Only in so much as it probably is still lurking on several players mission lists (such as BROADHEADs'),

.. like a Zombie in a graveyard searching for BRAINZZZZ.

No, actually I completed that Mission. I got the Delta Flyer and the pet that came with it. I even occasionally use the pet.

And Zombie is clearly vegetarian. He is searching for GRAINZZZZZ.

The major issue here is that two things happened:

- The Delta Flyer is now shop only
- The very interesting scanning missions got removed as well

Basically a very special gameplay mode/content got removed on top of charging players extra.


There is/was almost no "Shuttle" content. Seems they shelved development in this direction, which is a pity but probably better than more halfhearted shuttle stuff.

So not only are they taking a ship out of the game, they are also removing actual playable game content.
Thank our Overlords at PWE for this.

It would have gone with F2P anyway.

I don't know if you guys remember this but back when Dan was EP and under Atari, he flat out said that the reason he was able to offer ships for emblems or quest rewards was because there was a spreadsheet showing how many people would be expected to pay another month's subscription due to the grind involved.

If you remove subscription fees, you remove the reason they were offered in-game to begin with.

Wow. I did not know this. So it really does come down to "the most money with the least amount of effort" with these guys. They're always focused on short-term gain, rather than long-term sustainability. Man, that's frustrating.
