    Morning Brett

    With PAX east out of the way, is there any further news on the list you mentioned - the one that looked like there maybe 40 rejections from the first pass?

    Thanks

    Before I get more PM's and bombarded with people wanting to know: I am awaiting a list of approved and rejected minor factions.
    Brett,

    Why not release the list of factions that you know have been rejected now?

    I see nothing to gain from holding onto that information, but it will frustrate and possibly anger people who could have resubmitted their application as soon as they knew.

    Your last update on the list was back in December 2017. We are now in Q2 2018!

    Trickling information about rejections on a weekly basis would be good for the community. That way you will also not have to contend with a mass influx of reapplications in one go either!

    Please put the rejections out of their misery and let us all know sooner rather than later.

    Anyone with me on this guys and gals?

    Regards,
    Gus

    Well said. From what i can gather our PMF is facing a second rejection, a 4 month wait from our second application is too long without news. I fear that under the current format of application we could be waiting well over a year to get accepted. For me and others this is just too long, and i know i have mentioned this before but doing BGS just to keep a space open for your faction is soul destroying when you have barely any communication.

    What are the reasons for the 7 Faction limit? and why was this never mentioned in the application thread?

    I love this game, I loved the original but things are different now... I'm no longer a kid who has hours and hours to waste on a game. My time is limited and too valuable to spend keeping factions at bay especially when you have no idea if your PMF application is being looked at next week, next month, 3 months or whenever "Tom the work experience kid" has been asked to check the systems you have applied for!

    I'm not a one game player, but i was for sooo long after Elite Dangerous came out. Now though..... I switch on the xbox and dont even consider it anymore. I can always find something else to do, with an objective. The objective for us as a PMF was too build something, to carve out our own part of the galaxy. Something to relate too. The one thing Elite Dangerous lacks is clear objectives.... sure you can say becoming ELITE, or getting a certain ship and so on are objectives. But when you have played for as long as you have and you have done all of these things..... what else is there?

    The PMF. An identity, a community and an objective.

    For myself and most of my group now, without those things it's just not engaging enough.

    September 2017 here, all Brett can respond with is "waiting on engineering staff"

    What is aggravating to me is the fact that people are still on this waiting list a full year later; and I know for a fact that some waited over 12 months and walked away.


    This is worse than US government work.

    Again, I do not have the exact folks that have been rejected on this pass yet.

    I want to know myself so i can begin emailing folks as well.

    The game dev (engineer) who manages the additions/rejections/etc was out of office late last week on holiday, so things got a little backlogged.

    It should be well noted, this is the first pass results. The scripts used to validate system locations, pmf govt type vs sys govt type has NOT been run yet.

    When it states "Sys in use" does that mean another PMF is present there, or is the system full? Or is it a different kind of restricted system? It isn't very informative as to what is wrong there.

    That's also been a constant question in the back of my head - does another PMF being in a system by expansion restricts its application?

    Thank you Brett for this first list and information.

    Yes. If a PMF is there, even by expansion, it's ineligible.

    Sys in use denotes all given systems applied for are in use, at capacity, or restricted.
