Neither what I was going for nor what I understand as the scope of this thread here. This is an Odyssey Q&A with plenty of Q but barely any A. Idk, I dont find that shtick of "teasing out half-truths and conspiracies from devs" entertaining, endearing or good customer practice at all. Gives me a distinct Star Citizen vibe and that's territory I would rather not tread on ever again. Why let people ask questions when you are not going to answer them anyway, especially in threads SPECIFICALLY MADE to answer community questions? Idk, maybe i'm just too boring to get that charade, give it straight or shut the f*ck up.Ah I see. Thumbscrews?
Supercruise News isn't a specific Odyssey AMA session really. Happens weekly regardless of whether there's alpha on and in the live game life goes on, people there not playing alpha. Obviously understandable we want fast answers in alpha but to be fair Frontier have always had - what I think is probably a pretty wise policy - of not confirming anything they don't know for 100% definite is going into the game. There was incident in Kickstarter when they did, it didn't and it still comes up from time to time. Trouble is they say something is going in and it gets pulled for some technical bug or other, people won't let Frontier forget it, they 'promised' but didn't deliver!
So wouldn't take it too personally. Arf and Bruce are actually good I think at giving information and I enjoy Arf's conspiratorial tone particularly. In fact it can be a bit of a game in itself, trying to psyche them into saying something they shouldn't. The answers - to what's in the alpha - reveal themselves in the end when expansion gets released and meanwhile we're all waiting for the info, you and me both. I'm sure behind every little feature we see in the game though, there'll be whole pile of code, plus feasbility studies needed before you change .. anything. These kind of changes don't happen instantly and it's probably just as well they dont't, so really we have to give them the space to work ..
Meanhwile, hand me the thumbscrews, comfy chair and truth serum! o7
