    Ingame merit leaderboard against 5c

    It probably has been said a bunch of times, probably missed it, but still... Wouldn't it be great if the Elite gave out the names and merits of all commanders who contributed in any way to PP? If it could be filtered to systems, 5c people would be exposed even from solo. Bots would have a hard...

    [30 SEPT - 07 OCT 3305] The Battle of No Cha

    Ladies and gentlemen of the cosmos, This week I have been involved in one of the most intensive battles I have ever participated in during my career thus far at the point of writing this entry. It all revolves around the No Cha system, a system known for it's riches in resources. It attracts...

    Dyson City custom advertisement icon

    In light for the rise of Nova Imperium and the failure of the purge, I thought that perhaps it could be fun to consider that such a grouping would display recruiting efforts as it needs pilots to fill the ranks after the Battle of Paresa. To that extend, I have drafted this simple image. I have...

    Why doesn't Frontier publish Elite Dangerous Comics?

    ED has dozens of interesting characters in the galaxy. The most popular ones are the movers and shakers in Powerplay. Yet we only have 1 portrait per Powerplay leader. Most are faceless individuals in GalNet news. There are thousands of people who would love to know more about their favorite ED...

    Felicity Winters and the BGS

    Being pledged and ranked with Felicity Winters offers from 10% up to 100% influence reward in controlled / exploited systems. How does this work with the per-player influence cap? Does it raise that cap, or does it mean a player only needs to do half the number of missions (best case scenario)...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 219: BGS Success & Galactic News

    Our BGS goes well for us with victory looking likely in our target systems. If successful it will hopefully act as a springboard to reducing yet more of our Fortification Triggers. We also welcome news that GalNet will stop spreading unfounded rumours about leading Imperials’ activities on...

    Does Powerplay and Crime & Punishment work together?

    I ask because I forgot to buy enough of some modules I wanted to keep in inventory. So off I went, looked at the powerplay needs in that system and followed to the letter what was required. I took down the ships I was told to, gained the merits required. Waited for tick over. Now I have hour...

    Time To Take Back Deciat!

    For as long as I can remember, Deciat (which is a major 'tourist' attraction) has been a Federal system but holds an allegiance to an Imperial leader! This is just WRONG. Are there no serious PowerPlayers on the side of the Federation? Hudson, Winters, where are you? Somebody needs to reclaim...

    Powerplay Does Powerplay actually affect any RP?

    Noob question - does Powerplay actually affect how the galaxy progresses? For example, say the factions supporting Edmund Mahon took the time to ally themselves with the factions of Denton Patreus and they started cooperating in BGS. Would the in-game universe explain it in that Edmund Mahon...

    Will, after we brought this up on Lave Radio last night (25:40) you and Sally told me that you always appreciate feedback and report it to the dev team frequently. Here is some. Powerplay needs some urgent attention. What’s wrong? The problem is not that Powerplay is boring...

    A propsoal to provide meaningful PvP So the open vs solo/private group argument has continued to rumble on and on and has so far shown no sign of abating.

    Powerplay Question about Powerplay Modules.

    I recently pledged to a power for a module, but I'm uncertain when it'll become available. I pledged a few days before a weekly tick, and it shows 5 days of pledge duration. My question is, will the module unlock at the 4th tick, the 5th tick or on day 28? (I know I need to reach rank 3 to get it)

    Mining Commodity Price & Squadrons Powerplay Leaderboard Feedback

    Ideas to Buff/Much Further Implement Powerplay

    1. Allow Empire and Federation associated powerplay activities to contribute to the Empire or Federation rank grinds for ship access. 2. DRASTICALLY increase merit gain from all sources (and add more sources) so that the merit grind for rating 5 is actually even remotely worth it for every...

    Powerplay PowerPlay in Open Or Solo

    Very, very sorry if I missed an announcement thread somewhere but I know that there were several rather lengthily (and often heated) discussions concerning the question of Power Play being Open only or not. I had assumed the discussion back and forth on this issue was expected to be decided upon...

    Powerplay Faction: Zemina Torval Cycle 182: NZT declares war on Aisling Duval

    Shortly before the tick beckoned in Cycle 182 the hobos who call themselves NZT did reveal their true intentions to the galaxy by declaring war on Aisling Duval without attempting diplomatic liaison & pushed a 5C Expansion against her highness’ assets. This dishonourable sneak attack was however...

    CQC Scenario and BGS integration (Or f2p?)

    I think a great way to expand upon CQC and the idea of 'telepresence' is the ability to join a scenario/war/skirmish/combat zone as a sort of 'hired' pilot for one of the factions. From the mission board of a station in war or neighbouring system there could be a call to pilots to takeover...

    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...

    Please fix Powerplay urgently to counter 5C action.

    So... we had a focused feedback, we saw the community split in two groups (I don't wanna say which of them was larger, really: I do not care) about the open only matter, but after Zac Antonaci's announcement there's one thing is for sure: any change in Powerplay will not happen soon. I really...

    Powerplay Frustration over this PowerPlay issue and PvE vs PvP in general

    I think most people here have the capability to choose what, when and how they want to play. So why is so much energy and effort being wasted trying to incentivize or persuade people to play in modes they simply do not care to just to play the same game? I am an adult. I enjoy both PvE and...

    Modes Mode Feature Exclusivity...AKA..."Render unto Caesar..."

    Felicia Winters for Fed. President! Okay....I've been playing for approximately 4 years now. And, as yet, NO ELECTION for Federation President? My guess was that the office of President was subject to a 4-year term at which point all citizens of the Federation could vote for the executive in...

    BGS OPEN ONLY too

    With the launch of Squadrons, I believe that this matter should also be discussed... Since Sandro Samarco mention "PP Open Only", I think appropriate to talk about the BGS too. I already generated LOCKDOWN on a system playing SOLO (I did a test to see if it was possible). After confirming...
