What do you think? Do feel that Odyssey compliments the rest of the game or feels completely different? I will be interested to hear what you think!



Powerplay reaches 300th week

Monday 1st March, 2021 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 0 comments
I thought id just make a quick news post. Powerplay has now reached its 300th week! Powerplay was intended to group players together, so they could fight other players to gain control of universe. Players would get a weekly cash bonus and could access some unique rewards; many being underwhelming but a couple of them being useful.

Frontier never expanded on powerplay, and I felt that over-time was forgotten about. Nowadays I feel that aligning with a power can often be a hindrance, often npcs are sent to attack you from opposing sides. Frontier was thought that powerplay was a major feature of the game.

Anyway, I thought id just let you know. How many of you guys still participate in powerplay?
