This is so awesome that the word awesome is not awesome enough to describe it.

That's only because you use it so often.

I didn't know I'm that powerful :)

By the way, I noticed you changed you pledge and you probably no longer plan to be a naughty citizen, I'd comb your beard as a reward but I don't want to get too close in case it's all just a ploy to steal my cookie.

Yeah I got the Freelancer instead for a tiny nit extra. Has a lot of cargo for trading. And "trading"

Well not my fault you name popped out on that google spreadsheet, I'm not there so don't bother looking :).

There's still plenty of time to choose all the ships I want, hopefully there's gonna be plenty of monies for them as well.

Ah the spreadsheet, good eyes on you!

IT just seemed like better value to me, also there is room for a second player so I can invite some buddies on occasion.

Keeping an eye on this game. At the moment it's pretty much all talk though... haven't seen any actual gameplay. Do want to get this though. Either this or the Elite one... maybe both :O DECADENT.

I just really want an EVE-like experience that's not EVE, but has other people. Like if the X-games were multiplayer enabled or something.

I think this is pretty much as close as you get to that description. They recently unveiled some larger ships, a corvette and a tanker ship. Frigate class ships will be controllable, things like escort-carriers and full on carriers are a thing. So you can join a guild/clan/corp and play the big scale stuff OR you can stick to your single seater and go around hunting bounties, doing merc work or just exploring the galaxy.

I'm skeptical about this project. Seriously skeptical. The WC series started out great and then a series of awful decisions ran it into the ground.

But I've signed up, they've got my money. What the heck. Maybe it will be great.
