Unfortunately, that thread is from 2 months back, and nothing heard since. We've only just reached the breaking point of Mobius.
Since nothing happened two months ago, I am not holding my breath waiting for something to happen this time around. I do hope they can remove cmdrs who haven't logged in for months though. I know several members of Mobius who haven't played at all since the release of 2.1 and I seriously doubt they will be back. And since I know very few of the 20k members, I assume there are a lot out there that aren't around anymore, but are taking up spots in Mobius
I agree there is a lot of dead wood. I started a thread about it here
, but no one took me up on it. I still figure there will be way less than 20k after the cull. It is taking a lot longer to happen than expected, but then who thought the beta would last more than a month? We really should have Season 3 by now, imho, but we are still waiting for the Commander Creator, Multi Crew, and some surprise first. I really got the impression, from wherever, that this cull would be done - eventually
. It is becoming a bit of a priority now
, so maybe it will actually happen sooner than later.
