Order of Open

Postby Lanceor » Wed Mar 22, 2017 6:36 am

Anyone else noticed a recently added player faction in Brib called The Order of Open?

Given the faction's name and proximity to Azrael, I can't help but think that it was created to oppose Mobius.

If it was indeed created by one of the usual suspects, the joke is on them - they'll have to spend a lot of time doing PvE to maintain their faction! :lol:

Yes I spotted them the other day as well and wondered if it was a player faction. If it is, then I'm a little disappointed with FD for allowing the name that refers so clearly to a game mechanic.

And maybe it is something completely different.

If this is true, what a joke.

The Order of Open has been there for a while (at least a few weeks), EDDB has them listed as a player faction but with no details, there is nothing listed on Inara, and a Google search returns nothing.

There seems to be no action or movement from them, so either it was a group who quickly got board, or a poor joke.

But we'll keep an eye on them.

The only other info that I found about this faction is that Brett C confirmed back in August last year that it was a player submisssion and that it would be added soonTM.

So far, nobody has claimed responsibility for the faction, nor does there seem to be any activity to boost its influence, so Xebeth is probably right.

Edit: Is this forum supposed to be visibie to those who are not logged in?

Yeah I remember first noticing them last October or November maybe, but had yet to see any info about them. Unless they're on the official ED forums or have a secret FB group, I'm inclined to believe they fell off before they even got going.
