    Massacre Missions paying extremely low

    So i haven't played in a few months and massacre missions wherever i go are double to triple the body count for half the price they used to be. Did i miss something? I used to make bank running massacre missions now cant find even one worth my time.

    New squadron. WEYLAND YUTANI CORP

    Recently started a new squadron "WEYLAND YUTANI CORP" cause who doesn't like a bit of Alien, there are Thargoids after all. Tried recruiting CMDRs through Xbox groups, but is almost completely dead. Only four people have marked they are interested, one player has joined the Xbox Club i created...

    How big is the money problem really?

    As we *all run around worrying about money for a certain new ship that may be arriving in December I thought I'd ask how much of an issue is it, if it is billions to buy? Is there a list of CMDRs fortunes, maybe a published average of CMDRs current money on hand? If you're **mega rich let us...

    Too Many Currencies

    Credits make sense to me. Materials that are completely separate and not exchangeable with credits makes way less sense (especially those common materials like iron and zinc). And now we have Arx, which is something we earn in the game, yet it's completely unrelated to either credits or...

    Show me the money!!

    OK so who is the richest pilot in terms of credit balance and assets? I'm just curious...anyone over the 100 bn mark, over the trillion mark? Before anyone loses their s*** over this it's just a bit of fun and yes, you're right credit balance and piloting skill are totally unrelated. If you...

    "Blaze your own trail"

    This motto is hardly true anymore with everything being nerfed except for mining, and I can hardly afford to do anything without mining. Doing passenger missions could be profitable but you have to fly out really far for real profit but I don't really like doing exploration. There's not really...

    open the game up

    is this a shoping cart emulator disguised as a space simulator? imagine paying $60 to download ebay or amazon app (that might be a little hyperbolic but that’s what it feels like) nothing is more discouraging than the cash shop; the cosmetics need to be CR! this would promote gameplay and cater...

    Improve on the Squadron feature

    Hello Commanders! So I have got a few suggestions regarding the squadrons in Elite. What we have now is fairly basic, but getting a more in depth experience with squadrons would be great: 1. First of all, adding an in-game reward system, so I could pay/reward my squadron's members for...

    New Codex Statistic for Exploration!

    Hi, there. My name is Swizzy o7o7, and I've killed over 100 people in DG2 already! Judging by an average exploration mission, from my current range at a rough 6,000 LY, which is an estimated total of around 100,000,000 credits lost per person, I can rightfully say I've harvested around 10...

    Multicrew exploration in 3.3

    So I just spend an hour having my friend join me on a 2 hour voyage from Colonia to Kashyapa, being rather productive we both went on the new frequency analysis scan thing and detailed surface scanner features, scanning 40 million worth of credits on the way. And I must say having a second...

    ASSASSINATION MISSIONS QoL

    Hello Frontier Development could you do us a solid and remove the "target will be available from [x time- y time]" please this is really unnecessary, i rather making the target difficult to kill than be wasting time; specially for players that don't have 5 hours to play everyday most of us play...

    The Crisis in the Combat Job Market

    I've been playing on-and-off since launch but I haven't progressed super far. However, I'm sure it's not just me that feels like combat payouts are abysmal right now. Combat zone payouts are tiny, mission target counts are unrealistically enormous, and half the time your kills don't count...

    More Wing Mission Nerfs - AKA We work hard for our money

    The fact is, FDev has a history of failing to properly balance and incentivize both solo and especially multiplayer activities, and we have all seen this happen time and time again. Something pays too high to the wrong rank of player, and instead of redesign the mechanics of credit payouts to...

    An idea on missions vs Rebuy cost

    I personally feel when it comes to missions, you should get some sort of bonus money based on how valuable your ship is, like first, the initial price of the mission, Plus an extra 50% Rebuy cost money added. The more expensive your ship is the more money you will make through doing missions...

    What players want and think

    Just curious if Frontier tunes in to the channels on YouTube, and perhaps they could take some time and listen to what this group discusses. Because, A Lot of people think Exactly what they are talking about. Elite Dangerous is a game that a lot of us put a lot of time into, and want to play...

