nothing if the worst actually does happen but you do know for a fact, if you've no cargo, no NPC will ever touch you).

    Likewise. I don't have ridiculous hours to play, fly mid-range ships, mouse keyboard on a below spec laptop but play open anyway, including CG's, visits to engineers, the lot. Find it adds that unknown factor, making Elite: Extra Dangerous. Don't think I've ever had an issue not able to escape from but even if I did .. stuff happens and I could introduce you to the elite NPC FdL who just tried to mess up my Python's day. In answer to the OP then .. hope so. Little by little the galaxy is 'maturing'. So come on in, the water's lovely, and the adrenalin too.

    no but i think it is clear his sentiments were that they would not touch his special toys.... and given the video proof of his cheats one would hope he got his gear culled

    obviously i can only speak for myself... but i have NEVER used the exploit (and if i had i would have been rubbish at it, as my rolls are hardly god like). but hand on heart. if i had to lose one of my mods across all my ships for the good of the game, whilst I WOULD probably do a Victor Meldrew ("I dont believe it!") on here, I would happily take a little friendly fire if it is the only way to get rid of the cheaters gear. Needs of the many and all that

    i would like it, where i would LOVE it would be CQC however. we need as many players as possible in that. also would be great fun if each platform had a unique skin so could have fun matchups of xbox vs ps4, PC vs xbox etc etc if they wanted.

    With so many players telling us to "git gud" over the last 12 months, I do not think it is unreasonalble for all those who cheated to be put on the naughty step for a few months at the top of the post FD have removed cheated mods and i applaud them. BUT that still means no punishment as such, and whilst i am not saying ban them.... or even reset account... i think a CMDR name and shame at the top of this forum or better yet a link on the game log in would be fair, given many have been put back many hrs by them. https://media.giphy.com/media/m6tmCnGCNvTby/giphy.gif

    gets my vote. this IS the least "good" solution however. I dont think it would be unfair if those "Apex" PvPers telling us to git gud were actually cheating shysters did receive an in game punishment . (edited due to ott)

    in an ideal world yes! however FD have OFFICIALLY said no punishments for any of the other exploits which have been so popular would be punished... that said, whilst i personally felt quince was an exploit, FD disagreed with me. the cheaters may be a symptom of a problem that progression is too slow in your opinion. in my view progression is so fast now its silly. in naval terms , something which ED compares itself to a lot, people are going from a fishing boat to an air craft carrier in under 24hrs play. madness.

    Punishment for the crime. If all they did was remove the cheats, then there would still be incentive to cheat. A temporary benefit with no downside is still a net benefit. Frontier's choice was very mild imo. No one was banned. They got to keep their unrelated mods. That's extremely generous.

    Lol, yup. PvP should be a lot more satisfying now that things are a little cleaner! Though there is still plenty of imba stats left in the game. Progress is happening :)

    The screen shot is extremely encouraging. Would love to hear some official word from Frontier though. Preferably on a stickied thread with comments disabled. :). Or this one would be good!

    I wonder how many of the top tier pvpers who swear they never used it will be out of the limelight for a few weeks. i suppose we will never know for sure who were caught or not.

    say what... link please i think i missed something. Are the god rolls gone? if so... great imo, tho i feel sorry for the legitimate god ships... but it is hard to argue they are bad for the game imo OR are cheaters really complaining that FD have taken more than just the cheat rolls and not left a possible legit roll? if so, wow that is some hard face right there!. be glad they were not permanent shadowbanned or barred from engineers

    lol there is such a thing as the truth being somewhere in the middle. extremes are rarely true. its like those saying Elite is a failed game vs those who claim those who have complains are just moaners. ED ISNT a failed game... but neither are some of the complaints without merit.
