Well, after a few patches, a DoS attack, and a few days of relative stability. I've decided to open the four major factions for recruitment. This is not the start of the meta-campaign, but factions will now be able to organize and begin operating on a probationary basis. Fairly soon, I intend to online the advanced faction features, such as capital and heavy freighter construction. Head on over to the forum news post for more information on joining a faction.
