Point there was that IF FDev dont care about THEIR OWN set standarts being broken & going as far as to BREAK THE RULES themselves for the designed gameplay.... we can't seriously expect them to do ANYTHING about the real cheats & hacks....Bejesus, what's with CLogging again...
Just realise that this will never be an issue for FDev to care about, because... Elite is Not a PvP-centric game.
When you look at what David Braben said about the game in the beginning, MMO part was designed to be an... optional Co-Op experience.
Hacking is more of a problem, because it can have more serious implications on BGS fex, but we know that those hacking tools are made obsolete with every patch, so they try to fight it, although that's probably a fight without an end.
hehe now that would be something else , woudn't it!?Hacking so far hasn't started a nuclear war. Then Jack Palance in City Slickers said, "The day ain't over yet".
Maybe our world's best hackers could give every player account 24 billion credits and unlimited materials.
Then one could say that the game is well balanced.
The most popular Elite: Dangerous Twitch streamers have maybe 250 viewers at any one time, and that's mainly the ladies in low-cut tops and hotpants. Fat ugly neckbeard Fortnight Twitchers can easily have 50K watching. "Niche" nails it.It probably helps it is a bit of a niche game.
