    Maybe when Modules/Alphas/Betas become available.
    Though this thread has a lot of info/viewers, so maybe just rename the title of the thread eventually.

    Yea, I can't wait for this game. :toast: I can't wait to fly around using my Nvidia Surround setup. I'm going to be a smuggler! I just need to find me a Wookiee and I'm set.

    I enjoyed Eve for a few months, but the monthly fee was just too much for a casual gamer like me.. I've actually still got 1 or 2 ISK sitting in my inv back in the game :), caught them on sale at Amazon, paid $38 for 3 of them, used one, decided I had other things to do, and let em sit. I'll have to reactivate to start again, so not sure what I'll do...

    Freelancer was awesome for combat, but I definitely missed the economy of Elite. Never actually did X series, altho I considered Albion prelude not too long ago...


    I agree, same here. I've put some money in a few F2P games (Tribes:Ascend, Gonna back Rift when it goes in June..), I figure if they keep me occupied for at least a couple of months, I owe the developers at least a month's WoW subscription.

    Hey, count me on that! I'm all up for a Corp :)

    I'm a Freelancer, passed on the other ships for now, may consider one at some point, but I let KS get the better of my wallet, and definitely looking thin back there :slap:

    Hey, 'Rocker, hook us up!! We need at least a Space Sim one with Elite:Dangerous comnig as well :):toast:


    Grats!!! Still awaiting my Bronze :(


    Not sure what we'll get from SC, but I'm stoked as crap about it, and I think we'll get enough to be worth what we put in. Between that and Elite, oughta have my Space Fix in.


    Keep us up about the potential Corp!!:toast:

    300i is so ugly and so is the freelancer.. but I like how they have ships to fit everyones taste.

    Yeah I agree... and I have both ships! I'm not too concerned with looks, but more with functionality. I think I'm going to go for the militarized version of the 300i, I'll get a tractor beam for the freelancer along with extra cargo space.

    I just upgraded my 300i to a 325a, I really hope Chris Roberts stops releasing ships and upgrades, I can't stop upgrading my ships, and the game's not even out yet :(

    I'm fully committed to this game and can't wait to try the alpha, erocker, you said you're getting a Freelancer too? You can count on my services to provide you with some escort on interdiction missions! :rockout:

    Yeah, no kidding, that Constellation looks mightily tempting... What ship are you getting RCoon?

    I'm happy we can provide support for this game, I just wish it was 2014 already :p

    All I could afford was the Mercenary package right now, but I intend to buy a few upgrades before launch next year, nothing large or freighter-like, but a good assault ship/cruiser.

    The Aurora looks like a really nice ship to start the game, as for an assault ship, the Hornet probably fits the bill. I wonder how hard it'll be / how much grinding you'll have to go through to actually afford an upgrade using the in game economy.
