    How do you play videogames?

    Silly question but I am curious how other people play video games. I do not only mean by the platform of choice but what videogames mean to players. Is it a quick entertainment for brief periods of time, or is it a dedicated part of your lifestyle in which you can not see yourself not playing...

    Play Modes, Solo/PG/OP

    I know this has been said a thousand times before and I know I'm going to attract controversy for saying it but if I don't say it, how will Frontier know it's something I and likely many other people invested in the background sim would like. Gathering feedback in my gaming community for why...

(I feel the need to point out these home truths as noone on the other postings will even reply to my comments.) BGS is both a PvE and PVP activity, in such that...

    I had a big day today, I flipped a system to my favoured (NPC) faction. ED Bucket List Box ticked, it was months of work and I'm pretty pleased with myself.

    Not enough "action"

    First of all, I know that Frontier will most likely add more animations to the game (hopefully soon) So far, I really enjoy this game, despite of all the criticism. But what I have noticed is, that the Dinosaurs really don't do that much. They gather themselves in small groups every now and...

    Powerplay: Diplomacy screen to vote for who is a Power's Allies is needed

    The hard coded Powerplay allegiances no longer reflect how the game is being played (eg Yuri Grom is an ally of the Imperial Powers but the game does not recognise this). As such imho there needs to be someway for those pledged to a Power to change its diplomatic status. It would therefore be...

    I am a PvP player. I do not and never will apologize about it. Yes I would love to enjoy all other aspects of ED but the way I see the game, the only one thing that is fully developed are ship vs ship battles. That is the meat and bone of this game. Every other activity is only a filler for me...
