    "It will be very very bad for you" is designed to knock confidence of young people. However, knocking 10-20% off your deficit is free money (not bad for you) and comes with the benefit of accountable government, able to make policy without concern for upsetting French farming unions etc..

    Only if it continues to try to destabilise the UK with talk of 'how terrible for you' because, fair's fair. Actually against European law to destabilise an extisting member state I believe but Europe and EU are two very different things .. EU is a jumped up and over glorified trade organisation. Europe is awesome, and far too good for the EU, which doesn't deserve your money.

    To benefit from a reduced trade deficit? Around 1 pico second given automated trading algorithms? A political collapse of Europe would be a bigger problem (not the EU though, that needs to be reformed)

    You don't make a loss if you impose tariffs on a trade deficit.

    No doubt smart people but just remember people always have their agenda (and yes, their own high salary does also count as one). It's not Germany's fault the UK can't afford it, it's the EU's. Though I would point out Mrs Merkel, great respect to, but East German (Iron Curtain) heritage. Opinion of the West, may have some bearing? Not sure but 'open the external borders' was a bit .. weird.

    Subsidise individual exporter's tariffs; If you're running a deficit, you ALWAYS win that exchange (think about it)

    Only peanuts if your Health services aren't hitting the wall? You can only borrow to consume for so long, sorry. A £60bn untaxed annual trade deficit aint peanuts either and what happened anyway, to UK's nationalised infrastrctures .. gas, electric, rail, telecoms, free university places, the gold reserve .. how could UK ever fund those, President Juncker's new suits AND Lithuania?

    Maybe a managed exit would be, better than a revolutionary one? A problem is the EU doesn't redistribute wealth to the poorest people in the contributing nations but it does redistribute wealth in an Easterly direction, which is kind of random when you think about it. Squeeze the geese laying the golden eggs too hard and .. "pop" ?

    The EU does not want to lose the £8,000 million (nett) annual subscription, in case wondering.

    But surely in the example above the same thing happens outside of the game in the actual group, so whether it's replicated in game or not doesn't really matter. And I gave a counter-example above. If my group has a certain expansion plan, someone can unwillingly working against us in solo, doing missions and dropping exploration data in the system we don't want the expansion to go from. So he effectively wears the badge for acting against the faction agenda. That's not really fair towards all the other players that work for the faction and according to our expansion plan.

    Personally I think this sort of thing might come eventually (am a KS backer and have been watching since before release). It's a while off though because we're still in the realm of player to player networking (2.3 Commanders) and vehicle in vehicle nesting (2.2 Guardians) etc etc. Some good ideas in here below but for the time being, you can (set up your own company) 'informally' if you're willing to group with other people, set up a free blog website etc. Unless handled with some care though, the minute it gets introduced formally in game, it's bound to go on rails, and is ultimately less flexible than the roleplayed version can ever be. The more interesting people can make their groups in the meantime though, the better the brainstorm and the better any game implementation ends up being later. Show us how it's done?

    @Ramirez - Guess the only thing left to do is agree to disagree, as we'll never convince each other or reach consensus :)

    But 2.2 had bugs too when it was released! Best bet to ensure there are NO BUGS AT ALL would be to just kill the whole thing. Go back to pre-alpha, when Elite was only a Kickstarter project. 100% no bugs guarantee!

    Again - I don't want any control. All I would like to see is for members of OUR group to proudly display OUR faction's name below our Cmdr names. I'd like to be able to accept who can display that name. That's all. No faction control, no change to anyone's gameplay or ability to support/act against our faction. JUST the display of our faction's name for our members :) It's just a cosmetic thing that means a lot to us. I really can't understand why some players oppose that so badly... Does it hurt that I will be able to decide if someone can't display the name? But they can't do it now either. So literally NOTHING changes for them. Someone may say it's bragging and if you see that way, fine - we want to brag about what we've achieved over the last to years, because we're proud of it :) If someone sees that as a bad thing, fine - everyone is free to have an opinion. But what I propose has literally no impact whatsoever on anyone's gameplay.

    You are correct only when it comes to NPC factions. The player created factions are something more than JUST a BGS faction in game. They have a group of players that created history and lore for that faction, and in that sense that player group does own the in game faction. Why is it such a big problem to accept the fact that player controlled groups are part of the game now and that we DO have a representation IN GAME in the form of OUR factions?

    IMHO you then don't really understand what it means to be a part of a player group and have your own faction in game, and a feeling of belonging to something really good. I realise there will be players like you who disagree with my point of view, which is fine.

    Hi fella, you wanted a reminder to share your market data dump on Dropbox

    Thanks again,

  9. Missed your post as I was away from Ed and the forums for a few days. Thanks for your kind words. Good to see that I'm not the only one with 'frustation'. Thanks for your trade routes, I will try them, if/when I have the money for them as they are quite expensive iirc. As I said in the OP or later on I'm using slopey's trade tool atm but even that doesn't get me going. Luckily next week on the 24th PB2 will be released with a 3 systems. I guess the market will flatten quit quickly again after that so I MUST play it directly on that evening.

    I will start this evening again if I can manage it. I will keep you informed. Thanks for the offer of flying with me in the future. Would be nice. But for that to happen 'communication' must be in the game first. I think comm. will change ED quit a bit.

    Hi Wolverine,
    I just wanted to say thanks for posting your 'frustration' message on the forums. Your comments and the following replies have helped me a lot to stay calm and think clearly. I'm also PB-frustrated as an 80's speccy Elite player :-)
    I've been grinding on the Chango-Dahan route, making a relatively safe 343 profit per unit for trading Tantalum from Dahan to Chango and then with Domestic Appliances from Chango to Dahan for 79 unit profit. Not great, but good for docking training!
    Please let me know if you have any success gaining monies from the comments in that forum thread or elsewhere. I'd be very happy to fly with you into a scuffle in the future - but need to get a stick and brush up on my dogfighting skills first!

    Trader Ted (Ed.)
