    Maybe, maybe not. Arguably their loss if they don't want to go along with the development AND the game, which you can (if you want) see as two pieces of entertainment for the price of one. But at the end of the day, once you own the game license, if people do want to dip in and out there's no extra cost to them. Yes the DLC then goes to fans .. but what else can expect?

    You're not looking beneath the surface Cmdr, you're commenting on the very top veneer. When you're completely reworking player instancing bugs are going to be REALLY nasty and when player instancing is what's being reworked, that's an iceberg; by far the bigger portion below the surface. Yes, blah blah more veneer please .... but I'd rather see a decently made piece of furniture first? (and so forth and etc. metaphor)

    I'm going to add that I feel 2.3 was probably the deepest code update we will ever see in ED. People are concerned about bugs I know but worth bearing in mind I think, what it takes (and means) to put the player into a completely different and shared, ship instance.

    I don't buy that for ONE second, sorry. We're seeing massive code updates if you care to count the capabilities added to the game engine by each update. Engineers, Guardians, Commanders might well be headline features but that's nothing compared to the forward platforming, made possible by them. I like the DLC. By all weights and measures ED is a massive bargain (no server subscription) and despite what rubbish people might choose to say about it, the BGS (my opinion) is fun to play or ignore, whatever you like. Go SRV BASE jumping if you prefer. ED might be subtle in some ways (BGS) but technically speaking, and speaking personally, I'm seeing high art in the coding. Can bet your bottom dollar too, Frontier are way ahead of you and me.
