Two weeks of Elite Dangerous Mayhem events begin today

Elite Dangerous is kicking off a two-week series of Mayhem events tonight. These are designed to draw the community together, test upcoming content, and stress the servers.

Frontier posted a schedule of the Mayhem livestreams and events, which includes speed landings, slalom races, close quarters combat fight nights, recon missions, and treasure hunts. Some of the events are exclusively geared toward the Xbox One community.

Elite also announced that it will be adapting to virtual reality platforms in the near future. SteamVR and HTC Vive support was mentioned as coming out for free later this year.

TL;DR Rewards for ~30 most enthusiastic players. 

p.s. I like how Frontier does not do loyalty events (giveaways) in ED like many other devs do in their games. Either the game is really popular or FD isn’t familiar with typical MMO routines.

GoJammit Yeah exactly the same for me, just don’t have time for test servers anymore

I think that’s kinda lame. Especially if it is stuff that does not make its way to the live server. I’ve kinda burned myself out in test servers in my time playing mmo. My time is limited and I have little desire to spend any of that time not progressing toward anything. I stopped playing Elite when I knew it was going to wipe. I won’t touch SC for the most part. Just got more important things to do. And more live games to play.

Also see that Frontier have integrated SteamVR / HTC Vive support
which is pretty cool –

nice to have VR options when the consumer units become available.
P.S Game is currently 40% off (£18 / $27) for this week.

:( Only on the test server? I would like to see stuff popping off in the live server once in a while. I missed whatever rush their may have been at launch.
