Soooo... I recently started a personal quest to get my Explorer Ranking back up, and exploring all the God Realms I've never gotten around to has boosted me back up to Worldwalker!
But then... I tried exploring Eventru's Realm. Yeah yeah, I know, it's supposed to be gone. Only it's not. It's still there in Cosmic Aetherspace. You can dock at it. And PORTAL EXIT. And subsequently get immediately kicked to the Portal.
This has left me rather upset. I actually went from #64 to #63 just by stepping off my aethership. This proves that that BIG CHUNK of rooms still counts for Explorer Rankings. And if we can't explore them, how are those of us unlucky enough to never have gotten the privledge of getting lost in there supposed to aspire to the top?
Another, less selfish reason is the quite real danger of people who get curious and take their own ship out there to explore, only to learn that if they step off their ship, they shunted back to Prime. And their ship stays docked there. And they can't get it back if they don't have a whistle, because any rescue attempts will get kicked to the Portal as well.
Maybe Eventru's realm can be recycled/repurposed into another area, like was done with Hajamin's temple? Exploring minds want to know!
