I've been playing Elite for a while now, enjoying a variety of activities. Usually, I set myself little projects (last one, for instance, exploring the new Guardian sites and getting all materials for the new Guardian fighters)
Last week I decided to join the Distant Worlds 2 Expedition as a late-entry, got into my trusty exploration-built Asp Exp, carrying some Guardian treasures for RP, and headed for the Omega Mining Operation. It was a sweet journey so far already, the frequent supercharged jumps on the neutron star highway broken up with beautiful sights and planetary explorations. It was the first time I decided to play in Open through and through, with the opportunity to meet other commanders to share the ride.
After a 5000-6000Ly journey, I was looking forward to see some friendly human faces. I finally made it to the Omega Mining system, only to drop in, getting a dire warning of a PVP ambush, and high-waked out of there into a random system, before my Asp Exp came to harm. Gee, that didn't quite go as planned. Of course, the DW2 basecamp was virtually deserted, all fled because of the brute aggression.
Anyways, I decided to give Mobius a go as recommended group for DW2 latecomers. Looking forward to see you in the game.
(Playing on PC. If you see me around, CMDR RIVEN DELL, Synth-Orange paintjob Asp Explorer with orange drives, designation: LIRON DISCOVERY)
Question: Are Mobius people who explore on DW2 usually logging in on their respective timezone server or do they use Mobius Factions?
