Hello everyone! I haven't been accepted yet but I wanted to introduce myself a bit while I'm waiting. I'm a huge fan of sci-fi, as I'm sure most people here are. Everything from Star Trek to BSG, and more recently The Expanse (amazing) and Altered Carbon (also amazing, but it's more noir-cyberpunk than sci-fi, though it scratches that same itch for me).
This will be my first time playing Elite, and I'm extremely excited to dive in and experience everything
this game has to offer. I have no idea what kinds of things I'm going to enjoy doing the most in-game but I plan on finding out! I do want to try out PvP eventually once I get a feel for everything, but that'll obviously be on the open server. All I've done so far are most of the tutorials and some of the challenges from the main menu. The flying and combat feel so much better than the other big space games available, at least to me, and the sound design is absolutely incredible.
I can't help but feel like waiting until I'm in the group before I really dive into the actual universe though. Maybe this isn't really necessary, but I don't want the beginning of my experience to potentially be tainted by griefers. I'm not really sure if that's even common. I just hope that I submitted everything correctly. I made sure to follow the directions, so I would assume I just need to wait for the next wave of applicants to go through.
I must say, this is a really impressive thing that you all have going on here with Mobius. I first heard about the group from ObsidianAnt's video
and I'm very glad that I did. I really appreciate the dedication that's required to keep something like this going for so long. Assuming this game sucks me in like I'm expecting, I would love to be able to help out with the group one day. Having plenty of free time is one of my specialties.
I can be a bit of a loner and anti-social at times though, which is probably a bit surprising after seeing this overly long "introduction", lol.
Anyway, I look forward to flying along side some of you once I get in! Stay safe out there!
