>So you have had over a year's worth of ED Season 1 for your 40 quid on Kickstarter. Not to mention the bonuses of having a Cobra MkIII or an Imperial Eagle to start with instead of a Sidewinder, and the bonus of being able to add a name into the NPC naming database. And a digital copy of Michael Brookes' official sequel to The Dark Wheel. I have a paperback version with my boxed edition and have read it a couple of times, and although his writing is not quite to the standard of the late great Robert Holdstock, its still a read.

I know what I backed and I know what I got. Why are you telling me
>Season 2 is another 29.99 including the discount. However its not compulsory. Why do you think it is? You are quite welcome not to pay it and still play the main game. You'll still get improvements and have done over the last year including major free updates like Wings, Community Goals, and Powerplay amongst others. One recent improvement that came with v1.5 the so-called Ships update, was the improved planetary textures. Although you won't be able to approach as close as the Horizons owners do, you'll still benefit by the improved planetary graphics. And you also will have the crafting system. No, you can't go and get the materials from the source ie planet surfaces, but you can still trade for them.
If I want to invest in atmospheric planetary landings when that comes
out then I can only assume I would need season 2 first. Unless they
budle it all together (whch is what I'm hoping for).
>Although Frontier's main focus is Season 2 development, the main game ie Season 1 will still get improvements and free updates. Pretty good for a game that you paid for in December 2013. So its not 70 quid now. Either nothing to continue to play ED Season 1 or 29.99 for both Seasons 1 and 2.
>Originally you said it was 120 quid. Sorry your guess was well out there.
No I am not. It was £130 for the lifetime expansion pass. I want ED
for atmospheric planetary landings. Say that comes out in season 4 it
would be 40 + 30 +30 +30 or so...That's 130 quid.

>Its completely free if you don't want to shell out for Horizons, and Frontier are still developing the main game. Even better value.

>Yes I can. You have had over a whole year of work, updates and bug fixes in their hundreds for your 40 quid Kickstarter pledge.
I stopped playig ED at the very start as I didn't want to get bored or
burn the game out before I got to do what I really wanted to do with
it....I'm still waiting.
Anyway. You can argue all you like on usenet. I'm never going to agree
with you. I've stated my point, as have you. That's it as far as I'm
concerned. Now I'm going to go back to playing Elite II for the time
