Better they stay in game... at least then ED can be described as a public service... keeping anti-social elements off the streets and in game. Kudos to Frontier!!!

    I enjoy working alone in the game. Avoiding other players is a great feature.

    Cheers, Phos.

    Same for us, after playing almost 30 years PC, we are happy, there is someone, we can avoid.

    I was in Open the other day.

    At Engineer bases.

    And Achenar.

    And I met...







    ..No one.

    Lol

    #OpenIsTheNewSolo

    Literally, all modes are equal. They're all empty. Lol

    I'm not saying "come to open", I'm just saying I went to Open, and found a large amount of nothing.

    The last player I met was on September 8th. Lol

    It would be kinda cool, if we could tell how many CMDRs are currently in any system (with a nav beacon), regardless of mode or even platform.
    Just so I can satisfy my curiosity. Lol

    I was there too recently! But I was in Mobius. I actually saw some other people, lol.

    Mind you, then I let a friend drive my SRV around the engineer's base for a bit (demonstrating VR), with the strict instructions not to touch the fire button. I go off and do something else for a bit, and when I come back I find that he's been shooting things up and has a 24 hour bounty on his head. It takes me an hour or so to run away from the base avoiding the weapons, and an Eagle follows me for 20km! My friend's excuse for ignoring my instructions was "But I presumed you'd be able to reset or reload?". Why would I emphasize not to shoot anything if that were possible, lol.

    Good to know the game works for people with differing personalities.

    Cheers, Phos.

    I feel Mobius is how Open should have been.

    Busy ports, docking queues, systems buzzing with life.....
    I won't even touch a CG in Mobus, takes far too long to get docked (how's that for a complaint, first world problem ).

    Mobius Group is what Elite: Dangerous was supposed to be in my opinion.
    We just need group admin tools adding and the max number of people in a single group increasing to limitless and it will be perfect

    And fortunately it is not and has small drawback for allowing players to set their own rules and avoid a full multiplayer functionality.

    That's a feature, not a drawback - in my opinion, of course.

    .... especially as multiple Open groups (modes) where the rules could be different to accommodate different play-styles were mentioned in the KS FAQ.

    Yeah....no. if you're at a CG in Open there is always tons of traffic. The notion that Mobius is busier and players have to wait for docking is a fabrication from whole cloth. The only people who truly think Mobius is somehow more active than Open are those who play there exclusively and rely on forum hyperbole to inform them of what's going on elsewhere
    Quitting the game to play the forum full time.

    From a per-instance perspective it's probably as​ busy.

    (At a CG.)

    I have never noticed that. Every time I've swapped modes Open CMDR's easily outnumbered Mobius players.

    I sort of agree with both these statements, oddly. I think Mobius is how FD envisaged Open (a little naively, perhaps). But I also like having Open the way it is now. I like the added risk when I play in Open, but Mobius is for when I just want to fly around without any cares (which is how I normally want to fly). I like what we have at the moment.
