    If you don't talk than what are you doing in there? If you don't even give an explanation whatever brief it will be than how the hell you think we going to take you seriously?

    No, he is trying to get you to be consistent. It appears as though democrats who lie should be investigated. But republicans who lie, collude, and try to profit from it are perfectly fine. You're apparently judging someone fit to rule on the basis of their party affiliation, not on the basis of their behavior.

    I think it's time to give that one up. The UK has, with astonishing speed, aligned itself with the United States and the Trump administration. It will be signing on as a de-facto 51st State only without voting rights or power. We've seen signs of this already in the past few days. The other EU states are resigned to the process and have considered the opportunities it presents (interestingly enough the UK will be the only current EU member which will not benefit at all from Brexit), and they simply do not trust the UK after this. I don't think it can be halted at all at this point. Some in the UK are still labouring under the obvious delusion that anyone outside the UK is taking the country particularly seriously at this point. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/brexit-eu-negotiator-europe-euratom-airline-safety-negotiations-theresa-may-worse-anyone-guessed-a7858586.html

    Eating is pretty repetitive, and yet people keep doing it. Some crazy people even think it's fun. But more to the point, the current placeholder mechanic is about as repetitive as it gets. And it's so non-existent that elicits 1 of 2 possible responses: 1) Boredom 2) Passive tolerance of a minimalist mechanic It seems your primary argument against a new mechanic would be that it would break from the current bare bones placeholder and have too much gameplay. So much that it might actually be noticed. Well yeah... I certainly hope so! But I am one of those crazy people who likes to notice the flavor of my food.

    Indeed!! Again, why send a probe that can't transmit data to a surface that you're just going to have to go down to collect the data? Why not go yourself in the first place? Nah. Probes are only fun if they're manual, or being sent off to their doom inside gas giants black holes or Venus type planets. Or both. Otherwise they're just middle-men, or automated ways to sap yet more gameplay away from players by replacing us with AI.

    Too much grimness in this thread. Let's look at something more fun that we can all have a good giggle at. Enjoy!

    I think it's important to draw a distinction between "managing time" and simply "playing the game". If your goal is to have fun, and the scan mechanic turns out to be fun and engaging, then managing your time will simply be just playing the game until you're done for the day. Currently we interact very shallowly with the systems we encounter, and rewards are relatively low compared to other deeper activities. So it makes sense to just blow through as many systems as you can in a day. However, if every system suddenly becomes more interesting (even the iceball dwarf star systems) then you don't actually lose anything by having a more engaging mechanic, except maybe yourself in the process.

    They are the children of immigrants, but they themselves can't be considered immigrants for any other purpose than statistical analysis of population trends. They certainly aren't immigrants as we understand the term "immigrant" in common usage, which revolves around the international movement of people. Half the people EDF and Leave UK want to "repatriate" have been born and raised in Britain and never even left the place to go on holiday.

    If they are did not integrated to our society from the first to (any number) generation, furthermore by the creation of their own cultural and national / religious ghettos (no go zones) than yes there is such thing as second generation immigrants. Language religion? they are free to keep, but when they are trying to take over our world from the inside? How do you call of that?

    There is no such thing as a "second generation" immigrant. If you move from one country to another, you're an immigrant. If you are born in a country and stay in that country, you're not. Did you not actually look at the infographics? Jordan, which was a small and aid-dependent nation, has millions of them. The population of Jordan is between 10% and 20% refugee. The Za’atari refugee camp is now their fourth biggest city. And you're whining over a few thousand?

    Fair point. A lot of people are finding casino-RNG distastful, and a lot of people also want skilled/involved/deeper exploration mechanics. Yet some other people are also suggesting dropping probes (as if that were somehow different than hitting a honk button, eg one-button-press mechanics). Personally I think the whole Probe idea makes the mistake of kicking the can down the road and only exchanges the honk button for a deploy-probe button. There is no added gameplay value from probes. The only cool thing added here would be a probe launching animation, and maybe a passive readout. Now if there was an active readout, were the player used the probe as a manual sensor, that would be something, but why take the extra time-sink step? Why not just use ship board sensors and ship-board readouts? The only added-value gameplay reason I can see to add probes would be to send them places we couldn't or didn't want to go, like black holes/neutron star/white dwarfs, or superfast probes that could...

    The EU has a population of 510 million. If 5 million arrived each year that would represent less than 1% increase in population. Hundreds of thousands should be easily manageable. The issue isn't capability, The issue is a lack of humanity, an abundance of racism, and oodles of stupidity. How much do you think this mess will eventually cost the entire world to fix? You can't just shut the doors and pretend the world outside France isn't real.

    You're missing the point, I suspect deliberately. There is no "invasion". There is a dereliction of humanity on the part of Europe. That's ok. If people are racist and hate the sight of dark skinned southerners walking the streets of Europe - they should say that and not pretend there is an "invasion". If someone has seen too many Daily Mail articles and now wet their pants in fear whenever someone walks past who looks a bit foreign - they should say that and then seek treatment for their phobia. But to call this an "invasion" is at best terribly mistaken and at worst incredibly dishonest.

    Right, keep talking rubbish until the next serious terror attack what cannot be denied because of the magnitude. After that for a few weeks you lots going to be too ashamed to keep saying nonsense. And because of this? We just not giving a damn anything you have to say. The marks and consequences are just too serious. And also? It's useless to deny it's seriousness too.

    Why "unfortunately"? The future of exploration looks bright, and there is plenty of time to get old and new people back into Elite. And tbh, it's not like the game is hurting for players atm. The galaxy is plenty lively. Tbh, my only worry is that exploration will entice so many people to leave the bubble that meeting people in Open will be a chore. But if they fix Multicrew networking and benefits, and/or give some faster travel options (via thargoid tech etc) then it won't be a huge issue. And perhaps more significantly, if they make the exploration mechanic compelling enough, then simply going to nearby unknown systems, and even known systems, should be fun.

    Um Jason I think you have it backwards man. While I agree that the lions share of gameplay lies inside the bubble, the lack of gameplay out in the Black isn't the fault of Explorers. These guys signed on to dive into a huge swarm of stars and go where no one has gone before, etc. It shouldn't be on them to "realize" what they are missing in the bubble. It should be on Frontier to provide the gameplay and content that their players actually want. And to my thrill and delight, they are finally doing just that :D Granted I was one of those lucky Explorers who were able to make that transition into a BGS/Combat pilot, but that was a personal compromise I made, and was fueled by my passion to explore too, but this time the inner workings of the game itself.

    Sort of difficult to refute one's own words... Jay Sekulow might sympathize. Things seem to be relatively quiet these couple days, after the sequential artillery bombardment of press revelations about the 8 person meeting. Now it's all about the political pressure on Sessions. The spectacle of the President demanding that the Attorney General disregard the law and indeed, break it, in order to resume his position as a personal umbrella against investigations into the President is making no waves. But it is further evidence of Obstruction of the investigation, and of the fundamental illegality that underpins this administration. I hold no water for Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, the lawyer who failed to be a judge, myself. But isn't it amazing to see how quickly he's getting betrayed. The rubes that believe in Trump are getting yet another clue. Of course, they won't get it.

    Really? Your own posts indicate that you don't actually care whether or not Trump broke the law, you only care that he "wins", whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Nope, utter rubbish. Europe is about as stable as you can get on our troubled planet. People panicking about "teh Afrikuns and ayeraabs" should speak with a paychiatrist about their anxieties.
