Main discussion

  1. Main discussion – I’m making the assumption that whatever the state of Odyssey, people still want Elite to continue. Most of the detractors of Odyssey have said, “Right, I’m off to play NMS or Star Citizen etc”, which, of course, lowers player numbers in protest. However, the problem is with most Live Service games, if the numbers fall too much, then the game gets pulled. So “How do you protest about bad updates without losing your live service game?”
  2. What happens if the developer doesn’t take heed?

    Star Wars Battlefront II got changed because people refused to buy the game. WOW is having a crisis due to several lackluster updates and then the revelations about their working culture. SWG is the prime example of what happens after an update goes wrong and the community deserts it. 

Mostly Clueless

From The manure Man. :- We don’t need to board ship with the SRV to transfer Inventory , you just need to stand in the boarding spot , go to right side menu , and on the inventory panel there is a option to transfer , and you can manage all your inventory both ship and srv on the fly
