FDev, be honest, is this just a desperate attempt to preoccupy us now that you’ve completely removed two mission types and still haven’t un-nerfed the KWS?


As others have said, this should have been available on the forum too but I understand the decision behind it, social media publicity and all that. But generally speaking this is not that kind of community IMO.

I shouldn't be so intolerant, but I really, really loathe twitter and facebook as well. Count me out. From reading the above replies, I guess I am not the only one. No wonder I love this community.

Why do I slam social media? Instead of looking around at our amazing, precious Earth, people are bent hovered over a mere technical device. Actual people pass them by, adorable puppy dogs and kids... no acknowledgement.... sad. Yes, ED is also virtual reality; however, I started playing Elite to gain a further appreciation of our incredible Milky Way Galaxy. ED has done just that; I now know a little bit more about stars, planetary makeup, and have a better appreciation of orders of magnitude. And Datamined Wake Exceptions..... ACK

So the FD marketing team be like...

Well, we need to sell more copies to hit the quota...

Time to motivate the masses and their social media accounts!

Meh, I don't mind tbh.
