    Same here Ambro. Without a Joystick and shoulders in pain I just haven't given much to it.

    Trit,

    I've paid for it and dabbled with beta but haven't got into it on a big scale, as yet. I'd like to read your thoughts on it's up and downsides before I go full throttle.

    Your experience on various games and our history on various discussions means I have to hear what you think about this, so please lay it out for me in your unique style.

    I am playing - Cmdr Kerago. Just tooled around a conflict zone for the first time, potential to be fun. Too easy to wimp out though, flew my cobra like it was a tensy with infinite flashfires and was super easy to avoid the one human who decided he wanted to target me.

    Likely going to make the plunge for the game tomorrow and then just cross my fingers they deliver on all the missing stuff.

    From the sounds of things, a lot of the missing content will be added through 'expansions' however which I'm assuming they mean paid expansions due to the distinction from content updates... so could be to get the full experience could end up being rather pricey.

    Aw shucks I thought you would have got it by now. Lifetime Expansions were a small upgrade cost with the Beta buy-in.

    Well it's not quite JG but as Tritian has said - 'It'll do'.

    I am impressed that so much of the original experience has been retained with this latest game, it feels like I've travelled back in time to the eighties and I'm back on my C64 or BBC micro playing. That said the visuals are stunning and combat, once you've got the hang of it satisfies the need for PEW PEW.

    There's so much potential for this game, a lot like JG back in the day but just like JG there's a lot of verbal pushing and shoving from the community to get what they want as fast as possible. I'm not sure ED will reach it's full potential and avoid going the way of Eve but it's a good start and feels like a game that's going to keep me hooked.

    Grabbed the game finally.

    Really enjoying it, though not sure what all the fuss about docking is all about.

    Other than finding the assigned bay (which after noticing the compass changes to direct you too became a non-issue), docking is a breeze to do with zero collisions.

    Ok I have downloaded the game but all I have is the basic combat trainer as a option. Do you have to complete that before you can go farther?

    No you should be able to join the normal server as well. In the login screen right above the combat trainer choose Elite: Dangerous and start.

    @Thor just had to do a couple of reboots to sort things out. I am currently running the training since it's been awhile since I have played a joystick game. My in game name is Skipjac

    Cheers

    I have never gotten the trainer to work. It always crashes as soon as I click on it. Nice to see you @skipjack.

    'kration' reporting in.

    A kickstarter backer for ED and with hindsight I'm impressed about how much JG has inluenced the new game.

    See you all out there.
