- Are there any well-established locations where players will meet up in the E:D galaxy?
- Are there player-based groups (like the Fuel Rats, but more social) that regularly gather in-game? If so, where?
I listen to the very awesome Radio Sidewinder and they sometimes mention bars for pilots to visit and get some R&R, or markets that sell exotic goods (there are no locations other than stations in the game yet, so maybe the markets are real, but I'm pretty sure there's no bars yet). I assume these are fake commercials intended to give the station a more realistic feel, but it made me wonder, if I'm lonely and want some guaranteed humanoid interaction, where can I go?
I realise there are traffic hot spots, such as the Sol system, stations that sell discounted ships, expansion systems, etc. There are also areas where players gather to race, which I have no desire to try and I'm not sure how you could spectate really, but it's pretty cool.
I'm looking for a "player-designated" hot spot, if that makes more sense.
