    Powerplay Buying modules

    I've been power play only for the modules. I'm a few modules in so far and I'm looking for advice about how many spare modules I should have in storage so I don't have to wait another 3+ weeks later on. I made sure to have one prismatic of every size plus a couple on ships and an extra spare...

    Greetings Commanders. Officially the Cavaliers Le Chardon are the manifestation of an allegedly retired maverick Imperial Navy renegade.

    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..."

    So..."Render unto Caesar..." Since Mode Feature Exclusivity is being justified by Sandro's statement of Player versus Player style in Open, the next best course of action would be then to remove all PvE activity from Open and make it available only to Private Groups and Solo as a result, as...

    Powerplay When is the Federation having a presidential election????

    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...

No shields needed. The only crime is missing your 15 minute interval hugging break. Which makes your ship...

    How about a new Powerplay mode?

    What if we had a Powerplay mode where you can only attack or be attacked by people who have pledged to a power other than your own? My biggest issue with moving Powerplay to Open is the gankers and griefers who don't care about Powerplay at all, but just want to go after the easy target of a...

    Powerplay, Avatars, and Guardian Shields

    I see there's an explosion of threads relating to the proposal to restrict Powerplay to Open mode only: so many that it's impossible to choose which to comment on! So rather than trying to spam multiple threads with suggestions, I'll post mine here. First, a disclaimer: I'm still a relatively...

    Why can't we just have a separate BGS/server for each mode?

    What is the barrier preventing Fdev from having separate servers for each mode? Is it just too much work? I'm hoping someone can enlighten me. It seems to me this would keep both sides happy but maybe i'm missing something.

    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...

    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...

    Powerplay Powerplay Solo/Private Exploit Problem

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...

    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...

    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...
