Er... I think the last mention of X Online was about 10 years ago... It's... well, it at least won't exist for the forseeable future.

Tips for posting? Don't mention multiplayer. ;)

The reason so many players are against an "X-Online", if you will, is no further than the webpage for EVE online. It's a terrible business model, unfriendly forums, not newbie-friendly in the slightest, and you have to grind incessantly just to get up to snuff with the players who can spend 12+ hours a day on it. As it is, I can play X for a few hours here and there when I can, record my Xploits within the universe, and sit at the virtual "bar" here and trade stories with other pilots, imagining that they're all part of the same universe. I like using my imagination to concoct worlds rather than have them foisted upon me. Also, X is quite the cash cow for Egosoft as it is...

Here you can find the release date for X-Online.
(such as there is)

Which is probably a good place to leave this topic.

@ OP: feel free to ask other questions in a new thread.
