Development News – what have the devs said this week?

  1. New Lead Community Manager – Arthur Tolmie
    1. Most Memorable Exploration moment
    2. Favourite Warhammer 40K Legion
    3. What he flies
    4. He will also be on Thursday’s live stream
  2. Fleet Carriers Update patch 1 – Downtime and patch notes
  3. Bruce and Stephen (Which Stephen? THAT Stephen!!) were on the Thursday Twitch Stream. So no hints about Raxxla, Odyssey or anything else dev news.

In-Game Events – what’s happened this week?

  1. Operation IDA – Hayashi Orbital – HIP 9141
  2. Anti-Xeno Initiative – Still no new thargoid attacks apart from the pleiades and witch head nebula.
  3. Powerplay – The top three powers remain unchanged this with Mahon, Arrisa and Princess Blue Haired still in the top spots. Arrisa appears to be under quite a heavy attack this week and could have some turmoil systems by the end of this cycle.
  4. CQC – Having talked to folks on the CQC discord, it appears that since the new option to launch CQC from the Comms Panel has appeared, it’s now a lot easier to find matches. CQC wait times are down from half an hour (worst case example) to a couple of minutes.However, there does appear to be the occasional issue with the CQC lobby. If you get this, please report it to the issue tracker.
  5. The Dark Wheel is now about 69% in LFT 926. They had a bit of a loss when the BGS shenanigans caused us to lose a minor faction in 926 (Fong Wang) and that was replaced by a new faction who cost us 5% by popping in (as that’s how BGS does). There is a Player Faction in LFT 926 who are sympathetic of the Dark Wheel’s experiment and are graciously staying at the bottom in that system whilst TDW expands. Hopefully – Despite the setback TDW will expand again this week essentially beginning their quest! The Initiative was mentioned on Thursday’s live Stream and encouraged people to get onboard.  As ever – no official comments on anything – but YAY for community driven content! Incase you didn’t see it here is a clip qued up to the spot:
