Continuing the discussion from Blog: New Galaxies Launching Next Week:
Agreed. @joe, I’d petition for a slight modification where current players can remain active in up to two galaxies, but not limit the type. I.e., players in Main 1 can choose to join Main 2 but then would not be able to be active in either Skirmish galaxy.
This might be a preferred option for experienced players who (1) have invested a lot in the Main 1 galaxy and don’t want to just abandon it quite yet and (2) want to try the new features but don’t necessarily feel the need for the training wheels of a Skirmish galaxy and (3) don’t want to fall behind in the technology/development race vs. those who switch over to Main 2 right away.
In short, please let those of us who know the game well forego Skirmish and play both Main galaxies. This maintains the same server load/player but avoids the Hobson’s choice entailed in being limited to one Main galaxy.
