    Is it just me being so "unlucky" or some missions are bugged and can not be completed.
    Had 3 missions in a row where i've been told to kill some pirates in next door system. Jumped there, flew for 5h finding signal sources only to eventually run out of time and fail the mission.
    Made over 4m in bounties but did not manage to find even one pirate lol.

    Elite vets and space sim enthusiasts are fine with the current state of the game.. Pretty much everyone else sees all the way that the game needs to improve in order for it to be accessible to a larger playerbase.

    I've been playing a lot recently and there are far too many things about the game that have been overlooked for it to be released out into the wild.. I could write a very long list of issues, bugs and general gameplay mechanics that are just flat out silly decisions.. Not even opinion based.. Actual decisions that make no sense for this game.

    You can like this game and still be impartial and recognize the serious drawbacks.. Just like inquisition, or unity.. I'm not a hater just because I'm not drinking the koolaid.

    Anyway, Ive been bounty hunting for a couple nights in my freagle near Sol and Barnard's star.. Almost up to 300k and aiming for a Cobra.

    Its been fun so far, and I have patience for these types of games, but even I know that people will tire of this gameplay sooner than later.. There just simply is not enough to keep players engaged.. Its like giving people a large soccer field without any nets or soccer balls and saying "here! Go and find your game..you can do whatever you like!"

    Geeee thanks frontier! Lol

    IMO i think the first thing they need to do is add more types of space stations.

    Then worry about the rest..

    What is your ingame name? I will add you?
    What is your ingame name? I will add you?
    Have not set voice attack up yet, have everything i need setup on my hotas, i will get the voice attack setup at one point though along with voice pack.
    I understand what your saying however the combat is awesome, theyve nailed it and its all i do is play open play and Pirate/Bountie hunt!

    I have over 30/1 kills now, im unstoppable in my cobra mk3 and Hotas+ Track IR. :)

    Ive only met 2 pilots that gave me a good run for my money, the rest were like headless sheep panicking in flight, they all got blown away anyhow lol. Loving the combat!

    There will be more added in the future, the game has only just been released and has many features not included that were in the original games from years ago. This is all going to change, those features and more will be added overtime. You must remember that Elite does not hold your hand with scripted missions like many other games do. Basically its up too you to make money in anyway you can.

    If you not happy with it then i suggest take a break check back from time to time to see what has been updated. I love the game, was on it until 5am this morning and i started playing at 11pm so around 6 hours. Loved it! Ill be going back on again in a minute as wife and kids are out today!

    Voice attack just adds that extra immersion. Feels very futuristic being able to give your ship commands and it obeys. :)

    Yeah i do plan to set it up, there are some nice and easy to follow guides out there. Definately worth getting Voice attack if you are limited with controls ie: No hotas as yeah your voice can control alot also.

    Anyhow im heading over to Sorbago as according to Galnet its turning into a warzone. Im gonna go over and choose to fight for the Federation, hopefully can get some more kills and can help influence the outcome of the war which can/should also influence what type of items can be traded. Reading between the lines could net myself a small fortune.:)

    Can't speak for the 52 as I have the pro.. But the Pro I can say is awesome. Feels nice and tight and is responsive.. Some people may find some of the button placement to be a bit awkward, but I have larger hands with long fingers, so its a non-issue for me.

    If you can get it for a decent enough price get the pro.. I have definitely enjoyed Elite way more because of it.

    Well as much as i like this game i wont be playing again until the iron out some important bugs. I died yesterday and lost all of my money, that is not supposed to happen. Im now stuck with my cobra mk3 and 1000cr instead of around 400k. Its either a bug or unofficial Ironman mode, either way my time has been wasted. No more for me until its fixed, have raised a support ticket.

    Aw man that sucks Vet.

    I have read about people having issues like this, but not THAT often.

    At least (and I say this to try to make you feel better) you didn't lose your ship as well.
    But yeah, this definitely will kill any will you have to continue on when you grind for hours only to see it go poof into thin air.

    I haven't played for a couple days either. I was playing for 4-5 days in a row, and then have picked up Dragon Age again, so have been playing that.

    I always find it good to have more than one game to go to when you feel like playing something.. just way easier to not burn out.

    After days of Grim Dawn, with no new content for months, I got pretty burned out and haven't played it at all, but Ive also put ~500 hours into a beta lol.
    Same with Elite.. gets old without some key things, and the bugs don't help.

    But that's kinda what I was referring to in my earlier post Vet.. bugs like that.. really sucks because that shouldn't be happening in a game that is now released :/

    Should I buy a joystick for this game? Just wondering what everyone else thinks, tried a little bit of it over the past few days and am having a tough time with the flying.

    And does anyone have a joystick they like/would recommend?

    Sucks. It's the future. Aren't funds transferred electronically into your account?

    Yeah i noticed that there are a few minor bugs however the one experienced is a game breaker although very rare. I waited for weeks to play this game while off from work and when i do get the time to play it this happens. Thing is with me im funny about broken games. I probably wont play this now for months if not ever again as my interest will wane rapidly, basically i dont have time for the bull****.

    I may just push for a refund and **** the whole lot of it off. Getting sick and tired of PC gaming as a whole tbh, i can see why people just buy a console and be done with it. For once in many many years im actually going that way.

    Im probably gonna push for a refund on ED, not saying i will get it. Game is great but i cba to wait for more fixes, more patches blah blah blah. Same old same old crap that were told over and over and over again.

    Sick and tired of wasting my time playing broken games over and over again. I will probably come back too it later on but atm im pissed at losing my stuff as i spent ages playing to get what i had.

    Kinda agree with you on the state of PC gaming Vet, especially when it comes to early access games. Elite is far from a "release" product. The problem is, a lot of people dropped quite some money on it, including you. For them to release something that's not polished is a bit cheap.

    I do like to get involved in early access games and I have done in the past on many occasions. I just don't build my hopes up about what I'm paying for. I know very well that they can fail, terribly.

    I just wish, I really do, that instead of getting all these countless releases, we could go back to a happier time, when games actually released pretty much complete. Back in the day, 20+ years ago, when there was a lot less games but when they came out, they were pretty much a finished product. There's just too much crap out there atm. Not saying ED is crap, it's a fine game, but OMG it's far from finished.

    Funny you mention consoles, some of the stuff that comes out on consoles is mind blowing. You can buy a PS4 for peanuts and enjoy some good games with no hassle.

    It's unfair to compare to how things were in the past, what we considered AAA games back then is an indie game handled by a single person these days.

    Personally i will always stick with PC gaming as i kinda enjoy the time consuming crap.
    People moan about Ubisoft, silly kids who aren't old enough to rememberer the stress that was Stalker or Arma 2.

    PC's are fun if you enjoy faffing about with settings, which is why i have zero sympathy for people who buy PC's and complain about stupid stuff.
