Going from bridge to tactical hasn't worked for a lot of people, the only sure fire was transwarping out of there.
Every time go to Arcanus arm and do a mission (the 3 systems tour) it not only takes me to
"Empty map#7" as it says above the minimap but the exact same time many others are transported there as well.
I tested this three times and it happens every time not only do I end up there but others suddenly do as well, so it can't be coincidence.
The last time there was somebody else and his BO's in the empty map with me we had transported there at the exact same time.
While doing exploration dailies, i got into Empty map, faling for over 3-4 min until i hit "ground". that happand already to 3 of my toons, and there is no way out, you cant beam up. even logging out and in after more then half hour didnt got me out of there.
