Thread: So Sandro Sammarco has moved aside. Who has taken the reins then?

  1. #1

    So Sandro Sammarco has moved aside. Who has taken the reins then?

    I heard this on the most recent live stream. I'm curious who is lead designer now and what this means for the future of Elite Dangerous?

    Have any of the discussed issues that Sandro took into consideration been passed forward to the team or have they been put aside for now?

    For example, a minor, but nonetheless annoying one, which Sandro himself remarked upon. Target Lock Breaking spamming. A single commander using a couple of Advanced Plasmas with rapid fire can effectively render a target incapable of locking onto their foe. Add two or more commanders in a wing using these and you can see where I am going...

    What of all the other considerations?

    I'm very interested in hearing officially what this means for the future of Elite Dangerous.

    No idea, I wasn't even aware he was gone.

    Check the credits in the beta, they have changed.

    Laurence Oldham is shown as Game Director now.

    The only thing that held powerplay back was this retarded modes system we have where people think everything has to be equal.

    What he built was great. But we needed rules to make it work.

    I dont know what was holding this decision back for so long. But its a goddamn shame it happened that way.

    Well!!!!!

    Perhaps I'm happy to see him leave. Honeslty I haven't enjoyed any of the changes made in the last 2 years...I know that saying a lot. SOme may ask why am I here.

    Well I've taken two looong breaks for many months...and this beta exploration and mining is some of the most gosh awful tedious grdining, crawling changes thus far. If Lawrence is responsible for Beyond changes tho...things may have gone from not so good to very bad.

    Is he also being mind controlled by the Loach?

    The beta game credits don't specify so we can't rule it out.

    Game director and lead designer are two different jobs. I'm pretty sure Sandro is still lead designer.
