    its early so may be missing something but I *think* i agree..... I am fine with players being "allowed" to be a bad guy, even so far as being a serial killer and an enemy of humanity as would be the case with the current CG......... but the consequences of this should be logical. fight to get a CG to allow access to anti thargoid weapons to fail, you dont get access to the weapons - not for ever, players CAN change play style, but it should be for a period of time that players do notice. i am with you on the ai, in all cases. CZs can get sticky but aside form those even with my sensible ships (i do not do the invincible builds) it would take a series of errors on my part to get destroyed by AI (I have still managed it on a few occasions however) but if anything it is becasue the ai are so weak that i got complacent and got destroyed when i did.... so i am with you there too. it is actually not the indiscriminate player killers which annoy me (ok i admit that do... but it shouldnt be becasue they are...

    There are some players who don't want stronger ai but plenty who do. That said no one has yet given a logical reason why the PF would be happy about it's members trying to block a mission to potentially save the whole of humanity. Also imo FD need to write into the CG that those who contest a CG should not be given access to the benefits of a CG for a significant amount of time after. IF players want to be against a CG they should own it. Also once a player is raggedy hostile to the goals of the CG their contributions to it in terms of their reward should be voided. It's not players fighting against a CG which cheesed me off. It's players fighting against it then still expecting to be rewarded and to share in the spoils if if successful. It's pathetic really.

    I disagree with this because you'd know - from the CG blurb - what you're signing up for and this CG may or may not be for you, so on and etc. so I'm a +1 on the OP and I think it'll come. I hope so. When a CG gets anti-CG players camped (they don't always) that's the time to call SDC as things stand right now imo - and get them to 'gank the gankers'. I think anti-CG play is a good thing in principle though .. it's justvolunteers to militarily hlep the CG to succeed are thin on the ground (are there no white knight PvPers?). So basicaly 3 concurrent CG's - (1) the CG, (2) kill the CG and (3) defend the CG. That's not negligible to program though .. (notably, the 2.4 pilots-federation-bounty mechanic, could allow Frontier to count relevant PvP kills for it, and it could be just a standard add to all CG's I think, imo, and technically speaking).

    1 sensible (by that I mean logical) solution IF FD keep proper metrics... Once the CG is done those who took part get discount on thargoid weapons. Those who did not get involved get access but not at a discount. Those who are considered enemy of the state or were fighting AGAINST the CG don't get access to the weapons for 6 months. As I have said before. Want to RP a bad guy, fine , but surely no one would expect access to new, limited supply equipment if they went out of their way to stop it being made. Anything else is surely hypocrisy?

    It's a separate but very good point. Its a bit gamey but maybe payout of bounty should be split depending on percentage damage done. That way no kill stealing (against cmdrs OR AI)

    Screen resolution. Is limited but it is the difference between playing a space ship flying game and flying a spaceship. It is jaw dropping and is the only way I have played ed since June 2014. Check the vr forum. Someone maybe local to you to try it (15 miles from Cambridge UK if you are near me)

    I can't play on single screen, I am rubbish. In VR however I feel I am quite capable. Of course it's all what you are used to. If I was not used to vr and had not made a control setup for it I would be ok. Advantage wise I reckon vr is like a 3 screen setup with head tracking...

    Actual piracy is an officially endorsed play style it's not fair to lump them in with griefers . That said before you quit consider joining one of the PvE groups (it's what I did)

    And yet you bought the game.... The modes are core to the game. To lock CGs to open or increased their weight in open would remove content from players for no good reason. You bought a game with the modes and equal input into the bgs and economy. It's not my fault if you did it in ignorance. I could just as legitimately suggest open had to go, it's crippled the core design and creates too much salt. (I am NOT saying that)

    Yep I did... Despite its PvP but it was to a far lower level than ED.. and I am very very close to cashing out tbh. The PvP slider and vr support were key to my pledge. Not to mention you seem to forget SC is 2 games. S42 is my last thread of interest in the game. No PvP tjere

    Except how many of those sales were made when there was a PvP slider (which has been removed since) (answer is many of them). But this is moot. Everything about SC is geared more towards MP and. Potential for PvP. It is how it is marketed . I did back SC DESPITE this as S42 is not PvP.. but I went in with my eyes open. I would never be so rude as to demand PvP be stripped Dr the game or remove PvPers ability to access content.

    Lol no way to prove either way. 2 things we DO know. The majority of people do not bother with PvP and this commander posting here would not play if it was open only with PvP. You maybe speak for yourself and a small number you play with but you do not speak for the majority. (Neither do i)

    No they shouldn't. People should take responsibility for buying a product which does not fit their needs and stop trying to screw over other users. Optional PvP goals in a CG for this who want them.. fine, what ever but you need to drop this notion that open is in any way more important than solo or PG. Alternatively a solo/PG only separate CG which is essentially the same as the open only one. Signing up for one bars you from signing up to the other but both groups get a CG to contribute to without interference from the other

    Just so long as it is purely optional and cgs can still be done in solo or PG I am cool with that.

    You could just fly a sindewinder around until you get bored and then try the next ship up and repeat Cos you donit need a reste partial or therwise to do the stuff you want too. You dont need to reset to fly a bog standard ship and work you way back up. Just make a not e of the credist you have got now and dont spend them, just use what you have after that point.

    The current CG is a perfect example of how stupid it is. The CG is to potentially prepare humanity again possible war for its existence. No human should be opposing this and for the odd (roleplaying) nutcase who does there should be no place for them in the pilots federation or in any system controlled by humans. They are war criminals in the worst possible sense fighting against their species. Should they be allowed to do it? Ok... But don't then expect to be treated with all the luxuries of a PF member. It is practically impossible to role play in any sensible way with the game working how it does.

    On one hand I agree dirty logging is bad, on the other hand open was NEVER mean to be consequence free blowing up ships. It flies in the face of all logic. PF has rules regarding its members attacking other members without a legal reason. Insurance company would not pay out billions due to a handful of criminals they would react accordingly. Those who blindly say don't like PvP get out of open (and the follow up by calling those who DO get out of open cowards for hiding) are ignorant of the fact elite dangerous was never meant to play this way, not according to DB anyway and he should know. The idea was you could role play psycho if you wanted but be prepared for consequences.... It was never supposed to be the most brainless simple "role" in the game. The fact you compare to Street fighter 2 speaks volumes. That is what CQC was for. An entire point release for those who want consequence free pew pew. Until this is put right I find it hard to shed too many tears for those just wanting open to be an arena...
