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?
Fleet Carriers is certainly not part of the "New Era". The 2 being close to one another is due to the delay of FC but there is a chance that FC was delayed to accommodate some changes to handle whatever is coming in the "New Era".Perhaps there could be both. Perhaps SC 2.0 is something you could choose to kick on or not if you wanted to do something with your legs on the ship along the way, and just let regular SC get you there the slow way.
Anyway. Part of me wonders if they're insistent on launching FC before New Era because FC wasn't developed by A-Team working on New Era and they want testing. I don't readily see how FC sets up New Era, but I can see how it would exist alongside it, what with base building.
And a lot of bugs were flat out not even touched despite them claiming to have fixed them.I disagree. A lot of the bugs were fixed. That part I can't really complain about - they did say, they would fix long- and short-term bugs and they did just that, and a lot of them!
Thank you for letting us know.
I am optimistic however we will see at least two new community managers before we see Fleet Carriers!
8 days ago, Paige said during the lunchtime livestream that two new Community Managers had already been recruited and would be introduced to us soon.I see...
I confused clairvoyance for pessimism
