ANNOUNCEMENT Join us for the Elite Dangerous 5th Anniversary!

Hello Commanders! The festivities we have planned are largely retrospective, looking back over the last five years of Elite Dangerous and the incredible community who have been along for the ride! We will not be revealing any new content during this period.

Yeah.. because there is no content coming during this period. How about you be more open with your community and give us a detailed road map. Or this game is DEAD!

Fleet carriers, delayed, iceplanets vanished from existence.

Next you will tell us the "Big 2020 update" will be delayed until 2021. All so you can keep adding DLC to Planet Zoo :mad:
 
Greetings Commanders,

It felt like only yesterday that we were celebrating 35 years of Elite, and next week is call for another celebration... the 5th anniversary of Elite Dangerous. Since the launch of the Kickstarter, we've seen commanders across PC, PlayStation and Xbox come together to blaze their trails across the Milky Way.

This birthday is yours as much as it is ours, and we want to thank each and every Commander who has joined us since Elite Dangerous first launched! We'll be celebrating our 5th Anniversary across all our social channels, so mark the following dates in your holo-diaries and be ready to party on the 16 December!

Sounds great but a fancy paint job for a ship that most people probably don't fly anymore?? How about the paint job for all ships a player owns?

That's detrimental to the spending sale of Arx.

I'll probably kill some badies, just for the Poops and giggles, that's about my contribution. The cookie cutter CG just doesn't do it anymore.
 
I've been here since beta, It would be good to hear some game stats announced.
E.g how many commanders were created, how many systems were visited (and how small a % available that is), how many have made it to elite, how many ships have been destroyed, etc.
 
And if you'd use the metric system, you'd get even more:
a 1$ weighs 1g. 1000g = 1kg = 1000$
1000kg = 1t = 1m $
790t = 790m$
And if you change the $1 bill to $100 bills (since they all weight the same), you are looking at $79b.

And that's why we use the metric system, folks. :D
 
Yay for the 5 year anniversary, but sucks that the reward is bubble players only. All of us explorers out in the black have zero chance to get any anniversary rewards. :(

And I have to agree, the 5th anniversary would be a very nice time to give the community some details on the future of the game while we are celebrating it's past. A bit of hope would be the best anniversary reward of all.
 
While i understand no new content will be revealed it would be nice to see something related to fleet carriers. Do it FDev, give us something to tie us over.
