Well, that was an epic failure. I didn't read the spoilers, but the instant I came into contact with other members of the ED community, the spoilers were immediately foisted upon me.If you'd rather learn about what happens to The Golconda as the story unfolds, then stop reading now, and keep your eyes on the GalNet feed.
Maybe you should ask the Thargoids if you can join them! Just a thought...Where's the third option to kill them all? Seriously how come we have to play the good guys on each of these CGs? Where's backing the bad guys to destroy or enslave the people of the Golconda?
The story has potential, but the game play is nothing new. It's not enough for me to drop what I'm doing in SE to fire up ED. I'll watch from the sidelines and cheer for the [redacted as a spoiler].Another interstellar initiative so quick! That's a welcome improvement
Yea, same happens in all MMOS. By the time you get home from work, the optimal path and party make up for a new dungeon is already decided on. All plot outcomes are categorized and mapped and people are yelling it across the channels.Well, that was an epic failure.

Never done one of those "assist megaship under attack by Thargoids" scenarios then? Then I bet you didn't know that repair limpets already have a foam spray mode for patching large hull breaches.You fly in to see a the massive ship of fire with lots of mini explosions going off, loads of escape pods floating around to rescue and transport to a temporary planet base that's been setup, see lots of domes/shelters and ambulance type veichles as you fly down to the planet surface.
Could also add a new fire hose module so some people can help try to stop the spread of the fires whilst other people concentrate on rescuing the pods.
That's the kind of stuff I want to see but will never happen.
I'm playing Metal Gear Solid now (good old days...) and I won't stop that for this II. I agree that it's always the same soup but at least this time they could put the pieces together much quicker. I take it as a good sign that FDEV is getting more reactive toward the player base.The story has potential, but the game play is nothing new.

I am a senior ranking dishwasher in the Alliance kitchen and we alert everyone of the danger to the passengers or ourselves of breaking the Gen ship's quarantine.It's explicitly forbidden to interact with any operating generation ship: https://community.elitedangerous.com/galnet/uid/5903489c34cf5157f83c8f0f
so this time there's a good reason why there can't be any interaction. What's missing IMHO is a contrasting CG for the first step. I could totally see both the Generation Ship Conservation Fund activists and people fearing the outbreak may spread to us trying to actively discourage supporting the first phase.