    Is gaining INFLUENCE of any use to players who don't care to muck about with the BGS?

    I have so far ignored influence. But I seem to get some small amount with pretty much every mission I turn in... Is there any reason I should care one way or the other? Any practical benefit?

    Buying materials with credits.

    You should be able to buy engineering materials with credits. Currently I have been flying for around 3 hours hoping RNGeesus blesses me with the high grade component I need, this is not engaging gameplay nor is it fun. It is the sole reason I am playing less and less Elite these days, because...

    Credits, Fun & Progression.

    As the titles reads. "Credits, Fun & Progression", these three things seem to be, according to a multitude of forums posts, what the player base is torn upon. Bug reports have have been made about the most recent skimmer mission farming method. People have made appeals to FDev to even have...

    Add a Loan Mechanic

    I think it would be good if you could get a loan from a factions bank that you would repay overtime; that way you would be able to rank up easier and get the ship/loadout you want/need faster. I think it would help new players and existing players alike. If you didn’t keep up repayments you...

    FDev has made Every Style of Gameplay Unrewarding and Tedious

    Elite Dangerous' update cycle and game balance is one of the most neurotic in gaming. They either fail to notice a glitch that causes extremely unbalanced payouts/exploitable payouts, or otherwise take a new fun, rewarding and enjoyable game mechanic and nerf it until it's no longer fun or...

    Make the community goals the 'gold rushes' they should be by buffing payouts x3 or x4

    So a lot of players have been upset this week by the removal of a couple or credit fountains and the possible action on a third... When one of these pops up a lot of us jump on them because we know they don't last very long. Typically everyone throws their collective toys out of the pram when...

    Cargo Missions for Large Ships: Are you happy with the current payouts?

    I'll start by saying I'm a huge Elite and FDev fan. That said, I believe some thought needs to be put into cargo mission payouts for those of us with large ships. For example, why is it so hard to find missions that pay 100 times more than the beginner missions, when I have worked my way up to...

    Frontier's Intentions

    The haphazard urgency with which Frontier handles high-credit farms is so nonsensical and strange. If it were a game like WoW where players could purchase game-time or greatly effect the economy, their methods would make far more sense; quickly fixing the issue would take priority, even if it...

    Fed/Emp Reputation and Credit Grind in Beyond Chapter 1

    So with the Skimmer Mission gold rush behind us I have been trying to look into what the best methods are for earning cash and reputation with the Federation and Empire as I do not yet have enough rank for the Corvette or the Cutter. And working with other members of my player faction we seem to...

    To FDev: A question about money and missions.

    To the game designers at FDev: After the disabling of the passenger distance multiplier and skimmer mission, the community has been kind of...how do you say... annoyed? I feel like a lot of the vitriol can be quelled (at least slightly) by a little bit more clarity in a few aspects of your...

    What's FD's definition of "too many CR/hour"? 50? 100? Where is the line drawn?

    Exploration for Multicrew - no shared credit rewards?

    There’s no payment for anyone who explores as part of a multicrewed vessel. I get the Exploration is getting some love in Q4, but it’s still a bit of a kick in the teeth when an NPC crew member is still taking their cut from Universal Cartographics and other Commanders get zip. Combat bonds...

    TL;DR: Combat seems to not earn enough compared with other activities (listed below). Is there a way of making it more profitable?

    Where are good paying passenger missions?

    I've bought a Cutter, but in order to have a decent loadout I need to grind many, many credits. I've heard that passenger missions are the best missions for that purpose, but what are my best options? I'm currently peddling bulk passengers from Rhea to LQ Hydrea, but the missions don't pop up...

    SECURE INFORMATION NEEDS DELIVERING 7 CR

    I am delivering this information for 0 CR, What good is a mission with a reward of 7 CR, REALLY!! CMon, you can do better than this. I can handle the odd 150,500 CR but 7. Bet no-one has had lower than 7 offered.
