Starbase Community News: September 2021


Community Manager
Aug 9, 2019

Welcome to the very first Early Access issue of our monthly community feature, Starbase Community News! After a short break we are back with this luxuriously long and colourful issue of the Community News, bringing you the coolest things known to endokind.

This issue marks two important dates in Starbase history: Starbase Alpha ended on the 26th July, and the much-awaited Starbase Early Access launched on the 29th July! We have welcomed a flood of new players and player content, so enjoy browsing this very special issue and see what your fellow endos have been up to - both during the final weeks of Alpha testing and the first months of Early Access!

As our Alpha testers might remember, we ran another server test on the 8th July, which brought a flood of players, lag and general hubbub to the old Origin station. On the 25th we celebrated the final hours of Closed Alpha on Origin. Some players congregated later at Elysium to salute the final minutes of Alpha, sailing proudly into the sunset with the same community spirit that marked the entire Closed Alpha period.

Then, the long-awaited date arrived at last, marking the beginning of a new era for all endokind. Instead of one, there are now 30 Origin stations on which to wreak havoc. The first days of Early Access were memorable in many ways.
