I like MMO's but I don't like people. So being able to solo content as a single player is a must for me. I only like to group when I feel like grouping. The odd day in the year when I am feeling social. Defiance I like because it does have Ad hoc grouping through normal quests. Which forces me to be a little bit more social than I like to be, and takes me out of my comfort zone. I don't like the fact that as a single player in a lot of MMO's certain content is unavailable to me. I try to solo everything, which doesn't normally end well.
Overall it's up to the game, not to force me to participate, but to gently nudge me in that direction. I think Defiance does that quite well. Fallen Earth I found was a game that seemed to have a bit of Ad hoc grouping. Most MMO's you only really experience the full potential of the game if you join guilds etc, which is kind of too heavy for some people.
Now this in my opinion, is exactly why MMORPG's are deteriorating and becoming such dumbed down pieces of junk.
You sir, "fallenlords," and anyone else with this mentality for that matter, must immediately and forever LEAVE the MMO Genre in general.
You really dont want an MMO, I promise you. What you want can be found in MANY single player games, and console RPG's. You can play all that solo content till your heart is content, and then use matchmaking in some form to connect on that "odd day in the year when I am feeling social."
WHY THE F*** ARE YOU PLAYING MMO's IF YOU DISLIKE BEING SOCIAL?
WHY are you solo players ruining the only genre I used to love, and now just loiter around till it returns to its greatness....?
Any thoughts? I'll take both real MMORPG players, and those like this 'fallenlords' SPRPG players comments alike.~
