    Combat to easy now?

    Hello everyone, When I first started alpha I found combat impossible then I learned how to play and it became just difficult but not impossible. Now in phase to I find combat very easy and the NPC can die very quickly. Im not sure my thoughts on this. I like knowing I can complete most missions...

    Where is the long range shooting ?

    When it comes to open world fps games with a bit of strategy there are three that come to my mind. The ghost recon games, arma 3 and planetside 2. In all of those games, engagement range for infantry goes up to 400meters at least , let's say 500 meters for reliable shooting without going prone...

    Things I like and don't like about Conflict Zones (Long read)

    I've tried out a few different conflicts over the last couple days. Even tried PvP a little. I figured I'd share some thoughts on things I've noticed. I'll start by saying that I've played a lot of shooters in the past, both competitive and casual focused. Not that I'm a huge expert, but just...

    Low RES site has too many security ships?

    o7 all I'm trying to rank up my combat and some empire rank at the same time, and trying to do combat in the Mainani system at a low RES site, but there are far too many system defence force ships? I've never seen so many security ships in a low RES site before anywhere. I dropped in to the...

    Newbie Guide to FPS Combat in Alpha

    I am not very good at FPS but I have started completing combat mission in alpha at least some of the time and I wanted to pass on my finding to everyone else 1:) Combat in the game is very hard even at the low levels. The AI has good intelligence and will not just let you shoot at them. They...

    NPCs are unkillable

    It's funny how I thought that after buying Maverick and a primary weapon, NPCs would not be a problem anymore. But I find myself respawning at home because even on threat 0 missions, they destroy my shield in matter of seconds, and I can't get even one bar from their shield... This has become...

    Oddysey's weird combat

    Why are the weapons making noises in low/no atmosphere environment (no carrier for sound waves). At least the voice notifications should be louder, because they're from the inside of the helmet (like combat used tactical radios by hazmat or military teams?) Edit: You could say that some of the...

    I might have figured out some interesting combat mechanics… (claiming its discovery)

    However this is too much fun, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone else who might come across it. If this isn't discovered by anyone else until the end of the Odyssey Alpha I'll reveal it then. To claim it, this is the SHA256 of a text document in which I describe the mechanics. The reveal...

    Fdev.. Can we have tanks?

    I know that we aren't getting any new SRVs, ships etc. But with the addition of a combined arms style system in odyssey we need more vehicles, some modern day examples could include... Tanks: T90, Abrams, Leopard 2, Challenger 2 Anti Aircraft vehicles: Stormer, S400, Patriot Etc. My point...

    Hot Take - Consent to Risk, Ship Abilities, TTK

    Hello forums, Disclaimer of wall of text.

    Soldiers of fortune and combat pilots wanted for the 405th Gila Raiders

    The message had been short and to the point "You have been recommended for a position with the 405th Gila Raiders. Meet us in orbit of the third planet of the BD+33 801 system at 0330 UTC." There was no identifier no traceable sending code. Nothing just the location of the meet. You had...

    Newcomer / Intro Interact With Hub Missions

    Hello Question please... I am not really into doing general missions, unless they are required for something, but I'm kind of bored and have noticed something that, seems to me, to be a new requirement for some missions, a lot of missions actually in the "Assassinate" category at least. So...

    CQC Reloaded: Features and Improvements. Tod McQuinn Approved!

    It's probable that my original post on Reddit hasn't gone anywhere because the ideas are bad and misguided. Or it might simply be that the general Elite population has written off CQC as a dead feature that should be left alone to die in peace. I am hopeful that once Odyssey launches some TLC...

    Manual Reload

    It's 3306, almost 3307 why on earth is there no manual reload. It sure feels nice to fly in my vulture on the last shot of my clip knowing I'll have to reload after one shot. Even if you had to eat a longer reload time, I'm only hurting to use it between engagements so I wouldn't even care.

    Battlecruisers a bit weak?

    So I know battlecruisers in ED are a cross between carriers and combat ships, but I still feel their armament is a bit weak for how big they are. I feel like when one of these ships decides to focus fire even a Type 10, it shouldn't last quite as long as it does now. Maybe give them hardpoint...

    3rd ever Thargoid "Octagoid" Kill - 8 thargoid interceptors at once

    Overhaul combat by bringing missiles into the fold.

    Combat in elite has gotten a bit stale and easy. Instead of changing anything about the AI or the jitter or the thermals or whatnot, we need to look at missiles. Right now missiles are kind of pointless. We need to up their capacity and their damage. We also need to give players a...

    Firstly I do love this game, however I have become very disillusioned with what currently is on offer. After playing all of the previous incarnations across nearly every platform and backing the original kickstarter it has become yet another general building simulator, similar in many ways...

    Balancing PvE combat payouts for both new and Elite players

    To the Dev Team, I have played Elite for a long time now, and something I hear a lot from other players is that they would love to be able to earn money doing all the activities the game has to offer. Currently, the fastest way to earn in this game is by mining, and the one of the slowest ways...

    Heatsink ammo reserves: the ultimate cause of mankind’s defeat by the Thargoids(?)

    I tried to make the title not-completely-boring. Anyway, could y’all sneak a quick bump to heatsink ammo reserves into your next patch? Or...the one after next, if the next one is already planned out? For one thing, it’s irritating how (after engineering) heatsinks come in packages of 4, but...

Long story short, I went on a big expedition to colonia in my on my jump build anaconda, and when I got there, I'd figure I'd stick around and see what there is to do. I had my Krait MKII shipped out there to do some bounty hunting...

    AI Pilot update

    Trying to fight thargoids alone .... got idea about AI pilot. Currently AI is classic for any MMO game - attack/assist/stop/follow. Well, it's a bit old already.
