I purchased this game for one reason and one reason only... Genesis exploration.

Perhaps I was and AM confused. Probably Both. Only two things are for certain:
1: this is not a traditional MMO
2: Willy Nelson only smokes killer weed
Well I'm not sure how Genesis Exploration will be implemented if it's anything like the "explore so and so sector" missions that already exist, it will not be good. Sector space is an abortion, with it's huge grid making a floor in space and the inability to do anything except go to already mapped out systems. I mean they don't go for immersion one bit in this game. Forget walking around planets as well, they're all tiny instanced little maps that vanish into thin air as soon as you leave them. So much for that.

EVE has been doing it for something like 8 years and they are doing great. I wouldn't worry about the server end of things. There are sure to be issues that far outweigh this one.
Something to be said about repeating past mistakes over and over and not learning and improving upon something that has already been proven to work and work famously, hmm?
