Might be me, but for somebody who uses the "Frontier Developments" style, which is black on white, this thread is quite funny. Lighting issues are fixed.... in a posting which has a lot of white text on fainltly blue background, and thus is very hard to read. :D
 
Well the issue report itself is quite weird - you took a taxi, what gameplay did you expect?!

You're right the issue report is weird. As for gameplay during a taxi ride I dunno I don't use apex but im sure others more invested in it could come up with something.

playing an in-line version of the original elite game or something would be an improvement over nothing or just diverting the taxi to another location and continuing to twiddle your thumbs.

maybe every now and then one of them is a Cash Cab ....and you get to play some stupid mini- games for credits / rewards on a console.

just a couple ideas.
 
It's its under investigation its been started.

that column i think is for dev status....not ticket status. investigation would probably happen before dev work begins.
edit: though, being under investigation and the investigation statuses could also indicate just a failure to update the table from not started :)
