New elite ranks are now possible to attain for all factions, with corresponding new equipment, weapons and spacecraft available. Elite ranks have a unique application process and a limited membership, ensuring only the top pilots can achieve such status.
Parasitic Orbiters have been added, and a new Advanced Skill- Orbiter Mastery- to combat them, as well as to improve upon beneficial orbiters. Though parasitic, these new orbiters may offer some unexpected benefits.
In addition to many other minor improvements, a Payment Log has been implemented, giving a seamless history of all financial transactions, and servers have been updated in preparation for even more new additions to the game in the future.
