    Blocking in Elite Dangerous

    UPDATE - Thanks to much discussion and the very simple but elegant solution posed by one CMDR, I've changed my approach to the blocking system. I've decided to use it as a reverse iron man, in that once you have murdered me, I'm dead to you. You'll never see me again, because to you, I'm dead...

    Some interesting PvP / C&P observations

    This weekend was my first serious "study" of PvP at a CG on PC, and it's been months since I've PvPed on PS4. I observed a few things, performed a few experiments, and came to a few conclusions that may be right or wrong. I'm sharing these for discussion. First thing I noticed is that when...

    Do "purple-haired heroes" scare everyone into Solo?

    This is my first CG on PC, woo! I've been "ship watching" at one of the CG stations, and the flow of CMDR trading traffic has been steady. Finally I decided to grab a few tons of grain in my Dolphin to do my part, and on my return to the system I was chased by two very persistent griefers. To my...

    PVP Interdiction question

    I recently switched from Solo/Group play to Open play and on my first day I ran into a random commander who interdicted me. During the interdiction while still in supercruise I noticed that even though I kept my reticle at the escape vector (at max speed) my "escape meter" kept going down, even...

    New Weapon Proposal

    Pirate here, roleplay pirate. After a night drinking Orerrian Vicious Brew I had a vision: We should phase out the FSD Disruptor (Yuri Grom Powerplay module) We really need the Menu Log Disruptor. Thoughts, ideas, improvements are welcome.

    Voice Comms Etiquette Community Agreement Concept

    Yes. I made a title. I'm not sure how common utilizing the in-game voice-comms is on other platforms, I know on PS4 people prefer the PSN voice parties in my circles, maybe PC is different usage rate wise. A point. I had a point. An issue in Elite: Dangerous is the difficulty in quickly...

    Players with bad karma should be instanced with each other

    Elite should keep tabs on number of players blocking and reporting a given player, and treat that as "bad karma score" (with reporting resulting in more bad karma than blocking). Instancing code should consider the score when dividing players to instances, and tend to throw ones with heaps bad...

    If you're a ganker, make sure to block lawful CMDR's using the system chat. That way they won't be able to instance with you, and won't be able to even try oppose you in Open mode. You can keep on ganking with no 'threat', it's incredible! Fly safe-space, CMDR's, Z0.

    Powerplay PowerPlay in Open Or Solo

    Modes Idea for game mode resources being non transferable

    The idea is: what happens in a mode stays in a mode. Wanna play single player fine. Wanna play open fine. Wanna play both , fine. But your stuff in one does not exist in the other. This means pvpers can't hide in solo when in their taxi ship to CG, and then switch to open when they feel safe in...

    Modes Bonus for doing CGs in Open

    I would like to see more benefits to playing in Open, perhaps a “bonus” for certain interactions like CGs and trading. Not sure how you could implement that in a way that can’t be exploited by mode switching. It shouldn’t have a negative effect on Solo, only encourage and reward Open play.
