True, it is better for the dev to be honest and admit he/she is leaving something out because they can't do it right rather than promise it will be fantastic and deliver something broken. I guess there is still a chance that might work on a MP addition that is tactical combat only. Perhaps, they are just waiting until they can get MP done right before adding it. Also, is anyone curious what the big secret is about cross-connectivity between BE and Starships? I mean we already know that Starships uses the same affinities. I think in the PAX panel, it was mentioned that players could carry over their affinities, state of war, etc to a starships and yet Sid is saying that it is still a big secret. Is it possible that there is a big BE expansion on the way that will connect with Starships? 300th post!
