2.8% is a running meme, unfortunately new people to the forums sometimes don't get the jokes used here.For real? Pardon my ignorance. I didn't know we were so far advanced. Where do I look up those figures? EDSM?
Discovery? These things aren't just recorded in game, I have spent a while visiting systems discovered and explored by early explorers based on records maintained by EDSM, the EDSM star map records the discoverer of each system submitted to it, are you going to ask them to also wipe their database when you newly "discover" a place so you can go around proudly boasting a list of "first discoveries," because if you claim it and people go to EDSM star map to look up the system it's going to have someone else's name on it!"Hey, guess what? It has now been 24 months since Commander X has quit the game and tons of systems have opened up for discovery tagging!"
