Something Positive for Elite / Frontier Staff Who Are Human Beings w Feelings Not Targets

Rely on the ever bitter to smother the faintest spark of positivity.
It tends to go both ways in this forum. People just can't let other people express their views without trying to smother those views with their own views, whether it's a positive "thank you" thread like this or a thread criticizing bugs. Even this thread, which aims to be positive, takes unnecessary jabs at people with legitimate complaints.

I wish people would just keep their peanut butter out of other people's jelly, and vice-versa.

You got your chocolate in my peanut butter.....
 
Wow, so the community team is doing stuff on twitter, replies on the minute to glad handing posts at them but nothing about any in game issues?

I guess we need to be greatful that they're actually reading the forums. Just hope planet zoo is going to be good because thats making the inspiration to support elite really difficult.
 
The flipside is that we're people too and we spend a lot of time and money on a game almost exclusively due to the grind design implemented and yet constantly have to tolerate disconnections, save malfunctions resulting in resetting of controls, buff/nerf cycles back and forth, old bugs rearing their ugly heads and, of course, being the beta boys because they don't seem to want to play their own game... 😉

People are more frustrated than anything, so sometimes the worst of people comes out. Sure, it should be done within reason and kept as polite as possible, however.
 
Do you have a positive story to tell about how Elite Dangerous has helped you in your life? No matter how small?

Here is mine!

I am saddened to see so many people get outraged about gaming problems / accidents/unforeseen events.. there are human beings at the other end of twitter who already feel terrible about bugs/issues and who work hard every day to fix them for us. If they were members of my family I would never say the things I have read from angry mean spirited players of a game even if they were members of my family I did not like. Frustration is fine, but lashing out to hurt people's feelings to me is just mean. I personally thank all of the members of EliteDangerous and FrontierDevelopments for all they have done to provide me with entertainment and fun.. not a nessessity of life ... you are all much appreciated despite all of the hate and attacks.

I even predicted possible technical issues a couple of days ago but that is just because I know life happens.. so I put my ship (see below) behind the Megaship (my little hauler) and was ready to push if needed. :) Keep up the good work folks.. EliteDangerous has pulled me out of the worst time of my life when suicide was my only other option... so to all of you I say thank you for being here. View attachment 131745
When you look at the complexity of this game, the number of hours that has gone into programming it, I am grateful for all their hard work. This is by far the best experience you can get in VR (I am using Oculus Rift). It feels great to escape into a choice of 400+ billion stars. The only ungrateful people I've come across are the high profile passengers I pick up.
 
Oh boy is this not an egregious example of a fallacious appeal to emotion :rollseyes:

"There are significant game-breaking bugs Frontier have not addressed or simply given a 'we'll get back you to', but please stop asking them because it'll hurt their feelings"
 
I met the wife whilst playing SWOR and now live in Sweden due to it, but past that and in over 40 years of gaming not one game has changed me nor helped me through anything tbh.


Maybe I could say Tempest “ the arcade game” got me into gaming at the age of 8 or thereabouts ED for me is just another game although the originals got me through many a wet weekend in Brixton during the 90’s. o_O
 
You comment on this.
Yet no comments about the cheating and/or hacking going on in the game.
C'mon, please be better than this.
"Oh! There's a dev post, and not commenting on any issue related thing! Atrocious!" ...
I think she commented because she recognized the name of the OP and wanted to say "hello", which in fact is exactly what the OP is about. Devs are people. In this case one of them said hello to somebody and in return is being commented on a meta level for not commenting on issue topics...
There are lots of threads for criticizing, but this isn't one of them.

And to be on topic:
Thanks Fdev for this awesome game!
 
For me personally I play the game as escapism, not for any deeper or more serious reason. I will really admit the game is not perfect, that improvements can be made. However, my approach is different to some in that rather than being angered by things I look forward to the further development coming.

Keep up the great work Frontier, I'm looking forward to the future progress on the game.
 
I had actually owned ED for some time without actually ever playing it due to concerns on the time needed to get into it. It actually wasn't until I met some of the people at Frontier through other means that I thought I'd finally jump in. Since then I've met some of the amazing (positive) people in the ED community and more of those at Frontier and totally regret not diving in earlier!
I enjoy the game despite any bugs, as all games have them, and know in time they'll be dealt with. Knowing some of the people that are behind the game actually makes me enjoy the game even more as they're amazing people and I can see the effort they go through to put it out there for people to enjoy.
 
Positive eh...

Well its a great game, Ive got plenty of hours in and while I do believe it can be so much more, it is what it is. And really Im only a numpty on the forums and I do say mean things on occasion and for that I can only hold up my hand and go, yes, Im a numpty. (Mostly, some people irritate the bejesus out of me and I just bite).

I do like that there are players who have found something in ED that makes a difference to their lives in one way or another and that is something to be greatly admired, and something I believe is quite rare in games.

And I would never get thru my back log of joe rogan and sam harris podcasts if it wasnt for chillaxing exploration and passenger missions.
 
I think the important thing to remember here is that they are human beings whose bosses have budgetary goals and shareholders to answer to.
I sure the devs are skilled commensurate with their jobs.
