    I think it simulates those mundane parts in balance of exciting short bursts quite well. But again, it really all depends what you are looking in escapism. I am looking for chill and those random events space life throws at me. And those happen a lot. I check out signal sources, spool down for pirate who wants taste of my hot iron, take some crazy red target painted refugees for escape... I guess I just don't find loud excitement very believable...and that what throws me of for escapism. I still need that mundane/exciting connection.

    All profits from bounties and trade get shared in wings. Wing missions are coming and they will be more tailored towards multiple players doing multiple roles.

    I don't explain anything. I didn't explain why you might not like it, or why I do like it. I explained how I play and I made a guess that it might be reason why I enjoy it. You understand games aren't really meant to be hyperanalized, as anything in entertainment? I know, it is shocking, but in reality, it is all about enjoyment. Or not. It is really your pick.

    I think I want just add to my thread WHY I find random appealing in such games. Because min maxing is boring. You do it once, you basically break the 4th wall and exit the game. You put achievements over your experience. A bit secret for all overachievers - nothing of that really matters. Some of it...ok maybe. Maximum? Not really. It's a human survival instinct asking you to hit all boxes in case one of them increase your survival rate by few percent points. Why would you subscribe to that? Chill and enjoy the ride.

    I am not trying to get "descent" mission board, I am not trying to "reload" it just to get "teh best offers worthy my time". I progress, just a bit slowly and I don't care if game appears random at nature - I just take what I can. Competitive oriented people will be frustrated at game they can't beat, and will try to publicly trash it. "This game is flawed", etc. Human mind sometimes is wonderful in it's directness.

    Two things: 1) This is the Elite Dangeorus PvP sub-forum, not the 'Forum PvP' sub-forum. Keep comments civil (ie-no calling each other 'stupid') 2) Combat logging is against the rules, and posts flaunting/admitting such actions can be moderated under forum rule #3 Carry on.

    The internet never forgets, but that doesn't mean that we as decent human beings have to hold grudges for all eternity. Everyone has off days. Everyone deserves a second chance. I've said and done some stuff in my time that I wish I could take back, too. I'm human, after all. :)

    It's dream theorycrafting. So much fideltiaaaath. They don't know development, they don't understand development, or optimization, etc. and so on and so forth.

    That's your opinion and that is fine. For me ED is exactly good for that, because it does not force aims, goals, whatever. I just play it and I progress naturally. I understand you want everything to be forced upon you in games, but this isn't that kind of game, and obviously never will be for you.

    After several threads here about grind and game I started to think what it is why i enjoy ED and why I don't feel game way some other players do. And I realized that big role in this is my casual approach to game. I play it basically when I want to relax, when I want to feel like I am space commander doing some mundane and some exciting things in equal measure. I don't play ED. I live in it for several hours, and then just quit and go on with my life. And that's what I really wanted from ED. That's why I am happy. Yes, I have ideas what I would want to acquire in game - I want to do trading with big Ts, more combat in badass Cobra, take part in some of CGs I like background story for... But they are just like real life thoughts - they are far, far beyond this or next gameplay session. Despite that I have millions, I am upgrading ships, and getting more bolder in combat.

    So much for a crabs heh.... What we have been talking again? Beyond, right :D Interestingly why people don't discuss what they want from incoming hot C&P system I wonder? That's like potential game changer.

    Few notes here: * There's no real geo loc ip based instancing - mostly they use measurements between client and server to understand how deep in woods you are. That is put into matchmaking algorithm; * There's no real other choice than AWS. They're only ones that provide tools what enables ED and other data centres struggle with pricing and tool set; * UDP is only one thing that makes game work. Without UDP there's no real time traffic. Not sure where you go with that; * Local connections are major point of pain in most of situations - lying/bad ISP ("we don't filter peer to peer, honest", or "we don't limit upload speeds", and so on so forth), ISP provided cable modems, and so forth; * MTU changes are tricky - fact they are needed means network between you and outside world does not serve UDP/real time traffic very well; What FD can improve: * Smoother upscaling/downscaling;
