I can't recommend this game anymore. I'll try to summarize;

1. Everything you ever do, especially if it involved using your brain or skill, is nerfed and nerfed, making more of a grind.
2. After wave(s) of nerfs, they implement buffs (engineering); you need to not feel quite as much of a nerf, and feel "buffed." Note the word FEEL buffed. You're going to have everything you love nerfed again, or over-buffed in another update.
3. The economy of this game shouldn't even exist except as lore, because nothing you ever need comes from the changing actual economy. You can't buy items for getting things buffed. Goodness no, you must grind for that "buff." This also means no profiteering off of "lazy" people that don't want to grind for 70 hours for "buffs" that are really more often than not un-nerfs or are already pre-compensated for in the game.

Seriously I have a partialy engineered Python now mysteriously failing to outmanuever Beluga and Anaconda, much larger vessels and now plasma acc. aren't even doing damage to eagles upon hit... My hatred is unending. This isn't just 1 fluke incident. I was the best Python/Large Ship pilot of all my friends and I know my skills wouldn't decline this much. I don't even want an Anaconda as the Python's supposed to be more manueverable and I'm waiting to get an Imp. Cutter, despite having the money, the grind for the CUtter rank is horrendous.


TL DR; Slightly exaggerated example; you are nerfed by 20%. They offer a "buff" of 15% either before or after the nerf, but the nerf always happens eventually. The grinding for the buff is worshipping the devs to be un-nerfed, and enjoying it, as their not-so-subtle tweaking renders everything you ever loved to ingeniously conceive of less valuable and less valuable.

Also known as riding exploits and/or grinding; the grind itself no matter what takes long enough other people that DO use exploits get MOST advantage, and there are too many, despicable game. Someone got to Elite in my group of friends before me because of exploits. This entire game is cheated and cheated, and those of us following legitimate paths are screwed and screwed. Hate this game.

It honestly, everything about it, feels like a communist regime in the "economy."

I tried to stay with elite, but the lack of content and boredom finally took over. That game has potential, but the devs want no part of it.

Star Citizen Rules!!!

Equality is a myth.

In order to ensure rights for one, you must destroy rights of another.
 

Keep calm and wait for Naval Action.

Git gud.

Every day a unicorn named Germanica speaks to me & guides me. People may not like it, but fact is, I'd be dead without her in my life.

@Ruthless4u

It's adorable that you think Star Citizen will ever amount to anything.

At least Elite is playable.

Unlike OP, I know how to have fun in Elite. A lot of fun. So much so that I just can't bring myself to play anything else for the longest time. In fact tomorrow I'm going to further my ED experience with voice attack and HCS VP.

And yes I know Elite has no legs or atmospheric worlds... I don't care. I want to fly a spaceship, and Elite does that very well.

But star citizen is playable. Unless I've played something else with its name lol.

 

Dont get me wrong, I'm not dropping hundreds or thousands on the game, just bought the base package for the PU and squadron 42 and 1 ship.

 

I can wait, got another kid on the way so won't have time to play it for at least 2 years anyways lol.

I'm not very good at the combat so I focus on defensive measures and have steadily improved that but the real treat of Elite to me is the exploration aspect. So I usually do missions to make mone so I can always ensure I have missiles and fuel to keep me safe and able to explore.  Really good fun and relaxing to just fly around in.
