    • An update on WP8..  some players have expressed concern that if they don’t make the jump to Goliath’s Rest, they will not be able to have their WP8 visit recognized on EDSM.  Please note that visiting Hypiae Phyloi LR-C D22 (the alternative stopover point that lies 300 LYs below Goliath’s Rest), will qualify as you visiting WP8 on EDSM.

      For the half dozen or so CMDRs who have already reached Goliath’s Rest and are logging your progress on EDSM, please make sure you visit Hypiae Phyloi LR-C D22 at some point before leaving for WP9 next weekend .

Distant Worlds 2

  • Newsletter 4
  • Departure from Polo Harbour marks the end of Stage 1.

    Stage 2: Building the Galactic Core Starport and discovering secrets at the heart of the galaxy.
    Stage 2 will offer new challenges as we begin to leave the last human outposts far behind, in addition some of the optional points of interest along the Stage 2 route may be in locations requiring large jump ranges, and/or the use of neutron boosts if you want to visit them!

    The main goal of this stage though will be to complete the 2nd phase of the community goal at the very heart of the galaxy when we arrive at WP7 in a couple of weeks time. After which the fleet will continue to explore the core, and gradually make its way out toward the far side.

    Fleet attrition will most likely begin to bite during this stage, as was the case with DW1, many commanders see Sagittarius A as an adequate goal in which to call it a day – and this is perfectly fine – DW2 will be no different!

Main Discussion

  • Mission Pack Speculation

Community Corner

  • Sagittarius Eye Issue 18
  • Anti-Xeno Initiative – the thargoids have upped the stakes at the moment. We have 5 systems in Incursion and 5 systems with an infestations. Defenders are stretched to the limit, with the AXI only able to defend one system last week.
  • Operation IDA – congratulations for completing Cleaver Prospect. They have now targeted the noob hammer Station of Cavalieri in the Electra system. (for the second time)
  • Battlecards News. Nothing has happened as far as the opposing party. However, the good news is that there has been movement on the Kickstarter Front, who are looking seriously at this matter now. Hopefully Good News  Soon(™)
  • Escape Velocity News, The latest remastered episode is available/ will be available soon.

  • Frontier Developments plc Notice of Results and Trading update
    • Frontier expects to report revenue of approximately £64 million for the period compared to £19 million recorded in the interim results last year.
    • Based on trading performance in the first six months of the financial year, combined with sales over the Christmas holiday period, the Board remain comfortable with the analyst revenue projections of £75 million to £88 million for FY19 (the year ending 31 May 2019) and anticipate that revenue should exceed the mid-point of this range.
    • Elite Dangerous has exceeded 3 million base game units.  Previously the Company has reported “franchise units” for Elite Dangerous whereby the Elite Dangerous: Horizons expansion, sold at the same price as the base game, was also counted as one unit.  The Company has now simplified unit reporting to state gross unit sales of the base game only.  For comparative purposes cumulative franchise units for Elite Dangerous are now over 4.3 million.
    • The development of Frontier’s fourth game franchise is on track, with release targeted for FY20 (between 1 June 2019 and 31 May 2020).
