Elite Dangerous is considering revamping its Powerplay mode, and it’s not going to make everyone happy, especially solo players. Powerplay, you’ll recall, is sort of a factional territorial war in the game whereby players ally with powerful NPCs and their space and resources.

But Gummy felt he could operate under the radar because normally small private WoW servers do not reach the attention of Blizzard.
