Haaaang on for just one moment there. Who are you and where's the REAL Agony Aunt? He would never be surprised at that!At 6 minutes. And it was an announcement about an announcement, nothing more.
9 pages of trash talk over this?
Slow news day... week... month... year...
I think the way you present that dichotomy is a bit skewed already. If you use EVERYTHING in one extreme you should be using NOTHING at the other. Mainly because what we have today is quite a lot more than that nothing. And to ask for EVERYTHING seems a tad unrealistic and unfair. Then we can discuss how relevant what we have today is, if you want.I think there are several options between EVERYTHING and what we have now.
This forum really is a mine field sometimes.I think the way you present that dichotomy is skewed already. If you use EVERYTHING in one extreme you should be using NOTHING at the other.

In addition to that, and perhaps even more importantly, you are also missing the critical time dimension. Information about future events can be more or less accurate (and therefore relevant) depending on how close they are to said events.
At the end of the day it is the de eloped prerrogativa anyways. Their money, their resources, their risk and therefore their rules.
Yeah fair.This forum really is a mine field sometimes.
I did not use the word NOTHING because then I would have been accused of claiming Frontier have told us nothing. (Although with regards to New Era that's almost true.)
I did use the word EVERYTHING because that was a quote. And it felt a bit like he was trying to put those words in my mouth, Cpt. Caps style.
And yes, asking for EVERYTHING would be a bit much, luckily I never did that.
I wonder if there’s a Babylon 5 one:Yeah, ignore all the previous doom statements since 2013. This time is for realsies.
May I have your attention, please?Haaaang on for just one moment there. Who are you and where's the REAL Agony Aunt? He would never be surprised at that!
I don’t want everything, just a little something. Specifically release dates of new features so I can request time off from workSee I just don't understand this entire 'FD MUST TELL US EVERYTHING' mentality some have here. Why, what will telling everyone what will happen in 12 months time going to achieve. If FD made an announcement tomorrow on what is in New Era, how would that effect the player base?:
So I will ask again, why should FD be forced to tell us what their long and short term plans are and what would it achieve (apart from generating more salt)?
- Some will say they are rage quitting (but we can never tell because the refuse to leave the forums lol). Not a great loss to FD as they would rage quit when the DLC drops anyway.
- Some will declare that they won't buy the DLC because of 'x' either being included or being excluded (or both with some here). Again, nothing FD can do about that, they had to make a business decision and know that they can't please everyone all the time and no one player is more important than any other player.
- The majority will continue playing, either whining about what is about to happen or excited about it. But they are smart enough to know these big changes to the game are outside of their control and they have to either accept FD's decisions or they can vote with their feet and leave.
- The worst that can happen is FD state they are planning on added 'ABC' to the game but down track find out they can't for some legitimate reason whether it be some engineering problem with either one of the platforms or Windows. Basically something outside of their control and they admit that. What happens then is the forum will erupt with cries of YOU PROMISED, totally ignoring the bit that ABC can't be done for some valid reason.
Hey @StuartGT,Thanks Stephen
Can you answer yet whether some or all of Galnet News Articles, Community Goals, and Interstellar Initiatives, are (not) returning alongside Fleet Carriers?
