Please reconsider fleet carriers for solo players.

How many players normally get assigned to one instance? I vaguely recall someone mentioning around 30.

So for combat between two carrier-based squadrons, that's a maximum of 15 per Carrier.

Not that big.
 
How intolerant and narrow-minded. It’s 2019. Don’t you realize that competition is outdated, and damaging to our little snowflakes. No one bothered to ask any of these children if they wanted to be conceived in the first place, and since they were created without their express written consent they are OWED everything.

Sheesh, get with the times.

[/satire]
You mean the little children who ended up playing ED and asking for stuff not intended for them?
 
Sure.

But consider that the game has no story mode. The game play is player driven, emergent, so to give the players all and many tools to come up with their own trail to blaze (blaze your own trail, was the slogan once for this game) should be encouraged. The whole Elite game play is based on "Because I want to..." That's how open world and sandbox games are played.
Then want it within the mechanics or rules of the game. Or find an exploit.

If a carrier can't be owned by a lone wolf, get around it. Go find some friends and, God Forbid... form a squadron.
Or use your alts to form one just to fulfill the requirements.

Sandbox.
 
I don't think its based around PvP, much like most of the game.
Thank goodness.

I've said it, I don't know how many times, I don't have anything against PvP. I get that this is the only reason some people can get on with their lives. I'm just not one of them. It's fun for like 1 or 2 rounds, and then it's old and boring, and well, Elite, for a much time and effort has gone into it, really isn't much of a combat simulator. It's great for simulating a galaxy. Acceptable for simulating flying a ship around. Reasonable decent at simulating galactic trade, and that's really it. It's a Multi-Role Game - absolutely perfect at being perfectly alright at everything, and not spectacular at anything.
 
Yeah seems that way. Max Factor is just being max (and bless again for getting us to 50 pages), but the rest of the white knights have been unusually quiet.. maybe they might want a go too.
What makes me a white knight. Do you even know what that means?

As soon as you descend to name calling you already diminish your argument especially when it is blatantly not true.

There is plenty I am not happy about in the game.

In life, there are often prerequisites to getting something.

You need a license to drive a car. Then you need insurance in order to drive that car.
You need a degree in a related field to get a particular job.
A car club needs actual members to be considered one. LOL.

Even in ED. You need Fed/Imperial ranks to get at some ships.
Likewise a Squadron for a fleet carrier.

I'm not sure why all these lone wolves don't understand prerequisites.

I'm sure that these guys don't just get behind the wheel and onto the highway without a license do they?
Or maybe it's because they think that because this is a game, rules or prerequisites don't mean a thing.
If you have a license you could drive a motorhome and tow your compact behind it?

Im not arguing anything, perhaps only in response to you naysaying. The point was to provide feedback to frontier.

Chivalrous individuals are people too, and of course welcome. They just have a mantle of a certain uniform color and a particular persuasion in discussion.

That is correct. However you would need that license first.
Just like you would need a squadron to own a fleet carrier.

It's kinda a little inconvenient detail. But it's there nonetheless.


Someones coming off as a little child all right.
Yeah. Someones ... with the s. So many of them here asking or stuff that were not meant for them.
Why?

You haven't answered the question. How am I a white knight? What have I been doing that is "white knightish".

No, not really. It just happens to be the assumption that fits best to a narrow mind.

It's easy to assume everyone who disagrees with you on certain topics must be a white knight, because that way you can just dismiss their opinions rather than accepting how different people have different ideas.

For some people the simple fact that they don't have a monopoly on truth is so bad that they need to create an alternate reality where such things as opinions do not exist.

Nicely put :)

Appears to be a few around here who meet that...
