It depends on how FD view the game and if they see it whole or a collection of features.That would mean that Frontier really want to make the game competitive, possibly with a focus over the ability of the players to complete more difficult tasks than their stubbornness on completing countless easy tasks.
Which would be something completely different in how this game has been developed until now.
Honestly at this point I would be ok with just systems turmoiling singularly, at least we could say goodbye to 5C. But with the current game loops... Well... Powerplay will be botted as hell as it used to in the "good old days".
Powerplay was supposed to be the flashy counterpart to the BGS (which at the time was primitive) but over time Powerplay was just left and the BGS grew and was shown dev time.
Today Powerplay lives as a pale shadow of the BGS, so FD need to ask themselves "what is Powerplay for?". It would be stupid to try and duplicate the BGS again, because what audience is it attracting? FD need to give Powerplay a place in Elite now that is apart from the BGS and gives something the rest of the game does not do.
FD have all the answers, they just lack the courage to follow them through. I mean, that first proposal (the one from Discord) must still be knocking about under someones coffee mug....
