Gragarn started a thread on Elite Dangerous a while ago in the future branch discussion. Here's the link: http://www.shadowclan.org/darkmoot/viewtopic.php?t=59646

I played this for a good while but a year or so ago. How is it now?

I'm playing it every night. I'm addicted. Its a very grindy game but I'm finding things to do. I like making credits with the ancient archaeology. There's a new commander creator and multicrew in beta. Let me know if you start playing again. We can form a wing and go shoot pirates or something.

The main issue I ran into was that everything I did got really repetitive after a short while. Have they added things to circumvent this?

Like I did trading, I had a small ship, got a medium one, then a large one, then there wasn't much else to do. Same with exploration and dogfighting.

Are you playing in multiplayer or single player?

The game is definitely repetitive, but there's a lot more to do than trading. I have the horizons expansion and make most of my credits scanning obelisks on the planets with alien ruins. I recently ran a ton of missions for the Federation and got a permit to enter Sol. Its now my home system and I gained access to the Federal Assault Ship (which I'm addicted to flying). I joined the Zachery Hudson powerplay, a whole new element that makes the game a lot more exciting. Its not just about fortifying systems. Knowing theres 10 other powerplay factions out there that can attack you (or vise versa) keeps me more alert. I also joined the Galactic Academy and the Federal United Command discords and am making new friends. When I'm not doing stuff for the federation, I'm smuggling for my favorite anarchy... all the while I'm looking for enemies to shoot at.

2.3 is in beta and should become available soon. It will allow us to name our ships and have multicrew, where we can fly together in the same ship. It also has a commander creator for making an avatar.

Anyhow, I use to play solo a lot and sometimes in private groups but now I'm mostly in open play. I've only been killed by another player once. The trick is to do your hauling solo, and go looking for trouble in open play.

Yeah I usually only did solo or friends. For trade that's definitely the way to go. I tried making a strip to the center but I think I gave in after about 10-12 hours and like 100+ jumps, lol. The further inward you go the less there is but scanning and fuel scooping Sad
