I was shocked to learn that Elite will have no form of global chat.
No : system , local , universe , guild ... nothing of that kind.
Only chat in game will be limited to targeted player that have to be next to you ( and maximum of 6 players) ?!.
I see this as horrible gameplay decision , especially now that they announced that the game is Online only.
Basically kills any hope this game could function on any social level - no guilds , no politics , no economy , no roleplay , no trading. Nothing. ( its almost on the level of fake multiplayer of dark souls )
Now. I can not believe this is in any way a gameplay decision. Because thisalone will drop game rating and any designer knows this.
I believe this is done in order to hide some engine deficiency or problem. Any idea what it could be ?
