    Restrict ALL Power Play Activity to OPEN PLAY Only

    Devs....Isn't it time to take the Kids Gloves off? PowerPlay is more so for veteran players, and should reflect that in its method of gameplay. Currently Elite Dangerous is being affected by Bots running from the PC side that effects Power Play activity on all platforms. By implementing a...

    Power-Specific Modules

    The eleven Power-Specific modules awarded at Rank 3 in Powerplay should be available in new ways. This would make more modules available to all players for Outfitting, even those who don't want to engage in Powerplay. ---- Short Version: Place the Pulse Disruptor and Pacifier Frag Cannon...

    Powerplay Powerplay

    Greetings, I thought I'd start unlocking some of the weapons and shields you receive from powerplay. Started with Winters last week, and had to move ~700 propaganda leaflets from A to B. I could get batches of 10 at a time, and then a few clicks of the mouse for 10 more and so on and so...

    Sabotear superpotencia opositora

    Hola a todos!. Tengo una duda y no encuentro solución, a lo mejor ya se ha tratado en otras ocasiones, pero llevo un buen rato buscando y no encuentro nada al respecto. La cuestión, es que estoy en un sistema donde en el contacto de superpotencia dice que para contribuir con los míos, debo...

    Automation and Scripting - An investigation into further abuses of BGS and Powerplay

    TL : DR For several months, The Alliance Office of Statistics have been tracking and monitoring up to 20 seperate accounts that have been using automated scripts for station services, flight and travel from system to system. Collectively this has been used to undermine Powerplay powers and...

    Meaningful PvP Proposal

    A regular complaint justifiably levelled at ED is that there is no 'meaningful' PvP, it has no effect on the BGS, combat ranks etc. It cannot, because the idea of effecting change via PvP is incompatable with the instancing filters (blocklist and solo/group modes). The aim of this proposal is to...

    Suggested Powerplay tweak

    Powerplay, as far as I understand, is a system that encourages player interaction and competition, by grouping players to different powers with opposing agenda. However, in the current state, maybe there is some room for improvement in this system. It has potential in my opinion, but it will...

    3.0 + Powerplay Undermining = No Good

    The new Crime and Punishment system is not tuned correctly for Powerplay undermining and has made this aspect of the game uninviting/not fun and appears to punish this type of play. - Gain bounty when you destroy legitimate opposing faction NPC – Agree - Gain Notoriety value when...

    Powerplay Powerplay Solo/Private Exploit Problem

    I have noticed an issue/exploit in the Powerplay mechanics of the game. Players can use solo/private mode to undermine expansion and fortification efforts without the victim factions being able to retaliate. This leads to the attacking faction being able to camp nav beacons and combat zones and...

    Put back Powerplay events back into Galnet

    Not really sure why these aren't in here.. but why are there no events being reported in Galnet about significant powerplay events? i.e when Felicia Winters wins Miroman in expansion or someone gets rebuffed at expansion. Stuff like that. If you want to make Powerplay more relevant, put those...

    A Way to mitigate bad actors in powerplay and enable communities to recover from poor expansions

    Disclaimer: I am in ALD and stand to gain from these proposed changes. I believe that all powers will also gain from these changes as well and that the benefit for all is more significant than what ALD stands to gain. The consolidation update was introduced in powerplay to combat groups of...

    Merits went missing after emergency maintenance (way more than half lost)

    So, this morning after the 7:00 UTC scheduled maintence window of 40 minutes, I noticed that the powerplay didn't rollover to the next week. While odd I just ignored it. I double checked my total merits for the week and my "earned this week" was around 956. Since I only needed 750 merits for the...

    Beyond Crime & Punishment: Powerplay will need a Paramilitary Activities Report or similar

    Firstly I would like to congratulate FDev on the Crime & Punishment system being introduced in Beyond; in my view it is excellent so hats off. One potential issue in regard to Powerplay though is that the current method of detecting whether a system is being opposed or undermined involves using...

    Please merge BGS and powerplay into one system and also either simplify it or lay out everything in a much clearer way with graphs and tutorial missions etc, I understand taking pilots by the hand is not Elite's "thing" but I think that the people who don't participate (I'm going to stick my...

    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...

    [Gameplay] A few suggested changes RE: PowerPlay and "Challenges"

Arissa isn't the Emperor for no reason and her goal should be to unite her people, as the...
