    Ok, thread reopened.

    Let's all remember to play nice and keep politics off the forum.

    Can we get a clarification from FDEV that Open only PP is still on the table? With Sandros relocation many are wondering?

    At this point, I just want to know they have some kind of plan for PP. At all.

    Having just gotten immersed in PP Iíve only fully realized how broken the system is, also how PP is on the verge of being abandoned completely with droves of players looking elsewhere. We were totally streamed hauling in OPEN with moderately engineered Cutters Wednesday night using techniques and tactics we know because we are predominantly pvpers. We were interdicted we low waked away we basically kept going all night through PvP blockades and no escorts. It can be done and if the ships opposing are equipped better then player escorts become a thing.
    Wednesday night was actually interesting for once instead of mindlessly hauling only to watch a PG driven opposition overtake you 15 mins before tick and have absolutely no way to oppose it.
    In this current situation itís simply a case of the power with the greater numbers will always win if other players cannot oppose them in other ways.
    We know from numbers that this power has 15-20 fully loaded cutters stood on pads in numerous pgs who simply just all turn in in the last 15 mins. Does that sound a fair system? Probably to the ones doing it it does. I hope and pray FDEV realizes this is what is killing this game for many.

    And you'd be justified in expecting this after all the noise that was made for it. As ever, FD communication noticably absent from the conversation.

    Agreed, some kind of announcement is well overdue.

    It's absolutely mind blowing that PP has not been changed to open only yet. I have never read a good argument made against this change, and I've been pledged to a power since day one and were among the first to request for this feature change years ago.
    I am 100% positive that E: D would massively increase it's playerbase with this change to never-seen-before levels.

    There is so much untapped potential in features and gameplay there for all ship types and loadouts. With small additions on top of that surrounding planetary interaction and merit gain from different war efforts etc, you'd spark the game with such involvement and life, you could maybe hire more folk and create the game you love, faster.

    So many different tactics to employ from stealthy scouting to all out assaults. So much more meaningful winging up even to just fly around looking for trouble - now you will never find much PP related, because all offensive and defensive efforts are done offline with very little risk. And it's war for standing, what wouldn't you do to win? I'm sure trolling these threads is one of the tactics employed by the people who enjoy 5C and returning merits 15min before cycle ends, because it's what keeping them at the top. And it's all good, we can argue it here.

    The problem is the inability to meaningfully counter offline players' efforts, which makes the only involving inter-bubble war in the galaxy a grind match, week after week, instead of a shoot out or a carefully executed plan... That's just no fun. It's the ONLY reason why I don't spend all my spare time playing E: D.

    To me it just seems such an obvious change that I can't but believe that it's only a matter of time. Better sooner than later, though.. it's long overdue.

    Hmm has it? Last I recall I can’t multicrew or Wing up in solo. I guess features have been locked to certain modes. It also was only said that at this time it was just a discussion. They however, did not confirm it will not be going open only or if they won’t or aren’t considering making changes to PP. so why don’t you off in X4 where you can have an entirely solo experience?

    I'm sure FD would be super happy to have all their solo players leave the game.

    Just responding in sarcasm with a comment of similar ilk to the one I responded to.

    What's the saying " a eye for a eye will make the whole world blind " Mr.Gandhi I think

    Could I suggest less 'sarcastic' responses in the future? Telling people to .... off is not going to promote a good forum experience, for all parties.

    That would be great.
