So..anyone pledged allegiance yet?

Postby SYN_Vander » Tue Jun 09, 2015 9:54 am

With the "Powerplay" update you can get extra perks and bonuses. Haven't fully read into it, a bit too complex for me I guess!! ;)

So anyone pledged already? Any tips?

No, I haven´t yet. My self chosen homesystem was not under the influence of any major Power, so I figured I wait a bit and be free to roam the universe on my own accord.
Besides PP seems to be something to really get involved in if you have plenty of time to play. If not, you will have a hard time to meet the higher requirments for the higher tiers and perks. I prefer to have PP as a backdrop to my own space story. It´s nice that something more is now going on behind the curtains.
Currently I´m involved in the Community goal of the great Sirius expedition, so I´m out exploring untill PP gets in motion and settles in. I prefer to watch it from a distance right now... :grin:

I wonder if something like this system of 'player allegiance/voting for goals' would work for Naval Action?

Looking at the PowerPlay page, there is a button for 'Buy Now'; is that for Elite or is this something you have to buy in addition to Elite?

Haven't fired it up for ages, when I did last Friday I updated and the servers were off line :roll:

It is for elite I think.

Powerplay is just another (free) update Bandy. That button must be to buy Elite Dangerous.
I think I'll do the same as Per (haven't been playing much last month anyway) and wait a little. My next personal goal will probably also exploring. I think there's a new cheap ship for this? I also noticed a lot of other new stuff like wanted criminals choosing not to attack you since you outclass them :).

There are actually two new ships for exploring, and one of them better than the other: The Lakon Diamondback Explorer. That´s the one on the pic above.
And also the Diamondback Scout, which is a bit more like a longrange attack scout and recon ship. The Explorer is very nice and cost around 2,5 MCr. You can get it slightly cheaper with a 20% discount at Wolf 406.
I´m using it now and I prefer it to the ASP actually!
