Mobius is full, how do i join?

Postby AndyB » Tue Dec 27, 2016 7:10 pm

as a couple of people have already noticed the original Mobius group has now reached its cap of 20,000 members and so no more can be added.

for now we are asking people to join Mobius PvE and suspending the time zone element of the groups. FD have said that they are making some changes to groups with the next update so hopefully we will be able to make space in the original group then, if not we will need to open another account to use to create a third group.

much like before we are asking people that if they wish to join Mobius PvE to play with friends, they leave Mobius as soon as they are accepted into the other group, that will free up a few spaces for those new players for who a majority of their friends play in Mobius.

Moving to 4 or 6 groups?

Is FD really going to do this? Every time it seems to come up, it's seems like it's not a high priority for them and/or there are serious refactoring issues with the matching.

Do we want to just go to 3? As I brought up before, why not nail it down by UTC on 6 hour (4 groups) or 4 hour (6 groups)?

    Mobius 0006: UTC 00-06:00 => ACT 10-16:00, CET 01-07:00, USEST 19-01:00, USPST 16-22:00
    Mobius 0612: UTC 06-12:00 => ACT 16-22:00, CET 07-13:00, USEST 01-07:00, USPST 22-04:00
    Mobius 1218: UTC 12-18:00 => ACT 22-04:00, CET 13-19:00, USEST 07-13:00, USPST 04-10:00
    Mobius 1824: UTC 18-24:00 => ACT 04-10:00, CET 19-01:00, USEST 13-19:00, USPST 10-16:00

I used 6 hour blocks for the 4 groups, and it's to be considered a "loosely."
Instead, we could also do 6 groups of 4 hour blocks too ... also very "loose" in blocking.

    Mobius 0004: UTC 00-04:00 => ACT 10-14:00, CET 01-05:00, USEST 19-23:00, USPST 16-20:00
    Mobius 0408: UTC 04-08:00 => ACT 14-18:00, CET 05-09:00, USEST 23-03:00, USPST 20-00:00
    Mobius 0812: UTC 08-12:00 => ACT 18-22:00, CET 09-13:00, USEST 03-07:00, USPST 00-04:00
    Mobius 1216: UTC 12-16:00 => ACT 22-02:00, CET 13-17:00, USEST 07-11:00, USPST 04-08:00
    Mobius 1620: UTC 16-20:00 => ACT 02-06:00, CET 17-21:00, USEST 11-15:00, USPST 08-12:00
    Mobius 2024: UTC 20-24:00 => ACT 06-10:00, CET 21-01:00, USEST 15-19:00, USPST 12-16:00
...
Other than the group admins having to approve new members, I think we could go ahead and try the 4 (or even 6 ...) groups and see how many move over. Then slowly, as more members join, start asking people to drop from the two (2) current groups. I think it's worth the experiment, as long as the group admins don't mind the overhead.

Otherwise, forget I said anything. ;)

I tried quitting the group about 2 months ago. I was out, but magically was back in later. I'll try again and see if it sticks. I won't have a use for Mobius unless I move back to the bubble, and then, only if it is a single massive group - not a bunch of small groups where you will almost never see another player outside of CGs and popular systems. Come on FD - get your shit together or offer an effing Open PvE server! :evil:

Seems that Möbius' situation is now overflowing onto the the other forum.
Hope it gets resolved with the next update. I think Möbius PvE is also reaching max cap no?

FD is supposed to cull members that haven't logged in for 6 months.

Has it been confirmed that they can and are doing this?
