Elite Dangerous Update 7 Progress

Again, the ‘community’ is being talked about as a single entity when it’s a mass of individuals.

Blaming all the community for the actions of a minority is as daft as blaming individuals in Frontier for the failings of the company.

But clearly Frontier failed with Odyssey, the man in charge made rare appearances on the forum to say so.
The community, as it stands, is toxic. To the point where Frontier had to (in addition to having the man in charge making rare appearances on here to apologise for Odyssey) issue a statement drawing a line on the topic of harassment and personal attacks on Frontier employees, not just on official Frontier stuff like forums or streams, but on their own personal social media spaces. Whether you like it or not, you and I are part of that community. You don't get to pick and choose when its a good time to be a part of it.

And also like it or not, the constant drive of the doom narrative helped fuel that abuse - that's STILL going on, you only have to look through this thread that's just a couple of days old to see more blanket insults of the team.
 
It is tiresome, I agree, ubermick.

We all know Odyssey was released too soon, and too untested. Frontier has acknowledged that, and are scrambling to fix it.

They have also upped the communication, which is nice.

The frontier guys were very helpful with us at EDCD (Inara, Spansh, EDDiscovery, EDDI etc) with the release, taking our feedback and adding and fixing things in the journals during the summer. No complaints from us there.

So my glass is half full. I like the new on foot gameplay. The game is still being developed. Bugs are being fixed.
 
Pretty sure someone back there suggested that all negative comments are tantamount to abuse so yeah.. it cuts both ways guys. People who have paid money and are dissatisfied about the game have a right to voice that concern and people who are fed up of hearing that do too, but let's refrain from name calling and flinging mud at each other if we can help it eh!

You know me Piglet, as long as I have my Cutters I'm pretty happy no matter the state of the game!

I have 8 of them Cutters now, and I'll take one to go to Beagle point. Only 1100 jumps! Peanuts! 53 million rebuy, fully armed A-rated Cutter, with the most expensive hull in the game. Now now, if you're a true Imperial, you'll bask in the Abyss as well. Your Cutter will be the only shining thing in the black void. I'm also very conservative as my ship sits at 34 ly range, same the first ship had who went there. I'm definetely not an asp man though.

It'll also land on crashed fedneck ships. Just because.

BAAAASKK I say .. BAAAASSK
 
to bad, have to wait for the patch next week, was looking forward to see if Support missions would be more common.
really like those to get the stuff i need to upgrade my stuff.

If the delay means they have more time to do some extra QA testing, and maybe get a few more bugfixes tossed into the mix, I see no problem with that. The last thing we need is another rushed update.
This there is a reason patch notes are published after patch is available, they try to get as many stuff in as possible.

looking forward to the threads screaming i get disconnects, purple garden snake, etc. People still after 6 patches don't get that patch day is a bad day for gameplay since everyone is online downloading and entering the game, at the same time.
 
Lol. No CG this week so the delay was, in fact, for nothing.

You're are looking at it from the wrong side. Maybe there's no CG this week, because they are waiting for the fix to come out. And they delayed Update 7 so it can include the fix.

Otherwise there would be no CGs until Update 8 maybe, which I guess won't come before November/December.

So if there is a CG next week after Update 7 has been released, the delay would not have been for nothing.

Um... They released Update 6.01 five days after Update 6.

"too much work" i heard

they might release 7.1 if things goes wrong with 7, hence why i thought the delay due to one single bug was weird to say the least.
Now no CG this week, then they deploy 7 next week and if cg still bugged, will be +1 week with that bug, then 7.1 comes with fixes inevitably, so the "too much work" just cost a week delay for virtually nothing

meh

ps: with "too much work" i mean this(so people won't come with the usual "can you point where they said exactly the words you are using?")
