Yeah they added DRM, but where does the fraud and theft of videogame software come in?

That's why I did not even bother with this shit and I think players should have known better.

Man you must be lacking any kind of awareness if you think gamers are brilliant. The last 20 years was overwhelming evidence the gaming masses are idiots

1) ultima rpgs and other PC single player rpgs in development relabelled mmo's and charged subscription

2) Valve forces DRM into steam trojan horses his way to billion dollar steam store via fraud and theft of videogame software.

3) Riot games appears starts making millions of dollars from idiot morons who buy skins in games they don't own or control

4) iphone and smart phone penetration become significant and devs release gambling games on smart phones with mtx.

5) People see all the mtx money and stop giving software to gamers.

6) Whole industry doubles down on stealing software from gamers, especially AAA gaming industry and calls it a "Service".

And you think gamers should know better? You yourself bought a drm enabled game ffs.

I feel bad for them, I never had the patience to go more than a few thousand LY of star-hopping but Frontier said quite clearly many years ago that those who strip down their ships for jump efficiency will pay for not having teeth and shields at some stage.

I like playing Elite on and off just exploring, immersing myself in space, grinding rank, engineering my ship modules, running missions, getting rich, participating in community goals occasionally etc. but the whole goid stuff has never really interested me due to the fact that it requires even more (insane levels of) grind.

Neither have I found any interest in this Gnosis community event that sounded really stupid because nobody knew what the fucking point was to begin with.
You board a megaship, it jumps to the Cone sector and then... yeah, then what... be stuck in the ass crack of nowhere as a "community event"? OMG, what fun. Not.

That's why I did not even bother with this shit and I think players should have known better.
FDev does not have the tools in place to run anything supercool anyway (they haven't done so in the past four years so why would they do so now out of nowhere all of a sudden?) so why anyone would "prepare for weeks" for this shit is beyond me.

Besides, community events are always a nuisance. People in online games can not behave. It is always a clusterfuck of shitshows. The rule no. 1 of online gaming for people who are normal in the head: Stay away from mass events. Don't be a retarded sheep that flocks to the event and then gets PKed, trolled, lagged to death or whatnot.

Or -as Mike Patton- put it: People are the worst. Fuck all that multiplayer lulzbro shit.

FDEV should have understood that people outfitting their ships for exploration would be royally pissed over having to deal with Thargoids... my guess is most of the ships probably weren't outfitted with any weapons and/or shieldless. Maybe FDEV is just trying to reinforce the "Dangerous" part these days.

The Devs said that the entire sector they were aiming for was supposed to be off limits and they found a system that didn't have a permit-restriction on it. Instead of patching it they wanted to make it a community event.

If the story hadn't leaked ahead of time I suspect it would have come off a *lot* better. According to the player group that organized the thing, something like 15 organizations flocked to where the Gnosis was stranded to provide escort duty and help attack the Thargoids.

I am not part of it, I need to get back into E:D but honestly I find it very impressive. As a consolation prize they're using the event to advance a major portion of the story apparently so it's not just a Gygaxian "fuck you you fail" invisible wall. That this is even happening in a game is kind of surprising. E:D has progressed quite a bit from the last time I played it. Not bad for a game that had one paid expansion and the core game and that's it.

The Dangerous in Elite Dangerous is for dangerously unqualified developers.
