Dealing with either a broken system, a credit exploit, or both, Frontier announced to its community this week that it was going to have to limit players from acquiring too many of a certain type of Elite: Dangerous mission for a while.
“For mission balancing reasons, we have made a change to the Massacre Skimmer mission type: Commanders will now only be able to take up five of these missions types at a time,” the studio said. “This may be something we change in a future update and if it does, we will let you know.”
This swift fix was in response to piles of money flooding into player accounts thanks to the exploit. Reactions among the community are mixed, with some blasting Frontier for limiting fun and funds and others backing up the studio for fixing the exploit before money became meaningless.
