Distant Worlds II Event Reasons why waypoints are not released early !

As i have seen(and been asked) why.
1) In case organisers want to get there to set up or sort stuff before we arrive.
2) To stop CMDRs jumping the gun and rushing through all the waypoints.
3) To stop the determined ganker in his slow ship(full of weapons) , getting there first.
(determined ganker = A very small section of the ganker community that will go further than the start)
 
I will have to say it's number 2 because some cmdrs will just go to the way points ahead of time and rush to the finish,also they want the event to last to 300 days as well .
 
Distant Worlds is much about the meetups and socialising at waypoints, about doing things together. Would not work if all WP were known in advance. Also people would probably spoil anything special that may be encountered enroute. There would be tagging-goldrushs and so on.
 
Its got nothing to do with PvPers waiting at WP's in open, that's part and parcel of the game and players who want to avoid that can drop into their own PG with their own friends or join Mobius (fleetcomm being closed now). There's a whole lot more to this expedition than racing to the next WP as soon as its announced. The expedition is about the journey and discoveries, and impromptu meetups between WPs, not the WPs themselves.

There are lots of POIs charted on EDSM to check out along the route.. take your time... explore them!

Plenty of places to go and visit, as well as to make discoveries. I just came back from the Eagle nebula and my route back was very pristine. If you go up/down a little bit, you'll hit a lot of undiscovered systems with plenty to see. Part of the premise of the expedition is to explore and make new discoveries. We're far enough out where that's very possible.

The underlying goal of DW2 is to enjoy yourself. As long as you're doing that, mission accomplished! There's no rush.
