After all this time, it seems a bit of short notice.
Even if we're grouped by time zones, there will be a lot of overlap, especially on weekends. I can see having two kickoffs, but I think it would be better if we all joined the same private group - or did I miss that?
I'll hopefully be getting my VR HMD early next week. So I don't know if that's a good thing - having more time to mess with it while on a slow exploration, or a bad thing - not having stations and etc. to experience in 3D.
Also, didn't they just break wings again. Might it be better to wait until they are fixed?
We are all in the same group. Mobius
Seriously, I mentioned in a previous post that I would be setting the date as soon as I came back from Vacation. I am sorry if it is bad timing for some, but no matter what time I set it is going to be an issue for some people. There have been 3 people that have said it is bad for them, and everyone else that showed interest have been silent.
Yes wings are borked, but you don't need wings to do this run. Even the other members of the A-Team are not going to be going side by side. We need wings to get into the same instance (for the kickoff on Noshaq) and that works. Its travelling as a wing that is fubar. We can work around it quite easily as well as the fact that not everyone will be taking the same route. In fact, I expect not everyone will actually leave this weekend. Some of us will head out right away, some of us may have to sober up and will leave the following day.
Remember this is a Self Guided Tour. You do not have to start when we do, or be at the kickoff but can still take part. I have listed the itinerary and everyone is free to do it at their own pace, and that includes when they leave and how fast they move, so everyone that wants to take part can, even if they can't make the Kickoff Schedule. I made the destination plans in three parts as a way to let people know that they can take part on any part of the tour. Short, Medium, and Long. Not everyone can do all the parts be it because of time, space madness, or other reasons.
There are no planned meetups along the way, though I would imagine that there would be some impromptu ones.
The date I set was reasonable in my mind but if this is a major issue then people who have said they are interested need to speak up.
So far there has been an overwhelming silence about it. I have no idea if it is because the people that have expressed interest are not around, or have no interest. Unless I hear from more people that they can't make it, the planned departure stands.
I have mentioned it on the Discord channel, and posted it on Twitter as well with hope that more people will want to take part. And the Discord Channel I have setup for the trip has only 5 members including myself. I assume that it is not really needed since Mobius Discord Server has been redone and is quite active now (that was not the case when I proposed the tour).
And if no one shows up at the start, that is okay as well. After all, it is all about playing the game YOU want to play. I hope a few will, because I know a few of us will be sitting outside Searle Point on Noshaq come Saturday Night. And the post with the location will always be here, so people who find it later can do the tour themselves.
See you there
