Last time I tried playing Elite, I logged in on three different occasions, and saw a spaceship all three times. Makes for some rather boring gameplay IMO, and detracts from what I want to do. So no more Elite for me. If I want to see an occasional spaceship, I'll search 'NASA SPACESHIP COOL' on Google images (which I do).
Thanks for doing your part in keeping open Elite dangerous. Some people stand around in the kitchen moaning about the heat, while others have the dignity to just leave the kitchen to the chefs.
Apart from bad chefs. Until someone tells them they are bad anyway.
