Right but PC gamer isn't the developer m8.



Right! I had a screenshot ready because I knew you we're going to pull a fast one, funny how I was ready to destroy your terrible argument, sick game isn't it!
Destroy what? Sandbox is also a user-defined tag for Elite Dangerous and if you read the 'about this game' section, it does a very good job of describing an open world sandbox game. It's cute that you think an argument of semantics is a worthy battle to 'destroy' in though.

No it doesn't actually, you are quite wrong:

It does says it's an open world theme park game though.

It's cute to see you can't read.

he's just butthurt he can't pay to win. its funny, his argument is flawed as if you can't spend real cash to unlock things, its not a sandbox
 
also do you see sandbox in there because I don't it says open-world, multiplayer and survival like I just said in my previous post.



You guys are quite the special type of kinder surprise, lol.
You can go ahead and keep highlighting user tags if you want to.

I said does a good job of describing one.. What is actually wrong with you? Why would you literally search to see if the word was included when I didn't say it was?

Right but those are optional, the default tags can't be edited.
Right, so we're just back to 'it's only a sandbox if the developer puts it in the description on the steam store page'?

No we are back to making sure the right definition is being used when we are talking about payouts in Elite Dangerous since the game is not a sandbox and there's no virtual outside value to credits which imply there's no negative impact to inflating the missions rewards if they have no indirect/direct impact on the non existent player driven economy of the game.

Of course, because the right definition is only the one that Eve defines with a player driven economy even though it's defined elsewhere on the internet otherwise. What a fun argument, it's like arguing about what an exploit is or isn't, Jesus Christ.
 
Yes you're right dbrn47, it's up to the developer to define the game, and as such EVE isn't a sandbox either as it didn't tag it, also, as there's no benefit to my pocketbook or rather, detriment to it, elite is not a sandbox as eve is, because I simply can't pay cash to rebuy if I get pooped on, which happens quite often.
getting tired of having to fix these things for you m8

It's important to establish the right definition when we are talking about important game mechanics. I don't care about the definition of minecraft or conan exiles they are complete different genre of games.

as such, EVE is a pay 2 win sandbox meanwhile fdev took a different approach to the sandbox and you're crying about it because (looks up at his last post)

Let's establish it then, let's look at other cases where the term is talked about:

https://www.quora.com/What-does-the-term-sandbox-game-mean

I'm sure we could find links describing it all day, but the interesting thing is, not one of them mention that there has to be a player driven economy to define it. Though of course, I'm sure it's easily dismissed because none of that fits your argument and definition of the word.

I wonder if Mojang describes Minecraft as a sandbox, even though everyone that has ever played that game does. Last I checked, no player economy, just mine and craft your own stuff.

Hello everyone,

We have just taken the galaxy servers down to deploy the 3.1.2 update. Expected downtime will be roughly 30 minutes. We will let you know on the forums and social media when they are back online.

Fixes and Improvements

  • Fixed a softlock that could occur when dropping in to a Military USS
  • Fixed missing Search and Rescue contact text
  • Additional minor optimisations and fixes

They surely don't describe it as a sandbox on the official website more like an open-wide world building game:

The sandbox term is being used in all kinds of ways nowaday.

to define sandboxes. if 1 person calls it a bird, question it, if 2 people, question yourself, if 3 or more, you sir, are either stupid or crazy

edit, if you love your pay 2 win sandbox so much, why don't you go play that instead of trying to tell us what a sandbox is, because, well, people who know gaming have called them sandboxes, because they're sandboxes. If it hurts your feelings because it's not pay 2 win, it doesn't matter because your feelings are irrelevant and on that note, my dinner is done, time to smash and then go play in the sandbox known as elite dangerous, where pay 2 win isnt an option, and you're probably stuck driving a sidey cuz u got pooped on and couldnt buy it with cash toodles

When are we going to fix the ridiculous amount of pirate kills in a non wing massacre that we don't have enough time to do?

When are we going to fix the ridiculous amount of pirate kills in wing missions in systems that don't have res sites?

When are we going to fix the non mission target pirates of the same faction as mission targets?

When are we going to fix the wing nav lock pulling you out of supercruise a day away from your wingman?

When are we going to fix the ugly npc crewmembers?

There are so many issues that you guys have been receiving multiple complaints about for since launch day you have not fixed and you all are more worried about fixing things that aren't broken.


You keep losing valuable customers, and the Ed population continues to plumet because you fix what's not broken and refuse to fix what is.

Rant over.
