    TL : DR For several months, The Alliance Office of Statistics have been tracking and monitoring up to 20 seperate accounts that have been using automated scripts for station services, flight and travel from system to system. Collectively this has been used to undermine Powerplay powers and...

    Meaningful PvP Proposal

    A regular complaint justifiably levelled at ED is that there is no 'meaningful' PvP, it has no effect on the BGS, combat ranks etc. It cannot, because the idea of effecting change via PvP is incompatable with the instancing filters (blocklist and solo/group modes). The aim of this proposal is to...

    Wikipedia statement - "No conflicts can happen below 7% influence" - seems not true 2 me, however... Info about 7% was found here: http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/Background_Simulation No conflicts can happen below 7% influence. I spotted at least civil wars lower this value. But...

    Seeking BGS oriented group with PP and casual time commitments

    I've been a player since the Standard Beta, have thousands of hours logged and two Elite ranks (though *not* Combat - I've mainly been an explorer). In spite of all this in-game time, I've never seriously engaged with the player base except in an incidental manner as I encounter people out in...

    Suggestion: Tying Mission Pay to global Completion rate

    We have this issue quite often. Commanders finds System X that generates some edge case of mission types that by happenstance give everyone doing them a whole bunch of money. They use it for a long while, and the word begins to spread and everyone jumps in. Few months later, it gets manually...

    Question on Influence Match Trigger and Pending State

    Hi, finally the BGS forum! Got two questions for which I have not found an answer yet after going through a couple of guides. 1) when we say "match the influence to trigger a conflict state" - how close should that be 1%, or an exact match (0.1%), or some other value? 2) Once a state goes...

    ANARCHY BGS

    Hello: First of all, congratulations on the game, is awesome. I mostly play BGS and I have a suggestion I think is very logic. I suggest that on every anarchy station, the black market should be closed, and at the same time you could sell illegal or robbed commodities in the open market...

    Confusion Regarding the Retreat State

    QOL: Pending and Recovering states of factions in System Map

    Currently the only way to know the pending and recovering states of a faction in a remote system is to travel to that system and open up the Mission Board. For factions with a large area of influence, maintaining daily records can be troublesome. It would be a great improvement for BGS managers...

    Please merge BGS and powerplay into one system and also either simplify it or lay out everything in a much clearer way with graphs and tutorial missions etc, I understand taking pilots by the hand is not Elite's "thing" but I think that the people who don't participate (I'm going to stick my...

    What should the Music of Elite be like?

    Should the music of Elite Dangerous be orchestrated, electronic, ambient or a mixture? I like ambient music during space travel, because it's relaxing and mysterious. Electronic sounds futuristic. Orchestrated music is timeless and suitable for most settings. It could be a mixture to best suit...
