Specially on historically good squadrons, non HE pilots, doesnt matter the rank or the skill, get completely unrealistic victory achievements, something like 5 sorties 7 victories and so on,...Have you guys noticed this? Is this fixable?

I get a kick out of Aviatik BI and BII pilots having victories. They must have rammed any enemy plane out of the sky since they have no guns. winkngrin

Aris, I have noticed this on numerous occasions and have questioned it as well. Just seems out of whack.

MudWasp, good point about the unarmed B/R kites. Maybe they went the 'Flyboys' route and took out their opponents with a revolver - repeatedly. winkngrin

Yes it would be very nice if (elite level) new pilots, coming to an elite squadron, would start at 0 kills and missions for the MOST part.
Maybe (about 10%) arriving with kills/missions simulating a transfer from another squadron/jasta.

Well thank you but I check in here multiple times a day.
Not always talking much though.
Just playing away with this and E:D which I just picked up.
WOFF is my first love but I have voiced my few concerns with it (like the above), plus my great fondness ad nauseum, so I didn't want too...

It's is a "remake" of a game I used to play on my C-64 back in 1985. It's well done if your into space games.

It's not fixable by yourself. It is known to the devs though, but I don't know how high or low that is on the to-do list.

Best, think of it as hours since they entered your squadron. The 50, 100, 300+ whatever hours they would realistically have, with being in flightschool and other sqadrons etc., have not been carried over.

Duke, I also played the old Elite. Does this new version have a single player campaign or is it multi-player only?

Banjoman,

Elite Dangerous has 3 options:

Multiplayer - you interact with all other players that are playing multiplayer (as well as NPC ships)
Private Group - you join a private group that cannot interact with other human players other than those in the group and also the NPC ships.
Solo - effectively single player, you can only interact with the NPC ships.

All 3 option require an active internet connection.

I have been playing this since the Beta stage (May 2014) and am enjoying it immensely.

I had Elite on my (Dads really) BBC B 32K in about '84. Played it for a year and half nearly everyday. Then my save game tape got chewed up..can you imagine the frustration of that!! Elite is still prob my all time fav game I've played as it was the first one that really immersed me and made me a gamer for life. hat they could do back then with so little computing power is amazing. If developers could do similar now games would be even better.

The game is still in development and new features are added regularly. The next one coming which I look forward to is planetary landings and exploration and is called "Horizons".

I am a member of the Moebius group where the rule is no shooting at other human driven ships except in combat zones.

Is your group named after Moebius, the comic designer?

It would be nice, I love Moebius drawings. It's only the nickname of the guy who started the group. I think we are over 11.000 members now and have our own website : http://elitepve.com/

Edit : in fact I just checked the guy's name and it's written Mobius, might be something else then...
