We have recently received news that Frontier Developments have taken action in response to the "enslavement" of new players in the Elite Dangerous galaxy. Frontier have reached the judgement that the actions that these players have taken breaches the ED Code of Conduct by "deceiving and exploiting other players". As such, the players involved in this activity have been excluded from Open play, and the assets which have been acquired through these means, including the fleet carriers, are being removed from the game.
This decision is being appealed against at the moment, so it is possible that it may be partially or fully reversed. However, the "slavers" have reached out to us and asked us to share this information on their behalf.
The New Pilots Initiative as a group are not taking any position on the decision, as it is entirely within the the gift of Frontier to determine what does and does not break their Code of Conduct. However, I would like to offer the condolences on behalf of Operation Chainbreak to the affected Commanders, both captives and captors.
I am sure that there will be strong feelings on both sides with this outcome, however, I would ask that everyone make sure that they treat each other kindly over what will be a very emotive subject.
