Hi!I am also impatient and my foot is tapping hard.
There are a few concerns rattling around my puny skull though. Am i setup correctly? I dont mean ship build as im all over that, but social wise, is this going to be played in a private group? I am on the discord group but there is soooooo much going on on that platform im not too sure which channel to be in and is there anything else i have missed to get the full experience of this exped.
There is a private group, information on joining that here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/285918-Announcing-FleetComm-the-exploration-focused-Private-(pc)-Group?highlight=fleetcom
I believe consoles have their private groups going on too but I'd defer to one of the console leads on that question. I'm sure the details will get announced by them shortly anyway.
Based on DW1 I'd say a good 80-90% of people will be in that private group but from personal experience I can say it was very busy in Open and Mobius on DW1 last time so not being in the PG won't make or break it but it is highly advised.
If on PC follow step 1 and 2 on that link and it should be simple enough to get added, may take a bit for the group admin(s) to get around to adding but they will definitely be doing waves of additions before the expedition launches. If we get to the start of January and you aren't in then ping one of the organisation team for a follow-up.
As for Discord - There will soon be new channels created specifically for DW2, probably towards the close of the year so we are all set for the estimated mid-January launch. For now any questions or discussions on DW2 are probably best put into the "fleetcomm-general" text channel as there's a lot of people there that can help out. Or hold fire until the specific DW2 expedition channels are raised.
