When will I be able to use ARX to buy access to engineering?

No it's just merry fun, I'm happy for you. Hunting interceptor solo is a solid atmospheric gameplay experience. I'll have that over trolling noobs at Deciat or fighting ghosts at Carcosa, any time.

But I really think you should stop throwing ad hominems and plain lies like "the guy dont even play the gaem" or "the guy dont even own horizon" before asking people to actually read your posts or consider whatever silly point you try to give.
It wasn't me complaining about Horizons as far as I recall....
Nor did I mention you didn't play the game...

So which of us is lying, I wonder?

I didnt even coimplain about horizon, naughty liar. I said it was still not free nor directly included with the base game, making ED already pay to win.
 
If you're on PC yeah I'm sure it's pretty bad. I can't speak for Xbox but PlayStation's community isn't all that bad really. They have it so people who tend to grief other people get added bad sport ratings and wind up in lobbies with other bad sport people.
Yeah PC. Cheating is so rampant that the first session I tried had at least one of them in it. You also have to fear account bans if others add free credits to your account etc. It's a shambles, if very neatly packaged. I still adore the single player and dabble it now and then, but Online can do one.
 
I assume you mean regular updates constantly with new vehicles, new weapons, new gameplay types and purchasable in-game currency? Jk i know you just mean shark cards.
Yeah, that indeed ;)

If you want a certain plane, gun, car, or boat and just don't have the time or don't want to spend it on grinding missions, then yeah, why not? I know they stretch the grind just long enough for the casual player to buy these cards, but you know, there are heavier crimes taking place on this earth.

There was a time where I had more time than money, that time has passed. When I saw how many time it took to grind the money for some serious tools, I instantly bought a shark card, discounted. I'm not gonna grind for 10 hours to save me a €20,- shark card while my customers pay me 6 times that amount per hour. But yeah, 20 years ago I would of thought different about it all.

Btw: all in the context of GTA5. To me it felt like a grind in that game. Elite gives me a totally different experience. I would not buy mats to use in Elite, but I can imagine casual players want it, because I once was a casual GTA5 player.

How do you win a game that doesn't have levels or bosses or a story? At that point you're just paying to play. Most games are like this except for a few battle royale's

I also said that. For me as long as influence cant be bought with Arx and pvp is so ridiculously gated and optional, this whole pay to win argument is silly.
 
I'm a NOOB, yes
As proven by the following statement:
But the years of grinding to engineer a build, before new players are able to venture in to the "Open Galaxy", makes a hard selling point.
I just went to three Engineers (Tod, Felicity, Dweller) to modestly engineer my new Imperial Eagle. There's not a single G5 mod on it, yet I'm in the top 25% of the bounty hunting CG, and I even survived a PvP encounter against a far superior ship (I was able to stay alive long enough for the police to come to my rescue).

Now someday I would like to engineer my hull and get my beam laser up to G5 efficient, but I haven't unlocked those Engineers yet. Does that mean I'm stuck in Solo? Of course not! If anything, it's way easier to lose "starter" ships like Eagles or even my lovely Dolphin than it is a G5 A-rated Corvette. My rebuy costs less than it does to repair scratched paint on these "end game" ships. I also have way more fun, because my survival depends on piloting skill, not an easy-mode G5 ship that a drunk monkey can survive in.
 
I'm a NOOB, yes
I play open, yes
I don't stand a chance in PvP, damn right you are
Did I read and study the forum before buying the game, no I read the cover

With the coming expansions of the game Space-legs and Atmospheric-landings, this game will hopefully attract many new players to this Galaxy.

But the years of grinding to engineer a build, before new players are able to venture in to the "Open Galaxy", makes a hard selling point.

Unless there is a shortcut...... a golden egg for Frontier --> ARX
The game will never be pay to win, because that is what that is.
 
Most likely scenario will be for 2020's DLC to provide shortcuts and alternatives for mat grinding anyway, as an incentive te be bought by people not interested with the presumed spacelegs. And we will all give our real money to get that edge.

As far as PvP goes, you only need to unlock all/most of the engineers if you're planning to build a ship which can win fights.
I'm relieved truly. Most people here obviously want to build ships which can just loose fights.
