There's a lot of truth in that, from my perspective. But, Elite Dangerous is really the only game I'm interested in playing and I've been playing it from day one of release in 2014 on the PC, although I did take a break for 14 months for Skyrim SE and Zelda BotW.I think the problem here is when players solely concentrate on the one game and devour the content faster than the company's can churn out new content. I have just had that with Star Trek online after 8 years of playing solid and have now made the switch to ED so i don't think i will be having that issue any time soon now i have made the switch to here but i can fully sympathize with your predicament and it must suck when you love a game that much but it simply doesn't offer the reasons you loved the game in the first place. It might be best if you spread your gaming across more than one game as to not ending up as you have. I wish you luck in what ever adventure you take up next but i am sure you will be back once more updates and content gets released in the future.
Here's a question. As I don't play any other MMO's, is the development slow for this game in comparison to others? If you look at it, the last proper DLC we had for this was 2015 - 2016 and it's not going to be 2020 until we get more fully paid content. Is this normal? From what I've seen (which is hugely limited) it isn't. Genuine question.
