I see so many people posting stuff about this game. I read rant after rant of unhappy commanders. I really don’t know what it is that those guys are doing in game. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills when I read all the unhappy posts. It’s almost as if they are talking about some other game I’ve never even heard of. I wish there was a way I could give them my eyes and let them see the game from a different point of view. I’ve NEVER been bored while playing elite. I do have some theories as to why I never seem to be unhappy with anything and maybe those of you who feel the same way about the game can tell me if you are the same. I enjoy reading books for fun. I like to imagine what my commmander is thinking at any given moment. I envision things happening as a result of something I’ve done (like when someone is giving a mission requesting battle weapons I think about them unpacking them and like arming for an assault somewhere). I enjoy powerplay because I don’t do the things for merits. I’m the description of every power player it has a description. I don’t fortify systems for Pranav Antal, I ship dessidents who are causing trouble in the area. They have been imprisoned and I’m picking them up and taking them back for Re-Education. When I pin blueprints I see the engineer handing me schematics that later on I give to the mechcanics at a station and they look it over and understand what they gotta do and they do it. That’s it. That it! That’s all it takes to enjoy the poo out of this game. Stop looking at it like a bunch of gears turning and instead look at it like a Watch.
