    How many of you did Thanos snap away?

    It just dawned on me that at least 50% of the galaxy's population, if not more, have been "snapped away" by Odyssey today. For example, when I briefly logged into Horizons, my friends list showed EVERYONE as "ED: Odyssey". Meanwhile I'm in "Galaxy Prime" (Horizons) for the foreseeable future, a...

    Powerplay How is Powerplay not open only yet?

    It's clearly a PvP game mode where players choose a side and fight for terretory. So why is it allowed in solo, where you can't defend against someone undermining your system, or can't attack your enemies fortification attemtps. It would be a lot more interesting and fair if it was open only...

    Just survived a gank attempt for the first time!

    07 Commanders, I just survived a gank attempt for the first time. I was headed for the new federal CG and wanted to pick up some medical supplies in the nearest system to Duatma. I quickly saw a few other CMDRs on my radar, and sure enough, I was soon interdicted by a hollow triangle. Luckily...

    Continuous play in the Open is more risky hence should be rewarded

    Hello CMDRs & Frontier Development Team, Background: I'm a rookie to Elite Dangerous. Even though I purchased it some time ago, I was rather an occasional player. Now that I've got more time to go deeper into this marvelous spacefaring world, I hope that I can offer my fresh eyes to the...

    Make the risk / reward of playing in "Open" sensible for newer players, our community is too small to be divided

    The Elite community is small enough as it is (compared to other big titles out there), and I think it's a shame that rather than adjust game mechanics to adjust risk/reward of being in open, Fdev instead provides ways to divide the community (solo, private groups, etc) who likely would rather a...

    Community goal but for encouraging Open play and PvP

    Change 'solo' into 'open without pvp damage'.

    I think that people are mainly in solo to protect their investments, not to get away from people. By changing the options to just Open and Hardcore, it would probably help the community aspect of the game, player groups, and squadrons, but it also might help the servers, right? Instead of...

    How Open-only would balance ED

    Disclaimer - I am NOT advocating for Open-Only, I'm just making an observation. Today I decided to join the Tritium Truckers, in hopes to make some meager credits to help me slowly progress to my goal of someday owning a fleet carrier. The best prices were between two outposts, so I configured...

    Similar to how the shelters has an 'open all' option, could we have the same but for our gates? This time however, it will prompt up a message asking if this is something you actually want to do twice, in which upon answering yes to both, not only do the gates open, but have that sabotage...

    Blocking in Elite Dangerous

    UPDATE - Thanks to much discussion and the very simple but elegant solution posed by one CMDR, I've changed my approach to the blocking system. I've decided to use it as a reverse iron man, in that once you have murdered me, I'm dead to you. You'll never see me again, because to you, I'm dead...

    Some interesting PvP / C&P observations

    This weekend was my first serious "study" of PvP at a CG on PC, and it's been months since I've PvPed on PS4. I observed a few things, performed a few experiments, and came to a few conclusions that may be right or wrong. I'm sharing these for discussion. First thing I noticed is that when...

    Do "purple-haired heroes" scare everyone into Solo?

    This is my first CG on PC, woo! I've been "ship watching" at one of the CG stations, and the flow of CMDR trading traffic has been steady. Finally I decided to grab a few tons of grain in my Dolphin to do my part, and on my return to the system I was chased by two very persistent griefers. To my...

    PVP Interdiction question

    I recently switched from Solo/Group play to Open play and on my first day I ran into a random commander who interdicted me.

    New Weapon Proposal

    The idea is: what happens in a mode stays in a mode. Wanna play single player fine. Wanna play open fine. Wanna play both , fine. But your stuff in one does not exist in the other. This means pvpers can't hide in solo when in their taxi ship to CG, and then switch to open when they feel safe in...

    Modes Bonus for doing CGs in Open

    I would like to see more benefits to playing in Open, perhaps a “bonus” for certain interactions like CGs and trading. Not sure how you could implement that in a way that can’t be exploited by mode switching. It shouldn’t have a negative effect on Solo, only encourage and reward Open play.
